Married with one kid play every couple of months now that the kid is around, but he is almost three and wants to start playing so maybe I get to sneak out more in the future. Have been playing for 15 years or so, and feel I am an decent player with room for improvement

Played on Saturday morning with a 7:00 tee time with three friends, and got paired up with a nice gentlemen Blair. POP was a little over 4 hours, only a cloudy morning. Ended up having to pull out the umbrella on the 13th hole and by the 15th it was a solid rain, coming down, but that wasn't going to stop any of us from finishing. I have avoided this course for years based on the fact the fairways were always either super soggy or extremely dry, but can see myself putting it back on the normal rotation, as conditions have dramatically improved.
Cost was their normal weekend price of $55 that included the cart that me and one of my friends passed on and walked the course. It is a fairly easy course to walk as it's mostly flat except a couple of the opening holes that cross a street. I like the layout here, and think it's a fairly easy course to score on if played correctly.
Greens were running a little slow, could be from the recent rains, but they putted true. Fairways were lush with good coverage, and I can't think of one time that I had a bad lie in the fairway.
Rough could be hit and miss some thin, with some sort of weeds growing in spots other places so long I walked right over my ball before a more thorough search found it. But it was always playable. Tee boxes were fairly level a couple could use a little work, however I was never in a position that I couldn't find someplace to hit from that was level with good coverage.
The bunkers were slightly hard packed, again could be from the recent rains as they also seemed a little damp. Some played nicely to get out of, others made it could of testy.
A good time was had, and as mentioned before, could see the course getting placed back in the rotation.» Close

Played on Friday 3/25 as a twosome with a 1:42 tee time for $50 each thanks to GN. Got there around 1:15 and checked in nobody was on the tee box, but was told that we needed to wait for our tee time before heading out (kind of sucked but whatever). Other than that I thought the service was good. Only saw the cart girl once, and it was on the 5th green, would have been nice to see her on the back nine also.
POP was right around 4 1/2 hours after catching a threesome on hole 6, that was being held up by a twosome of women that seemed like they were doing more talking than golfing. I don't know what happened to them on the back nine, unless a couple of groups let them play through. There was also a backup at the 18th tee of two other groups that slowed things down dramatically but only for the last hole.
First time to the course and boy what a great looking course, but one that you really need to play a few times first to be able to score well.
The greens putted true, but weren't to quick. I would think that they are usually a little faster just by they way they played, but having never been there before maybe that is just there normal speed. They seemed very firm, and you wanted to land short of the hole otherwise you would just be at the back of the green.
Sand was soft and fluffy and nice to play out of. Fairways were tight, but had a great lies and gave plenty of roll. Tee boxes were all in great condition with a few of the tees boxes mostly par 3's having to find a spot to tee from due to divots.
Overall, the conditions are nice, and for the $50 rate I would return. With that being said I don't think I would ever pay the normal rack rate, as coming from Ventura County and having all the courses up there in the fantastic condition they are in the conditions of this course weren't that much better.» Close

Played Friday February 19 at 9:15. Got paired with a pair of gentleman and the wife of one of them who were very kind. They happened to be Marshalls at the course and were getting in their rounds for the week.
Pace of play was right around 3 hours and fifteen minutes. Tee boxes where in good shape mostly level with divots on the par 3's but not to the point you couldn't find a place to hit from. Fairways were a mixture of brown and green, looking like they wanted to come back after the recent rain, but good lies were found. Wasn't in a sand trap so no comments about those, but they looked acceptable. Greens held shots well and putted true, however they seemed a little slow.
Westlake is a short course par 67 that will boost your confidence and give you a decent place to work on your irons and short game.
And for only $20.50 using the weekday walking coupon here on GK it's a good deal.» Close
