Course was in great shape

Played twilight and were able to play all 18. Pace of play was great with 15 minute tee times. Greens were in great shape and had lots of slopes. Keep the ball below the hole. Plenty of challenges and plays long.

Women be ware! Misogynist course!

I was extremely excited to go play a round of golf with my friend (we are female). Unfortunately 8 minutes before my tee off time the gentleman who was arranging the carts begins yelling my name. I go over and the 2 men that were scheduled to play with us became extremely annoyed when they saw it would be women they would have to play with. One gentlemen was extremely rude in mocking my friend and I. The man who works at Tahquitz was not only allowing this but joining in on the rude remarks in front of my face! I have never felt so typecast in my life. Extremely unfriendly worker that does not support or help women! If anyone is wondering we were not late but the men had already judged us based on our appearance.

Fabulous Golf Course

this municipal course is beautiful! The course is well maintained, very long and a great course for any golfer. We played 18 holes in about 3 hours with a cart. There are many 5 pars and very long 3 pars which gives you a lot of practice with your woods. also, the course is very forgiving with wide fairways and very little water to lose your ball in. We are senior golfers and we would highly recommend this course for a fun day out.

Very straight forward but fun course

Played the other course a couple years back in the summertime and conditions were not good. Decided to give the legend course a try this time and in the winter time. Conditions were great. Greens rolled true. Simple straightforward course but a lot of fun. Played on a Sunday and the round took just over 4 hours. Definitely would recommend this course to anyone. Good value for the money

Nice course

Played the Legends course. In good shape, pace of play was good. I'd recommend this course now. It can get beaten up with lots of play during the winter season.
