Amazing Classic Course

I love this course. It's not long but it requires strategic and precise shots to accomplish scoring. George Thomas is an all-time great course architect and this course is a testament to that. You start by playing out from the Inn and weave down into the valley and surrounding property in a supremely enjoyable routing. Memorable holes are littered all around the course and kikuyu grass provides a proper challenge from the rough. Strategic short par 4's, both short and long par 3's and tons of elevation change makes this arguably the best public course for the money in Southern California. Highly recommend it for elevated resort style golf.

80 degrees and breezy; perfect golf weather

Course overall in very good condition. #6 and 8 greens are rough and being tended to, shortened 28 tee box makes for an anticlimactic finish.

Greens Recovery in Progress

Hole 8 needs more time. Other than that hole, the course is in great conditions. Don't over-read the breaks as the greens roll pretty true.
