Put some sand in the bunkers

As always, we were joined by nice people to full our our group. Play wasUnusually Slow, 4 1/2 hours. I'm getting really frustrated that the bunkers are basically packed dirt.

Great course

I’m amazed at how hard the course staff work to keep this course in good shape. It gets a lot of play but the greens- tees- & fairways are always in good shape and when there is an area (fairway) that needs work they are on it. Good job.

Annoying Grounds Crew

My brother and I play Mesa Linda about 4 times per month. We love the course as it fits the more seasoned golfer. What is absolutely annoying is the grounds keeping crew. I understand they have to do their job, But when they know golfers are around I would appreciate if they don't get in the way when you are trying to tee off or worse park their vehicle in the middle of the fairway and just walk away. I don't want to hit anyone let alone someone who is trying to do their job but they need better supervision and instructions when doing their job during play.

First Time Playing

First time here

Visited course few times but never played until now.
Not a easy nor hard.
If you can shot bomb / long hitter then you have advantage.
Need to have good control on approach shots.
Green were fairly fast (loved it)
I wasn’t fully recovered from injury therefore definitely coming back for better score

Surly Sean the Starter

Please help me understand why Sean the starter at the check-in window is still employed here??? He is the most miserable, unfriendly, and disagreeable human being you will ever encounter. This guy was born in a bad mood!

As for the course, if you play under 5 hours on a weekday consider yourself lucky. Three to four groups stacked up on all par 3’s. No one enforcing pace of play. People playing blue tees that should be playing silver (forward tees). Others leave their carts 50 yards in front of the green while they putt and then leisurely stroll back to the cart forcing group behind them to wait. Why they don’t pull their carts behind green so when they are done putting the group behind is able to hit. If it takes you five shots to reach a par 4 maybe you should be playing shorter courses.

Bunkers are full of footprints and greens have multiple unfixed ball marks.

So many people playing golf these days who lack golf etiquette. Wasn’t this bad pre-Covid.

Another Round @ Mes Linda

Course is great overall. The tee boxes and greens were in good shape. The fairways are more typical of a muni course with some bare spots and areas where they have re-sodded to alleviate the situation

Bad day of golf

Beautiful day. The wife and I hadn’t played in quite a while due to several deaths in our family, so we were really looking forward to it.
The cart died on the 8th green.
It took 45 minutes for them to bring us a new cart and by then we didn’t have enough time left to finish as we had an appointment later that afternoon, so we went back to the pro shop and requested a refund. They refused but did give me the card of the manager, who of course doesn’t answer his phone. Totally ruined our day. I’m 63 and have been playing most of my life and have never had a cart quit, nor seen someone stranded on a course like this. Disgraceful equipment management.
