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 the good things in life are still out there. Don't want to miss em!

Well, my final golf opportunity while in the Bay Area and what better way to finish off the week than with my son in law and my 2 bothers in law at Buchanan Fields a.k.a Duffer’s Paradise– lol. Even my son in law asked why are we playing here?? My family does not play a lot of golf and this was a good place for their level of play. A warm Saturday late morning, it turned out to be a fun day. $13 to walk. Another $10 if you choose to ride the very old gas cart that backfires occasionally.
An old, 9 hole, tree lined par 31 (4 short par 4’s) which gets a lot of play and in good condition. The young man in the club house got us off on time. We did rent one cart and the young man went out of his way to get us one. They only have 4 or 5 carts and they were being used but he found one somehow. Fairways on the par 4’s are decent enough. Tee boxes are a bit beat up. Bunkers are hard. Awful actually. Very hard and damp, like hard pan.
Greens were very nice though. Smooth, holding shots and rolling true.
Not much change from when I played here last time which was just about a year ago. Not exactly on my “oh boy, let’s play this one soon” list but for folks who are all over the place or just starting to play, it’s a good one.» Close

Onward on my trip in No. Calif and played Blue Rock Springs East on Friday 8/3 with an old college friend. Got there about an hourly early and noticed the place was packed. A lot of golfers out there which was actually nice to see. Had a 9:02 am tee time and payed $31 through golf now. Went to range to warm and drove back to the first tee early and saw the tee box was open. It was about 20 minutes before our time but we decided to tee off anyway. As we walked off the tee, we heard the starter call out our name to be 3rd up. Ooops! We went ahead anyway and played in about 3.5 hours. Would have been much faster but we were behind a slower 3 some but wasn’t in a hurry and enjoyed the time with my good friend.
Now to the course. Not a very long course but it is hilly and in decent condition. I enjoyed the layout and was fun to play. Fairways were decent. Some tight lies but not bad. There really wasn’t much rough to speak of. Mostly dry or hard pan. Tee boxes were ragged and some not level. Bunkers were in good condition but what I liked about them is the rakes were very light weight. I know that sounds stupid but most courses have rakes that are big and heavy. Not here!
The greens were really nice. Looked like they were verticut recently but didn’t affect the roll. A little fast with some undulations and you really don’t want to be above the hole putting downhill.
Had fun out there. My friend said he had heard rumors of one of these courses closing down. Doesn’t look like that’s true judging by the good Friday crowd. Looking forward to coming back. Recommend!» Close

Up in the Bay Area visiting the in-laws and going to try to get in a few rounds. I always start with Boundary Oaks as it is only 10 minutes away from where we are staying. Got there early today 8/2 and a twosome was already on the tee hitting. So, the starter sent me right the tee to follow. Real nice guy in the clubhouse. Wish I had got his name. $27 to walk and didn’t bring a pull cart so decided to carry. Made it around with no problem and in 3 hours. Never caught the 2 some in front of me.
A beautiful, cool morning and was very impressed with the conditions. Mostly kikuyu fairways but they were cut down. In fact I seemed to be following the maintenance guys cutting the grass. Had to wait on many holes as they made their way through the fairways. The rough was not thick and very playable. The bunkers were in excellent shape. Soft, fluffy sand which was nice to hit out of but could easily get a fried egg because they were so soft.
Great greens!! All of them. Soft, holding shots and they rolled perfectly. As fast as I have ever seen them.
This course is in excellent condition right now. As nice as I have ever seen it. If you’re ever up here, got to give it a go. Note that they do charge weekend rates on Fridays so Mon-Thurs are the best days.» Close

Played MM late morning on 7/31 with a good friend and was out as a twosome as there was no one to be paired up with. It has been a couple of years since I last played here and was looking forward to it. A warm day and it moved a bit slow - 4.5 hours. The wait on the par 3’s was brutal , 3 groups backed up on each of the them. Ugh!
The course is in great condition however and not many browned out areas. A lot green out there so they must water regularly but the fairways are heavily “kikuyufied” (a new word) and even though cut down, not much roll out at all. Very soft fairways. I hit some good drives only to be disappointed when I arrived at the ball to see I didn’t get much distance. Good lies however. I can truly attest to the bunkers as I was in six of them! They were in good condition. A little damp/hard underneath but not hard to get out of. The rough was thick in some areas and you didn't want to be in there. No bueno!
The greens were in great condition , but they have always been good here. They rolled great. And not too many ball marks which is always nice to see.
Overall, I was impressed with this muni. Except for the wait on the par 3/s it was a great day. They have also done a nice upgrade in the restaurant. It’s now a restaurant with a full bar, numerous tv’s so I can see this making a big hit during football season. I would like to add MM to our rotation. Recommend!» Close

Finally getting around to doing this review for BG. Was invited out to play with leef2020 on a very warm afternoon and not very crowded. $39 beat the heat special. That’s the best price I have ever seen here and thanks Lee for setting this one up. Also, thanks for your kind words.
A very relaxing pace, about 4 hours following a couple of twosomes but the heat got to us. We were pretty beat up when we finished. The course is in very nice condition. Very green which is impressive considering the heat. Wish other courses could do as well. Fairways were cut down but were soft so limited roll out. Bunkers were in good shape as well. Firm and not real damp underneath.
Greens were soft, holding shots and rolling true. They were pretty damp. Guess with all of the heat, heavy watering appears to be the answer to keep from losing them.
The course is a lot of fun to play but the back 9 is pretty challenging. I have never seen it in bad shape. The price tag is a bit high but there are specials and if you find one, take it! Recommend!» Close
