Have been to the "IKE" course a few times and this was one of the least enjoyable. Course is playing pretty rough right now with very 'winter' like conditions. Fairways are dormant, with mostly brown areas and some holes are extremely bare. Fairways were very inconsistent. One hole it wouldn't be bad, and the next would be just mostly hard dirt. Sand traps were moderate at best. Traps were thin with sand. The best conditions on the course were the greens, but while green conditions were good, the difficulty was insane. Greens are really fast and severely undulated. Many greens have multiple tiers, and often flags were placed on the side slope making 2 putts virtually impossible. It made for a frustrating day as you'd hit good shots, but due to the conditions, you were penalized heavily. I'd wait until spring/summer before hitting this course again and see if the conditions improve. Absolutely love the layout and the course in general. Staff are moderately friendly, but seem disinterested in your enjoyment. The driving range is not close (in parking lot behind hotel) and they don't let you take the carts to the range. Dumb! So much money lost there as people just refuse to walk all that way with their clubs.

This course has been amazing all spring / summer, but recently it's starting to go downhill fast. This course charges a premium, and usually you get a premium experience. The customer service is great and all the amenities you could want are there. Where it's going downhill is the course conditions. Played a 4some on a Wednesday morning and was throughly disappointed with the conditions out there. The course is over watered with muddy spots all over. Some greens had puddles of water on them and the sand traps have decent coverage, but it's thick, wet sand. Fairways were patchy all over...thin spots, different grasses, weeds, and wet. You never knew what lie you were gonna get. Rough was pretty thick and punishing. The greens (normally a bright spot) were awful! Lots of pitch marks (some unfixed), water puddles, and inconsistent speeds. Some were definitely slower than practice green and others were super fast. The tee boxes were really beat up and all the tee colors were hitting from the forward tees, so it made some holes a little more interesting. It hasn't been that hot of a summer so not sure what's going on course maintenance wise, but right now, it's not even close to good condition, and definitely doesn't justify the premium price.

Got a chance to check out this very nice course in the heart of Tustin. The course is in pretty good shape and has a very nice layout. It looks like it has the potential to be amazing, but there are a few areas that really prevent it from being worth the $100-160 they charge which is outrageously overpriced for this course. Max should be $65 during the week, and maybe $95 on a weekend.

Pros:
* Lush layout with lots of trees for shade.
* Firm covered fairways which give nice rollouts.
* Very fast greens and great condition.
* Some short par 4's that require precise course management
* Golf carts are excellent with great GPS
* Sand traps were PGA tour quality sand
* Decent driving range.
* Pace of play was great! 4 hours.

Cons:
* Some greens have 3 tiers and are ridiculously hard. Punishes good shots.
* Greens very fast with difficult pin placements and undulations.
* Fairways, while mostly covered with grass were thin and brown considering price.
* No hole markers signs anywhere. Can get lost.

The biggest con was the outrageous green fee price! This is not a $160 course! I was lucky to have a won a free round and I thoroughly enjoyed the round we played. I would have been disappointed at $160, but if you can get a good deal, it is a mostly beautiful course to play and feels like a Palm Springs resort course in the middle of Orange County. Not bad considering just reopened from Covid and course didn't get it's usual fully staffed maintenance. Just bring those green fees down and I'd visit a lot more often!
