Mid morning tee time using the GK "Golf King" Coupon. Finished the round in a little over three hours which is great having had rounds in excess of five hours here before. The staff is always great and welcoming and the facilities are always in good shape. This is one of the more challenging courses in the Temecula Valley. The tee boxes were mostly flat but a few were very thin. The maintenance crew was out trimming and mowing many sections of the course today. The fairways had great coverage on almost every hole. There are a couple holes where the rodents have given the crew and golfers problems but it's limited to small sections on those holes. A few of the fairways had some very tight lies in the landing area one would find off the tee. The rough was just long enough to stop your ball and short enough to hit a decent shot from. The traps looked well groomed but some were thin on sand and damp/wet. The greens are in great shape after the recent rains but still gave me fits with their subtle unseen breaks. There were very few ball marks to be seen on every green. The greens here are very large and don't always hold shots well and can really frustrate even the best of putters. The scenery and location of this course remind me of another place - not your typical So Cal course. I've always enjoyed the course after making the drive up the hill to this out of the way gem. Always recommended!
Worst hole on the course. Leave the driver in the bag and try to hit something 200ish up the left side and pray it doesn't take a hard bounce into the water on the right. You'll be left with a semi-blind short iron to a green that angles away from you.
