Played this afternoon, using a free birthday round, riding for $16. The starter shack had a sign stating the green speed at 11'-6". The greens were fast and firm. I like that, but in the windy conditions only good shots were rewarded and others ran off. They did roll great; true and fast. We played the white tees and they were all in good condition without a lot of divots and nice and level. Good grass coverage from tee to green. The rough was mowed to a consistent height, approximately just over an inch. I was in a few bunkers and found them to be just okay as there seemed only to be a shallow layer of sand over some hard pan in on or two, with better coverage in another. Good pace of play at just over 4 hours.

Played yesterday (Sunday), 1:00 tee time, $45 riding. We had a foursome of Tony, Charles, and George, all from the Meetup.com Los Angeles Golf Group. Not too much to add to TBD's review. In fact, they have yet to run a mower over the fairways. All that new sod? It needs water. I just saw thousands of dollars of new sod that was just laid down poorly, then dried to the bone because of the lack of water. No reason for cart path only because of the total lack of maintenance from tee to green. The changes are nice, though. I cannot give the course a rating at this time because of this. I hope the course gets some water, because it will not be course without it. I can't recommend this course at this time.

Played today, Friday, 1:04 tee time, $29 riding. The course is as green and lush as ever. Tees were level without a lot of divots. The fairways were cut tight and most shots would roll out a ways. The rough was very lush, but not deep. I was in the greenside bunker on hole 3 and I found it to be a thin layer of soft sand over hard pan. The greens were all very nice; a mix of bent grass and poa annua. They were on the firm side but high shots would leave a ball mark; shots hot with spin would stop as expected. I would guess the speed around 9'-9.5'. No beverage cart, so plan accordingly. I totally recommend this course.

Upon hitting the practice green, I noticed that they had just verticut (two directions). I spoke to the greenskeeper who told me they just hit both the Creekside and Ridgeline nines and were moving on to the Canyon tomorrow. All greens were to receive a very light sand top dressing and were getting rolled. The greens were in great shape and the light maintenance did not affect the roll in any negative way. Overall, the course is bright green and looks absolutely fantastic. Too bad I seem to have trouble at times making good ball-first contact on those spongy fairways. That's not the fault of the course, though. Mike and I golfed the whites and they were in great shape for the most part with only a couple that seemed to be just a little uneven, but not a problem in any way. The rough was super lush and wayward shots had a chance to stop before going into a hazard. Great customer service and fantastic conditions throughout will keep me coming back.

Played today with the GK Meetup. Fairly soggy conditions overall as it was raining overnight and into the morning hours just before teeing off. There were a couple of sprinkles as the latest storm was clearing out. This is a well-maintained course and I would like to come back with better weather. I thought the greens were a good speed: medium-fast and mostly rolling true. There were some subtle breaks and it was challenging to read the speed and break just right. Tees were mostly good: level and not too beat up. The fairways were good overall; however, it was a mix of wet and wetter areas. It looks like it was draining okay for the most part without a lot of deep standing water. Of course some areas were roped off and we played it as cart path only although I don't remember seeing any signs or any course personnel telling us. Good times with fellow GKers.

Played today, using a discount tee time on teeoff.com. $32 riding; paid another $5 for a small range bucket, almost not worth it (30 balls, worn balls, mats, and tees). Maybe a larger bucket split between a couple of golfer would be fine. The practice green down by #1 Lakes is a good representation of the greens on that course; however, the practice green up by the range tends to be a bit slower. The course in general was in great shape. No bare ground, with somewhat dormant Bermuda grass and perennial rye mixed in. Some areas of rough could be deep enough to hide your ball, where fairway lies were very nice. The course seems to ride out the rain nicely. The last rains came through here on Monday (four days ago), and there were no overly wet areas. Greens ran true and medium fast. Good times! I recommend this course.

Played today, using the over 55 discount ($65, including cart). The course is in decent condition, with only one very saturated area just left of 17 green. As far as all the recent rains go, the course must drain rather well. The fairways and rough were mostly dormant Bermuda grass, cut low most everywhere. Great rollout on poorly hit tee shots, but tight lies as you approach most greens. Tees were mostly lush and level. Greens rolled fast and true with very subtle breaks. There was plenty of soft, white sand in the few bunkers I was in today. POP was about 4.5 hours, okay for a holiday of sorts (to paraphrase the previous reviewer). Go out and play, Monday and Tuesday are reduced rates for 55 years or older and nearby residents.

Got out today with Tony and the two Chucks from the Meetup.com group, first group at twilight 1:00 p.m., walking for $29. POP was good for this course at about 4 hours. Some soggy areas in the fairways throughout the course, notably on the holes around the low lying areas (1, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 17, 18). Not much roll out due to the recent rains. Rough was somewhat longer and also was well moisturized like everything else. Greens were medium fast speed, soft, and a little bumpy at times. Also, there are a lot of small spots of fungus on many of the greens. Not too terrible, but enough to detract from the appearance not to mention it could affect your roll. Tee boxes (we played the blues) were mostly level and had decent coverage, except for the par 3 16th, which was being over seeded and markers moved forward. I was not in any bunkers, but they seemed fine and Charles hit a great shot from the bunker in front of 14 green to about a foot. It was a picture perfect day and nice to be out in the afternoon and watching the sun sinking low in the west from the tee on 17.

Played today with one of my buddies, Andy, using GN, $55 at 12:10 p.m. It was kind of crowded around the first tee from about 11:30 to about 12:20, when we teed off. Maye a lot of groups with approximately the same times, so we went out a little late. They paired another single with us at the last minute, right after we hit our tee shots. I would say it was a little disorganized around the first tee, but not a real big deal. The course was cart path only due to a good amount of recent rains and wet turf made the course play a little longer. Most of the fairways were in great shape with only a couple of saturated areas and a good amount of turf to hit from. It's dormant, mostly kikuyu and Bermuda grasses. Rough was cut nicely, just at about an inch and a half, with good coverage, so no issues there. Only a couple traps had standing water (12 and 13 greenside bunkers) and other than that, I would say the sand was in great shape. The greens were soft but fast enough that you had to be careful not to run putts way past. We saw the beverage cart about three times in four hours. Everybody from maintenance personnel to the pro shop and starter was very friendly and super considerate when you got over a shot. At $55, it was a super good deal.

Played today in soggy conditions, walking at 12:30 for $21. This course has a small stream running through it and several of the fairways have water that is continuing to drain or pond up. We did not even receive a lot of rain today, so I can surmise the course does not drain well. Lots of saturated turf throughout the course. The greens were soft, yet medium fast and rolling true. Multiple unrepaired or poorly repaired ball marks on most greens. Some greens have some oil damage from a leaky mower, but it was not bad enough to affect putts; hopefully, it will grow back just fine. The fairway on hole 15 was very thin; you could say it was almost one third bare ground. Many tees were very wet, even though there was room to place the markers away from the wet areas. Go figure. Cart path only, but I was walking anyway. Great POP at 2.5 hours, thanks to the weather keeping many folks away.

Played today with fellow GKer, DKnight. Got a discount time on Teeoff.com, paying about $34/player at 11:32. We were sent off about 10 minutes early, but only to hit and wait behind a course full of golfers. Cold and damp conditions throughout. The greens were soft and on the slow side; also, they were kind of bumpy at times. There were a lot of poorly repaired ball marks and footprints almost everywhere. Almost no run out on most drives. Balls hit short of greens did not run up, sometimes just plugging into the wet turf. Good coverage of grass most everywhere. The deep rough has been whacked down for the most part, except for a couple areas, so wayward shots were findable/playable. Tee boxes were mostly level and had good coverage. We played the white tees and several were moved forward quite a bit, notably holes 13 and 17, which were like playing the forward tees. Bunker sand was plentiful and well groomed. Overall, I think the course probably plays better in the summer.

Played today after the morning rain. Teeoff.com tee time $38 at 11:39. Got to the course a little after 10:00, checked in, and was pretty much sent on my way immediately. I was given a choice to play the Vineyard despite having a tee time for the Lakes course. Starter said it was wide open on the Vineyard and not so much on the Lakes. That said, I noticed the greens were still recovering from aeration. They rolled mostly smooth and a little on the slow side; starter had them listed as a 9'-6", but they might have been a little slower. Fairways and rough were dormant kikuyu and Bermuda grasses mixed in with pockets of some fescue. Not too thin, but not super lush either. There was plenty of well-groomed sand in the bunkers, but they were a little wet due to the morning rain. Tee boxes (I played the white tees) were level and had good coverage. Pace of play was about 4 hours and some change after running into the back of some slower groups.
