Fun course at right price

Fun course in Santa Ana, CA. Short but we’ll maintained with lots of challenges along the way. Greens are true and some long par 4. Not much elevation, but some very narrow fairways that make you command control, or bring extra balls.

Maybe if you are a local. But traveling 50 miles…

Ok so, this course shouldn’t be that tough. But, it is. The river bed makes this place a target golfers dream. Not a lot of room for error. If you are a hacker don’t play here you will lose balls and be frustrated by the set up. The greens are nice and roll really well. If you are a local and this is your best option by proximity. Fine! But do not. I repeat do not travel to play this course. We played behind a twosome whom were playing multiple balls and losing them and then trying to find them and we even asked to play through and they blamed the slow play on the foursome in front of them and they were playing slow but these two were awful. It ended up being a close to 5 hr round and we left at 16. Play at your own risk. Practice facility at this course is really really nice though. Use it.

Laid back fun golf course

I like this course because of its relaxed atmosphere. It’s a fun little course with all reachable par fives. The fairways are not well maintained but the greens are in very good shape. At under $50 green fee, it’s a course you can chase your personal best score.
