This is one of the best golf courses in the bay area. Not only is it a very good deal ($47 on the weekend), but it is so close to Berkeley. The staff really goes the extra mile and the course is in great condition....More

For those reviewers that have claimed Tilden Park GC to be the "best in the Bay Area", get a grip. This place is completely overpriced. Not only is the place constantly under repair because of horrible drainage, but the gouge you with the price as...More

Very good golf course in the hills above Berkeley. Very hilly, some excellent and difficult holes. Some great downhill shots. Signature 16th hole, long par 3 overlooks the entire golf course. Tall trees, very green area. You might even see some deer. Not for beginners....More

A challenging big 18 hole course in a green natural reserve paradise . Many technical requesting for the players but the golfers will have an unforgettable experience . While you will be around don't miss it .

Whether you golf or not, this is a great place for lunch. It’s rarely crowded and the food is just OK. It’s a bit pricey, $14 for a sandwich, chips and soda. However if it’s a nice day, it is an amazing place to sit...More

Can't recommend Tilden Park golf course until they cut the ubiquitous knee high grass. Looking for balls in the high grass is futile and time consuming. For the sake of pace of play, Tilden Park G.C. has to cut the grass!

This is a nice course but be prepared to wait at least 30 minutes from your expected tee time. These people have no idea how to schedule. A 4 and 1/2 hour round took us well over 6 hours to complete due to the stack...More
