Played the North on Saturday 4/14. 7:45 am tee time. Los Serranos is in our rotation and we are playing there regularly. We love it and just don’t get tired of either course. As I have in the years past, bought the Players card and although there are many benefits, just not as good as previous years. Still a good deal.

Pace of play 4:24. Slow for us and although we waited on a few holes, our group needs to pick it up a bit. The course is in really nice condition. Kikuyu fairways were cut down and we got lots of roll out. Really nice lies. The rough was thicker than we’ve seen in the past but very lush. Sand traps are in great condition. As the previous reviewer indicated, they are replacing the two deep bunkers in front of #16 green and replacing them with “normal” bunkers. Good move though. That hole needs greenside bunkers.

Greens are in good shape. A little bumpy and rolled true but expecting them to be Los Serranos fast. Not there yet but soon I hope.

It’s always a good day out at Los Serranos. Great guys in the club house and Richard the starter, has a great sense of humor. After, stop in and have lunch in the restaurant. All of the servers are great and so is the food.
Was invited by fellow GK’er, Orangegolfer to play in a scramble tournament. Jumped on it as I have never played AV and live about 5 minutes away. On a very warm afternoon, we were off at around 11:15.

The course was in good condition but dry. The kikuyu fairways were cut down real low so you got great lies. The rough was lush and thick but fair. The bunkers were great. Soft, white sand and easy to get out of.

The greens were still in aeration recovery so really can’t rate.

AV is a very nice golf course. With the exception of one or two holes, it is definitely a fader’s course as many holes off of the tee moved from left to right. Many homes line the fairways but the fairways were generous so no balls in their backyards! Would love to play here again one day with the greens in better conditions.
Played the Goose on 4/4 with two other friends getting the first twilight rate tee time, $33 to walk. Looked up the last time I was here and noticed it had been over 7 years since I was here last. Couldn’t figure out why it had been so long but didn't notice many changes to the course except the trees are much larger now! We knew they had just aerated the greens about a week ago but with small holes. Regardless, out we went as a threesome on a warm and windy afternoon.

It's in really nice condition. Fairways were in great shape. There are some tight lies out there but that’s nothing new here. There are always tight lies at the Goose. Tee boxes were fine but very hard. Broke many tees. The rough was great. Wasn’t in any bunkers but they looked great as well.

As for the greens, we were told the greens were about 80% recovering from aeration. Well, maybe not 80%. I would say about 60%. I would give it another couple of weeks and they should be ok.

Pace of play was great. We walked the course in 3 ½ hours. Was a bit bothered when we made the turn, as a new two some coming out of nowhere showed up on #10 to be ahead of us. Where did they come from? What was disappointing was it was clearly the first time playing for one of them. We waited on them for the first 4 holes on the back but they finally got it going.

A very nice afternoon at a very nice golf course. I can see why they have received all those awards.
Played Canyon Lakes as part of an SCGA event. Wasn’t sure we were going to play because of the rain but I called the course and he said it was still on. So got in the car and just made it for the scheduled 10:00 am tee time. Went to the range and while warming up, the head pro Pat Kemball came and introduced himself. He said most of the group went out much earlier and many others didn’t bother to come out because of the possibility of rain. He said my only option was to go solo. The course was pretty open so I wouldn't have to wait much if at all. Regardless, it was very nice of Mr. Kemball to come out and say hello. Very classy.

So, out I went not knowing where to hit as this was my first time. There are quite a few blind shots out there but with me and my sky caddie, we did well. The course is in really good shape. Fairways had excellent coverage. There were some wet spots out there because of the recent rain but there was still good roll out. Tee boxes were equally as nice. The rough was thick; rye grass and a bit sticky. Bunkers were in excellent condition. Clearly someone had raked them to look nice.

Greens were excellent. Mr. Kemball mentioned they would be around a 10 or 11. He was right. They rolled great.

I really had fun out there and found the course thoroughly enjoyable. It’s not a long course. Even from blacks it’s only around 6000 yards (Mr. Kemball said it will play like 6300 yards). It is a hilly course, tricky and is really tight!!! Homes come right up to the fairway and on some holes and I felt like I was playing in their backyards. Target golf and you can keep the driver in the bag on many holes.

A lot of doglegs with blind shots make it challenging. As the previous reviewer sixpez mentions, you need to play this course a couple of times to get the lay of the land. Also, #17 par 3 is really neat. From the blacks it plays about 185 but it has to be about 150 foot drop straight down. Really cool!

I guess it is now open to the public on certain days/times. Give it a go.
Was invited out to play The Crossings at the invitation of leef2020. Got a great deal and a big thanks to Lee for the invitation. We were joined by a single who happened to be another GK’er, dubwiser (Zach). This is the second time in the last couple of weeks that I unexpectedly met up with another GK’er. Clearly, there are a lot of GK members out there. Great to hook up with dubwiser. nice guy!

This course is so challenging yet it is so much fun to play. Some of the fairways are generous but you need to keep it in play. Hilly course that winds through the hills but hitting fairways is a must. Fairways were winter hard but still in ok shape all things considered. We got lots of roll out. The rough was ragged but not terrible. I was only in one bunker and it was in great shape.

Greens were really nice. About as good as any course I have played on in some time. Medium fast but always held the line. Too bad there are scheduled for an early aeration because I love these greens right now.

Got a bite to eat and a couple of beers after the round. Really good food and service is exceptional. Despite the cool weather and long round (5 hours), I had a great day.
Played BG on 2/8 with a 12:10 tee time. Love playing here and was really looking forward to playing as I don’t play here a lot. Beautiful day however and got out pretty much on time. POP was just short of 5 hours. That was on us and not because of the crowd. Spent some time looking for balls which was is always a problem here because of some blind shots and a lot of brush off of the fairways. Got to play faster however and fortunately, no one waited on us.

Regardless, the course is very good condition right now. Fairways are nice with great lies. The rough is a bit thick but not too difficult to get out of. Wasn’t in any bunkers but they appeared to be soft and in good condition.

Greens were in great shape. Rolled very nicely. They slowed as the sun went down and got cooler but they are still very nice

I always have a good time playing here and this day was no exception. Great customer service with very nice course conditions. What’s not to like?? Looking forward to getting out there again.
Played Santa Anita with SR129 on 2/6 on a beautiful February day. This has always been one of my favorite muni’s so I wanted to see if there were any improvements since the last time I was here about 3 months ago. As a twosome we were joined by 2 singles. Nice guys and made the long day enjoyable. I say long day because it was. We teed off around 10:15 and finished after 3:00. Just about 5 hours which is crazy for a weekday. Then again, we followed the slowest 4 some known to mankind!

Regardless, I was impressed. Fairways were in good shape. Some bare spots out there but I feel that’s part of winter. I really didn’t have a bad lie. There really isn’t much rough to speak of so there was either grass or hard pan. Bunkers were in great condition as I was in a few. Sadly though, many of the bunkers were left unraked. Ugh!

The greens were bumpy but rolled much better than the last time I was here. Pretty nice actually.

Except for the long round, it was a very enjoyable day. Construction still happening in the club house and in the restaurant. Had to use the port a potty outside but fully expect SA will have a very nice look when complete. Also, the course is coming back nicely. Giving SA a thumbs up on their improvements and looking forward to coming back.
Was looking forward to playing Boundary Oaks while visiting up here in the Bay Area but noticed there wasn’t an early tee time available on line so took a chance and drove out to play as a single. Interesting coincidence but while I was on the putting green, got to meet another GK’er, BGarcelon who noticed my GK bag tag. Since I was a single, Brandon offered me to join his 7:40 group if someone from his foursome didn’t show. His 4 some was intact so I wasn’t able to join them but it was still very nice of Brandon to offer. Still was able to get out as a single thanks to the nice work of the guys in the club house. Always great customer service here.

BO is in pretty good condition. The fairways had great coverage. The rough was thick and green. Bunkers are in great shape. Soft, fluffy sand that could easily become a fired egg because they real soft.

Greens were disappointing however as they just put a thin layer of sand on them. Didn’t affect the roll much but was a bit messy. Needed the towel to clean off the sand on everything after each hole. I asked a maintenance guy why the sand and he said it was a top dressing needed as they just verticut the greens. The sand is used to fill in all of the holes. Learned something new today about greens.

Always enjoy playing Boundary. A challenging course, particularly from the blues and is a must play if you’re in the area.
Came up to visit the in laws in No. Cal and was able to squeeze in a couple of rounds. On a very cool morning, hooked up with a very good friend and as a twosome and played Deer Ridge on Tuesday 1/30. Had a 7:38 tee time using Golf Now $24. Second off for the day following a 5 some who got off much earlier. Caught the 5 some on the back nine but the wait wasn’t too bad. They offered to let us play through which was nice but we were just fine. Pace of play, about 3.5 hours. Can’t remember playing here before and as I drove up, the course looked really nice. Check in was simple enough. Paid and went right to the tee.

Overall, the course is in real nice shape. Over seeding has taken hold and the fairways had great coverage. The only exception was hole #10 which is not good shape at all. My friend says it’s been that way for a long time, something having to do with drainage and the environmentally sensitive areas. Some of the tee boxes are a bit ragged but the rough was thick, lush and wasn’t difficult to get out of. Bunkers were wet and hard. Disappointing actually as they looked great from a distance.

Greens rolled very nicely. Some were a bit hard but they still held a good shot. A lot of undulations, were tricky and challenging. I found some very hard to read.

DR is not a long course. We played from the blues at about 5800, par 71. The front nine fairways are fairly wide winding through some nice homes. Back nine a bit tighter.

We enjoyed playing here and would recommend.
Almost forgot to review this course. Stopped off to play G.O. on 1/23 while on the way driving to meet up with GK Guru’s at Indian Wells. Had checked and noticed it had been over 10 years since I last played here. This course was part of our rotation at one time but times have changed. Walked up at noon and got right out as a single, $20 walking rate and finished in about 2.5 hours.

The course is very average. I remember this course with very lush fairways, thick rough and fantastic greens. Fairways were in ok condition knowing this is winter time. A lot of bare spots out there but overall good. The rough is pretty beat up with dormant grass, dirt and hard pan. Bunkers were in very nice condition, good, fluffy sand. The greens were in great shape. Rolled true and a bit fast actually.

I forgot how long it played from the blues – over 6800. Then again, I am older as well. I have never played well here and for some reason it has always kicked my rear. Some narrow fairways with small greens make it challenging. Nice layout though and is a fun course to play and for the price, its worth coming out here. Hoping one day we see the General of previous years!
Second round of the day with the GK Guru’s at Indian Wells and now on the Player’s Course. Didn’t have the eye appeal like the Celebrity course did when standing on the 1st tee as the rough was dormant brown. More folks playing on this course and pace of play slowed down a bit on the back. Still under 4.5 hours and finished just before dark.

Fairways still in great shape. Same with the tee boxes. Greens were not real fast but rolled very true and held good shots. A couple of greens were near water and you had to clear out a putting path through the duck poop but overall fantastic. The one bunker I was in was hard pan under a thin soft layer on top. Learned that the hard way as I skulled a bunker shot across the green.

Regardless, this is a wonderful golf course and IMO, more challenging than the Celebrity. Great layout with some blind shots, dog legs and water coming into play on a couple of holes . Also some great desert views worth taking pictures of. Great customer service – we were individually thanked for playing by I believe Michael Tebbett (forgot his name as he introduced himself) on hole #3. Very classy! Also, a big thank you to Johnny GK for setting up this great day.
A must play if you’re in the Palm Springs area.
Played The Celebrity course as part of a GK Guru outing with The Boss, Johnny, Sixpez and kg1791. 7:30 tee time was pushed back a bit because of frost so we got off about 15-20 minutes late. First group off however, on pretty cold morning but it eventually turned out to be a beautiful day.

I share the words of previous reviewer mpisarski01 who wrote “HOLY SMOKES, what a nice course.” Let’s be clear, I don’t play courses like this every day and to be able to play a course like this is awesome. You go to the first tee and all you see is a sea of perfect, green fairway surrounded by beautiful flowers, stunning, huge palm trees and beautiful plants. From that point going forward, it was the same scene on pretty much every hole!

Fairways were in perfect shape. I felt guilty taking a divot! Rough was lush and just right. I was only in one bunker and it was a bit hard underneath the inch of soft sand (the course’s only blemish IMO). Tee boxes were very nice. Greens were in great shape. Not fast but rolled very true and held good shots.

I had a great time out here. Beautiful facility, great staff both in the clubhouse and in the restaurant. Make it a point to get our here and play if you’re in the area. You will thoroughly enjoy the day.
