Greens were too slow for an excellent review.
Seems like an odd time of year for aeration.
But still a nice course but for 62 bucks I want fast greens!! Or notification for the punched greens.

The pictures are not what you’re playing. Over booked, dry fairways, slow greens. Angeles national is way better public course

$62 twilight round with aerated greens and slow play

Paid $62 for tee time with cart. Without any warning the greens were freshly sanded and aerated and we played 10 holes in 3 hours before. Poor show from what is a sick course.

Unplayable Greens

Love this course, but they need to put an aeration warning up and lower greens fees. Putts were just your best guess of when it was going to bounce off line or just get stuck in sandy mud that is covering the greens. Made the choice to play here instead of somewhere closer that was up front about the aeration only to be disappointed. Round also took over 5 hours...

Please hire a marshal to speed up play

I've been playing Rustic almost every week for the last 5 years, and it's been sad to see average rounds on weekend mornings go from 4 hours to 5+ hours over the last year. The weekend tee sheet was full even before the pandemic, so the difference in pace comes from the golfers playing the course now. With the extra money the course has taken in from the fee increases, they should hire a marshal (or two) to make sure groups are keeping up pace, especially early in the morning.

As for the course - it's the best public layout in the SoCal area, cannot say enough great things about the design. The course stays fun week to week due to pin locations that provide different strategic challenges depending on wind direction, etc.
