Excellent conditions with a fun and challenging layout.

Conditions were fantastic with large, tricky greens and clean fairways. The course gets a bit narrow and there's plenty of bunkers to infuence your club choice. Challenging but fair. Course got a tad backed up on the first few holes but smoothed out for a sub 4 hour round.

buddies from torrance

one golfer had best round, eventhough it was one of his most difficult course. Others shared it was worth to come back again. One minor issue, front nine pace was right on target, but back nine for some reason, it slowed down quite alot. Did not get to play 17th and 18th hole

Bring your A Game !

This is a fun and challenging course to play. Make sure you get a lay of the land before you swing away , if you have that big drive and can place it you will be very happy. Putting was also very tough because most of the green are rolling. The best part is the view and the staff. We will be back again (with an extra sleeve of balls) for what is one of the best top 10 course in OC! enjoy it with a friend it helps when you cry with someone....Gotta Try it> Blessings JF

Tourney Day = Slow Play

Make sure to check their tournament schedule when playing here. We were delayed for 50 minutes along with slow play from the tournament players in front of us. Hard course to play in and even harder when you are waiting 15 minutes for your next swing.

Black Gold

Pace of play was slow. Took 5 hours to pay on a Sunday. They should separate the tee times a little more.

The greens, the layout and staff were great!!

Difficult course due to hilly terrain.
Didn’t know the back greens were sanded - completely white with sand. Wish they had done only a few holes and not spoilt the outing

Good Track!

It was extremely hot for Orange County on the day we played. You should consider bringing your own water as there was none on the course. Marshal did bring by ice for the cooler during the round. Very fair course. Couple of holes with blind tee shots. Best to pair up with someone familiar with course. Several areas had "beware of rattlesnakes" signs in case you missed your landing areas. Greens a little slow. Good track. Would play again.

Nice Staff, Horrible everything else

Pace sucks, obnoxious other people playing the course, for $605 for a 3 some, course reminds me of an excavation site. Never coming back. All this course has is about 1/2 of the staff is super nice, other half wants to leave.
