Thanks to Johnny for setting up a Guru round and thanks to Indian Wells Golf Resort for having us out. Always an enjoyable round playing with Gary and Steve in my group. The club house and pro shop are very nice. There is a nice grass driving range with balls included. The staff was all friendly and willing to help. There is a small self parking lot but valet parking is free. Golf bags are shuttled down and placed on a cart. I like that there are water and ice machines out on the course and a plastic cup is on the cart. Great service and amenities all around.

This was my first time playing at Indian Wells Resort. I found the Players course layout to be quite enjoyable. Nice mix of Long and short par 3s and 4s. The cart GPS hole layout was very helpful at times. You can't always see the landing surface. The hole layout screen also shows the distance to the carts of the group ahead. There a plenty of tee box choices to suite your game. Look forward to playing the course again. Some course knowledge will definitely help the scoring next time around.

The greens were in very good condition. Rolling smooth with medium/fast speed and held well struck shots. The fairways had great coverage and allowed for some rollout on drives. The rough is getting winter thin so most lies were decent. The bunkers were well groomed and had a decent amount of sand. The tee boxes were reasonably level and had good coverage. A nicely manicured course all around.

Teed off Thursday morning about 7:40 finishing in 4:05. The greens have fully recovered from aeration. Putts rolled smooth with medium/fast speed and held shots. The fairway are a mixed bag. The majority of the fairways have good coverage and good lies. Unfortunately, at this time there are a lot of thin browned out areas. The rough has mostly good coverage with some thin/bare areas. The length is long enough to affect shots put not too penal. The bunkers were nicely groomed with ample sand. The tee boxes were fair to good. Some of the tee boxes had fertilizer spread but they were open for play. The staff was friendly.

Teed off about 7:15 Wednesday morning finishing in 3:50. The greens have recovered from the heat wave of a few weeks ago. They were lush and green. The greens rolled with medium speed, smooth, and held shots. The fairways are a little bit better than a few weeks ago. Mostly good coverage with some thin areas scattered about. The rough has mostly good coverage with some thin/bare spots and was long enough to affect shots but not too penal. The bunkers were in good condition. The tee boxes had decent coverage although they are mildly unlevel like most courses. The staff is always friendly.

Teed off Wednesday about 7:30 finishing in 3:50. Great pace of play today. Typically when I tee off within 1.5 hours of day break I finish in about 4:15. The greens are in good shape rolling mostly smooth with medium+ speed and holding shots. The fairways have mostly good coverage but there are thin/bare areas scattered about. The rough has good coverage around the greens but there are some thin/bare areas along the fairways. The length of the rough was long enough to affect shots but not too penal. The bunkers had decent sand. The tee boxes have decent coverage in most areas but are mildly unlevel.

Lagos has an enjoyable layout. Holes are flat to rolling terrain with water coming into play on a few holes. There are a few doglegs and decent variety of short and long par 4s. The driving range has good mats and for a couple bucks more per bucket there is a grass section. There are 2 putting greens and a chipping green. The staff was friendly.

Walked on Wednesday morning about 6:30 and teed off about 7am. Played in 3:45. The summer heat has taken a toll on the greens and fairways. The greens had brown spots but they rolled smooth with medium+ speed. They played a little firm especially on pitch and chip shots. The fairways are a mix of good green lies and brown thin lies. I would imagine that the fairways should recover nicely as the temperatures cool down. Overall the fairways are playable. The rough was mostly good and green with some thin/bare spots and long enough to affect shots but not too penal. The bunkers were in good condition. The tee boxes have decent coverage but are mildly unlevel. The staff was friendly.

Teed off Thursday just short of 7am and finished in 4:05. The greens rolled smooth with medium/fast speed and held shots. The fairways have mostly good coverage but the summer heat has caused a few more thin spots since I last played here 5 weeks ago. The rough has mostly good coverage and is long enough to affect shots but not too penal. There are some thin/bare spots but its the rough. The bunkers were groomed and had good sand (I was in two greenside bunkers). The tee boxes are fair to good. Always enjoy a round at Eldo. The staff was friendly.

Always enjoy playing Big Rec. Teed off about 7:20 Wednesday finishing in 4:15. The greens were rolling medium speed, mostly smooth, and played a little firm but still held shots decently. The fairways had mostly good coverage with some thin spots. The length of the fairway cut was a little long minimizing roll out on tee shots. The rough had mostly good coverage with some thin/bare spots. With the summer heat and heavy watering some low spots in the rough tend to collect water creating some mucky areas. The bunkers were fair to good and a bit wet and compacted. The bunker short right of the 8th green is full of water. The tee boxes are a mixed bag. Mostly level but coverage is fair to good. The par 3 boxes are pretty worked.

The driving range isn't the largest but there are two sizeable putting greens, a chipping green with bunker, and an area that you can practice pitching the ball. As the previous review pointed out the snack shack on the course wasn't open but you can call food orders in for quick pick up at the turn. The staff was friendly.

Teed off about 7:30 on Thursday finishing in 4.5 hours. The greens were in very good condition. They rolled smooth, medium/fast speed, and held shots. The fairways have mostly good coverage but the thin/bare spots have become more prevalent with the summer heat compared to when I last played here in May. In preparation for the Costa Mesa City Championship this weekend the bare spots were marked as ground under with white outline which made those spots really stand out. The rough has been affected similarly. Mostly good coverage along the fairways with thin/bare spots becoming little more apparent than two months ago. Around the greens the rough coverage is pretty good and just long enough to affect shots. The bunkers (I was in two) were in good condition and well groomed. The tee boxes have good coverage but like most munis are a little unlevel. I always enjoy the layout of Lagos with a nice variety of holes and some rolling terrain. The staff was friendly.

Booked a tee time online through the cities website, lbcgolf.com. No booking fees unlike using golfnow. Teed off about 7:15 finishing in 4:10. The course is in overall good shape especially considering the heat of late. The greens rolled with medium/fast speed, smooth, and held shots. The fairways mostly had very good coverage with some thin spots scattered about. The rough was mostly good with some thin/bare spots. Length was long enough to affect shots but not too penal. The bunkers were groomed with good sand. I wish people would stop being lazy and rake their footprints. The tee boxes have decent coverage although mildly unlevel in spots.

Always enjoy playing Eldo. Not the longest course but a good challenge with some tight driving holes, tall trees lining the fairways, and water coming into play on several holes. Nice practice facilities although the driving range doesn't open on Tuesday mornings until 11am. The staff was friendly.

Always look forward to playing Goose Creek. Teed off shortly after 8am and finished in 4:15. The greens were in overall good condition. Putts rolled medium/fast, mostly smooth, and held shots. A couple of greens had some patch work but had minimal affect on putting. The fairways had mostly very good coverage and lies but there are some thin/bare areas scattered about. Especially on holes 12 and 13. The rough had mostly good coverage with some thin/bare spots. The rough was long enough to affect shots but not too penal. I was not in any bunkers but they appeared in good condition and playing partners had little trouble getting out. Tee boxes were good with decent coverage and mostly level.
Goose is in mostly very good condition but has some rough edges at the moment. However, the course is still very playable with far more great lies than bad. As always Goose management appears to be diligently working on problem spots. The staff was friendly.

Memories of playing here with my grandfather in the early 80s brings me back every year or two. Not the longest of courses at 6212 from the blues but it has its challenges. Greens have a fair amount of undulation. The front nine is fairly open with some mild doglegs. The back nine has some hard doglegs and a water crossing that will likely keep the driver in the bag for some people. There is enough variety and strategy in the design to keep it interesting.

Teed off a little short of 7am finishing in 3:50. The greens rolled mostly smooth with medium speed and held shots. The fairways have mostly good coverage with a mix of grasses but had decent lies. The rough had decent coverage with some thin/bare spots. Along the fairways the rough was thicker in some areas than others but nothing very penal. Around the greens the rough was good. The bunkers were groomed and playable but wet and compacted. The tee boxes are a bit chewed up with spotty coverage on some. Overall the conditions played fair to good. About what I would expect from an LA County Muni. The staff was friendly.

Wallked on Friday morning teeing off at 7am finishing in 4:05. The greens were in great condition rolling smooth with medium+ speed and holding shots. The fairways had very good coverage. Tee balls had some rollout but not a lot. The rough around the greens was good and long enough to affect chips but not too penal. Rough along the fairways was mostly good with some thin/bare spots. The bunkers were in excellent condition. They were groomed with quality sand. There was a foot print or two on occasion. I guess some people are afraid of rakes. The tee boxes had decent coverage although a couple of the par 3 tee boxes were a bit chewed up. Along with the new sand in the bunkers it appears to me that the overall condition of the single course has continued to improve over the last six months. The staff is friendly.
