Played here on the first weekend in June. Course ran a $58 special for AM tee times, which was excellent comparatively to other top Sacramento courses. Check in was excellent, pro shop had lots of golf gear and clothing. Note- If looking for a great meal, they are selling a Father's Day special, including two green fees good anytime plus two buckets of range balls for $79. I'd recommend picking this up if its in your regular rotation.

Course was busy, but well martialled. We finished in 4 hours 5 minutes with our 9AM tee time. Greens were in good shape but a little slower than we'd like. Fairways were firm and fast, looks like they were aerated a few weeks back. Tee boxes and sand traps were excellent.

Beverage cart was around often and the attendant was very friendly. All in all, my group quite enjoyed the day. We will definitely be returning, especially since the course looks like it is rounding in to Summer form.

Played here on Memorial Day with GK user postmanami. Facility was packed as it was a holiday, and as well they had a clinic going on for their residents (it is inside a Del Web Community). Arrival was easy once we found a parking spot. Pro shop is well stocked and staff is friendly.

Course has a smaller grass driving range. Because of the resident clinic going on, we could not find a spot to take swings and warmup. This was disappointing. This was poor planning by a daily fee course. We went to the putting green instead, which is quite large and mimics the conditions we later found on the course itself.

The course itself is a nice experience. The front nine looks like a modern parkland setting, with some water hazards and traditional setup. The back nine is quite different, which winds through majestic oaks and requires precise shots. We found the conditions excellent. Nice tee boxes and fairways, plenty of sand in the bunkers, which is a rarity in the Sacramento area.

Although it was VERY busy being Memorial Day, the course was well martialled and we finished in 4 hours and 15 minutes. We found the beverage cart girl to super friendly and attentive, although because of how busy they were we only saw her twice all day. They might want to invest in a second service cart.

Overall, it was quite enjoyable and I will keep this in my rotation of courses.

Played here on a Saturday in late April with my regular club.

Arrival/Check in: Customer service is always top notch, when available, cart staff meets you at your car to help load up. Pro shop super friendly and helpful. Check is was a breeze.

Practice facility: One of the nicer public practice facilities in the Sacramento area. Grass driving ranch, large putting green that is indicative of the playing course, and a chipping/bunker practice green to boot. Top notch.

Course conditions: Mostly positive. Fairways in nice, late Spring shape. Rough was decent, although there is a few native grass areas I could do without. Tee boxes where ok, but a few could use some TLC such as seed mix, etc. Plenty of sand in bunkers, which is a nice surprise for the Sacramento area. Greens were top notch, rolled smooth and fast. The only negative was that there were some heavy mosquito areas due to the close proximity to the Sacramento area. Bring your bug spray until the course dries out a bit more.

Layout: A fun interesting layout wedged between the Sacramento Airport and Sacramento River. Lots of trees, blackberry bushes bordering fairways, and native plants. I enjoy that each hole is separated for the most part by native bushes, grasses, and trees, creating a nice isolated feel on each hole.

Amenities: Course was marshaled and they did their job well. Beverage cart was available starting at 10AM. Food and drink at the on-course restaurant was excellent. Quite underrated actually.

My group will be back and so will I when I can fit it on my schedule.

Castle Oaks is one of my regular local tracks. I haven't played this one in a bit, so I thought I'd review it with my current experience.

Arrival was a breeze. Pro shop is well-stocked and staff is always friendly. My playing partner headed to the range (which is natural grass in average shape for the area) while I hit the putting green (as I do when time is limited before our tee time. Practice green was in excellent shape and matched the speed on the course.

Course Conditions:

Actually I was a bit disappointed for late April conditions. We've had a wet winter so the course greened up nicely, but the course was not in the shape that I thought it should be for late Spring.

Tee boxes were chewed up quite a bit, it was a challenge to find a level spot with good grass. Too many bare spots.

Fairways were in decent shape, a few bare spots here and there, no real muddy areas from the wet winter.

The rough was an udder disaster. Evidently they'd recently cut the rough down a bit (still very high) and there were piles of grass clippings everywhere. I literally lost multiple golf balls in which I saw the exact landing spot and arrived to find piles of grass clippings making finding the ball like an old-fashioned treasure hunt.

The bunkers had very little sand, some like hitting off pavement and others digging just a tad.

The greens were the saving grace of the day, in great shape, quick, and rolled true.

Amenities:

No beverage cart (it was during the week) and water available only on one hole on each side that I saw, which was disappointing on a warm day.

Overall, I'll still play here, but I'll probably wait a bit to see if they take care of the issues I shared.

Played this course for the first time at the end of December, 2018 as part of a group trip with 8 players.

Course itself is located in a nice development in the hills of Cave Creek. Nice practice green and decent clubhouse. Disappointed that the course charged $5 for range balls after paying $90 for a weekday green fee.

The course itself has many beautiful views of the surrounding area along with many significant elevation changes. Fairways were in good shape (although really wet) and the greens were slick and rolled true. Tee boxes were a bit chewed up for my liking.

Probably won't return here only because it does not fit my game at all. Almost every hole is tight target golf. Premium is on hitting the ball straight on every single hole.

Played on a Friday afternoon in early December. Check in was easy, well stocked pro shop. Course has large driving range with mats, didn't use it on this day. Starter at first tee pacing group appropriately.

Course itself was in pretty good shape for early December. Greens are some of the best in the Sacramento area. Rolled true, not fast, not slow. Tee boxes definitely need some work, with plenty of bare spots. Fairways decent for December. Inconsistent amount of sand in the bunkers, but you can tell that the course staff is working on this, as it has improved from the past. My largest complaint was that their was too much watering given that we've had a rainy month. Fairways were soaked in spots even though it hadn't rained in over a week.

Overall this is a fun course to work on your game at. Not too difficult; you can hit all of your clubs, including driver. Decent option in the Sacramento area.

Played this with my monthly golf group, as Rancho Murieta is now allowing public play after 11AM to get some extra cashflow into the club.

Check in was fairly easy, although I did feel some country club attitude from the staff. This was disappointing. The course had no issue taking our groups money, but weren't exactly welcoming to our group. Pro shop was decently stocked.

Once we found the first tee, which was an adventure as there is no signage informing us where to go, the experience was good. Fairways were in good shape, with a few brown spots from the dry summer, but no bare spots anywhere. Tee blocks were good, although a few could use some refurbishing. Greens were outstanding, rolled fast and true. Course itself is an older parkland style golf course.

Our pace of play was excellent, as we did not see another group until we reached the 17th hole. This is a plus about playing a mostly private course. We had the facility to ourselves for the most part.

Its on my list to return, though not at the top by any means.

Played here in September with my regular group of golfing buddies. Was pleasantly surprised at how green everything was in late Summer. Most of the other area courses are struggling to keep turf growing, but this course has that part figured out.

Pro shop and bar/restaurant area are adequate, which is puzzling as to why they aren't a little better as the building that houses them are huge and beautiful.

Fairways and tee boxes were in really good shape and there was an adequate amount of sand in the bunkers, a plus for the central valley. My only condition complaint, as others have mentioned, is that the greens are way too slow. They are lush and soft, but you really have to pound your putts to get them to the hole. It was a bit frustrating.

All in all, its a decent value track in the Central Valley.

Played this course in late September as part of my monthly golf group. Had never played the course and had heard mixed reviews, so we thought we would give it a shot.

Clubhouse and bar area are large, open, and well stocked. The facility looks more like a community center than a golf course and bar/restaurant, but it definitely serves its purpose and I felt welcome by all that I encountered there.

Course conditions were a mixed bag. The greens were excellent. Fast, rolled true, as good as almost any in the Sacramento area. Fairways and tee boxes, not so much. There were many unexplained bare spots in random places on the fairways. Not sure the reason, other than a possible irrigation issue as some areas were incredibly dry and super saturated. Bunkers contained little to no sand for the most part, but some had more than others.

The layout itself is fun and challenging, although there are a few blind doglegs and carries that you would need to play the course a few times to master.

There was no on course beverage cart, which was disappointing for a Saturday. The on course marshall was helpful and kept things moving. One of the best I've seen.

Not sure if I'll return until they fix the condition related issues, but this course does have some potential.

Took the hour drive North from Tampa to Brooksville to give this highly rated Tom Fazio course a try. Green fee was only $40, as it was late Summer and a bit of a drive from Tampa. This is quite the bargain as the course was in great shape and fun layout. Tons of bunkers, all playing as waste bunkers. Nice rolling terrain. Enjoyable course with nice customer service in pro shop and beverage cart. Would play here again in a minute.

Took a quick buddies trip for Tampa and wanted to get a round in where the pros play. Got a great deal, as it was $140 for one night at the resort with a round on the famed Copperhead Course.

The is course was in immaculate shape, a little soggy at the beginning of our round as we are in the rainy season still in Tampa. Fairways, tee boxes, bunkers, and greens all in immaculate shape. The greens rolled fast and true, especially after doing out a bit during the round. It was nice to hit in the white sand bunkers as well.

Course is a stiff challenge, 137 slope from the 6200 white tees. Good customer service from pro shop, beverage cart, and bar/restaurant staff. Only complaint was the on-course assistants were a bit on the rude side to keep pace of play moving, but totally understandable given they want to keep a busy course moving.

Overall, 100% worth the green fee.

A unique track in the Sacramento/Roseville area as it a blend of open holes and target golf.

Customer Service is outstanding; nice touch that they run a cart out to your car upon arrival. Pro shop is well stocked; friendly staff. Nice grass driving range. My only complaint in this area is the tee times at 8 min apart does slow down play on a Saturday.

On course staff was friendly, beer cart up and running. Course conditions- Fairways were in great shape. A few tee boxes chewed up a little but still in good shape overall. Bunkers had decent amount of sand, which is rare in the Sacramento area.

This course requires a lot of thinking and planning. Multiple clubs can be played off the tee.
Had a nice time despite pace of play being a little on the slow side.
