Played 12/29/16 on a whim to go golfing. Found a deal and booked for 12:52. Haven't played here for several years as our first experience with the prior manager was less than stellar and that's all it took for us not to return. However, upon prompting of my son's recommendation to give it another try; we did. We arrived early and the Check in staff were a definate improvement. Pleasant and welcoming. Walked back down to check in with the starter and 'wait' for a cart. We had arrived early and probably a good thing. This date they had booked tee times going off every FIVE minutes, resulting in a 30+ minute backlog; and not enough carts. A hurry and wait scenario. Only practice area I saw was the putting green (in very good shape). Starter kept his cool and did his utmost to keep everyone moving to the best of his ability. We were sent off to the 1st tee box and met our other twosome and waited as the group in front waited to tee off once the group in front of them cleared the fairway. This 2 to 3 group back-up on every hole lasted for the front nine and finally started to clear either by groups ahead of us leaving or??? All, for the most part, were patient and friendly knowing there was nothing we could do, but wait and enjoy the round best we could. Delays typical at the Par 3s and the blind holes (several) you had to send someone ahead to report when the coast was clear to fire away. Beautiful warm sunny day so was grateful just to be out on a course.
DEFINITELY MAJOR course improvements under the new ownership so BIG KUDOS there. Still a work in progress obviously, but Wow, when things mature and fill in and these crazy winter rain storms quit pounding the beautiful white bunkers and landscaping to oblivion, it'll have a chance to recover and become a very nice local course to hone your game. As others have mentioned there are some quirky holes. I for one can do without that big boulder right in the vicinity of where I'm teeing off. Grrrr. (Directly in line of sight/shot from the Blues/Blacks); Q u i r k y & unique.
Tee boxes are newly rennovated, very nice size, well grown in/good length (some black tee boxes are still growing in/closed), some divot damage on the Par 3s as typical.
Fairways were in Great shape. You really need to factor in all the ups/downs/side to side slopes to keep from rolling all the way off (Note: Don't hit ball out of the bark; they want you to move it into play no closer to the hole without penalty) ...I think I managed to reap the benefit of 3 or 4 flat lies all day. Cart paths gravel / concrete mixed bag due to rennovations. Most fairways were adequately marked with exits.
Rough was a healthy length, grass-wise, but with the econ layout; penalties a plenty if you rolled off the fairway and onto the dirt/granite/bark.
Bunker I was in was in great shape with good quality sand. Others on the course were still dealing with some excess water accumulation.
Greens were AWESOME!! Soft, and VERY receptive; minimal unrepaired ball marks, rolling medium/slow speeds; a tidge bumpy from all the foot traffic of prior rounds.
Only ONE water jug on the entire course and that was empty as you can imagine with the packed course; made worse by no cart service or access to a 9th Hole turn to obtain additional drinks/snacks. Sign in parking lot indicated absolutely no outside drinks/food; so stock up in the pro shop (No onboard coolers). Also, No GPS on carts, and really didn't expect them; however, I would like to go on record saying if there was a GPS system on the carts that showed where groups were in front of you, it could certainly speed things up by alleviating delays in driving forward, waiting, and driving back to the tee box on those blind holes. Ball washers on each hole. Divot mix at the turn, most were empty (a good sign that folks were repairing fairway divots, so no gripe there from me). Due to the overly packed course, we were unable to finish our round as it simply got too dark to see. Beautiful views of the mountains and to see the ongoing hard work being put into this course is a wonderful positive in light of so many courses going by the wayside. Our hats are off to the owner for their efforts (it truly shows), and kudos to the course crews working hard to preserve what they've accomplished thus far, and their continued efforts with new improvements. Never thought I'd say it....., but I believe this novice golfin gal will be back to give it another go. (I played from the Whites as the course does play short).
Note: They have not changed their signage (Still Hidden Meadows Golf Course), and your GPS may be of NO use either since the revision of the course layout. I was on hole 2 (Par 3) and it was showing as hole 14 (Par 4) on my GPS watch. So you'll probably need to rely on a rangefinder for accurate reads. I didn't feel the 100 yard markers were totally accurate, but I could be wrong there. If you need directions to the course (GPS for car), don't use Boulder Oaks as a destination to locate (for now). Again, just this novice golfin gals humble opinion. Fouuuuuuurrrrr!!! ;)

12Dec2016: 10:00 a.m. -- Played at the GK end-of-the-year outing at my ABSOLUTELY FAVORITE #1 GC, Rams Hill. LOVE LOVE LOVE this AMAZING course. What could make this course any more wonderful than a group of Great GKers, Fabulous Staff, and Pristine Practice facilities??.....an unusually PERFECT day weatherwise. Sunny, cool, and NO Big Wind all day. AWESOME!!! Echoing what others have mentioned in their reviews..., the course was in top notch shape.
Green Green Green which speaks volumes for the exceptional course maintenance crews. Astounding how this desert course is manicured to its level of perfection.
Okay, so the fairways and tee boxes may have been a tidge longer than summer conditions might be, and the Yes, the areas directly surrounding the bunkers were uniformly browned, but I didn't feel these were detracting factors at all, but moreso smart maintenance to keep things healthy and safe from upcoming colder temps/frosts. Yes?/No? Greens were remarkable in their large deep emerald green beauty. They were receptive to well hit shots, and there were signs of earlier day's play footprint traffic, and occassional un/ill-repaired ball marks, but they all rolled fairly true; not as fast as the practice greens, but fast enough to challenge your putting game. Bunkers (and there are plenty), were consistent throughout. Ample good quality sand. No onboard GPS on carts, but they do have ball/club washer, and a cooler with ice/water. The Cart service was frequent/friendly and reasonably priced. The Clubhouse, Pro Shop, Restaurant, and Food are Top Shelf!!!! Did I mention I Luv Luv Luv this course? Lady friendly forward tee boxes made for decent scoring opportunities if you could capitalize with your A-game. My game finally started to awaken on the back 9. This course is simply Beautiful in design, conditioning, and professionalism from the minute you arrive until you head home after a great meal/libation. Certainly Worth the drive; a Must 'Go Play'. Exceptional end to the GK Events Season. Just this novice golfin gals opinion.
Thank you Johnny for another Great year of friendship and dedication to improving the golf experience through social media awareness for golfers and courses alike. Thank you to all those sponsors and GKers who give of their time, products, and unyielding support of this wonderful "Know Before You Go" Greenskeeper world. Thank you All -- Can't wait to see what 2017 has in store for us.

Played on Sunday 12/4/16 for the first time with GK Gurus. After recalculating GPS directions via my phone instead of the wrong way my new vehicles GPS took us, we arrived in plenty of time to allow for leisure check in process and warm ups. We were greeted by extremely pleasant staff, and the professionalism of all was consistent throughout the day. Clubhouse/Pro Shop is beautiful! Carts are being replaced by new carts equipped with onboard GPS units; we ended up going through 3 carts, due to various issues with each; but again, they are being replaced so not expected to be an issue soon.
Driving range, putting/chipping area are adjacent to Holes 1 and 10. I didnt see a practice bunker area, and I didn't ask the Starter. Half the putting area is for chipping and other half for putting? Sorry guys, but Irons only on the driving range which for me isn't an issue as I can't hit my driver that far anyway so I was still able to get my warm-ups with all desired clubs. Rstang06 added comments - Would've been nice to be able to warm up with driver, even if there was a net to hit into/even 4 iron shots can exceed the far end nets. Considering both holes 1 and 10 have forced carries, your not starting out the gate with driver any way/for most. Course knowledge is a definite benefit for this course to ensure a good scoring game. Also recommend bringing ample amount of golf balls.
We were provided with yardage booklets that did help, in addition with our range finders and yardage GPS watches. My game has been off so this course was not forgiving at all.
Tee boxes were in good shape, filling in nicely from an overseed; mostly level and good size/shape. Par 3 tees showed typically more divot marks as with most courses. Ball washers on the old carts, as well as many, if not all holes. Fairways wind through up and down the hillside. I don't think there is a non-sloped fairway on the course. Everthing severe left to right or vice versa, to dog legs/hidden approaches, elevated blind multi-tierd greens or tee shots to downhill fairways that could seemingly roll forever. Fairways were in very good shape for this time of year. Tight lies, with several GUR areas, some collection areas showing more wear and tear; but still very playable. Rough was thin so shots could easily run out and off into the scrub on some holes, but other areas thick enough to save you a penalizing stroke. A couple improvements on two holes assists with keeping balls from going OB, resulting in better maintained POP from ball search and rescue delays.
Fairway bunkers were mostly moderate to thin coverage with some rocks; however, upon after round discussions with Course Mgr, he advised they are in the process of reworking fairway bunkers to include lowering of some of the more severe high lipped bunkers and addition of better sand quality. Greenside bunkers (I was in 2), were nice with sufficient sand for ease of exit.
Greens were the best feature. Beautiful dark green bent grass. Some scuff marks from earlier days rounds played and unrepaired/improperly repaired ball marks, but for the most part they rolled fast, and quite true, some just a little bumpy. Medium/Soft which held shots quite well also. Subtle difficult reads provided plenty of challenge to even the best of putters. Greens quite large, many tierd and if you didn't stay below the hole, you could easily find your putt roll off the green a punishing distance. Go long and you could be rewarded by a quirky round about roll down to the hole. Again, course knowledge is a definite Plus. Don't write this course off after one brow beating round; it's one of those unique, Very challenging tracks, that I believe can reward the right shot shapers. Course beat me up pretty severe, but the staff, wonderful GK Guru company, and first class after game treatment and course improvement plan discussions were extremely enjoyable and quite informative and promising. Will certainly give it another go once I find my A-game and digest this last piece of golf course humble pie. Just this novice golfin gals opinions.

Played 11/5/16 on a $74 twosome w/cart unlimited same day replay coupon @ 1015.
Wonderful experience from start to finish. Staff were simply amazing/friendly. I don't think I've ever seen a cart service as often as we did this day...Wow!!!
Practice putting green adjacent to the clubhouse in great shape. Driving range elevated grass hitting areas with practice chipping/bunker area nearby.
Course was pretty full and pace of play managed pretty well with wait delays on about 4 holes, but the company and weather and players both forward and aft just took it all in stride.
Tee boxes (Forward) were quite shaggy from new growth, but still quite level with minimal divot damage.
Fairways were pretty tight, rolled forever, and quite visually challenging -- loved it.
Bunkers were mixed bag...some I believe may have been under repair/unplayable; others were a bit thin but still playable; and others ample sand, yet earlier golfers poor etiquette showed by lack of raking them...I just don't get it!!
Rough was a nice length, some areas a bit thin, some soggy; minimal GUR areas.
Greens were soft, held shots well. Putting was medium fast/fast; bumpy bumpy probably due to later a.m. tee time, making getting straight putts to the hole a test of patience/luck/skill? Minimal unrepaired ball damage.
Some of the beautiful water features were dried up; in support of water conservation efforts. Adequate facilities available throughout the course/i.e. ball washers/water & restroom stations. No GPS on carts. Overall truly enjoyed the course. Course knowledge a plus. Truly enjoyed this course and would certainly go back again..I'd even recommend a GK Event here if possible. Interesting layout and challenges for beginner to advanced golfers. Just this novice golfin gals impression. Will be teeing up here again soon. ;)

Played in GK event 10/16/16. WOW!! What Amazing Improvements. Nice little warm up area into multi-station net, but soo much better than what was there originally when we last played a few years ago.
Beautiful quaint clubhouse renovations - impressive. Staff were FANTASTIC from the minute we arrived. Very accommodating/actually went above and beyond to make this event one to remember and wanting you to come back for more.
Course was in the best shape I've seen it in for the times we've played.
Fairways rolled out nicely and were easy to hit off.
Rough was playable; came in handy to keep from rolling off and down into a deep green-side bunker, yet tough to get up and down.
Tee boxes (from the Red), were mostly well manicured & level; yet there were those that were slightly bumpy & uneven.
Greens rolled medium/slow for the most part; but held shots extremely well. Some un-repaired ball marks, and cups showed end of day wear resulting in quite a few lip outs. I profess to be a fairly good putter, but this day had me scratching my head and grimacing in anguish of twoputtitous :(
Bunkers were pretty consistent...and I was in my fair share. Most were thick/heavy sand, but one or two were a little thinned out.
Cart service was frequent and very friendly. :)
Pace of play was 4 hrs, and wind will come in to play during your later in the day rounds for certain. Course knowledge a Big Plus! Prepare with extra sleeve or two of balls, for if you make it through a round here without losing a ball, you can count yourself a Master of Mt Woodson.
This course is one of my favorites in the Ramona area...the surroundings/scenery can't be beat in the for the price and challenge. Red tees are EXTREMELY lady friendly, and Blues will test even the most accurate of shot shapers.
Practice chipping area located far end of parking lot. (Watch for errant shots from 2 nearby holes). Nice practice Putting area adjacent to starter area/1st tee box.
Lovely, friendly, Cleveland Rep was there with great demos to get a real hands on look/feel of the wedges/putters. Will be seriously looking at their 2.0 chipper maybe in the future ;)
Hope to be back to this course again in the near future...SO NICE to see the improvements and can't wait to see what they have in store in their future.
Mt Woodson is a MUST play course...even if nothing more than to say you experienced 'The Bridge"...Still a dobule E ticket ride! Kudos to Johnny and his support team.
Went home with TWO Beautiful LinkSoul women's golf shirts...can't wait to sport them around on my next golf outing. No better day than a day with Great GKers, and the beautiful challenging course layout of Mt. Woodson Golf Club...just this novice golfin gals opinion. I'll Be Back :) Thank you.

Played here as Day 2 of our mini golfing getaway, Thurs 9/22 (Thanx to AcesFull & TeaGal for offering up a coupon they had and couldn't use). We set a tee time up for 8:55 a.m. and arrived a little early and were offered to go out right away (cold)...I opted to warm up a little, with no problem as the twosome couple in front of us wanted to play by themselves. As many of you know, if you've ever had the pleasure of playing Desert Willow, this place is Top Shelf Amazing from the minute you arrive. We played Mountain View as they were working on Firecliff (you did have the option of playing one of its 9 twice though if you wanted to play it). Green Green Green...lots of moisture on the course. Tee boxes level/lush. Fairways early morning didn't roll out much due to the moisture, but they were nice to hit your sequential shots to the greens. Bunkers were damp but very playable/consistent throughout. Rough lush, and penalizing as you'd expect. Greens had been punched within the last week or two, small holes, not sand filled, so maybe they were planning on seeding them soon...so greens were slow, bumpy, and extremely difficult to sink putts from any distance. Regardless...this was a much more enjoyable track to play.
Flies/Gnats were a Big nuisance, so wear some sort of bug repellent. Twosome in front of us were quite slow, so a twosome behind us had caught up with us and we had the pleasure of their company the last 11 holes (they were Great Fun). Course maintenance staff were out in full force, but very courteous to stop while addressing your shot. Cart person made his rounds frequently and was very courteous as well. Stellar practice areas at this course. New lodging areas going up all around the property. Clubhouse, the food, Pro Shop, and Staff are simply Amazing!! If you've never played here...you truly owe it to yourself to go. (*Mountain View has less bunkers than Firecliff, but both deserve a go.) Love this place... a Top 10 fav!

Had a UP$99 Deal for Stay and Play all day date of arrival and departure. We booked for Weds 9/21-Thurs 9/22. Rain didn't dampen our arrival day tee time @ 9:00 a.m. Staff were Very nice, BUT... we weren't advised that the Driving range, practice greens, restaurant and one of the 3 nines (Indian track) were all closed. Ummmm...would this have changed our plans...probably if it weren't for the fact we had to use up the coupon by 1 Oct. In all fairness, yes, it is late in the season, and they were overseeding the Indian track and doing bunker renovations. So, we went out early (cold with no practice since driving range closed) per their guidance of starting on Royal 9 and then on to the Mountain for our finishing 9. I was quite disappointed with Royal 9, and ready to call it quits, but pushed on. Tee boxes were fine (level, a bit long), fairways were in good playable shape - rolled out fine. Bunkers not too bad either. Rough a manageable length. A lot of beautiful geese on the course (and their poo on the greens and tee boxes); however, the greens on Royal 9 were absolutely horrible! -- hard, and a regular mine field of dirt lumps (ant hills?)...virtually impossible to putt unless you spent time sweeping them clean. Fairways were very tight, so going out cold - well you better be able to hit em straight or you better have good insurance. We managed to trudge through the first 9 of Royal and moved on to the Mountain 9. What a Welcomed difference. Wider fairways, nicer greens with minimal ant mounds. Somewhat of a redemption from the first 9 of Royal for sure; so we went around this 9 again. A lot of quaint water hazards throughout, and it's obvious they are putting a lot of effort into this older retirement community. This course would probably be much more appealing to play when in prime conditions. Simply an older track requiring good accurate shots to stay out of trouble. The "boutique" lodging facilities were nice, but can't relay anything on the clubhouse as it was closed. Pro Shop was quaint - Staff very pleasant and welcoming. One and done for us, no big hurry to go back, but for a quick, inexpensive round of golf, the Mountain 9 is fine (would've liked to play the Indian 9 too, but didn't so can't report on that either). Their online website/video & photos are quite misleading, but again...for $99 we got what we paid for. We did not use our all day replay on Thursday, instead we were offered a great opportunity from fellow Gkers AcesFull & TeaGal to use a coupon they had, but didn't have time to use, for another local area course (Again, Many Thanks you two, for making our getaway a pleasant one.) My rating of this course is low compared to others; I base it on my playing enjoyment and all available resources. Just my humble novice golfin gals observation/opinion.

Sorry so late, just didn't want to dismiss writing a review on this course.
Actually played twilight (3:15pm) 6/30/16. Had a Freebie coupon for 2 w/cart, I was presented at the Carlsbad Golf demo days. Can't beat Free. Hadn't played St.Mark in quite awhile, and last time we played we weren't overly excited. BUT I'm truly Happy to say the course is in remarkably WONDERFUL conditions from tee to green. Check in at Pro Shop was very pleasant and they even got us out a little early even though the late afternoon was quite full. Lots of twosomes/threesomes, so we finished in a little under 3.5Hrs. Tee boxes were nice, mainly all were level and in great shape. Fairways were excellent as well, most fairway divots filled in, minimal bare/GUR areas, some soggy spots from...dare I say it?...Water!! Bunkers were pretty consistent, good shape/adequate sand to support easy outs; maybe a few were a little crusty from water over-spray. Rough in good shape overall as well. Manageable length, not too penalizing. Its obvious they have invested significant time/effort in course upkeep/improvement. Loved the new drought tolerant landscaping around the tee boxes. Greens were in very nice shape as well. Medium to Slow roll, fairly true roll/some slightly bumpy (but it was at the end of the day), minimal ball marks, and held shots well. Some blind approach shots so you really need to pay attention as to where players are ahead of you. Overall we were very impressed with St.Mark. Their practice areas are nice as well, and their onsite restaurant is a welcome for after game R&R. So Very Glad we gave this one another shot for sure. Very Pleased. Just this golfin gals thoughts. :)

Played 6/25 @ 11:28 w/GKrs Bsparks and Tobster. I'm not big on giving poor reviews on any course, but feel I must be honest in my assessment, good/bad/indifferent...Yes, I know SoCal is still in a drought and water is tight, but having played this course several times before, and after playing yesterday...we were a little disappointed by the conditions overall. Fairways were sketchy (browned out more than usual, some divot damage, dry & hard to hit off of).
Areas leading up to greens weren't too bad. The greens were in various stages of recovery from past aeration, but overall puttable (medium speed/slightly bumpy); One green had 2 gopher traps into it, and Hole 17, Par 3, the whole middle section was marked as GUR which are firsts for me. Bunkers weren't horrible...60/40; some thick/fluffy and others thin/crusty. Special mention to Hole 4 dog leg left,, fairway bunkers on the left just let go, no sand, and two of them halfway back-filled with dirt...either fill them in and level them off or ???
No cart lady at all on a warm Saturday. Driving range off of mats. Nice practice putting green. Chipping area needed a little attention/overgrown.
Upon arrival at the gate, we entered the #Code that was provided on the call box... Guess what? It didn't work... thankfully a resident provided us access and advised us the Code had been changed...Umm would've been nice for the course to have updated the sign on the call box dontcha think?!! Pace of play was good, course wasn't overly crowded. I truly hope this course hangs in there and doesn't succumb to giving in and leaving residents who paid for golf course properties holding the bag as seems the trend these days with so many golf propertys closing down completely. This is a course worth keeping and I hope it sees some continued attention/improvements in the future. Just this golfin gals humble opinion.

Played 5/28, Saturday @ 8:56 scheduled tee time, Underpar coupon $99 for two players unlimited (although you can't play past 5pm - all carts must be back in as they roll up the sidewalks and send everyone home...WHAZZUP With That!?), included anything off the menu and a beverage (either preference alcohol/non-alcohol)...Free range balls on a nice grass driving range...Very nice/large putting green and practice chipping area with bunker. Really you can't beat that deal with a stick -- Loved this place! The course is on the far end of LaQuinta/Indio area; Nice, Quiet, BEAUTIFUL and a Very Welcoming Staff from start to finish, both Outside and Inside the Clubhouse. Weather was Beautiful, and course conditions were very nice as well...minimal brown areas, HOWEVER, Fairways had been punched within the last week or two which made for some aggravating kicks left/right on an otherwise perfect down the middle fairway shot. ARRRGH!!!
Quite a few options from the Tees for both men and women to challenge your game.
Tee boxes were nice/level. Bunkers...and I was in several thanks to numerous bad bounces, I was not a big fan of...consistently on the crusty side with quite a few rocks, but nothing a good solidly hit wedge couldn't get you out of. Others thought they weren't that bad. I just prefer a little more sand and less rocks.
Apron/Fringe were in very nice condition. Greens were a medium speed with very subtle breaks...in between transition of bermuda/rye grasses. Hard to get balls to check, but strategically placed shots saw rewards. POP was 4.5 hrs...course was stacked and Ranger made frequent rounds to keep everyone on pace wonderfully...always had/offered ice cold water. Cart services were frequent and friendly. Rough was easy to hit out of; not too penalizing. We truly enjoyed the layout.
Starter provided us with a Yardage booklet, great advise, and even got us all out a little sooner than our scheduled time. We were able to get 18 in, had an AMAZING lunch and beverage, then headed out to get in another 9 before we had to call it a day. I thoroughly enjoyed this course.
Carts were equipped with GPS & onboard coolers stocked with ice cold water.
Will certainly entertain going back if another coupon presents itself - ;)
Great round with Great GKers and Great Weather/Clubhouse/Course/Staff...Great Great Great...just this novice golfin gals thoughts. ;)

(sorry for delayed review again)
Played on a beautiful sunny/cool, Sun. 4/24 with 9:00 tee time (Used an UnderPar coupon $149 for 2 w/cart same day replay). Was in awe of this beautiful course from the moment of arrival. Class Act course from start to finish. Arrived early and enjoyed the grass driving range w/pyramids of golf balls (and a never seen by me feature... range scope attached to each club stand -- Very Neat!). Nice little chipping area as well. Good sized Practice green adjacent to the 1st Tee Box/Starter.
Was sent out a little early @ 8:40 with another twosome, and our pace of play was quite comfortable. Felt a little rushed at one point with a twosome behind us, and so we simply had them play through. Really was no where ahead for them to go, and they were in no rush either, but it just seemed like the best thing to do to better enjoy our round.
Tee boxes were perfect, level/lush. Fairways were immaculate...seed bottles had a green seed mix which I'm sure kept the divots from being an issue. Balls sat up so nicely, making iron shots effortless. Rolled verrrrrrrry nicely; especially if you caught a nice downward slope. Bunkers were a plenty and for the most part sand was consistent throughout...only a couple I were in were a little packed down, but great to see most were raked by golfers finding their way in/out of them earlier. Rough was lush 1-3" and club selection key to getting out well. Can't say enough about the Pro Course quality feel of this course... Layout is one continuous loop so be prepared in the event no cart girl. We were happy to see a Cart Lady making the rounds (saw her twice). No Marshal - not that one was needed as POP was GREAT. Carts were equipped with ball/club washer and cooler with ice and 2 bottles of water - No GPS. There were water/ice stations on course as well. Saw a "Coming Soon" plan for a snack bar/restroom station on the 9th, which will really take this course one more step toward perfection (in my opinion).
Greens were firm and even well hit shots could end up on/off the back/front. Not many double/triple tierd greens. Several bowl type greens would reward if shots went long, hit the back and rolled back down, on, and close to the pin; while others would stick/stay. No significant ball damage at all, and balls rolled consistent/true, fast/medium fast speeds throughout. Course certainly has some challenging holes and placement of bunkers throughout requiring a well thought out strategic game plan. Wind can certainly play a factor as it starts to kick up mid-day. By our back 9 it truly became a factor in drives/putting. (Main reason we didn't opt for a 2nd round - wasn't because we didn't enjoy our round...quite the contrary...LOVED IT!)
The Staff here are TOP SHELF! From the young man that took our clubs upon arrival, to check in at the lovely Pro shop; young man that cleaned our clubs afterwards, and even in to the comfortable bar/restaurant (Yummy). Hostess, Server, Busboys VERY attentive and friendly. I forgot my phone in the cart and they quickly sent someone down to search/retrieve it for me. I can't say enough of how impressed I was with this gorgeous diamond in the desert. Spectacular in every way...Scored one of my best rounds here...which I attribute to the course conditions. Definitely one of my Top 5 Favs for sure...can't wait to go back and give this Fabulous course another go round...just this novice golfin gals humble review.

A little late, but better late than not. Had the pleasure of teeing it here on 9Apr on an Underpar deal for $65 two players/unlimited same day replay/w-cart. Arrived early for our 9:21 tee time. Went in with minimal expectations as we hadn't seen too many recent reviews on this course. Located in an older community we were very pleased with the check in as the Pro Shop staff were wonderful and very informative. Quaint Pro Shop, pleasant starter, comfortable carts (no GPS), onboard ice cooler. Nice putting area, grass driving range was fine. Course has been going to turf reduction, and although residents may not be too keen on loss of the grass up to their patios; golfing here for the first time, we found the course to be interesting, not overly difficult, quite a few hazards (water) with deep bunker guarded greens. (18th hole being a Brute!) Tee boxes were fine, fairways were coming along nicely, rough was lush and bunkers had adequate levels of sand for the greatest majority.
Almost every green was elevated with slight undulations and back to front/front to back angles. Hitting short to run it up was met with 50/50 success...hitting to the green would typically roll off as the greens were firm and did not hold well. Fast/Med Fast speed, but overall rolled very true. We didn't see a cart girl this day. The clubhouse is older decor, but let me tell you...their food is FANTASTIC!!! Worth just going by for their burger and fries when you're in the area and wanting a good one at a decent price. Pork belly sliders AMAZING! We truly enjoyed this course...not an over the top Palm Desert/Springs resort course, but absolutely worth the time and money to give it a go if you are in the area. Very pleased and picked up another coupon and will be returning hopefully soon. Give it a go...just this novice golfin gals humble opinion. :)
