Over the last year, I’ve played a ton of golf at Sunken Gardens. This is where I got my first eagle. We’ve been playing an early morning round once a week, and recently we’ve played with just 2 irons and a putter.
It isn’t a hard course, but it is pretty well maintained and it’s nice to be able to get even a short 9 in before work. The greens are very slow in the mornings and the course is very slow (lots of beginners) in the afternoon. The driving range is not very nice, but the practice putting green is pretty good. All in all, it is about what you’d expect from a city-run 9 hole course.

I decided not to send my golf clubs with the rest of our stuff in the moving van so I’d be able to get a last round or two in before we drive out to Denver in a few weeks. I hopped in the car this morning and headed to Sunken Gardens to play my Thur…
Twenty-seven years at Lockheed … Sunken Gardens was a household word to Lockheed workers.
There are many many fine Golf courses in Santa Clara and Monterey Counties … but there is one little “jewel” of a course that we played every Saturday morning … tee-off by 6:30 … coffee in the club house by 9:30 and home by 10am!!
In comparison, 18 holes at any of the courses meant an entire day … not too popular to the wives.
Sunken Gardens became a tradition … and I am sure it remains that way !!
