Played Los Robles Greens on Monday, January 21 on MLK day. Our 4some had a 9:30 tee time. For a holiday, the pace of play was great, just over 4 hours. We waited only a few times. Overall this course is in very good winter conditions. The course itself is a nice mix of holes that will challenge you if you can't hit it straight. There are a number of tee shots that are somewhat narrow, and many strategically placed trees will block your approach shots if you're not in the correct position. The variety of holes on this course makes it quite fun to play.

For the middle of winter, the course is in very nice shape. Tee boxes are fine. The fairways are quite green and provide very nice lies almost anywhere in the fairway. The rough along the fairways is about 1 - 2 inches and not very penal. The greenside rough is not too deep and nice to hit from. I was in 2 greenside bunkers. They were filled with very soft sand and were a pleasure to hit from. The greens were on the fast side and rolled quite nicely. They were also a bit soft from the recent rains, and held shots well. I highly recommend playing here at this time.

Played Elkins Ranch on Monday 12/17 with a 7:30am tee time. A bit chilly early, but a comfortable 60 degrees for much of the round. Good pace of play, after we played through a slow threesome, at 3 hrs. 40 minutes. I haven't played this course for a few years. For a muni it has an interesting layout. Mostly flat, but has several elevation changes and some uphill holes. It winds through a rural area that is quiet and peaceful. The course is a bit more challenging than your typical city owned course, with mounded areas, and numerous uphill, downhill, and side hill lies in play. This is a fun course.

The greens are the highlight of the course, currently. They are running medium fast, and are smooth. The greens have plenty of slopes and challenging breaks for the average golfer. But they are in great shape. The greenside bunkers have plenty of firmly packed sand. Nice to hit from. The fairways are in full winter condition. They are very thin, with bare areas and not very green. They look like they haven't been watered much at all. They are playable, but not in the best shape. The rough off the fairways and near the greens have local wild grasses that are a bear to hit out of. If you don't nip the ball cleanly on initial contact, the grass will grab your club and stop it dead. Personally, I HATE this type of grass. For the $26 walking senior rate, it was worth it. But due to the current conditions, I will not be taking the 50 minute drive out here to play again until spring, when the fairways green up and thicken.

Played Rustic on Monday, 12/3 at noon as a foursome. The senior walking rate was $15. What a great deal that is. Temps were in the mid to upper 60's; just right for me. It was a bit windy, off and on. Later in the day, the wind picked up somewhat. Not nearly as windy as it can be at Rustic. To the course. I was a little bit disappointed by the fairway conditions, based on the two previous reviews. The fairways, although quite playable, were not very green. Winter conditions have set in. They were quite firm with good roll out. If you are in the fairway after a drive, you generally had a decent lie to hit from. I was in two greenside bunkers. One of them had deep, soft sand. The other had thinner, firm sand. Both were fine to hit from. The rough surrounding the greens is pristine. It is deep green, about 1 - 2 inches in length, and a pleasure to hit from. This is the best of any course I've played in the area. The greens were very fast, especially downhill. You MUST be below the hole to have any chance to score here. I hit several approach shots that I thought were perfect. I landed the ball short of the hole with plenty of height, only to watch the ball slowly, and painfully, roll and roll and roll. With all the slopes on these greens, that sometimes meant rolling off the green into a swale, very frustrating. This course always beats me up around the greens.

Played the Champions Course on Monday 11/26/18 as a twosome. Teed off at 9:30am. Pace of play was a leisurely 3.5 hours. It was a pleasantly cool day in the low to upper 60's, with a constant light wind around 10 mph, with occasional gusts a little higher than that. Into the wind, your shots were definitely affected, but it wasn't too bad. I had never played this course until today. I was hoping for very nice conditions. Although it was pretty good, the overall course was good, but not great. Tee boxes were fine. The fairways were mostly green, with some thin and bare spots around. The coverage was good, but I was hoping for more lush conditions.

The rough was patchy. Some areas were thick and lush at about 1 - 2 inches. Other areas were hard pan and bare. Most of the green surrounds were fairly lush, and mostly good to hit from. I was in 2 greenside bunkers and 1 fairway bunker. The sand is more dirt like, firm but reasonable to hit from. I had no trouble splashing out onto the green. The greens were firm and medium fast. Downhill they were very fast. The hard greens meant few pitch marks from balls landing on the greens and it was difficult to hold the green on your approach shot unless you hit it high with a good amount of spin. We ended up hitting approach shots short and letting them run up on the greens so they wouldn't end up at the back or even off the back.

This is a fairly challenging course. Most of the tee shots play to comfortably wide fairways. The greater difficulty for me was the approach shots. Many holes are heavily bunkered, with sloping and elevated greens. Depending on pin placement, 3 putts were definitely in the picture. I enjoyed the round today, but it's not my favorite course in the Riverside county area.

Teed off at 8am Monday 11/19 as a foursome. Weather was perfect. It started out a little chilly but ended up in the high 60's to low 70's. Our foursome finished in 4 hours. Pace of play was fine. I played here about a month ago. Back then, the fairways were very green and lush and the greens were fairly smooth. The high winds and very low humidity over the past couple of weeks has taken its' toll on the course. Right now it's in fair to average condition.

The Tee boxes are a bit chewed up, but you can usually find a decent teeing spot. The fairways are OK, but not very green and not well padded. They are quite firm with some bad spots scattered about. Though if you're in the fairway your lie will usually be decent. The grass surrounding the greens is hard to play from. It will grab your club and stop it, giving you a poor shot result, if you don't clip the ball just right. I ended up putting a lot more from the fringe because I could get a more consistent result than with my wedge.


I was not in any sand traps. But they looked fine. The greens are very poor. In addition to being quite slow, several greens are missing grass, and are so bumpy you could lose your line or speed. The greens are the worst part of the course. They weren't terrible, but were more challenging than they needed to be due to the bumpiness. I like the layout here and elevation changes. It's a fun course to play. but right now it's just in fair condition. But with the inexpensive green fee it is still a good value.

Played here Wednesday 9/12 with an 8:30am tee time. Pace of play was a bit slow with several slow foursomes in front of us. It took us 4 hours 40 minutes to complete the round. But it didn't seem that long. The weather was perfect: High 70's with a little breeze. I really like this course. It has a lot of variety, with some interesting holes. The overall course is in very good shape. Tee boxes are fine. The fairways are mostly lush, with some areas that are thin or somewhat bare. But, for the most part, if you are in the fairway you will have a very good lie, with plenty of cushion under your ball. The rough is spotty on the fringes of the fairways. Some areas are quite penal, with others being not penal at all. I was in two greenside bunkers. They had nicely raked, firmly packed sand. They were easy to hit from. The greens were running medium fast, and were very smooth. They were great. They're going to be punching the greens next Monday and Tuesday, so you'll only have a few more days to enjoy the current conditions. I highly recommend playing here before next Monday.

Played Balboa at 6am on 7/30. My partner and I breezed through in 3 hours, walking. Overall the course is in decent muni shape. Clearly, they have been watering the course quite a bit to combat the heat. The tee boxes were fine. Fairways are a mixture of nice grass, hard pan, and clumpy or bare areas. But, for the most part, if you were in the fairway, you had a decent lie. Not a great cushion under your ball, but enough grass for a good strike. With all the watering they're doing, the rough around the fairways is quite lush. Normally, the rough around the course is not too much different than the fairways. But right now the rough is 1 to 3 inches, and is a bit difficult to hit from in many areas. This is what rough should be. But it has not been the norm at this course, until now. The two greenside bunkers I was in had very good, firm sand. Very nice to hit from. The greens were very receptive to approach shots. They were quite soft and ran medium speed, with little to no bumpiness. For the $20 senior walking rate this is a good deal.

Played Olivas on Thursday mid-morning 7/26 to escape the heat in the SFV. The weather was great. The morning clouds never cleared, making for a pleasant - although a little humid - golf experience. I haven't played here in about 8 months. What a treat it was to play. Our group kept remarking all day how fabulous the fairways were. These are the most lush, beautiful fairways I've played all year (10 out of 10). Everything about this course is in great condition. Greens were medium speed and held shots well. The only thing that gave me some trouble was the tight lies just off the greens. You had to be very careful not to dig your leading edge into the turf as it would stop your club abruptly. Other than that, I have no issues. This is a must play course right now. Not only for the conditions and weather, but it is a very fun course as well.

Played here 7/20/18, Friday morning at 9am. The weather was perfect, in the low 70's with a mostly gentle breeze. The course is in very nice shape. Fairways are great. Nice cushion under your ball. They are a little firm, but great to hit from. Tee boxes were mostly level. The rough could be less than one inch or around 2 inches, depending on where you ended up. But nothing too penal. The one greenside bunker I was in had plenty of firm sand. Getting out was not a problem at all. The greens were medium speed, rolled well and were receptive to well struck shots. I really enjoy this course. It is in fine shape. I highly recommend it.

Played ANGC Monday (7/16/18) at 6:30am as a threesome. Pace of play was excellent at 3 hrs. 20 minutes. Overall, the course is in very nice shape. The fairways are firm, but have excellent coverage. They are nice to play from. Tee boxes were fine, with the exception of hole 17. The tee box had been aerated. So it was covered in dirt/grass plugs everywhere. The greens were smooth and held shots pretty well. My only complaint is that they were on the slow side. But they held their line well. I was in two greenside bunkers. One had plenty of firm sand. It was good to hit from. The other had 1" of firm sand over hard dirt. Not good to hit from. I got the Monday/Tuesday senior rate of $65. Along with a gift card I had ($30), it only cost me $35 with cart. That is a great rate. I do think the rack rate of $85 is a bit high for this course. But that, of course, is only my opinion. ANGC is in good shape to play right now. I recommend it.

Walked on as a single and teed off with a twosome at 7:20am Friday 5/4. Finished the round in 3 hrs. 45 minutes, with very little waiting on the group in front of us. Overall, the course is playable. The fairways are aren't lush by any means, but they are fine to hit from. The rough is not penal and is spotty; ranging from 1/2 inch to 2 inches. Tee boxes are a bit chewed up, but you can usually find a decent spot to tee up. I was in one greenside bunker. The sand was plentiful and firm. No trouble to hit from. The big disappointment is the greens. They punched and sanded the greens about 3.5 weeks ago. But the greens were PAINFULLY slow and quite bumpy. It took me nearly the entire round to finally hit the ball hard enough to get it to the hole. I hit several putts that were tracking toward the middle only to be bounced offline and slowed down by the many bumps on every green. I would wait another 2 weeks for the greens to properly heal if you want to play this course and be able to putt well.

Played MPCC on Friday, 4/28/18 with an 8:30am tee time. Pace of play was good at 4 hours for the first 18 holes. We played 27 that day, covering all three nines. The best part of the course right now is the greens. They were fast and rolled smoothly, even though they look strange with a few different colored grasses. The big thing right now is the fairways. They were all verticut to de-thatch about 2 weeks ago. Right now they are thin, yellowish and quite sandy. I was disappointed with them. The pro shop told us they should grow back in nicely in another two to three weeks. Although they are playable, I would rate them a 4 out of 10 at the present moment. The bunkers were filled with a lot of sand but were consistently damp and heavy. A number of the tee boxes were closed and several different tees were clumped together. It was still enjoyable to play, but I would wait a couple of weeks if you want normal MPCC conditions.
