Some minor damage

Luckily I was pared up with two guys who knew the course. Greens in good shape, some damage to fairways from recent storms. I played Gold tees on Canyon & Lakes 9's for 4800 yards total. Mostly bogies and doubles, not uncommon for first time play.

Good value and condition

Many courses in the area have sustained weather damage. Blacklake's damage was minimal. Being a senior I would have preferred for the Red tees to be a neutral color for both seniors and women. The whites are too long and the golds are not really tees on many holes. The electric carts are great, and the staff friendly

great day playing at Black Lake

The coarse is in good shape. The fairways need little TLC, but, all in all I had a great time. The staff are always friendly

Ok experience

The course needs to be maintained much better for the price point in my opinion. It puts itself as a resort due to cost, but the maintenance needs improvement, most likely management of the course if the culprit. Drove in surrounded by beautiful homes- well kept streets, the course played like a muni.

Not worth it

The lakes course was in ok shape.
At least it had some green stuff to place your ball on. I would not dare to call it grass. Lots of gopher mounds and bear spots on the fairways. We played 2 club free drop in the fair way just to have something to hit off of. Greens and chipping in fair shape.
The canyon course was the same as above only twice as bad. Plus there was debris from the trees all over the course. A total lack of maintenance. Don't waste your time or money here. Go to Morro Bay golf course.

Worst course in 2023

The marmots have taken over. Fairways very poor. Tee boxes were horrible.
This by far has been the worst course I've played in 2023.

Worth Playing for Money

The fairways are in need of repair. Greens are well kept a little slow.
