Haven't played here this year but many times previous years. Frankly, I quit coming as the quality and overall upkeep was diminishing. However, I saw lush fairways, clean fluffy traps, well kept greens and minimal broken branches and debris around. Although, the ponds do need to be cleaned and strained of muck to improve the look. It's the same small pro shop and ageing restaurant but I come to play golf and enjoy the course experience more than anything. This place has improved and now a favorite for value!

Played here 4-5 times about 10 years ago, liked it OK, moved away & hadn't played here since - but was going to be passing through on highway 99 with some extra time, so when I found a great Hot Price, I thought I'd stop and play 18 and check it out. Was curious to see what shape it was in after being majorly flooded for a few months after all the winter rains. I was a little concerned after reading some recent negative reviews, but booked it anyway & figured for the great price I got, I could quit after 9 if it was really that bad.

Yes, the pro shop looks dated (mostly due to all the apparel being shown with plastic covers), yes, the gentleman there is older and not the friendliest chap you'll ever meet, yes, the brakes on my cart sucked, yes, the course is MUCH longer than newer courses are, yes, some of the greens aren't in the best of shape, yes, there are a LOT of trees that make some fairways on the narrow side, and yes, the ponds on #4 (?) are pretty scuzzy, totally covered with algae. My answer to all that is : so what ! I got a super price at a good time of day, enjoyed playing a course where I was challenged by the length, (and if it's too long for your game, just move up to the next tees - isn't the whole idea to enjoy your round ? - who cares which tees you end up hitting off ?!) I hit my drive into the trees a few times, but enjoyed the challenge of breaking out the good ol' "grab a 3 iron & punch it out as far as your can" shot, and made it around in less than 3 hours, even having to go through 3 other groups on each side ( I did play as a single, and HATE slow golf, so would NEVER try this place on a weekend.)

So - if it's a "Trump National" experience you're craving, avoid this place like the plague. But - if you want a challenging but fair (& fun ) round on an old-school course in your basic muni-like condition - and at a GREAT price (if you can find a Hot Price tee time that works for you ) then by all means, give Dry Creek a try ! (& leave after nine if you aren't enjoying yourself !)
