Played here Wednesday 9/12 with an 8:30am tee time. Pace of play was a bit slow with several slow foursomes in front of us. It took us 4 hours 40 minutes to complete the round. But it didn't seem that long. The weather was perfect: High 70's with a little breeze. I really like this course. It has a lot of variety, with some interesting holes. The overall course is in very good shape. Tee boxes are fine. The fairways are mostly lush, with some areas that are thin or somewhat bare. But, for the most part, if you are in the fairway you will have a very good lie, with plenty of cushion under your ball. The rough is spotty on the fringes of the fairways. Some areas are quite penal, with others being not penal at all. I was in two greenside bunkers. They had nicely raked, firmly packed sand. They were easy to hit from. The greens were running medium fast, and were very smooth. They were great. They're going to be punching the greens next Monday and Tuesday, so you'll only have a few more days to enjoy the current conditions. I highly recommend playing here before next Monday.
Played Balboa at 6am on 7/30. My partner and I breezed through in 3 hours, walking. Overall the course is in decent muni shape. Clearly, they have been watering the course quite a bit to combat the heat. The tee boxes were fine. Fairways are a mixture of nice grass, hard pan, and clumpy or bare areas. But, for the most part, if you were in the fairway, you had a decent lie. Not a great cushion under your ball, but enough grass for a good strike. With all the watering they're doing, the rough around the fairways is quite lush. Normally, the rough around the course is not too much different than the fairways. But right now the rough is 1 to 3 inches, and is a bit difficult to hit from in many areas. This is what rough should be. But it has not been the norm at this course, until now. The two greenside bunkers I was in had very good, firm sand. Very nice to hit from. The greens were very receptive to approach shots. They were quite soft and ran medium speed, with little to no bumpiness. For the $20 senior walking rate this is a good deal.
Played Olivas on Thursday mid-morning 7/26 to escape the heat in the SFV. The weather was great. The morning clouds never cleared, making for a pleasant - although a little humid - golf experience. I haven't played here in about 8 months. What a treat it was to play. Our group kept remarking all day how fabulous the fairways were. These are the most lush, beautiful fairways I've played all year (10 out of 10). Everything about this course is in great condition. Greens were medium speed and held shots well. The only thing that gave me some trouble was the tight lies just off the greens. You had to be very careful not to dig your leading edge into the turf as it would stop your club abruptly. Other than that, I have no issues. This is a must play course right now. Not only for the conditions and weather, but it is a very fun course as well.
Played here 7/20/18, Friday morning at 9am. The weather was perfect, in the low 70's with a mostly gentle breeze. The course is in very nice shape. Fairways are great. Nice cushion under your ball. They are a little firm, but great to hit from. Tee boxes were mostly level. The rough could be less than one inch or around 2 inches, depending on where you ended up. But nothing too penal. The one greenside bunker I was in had plenty of firm sand. Getting out was not a problem at all. The greens were medium speed, rolled well and were receptive to well struck shots. I really enjoy this course. It is in fine shape. I highly recommend it.
Played ANGC Monday (7/16/18) at 6:30am as a threesome. Pace of play was excellent at 3 hrs. 20 minutes. Overall, the course is in very nice shape. The fairways are firm, but have excellent coverage. They are nice to play from. Tee boxes were fine, with the exception of hole 17. The tee box had been aerated. So it was covered in dirt/grass plugs everywhere. The greens were smooth and held shots pretty well. My only complaint is that they were on the slow side. But they held their line well. I was in two greenside bunkers. One had plenty of firm sand. It was good to hit from. The other had 1" of firm sand over hard dirt. Not good to hit from. I got the Monday/Tuesday senior rate of $65. Along with a gift card I had ($30), it only cost me $35 with cart. That is a great rate. I do think the rack rate of $85 is a bit high for this course. But that, of course, is only my opinion. ANGC is in good shape to play right now. I recommend it.
Walked on as a single and teed off with a twosome at 7:20am Friday 5/4. Finished the round in 3 hrs. 45 minutes, with very little waiting on the group in front of us. Overall, the course is playable. The fairways are aren't lush by any means, but they are fine to hit from. The rough is not penal and is spotty; ranging from 1/2 inch to 2 inches. Tee boxes are a bit chewed up, but you can usually find a decent spot to tee up. I was in one greenside bunker. The sand was plentiful and firm. No trouble to hit from. The big disappointment is the greens. They punched and sanded the greens about 3.5 weeks ago. But the greens were PAINFULLY slow and quite bumpy. It took me nearly the entire round to finally hit the ball hard enough to get it to the hole. I hit several putts that were tracking toward the middle only to be bounced offline and slowed down by the many bumps on every green. I would wait another 2 weeks for the greens to properly heal if you want to play this course and be able to putt well.
Played MPCC on Friday, 4/28/18 with an 8:30am tee time. Pace of play was good at 4 hours for the first 18 holes. We played 27 that day, covering all three nines. The best part of the course right now is the greens. They were fast and rolled smoothly, even though they look strange with a few different colored grasses. The big thing right now is the fairways. They were all verticut to de-thatch about 2 weeks ago. Right now they are thin, yellowish and quite sandy. I was disappointed with them. The pro shop told us they should grow back in nicely in another two to three weeks. Although they are playable, I would rate them a 4 out of 10 at the present moment. The bunkers were filled with a lot of sand but were consistently damp and heavy. A number of the tee boxes were closed and several different tees were clumped together. It was still enjoyable to play, but I would wait a couple of weeks if you want normal MPCC conditions.
Played Simi Hills on Monday, 4/23. Teed off at 7:45am and finished our round in 3hrs. 30 minutes in perfect weather. Overall, the course is in very good shape. Tee boxes are fine. The fairways are mostly green and lush. Every shot from the fairway had a nice cushion beneath your ball. The 3 greenside bunkers I found all had very nice firmly packed sand. The rough is a bit spotty. Some areas have 1 to 2 inches of lush grass. Others are spotty with some bare areas. Some areas on a few holes have 18 inch high grass for those tee shots that were very errant. The greens were excellent - medium/fast speed and very smooth. There were a number of areas that were being manually watered in the fairways. But they didn't pose much of an issue. We played the blue tees and found that about half of them, mostly on the back 9, were grouped with the black tees. Very fun course in very good condition. I highly recommend it.
Had a tee time for a twosome on Monday 3/5 at 8am. Got out early at 7:45. We had the course to ourselves. Finished walking in 3 hours and change. Perfect weather. Let me start off by saying the course is in typical winter condition for a muni. It is very playable and for $19 walking senior rate, it's well worth it. The tee boxes were unlevel in several instances and had no grass or enough grass, depending on the tee box. We played the blues. Fairways are thin and hit and miss. But for the most part, if you're in the fairway you'll have a good to decent lie. The rough is short and not penal. I was in three bunkers today. All of them had good sand. The putting greens were a bit of a disappointment. They were medium speed and many of them were bumpy. It didn't affect too many putts, but it was noticeable how often our balls would bounce on the greens after striking them. Enjoyed our time on the course.
Had a 9am tee time on Monday, 2/26 as a twosome. It was about a 4 hour round, even though we were following a "slowish" threesome. Well, the conditions of Simi Hills have deteriorated substantially since I was last here in November. We played the gold tees. Every tee box was in below average condition, with patchy grass and MANY bare dirt areas. The fairways are DRYYYYY. They have not been watering them much. There are many bare areas in the fairways, as well as some thin grassy areas. Everything is very thin and hard. The best part of the course right now is the bunkers and greens. I was in two greenside bunkers. They both had nice firm brown sand. They were a pleasure to hit from. The greens were fast and smooth. Putting on them was great. They would hold approach shots that had a good amount of spin. But other shots would roll toward the back of the green. I really like this layout, and the challenge. But the conditions of Simi Hills right now are below average. We played Balboa golf course in the Encino area last week (a L.A. city owned course) and the fairways were in better shape than Simi Hills. For the $22 senior walking rate, it was worth it. But the drought is very evident here.
Played MPCC mid morning Monday 2/21/18. Perfect cool weather with only a slight breeze. Overall the course is very playable. I played the Ridgeline and Canyon Crest nines. Tee boxes are fine. Although some were a little hard to get the tee in the ground. Fairways are in nice winter condition. They are somewhat green, but also brown. However, lies in the fairway are good. Fairways are a little thin, with a fair amount of rollout. The one greenside bunker I was in had very adequate firm brown sand. The greens rolled well and were medium fast speed. There were a couple of greens that had been lightly punched and sanded, but didn't have too much affect on line or speed. The rough can be quite thick and green in many areas. Some areas are spotty. But mostly the rough is about 2 to 3 inches and lush. I enjoyed my time on the course.
Played MPCC mid morning on Wednesday, 12/27 as a single. I was partnered with two great guys. One was a retired LAPD homicide detective and the other a retired FBI agent. Very cool. Overall the course is in good shape. Most of the grass is dormant, with a mix of green and brown. As stated earlier by another reviewer, they have dyed some of the areas a light green. However, it doesn't affect play. The fairways are not thin. They have a nice cushion to hit from. The rough is short, with some areas having longer grass. Generally about 1 - 2 inches in length. I was in one fairway bunker and one greenside bunker. Both had very adequate sand that was on the firm side. Easy to hit from. The greens were quite fast and rolled nicely. Only a few of the tee boxes were a little shaggy, but mostly they were fine. The course is very playable and enjoyable.
