Staff is awesome, course is solid value

Course is solid value. It’s like playing golf in a park, but the greens are pure for the money you’re paying. Staff and restaurant are awesome and a big part of why I keep going back.

Good deal for the Money

The course is well used and most tees you hit off a mat. I am a relatively new player and that is fine with me. Decent driving range, nice little snack bar and the bar is now open. Here are my only complaints.
The back 9 needs some work back there. Lots of dirt bare areas with no watering going on.
I would like to see the mats removed in the spring.
No matter, I believe this golf course i still a good deal and will continue to golf here.

Do better

For Newport you really think this course would be better. Rude and unfriendly staff. All tee shots are off worn and wonky mats with most holes being less than 100 yards. It was tolerable until a terrible experience with the staff. Not coming back.

Enjoyable & Fun

This can be a fun course if pace of play is not so slow and grass start to grow. More dirt than turf. Most tee boxes are artificial turf. Close location to beach to get cool breeze throughout the round makes this course fun to play when weather is hot in inland Orange County.

Cheated

GOLFNOW advertisement describes an 18 hole executive course. No where is it stated this HOT DEAL is for nine holes. After paying and receiving the confirming email, it is finally mentioned this is for nine holes. I'm writing now because the same listing is available for NEWPORT BEACH at 2:10 PM.

Please correct this misleading and false advertisement immediately.

One and Done

Have driven by several times and decided to try it. Here is my take: "No carts allowed in the parking lot." This is a problem due to my age. I had to walk my bag of clubs, and I consider it to be a real inconvenience. Check in was easy, efficient, and pleasant.
Hitting off a mat and not being able to use a tee (no way to pierce the mat) made playing a high stroke deal.
Fairways??? No such thing. Clumpy grass, large barren areas with NO grass. The only parts of the course that appeared to be well kept were the greens, and they were excellent!
The course layout is very compact with the exception of having to cross busy streets.
YOU may think that the tee box locations are obvious, but I do NOT. If it hadn't been for teaming up with two other players who were familiar with the layout, I would have wasted a lot of time and effort deciding the location of the next tee box. It is a good thing I took a driving cart, or I would have been even more tired and frustrated, and with regard to the driving cart, it was old, but OK. At least the brakes worked.
In my opinion, "One and Done" would be my apt assessment.

Greens were in good shape

this course is great to practice your iron play with greens in good shape. course is obviously an older course with some tee boxes that aren't ideal. But its a good value to practice your full bag of irons if you choose with the occassional opportunities for your driver.
