Played 1/1/20 at 1115. Course is a little pricey for what you get... Unless you're at Vet then it's real cheap. Tee boxes were pretty level for the most part with the par 3s chewed up a bit. Fairways had a few wet spots, but they were only on a couple of holes. A couple of the lakes have been drained out and are now considered waste areas that you can hit out of. They new waste areas are on the left of the tee box on 13 and the left of the fairway on 14, then on left near the green on 18. Rough almost nonexistent unless you're in the trees, then it gets real thick and juicy. Sand was great to hit out of- not too hard and not too fluffy. Greens rolled nice but got bumpier and bumpier as the round went on. I would play here a lot more if the price came down a little bit, but the $64 rack rate is a little steep. They do have deals on their website if you can play around 11a, then it can get down to under $50 w/cart.

Played 12/18/19 at 0710... It was freakin' cold in the beginning! (43 degrees)- golf is so much harder when you can't feel your hands... Cart path only for holes 1 and 2. Tee boxes were not very level. Fairways were thin with tight lies, rough nonexistent- only 1-2" longer than the fairway. Sand was good in the 3 bunkers I was in, but they did have a lot of rocks in them. The greens were really good, they rolled nice and became really fast on the back 9. Finished in 4.75 hours behind 2 slow groups.

Played 9/16/19 @ 1108am with a teeoff.com deal. Got checked in and sent out right away. Didn't run into anyone until the 7th hole which is unusual at Big Rec. This was by far the fastest I've ever played here- 3 hours 25 minutes (Unreal for a Long Beach course!). Tee boxes had some issues, especially the par 3s which were really chewed up. Fairways and rough had good coverage with no bare spots anywhere. Rough was only an inch or two longer than the fairway, balls were easy to find unless you got under a tree that's when it was longer. I wasn't in any bunkers but they looked good. Greens seemed like they were punched recently and were still healing. There was some light sand on them with a couple of greens having some issues- 9, 10 and 11. The greens did roll true for the most part, give it a week or two and they should be great.

Played 9/12/19 @ 1115am with the greenskeeper coupon- thanks Johnny! What a deal! Check-in was a breeze, the guy at the desk said they had punched the greens about 4 weeks ago. Tee boxes were ok, some were really bad- mainly the par 3s. Fairways were mowed down and had a lot of roll out, especially on the downhill holes- 11, 15, 18. Rough not really an issue, just a couple of inches longer than the fairways. If you wander any farther than that, it’s almost a jungle. Sand was great, although there were rocks mixed in. Greens have issues, some had bare spots on them- 8, 10, 13, 14. They kept the flags away from them, but I did have to putt through it once. Played 2 rounds in 3.5 hours passing through a couple groups... All in all a wonderful course! The views on the back 9 looking over the valley are incredible. The course has some issues with the greens, but for the price and the views, it’s worth it if you’re in the area. I don’t think I would drive up here just to play this course though.

Played 9/4/19 at 0720, they were just starting to punch the front 9. Didn't know it until I checked in at the pro shop. We were sent out on 10th tee box and played the course backwards. Course was in decent shape and was the greenest I have ever seen it, they have been watering the course and it shows. Tee boxes were pretty chewed up and it didn't seem like they have been rotated in a while. Fairways were lush and a little on the bushy side. Bunkers are a mess right now, all the watering that they have done has washed most of the sand away. All that's left in the bunkers is hard dirt with rocks mixed in. Greens on the back 9 were ok and a little on the bumpy side. Greens on the front 9 are just crap right now! It seemed like they used all the sand from the bunkers and dumped it on the greens. Its going to be a while until they will be semi-playable...

Played 8/28/19 @ 0740 and finished in 3:45 mins... Read the earlier reviews and got worried about the conditions and so I came in thinking it was going to be in bad shape. I was surprised, there are some rough spots here and there, but overall the course was great to me. They only had 4 cart path only holes and the new sod is growing in nicely- especially on the back 9. They have 40th anniversary pricing going on- which is a bargain for this caliber of a course. Tee boxes were level for the most part, fairways are coming along with some bare spots and ground under repair areas. Rough wasn't bad and was only a couple of inches longer than the fairway. Bunkers were great to play out of, although some of them have rocks. Greens could have been better but were rolling good- they had a light sanding on them which made some putts slower. Customer service was wonderful!

Played 8/3/19 @ 0620... The course just opened back up 2 weeks ago- so don’t expect prime time conditions right now. Some parts of the fairways had some issues, but most of them are rounding out. Tee boxes were good to almost great- mostly level. Fairways were pretty good, some spots had a great deal of sand in large areas. Rough wasn’t too penal, mostly cut down and easy to find your ball. Greens looked faster than they were- the starter said they were 10 on the stimp, but they were more like 7 or 8. Customer service was impeccable! From the bag drop to the end of the round- everyone was ready to help you with anything you needed. Overall, it was wonderful experience playing here. BTW- it gets pretty hot out there this time of year- 110 degrees by the time I finished.

Played 7/12/19 at 0730. They have just increased the rack rate by $5... Course was in good shape. Tee boxes fairly level except on the par 3s (hole 7 is really bad- it's like a pitcher's mound), fairways have several different types of grass growing with occasional bare spots, sand traps were ok but have a lot of rocks in them. The greens were rolling nice though, they looked really fast but weren't. All in all it was a nice round...

Played 7/8/19 at 1100- got out early and finished in 3:45 mins. Haven't played here since they've increased their rates and took away many of the birthday round perks. I almost forgot how I much liked playing here. I don't have that much to add since the last review. The only thing is that 13th tee box is having some major work done and that they have you playing from the forward tees. Everything else was wonderful- customer service, cart girl and the bar just beyond the 18th green...

Played 6/8/19 10am... Donovan Daily is no longer managing Willowick, so no more hot dog deals. Billy Casper now runs it (they run Birch Hills and Alta Vista)- just recently punched the greens the beginning of the week. Apparently the greens haven’t been punched for 4 years! There are still homeless people “living” near the 5th hole- they just moved their boxes from the previous spot. Condition wise, no improvements yet but the starter said they’re working on it. Pro shop empty, no merchandise at all... Tee boxes- daisies all over the place, fairways- 5 different types of grass to hit from, sand- hard as a rock, greens- slow with many, many bumps. The only reason why I keep coming back is because my friend is too cheap to play anywhere else, I might as well write a review and warn people before they come...

Played 4/1/19 @ 12pm right after a tournament. This course usually plays slow but today was extra slow. Tee boxes were mostly level from the blues, rough non-existent, fairway and greenside bunkers were a mixed bag. Some bunkers had fluffy sand and some had a nice top level with packed sand underneath. Greens healing nicely from being punched, some were pretty bumpy on the back 9. Give it a couple more weeks and the greens will be great.

Played 3/20/19 740a. Course was in ok shape. The greens had recently been punched and were a little bumpy. Some tee boxes weren't very level and it took some searching to find a level spot. Fairways were a mixed bag and depended on whether you were on a downhill or uphill lie. There were no hard pan areas for the most part. Rough virtually non-existent, maybe one or two inches different from the fairway. Bunkers inconsistent, but I think it was because of the rain packing the sand down. Greens will be a lot better in about two weeks. Unless you are a senior, make sure you try and book your tee time on their website, otherwise the rack rate is $50 weekdays...
