Ancil Hoffman is in good shape, the greens roll like a private course and yet I played today for $26.00 (walking). It's not perfect, they could use some new sand in the bunkers and there was a lot of ground under repair but it is...More

Ancil Hoffman is jewel and is ideally located along the American River parkway. It offers very competitive slopes with length and lots of strategic trees to contend with. It's beautiful and usually very well maintained. Wait for the surprise on the tee at 16.

This gold course is near my home in Carmichael. It is an excellent course and fun to play although I haven't played there for years.

A cool day with blue skies and very few people on the course. This is a peaceful place as there is no traffic around it. The trees have matured nicely and the course is well maintained.

Free to park, inexpensive to play, and a very reasonably priced menu at their diner. And on you way out of the park, visit Effie Yaw Nature Center.

Love this golf course and the staff is great too. You will really enjoy the deer and the fowl that are frequent visitors. The course is maintained nicely and they have a good pro shop. There is a cafe grill on site too.

Great public course if you can hit the ball straight on command. Lots of blind shots. Greens and bunkers are usually in great shape. Not as much fun if the course is wet.
