Played here early Saturday morning, 4/7/18. I was the third group out, so pace of play was not a problem. I finished in about 3.5 hours. Staff were all really friendly. This was my first time playing this course, so I struggled with course management and club selection. This course is extremely narrow, with many holes having steep hills filled with thick brush and bushes bordering the fairways. If you are inaccurate off the tee, you will be punished.

Gary00 has done a good job detailing the overall conditions here. I did not have any bad lies in the fairways or rough. I did see some thin spots in the rough, but I never had any problems. The greens were exceptional. Every putt rolled true and fast. Was in one greenside bunker and it was firm and damp.

One thing of note is that the course now plays as a par 69 from the blues. They appear to be doing construction on the original 5th and 6th holes. Thus, they now have had to incorporate those two holes into the other 16 holes they have on the course. This means they split a par 5 into a par 3 and par 4. They also made a longer par 4 into a very short par 4 and short par 3. Despite these modifications, I still found the course fun.

Played on 4/3 for a super late twilight round of 9 holes as a single. Teed off at 5:15 p.m. and walked the course, finishing around 7:15. This course is a 9 hole, par 36, municipal course within the borders of Riverside's Fairmount Park. The course is nothing exciting. Straightforward holes with tree-lined fairways. There are no fairway bunkers and the one water hazard they used to have on a par 3 has now completely dried up. Saw only two greenside bunkers: one looked average, the other was roped off and missing half its sand.

Twilight rate was $7 to walk. With that low of a price, it is hard to be critical. The course's strong point is the fairways. The fairways are very lush and green throughout, with no thin spots to be found. They are perhaps a little too long, causing drives to have little roll. The rough 5-10 feet off the fairway was also lush and long. However, outside that 5-10 feet range, the rough turns into very thin grass with spots of dirt littered throughout. The tee boxes were average. Was able to find a good piece of grass and, for the most part, was able to find a level lie. The greens are the weak point of the course. For starters, they are extremely small and hard, which is a difficult combination to deal with. To have any approach shot hold on the green, it must be bouncing on the front edge. The greens were also bumpy and had significant brown spots throughout, causing many puts to go off line. I also saw that they are scheduled to be aerated on April 31 and May 1.

Staff was relatively friendly. However, as I was about to hit my approach shot on the 9th hole, an employee out of the blue just walked onto the green and took the flag out and left with it. That made for a difficult chip afterwards, as I forgot whether it was a blue, white, or red pin.

In sum, this course is a good place if you are in the area and need to get a quick nine holes in for cheap. Not a course to go out of your way to play.

Played on 3/31 (Saturday) with a tee time a little before 9:30. Upon arrival the course was very busy, as there are two separate tracks to play. The Chino Creek is said to be the narrower and more challenging course.

The greens were punched a few weeks ago, but they seem to be recovering well. The punches are still somewhat visible with filled sand but most puts rolled smooth. I think in 2-3 weeks the greens will be fully recovered. The fairways were very lush with never a poor lie. Rough was average but didn't really penalize the errant shot. The rough did have a few bare spots. I never made it into the sand, but two of my playing partners did and they did not seem to complain about their quality.

I really enjoyed this course. However, the only knock on it was the pace of play. Took us little under 5 1/2 hours to play, with us waiting on many tee boxes. However, I think the slow play has more to do with the one group that was in front of us than the course management.
