East Bay Golf Club
My wife and I play off 18 & 14 respectively, but she is a bandit. We found the course in good condition considering the rain of late. Great to see the Eagles, feathered variety, are back on the 16th. Will definitely play again whilst we are here and recommend you give it a try.

OK tee to green
The course is OK. They try hard to keep it in the best shape possible. The greens have never been good and are very slow at their best but, play fair.

The weather was breezy but caused no real problems.The greens were a little slow as I think they've been seeded.
The biggest bonus was no one behind us & no one in front ! So no hold ups just a great round of golf !

Course as in good condition. Most holes bring their won challenges. Play moved at a good pace.

A good course to play
I found the course in fair condition but this course was in better condition then some of the others I played.

Good place to play
I was pleased with the course conditions, overall. Green speed was good. We played with a blustery wind with water in play on several holes.

confusing with shaggy greens
Most courses have enough trees or other markers to indicate the fairway off the tee. Not always the case at East Bay. You can easily hit to the wrong fairway or hit to the wrong side of the fairway on a dogleg, of which there are too many, and be completely blocked to the green. Water comes into play but it's not always easy to tell where and how far. The course has to be played several times just to know where to hit the ball. As to conditions, the greens were shaggy and bumpy for the entire round. Because the grass was so grainy and players dragged their feet, it was mess trying to putt. Fairways were shaggy as well as wet = fat shots. Tees were also shaggy. Bermuda is very slippery to begin with; when it's high you can easily lose your footing and hit it in strange places because you lost your balance. There's one hole, #10, that is just plain silly. From the back tees your view is partially obstructed by high reeds and there are also overhanging tree branches staring you in the face. You have a ridiculously small window thru which you're supposed to hit a hook. Sorry to be sounding so negative but this course can be a bear the first time. They have to do something about mowing those greens. Am I going back? Not on a weekend. I like to play a lot faster. But the Golf Now price certainly was right.

Arrived and greeted by very friendly staff. Course layout is very nice, a lot of dogleg left's on this course. Fairway was nice and even the times I was in the rough it wasn't bad. Rough was spongy and you could get the club on the ball without difficulty. Besides shooting a good round, the best part of the day was seeing an American Bald Eagle flying low and straight at us overhead. Their nest is near 16th green and is very cool to see.
Okay for the negative parts and there were only a few. Playing in Fla on a hot summer day I counted only 2 or 3 water coolers on the entire course. Please Please Please put water out there. It was hot and humid, our tee time was 8ish and yes the cart girl came around but you still need to hydrate more than one or two times a round. The only other negative was the greens, it felt like I was putting on shag carpet. All the greens were long and slow. I hit my putts and came up short on almost every single one. At other courses my ball would have flew off the green into the rough, that's how hard I was hitting my putts.
Overall it was a fun time and yes I will be back, enjoyed the round with the slow greens.
