Santa Clara Golf & Tennis Club
Started at 12:15 pm on a Saturday. After 5 hours on the course and 3 holes left to play we gave up.
At check-in we were told the pace of play was 4 hrs 30 min.... more like 5 hrs 45 min.

Good pace of play and nice greens.
The pace of play was great - 4 hrs. Greens were smooth and can be fast if you are above the hole.

Too expensive for twilight!
longest 14 holes I've ever played in my life! Doesn't anyone understand pace of play? 1:52 tee time no chance of finishing! Here's what I'd do, every group that was near my tee time that didn't just leave gets a free voucher because that would be fair!

The course was in pretty bad conditions. A lot of fry dead areas. So many nice courses in the area I can't see myself ever playing this course again or recommending it to anyone. The staff was friendly. The snack shack was closed and we had to get food from the main restaurant which took forever.

Very good for a Muni...
This is my home course and I play it regularly. The course is relatively flat but it's not too boring or repetitive. Most greens are receptive and amenable to different approach shots. Par 3 are generally medium long, most par 4s have dog legs, and par 5s generally short. Several holes tend to have significant wind. On the negative, they could use more on-course marshals since many golfers cut in and no enforcement against slow play. Overall, a fun course to play.

fairways need attention
the course can be very, very much better with litle more work on fairways and ruff

Nice flat but rolling fairways trees open off the tee
Liked this course when I played the back nine which they do in the early mornings, didn't play the front. I work near here and didn't expect much since I've not heard people talk about the course when I'm out and about. We played the back tees and distance was good, there weren't any of those 340 yard par 4s. Open off the tee which I like, I'm a double digit handicapper and I don't need to have to thread the needle with a driver. Nice sand traps in tee ball landing area and surrounding the green, sand in these traps was nice - none of those rock hard traps. Par 3s were longer, I think one was 200 and the other maybe 180. Greens had nice contour and longer putts were a challenge. Flat but nicely rolling fairways, I walked which I normally don't do - great course to walk. I was pleasantly surprised. However if you're a golfer that is looking for the tier 1 course like Spyglass or even San Jose local like Cinnabar you might not get too excited, especially if you're a good golfer. But even for a better golfer you still have to have some distance to play well on this course. Try it out, its centrally located with easy access from 101 so you don't have to drive out in the middle of nowhere to play. Nice range with matts and a chipping putting area that's spacious. Pro shop has a lot of good stuff and the restaurant looked busy so I'm guessing the food is reasonable.
