Late review - looking for a quick inexpensive round, so El Prado was the logical choice. Staff is always very accommodating and never have a problem getting out. Course conditions were about what I expected, consistent with the prior review.

Greens being the best part of the course. Fairways had areas which need attention, but most of the lies I had were fine. Only when you miss the fairways do you have serious condition issues. The two greenside bunkers I found had well maintained sand, good coverage.

Because I do not have unrealistic expectations, I am rarely disappointed. Enjoy playing here because it provides good solid basic golf at an affordable price.

First off at 6 am on a blustery morning. While I am not a fan of playing in the wind, it does keep the frost away ! Actually it was rather pleasant out, about mid 50's, but the wind made it feel colder.

Course was in decent condition, not great, but everything nice enough to make it enjoyable. One of the things I enjoy about this course is the very unusual fact that it has no par 4 holes over 400 yards, which now as a senior, fits my game much better, yet I can still play from the "tips" Despite that fact, the course has adequate length, at least for me. (All the par 3 holes are fairly long as are the last two par 5's)

Greens were nice, but again not great. That is about how I would sum up the entire course. Good, just not exceptional. Always able to get out early here and the staff is always very accommodating. Just a very enjoyable place to spend some time golfing

With the South course closed for a ladies tournament, I expected it to be crazy crowded this morning, but perhaps because it was the first time the temperatures have been in the 40's since last spring, it seemed to keep the crowds down a bit.

I sure did notice how much shorter the ball travels in these colder temps. Course is in nice shape, greens rolling very true and about 12 on the stimp. Fairways, bunkers excellent, rough still could use some attention.

Having the "extra" light in the mornings really helps, but that will be short lived. Nice to finish early leaving the entire day to perform all the "honey do list" which never ends.

There are not many public courses I have not played in Southern California (Unlike Keith who has played them all !) so was excited to play Cherry Hills for the first time. I had low expectations, and I must reveal even they were not met. Aside from the general conditioning of the course, this course provides very limited interest. The holes are very redundant, only the length of the hole varies.

The greens while not great were by far the best part of the course. Fairways had decent areas with grass, but also numerous bare areas. Many placed where the grass was not mowed and it was like being in the rough while in the center of the fairway. The bunkers I found had lots of sand, but not well maintained. Tee boxes were scruffy as well.

I don't wish to offend anyone, but playing here was somewhat depressing. Everything was so poorly maintained, the houses adjacent to the course on many holes were in terrible condition. It just felt like a course would look just prior to being closed, in an area which was being foreclosed.

The staff was great ! The price on a Golf Moose voucher was a steal ($32 for 2 players with cart) which was the primary reason I decided to play here. Despite the low cost, ease of getting out and around ( 2 hours 15 minutes) it's highly unlikely I will return. Even so, I am glad I made the trip because even the worst of golf courses provides lots of fun !

Looking for a geographically friendly course, I knew I would be able to get out at Tustin, as the staff is always accommodating and early morning tee times are not usually too difficult to secure.

Beautiful weather, mild considering it's November. Hard not to enjoy an easy pac round without a lot of players around. Round is overall in good, not great shape. Greens rolled nicely, but a little slow for my taste, Bunkers are excellent, which was good because I was in a bunch of them. Not really much to add to the prior review. I play here occasionally because it's not too far from home and easy to get out, but agree, tends to be on the pricey side.

I was surprised that it had been over 3 1/2 years since I'd last played here. Always enjoyed this course, as I find the holes fun, interesting, and love the fact there are no parallel holes.

Condition overall was quite good, with the greens being the best part. They rolled well and were faster than they appeared. Fairways had good coverage. Bunkers were hit/miss. Tee boxes are kind of "chewed up" could use some attention.

I think the best compliment I can pay a golf course is that when you play absolutely awful, and still enjoy the course - that speaks volumes. Staff was great. Green fees are a bit steep, certainly compared to the local competition.

Sixteen years since I last played Camarillo Springs. No so such because I dislike the course, but rather because of geography. So on my return home from the Mission Clubin Lompoc, took advantage of a Golf Moose deal which also allowed me to play a round with my brother who lives in Topanga.

While never a great fan of this course, I always enjoyed playing it. Greens were far an away the best part of the course. Truth is that they were the only really good part of the course. Fairways are thin, rough spotty, bunkers thin with very little sand, tee boxes were some good - some not so good.

Had a 8:00 am tee time but was able to get out 30 minutes early and pace was 3 hours 20 minutes, so I liked that. Back nine the winds came up - didn't like that ! Fun round, brought back many fond memories, except that after 16 years, somebody added a lot of yards to the course without changing the yardage on the score card ?????

First time I have played this course ! When I make the 4+ hour drive to this area, I always play La Purisima. and why would I not as that is one of the very best and personal favorite golf courses. But with a great deal on Golf Moose, decided to give the Mission Club a try. The course was better than expected. The overall condition was excellent, except for the thin greenside bunkers and some areas in the rough.

We teed off about 10 minutes earlier than our scheduled 10:40 am tee time behind the men's club. To my surprise and delight, finished in 3 hours 45 minutes. Not Bad ! Perfect weather, so it was a pleasure to be outside on such a beautiful Halloween day. (Oh how I love living in Southern California)

I enjoyed the course and found it very playable, although I didn't play very well. That said, it would be hard for me to pass playing La Purisima, so this could well have been a "one and done" for Mission Club. However I do recommend playing here as the staff was great, condition very nice and if you get the Golf Moose deal, go for it !

I rarely play golf unless I can secure one of the first times off in the morning, but best I could get was 7:30 am. (9th group out) I fully expected it would take forever, and at times it seemed that way, but in truth we finished in 4 hours 15 minutes. (I'm just not used to playing in much more than 3 hours max, so I concede to being spoiled)

The greens were excellent. Far better and quicker than I could have hoped for. Fairways also much better than anticipated. Traps had lots of sand (Too much actually) fluffy and easy to bury/plug. Tee boxes were a mixed bag, some good - some just OK.

I used to always play Lakewood from the "tips", but those days are gone! The blue tees at 6729 are all I can handle now. Particularly the par 3 holes ! This is a solid traditional layout which provides enough challenge without requiring you to hit "miracle shots" to hit greens in regulation. Wide fairways allow you swing away without much fear of penalty or obstruction. Very appropriate for this length course. Best part ........ $16.50 to play. Gotta love those senior rates .

Kudo's to our new superintendent. It has been just one week since the greens were aerated and they are nearly completely healed. A little slower than usual, but they rolled true and had decent speed. Fairways are in nice shape, bunkers perfect, rough still has a few issues but playable. Tee boxes are still a mixed bag, some need attention !

Overall the course is playing well, new watering policy has allowed some of the normal wet areas to finally become dry. Nice !

Based on the most recent review, decided to get back out to Pasadena and play Brookside. I had concerns about being able to get out early, but to my surprise it was not that bad. However, when I made the turn, there was quite a bit of back nine play, so things really slowed down a lot. But the weather was great, so just resigned myself to enjoy the morning and wonderful setting.

Course is actually in good overall condition, particularly the greens. They rolled faster than they looked ! Bunkers nice as well. Some areas in the fairways could use attention, but still playable.

Always enjoy Brookside #1. Several of the par four holes are now too long for me to reach in regulation, but that's becoming more and more common everywhere I play now. (Maybe it's time to re-think which tees I play ) Bottom line is that it was a fun enjoyable round, and with the senior discount, well worth the $$.

With sunrise now being so late, tough to find a place to get out super early and avoid the crowds. Called many courses, and only Oceanside indicated there would be no issue, so back I returned. Not much change since my prior review. Greens still by far the best part of the course. Fairways were for the most part in good condition, as are the bunkers, its just when/if you stray from the fairways that you'll encounter all the bare areas. (Some intentional)

The more I play here, the more I like this course. It's just a fun, interesting, economical layout, with easy access and a very accommodating staff.
