played here during a visit to the monterey peninsula. course was in great shape, but some of the covid precautions were...questionable. the golf shop is not open, so everyone is checking in in the back of the clubhouse. the same people checking you in are helping people 'shop' and bringing stuff like clothes out from the inside so people can see and decide whether to buy. so i stood in line for about 20 minutes waiting to check in when there were only 3 people in line. next, neither a golf cart nor range balls are included with their $250 rack rate. (not that i paid that, but still). seems to be nickel and diming people a bit. i was walking anyway.

also, a foursome checked in in front of me, and they all wanted to ride, but the course would only allow 2 people to ride in 2 carts, and the other 2 had to walk. they were some older golfers who just wanted to ride and willing to pay. and there were a LOT of carts sitting around. i don't get that.

anyway once i got to the first tee things were fine. great conditions all around, with almost perfectly maintained tee boxes and fairways, tricky but somewhat slow-ish greens. i don't recall being in any greenside bunkers but they looked fine. a lot of sidehill fairway lies if you don't know where to hit it. a very nice walk with a push cart through the del monte forest and sightseeing through the monterey pines. pretty decent pace of play at 4 hours with a noon tee time. enjoyed it.
Played just after noon on a windy but sunny day. The wind made it challenging, it was still a ton of fun. Journey is in great shape compared to other courses I've played recently which are mostly still in winter condition. Check in is friendly and starter was proactive about getting everyone out on time.

Course is green and lush, a beautiful sight when you pull up in the cart. Very nice range and excellent little short game area to warm up. Tees are well covered and level, evenly mowed, never once had any issues finding a place to tee up. Fairways are lush for the most part with a nice soft carpety layer of grass beneath your ball. Most divots were filled with green sand. Just a few fairways like hole 6 were a bit on the dry side. A little bit of rough but mostly playable, a couple areas are grown out maybe to an inch and a half. Bunkers were filled with a nice soft layer of white sand. Fringe areas around the green are kept immaculately. Greens were in great condition and quick, which made putting a challenge given the amount of tiers and undulations in the greens. I four putted hole 7 as I put myself on the wrong side of the green.

They are changing hole 13 from a par 5 to a par 4 which I'm kind of disappointed about, as I liked that tee shot and the hole plays too short now. Hole 16, a hole which I don't like as it gets me every time, is now a par 5 instead of a 4 after they moved the tees back a bit. Again, the hole plays too short as I put a drive in the drink but the hole was short enough for me to salvage par. Otherwise I love the layout, most holes make you think about your tee shots and the views are gorgeous. Overall it's a beautiful, but challenging course that's kept in top notch condition. Definitely recommended.
played here mid morning sunday with a friend of mine. course not that busy so kind started was able to get us out a bit early. course is in winter-ish condition, with fairways on the thin side and plenty of roll. rough was a bit patchy but not much to contend with. teeboxes were in good condition. fringe areas were patchy with different types of grass, sort of felt this was the worst part. a couple of greenside areas had areas of sod where it doesn't seem the grass took and what's left is just rectangles of grass death and dirt. bunkers had a nice thick layer of sand in most, except for 16 which the greenside was kind of packed down. greens were running medium quick and smoothly, not too many ball marks out there. try to be on the right tier, or 3 putts will be aplenty. POP was less than 4 hours for a weekend morning which i consider pretty good. conditions were fine, but nothing to write home about.
Played here early afternoon after work, got a good deal off a discount site. Course is short but tricky, as the landing areas are generally tight and the fairways are thin and dormant causing a lot of roll especially on downhill holes. I hit two 3 woods over 300 yards which has never happened before.(I managed to bogey both holes smh) no need for driver on most.

Check in was fine but the starter was a grumpy old codger. Starter/range shack is usually not the friendliest in my experience. Tees had lots of bare spots and a few were domed. Not in good shape. Fairways were super thin as mentioned, better be good at hitting your irons ball first. No real rough to speak of, so need to be on line or you'll roll off into the ESA. Greenside bunkers had a fair smount of sand that was easy to play from. Many fringes and collars are dyed/spray painted. Greens were quick and had a lot of slope, don't be above the hole. A lot of ball marks though. Was waiting on an approach and the marshall and I had a long convo where he ranted about how people never fix divots and ball marks. 15 green still sucks, not sure if it will ever improve. Pop was slow, about 4 1/2. Worth what I paid, any more I'd wait for the course to 'lush up' a bit.
Played early Sunday morning with a group of old friends. Small bucket at grass range included, check-in was easy and friendly. Course is in good condition right now with the greens running very quick. Tee boxes were level and had good coverage, fairways were not lush but you would always have a good lie. Not too much rough to speak of. I was in one bunker, seemed to have decent coverage. As previously mentioned greens are quick with a lot of slope. Had only a few up and downs as a result. Pop was just a bit over 4, people were probably preparing for their superbowl parties. Recommended.
hadn't been out here in a number of years, for some reason i thought they sold the course and it went out of business but i guess it hadn't. course is hidden behind a shopping center on the side of a hill so it's one of those back and forth narrow-ish fairways kind of thing for the front 9. opens up a bit on the back but not much. westridge is in sort of muni type condition, yes there's mostly grass everywhere, but it's patchy and there's bare areas and unrepaired divots. tee boxes were serviceable, as were fairways. there wasn't really any distinction between fairway and rough, maybe 1/2" at max. got up and down out of 2 greenside bunkers so i guess they were okay, but maybe a bit thin on the sand. greens were in good condition, ran smooth, a lot of break on most putts. POP was 4 1/2, too long for me, waiting most shots. overall it was fine, i hope they don't sell it, nice to have another option.
played yesterday morning with a group of friends. i like the layout and the location as it's convenient to me, and only play it every few months due to the price. usually the course is in decent condition, but yesterday it was a bit of a let down. The course is dry, mostly yellow, and much of the grass is dormant. There is fair coverage, you will get grass in the fairway and rough, but it's a very thin layer, often dry grass with wettish dirt underneath. drives will run a decent distance. only semi-lush areas were some green areas in the fringe around the greens. better make sure you hit the ball before the ground. tee boxes were okay, i don't remember having any specific concerns about them. maybe a bit shaggy. greens were mowed tight and were quick but they had some light sand on them so putts would occasionally get bumped off line. i was only in one greenside bunker and it had some heavy-ish sand which was fine. overall, it was still a fine day, but for the price i wish it was in a bit better condition and more visually appealing.
played mid morning here today, second time i've played journey. i really like the layout of this course, there's plenty of elevated tee shots with gorgeous views everywhere. scenic creeks run through holes and there is plenty of water. definitely target golf, so if your game is not on, expect to lose a few balls. customer service is generally good here which is expected, from the bag drop to the starter. range balls and a chipping area is included with your round. as mentioned in the previous review, tee boxes are a bit shaggy but you could always find a place to play from. fairways are lush and in good shape, not dry don't expect too much roll. rough is that thick, nice stuff, enough to grab your club or make you duff your chip. bunkers were thick full of nice, white sand, unfortunately i was in 3 or 4 of them. greens were running quick, a lot of crazy undulation on these, 10 and 18 come to mind. leave yourself underneath the hole. expect a workout and a challenge, this isn't your typical resort course, but i always enjoy when i can get out here.
play this course about once a year because it's close by and i'm either lazy or cheap. every time i regret it hehe. check-in was friendly and was able to get on earlier than scheduled in later morning when i usually play. teeboxes from black in generally awful condition, with plenty of unrepaired divots, uneven lies, multiple types of grass. fairways were similar, with some completely bare spots of dirt, multiple grasses out there so you had no idea what kind of lie you were going to get. rough ranged from fluffy to thick to downright swamp as there were areas with unmown grass up to 5 inches in standing water. greens were sanded and ran inconsistently, there were some remnants of what may have been some punching but minimal holes, it was just mostly slow, bumpy, and sandy. bunkers sometimes had fluffy sand and sometimes wet hard packed sand depending on whether they got water. why did i have to drive the cart through multiple rivers of standing water? POP was slow at 4h45min. no drink cart, pick something up at the turn while you're waiting on the two groups that area already on 10 teebox. yeah, don't really recommend playing here.
played here late morning a few days ago. it was a cool day so it was actually pleasant out in the inland empire. looks like the heat is back now. this is always one of my favorite course layouts, runs through the quarry beautifully and holes usually make you think a bit. customer service was mentioned in the previous reviews but there wasn't any when i got there, maybe it was a bit later. no one to drop a bag off to, had to flag down the cart guys to get a cart, and no one to check on us when we got back. no starter so i just headed out there with my buddy. the course itself was in better condition than i usually see it, pretty green, but still a big scruffy. the tees from the blues were okay, even the par 3's were okay since they mostly play from 195+ and most people don't take huge divots from that distance. fairways were actually pretty green but did have some brown and bare spots out there. rough was up just a bit and enough to affect our approaches for sure. bunkers out here were pretty bad as usual, pretty much playing out of dirt. i think the wind just makes it hard to keep sand here? worst part was the greens were very slow and bumpy. looks like they had just been verticut so either your putt was with the cut and had no break or it was against the cut and you had to slam the putt to get it there. often times putts would get knocked off line by bumps on the greens. frustrating. anyway it was still a fun day, POP was about 4 hours. for some reason i always score great on the front and get killed by the back. that's golf i guess.
was able to get out here yesterday mid morning. situated in the heart of OC, prices are premium but i feel like it's taken a step back. check in at the shop was fine but guy at the front just tells you to 'take that cart and head off'. carts have no ice chests nor water supplied. there is no GPS, better figure out how to play holes 8, 14, 18 without a map. tee boxes were very chewed up with lots of unfilled divots and grown out ragged and unlevel. fairways were in decent condition with good coverage, some occasional brown/bare spots. there wasn't too much rough to contend with . bunkers were all right, playable. greens were in good condition and ran medium/fast. POP was 4 hours.
layout is mostly creative with a few interesting holes and some forgettable par 4s. they have a discounted rate for irvine residents. if i had a to play a premium course in irvine though, i'd probably head on over to oak creek, it's just a step above right now.
played here last week mid morning as a twosome, a bit of a late review. i like the layout of this course, not too difficult if you have played it a few times and know where to hit it. course was in dry late summer conditions as expected due to the heat. teeboxes were all in good condition from the blues. fairways had generally decent thinnish coverage, but there were some brown and occasional bare areas. there isn't too much rough here to speak of. i was not in any bunkers. greens are the best part of the course, played soft, medium speed, and rolled pretty true with minimal bumps. approaches were generally hop and stop. wasn't very crowded out there, we played through a couple off groups after getting backed up behind a foursome front 9 and made it around in about 3 1/2. enjoy playing here when i can.
