Played with the GK Gurus on 2/27. I'll just echo what they said, that the course is in terrific shape. Very lush, fairways like carpet, but the rough kept in check enough that you shouldn't have too much trouble finding your ball in it. Greens were smooth and suuuuuper fast, giving me fits all day but that's because I stink. Wasn't in any bunkers, but they looked pretty good considering all the recent rain.
Played the Creekside/Ridgeline combo, wish we could've played Ridgeline first because I hate ending my round on a par 3, but it's a good one so no real complaints. The course was all ours on a Monday, pace would've been very fast except we stopped to take photos a lot because the views. Only saw the cart girl once, but it was a slow cold Monday so I get it.
Overall a great experience, Moorpark is a fun layout with nice views, and now that it's had some rain I think it's almost in peak condition. Can't wait to go back in late spring.

Teed it up with fellow GK Review Gurus on Monday 2/27. What a great time. Even on a cloudy cold day. The course was in excellent condition. The best I’ve seen it years. So lush and green. They had lightly verticut that morning and with a dusting of sand which made the putting surfaces even smoother and faster. Fairways groomed and lush. Rough groomed, 1-2 inches and lush. Bunkers groomed with quality sand. Tee boxes cut tight, lush and groomed.
We played the Creekside to Ridgeline combo which provided a formidable challenge to say the least. I still say that hole #4 on the Creekside nine, beast par 4 requiring a long carry off the tee to clear the gorge to a small fairway and then an awkward long uphill forced carry to a tight green complex, is the most difficult par 4 in all of Ventura County, and right up there in all of Southern California. My favorite combo is Canyon Crest to Creekside. The layout at Moorpark CC is spectacular in my mind. Views, elevation changes, doglegs, large variety of holes, no let downs, super challenging, well-guarded green complexes yet fair.
The clubhouse, service and amenities are all top notch staying true to the golf course's “Country Club” name yet delivering that level of experience to the public. Moorpark CC is a must play. Thanks everyone that joined me. Let’s get out there again soon!
