Pros: This course is awesome! Im not pro and I love it. It makes you play golf!!! Many challenging holes but plenty of easy pars and some easy birdies as well if you play within yourself. Most people I konw that didnt like the 1st time loved as time went on and they learned how to play the course . The new course needs pics up all the pics are of the old course which was bland. the new one has epic shots and views!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cons: Its new and needs time to develop but with time will be the best course in norcal. Poison oak and heavy ground cover at times of the year are the only real complaint
Other Thoughts: Must have Frank cook you a meal why your there you wont regret it.

Pros: The new layout of the Finnon Lake course is amazing. Not one hole is the same if you have played it previously. It went from par 54 last weekend to a new and improved par 63?? Many more elevations changes and a much more difficult course.

Just follow the orange flags all day and you'll find your way around. First tee is now mid-dam. For more info look at the other thoughts section.

Camping there is well worth the $13 a night.

Cons: The second tee is a brutal way to get your round started.
Other Thoughts: From Craig Getty..."The Finnon Lake re-design is about 95% done. Tees are all there however some still need a little more work, but playable. Baskets are all moved. Renumbering of the baskets has NOT been done yet so don't go by the numbers yet. Hopefully that will get fixed this weekend. Also still some more clearing and clean up needs to be done which will come in time. I'll give some instuction to help you from getting lost. Hole 1 you now throw from mid dam to the old 17 pin under the the big oak.Then hike up the hill to the top where you will see tee 2. This is a hugh right to left down hill shot - Don't play to the practice basket the correct basket is yellow and to the left of the practice basket. Hole 3 tees from the end of the dam and is a long tunnel shot back up the hill. The 2 big pines at the top of the fairway is a mando between them and the basket is about thirty feet past the trees over the hill. You can't see the basket till you are over the hill. After playing 3 walk up the gully on the left side of the "getto fort thingy" and you will see tee 4 to your left marked with old beer cans and stones. This hole looks easier then it is.Throw well or land in hell. After 4 walk to your left and tee 5 is about 100ft up the trail to the left. Another big righty downhill shot. The basket is on a little hill by the road. After 5 walk to the left towards the old bathrooms - tee 6 is above the old bathrooms and the pin is old 13 position - Hole 7 tee is just beyond pin 6 and fairly straight forward. Hole 8 tee is just up the road aliittle fron pin 7 and fairly staight forward as well - Big crush across the gully. After 8 walk up the road about 120ft and tee 9 will be to your right. Hole 9 plays to old basket 10 - Yes another big righty downhill shot. After playing 9 walk towards the bathrooms and you will see tee 10 between 2 big digger pines on the side of the road. Pretty staight forward hole. As you walk up the fairway you will see tee 11 to your right. 11 plays to old pin 9 - A lefty loving hole. After 11 keep walking towards the dam and you will see tee 12 which play back up toward the hill. You can't see the basket from the tee so just throw it as far as you can towards the opening in the trees then you will see it up the hill. After 12 walk to the right along the dirt road for about 150ft and you will see tee 13. You can see the basket from the tee on this one. After playing 13 walk up the road about 200ft and you will see tee 14 on the right. You can see the basket down in the trees. After playing 14 walk to the right and tee 15 is down about 100ft on the right. Just play up the fairway and you will see the basket on your second shot. tee 16 is to the left of pin 15. Hole 16 just play across to the hill then you will see the basket on the next hill over. The barbed wire fence is OB. After 16 walk across the road and up the hill slightly to find tee 17. Hole 17 plays staight across then up the hill to old pin 2. After 17 walk to the left up the hill by the big oak you will see tee 18 this is a little righty hyzer shot down the hill. So far we are guessing this course at about a par 63."
