Course in good shape, they are working to make it better, which is good to see. Play here weekly and it was the first time in months it wasn't a sloooww play day.( Marshall needed) Would love to see a a gate on the 10th hole for walkers, so we don't have to walk thru wet tunnel and speed up play. However the snack bar restaurant needs management no fries, onion rings, and half draft beer was out. Overall it was a pleasant day. See ya next week.

No smiley face here

They ask 45 to walk or 60 to ride, "gouging", for this course!
They threw in lunch, but the chicken tenders {forgot the tender part} were over cooked or twice cooked? Like trying to eat a rock.
Better courses in ventura for sure.

Great Value

This course is INEXPENSIVE! The greens are in great shape, and the rest of the course is adequate. The holes have a lot of character so it makes for some interesting choices. The worst thing about it is how slow it can play, but know that going in and enjoy how inexpensive it is to play 18 with a cart here! The carts do NOT have GPS, so bring your rangefinder. It can be windy here, but not all the holes are exposed so even on a windy day there are some holes where you'll get a reprieve from the breeze. At the turn there's a snack shop and you can go in and help yourself to ice and water to refill your water bottle. You can drive the cart out into the parking lot to load your clubs into your car when you're done.

Very Pleased

We played here for the first time and really enjoyed ourselves. Great staff, and the course was a fun one. Green fees include a nice lunch and a small bucket of balls. For $65.50/person, that also included the cart fee.

Sterling Hills

10:30am start. Check in & Starter were especially pleasant folks. Tee boxes were in very good condition. Fairways were nice, not super lush, but good coverage. Rough not very deep, easy to hit out of. Rough near outskirts of the course gets dicey, mixed long weeds ect, but it's really far out. Greens were firm. Rolled really nice, med-fast. Collar areas cut very tight, in great shape. Bunkers fine, with an inch or 2 of loose sand on top of firmer ground. POP was around 4 hours. No drink cart on a Monday, don't know about other days. "Free" lunch with green fee. Food fine, although I would prefer less expensive round. Overall Sterling is in pretty good shape & I had a good time. I recommend & I'll be back!

New Favorite Course

I live in Newport Beach and there are loads of courses near me but Sterling Hills has become my new favorite. I drive about 1 hour and 20 minutes north and the drive is 100% worth the round of golf. You get a great pace of play, pristine fairways, great greens, and great bang for your buck. Love this place! I have played twice in the past month and already made another tee time to go back in another 2 weeks.

I love this course. Not the hardest and not the easiest. It’s fair. Very well cared for. Greens are super even with the huge amount of play it gets. Love the staff. Personable and efficient. Clearly one of the better Los Angeles County courses. Wish it was closer. Far away from the San Fernando Valley but worth the drive.
Thank you
