Played the Babe 1/26 at 6:45am from the blue tees. We were lucky there was minimal wind on the front which disappeared completely after a few holes. The greens are the one highlight right now because the rest of the course isn't great. Tee boxes were mostly nice, a few weren't level. Fairways are completely hit or miss because there is a ton of long clumpy grass in many fairways trying to grow thru the bermuda. The fairways are the lowlight of the course right now. I was in one green side bunker which had nice sand, while my playing partners were in several others bunkers and moved stones away from their lies. This was only the second time I played the Babe, and it reminded me how much more I like the Ike.
Played 11/23 at 7:20 and saw the upgraded driving-range and construction on the new wedding/events hall. Before today, previously played here in March of 2018 and had pretty similar conditions. The tee boxes (blue) were almost all shaggy (couldn't mow after Wednesday night/Thursday morning rain?), fairways were decent, but spotty, greens were smooth and soft. The two bunkers I hit were okay. Hard to describe, but there was very inconsistent coverage in the rough, especially near the greens & bunkers. Slightly disappointing. We played here because we didn't feel like driving further out towards Beaumont from OC, but after two round in 2018, we'll wait for better conditions for a few years. Pace of play was not an issue....for being one of the supposed busiest days of the golf calendar, the course was noticeably quiet in the early morning during our warm up and when we made the turn.
Second course on my buddy's wedding trip found us playing Wailea Emerald on 11/1 at 7:20am in perfect 85 degree weather. Yes this course is more scenic compared to the Gold course a couple days prior, but we agreed this course isn't as great as the Gold was. Great tees, fairways, and sand here, and faster greens compared to the Gold. This course was much more target golf with multiple medium length par 4s which took driver out of our hands. If I ever go back to Maui, I'd chose the Gold Course to play again.
Epic trip to Hawaii for my buddy's wedding and we played Wailea Gold on 10/30 at 12:15pm. Check-in was easy and we teed off on #10 after a short warm up. Every tee box was perfect, the rough was consistent and lush, and the two traps I hit were in great shape. Even before it started sprinkling on #16, the greens were quite slow. They looked great, and appeared to be in great shape....just slow. This course is more of a shotmakers course, allowing for more freedom off the tee compared to the Emerald Course. Great views of the ocean on many holes.
I snuck out and played the back nine on Wednesday, 7/4 at 7:05am. Pro shop told me the GPS wasn't working in the carts (new carts arriving in two weeks), and then told me to use the sprinkler head yardages. Except, there isn't one yardage marker on the any of the sprinkler heads. Course is just okay. Multiple holes on the back nine look like each other. Fairways were okay. Rough is almost nonexistent. The edge of the one bunker I hit was fluffy, but then the middle of the same bunker was thin. Greens were slow. POP was 1:40 minutes after waiting for the two-some in front of me figured out they teed off on the wrong nine. I needed this reminder why I don't play here very often.
We got rained out last weekend, but got out yesterday morning knowing rain was in the forecast. Teed-off a few minutes ahead of our 7:03 time and POP was 4 hrs 35 mins, which I know is slow for how empty the course was (we did let one group play through on the front nine b/c one of our players was struggling). Greens were soft (light sprinkle fell whole round) and rolled pretty true. The semi-dormant fairways weren't great, very thin with clumpy, spots of new growth. Rough was patchy too and easy to hit out of. Every tee box was great, no trouble there. The downhill holes (#1, #10, #16, #18) allow for massive drives off the tee due to extra roll-out. No beverage cart (rain), but pro shop, starter, & marshal were all nice. We'll go back again in a few years.
A few days late with this review, but we played Goose on Friday 11/24 at 8:24am. Check-in is always a breeze here and the pro-shop guys are great. All grass range was perfect and not very busy that early in the morning. Teed-off on time and the first few fairways were just slightly long but we saw the mowers later in the round. Great coverage and visible difference between the lush rough. Tees were great, and the new tees being built on #3, 4, 8, 11, 17 are in different stages of readiness. Greens were great. I didn't hit any bunkers so I can't talk about those.... and actually had my best round ever at Goose. POP was right at 4 hours 30 minutes which is great for a busy day like Black Friday. We'll be back in 2018 for sure.
My group and I made our annual trip out to San Jacinto earlier today to play Soboba Springs and we were pretty disappointed. Three of us drive 50+ miles, and I drive 68 miles to play there. When I made the tee-time over the phone last Sunday, I was told the course was in good shape. We like to know the conditions before we drive all the way out there. By the time we reached the #1 green, it was apparent the green had fungus. It turned out 14 of the 18 greens had obvious fungus. #15 through #18 were better than the rest. The tees were level and in good shape. The fairways were decent at best. No one mentioned the temporary greens built into the middle of the #2 & #7 fairways. Those two temporary greens are NOT BEING USED YET. They will be used once most of the back nine is torn up to re-route multiple holes during construction of the new casino & hotel. Speaking of the construction, #13 has zero bail out area because of fencing, #14 is shortened and playing from one single temporary tee (no idea how far since there's no tee-sign). The two back tees on #15 will soon be a parking lot. All of the trees down the left side of #16 have been cut up and are waiting to be hauled away before the hole is re-routed. We talked to the pro shop attendant after the round to let him know we were disappointed in the conditions and for being lied to while booking the tee-time a week prior. He apologized and asked us to return after the casino opens Dec. '18. We like the course and we like the facilities there, but until construction is completed and only after we read better reviews, maybe we'll return.
Played Goose Sat. 6/24 at 8AM with my usual two buddies and found the course very close to what we normally expect. Staff was great upon check-in and starter was helpful getting us off and running. Tee boxes are all in great shape. Fairways are also in great shape. They must have been mowed a couple days ago because the clippings were visibly brown against the green fairways. Greens were smooth and semi fast. If other golfers would fix their ball-marks, we'd all be better off. Goose is almost always in very good to great shape. Great value, and we'll probably return again sometime in fall/winter.
Played here for the first time in 16 years on Sat. 3/25 with my dad at 6:52AM. New clubhouse is nice, and well appointed for a smaller facility. Check-in was straightforward and we were told we were playing with the group which had paid immediately before us. We showed up to the 1st tee ten minutes early and that twosome had already teed off. No starter/marshall making sure groups were pairing up. We watched as two twosomes and a threesome teed off before us and then we played as a twosome in exactly 3 hours.
The course has been open for almost two years now, and the greens are all still very hard. Even though they're rock hard, there are a lot of ball marks on the greens. I fixed many more than just my own. Management needs to tell their old-timer mens club players to take care of their course. On the bright side, I hit a handful of bunkers and all of them had good soft sand and they were in great shape. The fairways were in decent shape. Rough was inconsistent and very short. I'm quite surprised with how much rain has fallen recently and it was NOT noticeable here. Not lush at all.
Played Sunday, 2/19 for the SCGA One Day event, which was an 8AM shotgun. POP was just short of 5 hours, which was good for a shotgun. This was my second time playing DI and enjoyed it even more than last year's event. Every tee box was flat and lush green. Fairways were perfectly manicured and had drained remarkably well even with a bunch of rain in previous days before the event. Greens were perfectly smooth and had very few ball marks. My group had to search to try to find extra ones to repair. I was in two bunkers and both were a little crusty on the top, but fluffy sand underneath. If I'm looking for something to nitpick about....there are overhanding trees quite close to four tee boxes which could (and did) affect tee shots. Pro-shop and cart staff were super nice and hospitable and I hope to have the chance to play here again next year.
Played Firecliff yesterday 1/14 at 8:00am. POP was exactly 4 hrs. 15 min. which is great, although it felt slower b/c my group and I waited on many holes. Course is in great shape, even with all of the rain recently. The greens were a little soft, but were all smooth. Fairways were perfect, with minimal divots. Rough was consistent with great coverage. Some tees had some divots (even par 4s). Proshop staff and cart-guys were great and we had a good time. Would like to come back here and have another shot at those greens!
