Course was in excellent condition with the fairways and greens in good condition. The course is overpriced for seniors at $65 compared to other courses in the area. Will play again when coupons and prices at certain times of the year are lower. Good ambience and challenging but scoreable.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better courses for less nearby

I've played this course a number of times and it always has good greens (med fast to fast) good fairways and I never had to wait on slow play. I've gotten in 4 hour rounds on the weekend and faster on the weekday.

This is one the best private/public courses in Unites States. Far superior to Ridgemark and a great test of shot making from any of the 5 sets of tees. Greens are in superior shape.

Choose your tees carefully. Distance is very deceptive on this course. Try to play in the morning. Everything was coming up roses unitl about 2 pm--then the wind began to howl--the usual afternoon onshore gale. Course went from difficult to nigh impossible. Very good layout of course and facilities.

Spectacular setting, some truly great holes (especially on back 9.) Course was in great shape tee-to-green. Play the right set of tees or be prepared to take a beating. Twilight rates are an absolute bargain. Best public course and best bang for the buck in Santa Clara/San Benito counties.

Best layout/design in the South Bay area, not including Monterey. Very difficult but very fair; a shotmaker's paradise. Always in excellent condition, except..... Cons: Like so many courses, the fairways have been over watered the past several years.

Our club had another tournament here today, drove 50 miles for it, but well worth it. Great course, but you better bring you putting game. I got lulled by the local muni greens then this one ate me up on the greens. But it was still a great challenge.
