Played Thursday 10/18. It was a grueling POP of slightly over 5 hours. Other than that the course was in good condition. The greens were medium fast and recovered well from aeration.

The Players side was busy as they are aerating the Classic Course this week.

Teed off Wednesday morning around 10:30 and finished in about 4.5 hours. The greens have recovered pretty good after aerating two weeks ago. The greens rolled mostly smooth with medium/fast pace and held shots. The fairways were mostly good with some thin spots. The rough was good around the greens and mostly good along the fairways with a few thin/bare spots. The bunkers were mostly good. I was in 3 greenside bunkers of which two were good and one the sand was thin and a bit compacted. The tee boxes were fair to good mostly due to mild unlevelness and a few were a bit chewed up where the the tee markers had been placed. Overall the conditions were pretty good. The staff was friendly.

Teed off at about 1:10pm with 3 other guys. Very slow POP on the day, just over 5 hours, finishing just before a nice sunset.

My last round here was just before the punching. Course overall is again in very good condition, with the greens pretty much healed from their punching in early September, showing only minor signs in the grass patterns. Greens were very consistent, lush, and a bit soft. They held shots well, putted mostly smooth at medium-speed. Practice green was smoother and faster than the greens out on the course.

Most, but not quite all holes, had all sets of tees recently scalped and I assume re-seeded. There was no issue with footing, as they were not taken down to bare sand, but were brown, with mostly dormant grass. Firm footing here.

Fairways were very lush and green, not cut as short as I'd like but provided decent roll. No major wet spots in front/aprons of the greens. Usually good lies, but the bermuda was somewhat grabby due to its length. Rough was choppy in all places, and as will happen here, the ball may end up falling down into the deeper rough, making for challenging shots.

Was only in one bunker, sand was medium-fluff and slightly damp - odd for so late in the day. Fresh un-raked footprints near my ball, but was spared the extra insult.

Saw the cart girl on #6, but not again. No marshals. Might explain the slow overall play. The Players lounge is open again, and there was a private party on the patio with the fires going after the round. I look forward to playing here again soon, likely next week. Recommended.

Played Bayonet today on a beautiful cool but sunny day. I teed off at 9:20 and was never held up in fact we played in 3hr 40 min. On to the course, the course was in fantastic shape. The fairways were great condition and the speed of the greens were very quick. Lots of break on the greens. Everything about the course was in top shape, and I highly recommend either course if your ever in the area.

An update to my Oct 11th review.

Greens - healed, in good condition.

Fairways - better than average condition!

Traps - plenty of sand and raked.

Good condition for a Muni!

Participated in a 2 day tournament at Boulder Creek the weekend of 10/13. I play in this tournament every year and so look forward to it. For one, this tournament is a lot of fun and 2, BC is always a fun venue. This year was no exception. Wonderful golf course. Played a practice round on Friday and they gave us the resident rate. Nice guys!

There are 3 nines here and all in in great condition. A desert course with desert bushes and hard pan lining the fairways. Go in there and you can still play your shot unless your ball rolls under a bush. The layout is fairly flat. Some doglegs and some minor elevations but for the most is straight away. All of the fairways have been over seeded so in the fairway, you will have a great lie. The rough is not too thick and is playable. Oddly enough, the rough around the greens was very thick. Dormant Bermuda but still playable. Bunkers were also in great condition.

The greens were not very fast but rolled great. They looked much faster as they were cut pretty low. I have seen them much faster but I am thinking they are still in recovery from aeration.

I love playing here. The weather in October is great. The views of the surrounding hills/mountains are worth a couple of pictures. Great practice area with a huge, grass driving range. They also have a nice bar/restaurant and the food is very tasty. What’s not to like? Already looking forward to next year’s tournament!

Played this am in about 4:15 pace. Course is in good overall shape. Just like most courses in San Diego it’s not lush but decent. Tee boxes were mostly good, didn’t have a hard time finding a place for the tee but some were a little uneven. Fairways are green with brown patches. Not a real issue if you keep it in the fairway, but if you miss the fairway a little expect a hard pan lie. Greenside bunkers were good but fairway bunkers were hard. Greens were the best part of the course. Back 9 greens were better then front but overall they are in good shape with medium speed. Course is walkable and they offer a different green fees for walking and riding. I will play the course again and if you can find a good deal I would suggest giving it a try!

Had a late tee time yesterday, ca. 12:50 pm. Big mistake. Started on time. But, I knew it was a bad sign when we waited for 10 minutes on the #2 tee box, a par 4. Pace was reduced to 3 holes an hour. Course was in good shape, but we had no rhythm as long waits in between shots. I lost focus. Group behind us was impatient and on our heels, but nothing we could do about it. By the #9 tee box, nearly 3 hours later, we had enough of the crawl, so all 4 of us left the course. We were not going to finish before dark. Got to start in the morning for a tolerable pace.

Played here this morning with JohnnyGK and Nickesquire. We started around 7:20 and enjoyed a nice relax pace after letting a couple twosomes through. At the moment, both courses are open, though North is shutting down for its overseed after this weekend. South just came out of the overseed and that's why we opted to play it.

As Nick noted, the course was in pretty good overall condition and definitely better than when I was here last summer. It's still a bit rough around the edges and it may never be completely pristine like some courses out here, but the fun/challenging layout and unique desert setting help balance that out. The tee boxes were mostly quite good with just a few a little thin on the overseed coming through. Same with the fairways. There were a few small sandy/dead spots here and here, but mostly nice lies throughout. The rough mostly okay. There was some obvious storm/flood damage on the front nine where some mud and water washed through lower-lying parts of the course, but nothing too bad. The greens were good with the bermuda still holding strong as the rye starts to come in. A little slow, but should smooth out as the season progresses. I was only in one fairway bunker and it was fine. All bunkers seemed a bit hit or miss from what I observed, though.

Though this place is a little rougher around the edges than some courses in the valley, I would still recommend either TL course. I've always said that these are two of the more underrated designs. I also contend that South is way underrated compared to North, which typically gets more acclaim. Both offer a unique and mostly secluded setting with the rugged desert all around, and the layouts are very interesting, challenging and fun. Definitely far from your cookie-cutter "Palm Springs resort/community" courses, and I like that. Seems the management has this place headed back in the right direction and I'm excited to see it. Thanks to the staff for having us out today!

Rode the Golds (6401/71.0/130) early morning with Sixpez and JohnnyGK. We let a couple of 2somes play through and enjoyed a relaxed slightly less than 4H round. Thanks to Terra Lago for having us out! The weather was clear, calm and in the 70's.

This Schmidt/Curley layout is challenging yet fun. Many undulations on the greens and large swells around the green complexes make for challenging chipping. There are a few problem areas but overall the course is in good condition just out of over seeding. They have taken out many of the dead bushes around the fairways that used to be unplayable since i last played here 2 1/2 years ago. Now, much of that area is dirt/sand with a few bushes. Good change for POP.

The tees were lush and almost none needed divot repair. Only #17 was in poor shape.

The over seeded fairways were lush, very nice to play on. #8 had some bad areas, but the rest were lush with excellent lies.

The rough around the fairways was a combination of lush/thin, very playable with good coverage.

The sand traps were very hit and miss. A few were very nice, well maintained with good quality sand. Most were mediocre. A few were hard pan.

The over seeded greens look nice. They were smooth, firm and putted medium speed.

This course would be difficult to walk as numerous tees are a long ways from the last green. GPS on the carts. Good all grass driving range with a couple of practice holes is a +. The customer service was excellent from everyone encountered. I like the layout, fun course. Recommended.

Played today after noon. Another grueling round over 5 hours. 2 groups before us with slow play throughout the front 9. The back 9, pace improved. It appears that one group quit after the front 9.

They are preparing to aerate next week so some of the tee boxes and fairways had already been tilled.

The greens rolled fast but were in good shape. The bunkers appeared to have been completed and contained fluffy sand. Staff always friendly.

Note driving range will be closed from next week to early November for reseeding.

Played today on the Member for a Day promo. Pace of play was right on 3 H. No one in front of me on the front 9. Starting on ten they had a 12 man member tourney, but was able to work my way through them very easily. Had never played here, so was very interested in doing so. Course is right off 57 highway (between 10 and 210) as well as Via Verde exit from the 10. Course has a nice putting green located right next to the 1st tee, as well as the driving range next to 1st tee as well (very convenient). Course is a mixture of downhill and uphill holes, due to the course sitting in a little valley. Nice set of par 3's (one fairly flat, one straight uphill and 2 downhill) that are of good length and challenging for all handicaps (nothing outrageous). Bunkers were great (only in one) with nice soft/playable sand. The rough is thick and penal outside of the fairways, which are very generous/wide. The par 4's and par 5's are a good mixture in length, with many of the holes playing all uphill (like # 18, 496 all uphill). They had just punched the greens about 10-12 days ago and some had healed nicely, while others still had aeration remnants. So putting and chipping where slow. Greens are very large and look to be very challenging when in top shape. Fairways (nice and green) needed cutting, so very little roll out during the round, but the lies were fine. The tee boxes had been "scalped" and were brown, but did not effect teeing the ball up in any way (they were also sanding some of them today). There were two holes that had water and from the tee box they looked huge (like infinity pools) and gave the impression the carry was longer than it appeared (very interesting). Also, on # 9 right after coming off 8 green, there is a staircase (45 steps) to # 9 green, if you are walking and don't want to walk around the corner (I think I would walk around). Customer service was excellent at all levels. If you ever have the opportunity to play here? Take advantage of it. The next promo offer that comes my way, I will play again, so I can hopefully see the course in top shape.
