I know that Oceanside is not everyone's cup of tea, but I really enjoy playing this course. It's fun, some interesting holes, not redundant, doesn't force you to do anything you can not do. The only holes I'm not a big fan of are #15 & #16, because from the blue tees (Which I play) they are just too long for me now. The other 16 holes are fine, just these two.

The greens were far and away the best part of the course. Rolled true, faster than expected, and very receptive to well struck shots. Bunkers were good, not great. Fairways had some bare spots, but were generally very good. Very little rough, only a few feet adjacent to the fairways which was not good, and once you left the rough, God only knows where your ball will end up, rolling forever on the dirt/gravel.

No problem getting out first this morning. Teed off at 6:15am, and my bride and I really humped it because we were told the men's club was going off he back at 7:30am, allowing us only a little more than an hour to walk the front. (We made it in one hour three minutes and the men's club was teeing off early ! WTF. However when they saw us walking up, they apologized and invited us to go ahead. Thank you Men's Club !

Great day ! Perfect weather. Other than having to play so quickly on the front, a very enjoyable round of golf
6:00am tee time on Monday. Arrived at 5:30am - what a zoo ! People EVERYWHERE ! Waited a few minutes after they opened the door to the Pro Shop, then waited to check in. It was 5:57 before we finally paid and I asked if they were running late. I was told, no they're on time ???? So asked "Does that mean we can walk to the tee and hit off? " No response. I think the guy got the message because he then called our name a few minutes later as 3rd off, so we actually only teed off about 15 minutes late.

The greens were the best part of the course. Rolled well, very soft and receptive, but too slow for my taste. Fairways were not good. Lots of areas which were very thin/sparse. Bunkers were very wet, but playable.

Despite all the people, who actually began teeing off at 5:30, we finished in under 4 hours, which surprised me. Not good for a 6am tee time, but still better than I expected. And for $16.50 hard to complain too much
I actually had intended to play Chino Creek, but the last review indicated the greens on Butterfield were nice, so switched. Good decision as the greens were in fact very nice and rolled well. I expected the fairways to be horrible, but while there are certainly bare areas, for the most part they aren't all that bad. Rough was a 50/50 deal, sometimes decent, sometimes not so good. Both bunkers I found were well manicured with enough sand.

Perhaps because I kinda know what to expect when I play here, I am rarely disappointed. This is just old style, solid, basic, inexpensive golf with no frills. (Like I grew up playing) So long as you're not expected too much, there is plenty to enjoy playing the El Prado courses. The staff is always great and I never seem to encounter any problems getting out early.
First off at 6:06am. Just light enough to see. Obviously being off first, no issues with pace of play. The first thing I noticed was how wet the course was, particularly many of the greenside bunkers which were in many cases, half full of water, and the remainder of the sand almost like mud or where the sand was thin, rock hard. Fairways were green and lush, with numerous roped off areas where they had apparently over watered? The rough in spots was like U S Open rough, while in other spots at least reasonable. Very easy to lose a ball in the heavy rough.

Staff was great, very accommodating. For the first time ever I played the blue tees, rather than the blacks. On most of the holes I did not find the course too different, but on holes #2, #5, #9, & #17, it made a world of difference for this senior golfer. (I could now actually reach the greens in regulation !)

Enjoyed my round here. Course is always a challenge, and has a number of really fun holes and the great views are an added bonus
First off as a single at 6:16am. I enjoy playing Tustin Ranch, but I always encounter an abnormally high amount of maintenance to deal with. While I'm used to it and expect it, it none the less can be some what distracting. (At Coto I know all the maintenance crew and have an understanding with them)

Overall the course is in good, not great shape. Considering the bunkers were redone not all that long ago, I thought they were much too compacted. Greens rolled well, but were too slow for my taste. Fairways were very soft and did not provide much roll. (Or maybe it just feels that way because my drives are so short now?)

Other than the heavy maintenance, which I expect, my other complaint is there are too many carts on path holes on this course. Additionally this is a rather pricey place to play, so perhaps my expectations are higher than normal ?
First off again Sunday morning. Even at 5:45am, lots of people waiting to play. (And it's only going to get worse as we continue to lose over 1 minute per day in sunlight)

Now that the greens on the South are recovering, seems like the fungus has spread to the North course. While still very puttable, you can see that unless they get a handle on this soon, I foresee problems. The rest of the course is actually is very nice condition. They are scheduled to punch/sand the greens beginning 8/17/18, so maybe that will help?
Played Saturday morning off about 20 minutes prior to sunrise. Despite the darkness, there were still a number of golfers waiting to go. The only positive was maintenance was already out so did not have to "battle" the mowers or cup changers.

Still have a temporary green on #2, but they have finally opened #5. The rest of the greens seem to be recovering nicely. Fairways, rough, tee boxes and bunkers in particular are all in good shape.
After reading Grantar2's novel, it dawned on me that I had not played Anaheim Hills for quite a while, so thought I'd give it a try. I was fortunate enough to get out early so no issues with pace of play. While this has never been one of my favorite courses, it has a number of interesting holes and is a nice change of pace. I used to walk this course, but having a foot injury, it was nice to take a cart. (Which I think might be required?)

How can I add anything to the prior review? Grantar2 covered everything! My expectations were not high given that review, but I did not find the greens as bad as expected. ( I made some putts, so when that happens, the greens are never bad ! )

Enjoyed the round and promised myself it would not be so long before I return again.
Second group off at 6:15am. Our threesome behind a twosome, so no issues with pace of play until we caught a "back-nine" twosome on #16. Still able to finish in just a tick over three hours.

The greens were so wet and soft, EVERYONE, including my bride was able to back up shots! The greens were so wet, it was a real challenge chipping because it was hard to determine if the ball would bite or release. We even left foot prints on the greens and none of us are particularly big people. Fairways were for the most part good, but there were numerous bare areas. Bunkers were OK, but soaked from the over watering.

Really enjoy Marshall Canyon. While not the most difficult course, the holes are interesting, and not redundant. Plus the greens are such fun to putt. The abundance of wildlife and great views is just a bonus and for $15.75, a fantastic value !
After playing golf in the Midwest during the past week, (Neb, Iowa & Ill) it is so nice to leave the high temperatures, stifling humidity, and never ending threat of thunderstorms, and return to the climate which caused me to leave Chicago in the first place almost 50 years ago.

Couldn't have selected a better place to "come home too" as the Goose is always a joy to play. Conditions were overall excellent, with perhaps the greens a touch less perfect than usual, but still very nice and super receptive to well struck shots. Green fairways with plenty of grass, so appears the recent heat was handled fairly well. The one bunker I found was well maintained with lots of sand. Really, no issues anywhere.

The only complaint I ever have with the Goose is their policy to not allow singles/twosomes out early. (maintenance ? ) Otherwise this is for me the "Jewel" of the Inland Empire.
First time off at 5:52am Monday. Thanks to the starter, we were able to play as a twosome, so no issues as to pace of play. I had concerns about running into back nine play, but didn't catch anyone until #17, so we played in just a tick under three hours walking, a nice easy pace.

This course gets a lot of bad reviews, but I must admit that the greens were very good (those which had been mowed), the fairways were green and lush, although there were numerous bare patches, but generally nothing which became an issue. The rough went from bare to thin to US Open thick, depending upon where the ball ended up. Bunkers had plenty of sand and most were raked.

Say what you will about RSJ, but for $27 to play in South Orange County, it's a steal. Perfect morning, warm, overcast, with a nice breeze. The only annoyance was the number of geese - they were everywhere ! (And they left "gifts" wherever they went)
Amazing that the South course is adjacent to the North course and the conditions of the two course could not be more different. Greens on the South are fair at best, thin, patchy, bare spots, etc. In fact holes #2 and #5 are temporary greens and in truth there should be at least two others used as temps. Many of the tee boxes are thin and bare are well. I elevation on the South is lower than the North course, but hard to accept that would account for the difference in their condition.

Fairways are still good and all the bunkers are in great shape. Hoping that once this heat wave passes, conditions will return to normal ?
