Out early this morning with the wind and rain but before the Hurricane Golf Junior tournament. The pace of play was just over three hours. The course is in pretty good condition after the heavy rains earlier. The tee boxes were somewhat damp but provided good footing and were trimmed well. The rough was pretty long for this course and filled with a lot of clover - made finding shots in it an adventure. The fairways were nice and green and provided for roll if your shots were hit on the right trajectory. They are still hit and miss with numerous bare spots and clumps of mixed grasses - but nice to the eye. The traps were for the most part free of any water and looked damp - we didn't play in them today. The greens are in great shape and rolling nicely. Most had very few ball marks but were surprisingly not holding shots well? I guess with the kids out there that they greens had not been watered except by the rains? Still a good local public course to play a quick round on anytime. Staff always friendly. FYI to the local Temecula area golfers - the LEE husband and wife are now members here! HA ha

The original eighteen here at Menifee Lakes continues to improve each time I play it. The tee boxes are very level but the par three holes had many divots that needed attention. The fairways were much improved with an occasional thin lie on several holes - but they seemed to be in better overall shape than the Lakes. If your ball finds the fairway it will get good roll. The rough was scarce and easy to hit from if you found yourself in it. The traps were thin, hard and damp still from the rains. The greens were a little quicker than the Lakes but not in the same shape - a few of them were splotchy with different colored grass(es)? There are many trees that had to be removed after the recent storms. The staff is truly excellent and very helpful at this course - a real asset. The rates are very reasonable and pace of play at four hours!

The rains have softened the course up some but it is still in good shape. Tee boxes in good shape with a few not real level. The fairways were in nice shape with thin spots on many of the water holes making for tight lies. The rough was not too thick where it was present and was easy to hit from. The traps were still pretty damp and in need of sand. Greens were in great shape coverage wise and rolled at medium speed - many had ball marks that were not repaired by THOSE lazy inconsiderate people who should stick to Mulligans! Pace of play was under four hours. The staff is always excellent here. Nicely maintained course with very reasonable rates.

Played early this am with no frost delay - even though the first green was very white and crunchy? The sun did come up quick and thawed out the course by the third hole. The course was in pretty good shape considering the non stop rains we had in the area the week before. The tee boxes were a little thin but in good shape. The rough was very dense from all the rain and fairly thick. Fairways were still thin and soggy in a few places but not bad at all. The traps for the most part were in very good shape - there were several that still needed to be groomed and have the standing water pumped out. The greens were in great shape from the recent rains and probably from having very little or limited play on them. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The pace of play today was a little over four hours. My one suggestion for management would be to consider flipping the front/back nines to speed up the pace of play. The first hole is a difficult par five which really does make for a slow start with groups backing up to tee off. Great views on a very challenging course with reasonable rates if you can find or use a deal.

We were the second group out this a.m. but passed by the first group (thought we paid to watch them play) after the seventh hole - we finished in three hours. I think we were home when the first off finally finished!! The course is still very damp from all the rain, but in pretty good shape. Tee boxes were a little thinner than usual but okay. The fairways were hit and miss with many thin spots on several holes. The bermuda is dormant and the other grasses are coming back nicely. You will find a bare spot here and there with some very soft fairways and greens. The most improved part of the course since my last round here were the sand traps and the sand quality. The traps were free of the usual weeds and grasses - most were raked very well also. The rough was fairly thick when present but playable. The greens are in GREAT shape right now with hardly any ball marks, smooth and rolling pretty quick! The rates are similar to others in the area with great deals available thru Costco. Recommended for most!

We were the first group out this morning and made the turn for our second round in around 4.5 hours as a fivesome. The entire facility is just top shelf from the people to the course. The practice area has everything you need to work on your game with top quality practice balls. The entire course by far has the best coverage of any I can remember playing. Tee boxes maybe could have been cut a little shorter but were nearly perfect. The fairways were fantastic with not one thin or bare spot to be found. The rough was also in great shape but slightly thicker than other courses I've recently played. The traps in the fairways and green side were the best groomed BY FAR of any course I've played. The greens were near perfect with very few marks and rolled nicely - we did notice they slowed as the day went on and the moisture started to fall from above. The area offers great views of the valley and surrounding hills with several holes lined by nice custom homes. The military copters and jets put on a free airshow for us by flying at a low altitude and very high speed over the course. The pro shop is top notch and the restaurant offers excellent food as well. Definitely worth the long winding drive to experience the BEST groomed course I've played in the last several years!!!

Frost held up the start times until 8:30am - bummer! The pace of play suffered from the shotgun start, especially with the twosome we got lucky enough to be paired with!! The tee boxes were a little thin and the grass on them was nearly the length of the rough. The fairways were somewhat thin with a few nearly bare areas - the rain did a job on the course conditions. The rough was not too thick and consisted of much more kikuyu grass than I've remembered? The greens here are always very good and today they were in great shape - they were very smooth, fast and with nearly no ball marks! The traps had not been groomed since the rain on Friday and many had large puddles still. The staff is always very good and did a great job with the shotgun start. The course is fairly narrow with a few blind shots and many of the holes have trees that are in play even off the tees - the leaves from the Sycamore trees will make finding some shots impossible at times. The course is very picturesque winding through the hills with the constant sounds of freeway traffic, sort of like Green River in Corona. There are usually good rates found on the discount sites and they do offer stay and play. The rain last week should also improve the overall conditions for the next couple weeks.

Played here on a nice warm wind free morning Thursday, with the GK group for the first time. Great to finally meet Johnny and a few of the GKer's whose reviews I read on a regular basis. This was the first time up here in about a year for me. The staff is always very friendly and helpful from pro shop to the grounds crew. The first tee was actually dry and firm that day - it was the first time ever I had played here over the years that this was the case! The rest of the tees were also nice and dry with a few being fairly firm, probably in anticipation of the storm that came in that evening. Most of the fairways were a mix of different types of grasses, but were in good enough shape and provided for good lies. The rough was fairly thick on most holes and helped keep off target shots in play. The traps were nicely groomed and trimmed with the usual damp firm sand found in the area. The greens were in great shape and provided for a challenging round of putting as they dried out and sped up! The firmness of most greens made it difficult to stop shots from rolling out and off on a few holes. The serenity of Cross Creek and natural beauty add to the experience to this somewhat remote location. There is a lot of wildlife and great views to offer for those that make the drive up the hill. I definitely recommend that everybody give Cross Creek a try as it is well worth it!!

Quick 3.5 hour round in the cold and wind this morning on a course that never disappoints. Staff is always top notch and professional and facilities are very nice as well. The tee boxes are generally level but several were very firm - making it hard to place a tee in them. The fairways are in great shape with a few tight lies on many holes, but very playable. The rough was not too thick but long enough to keep shots in play. Sand traps were well conditioned but a few were very wet - making play from them difficult. The greens were holding shots nicely but seemed very bumpy with some slower than others - made for a frustrating round on and around the greens. The scenery and wildlife on this course add to the quality of it - I always recommend!

Early morning round in under four hours with some waiting - not bad! The tee boxes are in pretty good shape with a few not real level from the gold sets. The fairways are starting to go dormant with the cooler days and limited sunlight. The fairways seem to be getting much tighter than in the past - great for good roll if you are in them. The fairway sand traps are very hard and thin. I found the green side bunkers in great shape with nice sand and well groomed. One suggestion would be for the course to replace the poor old broken rakes they have around the course. The rough is not too long but fairly thick and made looking for your ball an Easter egg hunt. The greens were in great shape with very few ball marks but were much slower than usual - even for the time of the day? They have put the seventh hole green back in play finally - it seems much smaller than before but is in nice shape. The staff here is great! Everybody is always in a good mood and very friendly. Always recommended for a challenging round on a well maintained course with great views!

Quick sub four hour round on a nice cool morning. Tee boxes here have always been a little rough and some are slightly sloped - but all are very playable. The fairways were for the most part dry and tight with a few damp spots and a couple are nearly dirt. The rough is not too thick and you can still play from it without much trouble. The greens are in excellent shape - even the few here that are questionable at times are in very good shape. The greens are very quick and rolling nicely. The traps are in very good shape also - most are somewhat compact but very playable. The staff is generally happy to see you and always professional. The warm fall weather has helped keep this place in very good shape - hopefully the winter rains will come soon.

The course is in probably the best shape I've seen it in since I began playing it. The tee boxes did need to be cut - they were very long and some slightly thin. The fairways has very good coverage and were for the most part green. The traps were in nice shape too - even though some needed a little TLC and too be raked. The greens were very fast for our early am round. You could still see the work that had been performed on them recently but it did not affect the putts at all. The greens did not hold shots well and were guarded by very penal thick kikuyu grass on most holes! Very frustrating to have to search for your shots around the greens and then deal with the kikuyu!! The staff is always pleasant and helpful. Definitely a course to play if you are in the area.
