I've played here about 5 times in the past two months after being away for 10 years. Apparently Google has taken responsibility for much of the Moffett Field infrastructure and is making a visible effort to improve the course. They've trimmed the trees and removed some other trash trees to open up the sight lines around the course. The poa greens are in good shape and run firm and fast. The fairways are a mixed bag due to the low lying flat terrain and Bay proximity. Some areas around the course have patches of bare/thin grass. Where bermuda/kikuyu has taken over, the ball sits up nicely. They're rebuilding the teeboxes one at a time and I expect the overall conditions to continue to improve. As to the course, layout there are some sharp doglegs and a quirky mix of holes that go out toward the airfield and back to the clubhouse on each of the nines. With the prevailing bay breezes, there are some challenging 200 yd. par 3's and longish par 5's to keep your attention. The daily fee is $37 for walkers and the staff is extremely courteous and helpful. The range is scruffy but the chipping and putting areas are well-maintained.
He would play this course again.
Moffet Field Golf, has been my go to course. Overall is a good 18 hole course, with variety and character. Its pretty awesome to be able to play on the airfield base. Good tee boxes, good fairways, good greens, I play here 2-3 times a month, defiantly the best bang for your buck. I will refer my fellow golfers here. Come play the links at Moffet Field.

If you have never been here, it is one of the best kept secrets in the bay! You get a stunning view of the water, to the Moffett Field Hangers, and even the hills in Fremont! Great quality, challenging holes, and always something different at each hole.
This is the best you can get- especially if you grab the twilight price- which is an 18 hole for the price of a 9 hole. Never been? Find a friend that works at NASA or can get you on there! You will have a great time!
Moffet Field Golf Course is now open to the public. It used to be reserved for the military and to contractors who worked with the base. Now it is open to all, however, you have to check into the front gate of the compound and provide your ID to security. It's kind of a hassle to tell you the truth.
The course itself has potential, but it could use better maintenance of fairways and greens. Perhaps being close to the Bay is the reason, but some fairways are bare and the greens are pretty slow. Overall the layout is ok, a variety of dog legs and straight holes mixed in among the trees.
They do have a large practice putting green and a short game area to hit your chips. The clubhouse staff is friendly and accommodating.
You may want to give it a try if you need to play a military course, but don't expect pristine conditions, it's definitely for the muni golfer.
Played here yesterday after work. It's been 3 years since I've been here.
The one thing that's great about this course is that it is cheap for contractors. Twilight rates after 3pm are only 15 bucks, super twilight rates after 1.5 hours before sunset is only 10 bucks. It's nice to play here in June since you have the most sunlight. You'll need to be an approved contractor to be allowed into Moffett Field as there are two guards who will check your ID. (Not sure which companies are included in the list)
Seems like the fairways are not well kept. There are patches of dirt here and there. What is the most nasty thing is, on the 13 hole, there is just blue gunk all over the first half of the fairway. Not sure what it is.
The place doesn't seem too busy during the weekday. When I started late afternoon, I was the 2nd to last person to tee off. And it was a comfortable game pace from there.
This golf course has a pitching green, nice putting green, and a terrible range that is all dirt and golf balls that have been used for numerous years.
Bottom Line: Cheap golf prices for a decent 18 hole course. Enough to get your golf fix.
