Old style course with narrow fairways and small greens. Short yardage makes it look easy on paper but very few come in under par. Recently upgraded all of the facilities with a total redo of the clubhouse, greens, tee boxes and greens. Very well maintained. The course is a hidden gem in the heart of Los Gatos. Very friendly atmosphere. A little hard to find but well worth it if you can get an invite. It has one of the best practice facilities in the area. It would be a good place to take some lessons ( open to non-members).

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level, Best course in the area, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

One of the better country clubs in the bay area. Beautiful clubhouse with great views of the Silicon Valley. Good golf course, but not terribly difficult, especially for long hitters.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again
