This is always a fun course to drive up to. The layout reminds me of Teal Bend on the lower holes and The Ridge on the upper holes (if you play in the Sac Region). Many... read more

This is always a fun course to drive up to. The layout reminds me of Teal Bend on the lower holes and The Ridge on the upper holes (if you play in the Sac Region). Many signature holes that require creativity. Also has a lot of risk/reward holes that are always fun. Price is always fair and the course tends... More

Let's start with the fact there are not a lot of options for golf in this up and coming wine country known as Amador County of Plymouth. So whether you are staying in Jackson, Sutter Creek, Amador City or Plymouth, the town of Ione and Castle Oaks Golf Course are not too far away. The fact is that friends &... More

I would like to start this review by stating that the course is good looking. But the faults are in some case over whelming. 1. Sand traps are full of rocks. 2. Ponds are foul and on warmer days they smell. 3. Trees overhang some hole making them almost impossible to get at the flag. 4. They don't keep the... More

This is a jewel in the foothills. It is a well run, well maintained and fun golf course that is open to the public. It offers full facilities for golf, eating and drinking. You will be challenged by the course on every hole. Some holes look easier then they really are, and some are just downright mean like the 18th... More

I don't play Golf but several people that do say it's a good place to golf. I've eaten at the restaurant a couple of times and it has been good. Nice view.

$45 on Saturday or Sunday is a steal! This track is well maintained and the greens are always in great condition. The layout has a ton of character. The holes are challenging but fair. 18 holes usually plays in under 4.25 hours. Proshop has a substantial amount of products at reasonable prices. The clubhouse resturant and bar is reasonably priced... More

I have been there about four times and each time is was an ok experience. The course if nice and the greens were ok. I think the last time I went it was slightly raining and the greens were not in great shape because of the weather....

Golfing is definitely challenging and rated one of the top courses in Northern California. They offer a breakfast and lunch menu that is not only delicious but very filling. Also offering a sports bar to toast the win!

The course presented a challenge to golfers of all levels but the major attraction for me was the views. Lots of big oaks, a couple of creeks, and undulating landscape on a beuatiful fall day was a golfers paradise. It was hard to believe that I was less than a mile from a prison
