Was able to grab a noon tee time on Jan 2nd, via teeoff.com @ $27 pre-paid fee. Ended up going out at as a single a few minutes early, with the starter letting me go ahead of a 4some, with their permission. 52 degrees at the start, on a lovely sunny day, with minimal wind. One of the best places to play imho on a sunny day, even though it was chilly. Only warmed up a few degrees, but the sun kept me warm enough! POP ended up at 3.5 hours with minimal waiting and playing through 3 other groups. Nice way to start 2019!
Course conditions were very similar to when I played here a few months ago in September.
Tees were pretty good, just a few were a little damp from the rains a few weeks earlier. Fairways were cut short, decent roll, some soft spots, but very lush and green. Rough was about 1.5-2", dense and a little penal - made sure to accelerate through impact.
Greens were firm but held good shots decently. Again, greens were nearly perfect looking, and rolled very true and medium-fast and slippery on the slopes/undulations. Not many ball marks at all to deal with, which was great.
In 2 bunkers, and they were well groomed, soft but damp sand.
Had a smile on my face all day. Just love playing here. Highly recommended.» Close

Played Boxing Day, 12/26, teeing off as a twosome at 10:22, on a cold, sunny day to start - 46 degrees, warming up to upper-50's by early afternoon. Very light amount of play POP was 4 hrs, with no waiting on the two twosomes in front, and we let a single go through.
Course is soaking wet right now from a healthy amount of rain, with a little standing water on a number of holes, and plenty of 'casual water' coming up, but everything is indeed lush and green, fairways and rough last cut maybe 4-5 days earlier. CPO entire course, and very necessary. Greens today were fantastic, cut nicely, rolling medium speed with very few bumps. A few elevated tees were really nice and firm. Well-drained, no standing water.
Nice, friendly gentleman in the pro shop told us to wait to pay at the turn, to see if we really wanted to play a full 18, or just 9 due to course conditions, as the back 9 was a little soggier than the front. When has anyone ever heard that offer? Me - never... very impressed! Was only going to be $3 difference pp, and the sun was out nicely, so we happily waded onwards for a leisurely 18.
Certainly not a day for scoring, as the ball died whenever it hit the ground, and getting it airborne and/or hitting clean shots was a challenge all day. That said, very happy to have played here again. Last played Bennett Valley probably 3 years ago. Holes are pretty straight, but lined with a lot of Redwood trees, so its a very pleasant day out. Glad I wore my water-proof Footjoys, which passed the test - but did get very muddy!
Assuming no further rain (slim chance of that), course would probably be much more playable (drier) in 2 weeks.» Close

Played last week on Monday, 11/26. Teed off at noon and POP was exactly 4 hours, with a bit of waiting on most holes - a 4some 3 groups ahead were about 1 hole behind, and of course, the marshal said nothing. But, we were 'on pace'... Check-in was smooth.
Lovely day, fairways and tees were freshly cut, which always makes things nicer. Greens were lush and really nice. Fully recovered from their punching. Not too bumpy, and rolled mostly smooth at medium-pace.
Pleasantly surprised with the sand quality on the day - was in 4. It was fluffier than usual, and only took 1 swing to get out of each :) Still, saw too many un-raked footprints from prior golfers on the day #@%$!.

Played Monday, 11/5, teeing off a few minutes after noon w/Larryq2001 and was paired with friendly GKer Dubwiser. We finished a bit over 4 hours, with a few short waits on a lovely day. They played the blues and I teed off from the white tees.
White tees were level and in pretty good shape for this time of year. As previously mentioned, a few tee areas are closed and in process of growing new grass. Fairways were overly watered in spots - where I landed my shots, of course - and often got no/little roll-out, which made the course that much more demanding and adding yards to 2nd shots. Was able to draw casual water in my stance 3 times, including once on a strong slope! The course was green enough - it's November - stop with the over-watering!!!
While I was fortunate to avoid any bunkers, was in the rough too many times, and found it diabolical and grabby.
Greens looked fantastic, dark green, held shots fairly well and provided mostly smooth putting. Excepting a few pin placements located directly on slopes, they putted medium-slow, however, and found it a challenge to get long putts anywhere near the holes.
Cart lady came by a few times and saw a friendly marshal twice. Defo recommend playing here, just wish they would let the course dry out a little bit!» Close

Grabbed a deal on teeoff.com, which after applying the their promo discount, netted out at $61.60pp, including very comfy cart w/great GPS. Course is in pretty good condition overall, with just a few minor quibbles.
Played Thursday, very friendly greeting by the starter, and he got us out a few minutes ahead of our noon tee time - played w/Larryq2001 on a lovely, sunny day to start. Made the turn in 2 hrs, and finished right about 4hrs overall POP, despite a mild waits on most holes on the group in front.
Agree with the point dethman made that the tees could use a fresh cut, as the grass was long. Fairways were pretty green, rolled well and generally provided good lies. Found the rough way too many times, and paid the price. Ball would generally sit down in it, and was very grabby, resulting in a number of 'heavy' shots.
Found at least two greenside bunkers (#3, #10 come to mind), and the sand was nice to hit from. Any time I get it out and on the green in 1 shot, the sand is great. Decent white fluff, about 3/4" depth over a medium base.
Most greens are elevated a bit from the fairways, and were lush, very green and soft. Held shots well. Too much watering going on here, however. A few holes were very damp/soft around the hole, and with everyone's golf soles leaving imprint patterns to deal with, a few 4' putts were impossible to keep on line. Mostly putted at medium-speed, but a few downhill putts would easily slip 4' past. Noted that two holes - #9 and #12 had pin placements only 8' from the back fringes. With generally large greens, seemed pretty extreme.
First time back here in 3 years, and very glad to have played. Had played the course a lot in the early 1990's after opening. Course is a good challenge, not a lot of trickeration - you just need to execute the shots. They are offering a monthly membership now - $42/month (including transaction fee) that provides discounted greens fees, and will consider joining in the spring for 2-3 months, with a plan to play 2x/week for that period, then play elsewhere. Was told by staff that they will do their heavy course maintenance in February - nothing planned this fall.» Close
