always an enjoyable outing at Atwater. Greens are kept in very good shape. It's winter almost so the fairways are not as lush as usual. But all in all it was an enjoyable experience. Thank you

Overall a great bang for your buck

Nice course to play 18. The course offers a mix up of hole lengths to allow all clubs to be used. Greens are in okay shape. The pace of play is great. The staff does a nice job preventing overbooking.

Great value for your money

I’ve played Rancho Del Rey for 30 plus years now and can attest that it’s in better condition now than it’s ever been. Considering it’s a public, semi private recourse that has endured recent droughts that limited their water usage, along with the recent lack of interest that has seen other golf courses close their doors. I think Rancho has done an excellent job of keeping the course in great condition and providing the nearby communities an awesome course for the public to enjoy.

Keep up the good work!
