I've been playing golf since I was about 12, but am still not as good as I should be considering how much I play. Anything mid-80s and below I feel satisfied, but will break 80 from time to time. I love playing courses I haven't played before and recently surpassed 1,000-course mark. I'd much rather play a new course every time than play the same course(s) over and over again.
I am also an avid "road trip" golfer. I've driven up and down the west coast and played many courses in California, Oregon, Nevada and Arizona. I have a personal goal of someday playing golf in all 50 states and I am currently up to 43 (AL, AK, AZ, AR, CA, CO, CT, DE, DC, FL, GA, ID, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, ME, MD, MA, MI, MS, MO, MT, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NY, NV, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, UT, VT, VA, WA, WV and WY). I have also played every public golf course in Southern California.

It took the long-awaited resurrection of Moreno Valley Ranch to get me out of my semi-retirement from golf and put clubs in my hands for the first time in 2020! This has always been a personal favorite of mine. I was sad when it closed and excited (and disappointed) with every tease of a renovation and reopening over the past 5+ years. Thanks to Johnny for setting this up and convincing me to come out yesterday afternoon.
The course was in good overall condition and definitely much better than I expected after the opening that kept getting pushed back this year. It was so nice to see this place looking green again because it was in very rough shape by the time it had closed down. The tee boxes were great. The fairways were lush. The rough was mostly good, getting a little thinner or "weedier" as you strayed from the fairways and into the wash of the front nine or the native areas of the back nine. The traps had good soft sand, but that also meant tons of huge footprints with no rakes. The greens were soft and rolling well at medium speeds, getting a little slower and bumpier in the evening as we finished up.
We had a good pace of play on the front without ever having to wait, but then it backed up on the back nine and we waited on most tee shots. We were too busy taking pictures on the back nine (formerly the Mountain nine) to worry about waiting too much. I always thought the Lake nine was underrated of the original three, but if they were only keeping two I'm glad it was Valley and Mountain. I firmly agree the spectacular Mountain side should be the back nine, even if it is a little odd ending on the new par-3 18th they built from the shortened original hole. Sounds like what's left of the Lake will ultimately be made into a nice hiking trail and also a foot golf (boo) and disc golf (yay) course.
It was nice to see Johnny, Mark, Ron and Nick again, as well as my other old friend now known as Rancho Del Sol. This is a fantastic course (and a difficult Dye design) with views for days and it's so good to see it back open again. Everyone should make it a point to get out here and support this place!
