Golf course Fun

This Golf Course is a fun little course. We were not realizing that only one hole demande having your driver. I wish we would’ve known how small the course was before playing. Although we had a great time and Vic was the man of the course and helped the flow of pace wonderfully!

Good place to play

I choose the late tee times due to high early rates for an executive course. In all game was good. Course was good for executive. My only gripe was the group in front were slow. Teaching someone who should absolutely not hit the ball. Take him to the range till he can make decent contact and keep a pace. Other than that, not bad. It's my go to when all the big course tee times are gone.

Geese Poop Everywhere

The course needs to manager the issue with the geese/bird poop EVERYWHERE on the fairways. Walked the course and had to be careful with every step to not hit the land mines.

Jam packed

They were already backed up when we got there at 6:45. Our tee time was 7:20 and we didn’t tee of till 7:45. We had to wot through 2 groups at almost every hole. There were constantly people on our fairway from other holes. Right next to soccer and baseball fields so people yelling and screaming during our swings. Not a great experience. Group behind us said it isn’t always like that but the group ahead of us said it’s been that way all summer.

It's Ok

The course itself is ok. Fairways decent not that soft but for the most part green. My beef is people please do not give lessons to your kids on the course. Had to pass 2 in front that were giving tips and lessons. Notbthe place. Range it. Also AM hours are a bit steep 51 bucks for 3k yards. So I golf late here. Won't stop coming here. Just later. My son and I enjoyed it good game good time.

Great course

Plays fast on a weekday (3 1/2 hours), not so much on a weekend. Tee boxes could use some TLC, but overall condition of the course is great. Will definitely play again soon.

Worst golf course in OC

Worst conditions I've seen here in a long time. Extremely slow pace of play. Our tee time was 7:22 and we teed of around 7:45. How can you be that backed up that early?

Every single tee box was horrendous. Greens were very thick in some areas and poorly maintained.

Wait until you get to the 14th hole where the lake looks and smells like a toilet. Yes. TP in the lake too!

Waaaaaaayy over priced for this venue. Oh and our round was 5 hrs for a par 62. Yikes.

Fairways and Traps need help

Fairways have a lot of bare places and grass is being invaded with non-grass ground cover.
