Slow play

Tee times are 8 minutes apart. During COVID they were 10 minutes apart. 2 hours and 45 minutes to play front 9, Waited on all but 2 shots. Need more spacing in between tee times.

Slow pace of play

Unless you have 5-6 hours in your schedule for a round of golf don’t play here. There are golfers who have no business playing from blue and even white tees taking 5+ shots to reach par fours and 3+ for par threes. Golfers do not know their limitations which results in three to four groups waiting on par 3’s. The Marshall sits in his cart and does nothing to speed up play. Half the players on Los Lagos should be playing a pitch and putt!

Aside from the pace of play the greens are in great condition for the amount of play they get and the ball marks scarring the otherwise consistent surface.

Dress code is non-existent here. Come in you board shorts and tank top with flip flops and you will fit right in…

Los Lagos

Not a bad course to play. Greens are in great shape. Very very slow pace of play. 5 1/2 hour round. Normal to sit on a tee box with 4 other groups waiting to tee off.
The actual starter on the tee box is a great guy. Very friendly and helpful. Sean in the clubhouse is the most unfriendly person I have ever dealt with on a golf course. Not sure what his issues are but he is unfriendly

Excellent Municipal Course

Generally the course was in good condition . There were some fairways that had spotty grass and a couple of greens that seem to be effected by a virus. Pace of play was good.

The course Marshall was an jerk

Course is dry in many places, but still good conditions. Marshall for starting people was having a bad day, and was very rude.

Los Lagos

Best greens on any public course I have played in Orange County. Only complaint is pace of play. Be prepared to play a 6+ hour round of golf. This is every time I have played here

Great pace of play

We played on Labor Day Monday and i was pleasantly surprised by the pace of play. Just over 4 hours with only intermittent waits.

Course was in pretty good shape for Mesa Linda. I would say that I think the snack bar on the course should be open on a holiday. I'm guessing normally on Monday's it isn't open, but when it's a holiday it should be. This is the 2nd holiday monday i've played where it was closed.

Since the course layout doesn't take you back to the clubhouse/restaurant until after you finish it's important to have that snack shack open.

Labor Day

For a holiday weekend, the pace of play was pretty good. The course was in great shape. The only issue through out the day was the over watering. Puddles all over the place. Mostly in the rough and the bunkers, but more than you would like to run into. Other than that the course was great.

Slow Pace of play

Course is fun but it slows down in specific areas (4,5,6,7,8,9) on Lagos, and then 14,15,16,17 lagos. Always waiting on players.

Can never finish a round in under 5 hours unless you get a 6 AM tee time.
