Tee'd off around noon. Single paired with a 3some. POP was a great 4 hours. Course is in good Fall condition. A little brown here and there, but mostly lush.
Tee boxes were well maintained, with just minor divot damage. Some were a little thin, but still very playable.
Rough was not too penalizing, and good to play from.
Like I mentioned before, fairways were good Fall condition. Great roll out, still enough turf around, lush in some spots.
All bunkers were well maintained with soft sand.
Greens were pretty good. I think they punched about 2 weeks ago. Med-fast, a tad bumpy, but held its line. Should be good for the foreseeable future.
Highly recommend.

Played Dos Lagos, Saturday 10/7 at 8am. Went out as a 3some, behind multiple 4somes. We knew we were in for a long day. POP about 5 1/4 hours. With commuting back to Redondo Beach, I got home about 3:15. Also took an hour to get there in the AM. Loooong day.

But I gotta say, Dos Lagos is a great course. Even with no range (just hitting mats), only 1 putting green, and being a Par 70, I still love the course. From the blues it plays about 6600 yards and a 128 slope, I believe. So still a decent test.
A few quirky holes on the front 9. #6 is a beast of a hole. There are also some great holes here. #9 is fun. #4 is great, if you avoid the right side, haha.

The back 9 is a little more hilly, and also more parkland (whereas the front is more target style). #17 is a cool par 3, and 18 is a nice finishing par 5.

The course is in superb shape right now, but they are going to punch the greens 10/7 and 10/8.
Tees had some wear, but definitely playable.
The fairways had nice soft turf, but you still got good roll out on well struck shots. They had some overseed on them, but it didn't affect anything.
Bunkers were in decent shape (some were a little muddy until the sun came out).
The greens were pretty good. Nice, smooth roll, even with a lot of ball marks. They are punching today and tomorrow, I believe.

Dos Lagos is a great course in the Corona Valley. I just wish the 15 freeway wasn't 65 miles away...
I'd wait 2-3 weeks for the greens to heal, and then it should still be in tip top shape again.

Great day out at Skylinks on Thursday 9/28. Tee'd off about 10am, and finished about 2:45, as a 5some. We even waited a bit here and there, so all in all, pretty good POP.
According to the GK updates, they are going to punch starting next week, so I thought I'd get over there before hand.
Good thing I did. Course is in great shape. The only knock are the tee boxes, and I know that maintenance will address them with the upcoming work.

Tee Boxes - Shaggy, hairy, patches of dirt and burned out areas... and not great level lies and stances - Only knock on the shape right now.
Fairways, bunkers, rough are all looking good - has that "browning color scheme", but nice lies throughout the fairways, and the rough was a little thick, but good enough to play out of.
The greens are great right now. Running about a 10, so med-fast. Smooth and running true. They are going to punch starting 10/2.

Lots of air traffic overhead, but nothing too bad.
I highly recommend right now.

What can I say about Alondra?! You have to know going into it that the course is always beat up, 5somes all over the place, and 5 hour rounds are the norm. If you experience anything positive, well than you just made out.

I played Monday, August 21st at 2pm. The course was pretty wide open. After getting through a slow 4some at the turn, we had the course wide open for the back nine. We finished at 5:45pm, so POP was great at 3:45.

The course is struggling. Tee boxes are ok. The fairways are a mix of hardpan, GUR, and spotty grass coverage. The rough is about the same. The traps we actually decent and playable.
The greens were HORRIBLE. 3-4 of them were sanded, 10 of them were crazy bumpy and slow, and about 3-4 were just 'ok'.

Again, anything above pretty bad here is a bonus. Today the POP was good, so I guess we made out, hahahaha.
I wish they could get it in the shape it was in around 2014-2015. I remember it being in great shape then.

Played Rio Hondo today, Sunday 7/30 at 7:40am, with 3 friends. Got out right on time. POP was just under 4 hours, which amazed all of us for a Sunday morning tee time.
Course is in overall great shape. Very lush, very green, and was a blast to play. The greens were a little bumpy, but still rolled true, with medium-fast pace. Fairways were great, rewarding good shots with extra roll. The rough was actually pretty thick out there. Might be the thickest I've ever seen here, but still very playable, and balls easily found. Bunkers had soft sand, and tee boxes were overall pretty good.

Highly recommend Rio right now. It was a fun day out there.

Got out for the first time in almost 4 weeks yesterday. Having a newborn takes a toll on the time needed for golf, haha! But wouldn't change it for the world!
My friends and I decided to play the Goose, since a lot of us haven't gotten out in a while.

Played the Blues, 6,500+, and a slope of 126, I think. We started exactly on time at 7:59am. For a sold out Saturday (no tee times we're available since the prior Thursday), POP was still a leisurely 4 hours. We didn't wait on anyone, and no one waiting on us. I guess 9 minute tee time separations make a world of difference.

The course is in spectacular shape. The only thing I could comment on is the inconsistency of green speeds. Some were really slow, and some were medium. But non were fast by any means. Might have to do with the overcast weather in the morning, and then clearing with sunshine a few hours later; but it was a dramatic difference.
Tee to green it was lush all around. The rough, while thick, wasn't too penal.
The bunkers looked hard packed, but when hitting out, the sand was soft.

All the recent reviews are spot on, and i highly recommend right now. If the Goose was closer, I could see playing it more often.

For LA muni golf, can't get much better than the Long Beach courses right now. Lakewood, El Dorado, & Skylinks are all great right now.

Played Lakewood today, with Kassper7 for our Round 4 Semi-Final GK Cup match.
4:20 POP which was great! I was assuming a 5 hour round, and was pleasantly surprised.
Course is in overall great condition. Still working on some construction to the clubhouse, but the new range and new bag drop are built. Looks great! Really impressed.
The tees are prob the worst part of the course. A lot of them are beat up, lots of divots, but still playable. I think only 1 or 2 are sloping and not level, but the rest are ok.
Fairways are lush with decent coverage. Bad spots here and there, but overall nice lies.
Rough is hit or miss - but very playable. Patchy in some spots, and just as good as the fairway in others.
The bunkers were hit/miss. Some good, some hard packed, some even had standing water. But still ok overall.
The greens where in great shape. Some "mean" pin placements weren't appreciated, but they rolled smooth, medium-fast speed, and held well struck shots.
Overall good shape and I'd recommend.

Wow. I am amazingly surprised by El Do today.
Tee'd off at 10am, as a single, paired up with a 2some and another singe; booked thru GolfNow, $47.99+booking fee.
POP was an awesome 4:15, never waiting on the tee, and no one pushing us from behind.
Had never experienced this before on an LA County course, on a semi-busy day. All I can say is WOW!!

The course is also in excellent overall shape.
Tees were a little hairy and growing. Lush, level, and probably due for a mow in the next day or two.
Fairways were great. Good coverage of above average turf. Plenty of roll on well struck tee shots.
Rough was good and playable. Thick in some spots, a little thin in others. But overall, very playable and not too penalizing.
All bunkers looked good (I wasn't in one today - shocker!).
Greens were good. While they rolled good, at med-fast speed, I think they are also due for a cut in the next day or two. Could roll really fast when cut thin. Not many ball marks, and decent surfaces to putt on.

I was really impressed by the conditions here. I was expecting decent, and got great conditions! And the POP was great to top it off. I would definitely recommend at the moment. One of my favorite parkland style golf courses in the LA Muni system.

Booked on GN, for $55. What a steal. This place is amazing. Could rival any top-tier club in the Coachella Valley.
Played the Championship tees (72.1/128/6698). I was the first one out, as a single, and played in 2:20. Started at 7am, and done by 9:20, on an extremely hot day. It was great. Never rushed, and no one ever caught up behind me.
Felt like the longest 6700 yard course I've ever played. Many par 4's over 400 yards.
While not many holes here stand out as ones to remember, the whole course is great. They actually punched and sanded the greens, and they still held shots, rolled true, and were very fast. The sign at the starter said they were running at an 11 on the stimp today.
Tee boxes are flat, level, and no divot damage.
Fairways are so lush and had great lies. No browning, or burned out areas anywhere.
Rough was about 1/2 inch thicker than the fairway, with very good lies.
Bunkers all had white fluffy sand, and easy to hit through.
Greens were punched about a week ago, sanded down too. But they still roll them when healing. They were the best aerified greens I've ever played on. Held shots, rolled true, and very fast.

I must say that I was very impressed with this place. It's in a 55+ community on the border of La Quinta and Indio. They pro shop was well stocked and staff was friendly. The starter said they are looking to turn completely private in about a year (semi-private now). When I finished 18, I noticed everyone here had their own carts, some of them really tricked out, haha!

Yes, I recommend even with the punched greens. Rack rate is about $125, but I booked the morning of, for $55. Had an excellent time!

Played La Mirada with criley_4way for our GK Cup Match. Played the Blues (69.1/117/6083) on a windy morning that turned into a decent day. A little on the warm side. POP right at about 5 hours. We were a 2some, match with 3 others, behind many many groups. Typical Saturday morning with a lot of golfers.

La Mirada is just ok. The conditions are just ok. It is what it is. If you've played here before, conditions are what I would expect. Not fantastic, not terrible. The greens that have heeled from aeration are nice, but some need some more time.

Tees - decent coverage, mildly chewed up. But still played ok. Some thin spots here and there.
Fairways - ok. Some had good coverage, lots of thin and even bare spots.
Rough - not to penalizing. Definitely playable, but also didn't hold errant shots. You'd roll thru to the other fairway on some holes.
Greens - Some were great, others good, a couple still healing. Overall were decent. Will get better with time.

Again, overall this place is average at best. I prefer the Long Beach courses, but they didn't have any availability when we wanted to play. It decent.

Played Navy Destroyer on Sunday, 4/32 at 10:38 with cobra1788 for our GK Cup match.
Played the blues (72.8/129/6780)
We went out as a 2 some, behind many groups of 4, so we joined up with the 2 some behind us around 3 or 4.
POP was ok, about 4:40, but it was a good pace for the most part, once we were a 4some.
Course conditions were really good.
Tee boxes, while a little hairy, were mostly flat/level, with good coverage, and good areas to hit from.
Fairways were really good. A well struck shot had some good roll on it, and even if it rolled into the rough, it was very playable.
The few bunkers I were in were decent. Not amazing, but not sub-standard by any means.
The greens were great. I heard they were punched 4 weeks ago, and really were nice. They are extremely large, with large undulations at Navy. Part of the course difficulty are the greens. Must have a good putting day to play well here.

Overall, course is in excellent shape, and had a good pace for a Sunday morning.
I enjoyed the GK Cup match with Bruce, and I look forward to my Round 3 match.

Wow. Played Navy (Destroyer) today, Sat 3/25 at 8:23am, with a 4 some and a 4 hour POP. Definitely impressed by course conditions.
Tee boxes are prob the most rough, but still decent. Some were a little tilted, but not anything too crazy. Very playable.
Fairways are immaculate. Good clean lies everywhere, good roll on well struck tee shots, and good overall coverage. Aestically they looked great too.
Bunkers are good. Most had decent fluffy sand, just a few with hard-compacted sand.
The greens are great. Sad to report they are going to punch in about 2 weeks. Most of you that have played here know the greens have severe slopes, but they rolled great, and held well struck shots.

Overall it was great. Still can't believe POP was right at 4 hours on a Saturday morning. Gotta treasure that on a public course in Southern California.
On a side note, the replica ship that used to be in the water on 9 has been moved to the grass by the parking lot. I thought something was missing from that hole.
Highly recommend.
