1st time out on this course. Staff and local players very friendly. Narrow. Tough greens. Had a great time and will return. Golf Now price was a bargain in this area this time of year.

My wife and I were scheduled to play the course on Saturday at 11:52. The day before our tee time, we received a call from a gentleman from De Anza informing us that there was a tournament that day and we would not be able to play. He offered to schedule us for another day. Because of our schedule, we were not able to take him up on his offer. I have no issue with the golf course but their communication with Golf Now was lacking. I should not have be able to book that time, as I did on line. We had to make last minute plans to play another course in the area, which wasn't easy at such short notice and the fact, there are only three golf courses in the valley, and would cost much more that the posted rate. We ended up paying twice as much for our golf as a result.
Not happy about it

We got a very good rate through GolfNow, which included cart and range balls. The course is very green and lush with tremendous views of the mountains and hills. The course is reasonably straightforward and from tee to green reasonable challenging. However the greens gave us a lot of problems because of they were much faster than we expected. We really enjoyed playing this course and would recommend it. I can not say enough about the staff. They were the friendliest and most helpful staff of any course that we have played at.

De Anza is a nice course that seems to play much longer than the scorecard appears to indicate, probably because the fairways are so lush that drives get little rollout.

The greens are very firm, and it’s virtually impossible to get any spin around the greens, even on bunker shots. And, to further complicate matters, the green surrounds appear to be bluegrass, which makes chip shots shoot off the club face much faster than most other grasses, so chips and pitches are all very delicate shots that can make even the simplest strokesaving shots difficult for even low handicappers.

We actually played the course twice, in very gusty winds the first day, as high as 70mph at times, which was pretty brutal. However, the next day was beautiful, with hardly a puff of wind. The course played a lot easier without the gusty winds, but it’s still not easy to score on this tract, though it’s still fun and in great condition.

He would play this course again.
