Combines nice par-3 and Executive - length 9-hole courses and a decent grass practice facility. Two putting greens, a chipping green and driving range round out the outdoor practice facility. Courses are great for kids, beginners, seniors, even the advanced golfer wishing to work on hitting greens in regulation. The turf was very well maintained, although I wish golfers would... More

Excellent condition. Played the par-32 Blue course with an elderly relative. Able to use my driver on 3 holes, teed off with a sand wedge on 2 holes, used everything in between. Played in 2 hours and the layout was a suitable test for my companion. Nice practice facility as well. For what it is, it is done very well.

Bay Meadows is a great course with a longer 9 and a par 3 course. It has great practice facilities with chipping greens, full driving range, and teaching facility. The course is well groomed and nicely marked. The staff is very kind and welcoming. Prices are super reasonable. ALL AGES are welcome and encouraged.

My sons and I booked a tee time for this golf course in order to 'save' my future son-in-law from having to accompany his future bride to her bridal shower with the girls (think finger sandwiches and inane games-eeww). Bill , unlike his future in-laws (my two sons and I), is not a golfer. I wanted to find a suitable... More

My husband and I golf at most three times each summer. The executive course was perfect for us. It's a basic course with an up north feel and reasonable rates.

My son, father-in-law and I recently visited Bay Meadow Golf Course. We arrived on time, but the group ahead of us was a little behind. The own asked us if we wouldn't mind hitting some balls on the range until the back-up was cleared. After the round on the course, my son lost his sweatshirt. The owner allowed us to... More

Bay Meadows is pleasant enough. And if you're looking for a course where you're likely to find a tee time, and not looking to spend a lot of time during your outing it's a good outing. I also noted several groups with young children. Given the shortness of the course--with a nine-hole par three-only option, that should not be surprising.

If you are looking for a championship course designed by a well-known pro golfer, this is NOT the course for you. If you want a nice course for a simple round of golf with friends, Bay Meadows would fit the bill.
