I also got to join the fun at the latest GK event. I played with Jim, Kevin and Greg- thanks, guys!! This was my first visit to La Costa. The resort is beautiful and the staff very friendly and helpful. I agree with some of the previous reviews regarding the course conditions. I really liked the fairways. Other than the crazy number of unfilled divots, they were in great shape. I was in the deep rough many times but it wasn’t hard to hit out of. The bunkers were a bit thin but the sand was nice and I actually made a couple of good shots out of it. The greens weren’t pretty but rolled fast and smoothly. They had lots of unexpected breaks which kept us on our toes. Visually, overall, I found the course somewhat bland. I guess I just prefer hillier courses. What was really interesting, though, was the wind on the back nine. One minute it would blow warm, the next cold- very unusual. I would like to return sometime to play the other course. Thank you, Johnny, for another wonderful day. I really appreciate everything you do for us.
Played yesterday, 12-3-17, with iluv2golflady and her friend, Mike. We had an 11:15am tee time and got out immediately. Indian Hills is always good when looking for something inexpensive and local. It’s a pretty fun course with a variety of holes. It has some big elevation changes on the back 9. The front is basically flat except for the par 3 #3…don’t miss right!

Course conditions were pretty ok. Tee boxes were recently over seeded so they had good coverage but many were very out of level. The fairways were mostly good but there were many areas marked GUR and several others that should have been. Bunkers were clean, soft, damp dirt. The greens were somewhat disappointing, though. The grass has recovered nicely from the recent punching. They rolled pretty fast but they ranged from damp to waterlogged (#16) so were very bumpy.

POP was good at 4 hrs. We were behind a fivesome but rarely waited and there was no one behind us. The beverage cart came by 3 times. A fun day on a fun course.
I played today, 11-26-17. After seeing some current photos online, I knew conditions had recovered from the terrible shape the course was in the last time I played there, shortly before they closed for the summer. It’s a bit pricey now but I was so eager to play again that I found a Hot Deal and stacked a couple of rewards to bring down the cost a bit. I was paired with a very nice twosome and another single. Our tee time was 7:04am but we got out early at 6:45am.

The cart guys and starter are all very friendly and efficient, as is the guy in the pro shop who told me that the course in under new ownership. So far it seems to be a good thing. They have all new carts with ice chest and USB. The GPS units are to be installed soon. The course was in fantastic condition. The fairways were emerald green and lush. The yardage marker poles in the fairway centers have been removed and replaced by very large painted rocks on the sides of the fairways. The tee boxes were level but in need of mowing. The rough was all in good shape but varied a lot in length from one to maybe four inches in some areas. I was in one bunker. It was damp but soft, clean and well groomed. The greens were good. They were very quick even when wet in the morning and just got faster and faster. The rolled smoothly, except where there was a ring-shaped depression around many of the cups. I’m not sure what those were caused by. OB vegetation was nicely trimmed but it’s still so dense that it’s pretty much impossible to retrieve lost balls. It was also nice to see clear water in the lakes on 8 and 16. All the palm trees behind the 10th green are blackened from a recent brush fire.

I’ve said so many times how much I love this course, but the truth is it’s a love/hate relationship. It makes me crazy. The course beckons me with its beauty and layout and then it taunts me and beats me up – every time. Yet I feel compelled to keep going back to try again. It’s like I’m a kid determined to do something I’ve been told I can’t do (like get a good score – I’ve yet to break 100 there.) Will I return? Absolutely!!
Played a Thanksgiving day shotgun along with iluv2golflady. Everything was very well organized and we started on time at 8am. It was great to see all new carts. They are very comfy and are outfitted with club/ball washers, USB ports and interactive GPS.

The course in the best overall condition I’ve ever seen. The fairways were green and lush with a few divots but no bad lies otherwise. The rough was uniform throughout the course. It was cut fairly short, which was easy to hit from but, unfortunately, too short to keep balls from running off the cliffs. The bunkers had an inch or so of clean soft sand. Tee boxes were level. The greens were amazing. They looked like velvet, held shots well and putts rolled fast. They were such a pleasure. The vegetation throughout the course was cut back and thinned out giving the course a very neat and clean appearance. It was also great to see that #15 is no longer cart path only.

The only negative feature is the on-course bathrooms. They have no door locks, no soap and had ants on the seats. I have mentioned the lack of locks to the staff on previous visits and just don’t understand why this is apparently unimportant to them.

This is such a fun and challenging course. I always look forward to playing here. Definitely recommended.
Played today with an 8:38 tee time. I knew there was a good Underpar deal avail but getting early tee time was the higher priority so we were willing to pay $65 senior rate to be able to reserve farther in advance. Check in was fast and the starter, Denis, was very friendly.

The fairways were in very nice shape. There was just a small amount of browning, lots of roll and we found no bad lies. The tee boxes were mostly level but a bit shaggy. I was in two bunkers, both of which had really good sand. It might have just been my imagination but it really smelled like ocean sand. The rough varied from as short as the fairways to deep patches that all but covered the ball. The greens were beautifully green with only an occasional ball mark. They were very soft, though, with footprints and spike marks causing lots of slow, bumpy rolls. The edges of the cups were in need of trimming too.

This is such a fun course with a good variety of holes and lots of beautiful scenery. Who doesn’t love the view from the 18th tee! POP was good at just a bit over 4 hrs. I managed a good score and no lost balls. All in all, a great day. Glen Ivy – highly recommended.
Played yesterday as a single, eventually paired up with two others after a very frustrating check-in process. I had booked a GolfNow hot deal for 12:20pm. The guy told me I was not on the tee sheet. I showed him my email confirmation then he said just go talk to the starter. Then I showed him my email offer of free range balls or beverage and he told me that offer is not good anymore. (It is good till the 31st.) I was none too happy at that point but I eventually got my beverage and headed out.
Course conditions were very nice. The fairways were multiple colors but lush with just a few muddy spots. The bunkers had a sufficient amount of sand, all well groomed. The tee boxes were all cut extremely short so were as much dirt as patches of grass. There was only one that was badly unlevel with wobbly footing.
The greens were amazing. The were beautiful, velvety green, soft, and rolled fast and true. Yes, there were a few ball marks to fix along the way but not enough give a second thought to.
The layout was fun and challenging as always with lots of elevation changes, forced carries and false fronts. One of my favorite holes is #15 with all the hills and dips surrounding the green. Unfortunately, my long streak of rounds with no lost balls ended here.
The beverage cart came by several times and there were plenty of water jugs around the course. There were very few ball washers, though. It would be great if the carts has GPS but I guess with no reception out there that may not be possible?
POP was slow at 5hrs but we had so much fun we snuck in a few extra holes finishing at dark. This is such a fun course. I highly recommend it and look forward to playing again.
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.
