Played yesterday in the GK outing. This was my second time at this course and overall I still like the course as much as the first time. Having even just a bit of course knowledge is extremely helpful here with the sloping fairways and many blind shots. It may be short yardage-wise, but short doesn’t always mean easy! The fairways are in very good shape. The greens were rather inconsistent from hole to hole. The tee boxes had even footing, but many seemed slightly tilted although sometimes I couldn’t tell if they really were or if it was just an optical illusion. I was disappointed that they still don’t have logo balls but hopefully they will get them soon. When they do, I’ll be back for another round.
I played yesterday, 4-16-17. Strange as it was, I had never heard of this course before. ( I missed the recent GK reviews). I noticed it for the first time while searching GN for a decent deal on Easter Sunday. The course was fairly empty and I was paired with a nice twosome. We played the East/North combo.
I knew right away I was going to enjoy this course. I like old style, gimmick-free courses with lots of trees. Conditions were really nice. The fairways were almost completely green with lots of cushion. Tee boxes were in great shape as was the rough which, though clumpy in spots, was short enough to not be a problem. The greens showed very faint marks from recent punching but rolled completely smoothly and pretty fast. The par 3s were a lot of fun. Most played long due to either being uphill or having large dips in front reducing the roll onto the green. The only hole I didn’t like was #1 on the North course. It’s a dogleg par 4 with a tee shot over water onto a very steep hill which has an almost guaranteed roll back down towards the water. The frustration of that hole was completely cancelled out by #6, which at 510 yds from the forward tees, is the longest hole I’ve ever parred. I hope to return to Royal Vista soon to give the South course a try.
It was time to head back to my favorite desert course for another attempt at a respectable score. With an Underpar deal of $79 for 2, including range balls and replay, I was joined by Gk’er Robule for a very fun day. The weather was perfect with temperature in the mid 80’s and, once again, there was no wind.

With the exception of the bunkers, the course conditions were great. The fairways are still very green and lush. #’s 12 and 15 are much improved over last time I was there when they were thin with several bare spots. Some of low lying areas like between fairways 2 and 3 were pretty bare but fortunately I didn’t end up there this time. The tee boxes were all level with no divots to speak of. The greens were beautiful, smooth and rolling medium fast. I’m getting to know these greens better each time which is very helpful with all the crazy breaks. The bunkers all were extremely thin and many were muddy or had standing water in them. The rough is pretty deep in places but didn't cause too much trouble.

Once again, all the staff we encountered was very friendly and helpful. The course was not busy and we finished each round in just about 4 hours. I enjoy playing here more each time and I look forward to returning soon.
When going up to Long Beach today to visit some family and friends I stopped for a very slow (2.5 hr) but otherwise pleasant round at Little Rec. The large putting green and 3 chipping greens are very nice. I was paired with 3 other single walkers and we followed a few four- and fivesomes. Little Rec has long been my favorite 9 hole course. It's a nice mix of 3 & 4 pars with a couple of elevated greens and tees and some water to hit over from the back tees on #7. The conditions were about as good as I've ever seen there. The fairways were lush with only some faintly brownish spots. The bunkers were surprisingly soft and fluffy. The greens were awesome..smooth, medium fast and not a ball mark to be seen. I'm glad I got there today as they will be aerifying the greens tomorrow. Several large trees that were on the right side of #6 are gone after being damaged in the recent storms. I've never seen a beverage cart there before, but today it came by 3 times- very nice for only 9 holes. As long as you're not in a hurry, playing here is a great way to spend a couple hours.
Played yesterday with the GK Gurus. This is a beautiful, very challenging course in a remote setting in the mountains near Santa Barbara. The area is covered in huge oak trees and the hills are very green right now. The friendliness of the staff along with the rustic feel of the clubhouse and patios made for a very welcoming feeling.

The large chipping/bunker/putting green and grass driving range are very nice and the course is in really good shape. The fairways had good coverage with lots of roll which, unfortunately, landed me in several bunkers as the rough around them was too short to help stop the ball. Some of them had deep, soft sand, others thinner, but all were well maintained. The greens were firm and fast with crazy breaks that were both fun and frustrating. The only thing that I wish was a little different is that while the forward tees are a good distance for my game, many of them are all the way down on fairway level while the others are elevated. This did take away a tiny bit of excitement on a few holes but definitely not from the overall experience. It was a fantastic day and well worth the long drive getting there. I look forward to playing here again.
Played today, 3-19-17. With a GN hot deal + promo, $21 was a great price. I was paired with a couple and another single. The weather was sunny, breezy, almost chilly- quite a change from last weekend in the desert. The course was in really nice shape. The tee boxes were level with minimal divot damage. The fairways were beautiful with only a few having some brown areas in the middle. I never had a bad lie. #14 was CPO although we couldn't quite figure out why. The two bunkers I was in were both well raked with clean soft, damp sand. The greens played better than they looked. They were all very patchy looking with many scars around previous cup placements. They rolled smoothly, though, and pretty fast. This course is pretty short so I mixed up the tees I played from just for a little more variety and challenge. The beverage cart came by a a total of 5 times- pretty impressive. POP was unusually good at 4.25 hrs. This course is not far from home yet I don't seem to think of it very often. That may change now that I had such a nice time there today.
Played 3-16-17 as the last round of the Guru weekend. Right away I liked the look of the course with the many huge pine trees. It was kind of a nice change from all the palm tree covered courses. Like the previous two courses of the weekend, everything was super green here too. There are very wide fairways and some of the biggest, deepest bunkers that I’ve seen in a while – yes, I got stuck in a couple of them. There are many holes on the back with water. This course is pretty tough but I would like to try it again - in cooler weather.
Played 3-13-17 with the GK Gurus. It was great having an early morning tee time so that we were able to enjoy the entire round in relatively cool temps. This is an absolutely beautiful course. The fairways, tees and greens were just perfect. I was in two bunkers – one was soft, the other thin and crusty. There were ice water stations every third hole which is much appreciated in the warm weather. The first time I played here it was a bit intimidating with so much sand and water but this time it was nothing but fun. I had such a great time. Thank you, Johnny for setting this up. I hope to be able to play here again soon!
played 3-12-17 with GK Gurus. This was my first time playing here. I’ve driven past it many times never even noticing it right next to the Fantasy Springs Casino. There were many things that impressed me about Eagle Falls. The pro shop had a surprisingly large selection of women’s clothing and all marked 30% off. The carts had ice chests (with water bottles) and club/ball washers. There is a beautiful driving range, practice bunker and a large, super smooth putting green. The course was awesome. Everything was green and lush from edge to edge. It’s a very nice layout, not super difficult, but still a good challenge.
I played today, 3-1-17, with iluv2golflady. I was last here a couple years ago and really enjoyed the course. Unfortunately there was a lot of fog over the water today so we didn’t get the beautiful ocean views. Just like last time, the parking lot is a nightmare. It’s nearly impossible to find a spot, but they do have complimentary valet if needed. We had a GroupGolfer deal that included a push cart. I had taken my own but was impressed to see that their fleet was of very nice Clicgear carts. The staff in the pro shop was super friendly as was the starter. We arrived a bit early for our 10:45 tee time so took advantage of the large practice green and chipping/bunker areas. We were paired with a dad and his young son who was clearly a Rickie Fowler admirer.

The course conditions were fantastic. Tee boxes were level with much less divot damage than expected. There were laser range finders at each tee. The fairways were completely lush as was the rough. There are bunkers everywhere! The sand was damp but soft and easy to hit out of. The greens were firm and really fast. The starter had reminded us about the greens breaking toward the ocean, but because the course is out on the point, the ocean could be on two sides and that made things even trickier. The course was full with a POP of just under 2 hours.

The course will be closed March 20-22 for aerification of the tees and greens. It’s a bit of a drive to get down there but with a good deal it’s definitely worth it and highly recommended.
I played yesterday, 2-27-17. It ended up raining just about the entire round. We saw only 3 other twosomes the whole day so we basically had the course all to ourselves. Although weather conditions were lousy, the course conditions were really good. Other than the same thin/bare spots on #12 that were there when I last played in December, the fairways were green and well cushioned. The rain created a few muddy spots but surprisingly didn’t slow down the greens at all. They were firm and fast with many shots rolling right past the pins. Fortunately the rough was long enough to stop them from disappearing down the hills. The tee boxes were lush and level and bunkers had lots of sand.
I had been looking forward to the new carts but admittedly I was a bit disappointed. While it was nice having scratch-free windshields and a cooler, the GPS was very basic, showing only distances to front, center and back of greens. This course is so challenging with many blind shots that it wuld be helpful to have more details like distances to hazards.
Each time I play here I enjoy it more. I wouldn’t turn down a chance to play it again.
I played today, 12-26-17, with the GK Review Gurus. This was my second time playing here and I enjoyed it even more this time. It’s a very fun layout and surprisingly challenging for a short course. Even though I wasn’t entirely successful on them today, my favorite holes are the three par-3’s over water. The conditions were pretty good considering all of the recent rain. There were many very wet areas on the fairways but the grass was in really nice shape. The tee boxes were level and not too badly chewed up. The practice green was pretty bumpy but the course greens were smooth and medium fast. I found 2 bunkers. One was a giant puddle, the other was dry with heavy, coarse sand that was really easy to hit out of. I look forward to playing here again when the weather is nicer. I’m determined to get a better score than I did today. Many thanks to Johnny and everyone else for another great outing.
