Great course with scenic views

Fun golf course. The rolling hills and terrain will test your game. Tee boxes in great condition and the greens are great. Nice golf carts as well. I enjoy playing this course when visiting the area.

Great place. Slow round

Live this course. Beautiful, challenging. Round was over 5 hours. Too long. For the price, there should be a Marshall on the course to oversee of slow play.

Awesome Course

Great course with beautiful scenery. Greens were in great condition. Fairways need a little work but played well. A little expensive, but not terrible.

Slow pace, little no course sheriff

It’s a beautiful course but I was surprised to find that there was no one managing the post at the first tee. The pace of play was SLOW and I wasn’t sure if we’d finish off the bat because we started at 420 but at 8 we were only at hole 13 or 14 till we called it quits because it got too dark. Also the guys behind us hit into us towards the end and I could hear them laughing. I got hit into last time I was here and one of the guys I got grouped with got so mad he just left. Like I said, beautiful course but I’d have a lot more fun at a cheaper course and wouldn’t have to worry about getting hit into with the same pace of play.

Tournament practice round

Last played here over 10 years ago but returned to do a tournament practice round. Course is demanding. Demands length and precision. Around the green you need to be proficient with different types of lies. Greens were bumpy and on the slow side but that might have been due to having a 3:39 tee time.

5 hour round

I tee’d off around 3:20 and didn’t finish until 8:08pm.
All I have to say is where is the Marshall? 3-4 groups waiting at par threes for a course I hold to a high standard is indefensible. I understand players play at their own pace but it would have been nice to see a rep from the club move things along. I didn’t expect to have a 5 hour around with an hour drive back to LA put a major wrinkle in my plans that evening.
