A very enjoyable place to play. New, improved layout makes course seems less congested and the added holes are very well done.

Fairways have rough spots and there are trouble areas on various holes. High use course needs some TLC.

I first discovered the Bidwell course about 2-1/2 years ago. Monday through Friday there is not a better golf value within 100 miles. And it costs just $19 for seniors during the week.

The course is in good shape for the time of the year. However the green's are always slower than any other course in the area. The edges of the fairways need to be improved as they are very bumpy due to an old mole problem.
