Played here today with 11:15 tee time using mpisarki01’s player’s club rate of $90. Thanks Matt! I was unfortunately running very late due to extra heavy traffic, so I didn’t get a chance to partake in any of the practice facilities. After Matt texted me saying he had to park in the parking structure, I also made a mistake by parking in a different, giant parking structure that was at least a 10-minute walk/scramble/mad dash trying to find the golf course. Pro Tip: If playing here, leave yourself a little extra time to navigate the resort, find the course, and park near it – rather than wandering all over like me. Anyway, we started on time and POP was great until we caught the group ahead of us on the 9th. From there, it was a little slow but not too bad. Total POP probably around 4.5 hours.

Conditions are very nice! Greens are smooth and very receptive of full shots. They rolled about medium speed but looked like they’d be faster. I left putts short all day. Fairways are coming out of dormancy and have great coverage except for occasional spots that aren’t really in play. Overseeded rough along the fairways is lush and around 3-4 inches deep, although I felt the ball sat up pretty good in it most times. Occasionally it would settle down in it, which made things difficult. Black tee boxes were all level and well maintained. I wasn’t in any bunkers but they seemed pretty good.

Only my second time here. Great course where there’s never a dull moment. Tons of elevation changes make things fun. Also lead to lots of long drives between holes. Good amenities almost make it feel like a private club with free water bottles, two colors (!) of branded tees, divot fixers, ball markers, etc. Highly recommended!

Navy didn't open for play until last October then only 3 or 4somes could book tee times. Play is now open for singles through 4somes to book. The course uses Golfnow for online tee times or you can call the course. The driving range, practice chipping green, and two putting greens are open. Navy Destroyer is a good track with plenty of variety and water comes into play on several holes.

Teed off on Friday morning at 6:30 finishing in 3:55. Overall the course is green and lush. The greens rolled with medium/fast speed, held shot, and were mostly smooth. The ball could wiggle a little as the put slowed. The fairways have good coverage and were a little on the long side so not a lot of roll out. There were a few thin spots but I had good lies all round. The rough around the greens and along the fairways is primarily very good with a few thin/bare spots and moderately penal. The no play zones marked by red stakes with green tops operate under local rules providing for a No Penalty drop within to club lengths. The course does not want golfers in those areas. The bunkers have sand but are a bit compacted and don't appear to be raked buy staff often so plenty of foot prints. Once I smoothed a spot with my foot and dropped the bunkers were playable. The tee boxes have good coverage although some are mildly unlevel. Overall a good time to play Navy Destroyer.

Played on Sunday, 5/2, with the Pisarski group. This should be the example of "don't judge a book by it's cover." After parking in the large lot and walking up the hill pass the maintenance shed, you're greeted by an underwhelming clubhouse. It has a nice patio but the interior feels a bit dated, with a small pro shop and snack bar. No outside staff waiting at the carts, just grab and go. Then you turn the corner and met with a huge driving range (mats and grass) and a nice size putting green.

Course was in pretty good shape as it is starting to heat up. Level tee boxes, some a bit hard to place a tee. Fairways were lush with very little amount of thin or bare areas. Rough gradually faded from 2 inches to the desert surroundings. Bunkers were a bit mixed, I was in a few decent ones, and a few thin ones. Greens were outstanding. Firm and way faster than they looked. I don't think I saw a ballmark all day.

At $30, it was an absolute steal. This place is all golf with no frills attached. Course design is really nice, with a mix of some risk/reward short par 4s, long par 5s, and decent par 3s. Both the front and back 9s have a loop through the canyons on the other side of the 95, and both have views of the river. It reminded me of courses in Mesquite. Some tips: don't trust Google Maps/Waze, it takes you past the entrance, just read the signs. Snakes are abundant, with a rattler on the cart path after the 6th tee box that made Gregholla actually holla.

This is my home course and I have played here often. They are doing a lot of enhancements to the course right now, including all new bunkers. Greens have recovered nicely from aerification and are rolling pretty quickly, albeit, sometimes still bumpy. My biggest gripe with this course is the PoP. It has gotten REALLY bad... A Friday at 11am tee time should not take over 5 hours to finish. Not sure if it is because of American Golf running the course now and there are no Marshalls, or what, but it is bad. It is impossible to get into a golfing rhythm, and thus, not enjoyable.

Match play last Tuesday afternoon with PokerGuy0826. Took advantage of a senior replay at $19 riding. Probably the deal of the year right there. The course is as nice as I remember it. The greens were medium fast to fast, especially downhill putts. They did hold most shots but were firm enough to not leave a lot of ball marks. The ones I did fix were shallow. Fairways and rough almost always gave me a good lie with plenty of turf under my ball (except that one time I was in a divot in the rough). The sand seemed plentiful enough, although it seemed like they all had a layer of crust. Even though there were rakes (I was told they just put them out that day) many bunkers had unraked footprints. We all played the Gold tees and they were fine with no issues finding a level place to tee off from. Good times, not too far from my house, and a nice rate. I guess I will have to make time to come back soon.

Played Thursday, 5/6. A friend called to make the tee time and asked if all 18 holes were open and was told "yes". We were charged the regular green fees. But #10, normally a par 5, was shortened to a 60 yard par3. #11, normally about a 110 yard par3, was shortened to an 80 yard par3. #15, normally a par5, was shortened to a 278 yard par4. The guy at the clubhouse never told us about this. It wasn't worth the $49 that they charged us.

Played Friday may 7th at 7am. Course is not busy at this time of the morning, i think you could walk on and get out. check in fast. Tee boxes were again hard, in fact 1 of my guys was complaining he broke another tee on hole 12 and I finally said to him, you are a multi millionaire, stop complaining about breaking those cheap wood tees and buy something plastic ones, Lol, the next hole he hit a terrible tee shot but didn't break his tee and one of the other guys said, at least you didn't break your tee lol, anyway, fairways were good, looks like all the over seeding is done. Some of the spot next to the greens were very wet and balls plugged, greens rolled very nice. POP was 338, but felt slow as a 3 some was pushing us. Snack bar open for breakfast and lunch, eat in or out.

Played here on Cinco De Mayo, at 11:20. Got there about an hour early, just to utilize the great practice facility. Great putting and chipping area. Bunkers to work on sand game, and grass hitting range. The course is always in top notch quality. The tee boxes are firm and flat. Footing is secure for all those power hitters from the tee box. The fairway are well manicured. There aren't any worn out or dry areas. The rough is great to hit out of, you can find and advance your ball strikes, even though the rough is a bit long, about 2". Bunkers have rakes, so we played shots, and the quality is sand was firm but playable. Greens are undulating, and rolling true. Speed seemed med-fast. The have a lot of great challenging holes, which keeps it fun and entertaining. A must play track.

Played 05/04 as a single with a 2some. We all carried a bag and walked, old school. Teed off 10:15 POP 4 hours. Never waited on any holes. Practice facility is top notch, grass range, chipping green, bunker and huge putting green. Now only if the putting green was similar to the greens on the course. Greens much slower and kinda bumpy. I think they still need some time to heal after being punched. Overall condition are really good, no complaints here. Missed greens always lead to some interesting chips, flops and bump and runs. I'll be back out there soon, I love the Goose!

I didn't play the course, but stopped by yesterday 5/6 to use the driving range and wanted to confirm the current notification on GK. The greens are as heavily sanded as you can get, including the practice greens. All you could see was sand and none of the grass beneath. Near the edge of one practice green, I could see traces of the punch holes. What amazed me was a fairly steady stream of golfers teeing off.

Walked the blue tees this morning (5/6/21) with a 7:10am tee time. Overall, Balboa is in just fair condition. A number of tee boxes were unlevel and had a lot bare areas. Some were fine. The fairways are not in good shape. They have a mix of grasses, and many bare areas and coverage is typically thin and hard. They were playable, but looked and played like the middle of winter conditions.

The rough is mostly thin with some areas of thicker grass. Usually not a difficult shot from the rough. I was in one greenside bunker and one fairway bunker. Both had adequate heavy darker sand; good to hit from. The greens were punched a number of weeks ago. They were medium speed and held shots OK. But they were still a bit bumpy and our balls wobbled at times. In its current condition, I don't recommend playing Balboa. Encino and Woodley are in considerably better shape.
