Soft greens, ball checks and backspins. Fast green too. Tee boxes a little beat up. Fairways very clean. Sand amazing like sugar (and they recycle glass bottles to refill the sand traps!) 2 pm and after great rates.
Best OC 9 holes!
It’s walking only during Covid but not bad at all. Perfect fairways and greens. Tee shots from blue tee made it Challenging. Greens are not too challenging. Pace was great. No rush. Jack at pro shop was very friendly. Gent at outdoor snack bar very friendly as well. Valet crew were courteous. Wife and I here for first time and will be back. If u are a slicer, better get it fix b4 playing here.
Best 9 hole in south OC
Play early weekday and you’ll probably finish within hour. Pretty view, then had nice breakfast at restaurant onsite.
Incredible restaurant with a Sub-par course
The course layout is so close together, we almost got hit by a golf ball on 4 separate occasions within 3 ft each time! Twice! On the first hole, in fact, and only once did our group hear anyone yell FOUR.
Play this course at you own risk, or at least if your health insurance is up to date.
At $48 for 9 holes (walking) it’s not cheap either, there are far better courses nearby with a much better layout and often more scenic layouts to play on (and often much more reasonable rates), this is a course that I would skip unless you have the patience and health benefits to play “vacation golf” along with the resort guests.
Father and Son memory challenge
My son an I had an enjoyable time golfing. I have been playing here for over 50 years and it was his first time. I talked about other family members who played here and we both laughed our way through the beautiful canyon setting. I love this 9 hole golf course and love the changes to the pro shop, restaurant, and the rest of the amenities. If possible, I’ll be playing here at least another 20 years! The course was in great shape for winter golf and the pace was right on every hole. When my son visits again he dyed he wants to play here again!
This course is well worth it. The entertainment not of his name was really great.
They have really upgraded the course
The ownership of Ben Brown Golf Course has really improved the golf course. The greens are great and the fairways are in perfect condition
Tucked away in a canyon. Not too difficult. Easy to walk. We’ll definitely play there again!
Great nine hole course. Love to play the course more often but a little expensive for nine holes.
Lots of workers in course
There appears to be major infrastructure work going on, it’s loud and distracting
Lot of workers on course
Great course and conditions. Greens were outstanding. Only drawback was number of construction workers on holes 1,8 & 9. Major distraction, although work seemed important and it was a Monday
Best value in OC
BB is my favorite all around course in OC. views and course layout are best value around. Try to play much as possible. Staff are great. Course is challenging enough but great for beginners.
