What can you say about this course that hasn’t already been said? Just a fun and fantastic course to play. It was in all around great shape. Fairways lush. Not much roll but great. greens receptive, ran medium fast to fast and true. Was in a lot of traps and they were all great. If you are anywhere near here you have to play this course!

They now have a phone app that has a overhead view& yardage. The carts have GPS and seem to be accurate. The app has a nice feature to see the layout for first time players. The golf carts also have USB charging ports.

This is a spectacular golf track. It may seem like a bit of a drive from the bay area at first but you will see its not that far (just about 30 miles north of Highway 80 near Davis) and it is well worth it.
It is one of the most visually beautiful and best maintained courses in all of Northern California. I’ve had the good fortune to play the most iconic venues in the area including Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill, Pasatiempo, and others. And I can say this course stands up to all of those in terms of the layout, the conditions and the enjoyability of playing it. And the staff and hospitality are tremendous.
This course is flat out one of my favorites and all of Northern California and I highly recommend it.

Why Did We Expand the Regions?

It’s simple. has been growing.  We expanded the number of regions because golfers like you have reported about golf course conditions of the golf courses you play.  In short golfers come to us if they want informative, relevant golf course reviews and it’s all due to your, our GK Community’s, diligence.  You let us know your experiences and well if we hear about it everyone else does too.

Why so Many Regions?

Golf is an experience and every experience is unique.  Different golf courses offer different experiences.  What we look for in golf course reviews offers a little insight into every golf course we play.  Not just one point of view but many, and by providing many different points of view you get a clearer picture of what each golf course has to offer.  To that end we felt it necessary to provide regions with their own highlighted golf course.  Local players can enjoy the fact there is a great facility they can play just around their corner.  Golfers looking to experience new golf courses can play these and experience first-hand these unique golf experiences.  Put simply, we allow not just your high-end. daily fee courses to shine but the local municipal as well.  They all deserve a fair shot and they all deserve to shine.
