Out early in what was a very cold morning. While it was only 42 degrees, it sure felt much colder. For the most part, the course has handled the recent rains reasonably well. The fairways were very tight with plenty of roll out, which was nice, but the tight lies do present a challenge. Greens rolled well but were much slower than they appeared. Bunkers were pretty much a disaster. Unmaintained and still very wet.

Biggest complaint was that as we played #14, they sent a shot-gun out in front of us starting on #15. With two groups on each tee, we just left after playing 15, and gave up the last three holes
Out early on a very wet golf course. It has been cart path only almost every day for what seems like months. There have been a few days where it is not CPO, but generally that has become the norm now. The course has handled the rains very well. No casual water whatsoever. Greens still have retained most of their speed. A few bunkers have sustained water damage, but generally the majority of the bunkers are just fine.

Looking forward to things drying out so that the fairways provide some roll out, because right now there isn't much run. Makes the course play long, and Coto does not need to play any tougher.
Nice to get out on time and without any cart path restrictions, much to my surprise. Course conditions have not changed much over the past few weeks. While there is nothing "bad" about the course, I would have expected with all the recent rains and CPO restrictions, things would have improved?

Greens rolled well and decent pace. Fairways for the most part have good coverage, but still have too many bare areas. Bunkers and tee boxes remain good. I have noticed that the volume of play on the South course appeared to have decreased, which would just one more reason I would have expected better conditions. Let's hope with the warmer weather on the way, things will improve
Really did not expect to play this morning given the forecast of rain, but when I checked this morning, appeared the rain was not expected to arrive until about noon. That said, did NOT expect the course to impose carts on path on both courses. I guess they anticipated the rain but decided just to leave the CPO in place. At least they did not call frost!

Greens rolled well and were reasonably quick. Tee boxes are very good right now. Bunkers were not maintained today, which I guess was because they did not expect much/any play? Rough is still "patchy" and very difficult to play from around the greens. Fairways are getting thin in spots.

With all the rain in the forecast, I suspect it will be CPO for at least week, even after the rain subsides, and thats if frost is not called
I know better! In an attempt to avoid yet another frost delay at Coto, which seems like it's almost every day, decided to play San Clemente, knowing there would not be any frost, but what I did not expect was the greens to be so difficult. Had I read Sparky's review, I might have re-thought my decision.

Love playing this course, but it was not normal. Greens were brutal. The course itself is fine, but agree with the prior review, they need to punch the greens and/or not mow them so tight.

Staff is always great here Course is fun, reasonably priced and normally just a fun track to play, but not when the greens are so firm.
First out at 6am in the dark. COP on the first three holes (I was walking so did not impact me) which was the right call, because even now those fairways still showed just how muddy it must have been. The fairways did improve as the round progressed. Tee boxes showing a lot of wear. Bunkers were very inconsistent. Some had sand, some had very little sand, but none were maintained. Greens were the best part of the course, but not really all that great either.

The course was busy even before 6am, and there is a lot of back nine play, so it doesn't pay to zip around the front side, because you're just going to wait & wait on the back. Not my favorite course, but it's inexpensive ($22) and easy to get out, so every few years I return, always making a vow it will be my last, but I suspect in a couple years, I'll do it again!
Probably my favorite of the Long Beach courses. Certainly not the most difficult or challenging, but just a fun course to walk and enjoy. I must admot that I found the course to be in worse condition than I have come to expect from Rec Park. The greens did not roll as smoothly as normal and were slower than usual. Numerous bare spots in the fairways and many of the tee boxes were chewed up. For the amount of $$ they charge to play here, you would think conditions would be better.
Our early on a very cold morning, but unlike Coto, which calls frost almost every day, no frost here, but it was cold. Greens on the front rolled very well and had decent speed, but the greens on the back were completely different, almost like there was a problem with the mower? Much slower and did not roll nearly as true.

Fairways are super thin, which provides some extra roll-out, but because they are so tight, makes for a real challenge. Because the fairways are so hard, tough to hit down and through, so you have to "pick" the ball on a lot of shots. Greenside bunkers had plenty of sand, but they had not yet been raked. Many of the tee boxes had a lot of divots.

As always Ruth in the shop is a joy to deal with. Just a pleasure to begin the day with such a positive person working behind the desk. Not thrilled with the price increase, but that's world we live in now.
Sure, was nice to get back out to Santa Anita. I really enjoy this course, as it affords wonderful ambiance, and the surrounding hills provide such a wonderful setting. One of my favorite LA County courses. While not overly difficult, because of the many rolling fairways and well protected green complexes, it still provides enough of a challenge to keep your interest.

Prior reviews were spot on. Have to admit that the overall condition was better than expected. Greens firmer than I recall them being, which made the approaches much more difficult. Fairways much improved from my last round here.

Staff was accommodating and combined with the great senior rate, made for a most enjoyable day.
Because of all the frost delays and rain, which requires carts on path, I have not played recently on the South course. Yes, there was a frost delay this morning again, but only for one hour, and since it was not very crowded, was able to get out on the South.

The course was in better shape than I expected, in fact, better condition than the North. Greens were not as fast as the North, but still had decent speed. With the exception of of a few bare areas, the fairways were the best I'd seen them in some time. It's amazing how some rain and carts on path can improve conditions. Overall, the course was very nice and a pleasure to play. Just looking forward to some warmer weather so I can get out on this course more often without delays.
It was nice finally get to play without having to endure cart path only restrictions. One hour frost delay, but since it was so empty, did not have to "shot-gun" ahead as is the normal procedure here. Actually, a beautiful morning to play golf, once it warmed up.

The greens were just verticut, so they have regained some of their speed. Much more enjoyable to putt on the quicker greens, which I have grown accustomed too. Fairways still have too many bare spots, but for the most part are decent. They have recently refreshed some of the greenside bunkers with new sand, and it makes a world of difference, both from a visual as well as a playing standpoint.
aving played Marshall Canyon a number of times after heavy rains, I kind of knew what to expect. Prior review was spot on. Course was wet, but still very playable. Greens were not as soft as I've seen in the past. As expected, very receptive. Fairways handled the rains well, but as usual there were muddy areas. Bunkers were pretty much a disaster. But that's to be expected.

Always a treat to play here. Love the view, enjoy seeing all the deer, and it's just a nice walk. Enjoy playing the old-style golf courses that lend themselves to walking, add the great senior rates and this courses continues to be one of my favorites to patronize.
