This demanding course plays long from the back tees. The large greens vary in undulation and feature an assortment of greenside bunkers. Because the wind is frequently a factor while playing here, the par 3's are particularly difficult. The signature hole is #14, a 229-yard, par 3, requiring a tee shot to a green that is sloped from right to left. This course was redesigned in 1980 by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., and Gary Roger Baird. Tee times for Saturday and Sunday can be made on Tuesday, other days are seven days in advance.

Pretty Good course for beginners, Apr 22, 2004
|reviewer: Ashwin Kashyap

|I play this course at least once every month. It's a decent course for golfers with handicap 20 and up. The fairways are wide and holes are not that long so it is very forgiving and make bad golfers feel good. I don't think it is easy by any means because the wind can play a big role in almost every shot. You really have to choose the right club: you could be hitting a pw or a 5 iron for 150 yards depending on the direction of the wind. I have to say that the fairways are in great condition. it's one of the courses where you get a nice divot (makes you feel good). There aren't too many bunkers. There isn't any real water trouble like in Shoreline. There are some dog leg holes which are pretty interesting. Bottom line: If you don't like the wind, don't play twilight since the wind picks up in the afternoon.|

barren in palo alto, Mar 03, 2004
|reviewer: Bob Sacamanno
from Here in the Valley
|the course is pretty straight-forward and non-descipt. longer than most munis from the tips with ok green maintainence. can get pretty windy since it is wide open to the bay. commuter planes can be a nuisance. just not very exciting.|
