A record breaker

Today I played on the worst condition course in my 70 years. From the tee to the greens, miserable. My guess is it will be closing soon. My golfing partner was warned about the conditions but they still charged full fee! No warm fuzzy feeling today.

Totally Unplayable

Years ago this was a very nice course with a great layout. As it is today, it is totally unplayable; it’s actually inappropriate that they would charge people money to attempt to play this course. The fairways are basically rock-hard dirt and gopher holes, and the greens are a mixture of green or brown wet patches, sometimes with mounds of dirt on the greens themselves. The staff was kind and friendly, but apparently the owner has no business owning a golf course. Let’s hope for better days ahead.

Tee time great and that's about it. $65 for that course is way too much. No grass on fairways and greens were so slow, bumpy and deep divots all over the green. Our cart had a flat tire. Overall just plain terrible.

This was once a nice course, but neglect has ruined it

The burnt-out fairways and greens, plus the multitude of gopher holes on every hole practically make it unplayable. It's a shame because it's a nice layout and would be a healthy challenge if in decent shape. Unfortunately, it needs a healthy infusion of cash (at least $2 million) and a lot of TLC to make it an attractive option.

Worst Maintained Course I’ve Played In CA

I played Castle Creek this morning and couldn’t finish 18 holes - the course was that poorly maintained. There were gopher holes on every fairway, near the greens, and even on the green. There was a temporary green on the front nine that was mentioned upon paying $60+ for this horrible course. The tee boxes were in disastrous shape as well; over grown, weeds, gopher holes, etc. Fairways - quite simply - the worst I’ve played on a course in all my years playing golf (over 25). You won’t have a true putt due to poorly maintained greens as well.
Additionally, the signage is just really poor as well for each hole. If you have never played it, you’ll have questions on what hole you’re supposed to be playing as there are some “blind” fairways from the tee box and you have zero idea where you’re going off the box.

Highly, highly encourage you going somewhere else but there is no doubt in my mind this may be one of the most over priced dumps in SoCal. The rate for this track is severely over priced and I ended up leaving after 9 holes due to the conditions of the course. It was disgusting.

Not work the $

Play here if you don't mind over paying for a course that hasn't been watered or mowed in forever and you don't mind playing behind several 6 -somes. It looks like it may have been a fun course at one time. Some of the greens were so bad we had to treat areas as ground under repair. Not worth what they are charging.

Complete trash

Course not kept up. Nobody works on the course, cuts the grass, etc. only the lady at the register is there along with the course starter who drives around following u drunk. Only good note is the course is wide open. Nobody plays there and I can see why. I’d pay 10 bucks max to play here. 65 was complete ripping us off.
