Played twilight out at Mesa Linda on 3/30/2021. I was just trying to get 9 holes in after work and was able to do so in about 2.5 hours... super slow for a course this length. Waited on every shot. Pace of play was terrible but conditions were solid. Greens were in really nice shape, smooth, medium-fast and firm. Fairways had good coverage but a mix of bare spots as well. Rough is patchy with some thick spots and plenty of bare spots. The one bunker I was in had good sand actually. Tee boxes were definitely better than they usually are out here, less beat up, mowed and was able to find some real grass. For the price I think its a great value in Orange County but the POP is always a struggle.
Played the South course at twilight today and man what a treat. Pristine shape right now. The fairways are firm, full and fantastic to hit off of. The rough is good, not overly long but penalizing in certain areas. Bunkers are good. Tee boxes are near perfection. Greens were firm, smooth and medium speeds. Absolutely worth getting out right now if you can grab a tee time. Caught good weather and a beautiful sunset out there. Tough to beat the location.
First time out at goat hill this morning. Had wanted to check it out for a while, with the kind of publicity this place gets for its vibes and style. I knew what this course was about but was not as good as I was expecting to be honest. The second and third holes both had mud for tee boxes so on number two we hit off a mat. On three the hole was played from a temporary 175 tee instead of par four. The fairways and rough are about as bad as you can find at a course in business except number ten which looks recently resodded. The saving grace is the green complexes are good, small, sloped and in fairly good shape, being pretty smooth and medium speed. Our round took 4 hours and 20 minutes for a course measuring 4400 yards which is an absolute joke to me. Our group almost got hit multiple times by errant shots. There are also 3-4 blind tee shots where you can’t tell if the group in front of you has cleared the fairway or not, which I thought was pretty strange. Luckily we came down to play Torrey pines and this was just an extra round, would’ve been pretty bummed to drive down from OC for this place. I have plenty of friends who enjoy this course though, don’t know if we caught it at a bad time or just not my cup of tea, probably both.
Played twilight at the Ike course yesterday, snuck all 18 in just in time. One of the few courses that I've been able to get a tee time at lately. While I think the Babe course is one of my least favorite layouts in So. California, I feel the opposite about the Ike and really love the design.

The tee boxes and bunkers were about average condition, didn't think about them one way or the other. The fairways are dormant and very thin in many spots where its close to hardpan. Rough is patchy, some spots are thick some are absolute hard pan. Highlight of the course is 100% the greens. Wish people would repair their ball marks out here, because other than that, the greens are pretty much perfect, veryyy fast downhillers, rolling smooth, receptive and able to spin back mid irons. They have very reasonable twilight times and pricing here, may need to make more drives this way in the future. Very challenging layout but also a good mix of birdie holes out there too.
Played twilight at Tijeras 1/10/2021 at 1pm. First off pace of play was amazing, we finished right before 5pm under four hours which was a huge bonus. They are a little more strict here about COVID than other courses locally and all single rider carts which I enjoy. Course has overseeded as usual and course is very green and lush. The tee boxes are okay, always alot of divots out on the par three boxes and not always perfectly level. Fairways have good coverage on most holes, a few patchy areas here and there, number 4 comes to mind, but overall nice. Rough is really nice, deep long overseed, fun to play out of. The greens were as firm as Id ever seen them here and rolling very quickly, I'd guess about 11 on the stimp. I think the firmness of the greens has limited how many ball marks you usually see out here too which is nice. Definitely overall in good shape and would highly recommend right now, always nice to play in the winter when everything else locally is dormant.
Got out to the Nicklaus tournament course today for the first time in probably 6-7 years. I played the stadium course last year around the tournament time and it was absolutely pristine so I was expecting that level of conditioning but was let down.

The design and layout of the course I thought was great, big drop offs on the sides of fairways, angled greens put a premium on placement off the tee. A lot of big deep bunkers out here and good mix of water holes. I’d say I like the layout here more than the stadium course.

As for conditions, the tee boxes were pristine all day pretty much perfect. The fairways look good from afar but definitely more thin spots than I’d expect this close to the tournament looks like the overseed didn’t come in perfectly, also looked like fairways could use a little mow not sure what day they do that might have just caught the wrong day. The bunker are okay not great looking visually and could use some more sand but not horrible. The greens, we were told, were brand new remodeled to original size this past year and a new grass was planted. As is with new greens they are always very firm and again a little sparse with some definite thin spots on the surfaces. Ball rolled okay but definitely not like our experience the previous year at the stadium course.

Overall we really enjoyed the course and got a deal for 65 bucks so 100% worth it. I’d be happy to come back out in a couple months and see if the grass has filled in a little bit. The course lit me up today and I’d love another crack at it, very challenging.
Made the drive out from Orange County yesterday which is about 5 hours round trip. This is my fifth time at rams hill and I love the layout and isolation. Every time I have been out here the course is in near perfect condition. After reading recent reviews I had lower expectations, yet still was disappointed. I think there’s some bias of wanting to say the course is in good shape because of the love for the layout and the experience of going out there. We had a group of 12 guys and about 8 of them said they wouldn’t make the trip out again because of the conditioning price and length of trip. Tee boxes were fine, greens were maybe a 7-8/10. Fairways were flat out bad, there are tons of brown thin spots, shaggy spots, wet spot, they look OKAY from a distance but play terribly. Bunkers were good. For 140 bucks and a 5 hour drive there are tons of courses in Palm Springs in far superior shape right now to play, unfortunately to say.
Got out yesterday 10/20 to play in the afternoon. Course is in beautiful shape regarding tee boxes, fairways and rough. The bunkers are okay. The greens are recovering from aeration about 2-2.5 weeks ago they still need some time, very bumpy and slow, especially in the afternoon. This course should be in great shape for November and December once the greens heal up.
Noticed Shady Canyon hadn't been reviewed in a few years and I was lucky enough to get out to play on 10/6/2020. The course is immaculate. If you haven't played it and get the chance I highly recommend it, it's number 1 in Orange County for me personally and its not very close. Greens are as good as it gets. Conditioning is fantastic tee to green. Layout is fun and challenging. Customer service is top notch. Driving range is fantastic, as is the chipping green out on the range, and the massive putting green by the first tee box. Highest Recommendations.
Played out here 3 days ago on 6/14 early in the morning. Course was about what the previous reviewer stated. Generally good conditions definitely nothing like prime winter out here around january to march but solid. Fairways were nice starting to brown in areas but very playable. Rough was good again also a little dry. Only difference I would say was for us the greens were definitely drying out and the speed was very slow, although still pretty smooth. Good tough layout with tons of water off the tee. Wouldn't over-pay for this one right now due to the greens but not bad if you live in the area.
Got the opportunity to play Hacienda today, I had heard really good things about this place and it lived up to the expectations. Course is lush, in top notch condition. What a great design with such a variety of holes. Greens are amazing, bent grass, sign said 10.5 but everyone in the group felt they were a touch faster. Really no complaints, such a hidden gem back there, would love to play here on the regular if I could. Clubhouse is set up on top of a hill with a great view. Felt like a mini-riviera out there. Highly recommend if you ever have the opportunity.
Walked the north course yesterday 5/17/2020 at 8:50am. We knew the course had punched about 5 days prior and therefore had low expectations for the greens. To our surprise, although they had alot of sand on them and looked bad, they actually were firm and rolled surprisingly smooth at medium speeds, really never saw any major bounces offline throughout the day. Fairways were great, full coverage with a few browning spots here and there. Rough was definitely much less penal than in the winter around PGA tournament time, easy to play out of for the most part, occasional tough spots. Some tee boxes have also been punched with sanding didnt affect play much. Weather was great as was the POP at about 4:15. If you're paying the high out of town prices you might want to wait for the greens to heal for another 2 weeks but they really played as well as most courses in Orange County.
