Played 5-7-19 early morning as a single walking the the course in 2 1/2 hours for $36. Tee boxes were in good shape, mostly level with good coverage. Fairways were in nice shape, they had good roll out with semi- tight lies with good cushioning underneath. Rough here is about the same height as the fairways and in good shape, get outside the primary and you are in knee high lost ball territory. Bunkers are probably the weakest part of the course, semi-firm and a little thin and a little rugged along the faces and edges. Greens were in very nice shape at medium pace and holding shots nicely, they are mostly smooth with an occasional bump that is mostly from un-repaired or poorly repaired pitch marks. This is a course that can feel visually intimidating were everything feels big probably because it is, stretching out at 7482 from the tips with wide fairways and big greens and a lot of big deep bunkers but there are plenty of other tee options down to 5432 which can make the course a little more manageable.

Went out this weekend on a GolfNow Hot Deal. Course was starting to get its green. It's still not 100% green, with a few yellow areas, but for the most part, this course is getting to its summer green. The greens were rolling nicely, with a few pins in places that were fairly tough if you came in from the wrong spots.
Tee boxes were in really good shape, especially with the tournament that was in front of us.
One cause for concern, is the bunkering, and I get it with the recent heavy rains we had. But there is a lot of bunkers that have a very thin layer, and had no consistency. Also a lot of rocks in the bunkers as well.
Overall, still one of my top favorite courses in Fresno area. The food is really good too! Can't wait for the GK Plays event in June!
Just wanted to post some specials on behalf of a big supporter of Greenskeeper.org - Ridge Creek Dinuba Golf Club.
We had an outing up there in March, the course is awesome - read the reviews.

Just got off the phone with the one of the Golf Pros there at Dinuba. There is a Yardage Book for sale in the Pro Shop to get the lay of the land. I cannot stress how important a book like this for a course you are unfamiliar. It would be a Great investment!

If you can bang it out there at least 230 on the fly, don't layup from the tee. Knock it over the bunker on the right. The hole sets up to be much more receptive to approach shots coming in from the right side and even if you spray it right, there is plenty of open space although you might have some difficult rough to contend with.
Aim just left of bunkers on right. Second shot to trap on right will give you around 100 in. There is a waste area on the left. Kiss your ball good bye if you find yourself in that junk. I did and I was lucky if you want to call it that. The heather will, if you're lucky, only cost you a stroke.
