Brutal heat but the course was in great shape. Fast greens and groomed tight fairways create a day of feast or famine.

Keep the ball straight and you'll stay out of trouble.

The squirrels that roam the course have seen it all and are not afraid to roll the eyes as you miss a five foot put because you read the imaginary break and boogied another hole.

This course is fantastic for your short game. Only a par 60 with short and long par 3’s throughout the course. I used mostly irons and a hybrid twice. Staff is really friendly.

Fun course! Great spot to practice your short game. Greens are in excellent shape and play very honest. Leave the driver at home though. Maybe even leave the three wood. Course plays a lot shorter than stated distance markers. But overall awesome experience once I made an adjustment for distances. The clubhouse was great too. excellent pastrami sandwich pre first tee. Overall a great afternoon. Nice course, friendly staff, and much needed work on my short game.

I enjoy this course as it is well maintained and has decent drainage for the wetter days. The course is very scenic, with an abundance of trees and a creek that weaves through the course, making it more challenging and requiring a little more accuracy, despite the fact that it is a shorter course. It is often crowded here and there are many events on the weekends that cause additional backup. The staff are friendly and the food at the grill is good.

I played here a few dozen times from my beginner stage (+30-40s on par 60-68) to now (+10-20 on par 72). I enjoy the beautiful setting, often run into deers. The distances are short, and the fairways are narrow, which can be frustrating for high handicap players, especially those shoot far (200+ with driver) but loose in direction control. The rough zones are thicker and deeper than all other places I've been, so once getting there I really have to lower the expectation in distance and direction control. The greens are recently aerated, very tough for putting.

The place tends to be slow, with many beginners and okay players. Once you accept the fact and pace with the flow, it's tolerable for what I have to pay.

Deep Cliff is hidden in the foothills of Cupertino, Course is perfect for a relatively quick weekday round when 9 holes on a short course does not whet the golf appetite, and you don't want to spend 4+ hours playing 18 on a long course.

Got a Tues early afternoon time through "HOT DEAL" from GolfNow. Great price 1/5th of usual rate! (But they did just aerate the greens) We tee'd off around 1pm and finished 18 by 3:30 with a group in front of us. This course only has a few Par 4s. You can pretty much just play irons. but there are enough hazards to make things interesting. Good beer selection on tap.

I would advise against coming on a weekend if you can't get an early start time. Since most of the holes are par 3s, sometimes you get several groups waiting at the tee, and a round could take 5-6 hours.

The weather scared everyone off, so we had the course to ourselves! Considering all the rain we have had, the course was in fairly good shape except for a few muddy spots. A good little course to practice ones chipping and putting.

Deep Cliff is a fun course thats a great test to your short game. Its only a par 60 but plays a full 18 with some challenging little holes. Its mainly a walking course but they do have carts if you want them. The clubhouse is very nice and the staff overall is very friendly. Good hot deal if you find one.

Overall a “nice course”, but it wasn’t abundantly clear when booking through golf now Juuuuust how short of a course this was. Majority of the holes are par 3’s and barely 100 yards in length. Waaaay too small for a course charging $50 (almost $70 if you want to rent a cart). I won’t be going back ever.

When I checked in at the course with Golfnow’s confirmation number, they told me that no booking record was shown. The staff at Deepcliff wanted me to contact Golfnow to clear it up, as it was not their problem. I managed to make a call to Golfnow customer support , only to find out Golfnow’s office was closed. After running back and forth for half an hour, I was allowed to play at their mercy. This was a very unpleasant experience. It seems that I, the customer, is the only victim for the miscommunication between Golfnow and Deepcliff.

This 18 hole course is short (a little over 3,000 yards), but challenging with a few narrow fairways. Greens and sand bunkers were in excellent shape. At the turn, my group (only two of us) went to use the restroom before heading to the 10th tee. As we got to the 10th tee, a foursome who was only playing the back nine was getting ready to tee off. They might not have realized that there were only two of us in my group, so they teed off without asking us to go first.

After they teed off and were walking to their balls, the marshal alertly noticed the situation. Without any prompting from us, he drove his cart towards the 10th hole to chat with the group in front of us. He then came back to let us know that he’s spoken with the group in front and that it was ok for us to play through anytime we caught up with the group. Kudos to the marshal for doing that and giving everyone a clear message. This is evidence that this is a well run operation. We will be back!

I enjoy this course very much. Great greens and putting. However expect longer play time due to the tight tee time booking. The bookings are 4 minutes apart. More then half the golfers barely can get ahead with such tight bookings. Plan ahead.

Hadnt played this course in 10 years. The ckub house had good beer selection and an outdoor pool table and shuffle board table. Was great to hang out after and decent food for the price. Staff was friendly and even remembered the names of the people in the group after play.

Course is an executive course so it is short, but good if you dont want to spend the whole day on a sunday. Would highly recommend and will be going back again.
