Many years ago I found a Red Dot book that showed all the public courses in Southern California - at the time I had just started to break 100 regularly. I set myself a quest to play every public course in LA, Ventura, Riverside and Orange County and to break 100 on all of them. I've basically finished this quest and now try and play private courses in the same areas as well as new courses elsewhere. I'd also like to find a regular group to play with.

Despite the scruffiness, I'm a fan of this course. Yes, the greens have weird wet sections and soft spots on them. Yes, the rough is a bit high in places and the tee boxes a bit chewed up. I would love a round of tree trimming to happen here, there are some tight chutes to hit through.
Despite these problems, the fairways are in great shape and easy to hit off of, the layout is a great mix of holes that reward shot shaping and the ability to hit off of non-flat lies, the lush rough is kinda what you need on course on a hillside and it's the kind of grass that lends itself to more predictable chips. The price can't be beat, and you almost always get to see deer wandering around the course.
I would play here regularly if it was 30 minutes or less away from my house.» Close

First time at NBCC and what can I say. There is definitely a golf course attached to the parking lot you pull into. Course was visually the equivalent of graffiti on a freeway overpass but some appreciation started to creep in. Tee boxes were ok, and the greens were actually pretty good they rolled medium and smooth. The area around the greens had enough love to support less than ideal shots so it didn't play as ugly as it looked. This is the benefit of having a executive course with only 5 par 4's. You only have to maintain 5 fairways and those fairways were decent. The two holes I left the fairway is where the sadness crept in. Rough is a mess of whatever will grow.
It looked like some reconstruction was in progress, so I imagine they haven't given up on this course. Since it mostly plays fine, any love put into it would go a long way.» Close

Made tee-time through some funky on-line system where you prepay. Check-in is at the first tee box but they 'cannot' give you a scorecard - so you have to find a way to get one. I really like the spongy fairways and the rough was what I expect rough to be longer, less playable but you can still find your ball. Greens are a bit slower than one would expect. No tee markers so tee off anywhere you d%mn please - maybe that's why the tee boxes were in such good shape.
fun course - If I lived anywhere near here - I'd play it regularly.» Close

El Cariso is the local seedy bar of golf courses. Most people that don't live near it - don't realize it exists but for the locals - it's a staple. Conditions of the club house with it's 2x4 holding up the bathroom sink, the tired driving range with hard mats and cheap ball trays and the course itself are the golf equivalents of ratty barstools, peeling paint and sticky floors.
As and outsider, I'm only there because it's walking distance from my father in-law who is a Tuesday regular along with all the other Tuesday regulars. It's a cruel par 62 course for the regulars with half of the holes being too challenging for the clientele. Water, barrancas, OB, trees in the fairway and a smattering of long holes make all but a couple of holes an easy place to post a big number - usually my handicap is worse for a go around this track.
I would guess that El Cariso watered and little else during the closure time. Even after a couple of weeks off the rough is US Open length. Every shot must be watched carefully and then finding a shot isn't guaranteed. I found 3 balls in the vicinity of where we expected to find a tee shot 10 feet off the fairway but never found the actual ball. Strokes lost this way can be made up with the above ground cups that improve putting stats. Greens were ok, with medium speed and relatively smooth despite tiny holes punched in them. Where mowed, fairways were in good shape, tee boxes lush and better than usual. No bunkers for me - so no report.
This added difficulty did not go over well with the locals - it was like they decided to have craft beer and cocktail day for the budwiser and whisky crowd.» Close

Post shutdown Diamond Bar is completely "fine". Greens fine - medium speed with extra grab on them. Fairways fine - some thirsty areas on almost every hole. Rough - punishing in general with some scruffy areas that can really make your ball hard to even find. Bunkers - maybe not so fine - unloved. Packed wet sand the with footprints and stuff. Tee boxes - fine.
Was hoping for better but not expecting it. Forgot what a challenge the layout can be and conditions only made it more so.» Close
