Was able to snag early morning times at SF the last 2 weeks, so figured I should update GK on the conditions. They will allow singles to make tee times, but you must call and cannot book online. Played Tuesday Feb. 7 and Monday Feb. 13th. Both times tee'd off before my scheduled times of 7:20am and 7:00am, respectively. Pace of play was good at 4:13 the first round with no one in front or behind of us. Our 3-some were having our challenges causing the somewhat slow time. Monday round done in 3:40 playing as a 4-some, love that.
Conditions for both rounds were generally good. Tee boxes level and no problem finding a good spot to hit from. They place the tee markers fairly wide here on most holes giving you plenty of space to find a good spot. Fairways appear to be dormant Bermuda, providing lots of rollout and nice lies to hit from. Rough not very thick and won't prevent a poor shot from rolling into the ESA around many holes. Bunkers excellent with lots of fluffy white sand. Greens fairly hard with some ball marks, fairly smooth with consistent medium speed. Generally hold wedges well, longer irons will rollout a bit. Second round greens seemed less marked up.
Front 9 layout is okay, but you can find trouble fairly easily. I rate the back 9 just below spectacular with the reservoir just about full after all the recent rains. All houses are well back from the course and pretty much out of sight.
At $125 for a weekday it is a little pricey (welcome to the OC). Second round got a Senior discount paying $90 and $6 for about 25 range balls. A little better deal, but $6 for below average range balls is a bit annoying.
It is now in my rota of courses and I recommend if you don't mind overpaying a bit.» Close
