"Misleading when booking"

This is the second time I have booked a tee time here which included a cart only to be told there was no carts available. There were at least 10 carts sitting outside the pro shop ready to go. I then asked for a push cart and they said they had none of those either. We ended up having to leave, losing the booking fee from GolfNow and didn't play a round of golf. I get it, it was memorial weekend, you were busy, but don't let me book a round online thats includes a cart if you don't have any. We will never go back to this course ever again. Drove to Lake Chabot and played their par 3 course instead. The staff there were really friendly and helpful.

pace of play was very good. the staff was accommodating because I had mistakenly booked the Marina 9hole course and the pro shop was able to give my 2-some a good T time on the Tony Lema 18hole course. the restaurant amenity included in the green fee was good too. Tony Lema course is more of a links design than a traditional course design. Some of the pin placements were real challenging; T boxes, fairways and greens are in good condition. bunker sand seemed thin in the 2 traps I played out of.

Aside for the low price I paid, everything is like playing in a well maintained private golf course, along the bay.

The monarch course is great for a quick 9 and it was in very good condition. It was also challenging, but fair.
All the staff at the facility were very friendly and helpful.
We definitely hope to play there again when we visit the San Leandro area.

We had a great time playing the Marina Course this weekend. It's a flat and easy course, the perfect kind for playing to have a good time. It took about 90 minutes to play, we didn't have any waiting time before us and nobody was immediately after. All in all, it was a great value. I liked how there were a few longer holes mixed in with the short ones. I didn't lose too many balls either.
