The course was in greatl condition with several challenging holes to offset several fairly easy ones. So there was something for every skill level.The price was definately right (cart included), and being on the flight path into SFO, airplane watching was a nice perk for those who enjoy sightseeing to offset any errant shots.

Besides the greens being in good shape and the picturesque clubhouse and 18th hole, there was little to like about Poplar Creek.

The pro shop seems very unprofessional, for two reasons. The first, is there inability to keep the pace of play up, as was evident over my 5 1/2 hour round. The group in front of us consisted of two beginner golfer who where playing from the back and intermediate tees, when they should have been playing from much closer. Also, a joke of a golfer waited for a group to vacate the green of a 285 yard par 4, thinking he could hit it on with a 15 mph wind in his face. These things where obvious and seen by one of the pro shop employees multiple times as he made his marshal rounds.

Secondly, they did not honor the rate we paid for through Golf Now. It was a Hot Deal tee time, which said it included a golf cart, but upon checking in, the guy said it was a walking only rate, because they recently stopped including carts with the hot deals because they where "loosing money". We had to pay an additional $34 on top of the $85 steal... I would have believed it was my mistake, if our playing partners hadn't had the same experience. THIS WAS A SCAM. Poplar Creek should honor the agreed upon rate and Golf Now should be more vigilant of their course partners participation in their reservation system.

The collusion of this rip-off, paired with this unexciting dog-track of a course is extremely upsetting. This course, which is in a great location right on the bay, should be much nicer, but also very ashamed of their business practices. A $34 refund for us and our playing partners is the only decent action that would not necessitate anyone from reading this review to boycott Poplar Creek.
