Played Brookside #2 on Tuesday, 4/25. I was originally scheduled to play as a single joining a threesome on the #1 course. But that fell apart and I declined to play as a single between 2 fivesomes (duh). So they put me with a threesome on the #2 course. As a senior, I paid $18 walking. Overall, the course is in pretty good shape. The fairways are mostly lush with some thin or bare areas, but quite playable. Most of the teeboxes were fine. But a few were not level and had divot damage. The rough is mostly good, about 1 - 3 inches thick, and could be penal. the bunkers were in good shape with plenty of firm but nice sand. With the exception of one green (which was badly marked and bumpy) the greens were in nice shape. They held approach shots well and rolled medium fast. The course is very playable now.

Walked Knollwood Monday (4/10) as a foursome at 8am. We had a 5some in front of us. But they played pretty quickly, and only had to wait on them a few times for a few minutes. Completed our round in about 3 hrs. 45 min. Started off windy and cold. After about 5 holes, the wind died down and the weather warmed up, turning into a very nice day for golf. The course is more interesting than most of the LA city muni courses around (This is an LA County course). Numerous holes have elevation changes, with numerous dog legs and trees lining the fairways.

The course is in quite decent shape, pretty good for a county owned public course. The fairways are somewhat thin and blotchy. But they are easily playable. Tee boxes were level and lush. The one sand trap I was in had very nice soft sand. The other bunkers also looked quite good. The greens in the early part of the round were a bit slow. But became more consistently medium fast over the bulk of the course. With tough pin placements today, there were a lot of hard breaking putts. But they generally rolled well, and were mostly smooth. It was an enjoyable round for $30 walking as a senior.

Went out for a quick 9 holes on Wednesday afternoon. Great senior rate of $9.50 for 9 holes, walking. I was disappointed at the condition of the fairways. It doesn't appear that the rain we had this season made much of a difference. The fairways are thin and hardpan in areas. The coverage is a variety of grasses. Sometimes you would have a good lie in the fairway and sometimes it would be bad. Tee boxes and greens were in good shape. The greens were smooth and medium speed. Wasn't in any bunkers. So I can't speak to their condition. The rough is clumpy and inconsistent. I don't expect much from Woodley condition-wise. But I don't see a lot of difference between this year and last, even with all the rain we had.

Played here on Monday, 3/27 after an email invitation to a "Member for a Day" event. It was a shotgun start at 12:30pm. Great pace of play at just under 4 hours. The course is in wonderful condition. With everything so green in the area, some views were breathtaking. This course is certainly a challenging one. But it is worth playing if you can get on. It has a variety of holes that will challenge your game. Water is in play on numerous holes and there are plenty of bunkers awaiting your errant shots.

The tee boxes were immaculate; very green and lush. The fairways were green and firm but with just the right amount of cushion under your ball. Every fairway lie was excellent. The few bunkers I found had plenty of firm sand. Although the greens had been punched and sanded 3 weeks ago, they were very smooth and medium fast. Other than on one particular hole where there was some sand that slightly affected the roll of the ball, the previous maintenance had no negative effect on putting. The rough was perfect; very lush, consistent and about 2 inches or so in length. This is a great course in great condition. Play it if you can.

I played with the GK group on Monday. It was a great day for golf. I can't really add much to what Mitch and Kevin have said. The course is in wonderful shape. The fairways were still a bit soggy in several areas. Once the course thoroughly dries out, and we've had some sun for a little while, this course will only get greener and more lush. A definite must play!

Played as a walking threesome on Monday, 2/13. The fairways were quite wet in many areas. The fairway grass is blotchy. You get some decent lies, and some muddy lies. Fairways are in fair winter condition. We played lift, clean, and place all day. The tee boxes are in decent shape. The two bunkers I was in had good sand. The greens were the best I've seen them. They were lush, green, and rolled medium fast. For a quick Monday round using the walking senior rate of $20, it was OK. There are several very large trees that have been uprooted and have fallen down on a few holes.

Played ANGC on Wednesday afternoon 2/9/17. Weather was perfect and service was good. Played with the afternoon rate of $65. I was joined with a very nice twosome and a single. Pace of play was fine at 4 hours 15 minutes, with very little waiting on any hole. Overall the course is in good winter condition. Except for a couple of the par 3 holes, the tee boxes were lush and level. Greens were quite fast and rolled smooth. They were mostly firm but did hold well hit shots nicely. It was a difficult day of putting as many of the pin locations were on or near slopes. The two traps I visited had very nice soft sand. The fairways and areas near the greens are very tight. The fairway grass is not very green (typical winter grass) and is thin. Although if you were in the fairway you would nearly always have a good lie. This is a fun track and quite playable right now.

Played Rustic on Tuesday, 1/10/17 mid-morning. After a slightly soggy start with gentle light rain, it turned out to be a nice day. Temps were 50's to 60, and dry after about 11am. The greens were running pretty slow for the first 9 due to them being a little wet. They sped up in the afternoon. They rolled nicely, and, as usual, they were difficult to read. The bunkers were in good shape, with plenty of sand. Tee boxes were mostly lush and green. The rough is spotty, with some longer grass, but mostly clumpy with some bare areas. The fairways were disappointing. I don't mind the yellowish color. That is to be expected with winter conditions. However, the fairways are VERY thin. There is little to no cushion under the ball. There are some areas in the fairway that have clumpy grass or no grass. The boundaries of the fairways are very clumpy and have many bare areas. Although playable, the fairways need more grass. It was an enjoyable and challenging round.

Played MPCC on Thursday, 12/22 with a 10:48am tee time. Pace of play was fine at 4:15 for 18 holes. Through the 4th hole, the wind was really howling. It was blowing 25 to 30 MPH, making even putting a real challenge. The wind gradually starting dying down after the 4th hole. By the back 9 there was only a gentle breeze at most. It turned out to be a beautiful day. Winter fairways have come to Moorpark. They are fairly brown and a little thin, but very playable. The rough, greens, and tee boxes are very lush and in great shape. The greens were rolling smoothly and were medium fast. The only complaint with the greens is the numerous unrepaired ball marks. The two greenside bunkers I was in had plenty of sand. They were a little damp and firm from the rain we received overnight. That was to be expected. I enjoyed the round and will be back.

Played here Sunday mid morning, 8/14. Perfect weather; low 70's with a nice breeze. The course is in great shape. Other than some of the tee boxes on the par 3's having quite a few divots, the course is fantastic from tee to green. The fairways are like a carpet. If you are in the fairway, you will have a great lie with a nice firm cushion to hit from . The rough is also in good shape, not too penal, about 1 - 2 inches. The sand in the bunkers I was in was very nice to hit from. The greens were medium speed and smooth. This is a great time to play this course, especially with the heat in the valleys. I really enjoy this course. It's fairly short. But I enjoy using different clubs off the tee. There are plenty of short par 4's, with many choices off the tee. I highly recommend Buenventura Golf course.

Played Olivas Links Friday morning at 8:10 am. Getting right to it, the course is in very good shape. Can't complain about a thing. Tee boxes are fine. The fairways are very nice, with good coverage and a nice cushion under the ball. Greens rolled smoothly and medium fast. They held well struck shots nicely. Can't speak about the bunkers, but they looked very nice. With the cooler temperatures in Ventura and the current conditions at Olivas, this is a must play.

Played the Valley course on Sunday afternoon, 7/17/16. with a very nice twosome. I have been aware of the water availability problem here and the poor playing conditions. I played here about three weeks ago, and though not in great shape it was very playable. However, in my opinion, it's becoming more unplayable, and this may be the last time I play this course. The tee boxes, greens, and greenside bunkers are in good shape. But that is it. This course has always been a real challenge due to narrow fairways and trouble everywhere. However, with the rock hard fairways and many areas of dirt in the fairway, not to mention zero rough, keeping your ball in play is even more difficult. I hit numerous good shots that ended up in very bad places or lost just because of the conditions.

I shared my concerns with the guy in the pro shop. He agreed with me. He told me there is a plan to install the plumbing necessary to obtain and distribute reclaimed water. But that won't be until 2018. I don't see RR lasting until 2018. What a shame.
