Played 3/24/20 @ 1210pm. Wind was up, but not howling... Course is in COVID-19 mode, but they are letting people ride together in carts. The first and second holes are messed up- a pipe burst and there is water all over the place. The first hole has a 6 foot deep sinkhole in the middle of it. The second hole is soaked and is only playing about 122 yards. The rest of the course is in decent shape with a lot of brown in surrounding areas just off the fairways. Tee boxes were level, fairways were tight but were easy to hit irons from. Bunkers had nice sand in them and they are all over the place! Greens were ok, but hard to stop anything since the wind was drying them up. Overall great experience except for holes 1 & 2. They should be able to fix it in about 2 weeks they said...

Played 3/2/20 at 1152. Course was in great shape... Tee boxes were mostly level, fairways were tight and gave a lot of roll. Sand traps were good to great, they must have put new sand in them- it's just that nobody seems to care about raking traps after they get out. Rough was non-existent and was only 1-2 inches longer than the fairway- it was not very penal at all. Greens were great and were rolling fairly smooth, the par 3 greens were a little chewed up. The POP is another thing entirely... our group finished 4hrs 45mins waiting on every shot. It was grueling!! Probably won't play here unless it's really early in the morning. Otherwise, I've had my dose of Skylinks for the year.

Played 2/19/20 @ 710am with the bounce back coupon they gave out in November. Conditions are top notch right now! Tee boxes level with only a couple uneven ones- I can't recall which ones. The fairways are like carpet and just a little fuzzy- not tightly mown. The rough was really juicy and balls had a tendency to sink down- balls were a little hard to advance. Sand traps were great with some being packed down due to being watered. The greens were medium to fast- probably around 9-10. The greens were not holding shots well due to a combination of undulation and pin placements. Customer service was great from the pro shop, the starter and the cart girl. I recommend playing here right now because the conditions are borderline immaculate! Oh, and the GPS touts that it was voted one of the best conditioned courses in Southern California by Greenskeeper.org

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...
