From what I heard, the valley 9 is the one that won't be coming back.

Ha! That's funny. I almost thought you wrote that someone was actually opening a golf course in SoCal. I'd better read that again, I obviously missed something there.

Tucked into my recent review of Eaton Canyon was the news that they were considering closing the course or turning it into a park. Turns out it was true — LA County discussed the idea of handing it over to Pasadena and Pasadena only had interest in it as a park vs. the course.

Well, the County is going to retain ownership and Eaton Canyon will continue as a golf course. There were the usual comments about making improvements, but we'll see what actually happens.

You can read the story I stumbled on in the Pasadena edition of the Mountain View News:
nullhttp://mtnviewsnews.com/v12/htm/n24/pasadena.htm

So, while this is not a case of reopening, there is something to be said about a course not going away. The course has interesting topography, decent facilities, and is not a bad place to play. With a little attention to rounding up the conditions as well as some effort to improve the aesthetics of the place, it could be a gem.

That said, I'd put this in the win column for the local golfing community.

Wow, I missed this thread until now. Awesome news!

Hollis, you're right they had previously announced they'd preserve Mountain and Lake nines, but this article from the Press-Enterprise makes it sound like now they've decided to ditch the Lake nine and keep Mountain-Valley, which is my favorite combination at the course.

https://www.pe.com/2018/06/20/golf-on-way-back-to-moreno-valley-ranch-a long-with-417-apartments-and-a-restaurant/

That article also has an album of 23 photos showing great progress already made in some spots, while lots of work remains to be done in others. This is fantastic news to me, though, because I stopped in a few months ago and it looked like no progress was being made.

When's opening day? I gotta be there!

I'm not sure what happened to the original post and thread title here, but can someone fix it? It was announcing the amazing news that Moreno Valley Ranch got approval to go ahead with the new plan to reopen 18 holes, hopefully by the end of 2018.

QUOTED  Wow, I missed this thread until now. Awesome news!

Me too - but why would I check out a thread titled 321?!?

I agree, would be great to get the course back up and running. Lake vs. Valley is a "six of one, half-dozen of the other" decision. Each has a couple really nice holes, each has it's issues - Valley has the best upside re: overall play but it is also the most susceptible to water drainage issues (it's been completely flooded out at least once and nearly so a second time).

Look forward to checking it out when they get it open.

I think it's time for someone to school Lary1 on how to use the 'EDIT' function. Moderators? Bueller? Anyone?
