I was lucky enough to play here last Saturday. Easily one of my new favorite courses. There are so many beautiful water features I couldn't help myself to take pictures like tourist on a tour of the homes in Hollywood.
The golf carts were cutting edge with touch screen if you wanted a particular distance. Wonderful luxury leather seats. The cart would yell at you for playing behind pace and shut down if you drove into a 'no-no' area. The only thing it was missing was a electrocution feature if your BAC got too high, which would of been handy.
The not much of a practice facility, hitting into nets like Monarch Beach Golf Links. Golf balls were worn and black. It didn't matter too much for me, I toed a few balls and headed to our first tee box. Just a heads up if you are the type of golfer that needs a bucket before playing.
The course was in great shape, greens rolled fast, smooth, and true to line. Fairways were cut well, rough was managed good, fairway bunkers were well manicured. Greenside bunkers could use more sand in them but not awful. My favorite was hole 14, 528yrd par 5, has a stream the runs along the right side. As you drive up to the green and pass some palm trees you are greeted by a siiiiick cascading water fall. Its a challenging course but not so much that you don't have fun.
Pro shop and cart workers were fantastic. Filled the cart with ice and complementary waters before the round and refilled the ice at the turn. I don't remember seeing a mobile beverage cart on the course but the bar is located in a premium location for the start and turn if you wanted to grab something quickly. Toilet paper in the club house is single ply. After the round was greeted by staff to clean club heads.
Thank you so much Johnny for introducing me to one of my new all time favorites!» Close
