Local "Munish" course in pretty darn good shape. Scenic central coast mountain setting on a very hilly piece of property. $25 after 2PM, was well worth it, however I think they charge just as much for the cart. After walking it I think they could charge even more, LOL. It is quite a workout. Course is pretty lush right now, ball sat up nice and I had no bad lies. I wasn't in any sand traps but I don't remember seeing many. Greens were all smooth and medium fast.

It has some quirky, semi blind holes, that without a cart made it extra challenging for a first timer. Don't be lazy like me, walk up the sixth hole to see where to hit it. I played what I thought was a straight shot down the middle and never found my ball. Some of the fairways are pretty tight and tree lined. The back nine is one decent golf hole after the next over some very hilly terrain. Now is a good time to play it as it can get awfully toasty out here in the summer and the course conditions may suffer. It's nothing spectacular, but well worth it if in the area.

Good times today with Solinari619. The course is in good shape. The starting hole is now what used to be the 17th. It got messed up for some reason, but I recovered and made up for it. Everything seems to be great on the course. For $165/player, it should be.

Greens: Medium fast. I could not hit a good putt all day, but they all seemed to roll great.

Fairways and rough: There's not a lot of rough, but good grass coverage was to be had everywhere. I never had a bad lie.

Bunkers: Nice sand; soft and light. Good bunker conditions.

Tees: We played the White tees. All were level and had great turf.

Overall: The course is as nice as I remember it; just way more expensive.

I played here twice in the last two weeks. Conditions are vastly improved from my past experiences here. There is a new management team and it appears that maintenance has been stepped up.

Greens: medium speed and soft. There has been a lot of ball marks, but most are easily fixed. Greens roll true.

Fairways: Good coverage overall. Some areas receiving supplemental water during the morning.

Rough: Slightly taller than the fairways, but a noticeable cut. Not too penal.

Bunkers: All looked decently groomed and had good sand.

Tees: Level and not too many divots.

Overall: this course plays slow for the yardage. Not unusual as it is an executive size course in a dense suburban neighborhood with not many other options nearby. The price is right, especially for walkers.

Little bit of a late post...

Played Paiute Wolf 2 days in a row over the weekend. First time here and in one word Amazing!!! Course was pristine from tee to green. Not one negative thing to say here. Saturday was some of the best conditions you can have weather wise here. No wind and a nice 95 degrees, no problem. Sunday was a different story. That pesky wind crept up and wrecked havoc on us. It was a 2 club wind all day...greens were fantastic and rolled true. I've played a lot of golf and these were some of the best greens I've ever played on.
Will definitely be back to experience the other 2 courses sooner rather than later...

This is my 4th time playing it since it's reopening. Course overall is nice. This golf course is pretty straight forward. If you're spraying the ball it will get really tough due to all the trees. You will find some iffy lies at times, even on the fairways. Bunkers are full and have great sand coverage. Tee boxes are level and not chewed up. Greens are pretty good in my opinion, especially for being new. They are very firm and don't tend to hold shots so you have to play to a lesser distance. They roll pretty well too. Not a lot of ball marks due to the firmness. Going to take time for the greens to mature. Overall I enjoy playing DB and will continue to due so.

Having an appointment in the Valley, decided I would try to play one of the Sepulveda Dam courses. Was actually hoping to get out on Balboa but ended up on Encino. Used to play here quite often when I lived in Westchester, but South OC to Encino is a long haul in traffic. Since it's been a while, I should have adjusted which tees I played, because many of the holes have become unreachable in regulation for me now. While the holes themselves are not all that demanding, just the length of some of the holes made scoring a rather daunting endeavor.

Course was in pretty nice condition overall. Greens better than expected - rolled well and had decent pace. Fairway coverage decent for the most part. I could always find a spot to tee it up without issue. Only in one bunker and it was fine. If/when I make the trip to the Valley, I hope to get on Balboa, but if I end up on Encino, I will PLAY IT FORWARD.

Walked the Orange Tees with my buddy Matt yesterday 6/19/24 1st twilight group out joining a nice local twosome from Ojai. Weather pretty much perfect 79 degrees with no wind.

Soule Park is thriving. Would now call it an institution as it's so popular, highly recommended in most golf magazines. Be hard pressed to see it in any nicer condition wise than yesterday. Couple that with friendly staff, a newly renovated restaurant/bar and fabulous tucked mountainside backdrop. I almost hate reviewing it as more word gets out and it gets more crowded..lol.

Fairways a 9/10 complete lushness ball sitting up perfectly. Decent rollout and just a pleasure to compress irons off of.

They have leveled 10 tee, most all tees level, super lush and in great shape 8.5/10.

Rough just off the fairways and greens was the nicest I have ever seen it. Just mowed to about 2 inches. Perfect shape. 9.5/10

Huge fringes here. Some are softer than others. Beautiful shape and puttable. Rated 8/10

Greens were very receptive, soft and putting medium speed. Probably a 10 on the stimp. We fixed as a group our extra share of ballmarks. Greens here are very large and very undulating. Rated 8/10

Not in any bunkers but playing partner said they were soft and in great shape.

The winter rains have really made this place the best it has ever looked.

Burgers and drinks in their crowded restaurant overlooking the emerald fairways as the sun was setting was a perfect end to a beautiful day.

Highly recommended for price, layout and conditions

Wood Ranch is always so lovely and consistent in quality!


Played WRGC on a beautiful Monday at the GM Event with Johnny, Ron, and Andrew. It was an amazing time with wind speeds around 10 - 20 mph. Pace of play was around 5 hours. I note the following conditions:


Tee Boxes: Level and green, no damage. Condition excellent.


Fairways: Green, lush, and defined from rough. Condition excellent.


Greens: Green, medium-fast in speed, with softness. Speed about a 10.5 in speed but tricky with tough pin placements. Condition excellent.


Sand: very well maintained, and heavy. Condition excellent.


Rough: very well maintained and defined, about 3 – 5 inches. Condition excellent.


Water Hazards: Very scenic on Holes 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, and 18. Condition excellent.


Waste Areas: Waste areas were maintained with manicured nature that offered little to no recovery potential. Condition excellent.


Loved the Wood Ranch experience once again! This is a Grade A track that thrives in quality and consistency. One of the best courses in Ventura County and all of SoCal! Looking forward to the next opportunity to play here!

Buenos Dias from Coral Canyon! You are one fun and challenging course!


Coral Canyon is another hybrid Desert / Mountain Championship Course that features elevation changes, strategic bunkering, limited water hazards, beautiful nature, canyons, along with beautiful views.


The course was very challenging and required precision off the tee and on approach shots. Grateful my game was on, otherwise this course can really beat up players who are not precise. Not saying the place was too tight or unreasonable, but it is visually intimidating at times and surroundings are always penal with lost ball being a high possibility.


The course played its yardage, fairways offered moderate roll out on drives and greens held approach shots well. The course was well manicured and in really good condition. The overall course layout is rated a 4.5 out of 5 and conditions are rated a 4.4 out of 5 for this time of year. I note the following:


Tee Boxes: Level and green, no damage. Condition above-average.


Fairways: Green, lush, and defined from rough. Condition above-average.


Greens: Green, medium-fast in speed, with firmness. Noted to be undulating and hard to read at times. Speed about a 11. Condition above-average.


Sand: very well maintained, and heavy. Condition above-average.


Rough: very well maintained and defined, about 3 – 5 inches. Condition above-average.


Water Hazards: limited and well maintained. Noted people fishing in one of the lakes after the course closed.


Waste Areas: Waste areas were maintained with manicured nature that offered little to no recovery potential. Condition excellent.


Driving Range and Practice Areas: The range was nice and off grass that was in good of shape. Range included various markers from 75 - 250 yards. Range balls were quality Yellow-Ranger golf balls that were well maintained. I also noted a very nice chipping.


Practice Putting Greens: Two were noted. Medium and in very nice condition. Speed was consistent with course.


POP: 4.23 hours – no wait was encountered but there were plenty of golfers playing.


Pro Shop: High quality and beautifully stocked. Service received was excellent.


Food: Nice restaurant and very good food!


Customer Service: Perfect!


I really enjoyed this course and note such as a good test of golf for even a low handicap golfer. This is a course where you do not want to lose your focus, or it will get you!


Another great course in Southern Utah, that is strongly recommended. The design is outstanding, just make sure you bring your Game. Would play here again, anytime!


Grade A for CCGC. Do not pass this one up on your St. George Golf Trip!

Finally experienced the Amazing Sand Hollow Golf Course!


SHGC is no doubt a great golf course, which receives its Gusto from the very scenic and beautiful Back 9 that runs along the Cliffs of Sand Hollow State Park. The Front 9 is more resort style and flat, but still very fun and nice.


SHGC is another hybrid Desert / Mountain Championship Course in Southern Utah that features elevation changes, strategic bunkering, beautiful nature, canyons, along with breathtaking views. Albeit most of the topography change is along the back nine.

The course was challenging but always fair. The course played its yardage, fairways offered moderate roll out on drives and greens held approach shots well. The course was very well manicured, but it came with a price. On this day, it seemed like staff was working on every hole on the front nine. The front nine was less enjoyable because it was distracting to hear loud lawnmowers, blowers, or maintenance equipment far too often.

The overall course layout is rated a 4.5 out of 5 (Front 9 - 4.0 and Back 9 - 5.0), conditions are rated a 4.6 out of 5 for this time of year. I note the following:


Tee Boxes: Level and green, no damage. Condition excellent.


Fairways: Green, lush, and defined from rough. Condition excellent.


Greens: Green, medium-fast in speed, with firmness. Noted to be undulating and hard to read at times. Speed about a 11.5. Condition excellent.


Sand: very well maintained, and heavy. Condition excellent.


Rough: very well maintained and defined, about 3 – 5 inches. Condition excellent.


Water Hazards: None Applicable.


Waste Areas: Waste areas were maintained with manicured nature that offered little to no recovery potential. Condition excellent.


Driving Range and Practice Areas: The range was very nice and off grass that was in good of shape. Range included various markers from 75 - 300 yards. Range balls were quality Top-Range golf balls that were very well maintained. I also noted a very nice chipping area and practice bunker. Excellent practice facility here.


Practice Putting Greens: Two were noted. Medium and in excellent condition. Speed was consistent with course.


POP: 4.9 hours – wait was encountered on numerous holes on the back nine, but this was expected at the tourist attracting golf course. A lot of Tourist Golfers here.


Pro Shop: High quality and beautifully stocked. Service received was excellent.


Food: Nice restaurant with very good food!


Customer Service: Excellent.


Really enjoyed this course and I strongly endorse playing SHGC if given the opportunity while having the time. This course is another fair test of golf that comes with a great surrounding environment, and a Back 9 which is very special and hard to beat!


I will play SHGC again if given the opportunity. This was a top-level experience! Grade A, all the way.

Had the treat of playing at Copper Rock Golf Course in a fun money game with my Oldest Daughter on the Bag! It was a Magical Day at one of the best golf courses I have ever played!


CRGC is a Hybrid Desert / Mountain Championship Course that features countless elevation changes, strategic bunkering, fairway mounding and moguls, streams, waterfalls, lakes, arroyos, beautiful nature, copper rocks, lava rocks, canyons, along with numerous water hazards. In many ways this course reminded me of Nicklaus Design without being such (Designed by Dale Beddo), as architecture was immaculate for the amazing topography offered by Southern Utah. There was never a copy-paste or boring moment on this course, with views being simply breathtaking. I am still buzzing from playing this track!


The course was challenging but always fair and played in a “what you see, is what you get” manner. The course played its yardage, fairways offered moderate roll out on drives and greens held approach shots well. The course was very well manicured and in Outstanding Condition for the time of year! The course layout is rated a 5 out of 5, conditions are rated a 4.8 out of 5 for this time of year. I note the following:


Tee Boxes: Level and green, no damage. Condition excellent.


Fairways: Green, lush, and defined from rough. Condition excellent.


Greens: Green, medium-fast in speed, with medium firmness. Noted to be undulating and tricky to read at times. Speed about a 11. Condition excellent.


Sand: very well maintained, and heavy. Condition excellent.


Rough: very well maintained and defined, about 3 – 5 inches. Condition excellent.


Water Hazards: Water features were very well placed but never unreasonable to the player. Such were noted to be very attractive which provided an additional beauty element to this very fine golf course. Condition excellent.


Waste Areas: Waste areas were maintained with manicured nature that offered little to no recovery potential. Condition excellent.


Driving Range and Practice Areas: The range was incredible with its glorious back drop of Zion National Park and Sand Hallow State Park. Furthermore, the range was off grass that is in as good of shape as quality fairways. Range included various markers from 75 - 300 yards with runout at about 350 yards. Range balls were quality Callaway range golf balls that were very well maintained. I also noted a very nice chipping area and practice bunker. Excellent practice facility here.


Practice Putting Greens: Two were noted. Large and in excellent condition. Speed was consistent with course.


POP: 3.5 hours – no wait was encountered on any hole. We paced ourselves accordingly.


Pro Shop: High quality and beautifully stocked. Service received was excellent.


Food: They had a small restaurant adjoining to the Pro Shop. It was limited, but certainly not bad or great.


Customer Service: Perfect!


Really enjoyed this course and I strongly endorse playing CRGC if given the opportunity. This course is a fair test of golf that comes with a great surrounding environment, and an overall beautiful scenery.


I will play CRGC again if given the opportunity. I place this course as my favorite course in Utah! This was a 5 Star Experience!


So blessed for the opportunity to have experienced this course!
