Got a 1:30 slot on Friday 5/27 for our twosome and were joined by a sociable single. Overall conditions are pretty good but with some exceptions. Generous swaths of the first and 18th fairways have been roped off where the turf seems to have been damaged and is undergoing some kind of replacement. On the first fairway it begins around 220 yards out from the tee and continues for about 40 yards so it definitely has to be factored in to your tee shot and how you play the hole. On the 18th where the disruption crosses over, it is less of a factor because it starts closer to the tee and any reasonable tee shot will land well past it. As far as the rest, teeing grounds are in good shape and level, fairways are green and on the lush side, the rough is consistently grown in and will cost you a shot or more. The one bunker i visited had good sand but a bit heavy from dampness. Short game areas were in good shape for execution and the greens were clean, running the quick side of medium.

The course was busy as usual and the pace was sluggish and not promising until things picked up around the ninth hole. As a result, it felt slower but we ended up getting around in 4.25 hours, which is pretty good. The range is undersized for two courses and frequently has a line waiting to hit, so give yourself extra time if you plan on warming up. For my own reasons, Brookside is not one of my favorites so I get there about once a year even though I am local, but I thought it was in good shape and played well.
What a great surprise! Wonderful, old school golf. Course is immaculate. Played Pebble two days prior and as good of shape as Pebble is in ahead of the US Women's Open, Del Monte is in just as good shape and maybe even better. Not a blade of grass out of place, bunkers well-groomed, rough is lush and at least half a stroke penalty. Feels like a US Open type course. Played Cypress Point the day before where greens were running at 11.5 and Del Monte was running at least the same. A couple putts in our group, from above the hole, ran past the hole and off the green. So much fun. Good design, great atmosphere, friendly service. This would be my home course, with these conditions and price, if I was a local. I would put it at the top of the "tier 2" courses in the area outside of the "big boys". I cannot wait to come back and play. I hope they can keep these conditions where they are because you will not find a better maintained course anywhere.
Course is in perfect shape as they get ready for the women's open. #8 tee box is closed as they re-sod for the US Women's Open which was a bit of a bummer. Rough is no joke. Great customer service. 9 and 10 were playing extremely difficult. I don't think enough gets said about how tough this course really is. Short of the green is always better than long. Still the best place on earth.
The Hay par 3 course, putting green, and bar/restaurant is a great place to spend a few hours. Wonderful vibe, laid back, spectacular scenery. The course is fun, with mostly 50-yard holes, but a few 100-yard holes, as well. I don't believe it's worth $65, as you can get around in about 45 minutes. I received 4 free rounds after joining Pebble Beach's/Del Monte's Duke's Club, but I wouldn't spend the money, otherwise. We had just as much fun playing matches on the putting green. Loved the speakers and music surrounding the putting green.

This place is just good for the soul. We did the early bird back 9 special. Course is in good shape. Back 9 right on the water. Greens rolled well. Love the ocean breeze, smell and scenery on every hole. This course will renew your love for golf. Maybe the worst practice range you've even seen, which only adds to the charm. Highly recommend.
Not wanting to have a 5 hr round at Coyote Creek, I opted for a new course and decided on Spring Valley. Being my first time here, I came with an open mind. In short it was slightly above average muni conditions. Track layout was fun with a wide variety of hole designs. The total yardage on appearance seems on the shorter side but it’s only a par 70 so in fact it’s a “full distance” course. In fact all of the par 3’s are on the longer side (170-200+ yards).

Greens for the most part are single tier with modest slope. Greens rolled smooth but we’re on the slow side. The odd part was they were slightly on the slow side.

Whereas the fairways didn’t have the wow factor on appearance, they presented a great hitting surface with ample coverage throughout. Rough was also lush with good coverage throughout. Rough was manageable and not too penal

Tee boxes were level and divot free. Course is walkable (as I did) but not for the faint of heart. Course is set on a hillside, so there is a lot of elevation changes. Most transfers are reasonable.
The one major design flaw that kills pace of play is the 9th hole. A fun design with a forces carry over water off the tee. Problem is there’s no bridge across the water so you have to go all the way around the 18th hole (which also has a forced carry over the water). It’s not too bad if you are in a cart but put a few walking groups in and it gets backed up bad as it takes extra time to both go around the lake and wait for people on 18 to tee off before crossing in front of their landing area.

Customer services was excellent. All in all a fun experience and I’m sure I’ll play it again
Played 5-23-23 early morning as a single, playing in 2 hours and 45 minutes on a semi damp morning. Tee boxes were just okay, a little shaggy and I did have to search for a level spot on some of them. Fairways were in decent shape, there are a few different types of grass but they were all mostly green and cut to the same length. Rough is the same mix as the fairways, it was cut fairly short along fairways and about two to three inches around greens. Was in one greenside bunker that had thin compacted sand, and one fairway bunker that had a good layer of very soft brown sand. I did notice the liner showing through on a few of the greenside bunkers. Greens were in pretty good condition rolling medium/slow, fairly smooth and playing a little on the soft side. Overall conditions are okay for playing, but I have seen it better.
Today 5-26-23 was opening day for the course. It must be tough to get a course in top shape after 7 months but they have done a decent job. They are re-paving all the cart paths the base layer is done but still to be finished so the paths were blocked off and cart directed along the side of hem. This created a number of problems slowing play unfortunately. Greens are pretty slow but that should change soon. Fairways are in good shape and the rough is rough!!! The rough would make the Open rough seem tame 6 to 8 inches deep. You can lose a ball a couple feet off the fairway and if you find it hitting out of it will take some major strength. Bunkers are firm but better than what we found at Morongo or Green Tree. Looking forward to a great season ahead.
Course was in descent shape. Greens were super soft and spongy and extremely slow. The only thing slower than the greens was the PoP and the golf carts! HORRIBLE. Almost a 6 hour round and the golf carts have governors on them that adjust about ever 15 feet from 2mph to 7mph. Quite miserable.
Twisted Oaks is my new favorite course.
Generous fairways but OOB can cost you severely.
A Premium on golf-shot placement accuracy is a must.
Overall a delightful course to play.
This course can play longer than the yardage indicates.
Staff was extremely friendly and focused on your enjoyment.
Late on this review. Walked the blues early this week joining 2 nice singles under cold conditions with a 1 to 2 club afternoon wind. My first time here since September. What a beautiful looking golf course right now! Flowers are blooming and waste areas outside of the cart paths have knee to waist high plants and beautiful flowers. The lakes are full of water between 11/12 and 13/16 which looks awesome. This is the way the course first looked when it opened with tall waste areas and the lakes filled. The pouring rain the last several months has made this place off the hook beautiful. Our POP was only 4 hrs as we caught a nice break in the tee sheet. Awesome staff and practice areas.

The greens rolled very nicely and were firmer than usual but still holding irons like darts. Rated 7.5/10.

Fairways were damp and gave no roll. Mostly all lush beautiful fairways with just a couple spots of muddy GUR spots. Rated 8/10.

Tees level, lush and in great shape. Rated 8.5/10

Was in greenside bunkers on 3,5,16 and 18 that were in very good shape raked with ample sand. Rated 8/10

Rough just off the fairways inside the cart paths in great shape maybe 2 inches and lush. Outside of the cart paths you are gone. Rated 9/10

Just can't wait for summer rounds out here in the next 3 months. Highly recommended!
Played with 1Plus 1 in the AB Men's group tournament. POP 5H, 40M, but we played with really nice guys which made that much more bearable. Mid 60's, completely overcast and little wind.

Tees decently maintained. Mostly level with a normal amount of divots.

Fairways okay to play from, decent coverage.

Rough a mixture of grasses with decent coverage.

Sant traps were nicely maintained.

Greens still recovering from spring maintenance. Medium fast and somewhat bumpy, but few ball marks. Several greens you were in trouble if above the hole, but only a few had tiers.

Customer Service good. Carts have GPS to the F/M/B of the greens. Good food @ reasonable prices in the restaurant onsite. Military course built in 1957, this is an old school tree lined layout. Not overly tight, fun to play. Recommended.
