I last played AH about 3 months and said then that I would not likely play for some time. So I lied! My son in law and his brother, took me out to play here on Father’s day. The guys in the clubhouse and the starter are great and made for a nice start. The starter on the #1 tee had things well organized for a what was going to be a super busy day and we went off on time at 7:20.

The course is in nice shape right now and one could not complain about the conditions. Agree with the last 2 reviews. Fairways are lush and green. Didn’t have a bad lie. The rough was also lush and cut down just right. Bunkers are also in very good condition.

The greens are rolling good for the most part but bumpy on certain areas. You can see the whiteish flower beginning to grow on the poa annua and although a little bumpy, I still give them a good rating.

The layout is not one of my favs. It is not a long course but you cannot be spraying the driver on many holes. We finished in a little more than 4.5 hours. Could have been faster but waited on just about every hole and the group behind us fell way back, two holes behind. That’s the knock on this course, pace of play. Some of the fairways are narrow and trees come into play not to mention guys spending time looking for lost balls. It is what it is and unless you can get out real early, don’t expect a fast round.

Played Coyote Hills with my monthly neighborhood group on 6/11. Had a 10:20 tee time on a rather warm day but we had plenty of water and snacks to make it through. This is only my third time playing here and the other two times were scramble tournaments so this is the first time playing my own ball throughout.

Check-in was a little hassle. They were training a new person who was struggling to get the green fee correct. She charged me the premium rate of $75. I mentioned I was a senior and she had to correct the computer again. She charged me $56 where I mentioned I thought the senior rate was $50. No response so the more seasoned starter indicated that the $56 rate includes lunch and a drink. Wasn’t looking to have lunch after but didn’t want to go through this check-in hassle any further so I just paid it and walked on.

The course is in good condition with a couple of flaws. The fairways looked like many have been aerated a while ago but haven’t fully recovered. Not terrible but pretty thin so not at their best. I imagine they will be better in the upcoming months. Bunkers were hit and miss. One was perfect and yet another I was in was rock hard. The rough was in good shape and cut just about right.

The greens are excellent. Smooth, rolling fast, holding shots and in some cases provided back spin if it well. Very nice.

Despite the heat, I enjoyed playing here. Finished in in just under 4 hours. The cart associate came by a couple times so we were not without refreshments. A pretty hilly course with many elevation changes from the tee boxes. It plays relatively short and there are a few holes that do not require hitting a driver. We played it from the blues which is only around 5,600 yards but just because it’s a bit short doesn’t make it easy. Target golf on some holes so if do hit driver, don’t spray it. Recommend and looking forward to the next time.

Up once again this year to play in my college faculty/alumni tournament on 5/28. I love it up here and was so looking forward to playing. For the first time ever that I have seen this course in less than great condition. The course opened in mid-May which was much later than they usually open but the cold weather continued and delayed the opening. Talking with the course staff, even after opening they had some snow and ice which impacted the greens.

The fairways though were great shape. Great lies if hitting from the fairway. The rough however was very thick. Ridiculously so. You could easily lose your ball just a few feet off of the fairway. They just haven’t been able to put a mower on the rough to cut it down. Bunkers and tee boxes were in great shape.

The greens which are always in great shape, were beat up. The areas on the greens that were in good shape where slow. Again, they tell me lack of sunshine, cold weather has prevented the greens to mature.

Aside from the thick rough and below average greens, it is still a great place to play. I am giving BC a mulligan as I know they will get things in order soon. The staff in the clubhouse and in the restaurant are great and always accommodating. This is not a difficult course with generous fairways and large greens so you can score well but it so much fun to play. It is definitely one of my favorites.

On a trip up through No. Calif, we stopped at Links of Rolling Hills. Was checking weather.com as it had been raining but was supposed to stop around 10:30 so we got a tee time at 11:20. Well they were a bit off on the weather as we ended up teeing off in light rain and cold wind. It finally cleared up around the 6th hole and was beautiful on the back 9. Paid the rack rate of $50 and as a 2 some, we finished in just under 4.5 hours. Really slowed down on #8 as we came to a complete halt. We waited over 15 minutes on the tee. The group behind us got very impatient and encouraged us to join the 2 some ahead of us. I said no as that wasn’t the reason why it got slow so I guess that ticked them off and they decided to call the clubhouse to complain. Hey chill out! Their complaint resonated throughout the course as many of the course staff became aware. Course staff came out to move things along and talked to us on the course. Great staff work but was unnecessary. The back 9 moved just fine and the group behind us fell way back. Great playing back there guys!! Ok enough

The course is in good shape. Fairways are recovering from the winter but still great lies in the fairways. The rough was thick but playable as I don’t think they were able to cut it with the rain that has come through. You cannot be wide here with your drive. Very thick native areas border all of the fairways and balls that go in there are lost. Bunkers were in good shape. Despite the rain, they played well.

The greens were in great condition and rolled very true despite the rain.

I really like playing here. It’s a beast and easy to lose balls but is still fun to play. Not a typical course with numerous trees. To the contrary, no trees but rolling fairways. I played well on this day but only because I didn’t go in the native areas. FYI, they also have a nice casino and we stopped in to have a few beers and drop a few at the tables. Look forward to coming back. Definitely recommend!!

A little late with this review as I played Woodcreek on Sunday 5/26 with an old college friend. We were making our way up to a tournament and stopped in SAC area to visit friends and play golf. Bought a golf moose deal for $59 for 2 and had an 11:16 tee time. For a holiday weekend, it was pretty crowded but we played as a 2 some until joined by a single on the 5th hole. Not much waiting on any groups and finished in just under 4 hours.

The course is in pretty good condition overall. Fairways were green and lush. Not many bare spots and really nice lies. The rough was thick and lush. No issues with the tee boxes but many of them could have been mowed. Bunkers were not very good. The ones I were in were terrible. Not even sand but hard, compacted dirt. Best to stay out of them.

Greens were nice and rolled great. Average size greens but some undulations.

The layout is not my favorite. A muni layout really. Some blind shots especially #5. Fortunately, the single who played with us knew the course otherwise we would have really struggled. IMO, the back 9 is nicer with holes that have some nice mature trees that meander through some nice homes. Although the course is in nice shape and worth a stop to play but not sure if it will be on my can’t wait play again list.

Up in No Cal for the holiday weekend to play a few courses and then a tournament. Always look forward to this trip and first stop today was Boundary Oaks. I play here a couple times a year as I have family up here to visit. Got out early walking and was second out following another single in a cart. Beautiful morning and no wind to speak of. Recognized GK’er Bgarcelon who works here and went over to say hello. Nice gentleman.

BO is in great condition right now. About as good as I have ever seen it. The rain has helped I am sure but the fairways are excellent and I noticed there is no kikuyu. What happened? I asked Bgarcelon who mentioned the weather is cool now and kikuyu goes dormant. As the weather warms up, it will return. Was not aware of that. Regardless, every lie was great. On the thin side but still excellent. Tee boxes were good. The rough was green and lush and not difficult to get out of. I was only in 1 bunker and it was in good shape. Good firm sand.

The greens were holding well and rolled true. These are really nice greens and as the previous reviewer, sixpez indicates, you do not want not want to be above the hole. Putting downhill here is a challenge.

Great improvements here, including the grill/bar. Very nice. Folks here are always great here as well. Thoroughly enjoyable round today finished in about 3 hours. Course is a bit hilly but not crazy. Hopefully, they can keep it nice throughout the summer.

Played DW Firecliff for the first time in the GK outing with Leef2020, Rudyclub and Brady and had a great time. Great weather out there with a little wind. The short of it is I thoroughly enjoyed this course. It is a challenging track and what makes it challenging are the many bunkers. There are quite a few. I have played Doral in Miami a number of times which is said to have over 100 plus bunkers. This course exceeds that I am sure and I was in quite a few. On the plus side, the bunkers were in great shape. The fairways were incredible. Lush and great lies out there. It’s been a while since I have played fairways this nice. The rough wasn’t too troublesome for me but you still had to hit it clean to get out of it.

The greens were also great and rolled true but were very hard. Never found my divot marks on the green. They weren’t holding either unless you caught it real clean. Very tricky with the undulations on many of the greens. I found them hard to read and therefore had a few 3 putts.

A great time playing here and loved this place. Can’t comment on customer service as I had no interaction with course staff. The restaurant closed rather early also. Regardless, I hope to get back out here sometime soon. Definitely recommend.

Decided to get out to play today even though it was raining in the morning. It wasn’t raining hard so I knew it would clear up but for whatever reason, I really enjoy playing in the rain. Got to the course about 10:00 am, paid $25 walking and off I went playing solo. A guy in a cart was at #1 and was teeing off also but no one was out on the course.

Not much to add differently from the previous review. Fairways were ok, nothing great. A couple of fairways were just aerated and were a mess with big holes and residue cores laying everywhere. The other fairways were in ok condition. The rough was hit and miss. Some were just fine, others were very thick and unplayable really and other areas we hard pan. Bunkers were mud as a result of the rain.

The greens were rolling well. #1 green has had some patchwork done but still rolled ok. This green has always had issue though. The rest of the greens were in good shape and rolled nicely.

I have always enjoyed playing here as they have some challenging holes but the course conditions have always kept me away. Let’s see if the rain and the potential improvements will make a difference going forward. I hope so!

Was invited by leef2020 to play with his regular group on Monday 4/29 with a 2:16 tee time paying $42. Great rate for this course. A lot of people out there but can see why. This course is great shape right now. Breezed through the front 9 in about 2 hours, never waiting but it slowed down on the back. Sill finished in about 4. 5 hours.

Fairways are great. Didn’t have a bad fairway lie out there at all. The rough was thick and penal. Hit the ball a little heavy and the rough would easily turn the club face. Tee boxes were excellent. Full coverage and freshly cut. Bunkers were excellent also. Good firm sand.

The greens are excellent. A bit hard, not holding and not real fast but they rolled great.

This course is a challenge. Potential for birdies on some holes but can see double bogeys on others. Particularly on the back 9 where some fairways are tight. Only played here twice and the back 9 has kicked my butt each time. Still a beautiful track with some great views. Look for a good price online and go for it! Highly recommend.

Was invited out to play Brookside #2 on Friday. Had 9:00 am tee time and was expecting a full house and a 5 hour round as usual but noticed it wasn’t very crowded at all. In fact found a parking spot close to the course which is rare. The starter said we could go out earlier so we did. Although waiting on the par 3’s with 2 groups deep, we still finished in a little over 4 hours.

The course is in good shape even with kikuyu fairways. Not much roll out on drives but you did get a good lie. The rough was not too thick/penal but it was still better to be in the fairway. Bunkers were in good shape. Some were damp but very playable.

The greens were very nice. Rolled true, were soft and were holding all shots. The greens are not tricky and pretty flat really.

Had a good time out there and a good lunch after. The course is pretty flat but it’s not an easy course even though it only plays about 6200 from the blues. Definitely recommend. Perfect weather and a course that is in pretty good shape, what’s not to like?

Our regular group played Morongo on 4/24 and was thrilled as I have never played the Legends course before. One person in our group bought a Groupon for here and comp’d the rest of us. Very nice of him to do so and therefore do not know what they charge. Beautiful day though. A little warm but no wind. Had a 9:30 tee time and we were a bit late (5 minutes) getting to the first tee and the starter let us know it. He wasn’t happy about it. Oh well! No one was in front of us and no one pushed us from behind so we finished in just about 4 hours.

I really enjoyed this course. The fairways were in great shape so complaints there. No bad lies. Tee boxes were a bit beat up though. Interesting about the rough as on the front it was not much of a factor. On the back however, it was thick and we were losing balls just off the fairway. I felt the rough on the back was pretty unfair. Way too thick. Bunkers damp but no issues getting out.

The greens were slower than looked and they were also very hard. You had to hit it clean to hold it. Little weeds were growing on the greens which didn’t give them a good look but they still rolled true. Looks like they are about due for aeration.

A fun day out here at Morongo at a fun course. I thoroughly enjoyed the layout. A nice mix of long and short holes with a few doglegs. It is challenging but also fair with pretty generous fairways. Large bunkers come into play on just about every drive so just getting up there and swinging away doesn’t get it. You need to think the shot through. Thumbs up for this course.

We played the Arroyo as day 2 of our tournament. On another beautiful day, we had a shotgun start and got off right on time at 8:00 am. Much like Siena, this is a very pretty golf course. Many of the holes meander through the neighborhood of some very nice homes. The driving range is hassle to get to. We had to be driven to the range by the marshals if we wanted to warm up. Took about 2-3 minutes to drive there.

Fairways were excellent. Great lies in the fairways which were cut down. The rough was thick and penal. A ball landing in the rough was hard to find so that’s how thick it was. I usually do not have any problems hitting out of the rough but my playing partner did. He hated it as did many others. Slowed down play a bit and many spent time looking for balls just off of the fairway. Bunkers were fine and were filled with good, firm sand.

The greens were fast. Starter told us they would run about 10.5. They were pretty hard and did not hold good shots very well and definitely not holding shots hit out of the rough. They seemed faster actually but you could see some small weeds starting to grow in them. Was told they were going to aerate the green the following day and it looked like they were ready.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course. A good mixture of long and short holes and very fair with generous landing areas. Not sure what they charge here as we played as part of a tournament. Heard some folks pay up $100 on the weekend. That’s a bit steep for this course. Regardless, if you can get a good rate, I would highly recommend.
