Even though this course is not what it used to be, it still has great views and it's still a challenge. It seems they are working on it because at least there is sand in the bunkers now.

Course is extremely hilly with alot of elevation changes. Not walkable. Greens were being partially aerated and bunkers were overgrown and unkept. Clubhouse is beautiful. It seems they are working very hard to get the course in better condition. However, it will take a few...More

This course is not for the faint of heart golfer and do bring extra golf balls if you decide to play it. If you are a straight and accurate hitter, you might do well here but if you're an average golfer, watch out as this...More

This place has spectacular outdoor view. It has big hall for wedding however; the room has too many windows. The backlight of these windows will create problem for videographer and photographer. They need curtains for all windows to get the best out of this venue....More

Very difficult course to play. Distance and precision are a must. Bunkers hard as regular soil. C'mon people, add sand. Greens 80% 👌, since they were worked on back in September. Friendly staff. Awesome views of San Jose. Will play again on my next visit...More

Ranch club is a great spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of the day. Great outdoor seating with wonderful views of the golf course and valley.

Interesting track...on almost every non par 3 hole you have to think is this the best club to hit right now. The course is tight and good luck finding your ball if you don't keep it in play. Bad news is I lost 5 balls,...More

I love this course, it dares you to go for it and will reward a great shot. However, if you miss, it's going to hurt. Know your distances and play within your game. Pride can kill you on this course. Make sure to watch the...More

What an unexpected adventure. I had never heard of this course but decided to give it a try. There were many available tee times & the rate was pretty low (which is a plus but could mean the opposite). Fortunately this course plays fast &...More

Hadn't played here since the course originally opened and the place looked. A fabulous club house with best bay view in Silicon Valley. The course is still crazy challenging. If you don't hit straight, be prepared to lose balls or bring a bag of "cheappy"...More
