I played yesterday joined by rudyclub. I used the birthday deal of $12 cart fee. The guys in the pro shop were so friendly and it was no problem that I had forgotten to bring the printed voucher with me. This was my third time playing here and it was, without any doubt, the best conditions I’ve ever seen here. The fairways were lush with hardly any brown spots. There were quite a few divots along the way but none that affected my lies. The tee boxes were not all level and had lots of divots but again, no problem. I was in two bunkers. One was very damp but both had plenty of sand. The greens were awesome. They were so soft that ball marks were really deep but it seemed the players before us did a good job of repairing theirs because I found very few other than my own to fix. The greens are challenging with some hard to see breaks and a good medium fast speed. This is such a fun course. It’s short but definitely challenging with its target style layout. That, combined with the beautiful scenery, has made Mt. Woodson a favorite. If it was closer I’d play it a lot more often. Highly recommended .

Played yesterday, 10-2-17, taking advantage of the birthday deal, which is only a $20 cart fee. The offer is good up to a week before or after your birthday. The gentleman in the pro shop was very friendly and gave me some range balls too. The range, unfortunately, was in the worst shape I’ve seen it. There were only 7 stalls open with very little grass from which to hit. I had a 9:40am tee time, was paired with two very nice ladies and we started right on time.

There are separate fleets of carts for members and the general public. Member carts have coolers and club/ball washers. The public’s carts have only the coolers. There are no ball washers on the course so I ended up wetting my towel in the cooler for cleaning.

The course conditions were pretty good. The fairways were equal parts brown and green, but full, cushioned coverage throughout. The greens were smooth and fast with fewer ball marks than I’d expect with how soft they were. The bunkers that I was in all had nice sand but a couple of them were very wet. The forward tee boxes were ok, some level, some not, but not too many divots.

This course is a lot of fun. There is so much variety of holes with doglegs, big elevation changes and a super fun par 3 with a bunker in the middle of the green. My one goal this round was to not let #9 beat me up. It did, just not as painfully as last time.
The front nine moved very quickly but the back was jammed up so we waited a lot. Still, we finished in just under 4 hours. I very much enjoy this course and definitely recommend it.

Played yesterday with acesfull and Teagal. Even though the course is only 10 minutes from home, it’s one of the few OC courses I just hadn’t gotten to yet. The white fences along the entrance road and the farmhouse looking clubhouse have a very charming (very Irvine-ish) look. There are two large putting greens by the range. The carts have dual USB ports, club and ball washer but unfortunately no GPS.

The front and back nines seem very different. Although almost the entire course plays relatively flat, the front is mostly wide fairways and the back has narrower holes, larger trees and hills on both sides giving it a more rustic feel. There are a couple of ravines to cross as well.

The tee boxes were a bit messy and not level. The fairways were really good, lush with only a faint dusting of brown. The greens were beautiful. They were smooth and really fast and very few mark. I was quite impressed.

I had so much fun. I absolutely will play here again when a good deal is available.

Played yesterday with iluv2golflady using a Group Golfer deal. Our tee time was 11am but the course was wide open so we went out at 10:30. Conditions overall were very good. The forward tee boxes were all level, with only two of them being more brown than green and there was very little divot damage. The fairways were great- lush and green. There were a couple of wet areas, but we found no thin spots or bad lies all day. The bunkers were in good shape. The sand was not very deep but it was soft, clean and well groomed. Unfortunately, I still couldn’t manage to easily get out of the three I was in..

The greens were the only iffy part. They were punched a few days ago. We were aware of it ahead of time, though, thanks to GK and the honest guy on the phone when I made the tee time. That being said, they really weren’t so bad. They were only slightly bumpy in some spots but surprisingly fast. They were very soft so ball marks were deep but with the course having been so empty before us, there were very few marks to fix other than our own.

I really like this course. It has such fun par 3s, especially #8 with the island green and #17 with the big drop to the green. It’s so nice when we don’t get cheated out of the elevation changes when playing forward tees. We finished in just under 4 hours. It was a great day and look forward to playing here again.

Played 9-9-17. This was my third time playing this course and it just gets higher on my favorites list each time.
Customer service was great from everyone- always friendly and so well organized. Other than being soggy from the morning rain, the fairways were lush and in really good shape. I was a bit disappointed that the usually beautiful fairway flower beds were bare, but I know they’ll be back in the spring. The sand in the zillions of bunkers wasn’t as deep as I’ve seen before but for me, that was a good thing. It was clean, soft and easy to get out of. The greens were a little slow but overall in good shape. The layout of the course is really fun. While still challenging, it is a very manageable length for me from the forward tees. I don’t think I would ever tire of playing here.
Thank you, Matt, Tim and Greg for a very fun round. And many thanks to Johnny and Indian Wells for the great day!

Costa Mesa was a great choice to play today – cool and breezy, local and inexpensive with a GN Hot deal + promo. I was paired with a nice twosome for a 1:53 p.m. tee time. We were behind a fivesome and a foursome so we got off to a painfully slow start but the marshall came by after a few holes and got things going a bit faster.

The course was in pretty good shape. The fairways and rough had a few scattered thin and bare spots but were mostly green and well cushioned. Some tee boxes were not very level, but most were just fine and had few divots. I was in two bunkers. They were more dirt than sand but it was soft and fluffy. The greens were not so good. On the front nine, they were firm and medium fast with the usual new and old ball marks. On the back nine, though, they were considerably softer with footprints and unrepaired ball marks everywhere.
The beverage cart came by 4 times. I was a bit disappointed when she said she was not allowed to sell me a cup of just ice. We finished in 4 hours. Always a fun course and I will definitely be back.

I played in the Guru outing on 8-9-17. I was determined to play here ever since seeing someone’s video of the ‘magic doors’ from last year’s outing. Everything about the day was just amazing. The clubhouse is the most impressive I’ve seen. I loved the huge atrium-like lobby with the creek running through it. Having my own locker with my name on it was pretty special.

As the others have said, the course conditions were just about perfect with the exception of the bunkers. I really enjoyed the layout with the views and variety of holes. The length from the forward tees was a tad long for me at 5500+ but with the help of our caddy, Dave, I did much better than I thought I would. This was my first experience playing with a caddy. I was pretty nervous about it at first but Dave was just great. Reading the distances and breaks was a huge help. Most shots I was ready and confident to hit, but many I wasn’t, and that’s when Dave’s advice and encouragement made all the difference.
I feel so lucky to have been able to play here. I can’t wait for next time!

Played with the Gurus on 8-8-17. It’s a nice no-frills course that was quite fun to play. The fairways and tees were all in great shape as were the greens, though they were slow. I was in a couple of bunkers and the sand was clean and white but really coarse. It felt kind of odd. I didn’t like having to carry the rake from the cart to the bunkers, though. I was too hot and tired for that much extra work. The ditch on the right side of all holes was pretty nasty if you went in. The rough was long enough to swallow the balls and with all the other debris down there it was just good motivation to try harder to hit straight!

Customer service was great. Everyone was very friendly at check in and they later came around the course offering us water and ice pops. Nice touch. This is a good course for a casual or ‘warm up’ round. I would consider playing it again when in the area.
Many thanks to Johnny and The Club at Sunrise for the fun afternoon.

I played on 8-8-17. It was my first time here. I hadn’t heard or read much about the courses beforehand. When I called to make my tee time, I asked which course had more trees, only thinking about being able to stay cool in the hot weather. The guy on the phone recommended the Lakes course, so I arrived planning to play that one. Check in was easy from bag drop to the pro shop. Apparently, there were very few players out that day but they were all on the Lakes course. After waiting at the first tee for about ten minutes, I decided to play the Desert course instead. When I got to the first tee there were two gentlemen there who immediately invited me to join them. They looked like a couple of interesting characters and I just had a feeling I’d have a fun time playing with them.

The course was in pretty good shape. The fairways were equally green and brown but had good cushioned coverage throughout and provided lots of roll. The tees were level with minimal divot damage. The first green was lightly sanded but all the others were just beautiful, smooth, with no ball marks to fix (how refreshing!) The rolled medium speed and held shots really well. The bunkers- gosh, there were a lot of them- were pretty bad, being hard with lots of stones and very little sand.

I enjoyed the layout a lot. The forward tees are just the right length for me at 5400 yds. There are some really fun par 3’s, #15 in particular, and several doglegs with the turn being tight and narrow just before the green. There are some elevated greens which were even more challenging when the wind picked up on the back nine.

We finished in just under 4 hours. We never saw anyone else on the course so it was a very fun and relaxing round. I would happily play here again and would like to try the Lakes course also.

Played yesterday with Robule and two of his buddies. The weather was a toasty 107 but I came better prepared for the heat than last time we played. Tee time was 9am-ish and from the beginning it was slow going with the twosome in front of us but got better on the back.

The course wasn’t as green as last time but overall still in really good shape. There were some thin/brown/bare patches in the fairways, rough and around some greens, but nothing that caused any bad lies. I spent a good part of the day playing in the sand. I lost count of how many bunkers, maybe 6 or 7… or 8? All but one of them had decent sand. The greens were a little bumpy and pretty slow.

I like this course a lot. It has some really fun holes. I had been looking forward to the par 3 #12, hoping the pin would be at the lower level back of the green this time. It was, and I’ll just say that it’s so much easier when it’s up front! I really want to play here again. I need to finish #18 without losing a ball in the creek below the green. Fun day!

Played today, 7-31-17. The weather was 98 and very humid. I went as a single and paired with a very nice father and son. I’ve played here a couple times before but it had been about 2 years. My first impression today was that it was the greenest I’ve ever seen it. The view of the course from the clubhouse, by the huge putting green, was just gorgeous.

Fairways were mostly green with just a bit of browning here and there. They were very short giving me some trouble with the tight lies but no bad lies all day. On much of the course there really wasn’t any rough to speak of, being cut about the same length as the fairways. There were a few areas closer to the greens were it was a little longer, maybe an inch and a half and very dense so the balls sat up nicely.

The greens were pretty nice. They were a bit soft, held shots well and rolled medium fast with just a few little bumps here and there. Of course there were plenty of ball marks…

The bunkers were so much better than last time I was here. They appear to all have new white sand. I was in only one, a fairway bunker. The sand was very thin, but no complaints- I still had a long way to go and I was able to get some good distance. The sand in the greenside bunkers looked deep and fluffy but many were wet in the middle.

There was a lot of GUR today, mostly affecting the tee boxes. Most were level, some a little chewed up. On #4, the whites were moved up to the red. On #10 the black and and blue tee boxes were closed and moved down to the lower level – about 130 and 122 yds. The bridge to the #16 tees was under repair with a very rocky, bumpy dirt path detour. The red tees on #16 were closed and moved back to the whites.

The beverage cart only came around once but there were six water stations on the course. I really like this course. There are so many super fun holes. Highly recommended.

Played 7-23-17 with iluv2golflady as the last stop on our little road trip. We picked this course strictly by location after getting some recommendations from fellow Gkr’s. Check in was a bit frustrating. We paid for the round using credit from GoPlay cards. It turned out that when GoPlay called the course to submit payment, they said it was for only one player. The girl in the pro shop said there wasn’t anything she could do about it even though we had our receipt showing confirmation numbers for two players. After some back and forth phone calls to GoPlay and the course manager who was not there that day, we got it straightened out. We then grabbed a quick lunch before playing. I did see a nice looking driving range, large putting green and bunker practice area.

From the first hole I had a feeling I would enjoy the course. There are lots of undulations in the fairways and those dips and mounds that I like so much hiding bunkers from view. The fairways were in pretty good shape. Most of the tee boxes were level but a bit chewed up. I was in two greenside bunkers. Both were deep with vertical sides and just barely enough dirt to keep my shot from flying out of control. The greens varied greatly from soft, smooth, medium fast to super ugly shaggy, patchy, bumpy (#3 in particular.) I agree with Robert that #15 is a beautiful par 3. There are tall reeds and very deep bunkers in front of the big wavy green. My other favorite hole was #18, a par 5 with its green guarded by water, rocks and bunkers.

POP was a fast 3 hr 40 min. It was a lot of fun and I would definitely play here again if I’m in the area.
