Played Sunday 2/21 in a tournament starting about 9:30 am. It was pretty crowded with another tournament going off the North course about the same time. I had to wait to hit some balls on the range. Nice to be at a course with open putting greens but the one I hit some on was faster than the course which caused some difficulty on the first hole. Food and beverage service through the back door still. Cheerful and efficient service though.
I think Chevelle's last review is spot on. The greens were very firm and it was difficult to spot divots. They also rolled really well at a fast speed. Late there were some tough pin positions to be above such as 17 which was in the back right. An 8 handicap in our group four-putted two greens. Fun to watch until it was your turn.
The rest of the course was in pretty good winter shape as Chevelle noted. The sand traps were an exception in that they had not been raked for a while (and no rakes available per Covid mandates). Good sand but with a crust and there were many historical footprints. We were playing lift and place in the bunkers if needed. It was.
Always a pleasure to be out here. I love the layout and appreciate the work the owners do to keep it in good condition. I'll be back.» Close

Played Sunday, 1/31, at 7:00 am. Crisp morning that evolved into a decent, sunlit day. Still checking in people through the back window in the pro shop but the restaurant is open early which was appreciated.
I have not played here in a while and I was pleased with the conditions. Even though we had rain recently, the fairways were mowed with little residual moisture. The fairways were tight winter lies though. The rough was cut down and not much of a factor. The sand was in good shape. The greens were much improved from my last time here. Slower in the morning quickening as the round progressed. I had a four foot downhill putt on the par 3 16th that I barely tapped and it slid 3 feet past the hole.
Pace of play was also nice. Two hours at the turn, four hours total. We had to wait most holes being a 3 following a 4, but nothing too bad. Overall a nice morning.» Close

Played Sunday, 1/17 before 7:00. Warm Santa Ana morning with a breeze blowing west. The smog was piling up on Catalina but we could see at least one of the islands to the northwest. POP was outstanding at 3.5 hours.
The course conditions were a little ragged. The fairways looked like they had not been mowed with clumps of grass sticking up from the generally dry turf. The rough was rough. A lot of dirt out there. The bunkers were in good shape. They had someone raking them on the front. Unfortunately I was undermining much of that work as I played out of the sand quite a bit.
The greens have been outstanding lately but they were merely good. Still firm and fast, there were some bumps out there. Not so one had to worry on short putts; they were just not perfect.
Overall, a nice summer day in January. Tough to complain too much about the conditions. Not perfect but still the best deal in golf.» Close

Played New Year’s Day at 6:50 am. Blustery front nine evolved into a gorgeous back nine. Four islands in view from the 16th tee. Service was good although still nothing open early. Standard Covid restrictions. Pace of play was good at about 3:55.
The course is playing January firm and fast. Lusher in the fairway than in prior years, but I had a fade working that was rolling into trouble on occasion. Pretty darn dry overall. Not much rough so nothing to stop the ball. If you were in the the fairway though, it was a good hitting surface.
The greens are really good. Rolling true and fast. They were fun. When the wind was blowing on the front, it was a factor. One guy’s putt on #4 was about 6’ short. The wind caught it and it rolled at least 15’ back. It was like watching a car wreck, you wanted to turn away but couldn’t.
The course is not pristine but it is playable and fun. I got an incredible photo on the 12th green. Get out there if you can get a time.» Close

First group out at 6:40 am on Saturday morning 12/19. The lady checking people in is always professional and courteous. With the limited c-19 era amenities, that was the limit of our interactions with the course personnel. Pace of play was obviously not an issue. Four walkers, we played the front in 1.5 hours but hit back nine crowds on 15. It was standard slow from there but still managed to finish in 3.5 hours.
Not much change to the course conditions except the tee boxes seemed even more lacking in grass. That early, we were mainly standing in mud when teeing off. The fairways were probably a little more lush. We had decent roll out so they were fairly firm. Not much rough as it is cut down or winter sparse. The greens are still excellent. No complaints there.
I like the layout. It has a good mix of holes. Recommended .» Close
