This course is forgiving but teaches and rewards course management for a golfer of my high handicap abilities. Plays long on missed shots. Fantastic value for the green fees. I enjoy playing here.

The course was sloppy.... muddy.....must have poor drainage. Ground squirrels digging up the golf course all over the course. Birds.... both Cooters & Canadian Gueese left a number of greens unplayable with their excrement covering the greens. I’m not anti nature but I’d fire the Superintendent. My first and last time playing there

Excellent process using Golf Now for course selection and executing transaction. value obtained was incredible. However, not sure where the technical issue was in the transaction, but the golf course did not have record of my booking; i showed the GolfNow confirmation and it worked out since not too many golfers out at that time. but in future, could have been very disappointing situation.

Shoreline is very interesting course with challenging holes.

The wind made it more difficult but still enjoyable.

The thing that was very bad was the pace of play. Very Slow!!!

The course is overrun by ground squirrels. They are everywhere, it's like "Ben" the rat movie with squirrels. There are holes on every hole and holes on the inside edges of the sand traps.

I would NOT recommend this course at all.

Ok, the title is real. Yes, it’s the worst course I’ve ever seen or played. 100,000 Gofers live here (honestly) and bird crap everywhere. Even on greens we had to replace our balls off the intended line. It was AWFUL. We lost BALLS aim the FIR in holes and my buddy busted his ankle in the sand trap due to a gofer hole (there is 1,000,000 holes!!!!) don’t play here. The pace was 5.25 hours on a Sunday, the food was terrible too. Nothing good I can say, and I’ve played EVERY course in the Bay Area. I stayed away from here due to horror stories, now I believe them and then some. His. Course. Sucks.

Course is in rough condition. Ground squirrel population is getting out of control. Birds and bird poop on a lot of holes. Would not recommend. Best thing about course is grass driving range!
