Amazing and challenging course..but…

The course is always on point and challenging. So Nothing bad to say about that. But today the pace of play just wasn’t in our favor…slow n backed up. However I’ve never seen this here. So I’m not complaining… However Zero snack shop open in the am…so no coffee or breakfast didn’t help. Let alone zero cart girl with any drinks offers while playing a 5 hour round didn’t help. Course =10 Service =2

Fun round and great staff

The team at Golf Club of California is top notch for a member experience, even if you are not a member. From the introduction at the pro shop to the staff in the restaurant to the cart girl, they are all there to make sure you enjoy your round.
I played in dry conditions, so the course played shorter than I imagine it would have otherwise, so it may have played harder if your ball was going off line. The greens were excellent and very consistent and the lies in the fairway were tight and reminded me of Ireland.

The members I met up with on the back nine were friendly and welcoming to a newbie on the course..

Great course but…

This a great course but discriminates against Golf Now Customers. How so you ask, well if you booked your time online you will not be allowed to check in until 10 minutes prior to your t-time. Staff informed me that that is the owners policy without any further explanation. So you watch other customers getting carts going to the parking lot and loading up their clubs and warming up while you stand there waiting for your 10 minute countdown.
I know this is a semi private club but to treat paying customers differently is not fair. So if they need the money that Golf Now customers provide they should rethink their policy or close the course to members only.

We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback, however, we're truly sorry to hear about your recent customer experience with us. We can assure you this is by no means the standard we aim to achieve for any of our guests and apologize for any misunderstanding or poor experience on behalf of our staff. Unfortunately we have had issues in the past with customers heading out to the course too early and are doing our best to resolve this, but your feedback has been escalated to our staff for necessary improvements. We would be happy to address any concerns with you further, so please feel free to reach out to Richard Ro, Director of Golf, directly at 760-451-3739. We hope we have the chance to welcome you back for a more positive golf experience in the near future.

Golf Now Check-In

Staff coupled with course were for the most part ok. What wasn't appreciated was during check-in. According to staff, people using Golf Now could NOT check-in until 10 minutes before your tee time. I was told that the course OWNER has mandated this. Of course this impacts on warming up (range, putting etc) prior to your tee time. I explained to the desk associate that I have already paid and am at the course. So why would they not issue a golf cart, range balls etc upon arrival. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Golf Now should contact the owner and get this rectified. I will NOT play there again or recommend the course to my friends and colleagues.
