850 Tee time with some guys from the club.

Range was open and the ball dispenser at least this time took the cash. Last time the dispensers were not working and its way too far a walk to hit balls and be reminded of
how crappy a player I am 30x.

The course was in good condition and they were watering this place all day and everywhere.

The tee boxes were usual but trimmed, clean and level-ish.

Fairways were good and getting water throughout the day.

Sand Traps, they seemed ok, I was only in one and it had been raked by maintenance so it was fine.

Around the greens were the typical kikuyu that I whine about in most of my posts but the stuff
sucks and it makes it a lot harder hitting a sexual wedge shot when needed. The apron area though, is gold! You can spin, flip, dip, do whatever you want as they are super grabby and very useful for said sexual wedge shots. Around the greens on a couple of holes had those turd tubes sprinkled around like after a punch.

Greens were good, looked like there was some micro punch done but didn't affect the roll
too much. Greens were medium speed and the pins weren't tricky.

POP was good, we were slow because there was about 20 bets going and some of my friends
are dicks about not giving some putts. Its not charity you're looking for, just some compassion.

Lastly, I could have sand blasted my nuts with Gold Bond and that still would not have prepared me enough for the sticky valley death heat that was on tap for todays round.

Bring lots of water when you head out this week.

Hit up Sierra Lakes today.

Got there early and hit balls. Mats today, clean range balls and a beautiful warm morning.

Teed off at 1023, me and my partner paired with a couple of randos.

Course was in good condition but lots of maintenance crew out today.

Cart path only on a couple of holes and lots of seeding, feeding and dirt dropping through out
the course and the day. We saw guys on a lot of holes doing their thing.

Fairways were good but for sure dirt and seed on a few holes.

Rough was fine and a nice change of pace from the Bell design city courses.

Sand Traps, they were hit and miss. A couple were raked or at least sorta raked but a couple
of others had the dried sand castle effect. On 18 fairway bunker it was like a hard pack gravel.
Should have done a full Glamis and made some Brodies in there since they sure as sh-t couldn't rake it.

Greens were nice and rolly all day. they did have some texture but were still pretty smooth. Looked like maybe an old punch from a month ago. The greens were good though.

Super fun course layout and for 59 bucks its a nice change from some of the other places I've been playing but the traps should be better for the cost of this course.

For sure play here but if that sand stays this way bring a beach ball and a pail and have a great time with the foot sand castles.

Had a late day Harding time for 1150am.

Check in is such a hassle at Griffith. I understand the Covid and all, but the check ins are vastly
different between the courses over the city and counties, some you can putt, some you can hit balls others you cant make eye contact. Hopefully, things will go back to normal soon.

Hit the first tee for the usual Harding.

Course was in good shape although there was a lot of water throughout the fairways. Like that
nasty soggy and some were mixed in with old tire marks so that makes it more helpful to play.
Again, its hot and it gets too dry people will complain so I guess they're stuck as well.

Tee boxes are hit and miss. Some are fine and others are so hard you'll look like an 1800's railroad worker trying to put a tee in.

The rough is the rough at GP and around the greens is just so tough, the kikuyu is super
tricky when it gets warm out there. It looks fluffy and fun then Boom! Your club head disappears in the abyss of two chips, duffed shots or bladed glory.

Sand traps, I was only in the 15th's sand. The one on the right sucks. Not a little but a lot. Its sorta like sand and sorta like soft dirt, like they used up the good sand on Wilson and left the balance of gopher dirt in the trap.

Greens. They were fine and medium speed. They rolled well and the breaks were mild, a couple of challenging pins but whatever.

Harding is in good shape just a little water logged in spots. POP was good we finished in 4h15m

Played Koiner this weekend for a special event.

Tee off at 740 am.

Always different for me because the 9's were flipped. Sometimes, you'll even have memories of the old pond that was on the new 9.

POP was whatever as we were playing an event so it didn't really matter. Although we slithered our way through in a little over 4 hours.

Even though that course is treated like garbage by American Golf as they'd rather have people doing donuts in the fairway after a Metallica concert, not having events at the bowl for sure is helping the course quality.

Tee Boxes were good, traps were good and the rough was proper. The greens were
really good and stayed rolly through the day.

Koiner is a demanding course that requires attention but there are some fantastic holes
on the course and while it can be a little spendy at times, the course was for sure in playable
condition for the money.

740am Tee time for Balboa

Bustling morning with both courses pretty busy.

The course was in pretty good condition but, there are a couple of things.

Tee boxes were whatever, normal city conditions,

Fairways and rough were also pretty standard. Hole 3 for sure could use some ground under repair marking, especially by the green, the cart traffic jacked it up pretty well.

The Sandtraps were 50/50. Some of them were raked and others were like sand castles made by retards. Just soggy mounds of old footprints in the bunkers.

The greens, the greens were small punched. Some of them had a pretty excessive plinko
factor yet some how made it towards the hole. The green speeds were rolly but not fast.
Some holes had more left over trim on the greens.

Pace of play was way too slow. Balboa is a short course yet some of these cats teeing it
deep and hitting it short made for a painful morning round. Generally, Ams are quick because
the old guys are trying to beat father death but today I guess they were ready to meet the reaper.

8am tee time with the guys from the shop.

Course condition was pretty good. The fairways were cut and the rough was good.

There weren't really any major issues with the course. Some workers out doing worker
stuff but the course was nice. Fairly busy and when we left at 1230 there must have been
some giveaway because it was packed with people for later tee times.

The back 9 for sure played tougher when the wind was coming in and them blasting TNT
next door was an interesting distraction for sure.

The greens were good but got a little bumpier on the back and some of the sand traps were
soaked with cementy type sand. 9 and 18 traps were totally crappy.

Anyways, for 32 bucks with whatever deal my buddy got it was still a fun place to head out
and hit the links for a week day round.

830am tee today, played with a friend and a couple of randos.

Course was is decent condition.

Fairways and rough were the usual Hansen Dam. It did look good though.

The traps were raked which is nice for those that are more geological in their play.

Greens, greens were small hole punched and sand. The ball rolled well as you can tell the
greens were rolled. The green speed was a little slower but still better than a lot of other courses. The ball did roll true though. Some top water and soggy spots on the greens but
at least they aren't dried to a crisp.

Still a good round with moderate heat and moderate wind.

Hit up Santa Anita for an Am run with the old guy crew.

Nice playing with the old guys, I hit a driver 210 and they think I'm a blaster ( I kid, I kid).

Santa Anita is generally spotty during the hot summer and honestly, the course fairways
seemed better than the last couple of years. Yes, theres parts, but all in all its ok.

Now the real truth.

45 bucks to walk with greens that slow is total BS! I get that they have green issues in the summer, so I understand the grass length and watering, however, courses like American Golf ( who I hate) generally have much faster greens in the summer and in the same area, ( mountain meadows, San Dimas, Knollwood. Generally, all the city courses are faster as well. I play around 2/3 times a week and I play everywhere. I do understand with them loosing greens in the past and people love to full on Glamis their golf carts up to the greens so that doesn't help with the patchyness but 45 to walk is weak with those green speeds.

Sand Traps there are generally ok and the course has some fun and challenging holes with some great views.

Maybe, Next time I'm out I'll leave the driver at home and bring a weed eater to cut the greens a touch more

Hit up Woodley yesterday.

840 Tee time for pending death march into the valley sun.

It was hot out, not as bad in the am but by 1250 when we finished, yes, it was hot.

Fairways were usual Woodley, dry spotty but playable.

Sand Traps were whatever, some were raked some were not.

Tee Boxes were typical muni course nothing to note.

Greens were slow, lots of top water. They are keeping greens wet across most of the muni courses because of the earlier noted death heat.

We played a modest pace and Woodley was its usual predictable Woodley self.

Headed out to play Whispering Lakes this morning. Few guys from the shop wanted to play this place as it is never in any play rotation. I haven't played here since the 90's so the clubhouse being gone and the flipped 9's was new.

Man, this place. Yes its inexpensive, however, hmmmm.

The course was patchy in spots but they are watering it like crazy. Lots of maintenance guys doing their thing. Some of the tee boxes were pretty raunchy, like I was a little surprised. Like, they just dropped the tee markers anywhere. On hole 12 I was like d%mn ! this is considered the rough in most spots and it was a tee box.

The traps were all wet, all 3 I was in and all my friends were in. Just like that am cement style from the sprinklers. They do water this course.

The greens were slow but a lot better than some of the other 35/40 dollar places you'll play locally. Santa Anita being one. The greens are small and flat so its a peaceful putting round without getting into too much trouble. They were seeding some of the greens on the back when we were out there as well.

Pace of play was ok, it was a little busy out. Great value for 24 bucks to walk.

Late day round at Marshall Canyon

What can I say that hasn't been said?

Fairways and tee boxes aren't the best. The greens, all things considered, for a late day round
they were still quick and for sure tricky. Like annoying tricky. I know Marshall Canyon isn't always the best but its still nice to get out and play. Lastly, lots of deer out, if you're a deer hunter you might want to check this place out.

Hit up Encino for a 6am tee time. Just old guys and death out there that early morning.

I totally get maintenance and all but today was ridiculous. We play the first couple of holes and then on hole 4, worker guys are standing on the green going over things as were waiting to play into the green. Like they knew we were waiting and they were like, no, I'll be a cigar store Indian and just hold up the pace of play and chat about bent grass and weed. So we wait. then we wait. Then we play.

FFW to a couple of holes later and the tractor guy is on us in the fairway. Like right behind us. It reminded me of the movie Cars when the tractor Frank was after them. I look back like, Dude! Let me hit this shot so you can keep mowing. He waits, half idles the mower and now I gotta hit a good shot because he's waiting. I hit a nice second tip my cap and move on.

Literally, the next hole, another guy is doing the tee boxes. I'm like, d%mn !, Augusta is closed and the Masters is coming here! I wonder if Tiger will sign my chest?

I totally get we were out early and theres 2 courses, blah blah blah. I'm not a retard, however, the constant work was kind of a bummer.

Fairways were usual muni and the rough was whatever. The sand was also soft but its like cheap playground sand and not the nice cocaine sand but it was still sand so not complaining.

Tee boxes were decent and the greens were very nice. The greens rolled well, not too hoppy at all and looked lush. Pin placements were fair and friendly all day.
