I have long been a fan of Tijeras Creek and I have always enjoyed the challenge. It is (for me, anyway) the tale of two courses, the front and then the back nine!
It seems they have recently raised their prices where the “senior” rate is now $99 whereas I recall as recently as a year or two ago paying in the vicinity of $65. If that’s worth it to someone, that’s an individual decision but I wanted to play it while in the area so I shelled out the pre paid $99 (non refundable) per golfer at the time of reservation. To be fair, they will give course credit if for some reason notice is given. In this case, I don’t think it was worth it.
Much of the course was swamp like and muddy. To this “duffer” it was so wet there was little to no roll on the fairways, my ball was muddy as were my shoes and it made for a difficult day! On several greens there was standing water! The traps were inconsistent where some were soaked and others playable.
For $99, I expect a little more. The standard rate for the tee time we played as $133. Pretty disappointed!» Close

Arroyo is one of my go to courses in Orange County. The personnel could not be friendlier and more welcoming. The course was in good shape (with the exception of the below comments).
It was terribly obvious someone was wearing metal spikes, and that person apparently shuffled their feet when they walked! I saw one guy playing barefoot in a very slow and somewhat unfamiliar with the etiquette and rules of golf foursome (driving up right next to greens, very slow, continually searching in vain for lost golf balls…way more than three minutes worth!). I figured he was the culprit trashing the greens but sadly, the greens continued to be torn up! And really, not just a little bit. We mentioned it to the Marshall who had already been notified but he couldn’t locate the person responsible. To Arroyo’s credit, they did put out a message to all golfers via the cart computer screen regarding “feet shuffling” on the green but it made no difference. That, and there were a lot of ball marks left untouched! I’d love to blame my lack of low number of putts on that, however, I will claim operator error!
Despite the above, a great day on the course and Arroyo never seems to disappoint!» Close
