Hadn’t played here in many years as the layout and general poor condition kept us away unless as a course of last resort. Was pleasantly surprised to find things have markedly improved. Greens are good, roll well and quick for the most part. Fairways are hit or miss but seem to be improving. This course smartly has covered up the old sand traps and turned them into grass bunkers. I wish more clubs would do that instead of keeping ill maintained bunkers fill or dirt and rocks. Tee boxes rather chewed up. Price is right at $34 weekday am. Staff was exceptionally friendly. No chance to partake of food or beverages today.
Played here day after “Bomb Cyclone” hit NorCal. Must admit the course must drain nicely as we couldn’t even tell it rained the week before. Greens are tricky and very hard to read. Some transition areas are ground under despair. The fairways are subtly undulating so level lies are rare. Not quite as brutal as it’s made up to be if you play smart though. Bunkers thin in spots, but mostly playable. Grabbed a hot dog at the turn and it was delicious!
Seems like Yucaipa is at long last turning around. Greens are more than decent now, fairways much improved from my last visit here. For $34 weekday am with their rewards program, it’s a good deal. Rack rate of $52 not so much. Bunkers even seem a bit better, although they’re still just groomed dirt like all IE courses in this price range. Just glad this course is playable again as it’s such a nice balanced design for the average golfer. Staff is always friendly, did not have chance today to try and rate food service. One tip though, don’t book an early am Wed round you will slam into the very slow playing men’s club on the back nine. We spent as much time playing 13-18 as we did 1-12.
Played here on a cold Tuesday morning. Super friendly at pro shop and especially the starter. Course is generally in good shape. Wide fairways, but well defended greens. Fast firm fairways. Greens were quick but rolled true. Very firm also, anything hole high bounced to the back of the green and good chips had a shocking amount of rollout. Bunkers were variable in condition, with some of them having very thin, penal sand. No chance to try out food or bev service of any kind.
After the slew of recent GKer reviews from the outing, not too much to add but like to comment again about the superb greens, fairways and overall condition of the course. Challenge and design of this course is just right in my opinion. Mix of very different holes that will make you use every club in the bag. Frequent visits by 2 very friendly cart girls. One blemish-I’m not too keen that as we were starting we were informed that a 4th would be joining our threesome and the starter politely asked us to give up our carts and ride up together as strangers. We were offered a cart that had a divider, but it would be better if they informed us at check in and given the option of paying extra for our own cart-on top of the $153 we already paid to play. I know courses are trying to max revenue, but there’s got to be a better way of handling this.
Played here on a Friday morning for $99. Quite a deal for that price as Shadowridge is at least as good as other CV courses that cost 50-75% more. Greens are smooth and average speed but challenging as everything breaks. Fairway lies are not plush but good coverage and ball sits just enough. Nice fluffy sand in most bunkers. It’s a Faldo course. Not sure how much input he had in the design but several holes had us cussing out Sir Nick as bunkers are placed in tough spots with false fronts you can’t see from the fairway. Lots of very long and very short par 4s. No food or cart service due to Covid.
Played the Boulder course a week after it came out of hibernation. Fairways and tee boxes are immaculate. Nice sand in bunkers. Greens while smooth rolling remain sloooow. Strangely for as slow as the greens were, they had signs ant and noticeable runout after approach shots or pitches. A bit pricey at $79 weekday am, but that’s probably the going rate in the PS area once the season starts up. Friendly check in and Cart girl, did not stop to eat.
Played here Wed am a couple of weeks after aeration. Greens which the last time we played here were surprisingly good have taken a turn for the worse. Bumpy, pock is marked in spots and some greens seem like those infested with nematodes like at Yucaipa. Fairways are as usual scruffy. Bunkers seem to be groomed up and dirt (not sand) in them relatively soft. Doing a lot of work on the tee boxes and some areas of the fairway, so they’re trying it seems. As always, all the staff especially the nice lady in the snack bar are friendly. Despite its flaws, this course is popular and still a decent value due to price and free breakfast/lunch/drink/range balls as part of the deal for $35 weekday,
Beautiful views on a tight, challenging course. Poor value when considering the price of this course and the condition of the greens, lots of unrepaired ballmarks and bumpy in spots. Fairways are thin but playable, tee boxes are beat up as well. Pace of play was surprisingly good.
Snuck in a quick round on a Sunday afternoon. Terrific playing conditions, best greens I’ve putted on in a while. Fairway lies are good. Rough is gnarly especially around the greens. Course looks open and straightforward, but rather penal after you get your drive out there. Played ion a very hot afternoon which made it tough-very little shade out there. No cart service, but a halfway hut after 9 serves drinks and basic food. Everyone is really friendly and Covid conscious.
We’ve been eagerly anticipating the return of Moreno Valley Ranch, now Rancho Del Sol for a while. Glad to report it’s been worth the wait. Greens are in terrific condition-smooth, undulating and accept iron shots and pitches with minimum rollout. Fairways are thin and yellowish in color but playable. Sand in bunkers was good. Some rough spots off the fairway and GUR but all in all a great value for a $55 weekday morning round. Basically the same course we remembered except for #18 which is now a par 3. FYI-for the most part my GPS yardage was accurate except for this hole.

As before, front and back nines have a very different character with the back (Mountain) 9 reminding us of certain courses in Corona like Dos Lagos or Hidden Valley. Front nine is tougher in my opinion though.

Club house is still a work in progress, but there’s a very basic grill and bar with patio seating. Staff from the pro shop, starter and especially the young lady manning the snack bar are super friendly. Hats off to the management and ownership!
Got out to Yucaipa today. Looks like they’ve had some time to do some badly needed maintenance. Fairways were better than I’ve seen them in a long time. Greens are shaggy and slooow but better than before the shutdown. Lots of GUR though. Bunkers were better than any time in recent memory.

Course is very Covid conscious which I appreciate. Single riders per cart, no rakes in bunkers, good check in procedures. Had a kid driving around reminding people to keep their masks on. It’s been interesting to see the varied approaches to how to handle the flagsticks at different courses. Yucaipas is by far the worst. They tell you the flagsticks are removed and cups are in the center of the green. They put a tiny blue flag in the hole which you can barely see on the green and certainly not easily from the fairway. Bottom line, had lots of good iron shots very far from the hole. Other than that, just grateful to be out on a beautiful morning.
