Played early on Saturday. POP 3 hours 45 minutes, walking. We had at least two open holes behind us though when we reached the 17th tee, so the later groups did not get to enjoy the outstanding pace of play.

I was pleasantly surprised by the conditions, especially the greens. They were much faster than usual, rolling really well. Otherwise the conditions were decent. The fairways were pretty good if tightly mowed. There are quite a few kikuyu spots where it seemed bare because the grass was cut low. I did not seen any true bare spots though. The rough was hit or miss. Cut lower than it was last winter. The one fairway bunker I was in was very firm. No complaints from those in the greenside bunkers.

Good facilities including coffee shop and bar. I'll be back.

Played in a tourney today, scheduled for 10:00 am. Got off about a half hour late and played in 5 hours. Both were expected.

Really enjoyed the course today. Lush fairways, rough was a factor, and the green side bunkers were nice. They are working on some of the fairway bunkers which are GUR. Sure there were some bare areas and a few tee boxes were not level. Meanwhile the greens were fantastic. Quick and true. As good as poa gets. The scores in my club were pretty high I think because the greens were so fast. We had two four putt greens in my foursome. I was worried the course greens would not live up to the perfect practice greens but they were right there with them.

Sorry about going on about the greens but to some extent I rate a course based on them.

The cart lady was diligent, they have a well stocked snack stand at a convenient junction, and a barbecue at the turn. There is a lot to like at ElDo right now.

Stopped here to wait out the traffic after working in the Inland Empire yesterday morning. Didn't work too well because we played in 3.5 hours and I ended up hitting the freeway in the rush hour peak. Can't beat the pace of play though. $41 to ride on a hot afternoon.

The course was in pretty good shape. The Classic course is quite lush on the front nine and decent but not as lush on the back nine. The rough was up and we had to spend some time looking for balls, including one I could not find on No. 9. The only negatives to the round were the greens being slower than normal, less than medium speed, and no sand in one bunker I was in. They had a top layer of sand on some greens. I could not tell if it was spot repair work or if the sand had been assimilated into the greens in some places. Either way, it did not help the speed problem.

The service was good throughout. I'll be back.

Know Before You Go. Didn't and paid for it. Next time I'll at least read the last review! Greens were brutally disgracefull. 2 and 3 or 4 (don't recall which) had some fungus going on with sanded areas. All the greens were shaggy and slow except a couple on the back nine. None were like the practice green which was pretty good. Bumps were consistent throughout the course.

The fairways varied from dried hard pan old school drought Alondra and lush kikuyu. The rough was up in spots.

Overall, the course is a disgrace to the County golf system.

With regard to service, I can't get past the bizarre sequence of groups, single, single, woman giving playing lesson to six and ten year old girls, threesome, twosome, twosome.... The fact we played in 4.5 hours on Sunday mid morning did not make me feel any better. We were in the group behind the playing lesson. It could not get over fast enough.

I'm told the course will not be on our rotation again, but played it in a tourney on Sunday, August 6. On the plus side, the pace of play was decent, about 4:30.

The holes on the clubhouse side of the street are decently lush. The fairways were lush. The sand was good in both bunkers I was in. There was gnarly rough in places and we spent a lot of time looking for balls not that far off the fairway. The course is less lush on the driving range side of the street. The golf carts are amazingly durable considering all the gopher mounds in the rough in places. About as rough a ride as I can remember.

The greens were pretty good. A bit too bumpy, and a bit too soft (probably connected). Decent speed but not as nice or as fast as the practice green.

No drink cart. Nice bar and the food looked better than average. They were advertising on the 9th tee a Hot Dog of the Month Special - Bacon wrapped hot dog with barbecue sauce, cheese and green onions. Really?

Its golf but I am in no hurry to get back.

Played Friday and Sunday, July 28 and 30, both relatively early rounds. Pace of play was excellent on Friday (3:45) and great on Sunday (3:20). The service is excellent in the pro shop. It is good in the coffee shop as well although the spot is popular with local residents so it can take a while to get food.

The course was in good shape. The water features contain water again. The rough is thick generally and nasty in some places. The fairways were shaggy and quite wet so there was not as much roll as you would expect. The heat was the likely reason. The greens were good. They were running at medium speed with some bumps because they were soft making footprints a factor. The sand was just okay because there were quite a few rocks present. The tee boxes had some crowning.

I like the course layout and enjoy it. I recommend it although word to the wise - use bug spray. The mosquitoes killed us on Friday.

Played here for the first time in a tournament on Sunday, July 9. I had avoided the course the last few years because of reviews on pace of play. Those reviews proved true as it was a solid 5.5 hour round on a hot day. Not as hot as inland though as one could tell we were fairly close to the ocean.

The course layout was kind of confusing in that the separation between it and the sister course was not that clear at times. At one point, we had to tell a group that jumped in front of us (the group playing in front stopped at the snack stand in the middle of the back nine) that they were on the wrong course. I was surprised that there were no out of bounds delineations between the courses.

The course had decent conditions. The rough was up so much that we had to search for balls often. From a comment from another player, I gathered that was unusual. I had a couple of really tough lies in the rough. The fairways and sand traps were fine. The greens were of decent speed (faster than the practice green) but had some bumps that kept it interesting.

Nice facilities, good customer service throughout. Saw the cart ladies multiple times. $4.50 for an 805 after the round. I might be back but it is not a sure thing.

Played Sunday in the last leg of a two day tourney. I liked this course better than the Vineyard. It looks newer. It plays higher in elevation and there are some great views of the surrounding area.

The conditions were very nice. The City gross championship is here next weekend and the rough was definitely higher than Vineyard (where they are playing the Senior and Net championships). The greens were a lot faster. They were said to be 11.5 on the stimp. The greens are relatively undulating and any faster would have been tough. I thought they ran true and nice at the present speed.

The only negative was the thin layer of sand in the bunkers. I was in two. I was lucky the ball hit the lip on one when I tried to blast out and hit the ball on the bounce. I liked they had a snack house at the turn.

The layout was more visually intimidating than Vineyard with more water. Once again, course knowledge would have been nice.

Played the two courses for the first time this last weekend, with Vineyard being the first on Saturday. I was in a tournament but my interaction with the staff was positive. They were cheerful and efficient. The marshals were all over the tournament site but I did not hear any grumping about negative interactions. Pace of play was about 4:45 which was decent for an event like this.

I liked the course. I thought it was in pretty good shape. Decently lush fairway and rough. I was not in any bunkers. The greens were a little shaggy. I heard 10.5 on the stimp but I thought they were a little slower. They were okay, but not as fast as I had expected from other reviews.

It was a course in which some course experience would have been handy. Quite a few blind tee shots. I do not know if it would have helped my score but it would have been some comfort. I would play here again.

I should add that quite a few of us stayed at the adjacent Marriott Residence Inn. It is right on the 13th hole and one could walk to the clubhouse. Decent rate at a great location for the golf.

Played today with a 6:30 am tee time. They let us out early so I walked straight from the starter's booth to the tee. Played in about 4 hours. The course is in good shape. Overall, great lies in the fairways. The rough was generally cut down where it came into play so there was not a problem finding balls. Pretty lush though. The tees were okay. The grass was a little high for me but otherwise fine. The greens looked good but were running medium at best. They were shaggy apparently because they did not break as much as I have seen in the past. Good experience (except for the 9 on the first hole).

Played early on Saturday, May 6. Great pace of play at 3:45. The course was in decent shape. The fairways gave a decent playing surface. The rough was inconsistent with many bare lies. I was not in any sand so cannot comment on it. The tee boxes were level if somewhat chewed up. The greens were mostly recovered from aeration but were still a little shaggy and slower than usual. They also still had some bumps but generally rolled okay. Got rained on a little and the moisture made a course that plays long in general play longer today. Good time though and recommended.

Played in a men's club tourney on Saturday, April 22. Course was in pretty good conditions. The greens were in outstanding condition likely because the aeration of the second half of the greens has been delayed twice now. The previously aerated sides have healed and the greens were pretty firm overall. I predict they will be finishing the aeration this week though.

The sand was deep and soft, the fairways are still pretty lush, the rough is hope and pray. The tee boxes are okay. It was not as clear as last week but still spectacular in terms of scenery.

The men's club is trying to crack down on pace of play so hopefully public play after the tourneys is not impacted as it has been in the past. There were a couple of very difficult pin positions (#5 and 12, par threes), though, that were not designed to speed play.
