Boundary Oak Golf Course
Always a challenge
I really like this course. Lots of doglegs, greens are fast and true; the conditions right now are really good. You are either going uphill to the green, or downhill from the tee box. Good times!

Nice course - spotty condition
First time playing this course. We were a twosome and were able to play in less than 3.5 hours after being allowed to play through the foursome in front. So that was a very excellent pace. The layout of the course was good. We played the blue tees (about 6700) and were glad we did because the conditions were dry/patchy and there was a lot of rollout off the tee. Fairways were spotty - not 'horrible' for this time of year but a lot of brown and thin fairway grass. Greens were in good shape and surprisingly difficult with the days pin placements. My playing partner and I are decent putters and both struggled on the greens. They don't appear as tricky as they are.

One of the best muni courses in the east bay
Grew up playing Boundary Oak GC and every time I go back the course is in better shape. The greens were the fastest I have ever seen them. And they are not flat by any means. Be sure to leave your approach shot below the hole. The front nine has two reachable par 5s, and the back nine has two, three-shot par 5s. Front nine is much more scorable in my opinion. Fairways are tree lined so you'll want to hit it straight off the tee. The rough is not much of problem. The only issue with Boundary is pace of play. We started at 12:30 and didn't finish until 6pm. I would recommend getting an early tee.

still a great place to play
Ever since Boundary Oak was bought out a few years back they have done a great job with the course. Right now (in the Bay Area) it's really hard to find a golf course that isn't dry. But, Boundary has done a fantastic job with their greens. They have maintained them very well. I have played here for years, going back to high school. The course itself hasn't changed much. The driving range is pretty good, it's uphill (which is a little bit of a bummer) and they have a big putting green and chipping green area.
Golf Course Maintenance- 4/5
Value for the Money- 4/5
Pace of Play during the week- 4/5
**Hard one to judge sometimes because they have a few school that play out here. Sometimes it gets crowded in the summer time. During the winter though, if you tee off around 2:30 you'll still have a chance to finish!

What happened to greens
I sometimes like to go out to boundary oaks to get better weather than the bay. One reason I returned was the condition of the greens (smoothness and speed), but last time they were very soft and slow. Will probably come back again to give it another shot.

I teed off at 1107am and walked off the course at 330pm with 2 holes to play. That's 4 hours and 23 minutes for 16 holes on a Tuesday in December. That's ridiculous. Course is great and staff is friendly but I can't afford a 30 minute drive, 20-30 minute warmup and then 445-500 round of golf.

This course was fun and easy to play with open fairways and few obstacles. It was very well maintained. I hope to play there again soon.
