Whether you are looking for a break from meetings in the East Bay area or a family outing, Concord has two great golf courses to chooses from to play a round of golf. Diablo Creek is a beautiful course where you can enjoy lush, manicured greens (they have their own well!) along a public 18-hole course, where you’ll be challenged by long fairways and water hazards. The course also features a sports bar and grill where you can grab a cold beverage or a bit to eat. Buchanan Fields is the perfect course for fans of a quicker game of a public nine-hole course. The shorter layout offers three sets of tee boxes for a fun-for-all-levels golfing experience while still giving more advanced players an opportunity to practice their swing.
The Diablo Creek Golf Course is a top quality public golf course that features 18 well-maintained, challenging holes. If you want reasonable green fees, decent fairways, and a solid golf course, you should tee up at Diablo Creek.
Diablo Creek Golf Course offers some long, straight fairways, so it is a great course for beginners to learn on and still offers a challenge for veterans who might have a hooking or slicing problem. The course doesn’t offer a lot of shade, so be sure to pick an early morning or evening tee time, as it can get very hot very quickly.
