Played Saturday Morning with a 7:30 tee time as a twosome. Got out on time with a group in front that we waited on for the first few holes, but opened up after that. The group behind us was at coming up to the tee on two as we left the tee on three, and didn't see them again till about 15 when it looked like they were teeing off on 13 so it felt like we had the course to ourselves. POP was right about 4 hours which for a weekend round was great.
As others have stated and it seems like everyone does this course has two distant feels to it. Holes 1-11 wind through the hills and the native vegetation comes into play, while the final 7 are basically flat with a few gentle rolling fairways here and there.
Tee boxes were in good shape, I didn't notice that it was hard to place a tee like others have stated. Fairways had mostly good coverage dried out in some places, but not to the point of having a hardpan lie. Rough is either thick hard to find your ball type rough or the same as the fairway and mowed close. Wasn't in any sand, but my buddy was in one and it looked to be decent. The greens were soft and a medium speed. Some ball marks and bumps but not to bad. Putted true so can't complain about it to much.
I really want to like the layout, and for the price it wasn't great. Thank you Costco (2 rounds for $80, have to pay an extra 20 each for the early time on the weekend), but with Rustic right down the street and Moorpark a better target golf alternative, I see why it doesn't get the same amount of play and felt like there was hardly anyone out there.
Overall, I would say it's playable for the right price, and I will return, I just wish that the course felt more consistent (Mountain vs Flat).» Close
