Played today using the GK $20 w/cart coupon. POP was a surprising 4.5 H that did not seem that way? Maybe we were having to much fun? From a visual standpoint, the course looks good. But, looks can be deceiving. Fairways are mixture of grass and browned out areas, but are very thin and that thinness, is not conducive to good lies. But they roll forever. Virtually no rough to speak of anywhere on the course. Bunkers looked good, but the sand was very thin and saw a lot of skulled shots, due to poor sand condition. Tee boxes all looked like they needed water, though they were level and tee friendly. The greens, were hard and thin. Many of them still showing signs of aeration, after many days since. They were a mixture of fast/slow and showed no consistency. I have always like this layout. But I am not a fan of the current conditions and hope they get better soon? Customer service was excellent at all levels.

Played today in a nice 3 H pace. Tee boxes have begun to go dormant (Bermuda grass) but they were all playable/clean. Fairways had good coverage (though they are going dormant as well in areas) and gave good roll and good lies all round. Bunkers were all very playable. Little to no rough, but enough OB and water to take care of that. Greens were great (but # 15 is a temp due to complete rebuild) and held shots, chipped/putted great and with speed. Customer service excellent at all levels.

Played today on the all day Vets special ($20 W - $35 w cart). Place was empty early and finished in 3 H. Tee boxes are all fine (though they do need leveling someday). Very little rough anywhere and what there is, is manageable. Fairways had decent coverage on the River 9 with good lies and roll. The Pine 9 was in much better shape, as it was greener and had better roll out and lies. Bunkers were all playable. Greens were very nice. Chipped/putted well with speed and bounce from incoming shots. Customer service was excellent at all levels

Unable to play early today, so took a chance on early twilight ($24 w cart). Things worked out in my favor. POP was 4 H. Course conditions were very nice, with the sun drying out the place. The fairways were nice and green with good lies and roll out, due to the dry conditions. Tee boxes were just fine. I found 2 bunkers and was even able to play out of them (that was a surprise) vs when playing early AM. Greens were OK putting (not all of them) as there is some sort of fungus on some of them (looks like they need to be sprayed with something to kill it ?) and it causes the ball to bump around when putting (not pleasurable). Customer service was excellent at all levels (had an issue with slow play and marshal took immediate and swift action - thanks Frank).

Played today. Left after the 13th hole. NRFPT (not ready for prime time), Pace of play is pathetic. Arrived at # 2 and had 2 groups waiting and when we teed off, 2 groups waiting behind us. And it did not get any better as we moved along (2:30 for 9). Too many walking 5's. Make 5's take carts, like Rio Hondo does. Fairways are dry, crusty, brown and almost totally devoid of grass. Not possible to get a good lie, but possible to get lots of roll, but who knows were it will end up. Several tee boxes were shaggy and in need of cutting (obviously letting grass grow) and almost covered your ball when placed on the tee. I will say the bunkers looked fine and I heard no complaints from anyone. Greens looked bad, but putted decently and were sneaky fast (go figure). But lots of golfers at this course, have no idea about fixing divots - NONE. Customer service was excellent. I had high hopes for this course when they made all the improvements. But they wasted their money in my opinion. This is one course that will not be played by me, anymore. Even for the price of $12 they charged me today, to walk. Don't waste your time, money or gas getting here.

Played today in 3 H. Fairways were damp when we started, but still gave good lies and roll and they got better after we made the turn. No issues with tees boxes. Really no rough to speak of, so not an issue. Bunkers were clean and playable and heard no complaints. Greens were very nice (mowed/cleaned in front of us) and chipped/putted great all round. Customer service great at all levels.

Played today in nice POP of 3 H. Course is green in the fairways, with good roll and fair amount of good lies (some thin areas will be found in a few fairways). Tee boxes are all clean and level for the most part. Very little rough, except around the greens and playable for the most part. Bunkers still need sand (come on City of Montebello, spend some $$$ PLEASE). Greens are in very nice shape and chip/putt nicely. Customer service excellent at all levels. I find this course more acceptable, then some in the area. Twilight starts at 10:30 AM (great idea).

Played today in 3.5 H. Course is in decent shape (IMO). Tee boxes were all clean and playable (would like to see them all redone someday). Fairways had decent coverage, but an occasional thin area or browned area are still present. Not in any bunkers (nice) and heard no complaints and they looked just fine. Very little if any rough at all. Greens were really very nice and chipped/putted very good. Customer service excellent at all levels. Done with the bathroom remodel, still working on new Pro shop and restaurant. Good value with LA senior card.

Played today in 3 H. They have redone all the cart paths (great). And they were working on leveling some of the tees today. Nice to see, that this old style course is getting some attention from the County. Long overdue. As they had just aerated at the beginning of the month, the greens were very wet, soft and bumpy, leaving foot prints and plugs (just like the previous reviews from Sept). So chipping/putting were a challenge. Tee markers were all placed at the front of the tees (that's OK, just means longer drives - LOL). No issues with any fairways, as they had roll and good lies, all round. Bunkers were wet from overnight watering. Rough was tall and deep outside of the fairways. Customer service excellent at all levels. I have always liked this course, with its variety of holes (especially the par 3's) and hope that work continues to make improvements going forward. Play it if you get the chance. Beautiful setting and especially at dawn. And the number of deer on the course, are fun to watch.

Played today in 3.5 H. Course is in great shape. Tee boxes excellent. Fairways had great lies, great roll and plenty wide enough to avoid going OB. Great to play a S CA course finally that provides roll out. Bunkers (in one) and not an issue. Rough is called "environmental area" and you can not enter. Even comes up on the GPS if you get too close. Greens were just great. Chipped/putted just fine all round. Customer service is excellent at this course. Highly recommended.

1st off today and POP was 2.5 H. (Went back out and played 9 more). Played Mountain/Desert. Started out cold, but warmed up nicely when we made the turn (so the ball was not carrying at all, early). Every tee box was level and clean, on both 9's. Mountain fairways were fine for lies, but little roll due to cold and wetness. The dampness made the rough hard to play out of on the Mountain 9. Bunkers were fine and no complaints (both 9's). Greens were great. Mowed, no divot marks and chipped and putted great all round (both on the Mountain and the Desert). Desert 9 fairways were a little long, due to recent overseeding and will be mowed shorter this week. So very little roll but provided great lies. Last time I played here, I played Valley/Mt and was happy to play the Desert this time. I am very impressed with the design they did on the Desert 9 after such destruction from the fires. This is a fun course to play, given that the 3 nines are (IMO) totally different, requiring many different shots, during the round. Customer service was excellent at all levels. If you plan to go and play early, be aware, that upon exiting Sand Canyon Rd, there is a huge backup from the light (lasting a few minutes) to the stop sign (maybe 200 yards), as commuters are taking a short cut through the hills. Once past the stop sign, maybe a 1/4 mile to the entrance. Don't want anyone to be late for their tee time, OK.

Played today. POP 3H. Course is holding its own. Tee boxes are fine. Fairways are green with good roll and decent lies (though you will find some thin lies on some). Rough around the greens, but not much elsewhere and manageable. Of course still very little sand in the bunkers (and City of Montebello too cheap to buy some). Greens are chipping/putting fine, with no issues. Customer service excellent at all levels (especially on Monday AM, Tues AM, Friday AM).
