Course Review and Comments
I read a negative review of this fine course and couldn't believe it. Obviously, this 14 handicapper Holman had more agenda than game. This is one of the only real links style courses you can play in Northern California and at a price that makes a few hours drive to experience it very affordable. The course is fun and challenging and visually beautiful. On a nice day, you can easily imagine yourself somewhere in Europe! The sand in the bunkers is wonderful -- I think this guy just sculled a few and decided to blame someone other than himself. Anytime I buy something, I read reviews on the internet and there always seems to be one crank who hates a product or course or whatever while the majority loves it. So take Mr. Holman's review with a grain of salt (personally I think he may have been taking something else) and try this magnificent course for yourself. My best advice though is to try and play it more than once or with someone who knows the course and play from tees appropriate to your skill level. I am a pretty decent player and often I have a blast playing from the forward tees. It's plenty challenging and helps you learn how to play the course from the tees a bit further back. If you can't afford a trip to Scotland -- give this a try!

So, I have played the course at least a dozen times.To everyone who has difficulty with this course, and I am no exception, I have found that learning to putt better, choosing the CORRECT tee blocks,

a tough course for sure, exacerbated by wind. the native grasses make any errant shot a lost ball, and with no parallel fairways, you have to keep it in the short stuff. watch the forecast for winds

Now mind you, this course is a challenge, pick your tee blocks wisely. on a windy day the gusts can easily sustain 50 mile an hour. on a mild day you are still looking at 10-15 mph winds with gusts up

This is just a clarification. I tried to put my handicap down as not established. I've only been playing for a year. I also tried to put the price I paid down as 2 for 1 through " Club 19 Golf &q

My job has allowed me to play many courses in Northern California this year. I have had the priviledge of playing some beautiful courses, including Sevillano Links. I have played this course many time

What a tough course. Windy day, so keeping the ball on the fairway was tough. Lost my first ball when my approach shot was about 2 feet to the left of the #1 green, watched it bounce and into a reed

I had both a good and bad experience at Sevillano.
First thing is the practice area. I would consider it first rate. Driving range, practice green and putting green were all in excellent shape. Th

I do not know why a course would set a course up this way with second cut of rough being over 4 inches. The rough is all native grasses also and results in a lost ball in most places and 6 hour round
