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

Played on Saturday morning out at 9:10 with two friends. Got paired up with a single. I walked along with the single and my buddies rode. The course is fairly easy to walk, but does have a couple of hills. POP was right around 4 and a half hours hardly waiting on any shots.
The greens looked like they had recently been punched, small holes all over sandy and some sort of grass all over the surface of most holes. Made putting a chore as the greens were super slow and bumpy.
Tee boxes and fairways were in good shape with lush lies all around. A couple of areas had some hard pan and bare spots in the fairways but for the most part it wasn't good. Wasn't in any traps, but they looked to be in good shape.
As mentioned in a previous post they are switching the nines and had the markers with the new hole numbers covered in plastic, but you could still see that the nines had been switched. They were also in the process of adding a hole between 5 and 6. I can only assume that they will be dropping 9th, as I didn't pay close attention to the marker hole numbers to closely to know which hole was missing one.
Had a fun time, no cart service and wouldn't mind coming back once the 9's switch, but coming from Ventura County and in my opinion the better courses out that way I don't know if it will be until I see some post about the greens being better taken care of and the overrun of grass on them handled.» Close

Played Saturday morning with a tee time of 8:45 for a twosome. Got there about 40 minutes early and grabbed a small bucket to loosen up. There were two foursome's waiting on the tee box and four or five people on the range.
Went up to the first tee after taking some swing at the range and rolling about 15 putts, and to my amazement there was nobody around. There starter came out and asked if me and my buddy were ready and informed us that the twosome that had booked the other slot with us still hadn't checked in yet. After hitting our tee shots we heard an announcement to hold up as they were going to send a single out with us, and we got paired up with a nice gentleman.
I walked as is my usual preference and the other two each had a cart. Pace of play was just under 4 hours which for a Saturday morning was exceptional based on prior experiences here. We didn't have to wait to hit a shot and the group behind us was at least a full hole behind for most of the day.
Greens have recovered nicely from the punching they recently received and rolled smooth a little on the slow side 7/10. Fairways were lush with few brown spots and I can't recall having a bad lie 7/10. Tee boxes were mostly level and with very few divots but could have used a good shave as some were a little fuzzy 6/10. Rough went from hard dirt to, hard to find the ball it all depended on the hole and how far off the fairway you went. 6/10. Sand was nicely raked and had no problems coming out of the green side one as it was nice and soft. Fairway traps varied from soft and fluffy to a little harder. I prefer the harder ones and it makes it easier to pick your ball clean. 6/10.
Cart girl was around a couple of times and wish she would have been by a couple on the front side, but was extremely nice. Service is always top notch here and I will be returning and hope to run into the same POP next time, but am not holding my breathe.» Close
