Sunol Valley Golf Club features two championship courses. The unique geography and strategic location of these courses provide a great golf getaway for residents of the Bay Area.
Cypress is considered the easier of our two Courses. Playing just 6,195 yards from the tips, Cypress is known not so much from its length as its wonderful views. Cypress offers nature at its best proving a tranquil setting that golfers seem to be drawn to.
The tougher of Sunol's two courses - the palm course plays 6,406 yards from the white tees and can pose quite a challenge on a windy day. Judging the conditions and picking the right clubs for your approaches will be key.
Average Hole Difficulty

I play at Sunol a fair amount because it is the only thing close, and because tee times are pretty easily obtained. Both courses offer some interesting hole designs, and would be fantastic if they spent a little money on upkeep. Tee boxes are not mowed enough so if you don't bring really long tees, you could be in trouble. Fairways are usually too short and dried out so that you're hitting off hard pan. Rough is usually the place to be because at least the ball sits on a little grass. A little love from the greens keepers and these would be fantastic. But as it stands the past few years, not worth the money unless like me, you can't stomach the hour drive out to surrounding courses that are truly worth the money.

The Palm course is a wide open, resort style course without a lot of character. Other than the planted palm trees that are scattered along the fairways, there isn't a lot of foliage. Landing areas are large off the tee, and there isn't much bunkering. The greens are on the small side, and fairly flat. The course is very walkable, and you do get nice views of the surrounding hills.
The Palm Course has some very interesting history. When the course opened in April 27th, 1968, it was at the time the fourth longest course in the nation measuring 7,408 yards. What made it completely unique was that the owner spent $325,000 to illuminate the entire course so that night golf can exist. All the lights were placed on the trunks of the palm trees. The owner was quoted saying" We'll hold tournaments at night. And I can see the time when fellas will organize night golf leagues like they do in bowling." They let people tee off as late as 9 PM and play until 2 o'clock in the morning. The head pro at the time said "You can follow the tee shot all the way. The ball really shows up at night. It's real white." Awesome!

The greens were AWFUL - each green has a different speed, which means you are basically guessing the speed of your putts on each one. The fairways and tee boxes were just barely ok. I would skip this one if you have $50 to spend. Just spend a little more and play a nicer course.

The course has a couple of holes that are ridiculous. with little or no fairway to approach from or with slopes that give you no chance of landing a playable ball. Everyone in our group, from novice to experienced golfers, was frustrated and annoyed by at least 3 holes on the course.
The price was right, about $57 with cart when booked online for Sunday play. The scenery is nice and, surprisingly, the noise from Hwy 680 isn't that noticeable on most holes.
