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

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

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.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

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.
