The par 3 right next to the Ygnacio Valley road and the last hole where the green is totally surrounded by bunkers make this more challenging than it needs to be. Other options are much better for those who and not that good.

The course was just OK. Fairways not in great shape, greens slow and a bit rough. Lots of sand (if you can call it that) to compensate for the very short course. Paid $48 for 2 to walk 9 holes. I would much prefer to pay a bit more to play 18 with cart at Boundary Oaks. On a positive... More

This place serves large portions for a very reasonable price. Great place for lunch. Or after golf. Good beer selection.

This 9-hole, par 34 course has three par 3's,five par 4's and one par 5 that will let you hit a variety of shots both long and short. The holes are interesting and playing the course will not take you all day. It gets hot in the summer, so try to play either early or late in the day. There... More

Love this place, unlike most 9 hole courses, there is a ton of variety here. Par 3,4 and 5 and a mixed terrain. The added bonus is a great sports bar restaurant on site when you are finished with your round.

It is a fun golf course with two different side to play. it is slow as they get 90K rounds a year. It has some good food there, the green are always good but it is a heavy played GC.

If you suck at golf, this is the course for you. Nine holes and mostly short ones. One par 5 and 3 par 3s. Watch out for the really short par 3 next to Ygnacio Valley Rd. - pull it or skull it and you're smashing passing cars. This course can really play slow as the skill level of the... More

Played here with some friends while I was home for the holidays and really enjoyed it. For the moeny, the course has good value and is in pretty good shape. Course is relatively wide open and makes for a pretty fun round, would certainly come back next time I'm in town.

This course is a little jewel near Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Heather Farms. While not rated a touch course, there are several holes that will challenge even a good golfer(which I'm not). The golf folks are very friendly. They let you play as twosomes, and generally the play is quick. Once in awhile you'll get some slow folks but it's... More

Played this course on Labor Day. It was not crowded at all. It's a 9-hole course and includes a par 5. The greens are well maintained. The fairways are only average. You need to make good club selections on several of the holes due to the placement of bunkers. The 9th hole is 310 yards with about 8 bunkers in... More
