It is a military course, but civilians can get on base to play either as a guest or other programs with the base. The courses greens are uneven with speed of the greens and the fairways a little rough, but overall a very good track and enjoyable to play. Lots of wildlife and from the tips is a good test of golf. You will need all your thoughts and shots.

Recce Point is a super bargain California golf course. It has a nice layout and pretty views of the Sierra Butts. The course is built on open land that is not surrounded by housing or other buildings. When it was a 9 hole course, it was one of my favorite 9 hole courses because it played like an 18 hole course. The addition of the 9 new holes is just more of a good thing. When I played this course last summer, the conditions were both hot and dry, yet the course was in remarkably good shape. The pro asked if he could pair up with me as it was a slow day, accordingly the pace of play was great. This course has a bit of everthing, narrow fairways, wide open fairways, water, elevated greens, trees, bunkers, and opps, a rattle snake or two, be careful on the back 9. This is certainly a nice course that would rank very well with most nice muni-courses and was a great value for $20 including the cart. I try to play this course whenever I am in the area.

"Prarie" course with quiet, wildlife and some difficulty. Greens are only fair, and fairways are a bit rough. Nice place for a solitary round.
