Tee boxes were horrible as they sanded big areas of tee boxes and still put the tees within the sand! Made no sense! Greens were lightly sanded and very small punch holes which made them fast! Pace of play was good. Sand traps were consistent. Wish they would offer some golf deals.
Played Arroyo Trabuco 4/18. Only four weeks since they punched greens and they are in very good shape. Most rolled true. Some need 2 more weeks. The back half of #6 green has new sod and seems to be taking nicely - it looks good but the back half of green is closed for now - flag on the front. Green #8 also has some sod repair on the fringes. Four weeks ago the fairways look like the Sahara desert. Now they are green again with the warmer weather and being able to water. Looks like a golf course again. POP 4 hrs 15 minutes. Overall the course is in very good shape. Great staff. Thanks to the Arroyo team. Nice job!
Played 4/18 in the AM with a $82 green fee. Overall, course is in good shape. Forgot how open the course is now that they have removed or cut back so many trees. Greens were fantastic, but fairways/rough are still getting some work and some traps were essentially sand-less. One group threw everyone off, so the Marshall was scrambling to try and get groups back on pace. Still finished in 4:15. Saw the cart girl twice. Apparently they are tuning up for a US qualifier first or second week of May.

Overall, I wouldn't pay the rack rate of $135 midweek or $185 weekend here, but at a discount, no issues.
Played Tues 4/17 9:30 tee time, last group of the Seniors Men's club, 2 members and I as a guest. Course was in great shape.

Tee boxes fairly level, a couple divots here and there, the fairways were lush, like carpets, with an occasional un-sanded divot from earlier groups, greens were lush and quick. The rough was not easy to get out of so I hit irons to get back in play. Bunkers were disappointing, hard pan with little sand.

Customer Service as always was outstanding. Can't beat the ambiance of the course, and the views.
Teed off Monday morning at 7:20 finishing in 4:15. The greens for the most part have recovered from aeration. They rolled good with medium speed and held shots. The fairways are mostly good with some thin spots throughout. The rough near the fairways is mostly good but the farther you stray the patchier it becomes. The one bunker I played from was in good condition while the others appeared to be well groomed. The tee boxes are fair to good mostly due to mild unlevelness. Fun varied layout with water coming into play on several holes. The staff is friendly.
Played Tues April 17th at 7am, check in fast and friendly, no one in front of us so we got out 8 minutes early, this course was closed last week when we played The Players so I wasn't sure what to expect from the greens, I must say they were in much better shape than I expected. The tee boxes were level, fairways nice, rough a little longer and being wet made it penal, bunkers sand was ok, and greens had small holes, a touch of sand you would have to clean the ball, but rolled very well, another week or 2 and they will be real nice, we were a walking 3 some with no one in front of us and a riding 4 some behind us that did not catch us, POP was 326, almost finished too soon for lunch
Played here on Saturday the 14th. I have played this course a number of times over the years. Let me start off by saying that the course is probably in the best shape I have seen it in the last 4-5 years. Is it still rough around the edges..... yes but you can see the constant work being done to improve. Greens while slower than I’m use to here are also purer than I have seen them in some time. Tee boxes were lush but in need of a mowing, my shirt tees for irons on par 3’s were barely long enough to hold my ball above the turf. Fairways were the greenest I have seen in many years. Rough is still mostly non existent with the exception of around the greens. Bunkers were in need of some more sand but mostly playable, I found 4 of them! I’m told new carts are on order and you can see the new planting’s going in around the course. The bones are there and the work is being put it, time will tell how the course and the crowds respond! My biggest complaint is the understaffing. I remember under previous ownership there always seemed to be guys around to lead you to the tee, clean your clubs or even just answer a question. We ended up going off alittle late because we were expecting to be notified when we were up but never were. They still have some issues and some growing pains to work out but from what I’ve seen I have faith that they can get straightened out. Still a challenging course and the green hills right now make it a scenic one too! At $90 it might be a bit of a stretch but $70 after 2 is a decent price. If you wrote this course off during the bad years give it another look.
Walked on at 2pm. The course is in good shape. Greens are healing well. Finished in under 4 hours. The starter got me out right in front of a high school match. I really appreciated that.
Walked the Blues (59.5/97/3932) with Joel, Doug & Jim in slightly less than 4H as part of a shotgun twilight. Fun group to play with! The weather was sunny and around 80 with a little breeze.

Ted Robinson Jr. design from the mid 70's. Par 33-31=64 Executive course. Ten short par 4's, Eight par 3's. The par 4's are a good variety. A few are grip it and rip it where longer hitters can have a go at the green. Many are layup holes because of water close to the green. The course plays longer than the scorecard indicates for this reason. Other par 4's are risk/reward tight holes. The par 3's were a good mixture as well. Ranging from #10, which was playing 215 to a back pin all the way to #2, which was playing 114 to a front pin.

The tees were semi lush and well maintained.

The fairways were lush, nice to play from.

The rough was lush and mowed down to a good pace of play height, not very penal.

The sand needs separate ratings. Some of the traps have been refurbished with white, silicone sand and are immaculate. Others have crustier, brown sand that are not nearly as good to play from, just average. Overall, they are good.

Numerous greens have lakes in front of them and they are well guarded with sand. They are medium sized and look thin. However, they putt nice, firm and smooth/medium speed. Down hill putts were treacherous, you need to stay below the hole here. No tiers or huge breaks on these greens, but there were few dead straight putts.

The customer service was excellent from all encountered. I had lunch my previous visit and it was standard golf course cuisine at reasonable prices. No drink cart, did not see water stations on the course, so you need to bring your own H20. All grass driving range with a short game area. Carts were basic with no GPS.

The course is well maintained, I was told the membership owns the course. Both times I have been here it was very busy with member events. Excellent course for seniors, ladies and players who want to work on their irons. Recommended.
Had a morning tee time, not very busy.

This is a report on the course after aeration: the greens are a week away from being in good condition.

Fairway are getting green and have some body to them.

Traps have good sand but a lot are not raked by the golfers.

Good deal $$ if you are a resident of Oside and a senior!

POP: at 4 hours.
Played here on 4/13. Greens were still recovering from aerification but didn't impact the game too much. I was happy with the condition overall. The POP was a bit slow at about 4:45. Watch out for mountain break.
I played Rancho San Marcos this last Sunday and the weather was perfect for a round of golf on this beautiful course. The lush green fairways and greens were great to play on. Some of the greens were small but challenging, however most of the fairways were open with fairway bunkers. The staff was pleasant and very friendly. I would play this course again and would recommend it to anyone.
