Bang for your buck walking

Played the shorter course "Mesa Linda" great course for walking rate ($33.00) fairways were nicely maintained as well as the greens. Challenging but nothing a mid-to-high handicapper can't handle. Pace of play for 630am tee time was better than expected, guys in front of were looking like they were struggling but still kept the pace up. Definitely a new favorite of mine, I'll be back for sure for more, and to try out the more popular course according to my friend the "Los Lagos" side which directly adjacent to the Mesa Linda.

Meaa Linda Review

First-time I've played Mesa Linda course. Conditions were very good. Pace was decent as well.
I'll be back.
I prefer Los Lagos side more though.

Good Muni but crowded

Costa Mesa GC is a nice municipal course - better than Willowick but not close to San Clemente. Biggest issue for me is that Costa Mesa piles foursomes and a 10am tee time round on a Monday lasted 4.5 hours. No bueno!

Good day

It's a fair course. Hit the bad half decently and you will score well. Nothing daunting about it. Greens are a treat. For the amount of play it gets the conditions are great and the value even better.
