Played Fri Nov 9th at 654, got out early because I think the santa ana winds kept people away. Decided to walk, good decision, if was a good walk, not tiring. Overall course is in winter mode, tee boxes were level but hard, fairways were thin and if you missed the fairways the rough was not too long, but the bad was the bare dirt you were hitting off, I was in several traps and the sand was decent. Greens rolled ok. Some of the pin placements were a little stupid and penal. The wind really picked up and twice the ball moved on the green, so you can guess it was not very much fun. I do like the layout, we played the whites and if you don't drive the ball 270 or more that is where you should play, it is long from the blues. Thanks to the santa ana winds I shot my worse score in over 2 years, I had 39 putts , yikes should have gone home also, LOL

Played Tues Nov 6th at 7:26 got there at 7 and there was like 3 cars in the parking lot and I think they were the employees. Club house said "cart path only " scared away people. Check in was very fast and very very friendly as always. We left a single walker go in front of us and we teed off early. It was very overcast and walking down the first fairway was quiet. It felt like we were playing Christmas day, all alone. We were told by the front desk that the greens were a little slow and definitely found that on the first hole, but they were all consistent. The course was in perfet condition, tee boxes fairways just really good. POP was 3:18 great day......

Played Tues Oct 30th at 7:15 got there at 6am hoping for breakfast but didn't open until 645, I watched 2 guys tee off in the dark with glow balls and flash lights on the ball, LOL WOW check in is always friendly but slow $17 for senior walking and lunch. Greens are always the best part of this course and when we got to the first I thought oh no. A little brown in spots and I thought slow, well no I put the first putt way past and ended up 3 putting the first green, but I learned only had 25 putts for the next 17 holes. Anyway the next 2 greens were normal, fast and rolled well, then on #4 it was the same as #1 but I learned the speed. Fairways were in good shape, rough was long, was in the green side bunker at #12 (played 226 par 3) and sand was wet but decent. IMHO the worse part of the course is the tee boxes, some really uneven spots to hit from. This course is funny on the back 9, wind came up a little on the last 4 holes and seemed to change direction. BLT at lunch is really good. This is not an upscale course, but the extremely small greens are very good practice for your short game and the greens are real nice. It also has a variation of holes that allows you to use most clubs in your bag. POP was 345, so so for 3 walking. Course backed up because some of the groups booked early and didn't want to pkay in the dark as it was very overcast.

Played Fri Oct 26th at 656, got out on time, first group out. This is not one of my favorite golf courses. The new carts have speed control and it is set way to slow, dam lawyers. It is also set for "more" cart path only holes, like number 9, come on please, ridiculous. This course is in the hills and has very sloping fairways and greens and some very narrow fairways. Many cases the pins are set in ridiculously sloping positions on the green. Tee boxes and fairways were ok, bunkers were a joke, should have played all bunkers as ground under repair. POP was 410, and since we were first out, that is all our fault. Didn't eat lunch as IMHO way too expensive.

Played Tues Oct 23rd at 7:07 got out early great day to walk. Just barely could see the ball off the first tee. POP was good at 335. The rough was very long, I use a volvik vivid yellow and still had issues finding it. We knew the greens had been punched but decided to play. There were a few bumpy putts, but after 2 holes you realized that they were slow and just had to hit it hard. They were puttable, I made 3 over 15 feet and had many from farther that I ended up with a 14" gimmie. Really do love this course to walk. Interesting side note, there is a major effort to build new tee boxes on all the holes, 2 each on most holes, so maybe new color boxes, or they are shorting up the whites and reds. I mean it does make sense to shorten it up because I bet they get more play from seniors, both men and women. Another side note, I never warm up, usually tee off too early so here is an interesting thing, I was 7 over for my first 5 holes, 1 par 1 boggie 3 doubles, I then went 5 over for the next 13, 9 pars, 3 boggies and 1 double ( thanks to a 3 putt lol ). So I guess the conclusion is that hitting maybe 10 balls would help me, lol but the range didn't open untill 8. Lol

Played Fri Oct 12th, our group messed up the email for tee times and luckily I was there an hour early for breakfast, which I missed and got right off. The last review was pretty accurate, greens half punched, and half not. They put the pins on the good grass side, so if you are on the correct side the greens rolled ok, if you had to go from punched to hole, you really had to hit the ball hard to get there, found that out on the first hole (3 putt) and learned, the only other 3 putt i had was I was on the good side of the green and hit it too hard, mentally forgot grass sides, so the greens weren't good but you could adapt. The other thing to consider is the approach, if the punched area is front and you play for rollout to back flag, it won't roll out , the ball pretty much stops. I had 32 putts so they are manageable. Other than the greens the course was ok.

Played fri oct 5th at 7.06, got out early with no one infront of us for 9 holes. Then we caught a group who stayed at a good pace. Then on 15 we caught a tournament and the last 4 holes were slow. Still over all POP was 350. We finished so early it was too early for lunch and we left. We knew the course greens had been punched but decided to give it a try, should had waited. First 2 greens were decient, then they got progresslvely worse,very bumpy. I guess it is that time of year for maintenance.

Played Fri Sept 28th at 7.07, check in fast and friendly. Breakfast was also fast and good. There was thick fog at tee time and you could only see about a 100 yards, barely see the tree on the left in the first fairway. We had 4 groups and when we were teeing off the others stood behind the golfer and absolutely could not even see the ball come off the club or in the air. Ok so then I hit, I was using a Volvik vivid matt orange ball and you could see the ball off the club and in the foggy air, lol just saying, use orange in fog.... About the course, there is construction going on at several holes which is messing up several fairways. There are several tee boxes that it was difficult to find a level place, the holes with no construction the fairways, some were thin, some had spots that were ok. The new tee box on 12 is nice only on the side away from the hill, it is very narrow and when you get on the hill side your feet are below the ball, I was not in any bunkers so can't comment, the greens were not bad, probably the best part of the course. If they would just put a little money and effort into this course it could be a nice course, very up and down holes, very narrow at times and if you play the blues the par 3's are on the long side.

Played Tues Sept 25th at 7.06, staft was great as usual, we were a walking 2 some and the second group out for the day. A riding 2 some in front of us and NO one behind us. POP was great at 3.12. We took a few extra putts and chips on hole #2 to let the 2 some get in front of us a little more and it worked, actually didn't see them again until the back 9. The weather was overcast and being out there was fantastic by yourself, a really nice fall day. Now about the course, everyone knows Goose has great conditions and the front 9 were not bad, as usual the traps were a little hard, but fairways and greens were acceptable. The back nine was a different story starting on #12, they cut the fairways real low and left dead grass on 4 or 5 fairways on the back nine, it was like playing ground under repair the entire fairway. It is obvious that they are getting ready to punch the fairways, so......IMHO, if you have never played Goose and are planning to go and experience it, please wait for the course maintenance to heal before you go so you can get the real Goose course. Truthfully the back nine was not nice to play yesterday. If you have played it, just know that the course is under maintenance and don't expect too much.

Played Fri Sept 21st at 706, got out early as the group in front of us didn't check in on time at the starter. POP was good at 345. The course was just way to wet, don't know if they were expecting hot weather or they were going to punch the fairways. The greens were punched 2 to 3 weeks ago and for the most part were OK soft and there were some bumpy rolls, but you couldn't see any holes. The traps were ridiculous, so wet it wasn't funny and standing water in one. Service in the restaurant was greay as usual but I have noticed the food has not been up to par. I had the small salad twice in the last month and it was wilted, had the cole slaw yesterday and was dark and didn't taste good. New management????? we will be back as we like the courses

Played Tues Sept 18th at 707. I used my LA Senior card for the second time. Check in quick. I haven't been here for 2 years and forgot most of the holes. The scenery is great, in the hills and deer all over the place, 9 on the first hole alone. POP was not good at 445, we were following a 2 some and they clearly were in no hurry and thought they hit the ball farther than they did. We played the blues at 6145 yards, this made the par 5's 475 plus but made the par 3's a little long. The entire course slopes away from the mountain, fairways, and greens. Many of the holes are a bit tight to drive and a few of the greens had larger slopes than expected. Today the greens were just plain flooded. You left big foot print impressions just walking on them and our 3 some had 6 balls actually plug (half the ball down ) on the greens. Maybe they were getting ready to aerate. I don't know when the new concrete cart paths were put in, but they were very nice and welcome. Because of the scenery and a few challenging holes i would not mind coming back here soon.

Played Fri Sept 14th with our OFG group. Had a 7am tee time, easy check in, restaurant doesn't open for early golfers. Got out 10 minutes early and POP was 413, This is the second time I have played this course as it is a long drive for the people from O.C. I actually like the layout of this course, and wish we played it more often, in and out through houses but they never come into play, very wide fairways. Course was in good shape, greens a touch slow as a few were still recovering from being punched. Rough was very manicured and the ball really sat down in it. One thing I don't like is #1 and #10 are cart path only, really no reason for this and don't like starting a round having to take 4 clubs from the cart to hit your approach shot on the opening hole. Restaurant was open, but it is a little "stuffy" for my liking, french dip sandwich with fruit cup was good though.
