Played balboa New Years Eve day and showed up around 10:30 course was packed and took a little while to get out as a twosome from the waiting list. Played in a little under 5 hours, once we finally got out.
Tee boxes where in decent shape lush, with even lies. Some of the shorter holes a little chewed up but not bad. Fairways were brown, still had decent coverage and didn't have a problem hitting off them, just dormant winter grass. Sand in the bunkers was nice just a little wet.
The greens are a different story. Do people just not know how to fix ball marks. I know this is a busy course but comeon there must have been a dozen that I fixed every hole. Towards the end of the day they got really bumpy. I can only assume that it's from the amount of play, but they need to be rolled or something. Speed was up but with the bounces putting was a challenge.
A good day was had, but I will probably only play here without a tee time as the odds of getting out with two courses seems to make it easier» Close
