Got out to Big V Saturday 2/22 teeing off at 11am with a couple of friends. It was a bit rainy, so the course played pretty damp, and it was cart path only.
Customer service is always great at Big V, they're all really nice people. I really enjoy the practice area. The chipping green is fantastic. The rain started coming down pretty hard, so I ran in for a Bloody Mary and some breakfast. Delicious!
The course is in fantastic shape, if you exclude the fairways. Tee boxes were lush and level. The rough is gorgeous and lush. 3-5" long and thick! The greens were running around 10.5, but had definitely slowed down because of the rain. Beautifully smooth, and a pleasure to putt from. The fairways are a mess. Winter dormant bermuda...not many good lies to be had. Lift clean and place this time of year, but muddy and thin lies all day. They really need to start overseeding the fairways in the winter. If I was a member, I'd be a bit upset about paying all that money for those fairways.
Overall, another great day at Valencia Country Club. I can't wait to get back out there in a month or two when the fairways come out of being dormant. Thanks again, Nathan!» Close
