Course is OK for the price. Very laid back atmosphere and a great place to teach my kids golf. However, they have created a foot golf course which weaves in and out of the golf holes. So besides waiting for the foursome of golfers in front of you, you know have the soccer crowd butting in to play their foot golf holes. Terrible idea, and completely slowed down the game even more.
Yes a golf course with character. It would not be uncommon to find children playing on the greens or people playing outdoor games in the middle of this public park fairway. Simply tee up and take your stroke preying you don't whack somebody with your shot.
Inexpensive and challenging this course offers nine pretty cool holes including a par 5 among the 4 par 4's. The 3rd hole par 3 is the signature challenge hole that is a lot of fun. Come one and come all for a great time to laugh and play in the heart of a city park where all kinds of obstacles can challenge your patience and game! Have fun... I do!
Living in land park I love this course! I would not say it is the best maintained course in Sacramento but the price is right - $10 (twilight) after work is the best deal going. A beautiful walk in the park combined with a little golf is the perfect way to end a rough day.
Pace of play very slow. Tee boxes in terrible condition. Ball marks on greens not repaired. Grumpy old marshal bullies experienced junior golfers to move to brown tees but does do anything to push hacks to forward tees while they continue to play painfully slow and spray their shots all over the course. For junior golfers with a NCGA YOC membership - its better to play at Haggin Oaks or Bartley Cavanaugh instead you'll get a better value and challenge at those courses - And you'll not get bullied by condescending, arrogant marshals there.
If you're a serious golfer or someone who's nit-picky about how straight your putt will roll, you may want to pass on this course.
If, like me, the quality of your golf is at best, piss poor, and you enjoy searching for your lost ball in the shade of a 150 year old heritage oak, this course might be a good fit.
The grill is casual and a bit run down. Food's just fine though, with daily specials and even some great brews on tap.
The links are on the short short side. Makes me feel manly. The sand is flat and easy to get up & out. Lots of shade, wide fairways. If you're an early riser, you'll likely miss any many obnoxious players (they tend to sleep in).
Nearby: Vic's, Freeport Bakery, Marie's Donuts, Oscar's, a brewery with roll-up doors and several coffee shops. Just right for an early morning start to your day.
