Have been playing golf for several years and have always loved this crazy game. The frustration of hitting a bad shot or missing a short putt can get to you but no better feeling than seeing your drive striped down the middle or that iron shot that ends up next to the pin. I plan to play more as my perspective on life has changed a bit. Being a recent pancreatic cancer survivor made me realize that the good things in life are still out there. Don't want to miss em!

I get the opportunity to play Boulder Creek every year in mid-October and really look forward to it. Tournament weekend and played all three nines on 10/13-10/15. I really love playing here for a lot of reasons. First if not windy, the weather is beautiful this time of year. Second, it is a fun layout. A good mixture of long and short holes with split fairways and bunkers strategically placed. And third, the course is in great condition right now.
The staff in the clubhouse and in the restaurant/bar are great. On our Friday practice round, they gave us the resident, twilight rate. So nice of them to do that. The food in the restaurant is very good and the service is exceptional.
The course was recently re-opened after all of the over seeding. Fairways are super. Not a bad lie out there. The Bermuda rough is starting to brown out providing a nice color contrast with the lush, green fairways. Even though going dormant, some of the rough was thick and you could lose a ball in there. We spent a little time looking for balls in the rough. Bunkers were in good condition. Good, firm sand.
Greens were recovering nicely from the over seeding as well. About medium fast this weekend and rolled true.
Sadly, pace of play was tournament speed, about 5 hours. Our tournament is never real fast for some reason.
I cannot say enough good things about this place. If in the area, you should make it point to play.» Close

Played with Guru’s leef2020, gary00 and zgolfinman (Lee, Gary and Bob) on 10/10 and had a great time. Crossings is a very nice golf course, all around. I have played here 3 times this year and have always been impressed with the service. When you arrive, you just drop your clubs with the valet out front and they take of the rest. Very nice driving range and practice area and when it’s time to go to the tee box, you are always on time. Impressive.
No complaints today about the course. All is in order. Was told our round was over 4 ½ hours. Didn’t feel that long but I guess I was having too much fun to notice.
This is not an easy course to play but it is fun. Some of the fairways are generous but you need to keep it in play. Very hilly course that winds through the hills and you can’t be spraying the ball or you will end up in the native areas.
Fairways were in great shape. Lots of roll out. Wasn’t in any bunkers but was told they were hard underneath. As mentioned by the previous reviewers, they are working on the tee boxes and were scalped down pretty thin.
Greens were in great shape. Not fast but tough to read. Most of the greens are pretty large and some have undulations which make it very difficult.
After our round, Lee, Bob and I stayed and ate in their very nice restaurant. Very good food and cannot go wrong with the $8.00 burger! Had a nice conversation after. Lee knows more about club making than anyone I have ever met and Bob is a Six Sigma Lean expert. I was dwarfed in the mix as my contribution to the conversation was to order another gin and tonic!! :-) Seriously, If you ever get a chance to play with Lee, Gary or Bob do so! Great guys to play with.
Get out and play The Crossings.» Close

Played Via Verde on Monday 10/9 as part of a scramble tournament. Have played in this tournament for several years and always look forward to it as I rarely get the opportunity to play here. I enjoy the fun layout but being a private club, it has become a little rough around the edges. Has a muni look to it! There were iron bars inside the windows and door of the club house which I haven’t seen before. Sign of the times I guess. I remember when I first started to play here and it was so nice.
Kikuyu grass is starting to take over some of the fairways but are still in good shape. The rough was ragged. The thick, kikuyu rough was not cut and seemed to be growing wildly. Some of these areas were wet and carts had run through them making a mud mess. Bunkers were in very good condition which was nice to see. Good, firm sand.
The greens however were in great shape and are a bit tricky to read. They rolled very nicely, were fast and held good shots. Actually, I had my ball back up after hitting the green. Kind of neat to see.
I will always enjoy playing here and if ever invited back, I am there. You get some clear views of the San Gabriel mountains. I know a couple members here and never heard them complain about the course but I am thinking this will likely open to the public sometime in the future.» Close

It has been a long time since I have played Coyote; probably close to 25 years. Not sure why but I guess the price tag never attracted me. Was invited out to a tournament on this Saturday 9/30 which was nice but I had no recollection of the layout. Fortunately, one player in my group plays here regularly and that helped. It was a slow day. Took just short of 5 hours to play and waited on most shots but I attribute that to some difficult holes. People spend time looking for balls. My friend whom I played with tells me his group is usually 2nd or 3rd off in the morning and always finish in 4 hours or less.
The course is in good condition. Bermuda fairways are in pretty good shape. As Weber mentioned, there are thin areas and but the fairways were cut down just right and for the most part, had good cushion underneath. Bunkers were in great shape with good firm sand. Tee boxes were chewed up a bit and were hard but many were uneven. Tough to find a good spot to place your tee. The Bermuda rough wasn’t too thick and playable.
Greens were in great shape. About medium fast and not a lot of ball marks which is always nice to see. They were pretty straight forward with very few undulations.
The course plays relatively short and there are a few holes that do not require hitting a driver. We played it from the blues which is around 5,600 yards but just because it’s a bit short doesn’t make it easy. Target golf on some holes so if do hit driver, you can’t spray it. The views are outstanding if you get a clear day.
As I mentioned, the $95 price tag kept me away but my friend tells me they have a senior rate during the week of $55 which includes lunch. That’s a much better deal. Recommend.» Close

On the way back to the SAC airport, we stopped to play Teal Bend on 9/24. The course sits right next to the airport and along the Sacramento River. I have played TB a couple of times and always thought it was so so. Different story today and was pleasantly surprised to see the difference. Had a 12:10 tee time, payed $49 and finished in just under 4 hours. Thought it was going to be slower being a Sunday but had a very enjoyable time.
The layout is great. A good mixture of long and short par 4’s with some dog legs and small lakes. The setting is very nice. Large trees line the fairways but the trees also provide a very nice and scenic background for the greens.
The course is in great shape. Fairways are Bermuda and most were lush. Some fairways had drying areas but not many. Excellent roll out. The rough was also in great shape and very playable. Bunkers had good, firm sand.
The greens were a bit chewed with many unrepaired ball marks. In addition to my own, I repaired at least 2 ball marks on just about every green. I take it that repair of ball marks on the greens is an issue here and is being addressed. On this day at #10 green, there was a box filled with plastic divot tools and a sign that says “please take one and use it to repair your ball mark”. Interesting but they make a good point. The greens will only be as good as those who play it. Like the idea. Regardless, they still rolled nicely and were medium fast. Most were pretty large with large undulations. Really challenging
Had a great time out there and if I lived in the area, I would make this course as part of the rotation. A must to play if in the area.» Close
