Played Cimarron Boulder Saturday 4/10 with a 9:36 slot. Uncle Jimmy and I saw the wind farms a turnin' as we had a tailwind coming down Whitewater pass into Palm Spings. Fortuneatly, the winds were pretty much calm by the time you pull in to town. The bag drop, pro shop and the starter, were all professional and courteous. We gave ourselves plenty of time to warm up on the practice green and the all grass range. We were paired up with two gentlemen from the great state of Oregon, Paul and Harry.
The previous review was right, the overall condition of the course was green and lush, except for the greens. The greens were in good shape, but on the drier side. They were firm underfoot and to approach shots. Approach shots from beyond 150yds would have a pretty good skipping bounce and would need more green real estate to still end up on the dance floor. They were cut pretty tight and putting at medium speed. The areas around the greens were great for the short game. The bunkers were all found with nice clean and fully teased sand. The first and only cut of rough, was about an inch in depth and perfect for lies to hit from. The tees were fine.
This style layout, does not have a higher slope rating, but it's not a pushover either. Like the last reviewer suspected, it does get tougher with the winds. By the the 4th hole the breeze came up and felt good, by the 8th hole we had 1-2 club sidewinds, and almost 2-3 club headwinds. We endured and adapted, and still had a good time with good scores to show for it.
The drink cart came around twice. There were sandbottles on the carts, and there were rakes with the bunkers. POP was 4:40. Good customer service.
Played this morning in the SCGA Amat Net Qualifier...last flight 9:30am hole 10. Paired with real gentlemen, Darin, Mo, and Edwin. They represent thier clubs well.
We had winds really come up starting about hole 12, had to really plan the shots due to it. TuKwet's bar is still closed and no food, but the drink cart came around about twice on each 9. The range is open and in much greener shape than previous reports. The practice greens were both open and matched the champions green conditions.
Tee boxes were in fair shape, many divots and most were pretty firm. No problem finding a spot to hit from, but, I could have easily used a half a sand bottle on each box.
Fairways, liked them. They are in a good balance right now, on thier way to lush, with some winter roll-out still there, yet they will now start eating some of the ball energy on the first bounce. Good coverage right to the edge of rough and bunkers.
Rough, thick and rich like a shake, not a DQ Blizzard, just a regular shake. About 2 inches thick and will be factor in your recovery shots from it. Right now, the blades of rough are still thinner and not as lush.
Bunkers, have sand, are void of rocks and there are rakes. However, the sand is darker, slightly reddish and gets dense quickly. About a half inch on top will give easily, below that it goes dense pretty quickly. It seems to hold moisture all day too.
Areas around greens were/are similar to the rough, just a smidge shorter. All my weapons are sharp and with little bounce, so I had little issue going after a pitch or a flop. Because we had a tournment, any areas aroung the greens that were still trying to emerge, or had some kind of old guy bald spots(not many)...they were marked within white lines for relief.
Greens, these were pretty good, slightly firm under the feet and not many ball marks occurring. Uniform speeds and breaks, to me, these were running med-fast. The mid-roll breaks were pretty easy to read and execute. The final slower trailing breaks were tougher, but if you had reads without breaks...they would still roll true.

No foam in cups, rakes in bunkers, gps on carts(good, my LRF battery began to die on the last 3 holes) that is pretty acurate. Bathrooms open and all clean. Customer service quick and thorough.

A shout out to the SCGA staff for being engaging, patient, guiding and human. BTW, my cart partner Darin, got an eagle on hole 4, and then followed that up by driving the green on hole 5 for a birdie look. He also qualified highest in his flight and will compete in the actual tournament at La Costa...congrats!!
Played Sterling Hills for the first time, on 2/20. Had our semi-final cup 16 match, starting at noon and finishing with POP in 4.75 hours. Weather was great, 60's temps, calm at noon and about 10 knot winds starting around 1pm. Range, practice and chipping greens all open. Snack bar open.
The white tees were pretty chewed today, lots of divots, some filled and some not(there were sand bottles on the carts). I saw some were aerated, and some had some slight crowns that made you search for a better footing to tee advantage. Thier tee boxes seem smaller than most, not as wide, and not as long.

The fairways were winter thin and firm, with plenty of rollout. A little dry too, like the winds had been here for a few days prior. Still playable.

The rough was both thin and thick kikuyu. Mostly dry as well. Try to stay away from the rough under the canopy of the many eucalyptus trees...the kikuyu seems to not do well in winter there.

The traps, had real sand...and juuust deep enough, to honor how traps should be.

The areas around the greens were mostly cut enough the have the ball sit up nicely. On the par 3 15th, I missed left and this area was thicker than most and sticky for the flop I attempted.

The greens were tricky for me today. Firm and with plenty of ball marks. I thought they were med-fast. It seemed like approaches from beyond 150 lost a lot holding power. Spend extra time on the practice greens, it should pay dividends.

The drink cart came around twice, no rakes, mats on the range, 1 drink and range balls included with the green fee. Marshall on duty and good customer service. Had a good match with John, Eric & Perry...I'd play here again.
Played Jurupa Hills Friday 1/15 with a 10:15 slot. The pro shop and the Marshall scrambled, and found me another walk-on single(Fred) at the last minute, because the original 3 some refused to play in those high winds. By hole#3, I invite the twosome of young guns(Carlos & Ryan) already on our tail, to join us, and they accepted. We all played the white tees, which was smarter when you're having to scramble about the course in high winds. I read the Sierra Lakes review by chevelle, we were about 15 miles from him, but he clearly had worse winds.
Regardless, the course was in surprisingly good shape for Janurary. I was expecting to see a lot downed limbs, pinecones and other blowdown strewn about, but there wasn't. The greens crews were on top of things. No course conditions hindered our game that day. From tee to green, all elements were acceptable to have a good round.
Service was good in the pro shop and the diner/snack bar. All practice greens and the all grass range were open. The drink cart came by on each 9. Foam in cups, no rakes, and divot mix bottles were on the carts. 4:15 POP. Speaking of carts, the pro shop said thier new fleet of carts will arrive next week. We had 4 club headwinds, but it actually made for good golf fun and comradarie amongst strangers. I'll be back. Cheers,
Played here 12/13 with the GK outing. My first time playing in Borrego Spings area. Grouped up with fellow friendly GK members: Mike, Tony and Steve. Met many others as well, including Jack16, all the way from Ohio! Good course, good service, good company, and good times! Thanks for organizing this event.

As a pilgrim, I played safe and shot below my that also 'caps' my experience! That said, I will have way too much bias in rating this track. So let me just say, I will be back again, and recommend Rams Hill. Cheers,
Played here 12/10 at 10am with great GK members. We had sunny skies, no wind, in shorts and short sleeves temps. It gets better, the parking lot was only 2/3 full, so the range, putting and chipping greens, were easily accessed. Looked like the full compliment of workers were all on duty today, and looking after both golfers and the course, I appreciate that. The starter made sure we were following their group spacing, and understood today's pins were set at #4 plan(I should have processed this info better). I've played here before, but always from the III tees(whites). The Goose has been getting good fall reviews, the driver is in the bag for a change, and I'm feeling froggy today, so I decide to play the IV tees(blues) with Nick.
Tee boxes were in great shape, even the par 3 tees. By the way, there are 5 par 3's here, so come get your fix if that is your bag. But, look at that day's pin plan, and par 3 yardages, and really ponder before choosing the tees you play from. Only the par 3 2nd, played less than 170 from the blues, and that was because the pin was at the front. ;-) The par 3 16th was playing 223 from tee to pin. No GIR par 3's for me today.
Fairways were great to play from and in good fall health.
Rough was lush, and cut to useful depths for all occasions.
Traps were good, groomed, sand and no pebbles. I had no problem sweeping out of a fairway trap, and flubbed out of a nice greenside bunker(my bad). A few others were damp.
Areas around greens were good and playable, all favorable to pitches and chips. Believe me, I was pitching and chipping a lot today; luckily my wedge play was pretty reliable.
The greens were good and I saw them hold just about anything. My putting game was off, but the greens were on. They rolled fast and seemed to be cut tight. I should have practiced more on both putting greens to take better advantage of these conditions.
Saw drink cart twice on each nine. Course bathrooms open, foam in cups, no rakes, divot mix on carts, spacing was comfortable and POP was just about 4 hours. Had a good time. I'm fairly local to Goose Creek, and I proudly recommend it for this area. Cheers,
Played the blue tees at Shoboba Shprings resort with co-workers for a rewarding MGF outing. My first time back in over 25 years, for the rest, it's been a few years...why oh why have we not been back here sooner!? This place is in very good condition right now. We were scheduled to tee off at 12:20, but a tournament earlier delayed us by 20 minutes. We still finished in just under 4 hours and with plenty of light. We passed the tips tee box on 17 and sitting there is a TM r5...we reunite it with the the backtracking owner so he can breathe easier and use it on 18.
The tee boxes are all level, healthy and cut right...and will easily satisfy those with tee setup OCD.
The fairway cut is great, very lush and a good balance between soft landings and run outs. Divot scalps showed only good turf health.
The rough was at a good level of cut, just deep enough to get your 'easter egg' hunt fix, but not so deep to be penal to most hackers.
Fairway and greenside bunkers are in great condition and just a pleasure to play from. My partners allowed me lie relief from deep footprints...come on golfers, at least try to fix your footprints with what ya got(no rakes) when bunkers are this nice!
The greens are healthy, roll med/fast, not bumpy and in good pin hunting condition. The greens alone, made today's round totally enjoyable. Foam in cups.
Good customer service, all grass range open, practice greens open, snack bar open till 4:30, drink cart around on each 9, good accurate GPS on carts, virtual marshall on cart screen for POP, and single rider per cart availble as supplies last.
The weather made us spoiled golfers in shorts and short sleeves in November. I birdied 13, and Ed birdied a few holes later, but he isn't with I still posess the BC. I highly recommend Shoboba Shprings right now. Cheers,
Played the Champions course at Omni La Costa on 11/9 with GK Guru's. It was a pleasure to play some out of town golf and meet more GK'ers. Great weather to start the round, following the needed storm fronts that came through over the weekend.
Tees were good, I played the whites.
The fairways were still in very playable shape with dormant color coming in. Post rains, it was CPO. I saw a few areas staked as GUR and some areas that were marked for maintenance that will need it.
Traps, to be fair, we experienced some post-rains puddles and mud(silt leach down) in some bunkers. However, the ball always sat up in today's firm sand.
Greens were firm, fast and fun for me. Anything I legitimately threw at them, they held. The practice green matched the course greens for speed and break. Foam spacers in the cups.

No less than 8 staff members here, asked if I needed assistance, or they offered their services. Needless to say, customer service here is 'spot on' in my book! The pro shop was open, we saw the drink cart once per 9, the putting green was open, driving range was open(mats with adjustable tees), and the front and back 9 restrooms open. Good accurate GPS on attention to the creeks and runoff channels that the GPS presents to you; I wish I had, as I donated 5 balls to water hazards today! As the sun was setting on our round, the temps were dropping and I wish I had layered my duds better...November has arrived. I would definitely play here again.
"Go west young man, and grow up with the country"...grown up is overrated, but golf isn't! So, after the extra hour of sleep, I left the house and headed west to Knollwood 11/1, for a team match with Sr714/m.pugh. First time there for me and a good day for a match. The layout has mostly holes that are nestled in tree lined canyons with homes just beyond the trees. There's pretty much always an elevation change, so if this is your, get your fix here. It's fairly quiet, except for a few planes on approach to Van Nuys. We finished in about 4.5 POP on a Sunday. The tees were a little chewed but playable, we played from the whites. The fairways were good, and you'd get both helpful run out on some and soft saving landings on others. I had no issues hitting woods to wedges from any fairway lies today. The rough was good and not to fear(you won't quite lose your ball, but it will challenge you here and there). Now, the areas beyond the cuts of rough are dominated by canyon banking and pine trees. This means hitting the ball, either above or below your feet, with pine needles, twigs and pine don't expect grass in there(one should discipline oneself to avoid it). I will step out on a limb and say that the greens were putting med/fast. They were mostly tricky to me today on reading the break, because I do better when the practice greens are open. They were anywhere between softer and firmer,  but clearly accepting typical shots. Foam in cups.
The pro shop was open, the snack shop window was open, patio seating open with limited seating, no drink cart, putting green closed, 200yd max driving range open(mats), and the front and back 9 restrooms open. There's no water holes at Knollwood, and that helped me shoot 2 strokes below my handicap. My teammate had useful knowledge and strategies for Knollwood, so here's a shout out for Perry! I would play here again.
Played MMeadows 10/18, following behind thier men's club. Had a fun match with roarksown1, mcantos and kassper7. First time there for me. I like the layout; mature trees, plenty of elevation changes, doglegs, minimal water, and some key features that can't be taken lightly(holes 10 & 13). Putting green closed(d@mn), range open(mats), outside seating, no cash, and saw the drink cart twice. Clear skies and warm(the other GKer's all drove through 'pea soup' fog to get here).

Tees, we played the blues, level & healthy enough, and not too chewed up.
Fairways, healthy all around. Courses with this much elevation change usually have thier extra challenges of thin/bare spots and wet/soggy areas. We saw some of these, but there aren't too many(let's all avoid driving over and through them so they have a chance to heal).
Rough, you will see it all here...penal to short, and don't count on getting the good 'member's bounce' from the hillside rough. Choose your weapon wisely to hit from it.
Bunkers, sand. Pretty decent overall, I had some trouble getting out of, but that is all me. Why can't more courses have bunkers like this?
Greensides, in good shape all around, no problem for short recovery shots.
Greens, softer side and med speed. You can get the surfer's 'cresting wave' ball mark to fix. I had trouble reading the break more than the speed(I'll blame C19 and the closed practice green). I 3 putted way too much. Foam sleeve in cups. About a third of the holes had more extreme pin pins as far forward and blue pins as far back as possible(probably for the men's club).

I think we finished in a little over 4.5 hours. Overall, happy with the conditions, and it was a pleasure competing here as well. Thanks to Robert and the guys for setting up this round here! Recommended.
Played 10/10/2020 1:12pm in 4.5 hrs. Only north most putting green open, but range fully open from the mats. Check in, bar, cart loading and starter all on duty and made for swell customer service and beginning to round(did I just use the word swell?!?!).
Played with Uncle Jimmy, and paired up with an awesome local couple for a fun and enjoyable October round. BTW, Yucaipa has the best golf course bloody mary's...period! Ashwood is a very close second! You get the same quality bloody mary from the beverage cart as you do from the bar! It's grandma's recipe, don't ask, they won't share it to you. ;-)
Tee boxes mowed tight and lightly fertilized, but level and without issues(we played the whites and reds).
Fairways were great, just a few soggy spots here and there around some sprinklers. Divot scalps were uniform and healthy.
Rough was good, some areas were friendly, and some not so much. Either way, it kept run out off fairway under control. Some courses bring the fairway cut right to thier fairway bunkers. Yucaipa gives you a fighting chance by averaging 2- 4 yards of rough between the fairway cut and bunker. We still found our fair share of bunkers anyway.
Bunkers were fine, no issues sweeping for distance, or wedging for flight n bite.
Areas around greens were mostly playable and predictable to wedge from. Every green with a nearby water hazard, had patchy growth between the hazard and fringe.
Greens, night and day better than 2018/2019. Way better than early 2020. Slightly better than July 2020. Holes 7, 8, 17 & 18 still have green acne issues(7 & 18 being the worst). They were rolling fast, with very little break, as they are mowed very tight. Still, you get what you want from lofted/normal/forwardpressed putts now(been awhile since this could happen here). All those wonderful approach shots I witnessed by sbogey in Feburary, would have a fighting chance to bite and hold now ;-)
We let a fast 3 some play through, and offered the same to a 2 some on hole 15( they declined). Group spacing felt covid comfortable. Good to see continual improvements.
Played twilight round Sat 9/26 with Uncle Jimmy, his first round back from 2 months off of knee replacement recovery. We match up and he takes the back 9 to my front 9, by two, for 2 points to my 1... d%mn ! I suggest Colton GC for his benefit as first game back, and my practice for team cup...Jeez, 2 months off and he takes best advantage of strokes on last three holes on me! Well, at least I secured a birdie on hole 3 for our birdie chain. He bought the loiter lagers on hole 19.
Played da blues, par 57, 3108/54.2/82, for a busy round at 3.5 hrs POP(everyone was here!) Range is open, mats and turf. The putting greens, and pitching greens are all open, but without flags/pins. Tees are rough and ridin' hard, but always flat(I'll take that). Mainly par 3's, so go ahead and leave your tees in your pocket and get as much kikuya lie approach practice as you want. Greens here are just as flippin' covid 19 soft as everyone else's initial roll speed with med2slow break. Greens are small, and always rewarding when you get a GIR and birdie opp. This place can either irritate you, help your game...or both.
