Course flooded

Thirty percent of entire course is flooded with Santa Ana River water forcing course staff to shorten 18 holes to 9 holes.
Not a good time to play now.

Wash out

Booked the regular course on line. Drove an bhour and a half to be told it was closed because of all the rain. Short executive course 9 holre was open. Should not have been rough shape. There should be notification after booking on the closure or they should not be allowed to post times. Very frustrating.

Amazing Course Layout!!!

Played on a Wednesday starting at 10:15am and finished 2:30pm (4 hours 15 minutes) First time playing here and really enjoyed the course layout. Big elevation changes and some blind shots into higher greens. Putting area is really nice and they have a 18 hole putting course. Will def come again!

Love this course

Best value for a course in Orange County. Good food and very friendly people in snack bar, hilarious kick in the pants with person checking you in, very helpful in getting people organized
. Been playing on the course for over 10 years and will continue as long as I can golf. I always recommend my friends and family and they are always satisfied. Keep the prices and service the same please, great job.
