Very nice place to play

Everything worked well here today. Tee from grass, nice fairways and pretty fast greens. Well maintained traps. We started on time and pace was great. Had a wonderful time.

PS - there were indeed a lot of goose droppings which might explain why the grass was so green ;-)

Great Round Today!

The course was looking in pretty good shape and the greens too. The geese were less in the way today but beware the droppings! Was glad to play here today as I think soon things are changing over to the Top Golf Corp. Get in your last rounds at The lakes as we know it!

Good little course

Course is fun but very small, so if you don’t have control of irons don’t risk it. Group of 4 older women this morning displayed the worst course etiquette I’ve seen in years. Extremely slow rate of play, 10+ strokes and still putt out every hole like it’s LPGA. It’s not just the bad short hits, it’s leaving clubs in middle of course instead of pulling to a side so it would take twice as long as needed for every hole

Not worth it at the current price

I usually play here as a last resort if I can’t get a round in anywhere else and 80% of the time I’m disappointed. The course layout is above average but it’s very short (if you hit your sand wedge 90-100 yards you’ll be teeing with your sand wedge or lob wedge on 6/9 holes) and so poorly maintained. Geese droppings everywhere including on the greens and the greens are spotty. They’ve jacked up their prices and done away with driving range deals, and I’d say value wise the course should cost more like $15 (only because they have the two par4s), not $22-$26

Good 9 hole course.

Bird sanctuary that also has golf.

Pace of play wasn’t great but it was Saturday morning so nothing out of the ordinary for LA. 2 short par 4s the rest all par 3s, with some really short holes 70-80yards.

I thought the greens were in great shape with good roll.

Would play again

Not bad for a beginner course.

The course itself wasn't in good shape but its still fun to play. I would definitely bring a beginner person here. I struggle on my short game so this course is good to practice my short game. I would still play here again.

Hackers...

Every hole requires a 10 min. wait....poor spacing and player management (mom & dad with two kids play as two? (they were supposed to play with us....but waited until we tee'd off and were on the green until they came out to the tee box)

Nice Course-Don't Mind the Poop

The layout of the course has various degrees of elevation with some flat, uphill and downhill holes. Great bunker locations around green. There are a couple of par 4's (225+ yards), some short (<85 yards) and mid par 3 (<150 yards). Beautiful weather, nicely preserved greens, lots of Canadian Geese, other exotic birds, and a lake to boot. As long as you don't mind the geese/bird poop, and there is a lot everywhere, from tee box to greens at every hole, then you will enjoy this course.
