Way Ovedue!

Spent the morning with Johnny, Alex, and BSF a couple Wednesday's ago at Rancho Solano. This is my favorite course outside of the East Bay as its pretty easy to get to and offers a good challenge while also being fun.

It's known to many as the Home of the 3Putt! Huge greens, pretty firm and decent speed...

The course was in great shape overall. Checkin was easy... and the grill was clean.

Just a hop, skip and jump off 80 if your traveling between SF and Sacramento
Had an absolute blast playing in my first GKPlays event on Saturday, 7/22.
Enjoyed meeting other GK'ers from Norcal on SoCal. JOhnny was a great host and brought out an impressive amount of swag. Nobody went home empty handed!

I have played Yocha Dehe over 10 times the past few years. In my opinion, it's the best course in Northern California. The service, and staff, the facility are second to none and at a very fair price.

The course offers a challenge to any golfer that plays it. The tees and fairways were in great shape with a few exceptions. I was disappointed in the greens. I have never seen them like that. My guess if I'm allowed one is that they hosted a large tournament the day before and that mixed with the heat did not allow them to heal in time.

Other than that, It was a great day at a great course with some great people!
Day 2 of GK Does NorCal out at Oakmont West in beautiful Sonoma Wine Country!

Oakmont West is a fun 6500yd course with lots of unique challenges and fun holes. Multiple descending and eleveated doglegs on this course keep you on your toes when you are in the tee box.

The course is surrounded by homes with well manicured backyards and lot's of wildlife. The course is a good value and a fun way to spend the day in Sonoma Wine Country.

The course is nestled in the Valley of the Moon which makes for some great views. Fairways are from tight and narrow to wide and descending...

Greens are fair and range from medium to postage stamp. I don't think they have a single flat hole on the property. Your approach shots in are hitting up into a protected green or from a fairway that slopes down and back into a green that runs from you. This course is not long but is technical.

Check-in was a breeze and the restaurant and walk-up window serve great grub. The cart girl's brother is a Cal Rugby Player (Go Bears!).

If you are bringing the sticks to wine country, this place will not disapoint!
Round 2 of the Day with JohnnyGK & CIT. First time to Paradise Valley which is also directly off HWY 80 and about 10 minutes from Rancho Solano.

Started off in the Club House before our 2PM tee time. The food, service, and staff were exceptional. Do not pass up an opportunity to grab a bite here before or after your round! Also looked like they have live music on the patio on Thursday nights!

I had zero knowledge of this course prior to the day so I played extremely vanilla till I got comfortable. I found the course to be very fair with the right amount of of challenge.

This course is on the longer side compared to Rancho Solano with long, narrow fairways and smaller greens.

The greens are not particularly tricky, just smaller compared to it's sister course up the hill.

Small creeks come into play along with some aggressive doglegs into elevated and in some instances tucked greens.

Overall it's a fun course with a good challenge at a great value and easily accessible!
I played Rancho Solano with Johnny GK & CIT on 7/20. Part of a 36 hole day up in Fairfield.

We tee'd off promptly at 7:15AM, weather was perfect in the high 60's with just a hint of a breeze.

Rancho Solano is tucked into the hills between Fairfield and the Green Valley area. It's about a 5 min drive off Interstate 80 which makes it very accessible to anyone headed to Sacramento or San Francisco from the Valley, and only 20 minutes from the 680/24/4 corridor.

The course was in great shape, from the tees thru the greens. From the blue tees the course runs around 6500yds. You don't need to be long off the tee to score here.

The fairways are very accessible and fair, with some mild to aggressive doglegs.

Once you get to the greens the game changes. The greens are very large with many contours, ridges, and tiers. The pin placement for the day made for some challenging putts. Your short game will make or break you here.

I really enjoy this course and the unique challenge of the green complex's.
Played Rancho Solano on 5/19. 7:15 Tee time. Course is in the foothills just north of I80 in Fairfield, about 30 minutes (with no traffic) from the East Bay.

The course is public and owned by the city. Was a semi-private club until the bust. Course is tucked into a gated community with many holes bordering homes.

This course is affectionately know as the "Home of the 4 putt". The greens here were spectacular, very fast, true, and difficult.

The course is not long, or overly technical. It has some risk-reward holes and a few extreme dog legs, mixed with some fun par-3's. The course is very fair, and fun, with the just the right amount of difficulty.

The green complex's are huge, so on in two is easily achievable, but you need to be on the right part of the green if you hope to par.

I really enjoyed my round here and was in and out in 3:45. Was never rushed, or waited long.
Played Boundary Oak on Saturday, 3/10/17.
One of the first dry and sunny day's in NorCal this year.

Course has drained out pretty well. Some bare spots in fairways on a few holes.

Check in was easy. Sam has a great staff working for him.

New balls (finally) on the driving range!
Worked the Pepsi Tour Event on Monday, 3/13/17. Championship tees at 6500 for the day. Weather was sunny and clear, 70 degrees, and very little breeze. We had 16 players with 14 pro's and two amateurs.

The pro shop staff and captains were excellent to work with. Great putting and chipping, and practice bunker facilities. The driving range is short, maybe 200yds, and is not accessible via cart. They have a shuttle service take you down and back.

Course was in fantastic shape. The greens are phenomenal, and extremely difficult. We were told by sevral staff and players that the greens are as close to Augusta greens you can get.

Fairways, tee's and bunker complex's were what you would expect from a Mackenize course.

POP was around 4 half hours (walking) Lot's of up and downs and undulations.

Great experience and conditions.
Played Quail Lodge 12/4/16 along with fellow GK Guru Krajon01 as part of the GK Review Guru outing. Quail Lodge is beautiful, 18 hole golf course nestled in the Carmel Valley, about 10 minutes from Pebble Beach and 17 Mile Drive.

The course is perfectly tucked into the canyon between the Santa Lucia Preserve to the west and, and Carmel Highlands to the east. The course wraps around an established development of homes on the front and back side along with the lodge residences, with the Carmel River snaking around sections of the course.

The course plays at 6400+ from the tips, and is a mix of challenging par 3's, narrow par 4's and doglegged par 5's.

The course is on par with what you would expect when it comes to playing in the Monterey Peninsula. Fairways, greens, bunker complex's, and overall playing surface are exquisite, and as good or close to the Pebble Beach Company Courses.

To me, the signature of of this course is the small postage stamp greens which are firm, fast, pure, and true. These greens rival championship courses frequented by the PGA Tour.

Another feature that stands out to me is the bunker complex's which were fair, yet provided a challenge with their depth and size throughout the course.

I enjoyed the course as a whole, from check-in to finish. The starter, cart attendants, and pro shop staff are welcoming, and very informative.

While technically a resort course with private membership, guests do not need to stay at the lodge to play.

The course is affordable, fun, fair and challenging. I cant wait to go back and play it again.
Post Thanksgiving Day round at the home track. Course continues to be in great shape and holding up well with the rain, moisture, and colder temps. Greens are outstanding and playing faster.

Really enjoyable course at a good price. #GreenFriday
Played Boundary Oak Friday Morning 11/11/16. 8:36 Tee Time with some other locals. $65 for 18 w/ a cart.

Weather was balmy, bit of humidity and moisture, around 60 degrees when we tee'd off. Lot's of moisture on the course, and fairways had been recently cut.

Course is in great shape from the tee's to the greens, the bunkers, and 2nd cut.

Recent bunker upgrades are visibly noticeable and the sand has leveled out.

Greens were a bit slow w/ the moisture, but ball was rolling well.

Course started drying out around 11:30, and it was 75 and sunny as we finished.

POP was 4hrs.
Played FoxTail North with fellow GK'er Krajan01 and another friend on Saturday 11/5/16. 10:36 Tee Time.

$35.00 pp w/ cart, booked online directly through the course website. Check in was easy. Golf shop had the standard items available, and is adjacent to the bar and grill. Staff was nice, very accommodating. We all had different questions as none of us had played there before.

First of all, this is a large property with 36 holes and a driving range. The north course is across the street in another subdivision, and wraps around houses and a small strip mall at the corner of Fairview and Golf course drive.

The course is 1 mile off Hwy 101, and is 5 minutes away from Graton casino, and 20 minutes away from some wineries. It's in a pretty good location.

Course was flat, tree lined, some bunkering near landing zones off the tee, lot's of dog legs. It setup nicely for everyone's game.

Greens were great, rolling smooth and pure. Greens were tier'd but nothing dramatic.

Really enjoyed the course and for $35.00 it was a great deal.

We only played 16 holes as a two some directly in front of us, and a 3 some in front of them were playing super slow. Took us 5 hours to get through 16 and it would have probably taken another 45 to finish the last two holes. Only downside of the trip.

Would love to play it mid week with less people.
