Golf Course Review Darkhorse Golf Club Auburn California
Reviewed by: Deepsea14, Granite Bay
Played early 2/23/20 under sunny skies and cool to nice temps (45-68) The course continues to improve and the dry February has only helped.
Can’t say why I couldn’t give the greens a ten rating. Maybe a bit firm for approach shots holding? But, I don’t hit high balls or get a lot of spin. They putted near perfect and few ball marks. Asking after the round I discovered they don’t have a roller only mowing surfaces. As good as a public course gets.
Fairways good full green coverage for 95% a few dormant areas. Tee boxes level very playable.
Rough was a bit variable. Again all good.
Bunkers plenty of pretty white sand that still need to settle a bit will only improve with time.
Course is under new ownership management as of late last year. The modular clubhouse is gone replaced with a sodded over grass area.
Doing business out of the cabana / bathroom building, which is a bit strange but gets the job done. Keurig coffee machine a few canned beverages and water available. I think they may still bring in sandwiches from subway or something. No liquor license yet.
As far as golf course it’s great. Various specials should be used to maximize the value the usual course amenities still work in progress.
