I've always thought this was a pretty course. Course was in very nice condition. Only 1 group ahead us & they let us play, so play was quick. Staff friendly & had a very friendly & courteous ambassador roaming the course helping if needed. She is certainly an asset to this staff!

Everyone at Boulder Creek did an EXCELLENT job today. Obviously it’s wet and sloppy. But the staff at BC handled it the right way. They were upfront at the clubhouse, had Marshall’s on the course, and overall did a great job of keeping the course in as good of shape as could possibly be expected. I’ve played other nearby courses within the past few days. BC is doing a better job than most in dealing with spring slop conditions. Thank you for all the improvements you have made over the past year or two.

You won't find a nicer course for the price. Very well taken care of. No driving range or practice green. I play this course everytime i'm in the area. Reminds me of Apple mountain golf course in placerville.

Overall, had a great time at Boulder Creek. The Deal Time rate w/ a cart cannot be beat. First time playing here and would come back again. There are only two tee boxes (red and white) and the whites are ~5000 yards total. The course is mostly par 3s with two short (<500 yrd) par 5's the day we played (cut down a bit due to wet conditions). You need to be able to hit accurate / straight shots here to score well as a fair portion of the holes have tree-lined narrow fairways. Greens were in surprisingly good shape and were only a bit slow because it was wet after a few days of consecutive rain. Bunkers looked to be in decent shape. Location is a bit tougher to get to as there are only a few mountain-esque / windy roads to get there, but would highly recommend it for those who are looking for a more get-away golf experience for a very competitive price.

Hadn't played here in 18 years...remembered it much nicer. The cart paths are like a destruction zone and it's hard to find the grass on most fairways. We had fun though and for the money, it was fine.

My wife and I have played here twice since arriving in California on vacation. We have played in Ireland (where we live) in Scotland, England, France and the US and we love everything about Boulder Creek. The course is so different and challenging, the staff are so friendly and helpful. We hope to play here many more times before we head home.

It’s an ok course. The drive there is pretty nice, but other than that, it’s got way too many par 3s.
