We just need some rain.

The place is beautiful and the greens are as good as they can be. It has been so dry the fairways have dried up but besides that, you cant beat the view. We get some rain and this place will be 5 stars again.

Course needs a bit of TLC

Beautiful weather and surroundings however the course itself could use some work. The green fees should reflect the course conditions. Tee boxes were ok. Fairways were dry and brown. Greens were in decent shape. Considering current drought conditions, watering could be done in early evening/dusk? Watering at, 4ish made some tee boxes unusable and had to make shots around active sprinklers from tee to green..

Fair

Upon checking in a man light up a cigar in the next room and I mentioned a breathing issue as I was not able to breath and the comment was “oh that’s Don; he does it all the time “ vs oh let me tell him to put it out. Calif law not enforced and I puked on the fourth hole from it . A relaxing course to play with its layout and not busy with 2 or 3 groups behind you. Maintenance has some work to do with general weed eating and fixing non functional rest rooms on the course Since it’s not a course that gets watered thought spring would be a good time to play as my first time a year ago it was summer. It has great potential! Would love to see improvement.

Feel like a loser

The pro checked me in saying oh your the guy playing for free. When I said I wasn’t playing for free he said well we don’t get anything for you playing here. Then he said see those guys getting ready to T off, make sure you don’t go in front of them because they’re paying customers. Talk about feeling humiliated.

Typical Mountainous Coarse

Drought conditions are very prominent even this early in the summer season.. The fairways were dried out and very rough riding with carts. The coarse requires proper selection of clubs due to narrow fairways. In general & side hill rolls.

Great layout and friendly staff... too bad...

Too bad COVID financial times have forced management to let the gophers run rampant. The fairways are very potty with bare patches and the rough is really tall (4"-6" in places). Lost a lot of balls due to the long rough. Tee boxes really need TLC. The greens are the only really fair part of the course. They are doing their best to maintain the greens by watering (there were hoses left out near some of greens). Wish that it was possible for them to bring up the maintenance of the grounds. It was probably a really great place to play back in it's heyday.

Bad conditions

The course was in terrible condition. More gopher holes than grass. They allowed five somes and even six somes to play. For the price charged they should be ashamed. It’s worth about a quarter of what they actually charge. Needless to say I will not be going back.

Tough Course

This course is tough. You can be penalized for hitting a good shot in the wrong direction. However, if you play it right, it can be very rewarding. Friendly staff. Definitely enjoy coming here.

Used to be decent, but not anymore!

Its a dirt course, we moved our ball to the closest patch of green. Sometimes 10 plus yards. Sad!

What happened

First of all let's start with the range balls. Small bucket with 6 cracked balls. The Pro Shop is dark and gloomy. The course is set up nicely but the fairways can be muddy and a little weedy. Our golf cart barely ran and had a huge hole in the seat and metal hanging off the side. I spoke to a few Old-Timers who stated that the course is not what it used to be. They are down members and the course needs lots of work. We played this track years ago and it is sad to see its present condition.Good place to take beginners ...also allows frisbee golf...which tells it all.

Nice course

The course was in pretty good shape. Nice greens. However you need to play this course a few times to figure out all the tee box set ups and greens and yardage markers. Still a good course to play. Nice setting.
