I and my family play here once a year for the past 4 years and have always enjoyed this course. It may not be an elite course but it has always been maintained appropriately. The high note, the staff!!!! Hard to find a more accommodating and friendly staff at any golf course, we have always been treated really well and that is why I wanted to write this review.

For the course itself, I have to say this year was the best I have seen the condition of the fairways and greens. The sand traps are a wee bit rough, need sand. Great course to walk, not too hilly and fairly flat.

Ladies--stay away!!!! Lots of long par 5s with an unequal starting tee blocks. May be good if you like hitting your fairway woods/hybrids over and over and over. Some bad angles from the red tees. High fences near some tee boxes are very distracting. Bumpy, uneven course shows lack of good landscaping over the decades. I just don't like playing here.

btw, name changed from Royal Vista to San Ramon Golf Club. Marketing has put out some misleading offers--read it carefully and ask questions. It may not be what you think.

This is a fun public course to play but you can tell it's not being managed by a rich big company. It would be nice if they would put sand in the bunkers instead of dirt. Yes they improved the driving range but the track itself still needs lots of improvements.

This course has some redeeming qualities. #9 and #18 are fun because of the water. The Par 3s are tough and the greens are in fairly good shape. The course uses reclaimed water which smells terrible when the sprinklers come on. Many of the ball washers are empty of soap and water. Too many sand traps are just dry and hard with no sand. It's an OK value at $30 w/cart but I would never pay $63 on the weekend when I can play Tahoe Donner for $60.

This place is a dump. The staff was rude and arrogant, not friendly at all. Guy up front running the shop was a complete jerk!

They charged us $50 to play a course worth $20. It was 105 degrees and there is no running water fountains on the course, cart girls, or water jugs with cups. Nearly died from heat stroke. Greens were bumpy and beat up, and bunkers had barely any sand in half of them. Find a better deal elsewhere.
