Detailed description of Delta View Golf Course, CLOSED 2018

Delta View Golf Course is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Pittsburg, California.

Pittsburg's Delta View Golf Course first opened for play in 1930 as a 9 hole course. The course was designed by Alister Mackenzie. Today this original 9 holes is the back nine. In 1991, the course added a front nine making the entire layout a par-71 course. The front nine was designed by Robert Muir Graves. Play this course and you can experience the work of two different golf designers.

The 18 hole championship course tucked in the foothills of Pittsburg. The 6,317-yard course consists of rolling hills, mature eucalyptus trees lining the fairways, and spectacular Delta views with Mt. Diablo in the background. The design climaxes with difficult closing holes, including #16, a 398-yard, par 4, requiring an exact, downhill tee shot to a very narrow fairway between trees. The greens were very small on the original holes, but have been enlarged for practical reasons. The course is very hilly and can be a nightmare for slicers because all of the trouble is on the right.

The Delta View Golf Course facility also has a grass driving range on site.

Blue tees; 6,317 yards, course rating 71.3, slope rating 133.

White tees: 5,758 yards, course rating 68.3, slope rating 125.

Red tees: 5258 yards.

The course closed on March 1, 2018

According to the East Bay Times, the reasoning behind the closure of the Alister MacKenzie-designed golf course in Pittsburg, Calif., is unclear, though some members speculated that potential for drought played a role. The city owns the 6,317-yard golf course and is exploring its options.

Great value especially in the afternoon on week days in fall and winter when there is no wind and no one is around. One problem is on weekend aftrenoons there are no marshals to speak of and so pace of play is compromised. Otherwise the staff is thoughtful and kind. They also jave a great deal if you play regularly for only $49.00 cutting the cost by ten dollars if you take a cart and five dollars if you walk.

This is a tough course to walk and I guess that's why seniors walk for $16. I play this course for conditioning as do my friends.I can't remember the last time I saw anyone else walk the course, it's a real push or pull depending on your cart.Every hole has a new challenge and the condition of the course is good. The sand traps have all been redone and a pot bunker with steps can be found on the first hole. I believe they have free waste water for 20 years and the course as a result is green,green,green even in August! If you want a challenge on a hot day(temp today is in the high 90's) this is it. Best play is in the fall and spring and before the winds come up in the early afternoon.

This Course is now under new management and the coditions are improving greatly. The greens are very smooth and challenging for a public course. The weekend afternoons get very backed up at cheap rates. Spend a little more and play in the morning. This is a great layout for the money.
