My regular group decided to play Diamond Bar on 6/20 and had a 9:00 am time. When we checked in, the starter sent us to the tee box early as the tee box was open. With a couple of minutes, there were 3 groups waiting behind on the tee waiting. We followed a 4 some who left us in the dust. Man, they played fast! The group behind us fell way back so we pretty much had the course on our own. All us walking, we finished in just under 4 hours. I’ll take it.

The last time I was out here, I found the course so, so. I was pleasantly surprised to find the course in much better condition. Fairways were really nice for a change. Some were dry but still overall in nice condition. Especially #12 which was always a bad fairway. The tee boxes were nice as were the bunkers. Sand was a little crusty but ok.

The greens were really impressive. Smooth, rolling faster than I have ever seen them and not many ball marks.

We had a very enjoyable day despite the heat and the constant roar from the Pomona freeway traffic! It’s a muni so you get what you get. It's usually very crowded and not always in good condition but today was different. They have made a number of improvements to the driving so perhaps other improvements are on the way?

Had to take care of some personal business out in San Bernadino and was looking for a place to play after. Decided on OV as it has been a long time. I actually played here not long after it opened in the early 90’s if I remember correctly. That’s how long it’s been and couldn’t remember many holes but do remember there were not any homes out there at that time. In fact nothing was out there. What a change.

Starter sent me out solo and followed a slow 3 some which was fine. I wasn’t in any hurry but was able to bypass the groups ahead on the back 9 and finished in a little over 3 hours. But what a nice golf course!

The layout is not real difficult but is a lot of fun. Fairways are generous and are in great condition. I didn’t have a bad lie. Some dry areas out there but not many . The rough was in great shape and very playable. Bunkers were hard and damp.

The greens are in great shape. Pretty soft, were holding and were rolling true. Some undulations making putts difficult to read.

I was very impressed with this course and cannot say enough good things about it. In addition, they have a real nice driving range and practice area. I just wish I lived closer to this course as I would make it a regular place to play. Definitely recommend!!

Played with Gary00 and Leef2020 in a GK Guru outing on a warm but thoroughly enjoyable day. This was the 2nd time I have played here and enjoyed as much as I did the first time. A fun course to play with elevation changes, nice fairways and really nice greens and we scooted through in just over 3 ½ hours.

Fairways are Bermuda so we got some roll out. Some dry areas out there with some tight lies but overall they were in great condition. Bunkers were firm but found it easy to get out of. Not much heavy rough so missing a fairway didn’t hurt you.

Greens were in great shape. Soft, holding good shots and rolling true. I called them sneaky fast in that it was hard to believe they would roll out as much as they did.

I really enjoy playing here and am looking forward to playing here again. Definitely recommend!! And a huge thank you to Johnny for getting this one for us!! Gracias!!

Had an appointment today with my periodontist out in La Habra who is very near Westridge so I decided to give it a go. Got there around 9:15, $35 riding the blues and the starter got me right out. He said I could join a twosome that he just sent out or I can go it alone. Wanted to join this twosome but they clearly had no interest in me joining them. Fine. So I put on the headphones and went solo.

Pace of play was moving but hit a snag on the back 9. There was a fivesome up ahead that was moving pretty slow (didn’t know they allowed 5??) and passed them up on 12. Finished in 4 hours for a single which is pretty slow.

Last time here was about 8 months ago and the conditions then were great. Different story today. What in the world has happened to this golf course? Very dry, weeds growing in the fairways and in the areas near the greens, many bare spots. Even the kikuyu grass was starting to die out. The tee boxes were better and some were going under repair. The rough was nice and playable where it wasn’t dry. Was in a couple bunkers and they were a bit damp but fine.

The greens were the best thing about this course. Not real fast but rolling true. As the previous reviewer wrote, it would be nice if folks would repair their ball marks. I fixed many ball marks on each green.

Overall and with the exception of the greens, I was disappointed with the conditions. This course needs some work.

Made it up to Bailey Creek for our annual Chico State Alumni tournament. Was so looking forward to it and was not disappointed. Played two days 5/29 & 5/30 with beautiful weather and playing with some very good friends.

Not much to add from my previous reviews because it is in great condition every year. The course just opened from winter on April 19 and the fairways were in excellent shape. Tee boxes also in great shape. Bunkers in great shape. The rough was thick however. Very thick. On two holes you could not see your shoes if you were standing in the rough. That’s not good in my opinion but they are going to address it.

The greens were rolling nicely and about a “10” but were very hard. Held a good shot but it had to be a very good shot. Had to adjust. A couple of the greens were still in recovery from the winter but that should clear up soon.

Cannot say enough good things about this course. Spent two days of golf and I didn’t want it to end. Not a real difficult course but it is a beautiful setting and is never crowded. The guys in the clubhouse were all great as were the folks in the restaurant. Highly recommend!! If you are ever up in this area, you must make it a place to play.

Since given the go to rate private courses, thought I would add Canyon Oaks to the list. You need to be invited to play here by a member as I have been told but I have played here every year for the last several years as a college buddy of mine is a member. On a very warm day, we had an 8:45 tee time.

I have never played here where the course conditions weren’t excellent and today was no exception. Fairways were in great shape overall. Some were a bit dry but not many. Tee boxes were well kept. Wasn’t in any bunkers but my friends who were tell me they were damp and firm. The greens were very nice even though they were aerated about 3 weeks ago. I have played here however when they were very fast.

This course is a challenge. They tell me it’s one of the toughest in No. Calif. I believe it. From the blues, it’s just under 6400 yards but it seems to play much longer rated at 70.5/139. It's hidden in the canyons with many trees and elevation changes and many beautiful homes lining some of the fairways. My only complaint is the golf carts. They’re old and a bit beat up. Very friendly guys in the pro shop. Met the current pro who is very outgoing and is very accommodating.

I know I’ll be back again later in the year as a group of us get together a couple of times a year but if you ever get a chance to play here, do it!!

Up in No. Calif. to play in a tournament but stopped to play a couple of courses on the way. First stop is the Links at Rolling Hills. I see I was the last one to review this course almost 2 years ago? Had a 11:00 tee time with an old friend and was joined by a very nice guy from Seattle. Pace of play was about 4.5 hours but seemed much slower. We waited on many holes and come to find out, three groups ahead of us was a family playing pretty slow but they also had their dogs out there. Really??

The last time I played here, we were told it can get very windy but at that time it was not windy and just very warm. This day however it was a very different story. Very comfortable weather but at least 20-25 mph winds. Really made a difference. Despite it all, this course is in very nice condition. I saw a previous review from sixpez who described it as a beast. Well described! It is!!

Fairways are in nice condition. Lots of roll out. Tee boxes in good condition as well. Bunkers were hard, mainly damp. The rough was thick but playable . The greens were in great shape. Hard but still holding good shots. Tricky though with many breaks/undulations.

This is a links course. No trees and totally exposed to the elements. Fairways are generous but missing a fairway, could mean you end up in native areas which is thick so bring some extra balls. Not a lot of flat lies out there because of the hilly terrain but I think it is a fun course. I enjoyed playing here and want to give it a go again next time up. Nice folks in the clubhouse and there is a casino next door with a nice lodge. Definitely recommend.

Played the Ike on 5/18 as part of a charity tournament for MSAC. A cool day for us and a very well organized tournament as it always is. We played a combination of blues and whites on this day but really, it’s a challenge from any tee box.

The course is in great shape right now and is such a difference from the “regular” courses I play. No brown spots or thin lies and no kikuyu fairways out there (nice!!) - all green everywhere. Fairways were as nice as anything I have seen in some time. Great lies and not many divots. The rough was thick but not penal. Bunkers were a bit damp but overall in great shape as well.

Greens are rolling very nicely. They held good shots but are tricky to read. Smooth greens with some undulations.

I would play this course so much more but do not want to pay the pricey weekend rates. Heard you can get a good rate on Mondays and if true, give this place a try, but bring the “A” game. A great day out there on a great golf course.

Played The Goose with GK Guru’s leef2020, breangolf and the host johnnygk. It was also on the same day of the Calif. State Amateur qualifier so we had to expect very nice conditions. They were but much more difficult course. Played the blues which I normally do but it played much longer especially with relatively strong winds. Despite it all, it was still a lot of fun and finished in just over 4 hours.

Tee boxes were manicured but hard. Fairways were in great shape even though many of the lies I found were tight. Was in a couple of bunkers and they were in great condition. The greens were not real fast but were rolling nicely. Have seen them much faster here. They were hard however and on some holes it was best to hit it short and run it on to the green.

Highly recommend playing here. Pace of play is rarely an issue here as it always seems to move well. Another great GK Guru outing and thanks to Johnny so setting it up. Also thanks to Ross Fisher for hosting us. Customer service was great but its always great out here.

Joined sr129 to play Glen Ivy on the morning of 5/8 and was stoked as I had never played here before and we got a $42 per golfer on Golf Moose. Drove up and noticed a lot of construction going on there and Steve tells me they are redoing the driving range, practice putting green and other areas. Not very crowded on this morning so check in was simple enough. We waited a bit for a couple of groups ahead of us to go out but off we went around 7:45. As a 2 some, we followed a foursome but never really waited much. Still got around in about 3.5 hours.

A thoroughly enjoyable day playing with Steve but equally enjoyable was this course. A fun course with some tight holes but most of the fairways are fairly generous. A good combination with some short and long holes with some doglegs. Back 9 has more elevation changes. Fairways were in really nice condition. Some tight lies out there but overall good coverage. Bunkers were in nice shape also but were damp. No problem getting out of the sand.

The greens were the highlight. Really nice! You could see they recently verticut but really had no effect on the roll as they rolled perfectly and still held good shots. Tough to read though as there are some very subtle breaks.

Heard there is a new owner here and from the looks of things, it’s on the improvement. Highly recommend and am looking forward to getting out there again sometime soon.

Was invited by Leef2020 to play Tijeras on 5/8. Had a 12:08 tee time paying with a TeeOff.com special for $52 and were joined by a couple of nice guys. Never played here before so was really looking forward to it and it was a thrill to watch Lee play some great golf. Great round!

The course is in great condition. Love the layout. Tale of two nines however. Front 9 is relatively flat with some doglegs with homes lining the fairways. Back 9 has no homes and there are significant elevation changes. It was nice to have someone with me who has played the course as there are some spots you need to avoid.

Tee boxes were very green, flat and in great shape. Fairways were also great. Some tight lies but not many. Overall good coverage. The rough was lush and not difficult to play out of. Bunkers were just fine. Good, firm sand. Greens were rolling real nice. Not fast but true.

Pace of play was just over 4 hours so we didn’t experience any long waits. Really enjoyed playing TC. The rates can be a bit pricey but there are online deals and if you find some, I definitely recommend.

Was invited to play SA by a good friend on 4/26 with a 9:03 tee time. Beautiful day out there. We checked in and was joined by a single. Very nice young man and enjoyed playing with him. He was new to the game and was still learning but he kept up with us. For a weekday, there were a lot of golfers out there and we finished in about 4.5 hours. Not really very fast but for Santa Anita where 5 hour rounds are not uncommon, we’ll take it.

First off I have to say the clubhouse remodeling is finished and it looks real nice. The clubhouse has wood floors, nice golf equipment, clothing and other items. Impressive.

So away we go off to the tee and interesting that the blue tees were about 5-10 yards behind the blue markers on just about every hole which means it played as long as it can. Never seen this before and it made a difference. Tee boxes were in good condition. Fairways were fine and we got good roll out. Bunkers are always in good shape here.

The greens however, were pretty slow. Only one word that I can think of to describe them - grainy! The only good thing I can say about these greens is there were very few ball marks.

Always enjoy playing here but same old, sorry greens. One day I will play here and find the greens in good shape. One day!
