Played here last Saturday in 100+ degree heat, just after watching the British Open 3rd round on television. It had been 9 months since my last visit but I thought this course would remind me of the British Open course, and I was right. Bumpy, burned out fairways and overgrown rough, this is not a well maintained course, but for $8 for 9 holes and OK greens, it beats hitting a bucket of balls at the driving range. The Fresno-Hanford area has had a really hot Summer and this course shows it, but the staff is friendly, the beer is cheap, and this is a challenging 9 holes that will challenge your ball striking. For a little more than a bucket of balls at the range you can actually play 9 holes, so if you keep that realistic comparison in your head you will enjoy this course for what it is.
I wish I could give a "proper" review, meaning i've been tthere to play, or know how much they charge, or give some kind of information, but I can't. You'll see a sign for a golf course on your way out to Visalia/Tulare on the 198 E to your right side (across the street from the flea market). It's a country road, and sitting passenger, I couldnt see anything that resembled a golf course. We had actually passed it. To describe this course...hmmm. First off, I wasn't sure if it was in business any longer because it looks like it's abandoned - I'm being VERY nice here. The grass is dead in many patches, weeds are overgrown...it looks sad, destitute, & dying. We came across the "club house" which looks like someone's low income mobile home. How embarrassing...for all of us who live around here. Shortly after we stumbled onto the parking lot area, a large truck came by and blocked us from leaving. The guy in the truck came up pretty fast, & wasn't too friendly. He demanded to know what we were doing there & something else I can't remember. I thought it was funny & completely ridiculous. He didn't offer a phone number, operation hours, how much it cost, or anything helpful (assuming he owned it, was an employee or had something to do with the facility). For those local, let me put it this way: think Hidden Valley Park, but if no one tended to it for YEARS and then someone decided to call the dump a golf course. the end.
