played today and its a repeat of the what I have been saying about this Jewel in the I.E. Tee boxes looking nice and even, fairways nice and cut, bunkers ( the ones I was in ) had good sand in them and the greens were nicely cut and around 10 or 11 on the stimpmeter. Customer service attendant Bryan Swartz was fantastic. He greeted me and was very pleasant to talk too. I had a great day playing this wonderful course today.

played yesterday the 5th of Feb. Course is in fantastic shape right now. Tee boxes, fairways bunkers are all in great shape. The greens were hard and fast, really hard to get the ball to check up. As always the "practice facility " is one the best if NOT the best in the Inland Empire. Customer Service was great, all was great. One thing I hate to see is "Players" still disrespecting this great course by Driving their carts onto Par 3's. and Not fixing their Ball Marks on the greens #@#$#. Where ever you live in Southern Cal and have nevered played this fine course, this is definitely a must play.

Played today. Teed off early, the greens were bumpy and wet. Fairways were decent but still a little soggy in some places. They still haven't cleaned up some of the mess the Winds did on Wednesday. Branches and leaves throughout the course. Some Tee boxes were terrible, not cut and not flat. Check in was Slow and painful. Paying a Weekend rate you would think the treatment would be a bit better and personal, nope it wasn't. Get them in and get them out was their theme for the day. I know this sounds bad but I'm just calling it as I experience it. I know its not like this all the time but today was bad.

Last review written was back in June of 2019. Wow, I haven't played this course in a while due to the lack of maintenance being done to the course. Played Thursday the 30th of Jan and the greens were terrible. It seems the Course is NOT cutting their greens in the morning and I don't have to remind you that if you do not cut "Poa annua" greens, it gets really bumpy. Course is still being ran by a GM that is not on top of some issues that should be taking care of. Fairways were spotted, tee boxes not cut and the rough needs to be cut as well. The check in was good and quick and the practice putting greens were perfect, I just wish the Course had there greens just as nice.

Played today the 22nd of Jan. Last review was back on Dec 29th 2019. As shown in the pictures that is the way all fairways are, Dormant. The Brown thin fairways has clumps of grass throughout the course. If your playing ball down just hope your ball doesn't come to rest along side a patch of crab grass because that can cause some serious hurt to your wrist. Tee boxes were pretty much level, Sand bunkers had good sand in them and the greens were the best part of the course nice and pure, hard to read at times but nice. Customer Service at check in was friendly and good. The Restaurant at the course has good food and real good service (thank you Kathy).

Played yesterday 1-11-20 For the most part the tee boxes decent and somewhat level, the fairways are very thin lets the ball run a mile, some of the bunkers (the ones I was in) had a decent among of sand but there were other bunkers with very little sand. The Greens were very hard and solid made it hard to put your divot tool into the greens to fix any mark. Customer Service was quick, easy and friendly. We played 2 rounds. The morning round was a bit cold with No wind at all but the but the 2nd round around 1pm the Wind came in with a fury.

Played Yesterday early morning (it was cold). Fairways still a little damp from previous rains and the recent cold weather we have been having. It just seems that the fairways just do not want to dry up, we need Sun and lots of it. Ball rolling okay but still a little muddy in some places. . Greens were the best part of the Course but still a few bunkers without enough sand to have a decent out. Overall the Course was not that bad for the price we paid ($35 bucks).

Played New Years Day (morning). It was Cart Path Only (CPO) but players were diving their carts on the fairways anyway with the Marshal around and not saying anything to the players so we also went ahead and joined everyone else. Fairways still a little soggy in places, Greens were not was I expected, they were fast and bumpy and very moist due to the heavy rains past. Customer Service was fast and quick and only $45 bucks for a Online deal. Was a great way to start the New Year.

Whispering Lakes has always had the reputation of being a not very well kept up Course. It wasn't always like that. Back in the early 60"s this course (then called Ontario National) was a Premier Golf Course and would hold many major golf events. Some of the great players of that era (The PGA tour) would stop there and play like "Nicklaus, Palmer, Casper, Boros, Demeret and many great players of that era. In addition to that many of the old bands like "Duke Ellington, Sammy Davies jr. Wes Montgomery and countless others would preform there at their" Tiki Room lounge" or commonly known as "the Royal Tahitian" which you can see the remains of that Tike Room where the Cart Return area is today. But when the lower deserts golf and resorts like Palm Springs and there on started to evolve this Course (W. Lakes) would become neglected and soon after would just become another typical Municipal City golf course, controlled by the City of Ontario and then renamed "Whispering lakes in the early 90's. Soon after the City of Ontario almost demolished this course in favor of Condos but many of the locals fought this decision by the City and kept it but would NOT put any funds into the Courses condition and that is why this Course is in the Poor condition it is in today. Now the City soon after destroyed the #6 par 5 to a ugly looking par 4 by taking half that Par 5 #6 and making it a Soccer field. Much more to say about that but lets move on to the condition of the course today. As expected the fairways are still in very poor condition, bumpy and hard to find a decent flat lie after a good drive shot. The tee boxes are somewhat decent in some areas of the box but still needs much work but to my surprise just about all the bunkers had much sand in them from what I could see. The greens where the best part of the Course, well maintained and very fast which made my round more enjoyable. Pro Shop personal was quick and friendly. Being Christmas eve the Green fee rate was fair at $34 bucks to ride. This course being only 7 minutes from my house gets a fair amount of players but I truly believe that in the future this course will loose its battle of survival and be the sight for Condos one day because (financially) this Course is just barely hanging on just by a thread. In my area we have already lost "Empire Lakes", Mountain View and soon to lose "Paradise knolls" the only Course in the area is "Goose Creek" which the rates recently just went up.

Got out at 10:15 on the North Side yesterday. My buddy and I was suppose to play the South but we would of had two 5somes ahead of us. The North Side was empty so we went North. We didn't run into any other players until the 17th which was great having the course all to ourselves. Despite the cold weather we've been having the fairways were not that bad. Brown hard pan in many areas of the fairways but still a good lie in most places too. The bunkers we were in hardly had sand in them. Greens were rolling smooth and good despite the many Ball marks left by previous players that early morning. All around conditions were nice, really was a great day playing with one of Nam Vet Buddies too. Customer Service at check-in was very good and quick.

After playing the Valley side first and after a Frost Delay in the morning my buddie and I still had time to play the Palms Side for an additional 18 holes. Conditions were absolutely great. The Palms Side is much more friendlier that the Valley side. But not to be fooled by its beauty and Wider fairways the Course still has some bit. It was great playing these 2 Courses. Customer Service at check in was great and friendly.

Was scheduled to play the "Valley Side" in the early morning first but there was a Frost delay for both Courses (Palms Side) as well. Once they opened both Courses were opened I was excited to see that the condition of the Course was in Fantastic shape. Very Green fairways and Rough. The bunkers I was in had plenty of Sand. Greens were absolutely great, a little slow but great. FYI, the Cold weather in the desert is causing "Frost Delay" for some courses so check with your Pro shop attendant when making your tee time. We still had time to play an additional 18 holes so we jump to the "Palms" side after our first 18 on the Valley side. The Palms side is more friendlier than the Valley side.
