Santa Clara Golf & Tennis Club
dry and bare fairways in spots
For the rate I paid on Good Friday, I really can't complain but most holes were backed up and we were not able to finish before dark, only played 17 holes.

Drought conditions aside, the course is very well maintained. The staff and restaurant staff great.

Some Things Never Change
Still a pace of play nightmare at Santa Clara. There a couple groups of regulars that shall remain nameless that are here pretty much the same time weekend mornings and these groups make the pace of play problem what it is, they could not care less (nor could the course marshal) about their effect on those behind them. They should have been banned from here long ago but again, the course management does not care and never has. Greens were in decent shape. Bunkers OK. Fairways have been ruined by lack of care and the recent installation of the poorly planned out in-course roadways put in to facilitate making this a parking lot for 49ers games. And then charging nearly $70 to play here? And needing a $5 key deposit like people are going to walk away with the 25 cent cart key? And growing weary of the foundation begging on the par 3's, I came here to play golf, not do charity work. Avoid this place if you can until they get it together. If they get it together.

Fairways were more covered though there are uneven spots near greens and stil large patches of brown/bare ground. Greens were fine.

Nice to see that the course is in the progress of trying to bring back areas on the course damaged because of the drought. Needs to fill in bunkers with more sand.

Typical American Golf course
Like most other American golf owned/ runned facilities, the condition is a 3 at most. Bare spots in the fairway. Tee boxes are like in random places that have grass left. The greens roll pretty slow. But sstaff was very friendly and the pace was good. Not bad value for the money.
I would come back because this place definitely needs local knowledge with all the blind tee shots. I should do better next time.

Slow play - slow greens
The title review says it all. I took my 10 year old daughter and her friends to play. they are not biginners ... They had to wait in every shot. We quit after 16 holes could not take it anymore!! The greens are slow and inconsistent . I did not see a Marshall all day !! No one to help the pace of play. If we played in a reasonable amount of time I would have givin a higher rating. I had played this course in the past and the greens were much quicker and consisatant

Good value if you have the time
Some fairways were bare in spots and you were hitting off of dirt. None of the dirt was marked as ground under repair. The layout for playing is very hard to follow and even the holes themselves are marked poorly for finding yardage. Greens felt like they hadn't been mowed in the last two weeks and were very slow and inconsistent. Price for the money was a very good value though as it came with cart for 18.
