Rude lady with bad attitude at pro shop., Aug 01, 2005
|reviewer: Kenneth Johnson
from San Mateo, CA
|First of all, the golf course isn't bad at all. I actually had a good time the first time I played it. The second time was a disaster. After the ninth hole, I went to use the restroom inside the club house instead of the outside restroom. When I got out, this fiftyish blonde haired lady came out YELLING at me and my friend. She said that we were not allowed to use the restroom inside and that we should use the one outside. She continued to yell at us at how we were holding up play even when we pointed out to her that there wasn't anyone behind us. You will know this lady when you meet her. There is another lady that is very nice there that acts professional and always acts as if she must apologize for her mean co-worker. I assure you, you will know who I am talking about. She is horrible. I have met others who complain about her too. If you can make it past her, I think you'll have a good time at this golf course. Its a piece of cake. Flat and easy.|

Best birdie for the buck., Apr 12, 2004

|This course is relatively inexpensive, in good condition, has a real restaurant, a great pro shop and only minutes away from SF Airport. The greens are true and well maintained, the fairways are broad and the rough is generally forgiveable unless the superintendent had a bad month and wants to take it out on the duffers by junking it up and letting it grow out. While the first hole can be reached in two for the long hitter, most golfers should par or at least bogey this straight par 5 starter. However, any golfer will be pleased with a bogey on hole 2 which is dogleg right with water at the end of your tee shot and all along the left fairway. Big hitters will want to play this hole smart with a three wood or less! Hole number 3 is no slouch either with water just short and left of the green about 180 yards out from the back tees. From there on out the front nine plays quite nicely with another par 5 on number 9 heading into the afternoon NW winds. The back nine starts off easy enough with a long par 4 for the men, par 5 for the women, but then hole 10 has a water canal and a pond between the tee boxes and the green not to mention a greenside bunker and some trees and electrical towers in the right rough just to liven things up a bit. All in all, just when you think you're playing a wide open forgiving course is when your ball finds it's way into the tree line. This isn't a very difficult course, but if the occasional winds kick up in the afternoon your ball may find itself in the tree line begging for a creative punch shot back into the fairway. The course is very walkable, but power carts, pull carts, and push carts are available upon request in the pro shop. The pro shop rents Calloway and Wilson sets not to mention all of the latest drivers, fairway woods and wedges to try out. They even let people take out brand new Calloway 6 irons for free. They have the latest clothes and equipment and even have better prices on some things I've seen in the so-called "discount" golf warehouses. Dollar for dollar, this golf course is as good as it gets on the peninsula.|
