Rode the Blacks on Creekside/Ridgeline 73.8/142/7012 this morning 1/21/2020. Thanks to Moorpark CC fitting me in between a small outing. POP was only 3 hrs with beautiful weather in the low 60's with hardly any wind.
Had not been here in 16 months or so. Conditions were pretty good for mid January.
Greens were in great shape. Soft on approaches yet putting and chipping like glass. Putting just beautiful. You had to be careful on downhillers and could be semi-aggressive on uphillers. I could putt these bent grass greens everyday. Rated 8.5/10
Rough had a beautiful contrast brown dormant look in compasrion to the semi-green fairways. Rough was mostly mowed down dormant brown. Decent condition. Rated 6/10
Fairways semi-lush, tightly mowed and ball sitting up for the most part. Did not have any bad lies in fairways. Rated 7/10.
Tees were mostly level and lush and in good shape. Rated 7.5/10.
Was in greenside bunker on number 9 Creekside which was raked and contained a nice amount of sand. Saw multiple maintenance workers working on fairway and greenside bunkers on the Ridgeline 9.
Very challenging layout from the Blacks on Creekside, nice challenge from Ridgeline and Canyon Crest as well. Course has some epic elevation changes, tough par 4's and some birdie holes here and there. I love coming here to challenge myself. I would highly reccomend Moorpark CC--terrific greens, fun and challenging layout and peaceful area to play.» Close

Rode the blues this morning 1/13/2020 on a beautiful colder morning with little to no wind. POP was great thanks to the starter letting me tee off on the back nine first to avoid multiple groups that were on holes 1 and 2.
Conditions were similar to my last round out here about 3 weeks ago.
The greens once again were the highlight of the show. Super quick putting and chipping wise yet holding beautifully with well struck irons with spin. They had some really challenging pins this morning where you could see putts struck a little to firm rolling a good 6 feet or so by the hole. Green rating 8.5/10.
Fairways were mostly green. Would say 70 percent lush, 30 percent thin. Didn't have a bad lie in the fairway. Rated 7/10
Tees were positioned at the back of every tee box which was cool and gave other areas a chance to heal. Most tees were level where you could find a good spot. Rated 7/10
Rough was mostly mowed down in a uniform fashion. Some of the rough is lush, some spots thinner. Rated 6.5/10
Sand bunkers have improved some. They are actually all raked and maintained beautifully, they just need more sand overall in the greenside traps. Rated 6/10.
Course is super fun to play with some nice tight tee shots, forced carries, lakes and a good portion of ESA's to navigate. Some nice birdie holes and some challenging holes as well.

Walked the Orange tees this morning 1/6/2020 at 10am with my buddy Mack, buddy and fellow teaching pro Brian P. and his nephew Jake. Great group to play with. We came in a shade over 4 hrs for pace of play on an absolute perfect day for golf, low 70 temps with no wind. Very friendly staff checking us in. They have a range here with mats, seperate little chipping area and a nice sloped putting green.
I have been playing this course for many years and cannot remember the greens being this nice. Very quick and firm on putts and chips(would say close to a 11 on the stimp), yet holding irons beautifully. For sure the highlight of the course. Staff should be commended on how nice the greens are. Very undulating big greens here where they can put some awesome challenging pin locations. Rated 9/10
Fairways were semi-lush with most areas green and lush(epsecially for early Jan). Some wet and muddy areas in shady areas. Rated 7/10
Tees level and in good shape. Rated 7/10
Was not in any bunkers(thank goodness) but let me tell you they are white marble and are very thick. Great player in our group had a hard time getting out of them. Our group described them as almost having too much beach like sand. Would rather have to much sand rather than hard rock bunkers.
Rough was mostly mowed down, uniform length and mostly lush. Rated 7/10.
Soule's green complexes will challenge players along with holes 6 and 8 on the front nine and hole 14 on the back nine.
Had a career round out here today--even if I didn't----- I just love the layout and weather up here.

Had a great time this morning 12/19/2019 riding the blues on a colder morning with a say 10mph breeze. POP was 3 hrs playing the front in an hour and then catching a logjam of players on #12. Great friendly staff here at Tierra Rejada. Couple cool changes is they are now allowing golf carts in the parking lot to load and unload and they are currently working on the East end driving range fence. I saw a ton of improvements on the course today.
Fairways were green, mostly lush with a few tight lies here and there but for the most part for December golf I thought they were in good shape. The closer you got to the greens there were some thin chipping areas but not to bad. Rated 7/10
The greens were fantastic. Not sure if it was the last 2 days of wind that made them firm, possibly along with the colder weather in the mornings. They were awesome and a treat to putt on. Made my fair share of 10-15 footers today. Awesome when you can start a putt online and it will hold its line. Beware greens are firm and well struck irons or chips with spin will hold with height, anything else was releasing big time today. Loved the greens as I love firmer greens! Rated 8/10
Tees were mostly lush, mostly level and had some minor divot damage on some par 3's. Rated 7/10
Rough was mostly mowed down and not an issue just off the fairways, Some different clumps of grass but I was surprised how green the rough is especially again for December. Staff doing a great job here. Rough 7/10
Sadly the bunkers were the only thing that needs attention. After hitting a 355 yd drive on number 3 I was in the left fairway bunker with an 80 yd bunker shot that was on stone ground. Actually like the fairway bunkers like this but also encountered stone ground on greenside bunkers on #12 and #16. Almost looks like they had days of rain and no maintenance. For sure could use some more sand in the greenside bunkers and a good rake.
Other than the bunkers this course is in very good shape right now! Nice challenging layout with some target front nine holes, good mix of risk reward holes and some pretty good conditions especially the greens. Recommended.» Close

Rode the purple tees Monday afternoon 12/9/2019 with the GK Gurus teeing off at 12 noon. Paired with Nickesquire, Pedro7170 and RGM2525. POP was just over 4 hours on a picture perfect chamber of commerce Palm Desert Monday afternoon with light breezes and weather in the low 70's.
My second time playing here and I loved the course even more the 2nd time around. A great mix of some short risk reward par 4's and some longer par 4's with some teeth. Some up and down hills and some tighter tee shots that must be accounted for, but not a target layout. The real winner for toughness for this course is the current length of the rough and the numerous fairway and greenside bunkers the players must avoid. We lost my playing partners tee shot on number 4 even though his tee shot looked to be just off the left side of the fairway(that gives you an example of the rough). This is such a fun layout with the darling standout holes 9 and 18 that provide water features/ponds near the greens.
Fairways were a 10/10. I thought they were the highlight of the course. Super lush lies, green. Just perfect.
The fairway and greenside rough was also a 10/10. Very thick, playable but you needed to really know how to go down and get it if you were in the fairway rough.
Tees were a 10/10 level and lush. Perfect condition. I did not even want to walk on the tees or fairways or greens to ruin the presentation.
Greens were a 9/10. Quicker than Rams Hill or Indian Wells. Rolling very nicely. Made my fair share of putts today on these greens. Had some tricky pin locations on 2 and 4 if I remember right where if you were on the wrong side of some of these pins you were in triouble. I mentioned to my playing partners that I don't remember the greens having as much undualtion and character as I saw today. Awesome green complexes.
Was in greenside bunkers on 12 and 13. Both bunkers were raked with the perfect amount of sand and easy to splash out of. If a player can miss all bunkers here on this layout they have really golfed their ball well! There a tons of them! Very strategic!
They have a beautiful range and a rocking patio, clubhouse and restaurant. I have not played the sister MountainView course and I want to try that one next time I am at Desert Willow. This is one of the best conditioned courses that I have played in a while.
