Played here yesterday with my buddy Ken. Teed of at 1:00 and finished by 5:30 so pace was nice. The course is kind of a mixed bag. The greens are recovering nicely for the punching and roll pretty smooth and with okay pace. The recent rains made them a little softer than normal which makes them bumpy at times. The tee boxes were in great shape with no complaints. The fairways were lush at times however spotty with different grasses and the rough is hit or miss. There are large patches of crab grass throughout so lies can be challenging. Was in one bunker and it played well with ample sand. The views are great and the rate to walk is very reasonable. I always recommend playing here however the pace can be a issue at times.
I played here for the first time yesterday. It was a beautiful day on the course with old friends. The golf was a different story....the only part of our experience that was above a fair rating was the pace of play. We finished in 4 hours with no waiting at all. I think the course design does have some potential however the conditions here are just bad. The tees were inconsistent and patchy, the fairways were the same, and the greens were soft and okay speed but they have many different grasses mixed in them. Not sure I would play here again but if I did I would just enjoy the company I was with and not focus only the golf aspect. For $39 with a cart there are many other courses to consider that do a better job keeping their course in shape.
we played here yesterday teeing off at 7:30 and finishing our round at 11:30. I really like the variety of holes at this course. Short, long, risk, reward, doglegs and lots of trees. The greens are recovering nicely from being punch and should be in excellent shape in another week. There were a few all marks left unrepaired and a few patchy area throughout but a solid 7 out of 10 in most areas. Carts have GPS and they no longer allow fivesomes so this place is worth your time now. I hope it keeps going in this direction.
Played here yesterday for the first time in a long time. With many courses punching their greens right now I noticed on GK that Lakewood did theirs in early March so I thought they should be healed by now. I was right. The greens were in great shape and so is the rest of the course. Sure there are many courses more pleasing to the eye with more attention to details out there but for for $30 to walk this place is a good deal and this course plays long especially the par threes at 180, 230, 225, and 180 from the blues! Overall I would rate the tees,fairways,rough,and bunkers 6 out of 10 and the greens a solid 8..........
Played here yesterday at 7:30 am finishing in 4.5 hours with no waiting. We played the Ridge-Canyon combo and had a blast. I agree with the last few reviews regarding the conditions however the fairways right now are not as plush and green as reported. They were rather brown and a little patchy but were no problem to hit off. They are getting ready to punch the fairways and greens in a week so this is why the fairways were looking like this. Give the course until mid April to recover and I will bet it rates at least a 8 out of 10 in every category. Always a fun place to play and if you get a chance to eat on the patio the food and views are spectacular!!
Played here yesterday at 8:00am. There is never a boring story to tell when you play Rustic. The winds can blow, the greens are always tough, every hole makes you think, and you have got to hit good crisp shots to score well. I can always recommend playing here due to all the factors listed above. CONDITIONS: The course is green due to all the rains. The tee boxes were level with a few divots that needed repairs. The bunkers were definitely a little hard due to the winds and rain but played okay from the bottom of them. Rustic has many waste bunkers in play and they are mostly hard pan so staying out of them is recommended. I was a little disappointed in the fairways and rough. The rough was patchy throughout and the fairways were as well. The lies in the fairways were often a mixed bag of thin grass, unrepaired divots, and some lush areas but in no way are perfect. I love this course but feel that if it is going to be consistently rated as one of the best courses to play in California, the conditions need to be stepped up a bit.
Played here on 3-13-2017 with 24 others in a fun outing. The weather was perfect, the greens were great and so were the tee boxes with level lies and few divots and ball marks. The fairways were green and semi-lush but watch out when you miss one. It took our group well over 5.5 hours to finish and everyone said the same thing......If you miss the fairway or green you almost had to step on your ball to find it. Not fun and definitely not good for fast play. I heard they have a women's tournament coming so maybe they are growing the rough long and plan to cut it just before the tournaments starts but leaving like it is surely makes for a long day. I highly recommend both courses here but you might want to wait until they trim that 5" stuff or plan on a long frustrating round of hide and seek.
We played TPC for $60 on Monday 3/6/17 at a SCGA outing with a 10:00 shotgun. This is why I love the Internet and sites like GK! I love playing new courses, hard to get on courses, and courses in great condition. Years ago, I use to play Cypress Golf Course in Santa Anita for $50 as a special treat. I loved playing there and so did Tiger Woods (who holds the record at 61). Now there are a number of courses available to play at that same rate or better. TPC is a great track with all kinds of variety and at $60 I will play it anytime. Conditions are not perfect due to the rains but they are better than any muni which charges the same rates. For instance, I walked Milles Square at $52 last week and it does not compare to the experience we had at TPC at Valencia. The greens were fantastic, the tees were too, and the fairways were good but lots of marked area as GUR due to the rains. The course was fantastic compared to most muni's and many others you can play. Highly recommended!
I haven't played here in quite a while so thought it was time. Got a 9:15 tee time on Sunday 2/26/17 for $52 with a cart so jumped on it. With rain in the forecast again we decided to walk the course to stay warm. It rained off and on all day but we were still able to Finnish our round and I only 4.25 hours. The course is in better than average shape right now highlighted by real nice smooth greens. the fairways were mostly lush but soggy and the traps played great. Tee boxes were level and the service was great too. For a muni this really is a fun track and can play long from the back tees. This course may not have the personality of places like Rustic or Black Gold but still can be a fun round with great conditions right now.
Played here again yesterday at 7:20 with 3 friends. Although we had a fivesome(?) behind us that I believe are locals and REAL FAST players who needed to wait on us to finish on most holes, by the time we finished our round it was only 4 hours long. I honestly think it is very difficult for a foursome to finish much faster than this due to the pace of the greens. (unless you are giving 4 footers). THANK YOU GK for the $49 coupon to play this great course. Normally we wouldn't play here very often due to the higher rates but with the coupon we have already played here twice this month and are planning another soon. Everything here conditions wise were 7 out of ten and the greens were even higher. I think this is the best value for your money in SoCal. It may not have the Ocean Views like Pelican Hill, Trump National, or Monarch Beach but you are not paying over $200 a round either and the conditions, service, and layout are nearly the same! Give BG a try and use the GK coupon.
Played here early on Presidents' Day with three friends for $62 with carts. I usually like to walk Rio but decided to ride with my group. Rio has always been my "go to" course due to conditions, proximity, and pace. I think this is a $40-50 dollar course all day but anything above that is a stretch.
Now on the conditions....the greens are still the best part and are always in great shape. The fairways are usually green but thin and this time they were a little patchy due to all the rains. The rough was patchy as well and the sand traps were pretty beat up and still had water in many. The pace of play was great at 4 hours and we always enjoy coming back here. The front nine always seems to play 3 shots tougher than the back but both nines are fun. Once Rio dries up it should get back in prime shape but I would give it some time.
Played here yesterday with 3 others. I used the GK coupon and paid $49 and the 3 others I was with paid the $55 senior rate. I have to say Black Gold is nearing it's prime right now....Everything here is in great shape. Not immaculate but way above average and for the deal we given by GK this place might be the best value around. The course moved along great at 4.5 hours and the cart girl was extremely nice and came by a couple of times. I can't give any aspect of the course a 10 out of 10 rating during this time of year but they are doing a great job with their upkeep right now. I definitely recommend playing here!
