Taking advantage because of COVID

Simply stated, they are trying to make an extra buck off of COVID by taking advantage of us golfers. I booked a tee time for the 4 of us on GolfNow for $49 each plus $10 in booking fees. The rate INCLUDED the golf cart. Since I am older and have pre-existing conditions, I asked for another cart to be on the safe side because of COVID-19. The guy in the pro shop then charged me an extra $20 for the cart, even though my rate included the cart. You would think that since we need to socially distance because of COVID, that they would be more like many of the golf courses in the area and accommodate golfers that require a separate cart. I will not be golfing there in the future, and since I am the one in charge of booking tee times for 4 different foursomes, neither will the other 15 of us

Charged Me For missing a t-time (more than the booking fee)

I have never had this happen in decades of playing public courses. Will challenge the charge on my credit card. Golf Now and Golf Club Of CA should be embarrassed. Never using golf now or playing the course again.

Absolute gem of a course

The only reason why course condition was rated 4/5 is because it’s winter time and the course had some brown patches, and some parts of the fairway being a little bare. However, it’s winter here and I can totally see how the course would be in an immaculate conditions if the climate was better.

Tee boxes were the best I’ve seen so far in SoCal. Greens were running pure.

Course design was extremely enjoyable. There was a good amount of distance between holes to take short mental breaks, and the course is both challenging and enjoyable at the same time.

Short par 4s had tighter fairways, but long par 5s had very generous fairways to make playing very enjoyable. I really appreciated the fact that none of the par 3s were more than 200 yds, but they called for precise shot selections to hit the correct parts of the green to get to the pin.

Overall, this is one of the top 3 courses in my list of course that I would like to play whenever I get a chance.

fun and challenging course to play

i love the course and wd like to play often though winter is better weather wise as summer here is too hot. So, this time of the year you can expect the fairways are in dormant but here are not too bad like many other course, still see greenish color. And the greens are always good. tee shots are very important placed in the right spots of the fairways as most of them are slopped. we are talking about in-play and lost ball kind of difference. So, some local knowledge is a great help.

look forward to go back play another round in the near future.

Just another course nothing special go play arrowood or the crossings fairways are dirt and white grass

This course is just another course nothing special nothing to remember I would not return not because of any particular issue just the bland design and overall conditions of the fairways which were hard pan dirt and white grass when there was grass the greens were OK but there were severe Divet marks on every green and it just felt like there were not enough maintenance staff to keep this place to a standard of wanting to return I would play the crossings which is a lot nicer Or Arrowood any day this course isn’t bad but it’s just boring and conditions could be much improved if you’re in the area didn’t get a special for under $50 then I would say go for it but anything more than that it’s not worth it especially if you want to finish
