Have been playing golf for several years and have always loved this crazy game. The frustration of hitting a bad shot or missing a short putt can get to you but no better feeling than seeing your drive striped down the middle or that iron shot that ends up next to the pin. I plan to play more as my perspective on life has changed a bit. Being a recent pancreatic cancer survivor made me realize the good things in life are still out there. Don't want to miss em!

I last played AH about 3 months and said then that I would not likely play for some time. So I lied! My son in law and his brother, took me out to play here on Father’s day. The guys in the clubhouse and the starter are great and made for a nice start. The starter on the #1 tee had things well organized for a what was going to be a super busy day and we went off on time at 7:20.
The course is in nice shape right now and one could not complain about the conditions. Agree with the last 2 reviews. Fairways are lush and green. Didn’t have a bad lie. The rough was also lush and cut down just right. Bunkers are also in very good condition.
The greens are rolling good for the most part but bumpy on certain areas. You can see the whiteish flower beginning to grow on the poa annua and although a little bumpy, I still give them a good rating.
The layout is not one of my favs. It is not a long course but you cannot be spraying the driver on many holes. We finished in a little more than 4.5 hours. Could have been faster but waited on just about every hole and the group behind us fell way back, two holes behind. That’s the knock on this course, pace of play. Some of the fairways are narrow and trees come into play not to mention guys spending time looking for lost balls. It is what it is and unless you can get out real early, don’t expect a fast round.» Close

Played Coyote Hills with my monthly neighborhood group on 6/11. Had a 10:20 tee time on a rather warm day but we had plenty of water and snacks to make it through. This is only my third time playing here and the other two times were scramble tournaments so this is the first time playing my own ball throughout.
Check-in was a little hassle. They were training a new person who was struggling to get the green fee correct. She charged me the premium rate of $75. I mentioned I was a senior and she had to correct the computer again. She charged me $56 where I mentioned I thought the senior rate was $50. No response so the more seasoned starter indicated that the $56 rate includes lunch and a drink. Wasn’t looking to have lunch after but didn’t want to go through this check-in hassle any further so I just paid it and walked on.
The course is in good condition with a couple of flaws. The fairways looked like many have been aerated a while ago but haven’t fully recovered. Not terrible but pretty thin so not at their best. I imagine they will be better in the upcoming months. Bunkers were hit and miss. One was perfect and yet another I was in was rock hard. The rough was in good shape and cut just about right.
The greens are excellent. Smooth, rolling fast, holding shots and in some cases provided back spin if it well. Very nice.
Despite the heat, I enjoyed playing here. Finished in in just under 4 hours. The cart associate came by a couple times so we were not without refreshments. A pretty hilly course with many elevation changes from the tee boxes. It plays relatively short and there are a few holes that do not require hitting a driver. We played it from the blues which is only around 5,600 yards but just because it’s a bit short doesn’t make it easy. Target golf on some holes so if do hit driver, don’t spray it. Recommend and looking forward to the next time.» Close

Up once again this year to play in my college faculty/alumni tournament on 5/28. I love it up here and was so looking forward to playing. For the first time ever that I have seen this course in less than great condition. The course opened in mid-May which was much later than they usually open but the cold weather continued and delayed the opening. Talking with the course staff, even after opening they had some snow and ice which impacted the greens.
The fairways though were great shape. Great lies if hitting from the fairway. The rough however was very thick. Ridiculously so. You could easily lose your ball just a few feet off of the fairway. They just haven’t been able to put a mower on the rough to cut it down. Bunkers and tee boxes were in great shape.
The greens which are always in great shape, were beat up. The areas on the greens that were in good shape where slow. Again, they tell me lack of sunshine, cold weather has prevented the greens to mature.
Aside from the thick rough and below average greens, it is still a great place to play. I am giving BC a mulligan as I know they will get things in order soon. The staff in the clubhouse and in the restaurant are great and always accommodating. This is not a difficult course with generous fairways and large greens so you can score well but it so much fun to play. It is definitely one of my favorites.» Close

On a trip up through No. Calif, we stopped at Links of Rolling Hills. Was checking weather.com as it had been raining but was supposed to stop around 10:30 so we got a tee time at 11:20. Well they were a bit off on the weather as we ended up teeing off in light rain and cold wind. It finally cleared up around the 6th hole and was beautiful on the back 9. Paid the rack rate of $50 and as a 2 some, we finished in just under 4.5 hours. Really slowed down on #8 as we came to a complete halt. We waited over 15 minutes on the tee. The group behind us got very impatient and encouraged us to join the 2 some ahead of us. I said no as that wasn’t the reason why it got slow so I guess that ticked them off and they decided to call the clubhouse to complain. Hey chill out! Their complaint resonated throughout the course as many of the course staff became aware. Course staff came out to move things along and talked to us on the course. Great staff work but was unnecessary. The back 9 moved just fine and the group behind us fell way back. Great playing back there guys!! Ok enough
The course is in good shape. Fairways are recovering from the winter but still great lies in the fairways. The rough was thick but playable as I don’t think they were able to cut it with the rain that has come through. You cannot be wide here with your drive. Very thick native areas border all of the fairways and balls that go in there are lost. Bunkers were in good shape. Despite the rain, they played well.
The greens were in great condition and rolled very true despite the rain.
I really like playing here. It’s a beast and easy to lose balls but is still fun to play. Not a typical course with numerous trees. To the contrary, no trees but rolling fairways. I played well on this day but only because I didn’t go in the native areas. FYI, they also have a nice casino and we stopped in to have a few beers and drop a few at the tables. Look forward to coming back. Definitely recommend!!» Close

A little late with this review as I played Woodcreek on Sunday 5/26 with an old college friend. We were making our way up to a tournament and stopped in SAC area to visit friends and play golf. Bought a golf moose deal for $59 for 2 and had an 11:16 tee time. For a holiday weekend, it was pretty crowded but we played as a 2 some until joined by a single on the 5th hole. Not much waiting on any groups and finished in just under 4 hours.
The course is in pretty good condition overall. Fairways were green and lush. Not many bare spots and really nice lies. The rough was thick and lush. No issues with the tee boxes but many of them could have been mowed. Bunkers were not very good. The ones I were in were terrible. Not even sand but hard, compacted dirt. Best to stay out of them.
Greens were nice and rolled great. Average size greens but some undulations.
The layout is not my favorite. A muni layout really. Some blind shots especially #5. Fortunately, the single who played with us knew the course otherwise we would have really struggled. IMO, the back 9 is nicer with holes that have some nice mature trees that meander through some nice homes. Although the course is in nice shape and worth a stop to play but not sure if it will be on my can’t wait play again list.» Close
