Played last Saturday and overall the course seems to be preparing for the Cal Am tourney at the end of the month. So I expect that the course will probably be a little firmer as we get closer to this tourney.

Greens are good. They rolled pretty well and there may be a couple of ball marks but certainly not as much as the North (maybe because no one can hit these greens in regulation?).

The 2 fairways I found were nice to hit from and also nice to walk on. Wish I could hit from here more often. You'll find a few more divot in collection areas like the bottom of the hill on 13, etc. Still adequate roll out on drives. The last time I reviewed I mentioned that there were areas from the redesign that didn't seem to grow in completely and that still seems to be the case. Not sure why these areas are taking so long to grow in and be consistent with the other parts of the fairway.

While the rough is not Farmer's rough there are some spots that are which a couple of playing partners found. I think the rough immediately off the fairway is not that bad but I expect this to be growing over the next couple of weeks. Nothing like punishing 15 year old boys with knee high rough.

I have the same issues with the sand here as the North. They just seem to be putting too much on the face of the bunkers. I don't mind it in the bottom but the amount of plugged lies I have seen over the past year here is probably as much as I've seen in all my other golfing years combined.

Tee boxes are good. They didn't seem as beat up as the North.

Customer service is great as always. We were 3rd out so no problem with the pace. Overall quite enjoyable and should be getting better. I can't wait until I see some of the scores from the tournament so I can have a nice slice of humble pie.

Played here several times since the reopening and this is quite possibly the easiest I have ever seen the course play.

Greens are meh/ok at best. There are just too many unrepaired or poorly repaired ball marks on the greens. There are some areas that need attention whether that is some bare spots or the different grass trying to grow in. They are rolling decently probably at a medium pace however.

Fairways are ok too. Generally there are good lies but there are quite a few unfilled divots out there. The are cut to a good height to get a nice lie but again like the greens there are just some areas that need a little more attention.

Rough is non-existent. Everywhere is a green light in my opinion. I haven't hit a driver out of the rough yet but I have hit every other club. Yes that includes a putter.

Sand is troubling. I can't count how many plugged lies I have had and seen with other players. It seems they are putting too much sand on the face of bunkers. The penalty is the bunker itself not the fact that I have to take an unplayable lie and then still hit a bunker shot. But if your ball doesn't fly in and rolls in you can get a good enough lie to get that splash effect out the bunker.

Tees boxes are what you'd expect. Par 3s are beat up and there are good spots on the others. They probably need to resod #8 because that one is rough.

Customer service is outstanding as usual and the pace has been great but I have been getting off early so it was anywhere between 3 - 4 hours at most. Since they now are allowing 2 per cart it does seem like the later times are taking a little longer.

If you're a non-resident I don't think this will be worth your time but if you're local and want to possibly shoot one of your lowest scores well come on out.

Played yesterday and tees off about 8:20 and we finished right about 4 1/2 hours. We were not a 2some so it felt slow than what it actually was. Everything is good right now. Greens were rolling deceptively fast but the rain from Monday did help soften them up a bit. There are some areas to n a few greens (collars I believe) that were considered GUR. I had a hard time judging how much chips would roll out. Some seemed to check and others rolled more than I thought but I think that was this golfers own problem.

Fairways are pretty good and nice to hit from. There are some bare areas and divots but overall generally good to hit from. I didn’t think the rough was very penalizing. I really don’t think it changed my shot selection.

I wasn’t in a bunker but they looked pretty good. Played the back tee boxes so they were very good since they were not used as much. I also don’t remember them changing the tee boxes to Roman numerals. The forward tees to back were I to IV, kinda different and unique.

Awesome practice facility and staff. I really need to get there earlier and take advantage of that. Nice big putting green and another separate chipping green. Grass range which is always good turf to hit of off. Can’t wait until I can get back up here.

On a side note I’m not sure how long I have been coming up here (10 yrs???) but I know from the first time until yesterday they have been doing construction on the 15. Are they ever going to get this thing finished in my lifetime?

Played a couple of times over the long weekend and generally agree with the last couple of review. I was actually expecting the greens to be slower. Since the putting green was not open I ran my first couple of putts well by. I'm not sure if my expectation was off but we did see the crew cutting and rolling them so its probably a combination of thing. Also the greens don't generally "look" good and that may have contributed as well.

Fairways were generally good and nice to hit from. There are some unfilled and filled divots, just a crap shoot as usual. There are some rough spots. For example on the first hole you can still see the area where they put the new irrigation system in as the new grass doesn't seem to want to grow from this new sod.

Rough is not penalizing at all. I had a couple of lies in the rough that I let my 3 wood rip. Now it could nestle down a little in which I probably would have chosen differently. Bottom line is this ain't the Farmers rough.

Sand is good. Obviously with all the restrictions now some bunkers hadn't been maintained in a couple of days but you could see the crew out raking bunkers. There is just no way they can attend to all the bunkers in the morning prior to play. Some bunkers are still pretty soft and there were a couple of plugged lies.

Overall the course is getable right now and the conditions seem to be trending in the right direction. Let's hope the trend continues. I however do not believe this worth the non-resident rate at this time. I understand for a resident people are put off by the high price but with the North still healing it might be worth a look until then.

Went out yesterday with a tee time of 7:30ish and went out much earlier than that. Finished in 3 hours flat. I was sandwich between 2 foursomes and I stayed just back enough of the group ahead so they didn't feel rushed and far enough ahead of the group behind me that I didn't hold them up.

Really the Pisarski brothers and Blake summarized the conditions very well. Overall conditions are excellent and really is a must play. Everything is just in fabulous conditions right now. The only ball marks on the greens were mine (which I fixed). It's really nice knowing that your ball will hold the line. The greens did have some tricky breaks which I misread but what else is new there.

Customer service is top notch here. Bob in the pro shop was super helpful and helped me with my refund for the guys that didn't show up in my group. They do have a marshal out delivering water and ice which was needed as the temp was starting to creep up there. Range was open as was the chipping and putting greens. The food is carryout only and they do take your temp before you enter the pro shop.

I paid $130 for the round with a cart and I think that is a solid price. I'm actually looking to try and get back before the course closes for the summer on 6/7. The only question is why haven't you played here.

First there is a guy in the front of the parking lot allowing only people with tee times access to the parking lot which you are supposed to be there 30 mins prior to your time. Masks are required for the parking lot and check in. Once you play you can remove the mask. Check in is no longer in the pro shop but back at the starter booth and you must enter on the south side (north side hallway is roped off). Putting greens were closed. Range was closed when we got there but as we came down on 9 we saw a couple of people hitting so I'm not sure if the hours are modified or not.

Conditions are pretty darn good. Fairways are nice and lush, not many divots to speak of. I guess that what happens when golfers don't tear up the course and we get a little rain. I'm a nitpicker but they probably could be mowed. It's a little long for me but really not that bad considering.

Greens were great. They were cutting them that morning and rolled very well. They putting about medium speed. Obviously ball marks were not an issue but the greens were different colors and I'm assuming that is the different grasses taking over? The cups are upside down but in the ground. They have these spokes that stick up so that the ball doesn't fall all the way to the bottom. Sorry but I found it difficult to explain exactly how this is.

Rough has some bit to it, not like the Farmers but certainly enough to warrant some attention. They were cutting some of the rough so maybe this will be more manageable in the upcoming weeks.

Sand was good, obviously no rakes but i can't imagine playing in the afternoon after a whole day of play has gone through.

I believe you can only play if you have a tee time. No walk ons is my understanding. It's pretty good right now so hopefully no people from OC can ruin golf for us (sorry I couldn't help but take a dig). Pace was 3 1/2 hours. Will be back for the weekend.

Was 2nd off yesterday and we finished a hair less than 4 hours. I looked as we finished 17 and the group behind us was finishing on 15 so they finished about 2 holes behind. With as much rain as we had during the week I thought it would be soggy out there. Other than a few areas it wasn't as bad as I expected. The new irrigation that was installed seems to be doing the trick.

I thought the greens were pretty smooth but a tad slow. Maybe with the rain during the week and expected for the weekend and next week they weren't able to mow them as much. They actually didn't look like they needed mowing but we kept coming up short on many putts.

Fairways were pretty good. You can tell some of the crew had put down some mix in the divots in popular collection areas (e.g. bottom of the hill on 13). Still a few unrepaired divots but generally good to hit from.

Rough is down and I even dared to hit a 3 wood out of there. There are some thicker areas however. The morning dew did make hitting some shorter shots around the green a challenge but got better as the day went along.

Sand is still very soft. One guy in our group had 2 very very buried lies. I got lucky since one popped out of its mark. Whew.

Overall decent conditions for the time being with maintenance less than a month a way.

Was in the 2nd group out yesterday in a day where die hards dared to go out. We surprising had really good weather for the first 9 and you could just see the storm rolling in. Hole 14 the winds hit. I hit my drive left and blew completely across the fairway to the right rough. I added 40 yds to my approach shot but did get on and 2 putt for par. Then the hurricane hit. It was dumping out there. Good thing for the bathroom after 14 because we waited there until the storm died down (about 15 minutes). Group in front of us headed back. The 2some in the cart behind us went ahead and played on. Still finished in less than 3 1/2 hours.

Greens are rolling very well, still firm but at a very nice pace. Too many poorly fixed ball marks on some holes. I think people don’t realize how much the balls roll out so they don’t realize where their mark is but just fix something man.

Fairways are very nice with some nice rolls.

Rough is down and playable but that kikuyu can grab a club even in good lies. One day I’ll learn.

Traps were a little damp because there was some over night rain. I actually had a plugged lie which seems to be occurring a lot more between both courses. My friend had a plugged life on a different hole and we found 3 bunkers all day. It wasn’t bad to get out but you just can’t control it well at all.

Conditions should but good up until they punch in April (I’m guessing on that).

Teed off at 9:20 in the men’s club outing today. Overall conditions are still pretty solid, maybe a tick less than my last review but still nice. As expected the pace was a little slow but not as bad as I expected. Forgot to look at the time but it was less than 5 hours but probably not that much less.

Greens still rolling pretty well, maybe not as quick as previously but still at a nice pace. A few unrepaired ball marks and a few that were repaired improperly.

Fairways are great to hit from. The divots out there are starting to mount up so it would be nice if golfers would replace it or fill it with the bottle mixture.

Rough is still down but make no mistake there are places that are not great to hit from. I let my ego get the better of me on one hole. I thought I could get a hybrid on it and we’ll I’ll leave it at that.

Bunkers still soft. One guy in our group had a lie on the 3rd hole that looks like someone threw it in there. You could barely see the ball it was so buried.

Teed off right before 7 today and finished right at 4 hours. 3rd group out today and the group behind us I don’t think was on 18 by the time we finished. Very long line at check in so it was a little crazy. I’m not sure I like the starter inside the pro shop now. Everyone seems to be bunched up now.

Course is fabulous right now. These greens are rolling wonderfully and fast. Don’t be above the hole it is tricky. I had a 3 footer and ended up with an 8 foot combacker. At least I didn’t think I hit it that hard. As Happy would say just “tap it in”.

Fairways are great too. Firm rolling out some shots. . Sadly I only found one fairway some most of my observation is based on watching others hit from there and walking on it.

Rough has been cut since the tournament but man balls can still get in there making for some tricky recovery shots.

Sand is still soft had some buried lies in there. Actually not bad to hit from if you got a good lie.

Tee boxes were all great. No complaints here.

Now is a great time to get out there. If you’ve been on the fence about playing I don’t think you’ll regret it.

Teed off today a little after 7 on an unusual cool foggy day. Never did take my pull overs off as I thought the sun would eventually come out but alas never did.

Greens were really slow

Jumped on a 7:25 tee time yesterday when I saw it and I’ve been itching to get back up here. Check in was smooth and got a little bucket to warm up. Great practice area. Giant driving range, a separate chipping green and 2 putting greens.

Teed off right on time and finished a tick over 4 hours. Marshal said the group in front of us was slow which either they made up ground because they were waiting for the group in front of them. I think it was just a full sheet today.

First off these greens were deceptively fast. They certainly did not look like they rolled as fast as they did. It took a few holes to get the speed of the greens down. I think they were rolling just as fast as when they have some of their qualifiers (or poor putting on my part).

Fairways were very good. Nice coverage. If you want to nit pick there are are areas that inconsistent bare/infilled divot but I don’t think anyone in our group had a bad lie all day.

Generally the rough is down but there were some juicy areas. Generally it didn’t impact any club decision for me.

I was in 2 fairway bunkers and they were both pretty thin and firm but I liked that from a fairway bunker. I don’t recall anyone of us in a green side one.

Started off a little chilly but turned out to be a beautiful day. Odd day too because the wind was weird today. 16 and 18 were a cross wind and 17 played downwind. I can’t ever not remember playing into the wind on these holes. Must have been the wind because I birdied 18, still looking for my first par....

On a side note the 15N was shut down thru parts of Corona so I had to take a scenic route which added some time to the commute. Check the construction in the area to see if there are any closures. I swear they have been working on this part of the 15 for 10 years now. From the looks of it I bet it takes another 10 years to complete. Ive said numerous times the goose is always a great test and i lived any closer it be my go to course. Just a solid track, solid conditions, and solid staff.
