Played today, in an SCGA event. POP was a great 4 hours, given the heat (high 90's). And before I forget, this course needs more water stations (3 is not enough). And 1 (yes 1) bathroom? What the hell (good thing there a lot of big trees). Never saw the beverage cart once??. Course is set in a beautiful valley, nestled up against some beautiful (though brown) foothills. The first thing that jumped out today, was that the fairways (while great/green lush) provided no (absolutely none) roll. Tee boxes were immaculate. Rough outside of fairways was thick and difficult. Bunkers were the largest/deepest I have ever encountered playing golf (how I escaped them, I do not know but bought lotto ticket on way home). I heard no complaints from playing partners who did. Greens (wow are they large) were very good. They chipped/putted great all round. Having checked in with SCGA rep, I cannot comment on customer service. Two holes (11 par 5 18 par 4) have water which is playable and are just spectacular. Not saying the rest of the course is lacking. They do have great par 3's on the course. And many great par 4's. I would say, that if you do have the opportunity to play this course, do not pass it up. But pick a cooler day.

Having not played here in many months, decided to give it a go today. First off at dawn and POP was 2.5 H (walking). Found the course to be in decent playing condition. Most of the tee boxes were in fine shape, but did find a couple, that were chewed up (not a big deal). Bunkers were all clean and playable, with no issues (was in 2). Fairways had satisfactory coverage (found a few brown/bare spots) and provided good roll and lies, all round. Very little (if any) rough to deal with. Greens were all clean, in good shape w/o divot damage and chipped/putted just fine all round. Customer service was excellent at all levels. An enjoyable round of golf, IMO.

First off this AM, under the lights on # 1 (as the sun was coming up) and # 2 and the sun was up on # 3. POP was 2.5 H. Course is in really nice condition. Not one issue with a tee box, as they were clean/level. Fairways gave good roll and lies all round. Bunkers (which I luckily found none, are all being redone) are all playable at present. Not much rough outside of the fairways/greens and what is there, is manageable. Greens are really nice at present. All cut, clean and chipping/putting well. Customer service was excellent at all levels. IMO it is recommended and they have some great early times now available. Golfzing is running $25 rounds with cart (or mention it at check in). Excellent GPS in carts.

Played today in a nice POP of 3 H. Course is holding its own, during this hot spell. Fairways have good coverage (very few bare spots) and will give acceptable lies and good roll. Tee boxes are all clean, with no issues. Virtually no rough at all on the course presently and what is there, is of no issue. Bunkers still need more sand (please). Greens are very good (nice and green), receptive to shots, chip and putt well (and clean of damage). Customer service was excellent at all levels. IMO the course is better than some of the choices in the area (Whittier, Brookside, LA Royal Vista, Diamond Bar, Alhambra, Los Amigos).

Played today at 10:30 and POP was 4:15. Not bad. Must have been because Weber got everyone moving, trying to stay up with him (LOL). Not a lot I can add that he has not already commented on. But I bet he did not play with someone who had a bottle of whiskey in their bag (really). Or another one who smoked his pipe with marijuana (yep). Played a lot of golf in my life, with many people around the world, but these were both new to me. Does this mean, Weber is not going to renew his LA County senior card (??). BTW - my deal with my Sr card, was only $25, with a cart, a sleeve of balls and a drink at the turn (not bad $16.50 + 8.50 for the cart, sleeve and drink). And that was w/o any coupon? And if you ever saw the old clubhouse and cafe, what they have done with the remodeled facilities are very nice. Customer service excellent at all levels.

Played today and it will be the last time playing here. Scheduled a tee time for 12:30 as the online booking showed light traffic. Check in was a nightmare. Not only did the guy behind the counter not have a clue in performing his duties, but the 4 some checking in was totally unprepared to even check in? I said to the clerk "I hope they play faster than they check in"? Little did I know my prophecy would be true? After 4.5 hours my group had only played 15 holes (and we left at that point). I saw several carts that said "ambassador" on them riding around, but not one of them acknowledged our request to come talk to us? The tee boxes are terrible. The fairways are in poor shape. The bunkers are not in decent playable shape. The greens are like concrete. Why in the world would anyone put up with these type of conditions, is beyond me. Customer service was deplorable. If this is the best the City of Pasadena can provide its residents, then they obviously could care less and have no idea on how to run/maintain a golf complex. BTW I would have rated it, but it was not worth a rating.

Played today in a 3 H POP. Greens are good. Bunkers are still bad. Fairways drying out in some areas, but still (at present decent lies) and good roll. Tee boxes need mowing. No rough to speak of. They have been having large tournaments every Friday during the whole month of May and more to come in June. I personally think, this is taking a huge toll on the golf conditions (too many and too many bad golfers). Customer service excellent all levels. If conditions continue to degrade, I will not be playing here much more during the summer.

Well after Elkins, I realized I was very close to T R and since I had missed the recent GK Guru play and reading the recent reviews, over I went. Check in was easy/fast. Got right out before a 4 some and played the front 9 fast, only seeing a 3 some on # 3 and they let me through on # 4. I think Johns review says all you need to know about the conditions. I, like John said, love the par 3's (including # 17). And I had no problem with #13 (LOL). The only issue I had today, was with the marshal. He saw me waiting on # 11 and asked how it was going? I told him that the 3 some in front was slow and their music (yes music) was annoying. And the 4 ladies in front of the 3 some, looked like any one of them might collapse at any moment? All he said was "OK have a good round" (yeah I would if you would do your job). Passed it on to the Pro shop, for what it was worth. Except for the marshal, customer service was excellent. This is a great layout, but you really need to play the right tees for your level of play, to get the maximum enjoyment. Recommended.

Played today ($17 birthday round) in a POP of 2 H. Got out early in the fog, so did not really get to see how nice this course is, until I was through 12 holes (great layout and setting IMO). I really enjoyed the last 3 holes coming in (fun par 3, long par 4 hitting from above the fairway and a nice finishing par 5). Having never played here before, I had this on my list to play. Maintenance was out ahead of me and had the tees (level/clean), fairways (good lies and roll), greens (great putting surface), bunkers (in top shape). The rough was about and inch tall and wet and sticky (why you should be in the fairway). I truly enjoyed this layout, with the variety of holes, elevations and water. If this was closer to my home, it would be a regular on my rotation. I certainly will be going back ASAP. Customer service was excellent at all levels. Highly recommended.

Played today, on my way back from CO/UT. I had not played here in over ten years and did not want to wait another 10. Got out early had a nice 4 H POP. This course will test every part of ones game, IMO. I never had a bad tee box all round (and I loved the elevated ones). Fairways were terrific (green/lush) and never had a bad lie and tremendous roll in them. Bunkers were just great to hit out of. Rough was not really a factor, IMO. Greens were fast and you did not want be above the hole. Customer service was excellent at all levels. This is one course, that one should experience for themselves, regardless of how well we can describe it in a review. I really believe, every golfer will see and experience something different for themselves, after playing here. The views, elevation changes, conditions, etc. make this a must play (if you can) IMO. Even if it is in Mesquite.

Played yesterday. Had not been here since 2014 (my how time flies). This course was designed by Arthur Hills and redone by Tom Lehman, over the last two years. They primarily took the 70 bunkers on the original design and reduced them to 35. I also noticed (at least it seemed that way) they removed a lot of rough, to open up the fairways. This is a public course, located inside a development and one needs to deal with some quirks by the members. They have the first tee time @ 9 AM (nothing like losing revenue) and those are taken by the men's club. They do not open the clubhouse until 8:30. But it pays to know the former GM and off I went at 8:30. The first thing I noticed was? Brand new golf carts, but no GPS? Second thing I found. There are virtually no yardage markers (well there are but you have to search for them)? So short of having your own GPS, you better be good with distance. I found the tee boxes to be level and clean. I found the fairways to have "good" coverage but dirt spots throughout and circles were I believe the original yardage makers were. You did get decent lies but not decent roll. Bunkers were in decent shape, given the time of the year, coming out of winter. Rough was almost an inch high and very hard to find a ball, let alone play out of it. Greens were in good shape (very large) though some better than others. A fun front 9 but mostly flat, with large undulating greens. The fun starts on # 10. You drive up about a mile from the clubhouse to reach it (seriously). 10, 11, 12, 13 are now known as "the lost horizon". An aptly named set of holes, like none other I have ever come across. Four virtually different holes (see pics - new ones to come). The final 5 holes are a decent set of holes as well. Overall, I was not very impressed with the customer service I received this time. Should I go back to the area, I would play Lakota Canyon several times, as well as River Valley Ranch, in Carbondale.

Played this afternoon. POP was going to be 3 H but the last 3 holes had howling winds from a storm come up and time to get off the course. To bad, as the 18th hole requires a tee shot over the Crystal River. I did however get to play # 8, a great par 3 that plays over the river (pic to follow). This course has beautiful views of Mt Sopris from almost everywhere. Several holes play along the river and there are numerous streams and water holes. Not to mention the many bunkers (which were very playable). Jay Morrish did the design and it is beautiful. A great mixture of holes to enjoy. The course is in great shape. Tee boxes clean and level. Fairways had great coverage and provided great lies and roll all round. Greens are large/undulating and put very fast (8-9). Totally enjoyed the round, even with the impending storm. Great customer service at all levels and a terrific 19th hole.
