Must Play

First time playing this course and we will most certainly be back. Greens, fairways, tee boxes, traps were all in good shape. Staff was very friendly and just had a great time.

Too expensive; poor value

Very nice course, just way too expensive compared to other comparable courses in the area. It is not worth the money

Course is beautiful and a fun challenge!

2nd time playing and was excited to get back. Back 9 is even more impressive visually then the front. Challenging but perfectly kept and extremely fun.

Last to leave

First of all it is the perfect time of year to play this coarse, very green, well manicured, slight breeze and 70 degrees you cant ask for better.
Second the wait staff, bar, and greens employees are wonderful, friendly, quick and polite. That being said the management is rude and demanding, ( Next time you snap you finger at me and tell me to hurry up will be the last). How dare you treat a paying customer that way, you self entitled, pretentious weasel.
$408 for 12 holes was well worth it until
Mr. Wantstogohomeearly felt the need to open his mouth.

Slow twilight play

A nice course but a shame that pace of play moves so slow. If pace of play is slow it’d be nice and fair if that was reflected in the price.

Great Layout

Forgiving front 9 turns into a tough back 9. Bring accuracy. Great course all around.

Nice course, hard to score low

The course is very nice and so is the staff. Hard to score for medium to high handicappers. Greens didn’t hold good approach shots and a lot of 3 putts happened for our group.

Fun Course, Two Different 9's

First time playing driving down from LA, definitely want to come back after leaving a few too many strokes out there. Carts don't have GPS in them so highly recommend scoping each hole on whatever golf app you use to figure out the right landing areas. Challenging course where you need to be locked in the whole way.

Two knocks on the course though. For the rate, you'd expect better maintained tee boxes and fairway conditions. Been a month+ since punch/over-seed and the fairways are still hard with brown spots. The other is that warm-up balls should be included at this price point.

Cart path only

Greens punched recently, cart path only, was a waste of $116. If I would have known before walking up to starter I wouldn’t have played there today.
