Played today on a cold AM. Great easy 3 H round. First off and was grateful when the sun came over the hills. Played Valley/Desert as Mountain had frost delay (no kidding). Great friendly check in by staff. Found the course to be in excellent condition. Tee boxes all had good coverage and no issues. Fairways were green and lush with only a few bare spots on some, just due to needing more sunlight. Large Oak trees cover some of these areas and warmer weather will bring more grass to these areas, no doubt. Very little rough but what was there was playable. There are enough desert areas and OB areas to provide enough problem issues, as is. Had great lies and roll out all round. Traps (in one) were a little hard and could use a good turning of the sand. Greens were not mowed on Valley when I started but they still putted great and had good speed. Desert greens were mowed and they had plenty of speed. All greens were lush/green and devoid of divots. $55 senior rate was very reasonable IMO given the condition of the course and staff treatment. This is one course I wish was a little closer, as it would get a lot more playing time from me. I really enjoy the differences in the 3 9's on this course.

Was able to get out yesterday around 11 and able to finish in 3 H. Course was running very smoothly and found no backups. The new management group is really (IMO) making this course much better. All the tee boxes were in very good shape. # 6, 12 and 13 were redone and are still not open. Notice says by end of the month. The fairways had very good coverage, so the lies were good and plenty of roll out. Traps (in 2) were playable and clean. Others appeared the same way. Greens were rolling very nicely with good speed. Customer service was excellent at all levels. IMO this course is much more enjoyable than it has been in many years. Someone said the rates have been raised? Not for seniors with a card (still 16 walking). So check ahead just in case?

Played today. First off with no POP issues. + they do not let back 9 players on, so no issue there. Fairways still remain thin but with more daylight hours, they are greening up more. Only had 1 CPO today on # 16 and that is because it just needs more sun in that one low area. While the fairways are thin, they provided good lies and good roll out. Tee boxes are all fine. In a couple traps and sand was consistent in each and all others looked the same, so I personally had no issues with them. Greens are rolling great with good speed, especially when above the hole. They chip and putt really nice. Excellent customer service as always, at all levels. Liked the fact I saw the maintenance person tapping down all the divots as I was playing. Nice touch.

Played today in a nice 3 H POP. Course is drying out. Tee boxes are all fine. Fairways have good coverage but the bermuda is beginning to brown in many areas. They could definitely use more water than what they are getting from the sprinkler system. Greens are drying out as well. They are not as good as several weeks ago and are not very fast when chipping, putting. Customer service is great, as always (thanks Mr Fierro). Still a great early (10:30) twilight special every day.

Joined some friends who needed a 4th, due to frost delay as one went home. Had not intended to play yesterday due to cold weather, so this greatly improved my day. Weather was cool but comfortable so it was an enjoyable round. Not much to report since my last review on course conditions. But the work is finished (at least on these holes). Extended cart path on # 3 to be able to drive a cart up to the back of the tee (long overdue and needed), New tee box on # 6. New tee boxes on 12/13. So with the new tees and until they open them for play, they have moved the markers up. This makes the course play shorter (some may like - some may not). Personally it did not bother me. Perhaps they are planning to start using the Black SCGA markers in the future, which would add some length and challenges to certain holes. Customer service excellent at all levels. And I also noticed that they are working on the range and it is closed during certain hours of the day, so call ahead if you are going to just go to the range.

Played this AM. First out no POP issues. Found the tee boxes to all be fine. Traps looked fine and heard no complaints. Some of the bermuda rough around the greens is very dry and the ball will disappear, calling on good chipping skills. Fairways are green but not lush. They do provide good roll out and good lies. But hitting from thin fairways is crucial for good results. All the greens (though wet at the start) were in great shape (except 15 more later) and chipped/putted just fine and had good speed. # 15 green is still not looking good IMO. I hope they can fix it? Customer service excellent at all levels. They are running a S B special for those interested. Call the pro shop.

Played today after reading the review from Weber. I had never played here before and am glad I now have. I will agree totally with what he has provided previous to my review. He had overcast. I had clear skies and fantastic views of the LA basin. Course is located right at the base of all the tv towers one can see on Mt Wilson. If you have not played here, I would recommend it. It is truly not like your typical Par 60 course by any means. Tremendous OB areas on almost every hole. If you are a slicer I do not recommend this place (LOL). But if you like challenging holes and greens and want to test your short game, by all means this is the place. $21 with cart (senior rate). If you play or have played, you will know why you want a cart, after you have left # 11 an play the back 9. As I am not far away unlike Weber, I fully intend to play here a lot more.

UPDATE:1-29

I played there today they are doing significant work on the course they have put new tee boxes on number 6 12 + 13 as well as a new cart path on number three all of these holes have been significantly shortened due to the work in progress so people should check with the course to see if they want to play before they go

Played a mid morning round today. Done in 2.5 H as I missed the early crowd and later arrivals. Course has dried out nicely. Tee boxes in good shape. Fairways had good coverage and roll out. Not in any traps but they all appeared fine. Greens are still in good shape. Held shots well and good release. Chip/putt very nicely with good speed. Excellent customer service. I was told that they would be doing some tee box work and cart path repairs soon (saw no evidence of prep today), so check with course before you go play.

First off this morning. 3 H POP for $49 is well worth it. Course has started to show its colors and is improving. Now that the weather is warming, the fairways are greening up and showing good life. Though damp this AM when we started, they still all played very well. Tee boxes are lush and over seeding took well. Traps were all fine (in one and all others looked fine). Rough was 1" and damp sticky. Greens were terrific (IMO). Chipped/putted very well and had excellent speed (and all mowed before we arrived at any hole). Had two CPO holes but no others. I can only think that as it warms up (please) the course will even get better?

Got the first time this AM. Maybe not such a good idea-LOL. Cold and foggy for the first 3 holes and sun finally came out on back 9 (but still foggy). Tee boxes were lush and playable (except # 7) all round. Fairways are thin at this time, but dry and with good roll (not the first 9, too damp) just have to know how to hit thin lies (practice makes perfect). No real areas of rough to deal with. But of course OB and water are present on many holes. No traps today but they all looked fine. Greens are really good. Chip/putt great with speed and don't be above the hole. Customer service was excellent at all levels. $40 with cart for senior rate. If you do not mind thin fairways, I recommend. And I wish you warmer weather.

Got out early before the holiday crowds. Course is in nice shape at the moment. Good coverage on the tee boxes. Fairways are green (and dry) with some browning of the bermuda, but does not effect the lies or roll. Traps are still in need of more sand? Rough for the most part is cut down and playable. Greens are in great shape. Chip/putt with good speed. Customer service excellent.

Have company from E Coast visiting and wanted a course that would not be too difficult, as they have not played much recently. Was able to secure the first spot this AM. POP was 2.5 H riding (but an easy course to walk as well). Course conditions are improving, but the course is still trying to dry out and some areas still need more assistance. As stated before, the management is now under Billy Casper Golf. They now also control the maintenance staff, which previous management did not. It is making a difference IMO. Today, all the greens were mowed ahead of us as we made our way around the course. Never had to wait for anyone cutting the greens, as in the past. And the greens were very good. It looked like in addition to cutting they were also rolling them? Very pleased with the way they chipped/putted and with good speed (unlike my last round). Fairways have good grass coverage and provide good lies IMO. Not in any traps, but some looked good, others not, so perhaps they will work on those? No issues with any rough. Course does have numerous OB areas that can cause issues, if one is not careful. Tee boxes were all clean and playable (unlike my last round). Found the customer service to be excellent. Conditions are very good at present to have an enjoyable round of golf. Nice to come back an play a course that had some issues previously and to see them taken care of. Good signs IMO.
