Played Saturday July 29. The course is in typical July shape. A bit dry and hard, but very playable. The greens are in very good shape however. San dimas offers excellent customer service - among the best in SoCal. The starter here IS the best. When the wind is blowing here, it's a fun test.

Played here on Nov 24. Conditions were very good, especially for a $65 greens fee. Tee boxes were B+, bordering A-. Fairways A...and please don't be thrown off by the dormancy and brown color. Lies were fine and the ball sits up niely. Bunkers A-...all of them were well raked and consistent. Angeles has reduced some of the ESA areas on the course and replaced that with wood chips in certain interior areas. It's a free drop off the wood chips. I think this is a good idea; Angeles is tough enough off the tee, and if your ball lands in the chips, it's easily findable. Greens were A-...rolling pretty smooth and abt 10-10.5. Service was very good, starting with the attendant just outside the cart barn, Jimmy. Overall, a well-conditioned course and well worth $65 midweek.

Played 7-20/Sun. San Dimas is in excellent shape, w the exception of a few tee boxes. This course will test every club in your bag and if you can't read greens, you will be better off playing elsewhere. The greens here are challenging. The layout is such that you cannot mindlessly pull driver off every tee - it pays to really think about strategy. The service here is efficient and very good. There's a lot of trouble left and right here, so if you're fairly crooked, this isn't your course.

Played Sun Jun 22. Course conditions on EO Nay are declining rapidly. There really isn't anything positive to say about any part of the course right now -- greens are patchy, bumpy, slow; looks like they haven't been cut in quite a while. Tee boxes are chewed up and uneven. The fairways generally are fine and playable, if quite shaggy in spots. Pace of play was agonizingly slow today. The beverage cart staff here is very good, however, so it wasn't all bad. It would be really interesting to see what would happen if American Golf were allowed to invest to some money into these tracks. The layouts are so good, and it's just a shame to never be able to see these courses groomed up.

Played today June 8 / mid-morning. The greens are rolling fairly quick at the moment; the back 9 greens are a bit smoother than the front. The course is in B to B+ shape, and at $45 to walk, it's a fair price. The fairways have some dry spots, and on some of the fairways, there are areas of bare dirt - it looks like they're replacing some areas w new sod. The tee boxes are fair and bunker sand is better than average. The course was in better shape than I expected. We saw a couple of groups drive over tee boxes and carts right up onto the green surrounds. It's too bad there are so many golfers who fail to show common sense and etiquette. Brookside's marshals are doing the best they can, but all of us golfers have a responsibility to demonstrate good behavior.

Played last Sat & Sun - May 31 - June 1, in the Simi City Championship. This tourney prob is the best run muni tourney in all of SoCal. Course conditions last week were excellent from tee to green. Greens were smooth, quick and receptive. This is a fun course, easy to walk, and the back 9 is a really peaceful walk. The staff here is nice and accommodating, and the tourney staff is excellent. Plenty of snacks, water, and marshals. Round 1 pace of play was 4hrs, 10min, and Round 2 was 4 hrs on the button. Range balls were new as well. Thanks to the Simi Hills staff for a nice weekend.

Played mid morning may 25. The facility was largely empty today so we were able to walk right on. The course is in B shape. A number of tee boxes are being repaired, and the fairways are pretty shaggy. Some of the fairways have bare patches of dirt. The greens are pretty soft right now, but they rolled smooth, albeit slowly. I think the conditions here will be B to B+ for the rest of the summer. Service was good today. The marshals are friendly,and they kept the water jugs full. We walked for $35, and that's a fair weekend prime time price. While conditions aren't superior, the views are, so please keep that in mind when reviewing this course.

Played Sat morn Apr 19. This a fun course to play. It's rustic and raw, and holes 3-12 sit among some nice countryside. It's a muni, so don't expect resort style grooming. But GRiver is a fun challenge and the wind can be fierce. They have grass range here, and the staff is friendly. Beware the green surrounds - it's kikuyu grass and it is very sticky. Some holes have trouble on both sides, so pick your tee lines carefully. Holes 13-18 are jammed into a smaller footprint, so be careful - lots of balls flying all directions.

Played early afternoon Sat Apr 12. This is one of my favorite courses in SoCal; just a fun layout and perfect for walking. The course is in B+ shape, but the greens have just been punched w large holes, and my guess is that they are probably 2-3 weeks away from being playable. Today's round was marred by a UCLA frat house tourney in front of us. The frat bros engaged in the worst behavior I've ever seen on a golf course. Most were drunk and driving up on greens, into bunkers, yelling and screaming all over the course -- it's one thing to have fun within your group, but when you start affecting others, you're simply being a jerk. These kids obviously have fathers and mothers...well, if these were your kids, you've failed as a parent. But as bad as these young punks behaved, I place the blame on American Golf. They didn't do anything about these punks. The poor golf course ambassadors tried talking to some of the "bros", but they had zero backup from the course's GM. So if you're American Golf's "exec" in charge of the Brookside facility, you should be ashamed. And if you're with the city of Pasadena, please send the cops the next time the "bros" schedule a tourney b/c arrests can be made, fines can be assessed, and we can help pay down some more Rose Bowl debt.

Played early a.m. on Sat Apr 12. The course is in B- condition. The greens are rolling fairly quick, but they're a bit bumpy. Turf conditions are very uneven; fairways are generally ok, but the rough and green surrounds are subpar - lots of clumpy grass and dirt patches. Tee boxes are just passable -- some are better than others, but none are in superior condition. The only really positive thing I can say about the course condition right now is that the trees appear to have been groomed recently. Architecturally, this course is one of the best in SoCal, but it's just a shame it gets so much play and so much neglect.

Playd today in the SCGA event 3/27/14. The course is in very, very good shape. Trees have been pruned, ponds cleaned up, bunkers have excellent sand quality, and fairways are tight (don't let the brown color throw you off - the turf is excellent for golf). This was my first time here in about 5 years, and I was very impressed. It's an excellent muni facility and the layout tests your tee ball accuracy. The greens rolled smooth and quick as well. I don't know if the conditions today were put in place strictly for the SCGA event, or if the course looks this good most of the time, but for today, the Hondo delivered.

Played Sunday Feb 16 mid morning. This was my first time playing here, so I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. Course conditions were A minus. Tee boxes were acceptable, and fairway turf was firm - which is what I prefer. The greens rolled very true and quick. Chipping areas were tight and tested your action. If you have poor short game technique, this course will expose you. Bunkers are punitive here, but if you're in them,you'll find the best sand quality of any SoCAL municipal. The course layout isn't anything special; it's basically a flat track with some artificial mounds. This is a second shot track - you won't be tested off the tee at all. You can miss a hundred yards in any direction. We walked for $58, which I felt was a bit pricy. I do have 2 complaints. First, customer service in the grill was atrocious. Worst I've ever experienced. It's as if the staff was laid off that morning. They were snarling and mean. Just totally unacceptable. Second, the bathrooms were filthy. I'll be back, but I won't frequent the grill and I'll hit the head before I leave the house.
