Walked the Blues (6008/70.7/128) in 4H, 40M mid day with the SLO Co GC. Windy, clear and around 75. $20 to walk on the SLO Co. Card is a good deal.

Tees had okay coverage but were not good IMO. Too many divots and not a fan of kikuyu tees.

Fairways winter thin, very playable.

Rough winter thin with a few bare areas. Maintained low but the inconsistency of the lies can be penal. Many hardpan areas if you get more than 20 yards away from the fairways.

Sand traps played nice. Well maintained with thick sand/dirt.

Greens putted smooth and medium fast. Consistent from green to green and receptive to holding iron shots.

Customer service was excellent. Carts are upgraded with nice GPS. No on course services available due to COVID-19, but the restaurant was open with limited service.

Nine hole course that has three par 5's, 4's and 3's. So when you play it twice to get in 18 holes, it's a rarity to get in six par 5's and six par 3's on a 18 hole regulation round. Players coming off #9 making the turn having priority over players starting on #1. I like the layout, good variety of holes. Top Tracer practice range that you rent stalls by the half hour includes a green to practice sand/chipping/pitching shots in addition to the practice holes that you can also play for a fee. Challenging track that will test your game, especially in the wind, which always seems to blow here. Constantly up/down hills, challenging course to walk. Recommended.

Walked the Blues (2002/29.7/95.0) in 2H early afternoon. $14 to walk nine holes on a Sunday afternoon. Played with Cal Poly SLO recent graduates Garret and Lindsay, very pleasant 2some to be matched with. Breezy, clear and in the 70's made for a nice stroll.

I may well be the first person in history to play Sea Pines Golf Resort the same week they played Pebble Beach Golf Links. Those 2 courses are about as far apart as you can get on the golf course spectrum. This course is close to Costco and I wanted to quickly get in a few swings, perfect fit.

Had played here once before, so knew what to expect. Executive par 31 layout. You have two par 3's to start, then four medium to short par 4's, then finish with three par 3's, two of which are over 200 yards. Has some fun holes with a couple of lakes to play over or around, not a complete push over. Playing conditions were about as expected.

Tees really chewed up even for an executive/par 3 course. Many are crowned and did not look like any divots had been repaired in a good while.

Fairways and rough both a mixture of grasses with decent coverage, winter thin.

There are no sand traps on this course.

Greens putted medium speed and had a decent amount of ball marks. Firm, I actually made more than my share of putts, so I should not complain.

Couple I was with took a cart that was upgraded with nice GPS. No on course services. Well stocked, small pro shop that had a very friendly attendant who was your starter/cart person and guy behind the counter. Restaurant on site had a bunch of people eating outside. Nice views of Morro Rock and Morro Bay on several holes.

Rough around the edges, but if you do not have unrealistic expectations, could be a fun round. Recommended with that in mind.

Walked the Blacks (6360/70.8/119) in 4 1/2H mid morning for the SLO Card rate of $27. Played with the MB Mens Club. Foggy, overcast and breezy in the 60's.

Kikuyu tees decent with good coverage, but more unfixed divots than usual.

Kikuyu fairways nice to play from.

Mostly kikuyu rough fairly lush and thick. Very little roll and will grab your clubs trying to escape.

Only a few sand traps on this layout and they are well maintained with fine, brown dirt/sand.

Smallish poa annua greens putted medium speed and held irons well.

Almost never any on course services here, COVID or not. No GPS on the basic carts, small driving range that is shorter clubs only. Customer service was excellent, quick efficient check in, friendly starter. Recommended, solid, fun to play old school layout.

Walked the Golds (6454/73.2/137) in 4H, 20M mid morning. CPO if riding. Like others, I took advantage of the Inn being closed because of COVID and was "only" required to pay the golf fee. After playing in a gale in May, the weather was great this time. Started out in the 50's but was 70 by the end of the round. Calm most of the round, 1-2 club wind the last few holes. Played with John and Dan, and our forecaddie was Jerry, who was very nice and helpful.

Having walked the course once before definitely assisted. Alex's review of 2 days ago was spot on and especially captured the essence of the greens and sand traps perfectly. The course was immaculate overall.

Tees lush, almost immaculate. Only thing I did not rate 10/10, and they got a 9/10.

Fairways were immaculate.

Primary rough surprisingly even, about 2.5", lush and THICK. Usually difficult to play out of, several times our group had balls we could not locate until almost on top of them not that far off fairways. Every hole has some native areas that are a likely lost ball.

Traps were amazing. Lots of nice, fluffy sand. And I had 4 fairway and 5 greenside opportunities to sample them.

Had a good putting day my first round @ PB. Today experienced what Alex mentioned prominently in his review. Had 2 chip in 0 putts, otherwise my putting numbers would have been unusually high. Small poa greens remind me very much of the Donald Ross course I grew up playing back in N.C. Greens rolled great in spite of my not making hardly any putts.

Customer Service outstanding. Asked if I could purchase a replacement bag tag for the one that was stolen several months ago, they gave me a replacement. Much appreciated! All grass range across the street was available before the round. Got there early and hit some different wedges on a simulator indoor set up as hole #7. Pro Shop and shops open this visit. Masks required at check-in and when dealing with all P.B. personnel, not required on the course. No on course services today. New TW designed par 3 course looks about ready for prime time. Highly recommended.

Walked the Blues (6443/71.3/128) mid day in 4H, 45M with Mnielson, Doris and Adam. SLO GC event, sunny and breezy in the mid 60's. $49 to walk.

Tees had okay coverage but far too many unfixed divots.

Fairways winter thin with probably the most divots of any fairways I have played on in a long time. Mowed low with lots of undulation and roll.

Rough also winter thin mowed down in the 1.5 to 2.5" range, Very inconsistent, but usually not penal to play out of, you could almost always see 3/4+ of the ball. Rough farther from the fairway is native, probable lost ball.

Sand decent to play from, more fine dirt than sand.

Large greens were firm and putted medium fast. I like the greens here, the ball rolled very well.

No on course services with COVID. Customer service was good from all encountered. Busy driving range and they have a putting and chipping practice area. Carts are basic, no GPS. Nice layout, fun course to play in decent condition. Difficult enough w/o beating you up. Recommended.

Walked the Blues (6083/69.9/119) in 4H, 15M midday playing with the Morro Bay Men's Club. Played with Amid, Jim and Gene, nice guys to play with. Clear, sunny and windy in the 60's made for challenging conditions. I wasted a well above average ball striking day on a day I putted and chipped well below average.

Since the temp is almost always between 55 and 80 here, the playing conditions are remarkably consistent year round. MB is among the most unusual courses I have ever played from a difficulty standpoint. If you looked at the scorecard yardages and I told you there were no water hazards, only a few greenside traps, no fairways traps and that on most holes you would have to work at it to go OB or lose a ball, you think really easy course. But the hilly terrain, huge trees, kikuyu, often windy conditions and the small, sloping greens give many players as much as they can handle. Many of the short holes play uphill, into the prevailing wind or both and end up playing anything but short. And several of the longer yardage holes play easier because they are straight downhill, downwind or both. Very deceptive holes based solely on yardages.

Kikuyu tees well maintained with good coverage.

Kikuyu fairways nice to play from.

Mostly kikuyu rough fairly lush and thick. Very little roll and tough to chip out of.

Few sand traps on this layout and they are well maintained.

Smallish poa annua greens putted medium speed and very receptive to holding well struck shots. Greens putted slower than normal and they looked. I never adjusted well to the slower speed greens.

Almost never any on course services here. No GPS on the basic carts, small driving range. Customer service was excellent, quick efficient check in, friendly starter. Fun, solid, old school layout, Recommended.

Walked the Blues (6157/70.6/121) in 4H with Mnelison, Les and Larry. Fun group to play with, we switched partners every 6 holes in a handicap team format. Partly cloudy, around 65 and calm. $40 holiday rate.

Old school, tight parkland layout with most holes surrounded by homes on one or both sides. Par 70 with five par 3's and three par 5's. Several holes have lakes that are hidden from the golfers vantage point when they are making the shot approaching the lake. Numerous tees are a long way from the last green as you cross streets and go through residential areas.

Tees were decently maintained with good coverage.

Both the rough and fairways were winter thin. Very playable and well maintained.

Sand traps were decently maintained with darker sand.

Greens were excellent. Medium fast and smooth, firm but still held full shot approaches well.

Quick, efficient check in, no services offered under COVID-19. Restaurant offered takeout only on a limited menu. Small range on mats that is not full size. Not my favorite layout overall, but it has some fun holes. Many potentially scoreable holes with some really demanding holes, #10 is one of the toughest par 4's I have ever played and #6 is one of the toughest par 3's I encounter as well. Both are long holes with water short and left very much in play. Recommended.

Rode the Blacks (6669/71.9/128) 12/29 with GDR23 in 3H, 40M mid day. Seemed alot longer, we waited almost every shot on 3somes in front of us. 60's, sunny and breezy.

Conditions were VERY lush, almost immaculate across the board.

Tees extremely lush and well maintained with few unfixed divots.

Fairways lush and very nice to play from.

Rough is 2-3", lush and thick.

Sand traps have high quality white marble sand and are among the best I play anywhere.

Large greens are firm/smooth and putted medium fast speed.

No GPS on the basic carts or ports for electronics. No driving range, you have to go 1/2 mile down the street where the sister Santa Rosa course has a nice, all grass driving range. No on course services with COVID. Very unusual that they let us drive our morning round carts from Santa Rosa 1/2 mile down surface streets to San Gorgonio. Highly recommended, best conditioned course I have played in the Palm Springs area this year.

Rode the Blacks (6720/72.1/127) early morning with GDR23 in 3H, 20M. Overcast, calm and in the 40's when we teed off, but sunny, breezy in the 60's when we finished.

Course played long after the first rain of the season the day before. Lush and green throughout with snow capped mountains in the distance made for great scenery today. Over seeding much thicker than when I played here earlier in the month. Santa Rosa would be a challenging course to walk with many tees are a long way from the last green.

Tees lush, level and nicely maintained with very few unfixed divots.

Fairways lush and nice to play from.

Rough thick/lush and in the 2.5" range. Penal when wet, not that bad once it dried out.

Sand traps nicely maintained with thick, good quality dark sand.

Large greens putted medium fast, smooth and are firm. Few ball marks, they rolled nice!

Customer service is usually good from everyone here. No on course services due to COVID. Nice, all grass driving range. Basic carts do not have GPS or ports for electronics. Definitely recommended.

Rode the Blacks (6669/71.9/128) for 36 holes using UP. Less than 2.5H POP as a single first out. Then around 4H POP with Gary and Scott mid day, very nice guys to get matched up with. 70's, sunny and windy.

Customer service usually exceptional here, but today was a cluster. San Gorgonio Pro Shop closed, so they have you check in @ MV Santa Rosa 1/2 mile away. Would have been nice to have been advised of that beforehand, especially with it being prepaid? After the morning round, had to drive back to Santa Rosa to check in for the replay round. Could not do it over the phone, had to be in person? Was told even though several holes were vacant, could not play Santa Rosa because "X" hours were booked exclusively for men's club play? And they do not even give you a receipt, all they do is radio the guy @ San Gorgonio I was standing beside when I called to schedule the replay that I'm good to go? So drove back to San Gorgonio for 18 more rather than wait on 1 pm for "outside" play @ Santa Rosa. I'm sorry, but that whole plan is poorly thought out.

Tees lush and well maintained with few unfixed divots.

Fairways lush and very nice to play from.

Rough is 2-3", lush and thick.

Sand traps have high quality white marble sand and were excellent.

Large over seeded greens are firm/smooth and putt medium fast speed.

No GPS on the basic carts or ports for electronics. No driving range, you have to go 1/2 mile down the street where the sister Santa Rosa course has a nice, all grass driving range. No on course services with COVID.

Rode the Blues (6711/72.9/135) in slightly under 4H early afternoon with GK Guru's John, Ron and Kevin. Fun and easy paced, relaxed group to play with. Thanks to John for setting up and to Classic Club for having the guru group out. Mid 60's, clear and very calm by Classic Club standards.

Fun Arnold Palmer design, nice elevation changes, lakes and valleys coupled with trees that would make you think this is more of a mountain than desert course make C.C. a very unique layout for this area.

Tees level and lush with good coverage. Most divots already maintained.

Fairways mostly lush with a few thin areas here and there.

Rough lush. Nice to chip from as the ball usually sat up.

Sand traps excellent with deep, thick, fine sand that both looked and played great. Rakes provided on the carts.

Greens firm and medium fast. Many had spots that did not look good, but they putted excellent.

Customer service was excellent from everyone encountered as always here. Drink cart out making the rounds. Upgraded carts with nice GPS and ports for electronics. Complementary water and good range balls on a 1st class grass practice facility. Huge, beautiful clubhouse, everything about this place is top notch. Definitely recommended.

Rode the Blues (6642/72.3/133) with GK Guru's Vince, Marvin and Gary early morning in slightly more than 4H. Fun group to play with! The weather was calm and sunny. Cold when we started a little late after a frost delay, but had warmed nicely into the 60's by the time we finished a little before noon. Thanks to John for setting up and to Indian Wells for having the guru group out.

Tees lush with few divots. No challenges getting level lies.

Fairways lush and provided excellent lies.

Rough lush and not overly penal.

Sand traps nicely maintained with good quality sand.

Greens good, but not great. They looked quicker than they were. They putted medium slow early morning and were up to medium speed by the end of the round. Not as smooth as previous visits here. Firm and lots of unfixed ball marks.

Beautiful with lots of water features and flowers. Tougher than average layout. Constantly up/down hills and the large green complexes are challenging. Fourteen par 4's with only two par 5's and two par 3's, par 72. Good mix of par 4's. This course would be a beast to walk as numerous holes are a long way from the last green.

Customer service exceptional as always here. Complementary range balls on an all grass range is always a plus. Cart person around numerous times. Excellent GPS on the carts. Large clubhouse, restaurant and pro shop, highly recommended.
