Played the morning of 9/1. Pace of Play (PoP) was pretty poor at 4:45 (more about that below). The course is in really good shape overall. Very lush & green as opposed to the bone-dry surrounding hills & makes for a great contrast. I played it last weekend at the same time in the morning & the fairways were soggy & squishy, like it was winter. This time around, they were much firmer & provided good roll-out. Hopefully they keep it more on the firm side through fall.

The Greens – 6.5/10. Medium/Fast & soft. Some of the greens are pretty chewed up & most had more ball marks than usual. Definitely due for an aeration. Certainly not the usual quality.

The Fairways – 8.5/10. Very lush with no thin or brown spots. Great roll-out & perfect lies. Me Likey!

Sand Traps – 7.5/10. Nice, firm sand in the bunkers. Well maintained.

Tee Boxes – 7/10. A couple of the par three tees were chewed up, but overall good.

Super nice Starter, who did a great job of explaining the local rules & also told us they are striving to bring the Pace of Play down to 4:16. I’m glad they are acknowledging the slow-play issue, as I’ve experienced nearly 5 hour rounds 2 weeks in a row, while teeing off before 8am! Hopefully they can get a handle on this issue.

Overall, this course is one of the best deals in Northern California in terms of Cost/Conditions. It’s a fantastic layout, in above average shape, at a very affordable green fee. If they can give the greens a little TLC & speed up the PoP, Rancho Solano would get a solid 9, in my book. Worth the Green Fee Awards 2019 Worth the Green Fee Awards 2019
