Even worse, there is concrete on many fairways, some of which are 400ft holes from elevated tees, so the disc is skipping hard off that concrete. I will never play this course again, and the only thing keeping it from getting an F is the fact that it has decent baskets.
However, I live in Reno, and the nearest course is 45 min away, so I'd be happy to have this course in my area . But against Stafford, Dela, Golden Gate, and all the Tahoe courses, this one is a D.
Yeah, I definitely don't think Cypress is terrific, I think I would put it in the C or C- range.
Next time you're in the area, do go check out the Oaks course, it's about 2 miles away from the Cypress course and is definitely worth playing, in my opinion.
And re-reading your description of why Stafford appealed to you, I agree that you would really dig Napa. It's somewhat of a 'Stafford Jr.'.. my friend and I shot some video out there back in 2006:
