Played 1/2 with a 9:15 start. Pace was decent but a tad slow. Oak Creek has a great range but the grass tees there were pretty beat up. Overall course is in OK shape but certainly not worth paying over $80 for with other options in the area. We got out with a $80 coupon and Costco has a decent deal now. I wouldn't pay more than that.
Tee boxes were in poor shape, either divots, uneven ground or bare spots. Fairways were better than decent but not great. Traps were above average but as posted before, people just dont rake them. Whats up with that?!? Best part of the course and the saving grace were the greens. Greens were pure and in great shape.
Staff was fantastic as well as service. Starter let us know they will have an open qualifier in the near future so they are growing out the rough. I think they need to focus on other areas prior to the qualifier. Also disappointed that they have removed so many trees on the back 9. This used to be a course in the middle of Irvine and but you felt like you could be in the remote suburbs. Now there are 2-3 holes that look out onto the 5 freeway. So sad.
Bottom line, the Costco deal is probably worth it, but with green fee price increases in 2020, Id consider other options before coming back.» Close
