Early am round taking 4 1/2 hours due to slow playing partners! The course was in very good shape today but very damp on a few holes. Tee boxes were are in good condition and the warm weather has filled in the bermuda fairways nicely. The rough was much thicker than it's been recently and very damp on a few holes. The greens were beautiful green with the best coverage I've seen for many years. The length of the greens was also much longer than usual surely due to the heat. The greens rolled well but quite a bit slower and were somewhat bumpy. The many traps I found were nicely groomed with damp hard packed sand. The 18th fairway greens were in slightly better shape than my last visit here - they still need work. The maintenance crew had the creek on 18 also shut down with work around the pond area - bummer. The staff is always great and the food is pretty good at the 19th hole!
Finally played this course after wanting to for the last 25 years. The pace of play was at about 4.5 hours which was expected. The tee boxes were all level with good coverage and in great shape. The fairways were also in very good shape with most being covered with kikuyu - always popular near the coast. The fairways were cut short but the ball sat up well enough for good contact. The rough was slightly longer and thicker but one could still make a good stroke if you had to hit from it. The traps were well groomed, slightly damp with fluffy sand and very playable. The greens were very firm and not holding all shots into them - most shots would bounce and roll unless the approach shots came in from a high angle. It took us a hole or two before we started playing the roll on them. The greens were fairly quick and very large (some of the largest I've played in a while). Most all of the greens were tilted toward the fairway which made getting a shot to the back difficult. I found with the overcast skies and cool breeze that an extra club or two was needed on most holes. The staff was excellent and it was nice to see the marshal out on the course a few times. The sun finally arrived on the last hole and made for some great photos. I think the green fees are reasonable for what the course offers and would definitely recommend a round here!
Early morning four hour round with a couple of real characters - brought my wife along for the cart ride. She wouldn't have believed me unless she saw them for herself - really nice guys though. The course is in great shape with the fairways in probably the best shape I've seen them in. The rough was very thick and in perfect shape. The tee boxes were all nicely prepped with one note that the 15th tees have been moved up quite a bit with the new casino construction. The 14th fairway hole also narrowed near the green with the earth moving. The greens were all in great shape as well but maybe slightly slower than usual. The water features throughout the course have seen their levels dip maybe a foot or more - possibly due the use for construction? The traps were all in great shape with heavy white wet sand in the few I found. The rates are extremely reasonable for the conditions and what this course offers!! The staff and facilities are near top notch and highly recommended! One note - ran into The Hemet Golf Guy when making the turn. He said it was a practice round before his cup match later in the week so look out Dave.
Early 4+ hour round on a fairly good course. Most tee boxes were in okay shape with a few slightly thin. The fairways have actually stayed green since my last visit here and have also softened up somewhat. Most fairways were cut short with the exception of the 16th where I found my drive exactly in the middle of the fairway in thick 4" rough?? What's up with that?? Maybe somebody forgot to mow that section! The rough was mostly thick throughout the round and made it very difficult to find balls. The greens were softer after the maintenance but very bumpy with MANY balls marks! The staff is always great and the vistas add to the experience also. The course has improved but still has some way to go before it is nice. The place was very busy which is encouraging to see!
Early four hour round in cool cloudy conditions. It's amazing how nice the greens have firmed up since the aeration a few weeks ago. The greens are very nice and nearly free of any ball marks. They are holding shots pretty well - but seemed quite a bit slower than usual. The tee boxes are in okay conditions with a few being a little thin. The fairways for the most part are still in good shape with good coverage on most holes. The rough along many holes is getting fairly thin, with the exception of a few holes (especially 18) where the rough consists of weeds and foot long brush. The finishing hole should be one of the better conditioned holes on a course in my opinion - after all it is the last thing you'll see during your round. The fairway bunkers on 18 are terrible and the surrounding rough is the worst it's ever been. The green side trap I was in on 17 was like granite and in desperate need of work! The staff has always been welcoming and in a great mood even at six in the morning. Still recommended for a reasonably priced fairly well conditioned course in the Temecula area.
The course is in fairly good shape with right now and very busy this Sunday. We completed our round in a little over four hours being one of the first few groups off. The tee boxes are all in good shape with a couple of the short holes in need of some aeration - the ground being so hard that a tee could not be placed in the turf. The fairways have very good coverage but an abundance of kikuyu grass - the stuff seems to be taking over on many golf courses lately. The rough was thick and longer than usual, add the kikuyu and shots from the rough are VERY difficult. The kikuyu is not dense enough in many areas and the ball will sit down just enough to make getting your club on it very frustrating. The traps looked like they were in good shape with visible work going on. There are still a few trees down on the course that need to be removed. The greens were in nice shape and rolled well. The break on many greens here is very deceiving if you've not played the course before. The staff is always friendly and it's nice to see the same faces year after year. The course has some good specials and is usually quite busy. The location makes for a quick round if it's not too busy.
Early am round just under four hours. It's been a year or more since I've been here - I remember why now. The clubhouse was locked up until after 7am - we had a 7:08 tee time. The gentleman that was running around by himself this morning was friendly but really needed help. The locals know the routine here and were nice enough to share it with us. The course itself is looking fairly shabby as I remember it looking. The fairways are drying out and everything is starting to die with the warmer weather. There are a few types of grass covering most areas of the fairways with a lot of roll on well struck shots. The tee boxes are on the downhill slide too - a few were so hard I could not even put a tee in them. I actually snapped a tee trying to do so - just glad I didn't slice my hand! The rough was fairly thick maybe a few weeks back, but that too is drying up and going away. The traps were hard, wet and loaded with pebbles. The greens were the best part of the course by far! They too were very firm and most were extremely slow which made for a frustrating round of three putts. The water features and layout of this place are great - it really would be nice to see somebody bring this place back to what it was in the beginning!! The new carts are great but the GPS settings will shut your cart down when you are no where near protected areas and when you're on a cart path??? We actually thought that the course might be getting ready to shutter their doors after seeing one car in the parking lot upon arrival - I suggest those with vouchers to use them up soon!
First time back here in a couple years and pleasantly pleased. The pro shop is being remodeled so the makeshift shop was a room filled with the bare necessities and of course a cash register. The tee boxes were mostly level and had decent coverage with a few divots on the shorter holes. The fairways were in good shape with much more kikuyu grass than I remember from my past rounds here. The ball sat up well in the fairways and they were soft enough for good play allowing for plenty of spin into the greens. Some areas along the fairways were pretty thick and soft but did save errant shots an kept your ball in play. There are many narrow fairways lined with over hanging trees - so straight hitters do have an advantage. The bunkers looked well groomed but damp - didn't find any today. The course doesn't really have that many bunkers which seem to come in play. There are water features that can add strokes if you haven't played the course before. This course has some elevation changes and also a 600+yard dog leg par five with a postage stamp for a green. The greens were in great shape and quickened with the day. I heard the pro shop say the greens had been vericut and sanded lightly earlier in the week? The greens held shots well and were in the best shape I've seen them in my visits here. A few of the greens are sloped away from the fairways making low approach shots impossible to stop on the green. The place was super busy when we completed our round around noon - not a parking spot available. The locals really support the course and many of the players seemed regulars here. I thought the rack rate was almost twice what I would expect to pay for a similar course. Recommended if you like older tight courses with plenty of trees!
Early morning Saturday round just under four hours - great! The staff is always good. Tee boxes are almost all fairly level and generally have good coverage throughout the round. Fairways yesterday were in very good condition with some roll if you could keep your drives in the short stuff. If you ventured into the rough you found longer and much thicker grass. The fairway rough was for the most part about the same length as the green side rough. I was in a few traps (always a complaint of mine here) with very different conditions. Green side trap on the uphill par three 4th hole was filled with wet heavy sand covering about an inch of hard mud in the middle of them!! The fairways bunkers were damp around the edges and rock hard in the middle - didn't even need to rake some since no footprints could be made by walking in them. The greens are in very nice shape and most held shots very well. The greens sped up as the morning warmed up but they were are slower than in any other morning round I've played here. The views from a few of the holes make the experience more enjoyable than other local courses. The rack rates are getting closer to what most would say in reasonable - be prepared to give them a [credit card] now to book a tee time - new policy I was told as I had never EVER been asked before in the previous twenty years of play here.
After three hours and only nine holes completed....I remembered why I don't play here very often!! The course itself is in very nice shape - just wish management had a clue. Maybe they need to start groups off every ten or twelve minutes or properly marshal the course? Tee boxes were in very good shape with good coverage, a couple were a little firm. Fairways were nice and green in real good shape but did not have nearly the usual roll with the thick grass. The rough was exactly that - rough! Like most courses after all our rain the rough is very thick, lush and green. Wayward shots became an Easter egg hunt and hitting your ball from it was a challenge. The bunkers were well maintained but very crusty go top? Hitting shots from the bunkers was not difficult but the traps seemed to be crusted over from watering? The greens were great - they held shots well but putted slightly slower than in past rounds. The staff here is always friendly and great to talk with. There were a couple holes on the back nine that have been taken over by the geese - nice to look at but they leave poodle size droppings on the greens which makes putting impossible.
Absolutely love this place - the rains have been very kind. The staff and facility great as usual. Tee boxes in great shape with nice coverage and little to no divot damage. Most all of the fairways are very thick, lush and green!! There are a few holes near the water features that have very tight lies thanks to the coots who have taken them over. The rough is extremely thick and it was hard to find shots that found it. The traps around the greens were damp still but had nice sand in them. The fairway bunkers I found were damp and a mixture of sand and dirt - made it an adventure. The greens are looking nice and holding shots fairly well with some roll out. The green speeds were slower than other visits to the course. The scenery was as good as I've ever seen it - nice to look at between shots!! Rates are very reasonable and pace of play was right at four hours. Definitely worth the drive!!
It has been many years since I've been here - used to play it on a regular basis. After driving by on the freeway and seeing how green it was I decided to give it another chance. The regulars were off before the sun came out with their walkers. It's nice to see that there are still courses that allow walkers on the weekend and that people actually do still walk a course. The tee boxes were in okay shape with a few being slightly thin and others somewhat sloped. The fairways were a mixture of grasses but had pretty good coverage. The rough was pretty thick and lush which was great for stopping wayward balls - finding a ball in the rough was fairly easy though. The traps were mostly hard, rocky and filled with what appeared to be river sand? The greens started out pretty quick and slowed as the round progressed? We finally realized the grounds crew was out watering the greens pretty heavily in front of us? Not good for the paying golfers today! I guess they were trying to soften them for their aeration that is scheduled to start tomorrow. The greens here are much smaller than most courses and today they were very FIRM - even with all the rain these greens did not hold shots at all (they definitely need aerated). The creeks that run through the course were still quite full and filled with brush and logs. The area surrounding the course provides nice views of the hills and homes. About half of the holes have an elevation change while the other half are flat. The first three holes on the back nine might be the most three frustrating holes in a row anywhere. The staff here is great! The facility is really showing its age - the place REALLY needs a face lift. I would give the the course at least a couple weeks before giving it a try if you enjoy smooth quick greens. They are offering some good rates this week after the aeration is done.
