Played Rancho Solano on 5/19. 7:15 Tee time. Course is in the foothills just north of I80 in Fairfield, about 30 minutes (with no traffic) from the East Bay.
The course is public and owned by the city. Was a semi-private club until the dot.com bust. Course is tucked into a gated community with many holes bordering homes.
This course is affectionately know as the "Home of the 4 putt". The greens here were spectacular, very fast, true, and difficult.
The course is not long, or overly technical. It has some risk-reward holes and a few extreme dog legs, mixed with some fun par-3's. The course is very fair, and fun, with the just the right amount of difficulty.
The green complex's are huge, so on in two is easily achievable, but you need to be on the right part of the green if you hope to par.
I really enjoyed my round here and was in and out in 3:45. Was never rushed, or waited long.» Close
