Played Tues Sept 18th at 707. I used my LA Senior card for the second time. Check in quick. I haven't been here for 2 years and forgot most of the holes. The scenery is great, in the hills and deer all over the place, 9 on the first hole alone. POP was not good at 445, we were following a 2 some and they clearly were in no hurry and thought they hit the ball farther than they did. We played the blues at 6145 yards, this made the par 5's 475 plus but made the par 3's a little long. The entire course slopes away from the mountain, fairways, and greens. Many of the holes are a bit tight to drive and a few of the greens had larger slopes than expected. Today the greens were just plain flooded. You left big foot print impressions just walking on them and our 3 some had 6 balls actually plug (half the ball down ) on the greens. Maybe they were getting ready to aerate. I don't know when the new concrete cart paths were put in, but they were very nice and welcome. Because of the scenery and a few challenging holes i would not mind coming back here soon.

Played Fri Sept 14th with our OFG group. Had a 7am tee time, easy check in, restaurant doesn't open for early golfers. Got out 10 minutes early and POP was 413, This is the second time I have played this course as it is a long drive for the people from O.C. I actually like the layout of this course, and wish we played it more often, in and out through houses but they never come into play, very wide fairways. Course was in good shape, greens a touch slow as a few were still recovering from being punched. Rough was very manicured and the ball really sat down in it. One thing I don't like is #1 and #10 are cart path only, really no reason for this and don't like starting a round having to take 4 clubs from the cart to hit your approach shot on the opening hole. Restaurant was open, but it is a little "stuffy" for my liking, french dip sandwich with fruit cup was good though.

Played Thurs sept 13th at 950. This is the first time I have played here so I looked at the pics here on Greenskeeper to look at some of the holes. Check in was fast and friendly . There are 3 9's here and was told by the starter that Oaks was just punched so we would be playing Creek and then Stone House. He also told us the greens were very fast. The course was in very good condition, and the greens were probably the fastest I have played on all year. The layout of Creek was nice, you could easily walk this. We then got to Stone House and it was a completely different course, of the 9 holes here you could only see the greens from the tee boxes on 2 holes and they were par 3's. Without ever playing this 9 before it was near impossible to know what you were doing, where to hit and what to do on most holes. If you want just a nice round play Creek and Oaks, if you feel you have to be challenged, then play Stone House. I am out there to enjoy myself, a 395 yard par 4 is challenging enough when your drives are 215, personally at my age I don't need or want a 395 yard par 4 where you don't know where to hit, can't see the green and has 100 plus feet of elevation change, or a par 3 listed at 167 on my watch, but it was up hill into a club and a have wind. If I go back, it is a long drive, I will avoid Stone House. BTW POP was terrible at 445, and then traffic all the way to Norco stunk.

Played Tues Sept 11th at 737, 2 seniors walking. This is a good course to walk. It is also a very good course to practice your short game, IE approach shots as the greens are extremely small. If you miss the greens the grass around them really grabs your wedge so it is penal, bump and run 7 irons work really well here. The price for senior walking is $15 and you can add lunch for $2 more and get a hot dog, chips and drink, or BLT and drink, so for $17 not bad, good practice round and you play golf, large bucket else where is $12 so good deal. Now about the course, DO NOT GO THERE AND EXPECT GOOSE CREEK CONDITIONS, this is a $15 practice round and the course shows it. Many tee boxes had crowns in the middle so finding a flat spot was tricky, fairways were green or brown grass with dirt mixed in, was in 2 bunkers and although it looked bad, when I hit it out there actually was enough sand to make a shot. The greens here are surprisingly good and fast. When you hit approach shots you can not aim for center mass of the green as the ball runs and the greens are so small you will be off the back. The greens really are nice here, very good roll and very very small. I like golf courses that are all nice and pretty, but I really like this place to work on my game and really enjoy the greens here. I will always come back.

Played Fri Sept 7th at 722, I have a card there so this was my free birthday round. Check in was very easy for the free round. We got out 8 minutes early. POP was 4 hours. The course was soaked. I think they were preparing for the hot weather sat and Sunday and maybe the extra play the South would get because the North is being punched. I have seen the course in better shape, especially the greens, alot of repaired and unrepaired ball marks created some bouncy putts. A portion of the right side of the fairway on 16 has been removed, they must be re sodding somewhere else and using the grass from there. It is a good 300 yards out so doesn't come into play, for most, lol. Well don't know if it was the free birthday round or that I turned 66, but the first 12 holes of this round stunk. Lol I started to do getter the last 6 holes. For me i really played good golf for my "65" year rounds, I hope it will carry over in my 66 year rounds. We had lunch and then after lunch my guys brought out cupcakes and the waitresses sang happy birthday to me, really nice touch, a little embarrassing lol

Played Tues Sept 4th at 707, got out early, a walking 4 some. Weather was great for walking as this is an easy walk. I have been playing here alot, alternating between classic and the players. I have seen the players in better condition, there were some tee boxes where you struggled to find a level spot. I had ok lies in the fairways and the rough was long and wet. Wasn't in any bunkers. Greens rolled well, were alot slower than Redhawk last week and took a few holes to adjust. POP was great at 326, but there was a threesome behind us on our butt the entire round. Still worth the drive from Norco.

Played Fri Aug 31st at 704 with our group. We haven't played here for 7 years as this is a long way for the people who live in Orange County. Check in was quick and friendly. I chatted a little with the starter about a few holes and the greens. I was very pleased with the conditions of the course, there were a few spots that were a little soggy, like the first tee box lol, but over all good. I didn't remember much about the course except that I didn't play well here 7 years ago. We played the whites and while the score card says there are short holes, alot of them are uphill. They are also very tight, you have to be straight here, just get the ball in play and forget about bombing it. The greens were a real experience, very fast and very tiered, one greens i had to putt up about a 5 foot elevation change, another the flag was 2 tiers above me, the holes were also placed where there was alot of break at the hole . This is a course that really takes course knowledge, tee shots, second shots and green shots are very important to be in the correct position. I must say I really did enjoy the course as it was very different from what we usually play and am really sorry it is such a drive for my friends in O.C. I live in Norco so for me it is not bad going down the 15, actually better than going to O.C. to play lol. I can't wait to play here again, although it will probably be another year before I can convince my friends to drive from OC

Played Tues Aug 28th at 733, check in great, had an hour so used the practice greens for putting and chipping, great facilities. We were 3 walking and while on the first tee a single rider joined us. I thought the course was in real good shape. No isses with tee boxes or fairways, was not in any bunkers. Greens were very soft, we would leave hugh divits with grass pocmarked around the balls. Unlike the last review we saw no fungus. We quicking found out the greens were much faster than the practice greem, rolled real nice. There was a slow 4 some in front of us so POP was not good at 412, for us. Now that is cooling down my friends will come out to I. E. more (instead of playing in O.C. ) and we will play here more often.

Played Fri Aug 24th at 707, good breakfast at 6 as usual. We knew it was going to be a slow day as we checked in at the starter and the 4 some in from of us were teed up on the green tees. Waited forever for the fairways to clear like they were going to hit it 300 yards, well first 2 hit and went way right with the second guy going over the fence into the parking lot. There is a hint if you play here, DO NOT park close to the fence on hole one, park towards the road even if you have to walk farther to the club house. So second 2 guys walk up to the white tees and both of them just drill it to the center of the fairway. Hum..... and it was slow at POP 420, we usually play under 4. About the course extremely over watered, rough is long and wet, fairways wet and soggy in places, bunkers a mixture but most mud and or hard sand, NO nice fluffy sand, greens were very soft and receptive allot of ball marks to repair and allot that were not repaired by the group or groups in front of us. Greens were not slow and rolled nice. We will come back Friday Sept 7th for my free birthday round.

Played Tues Aug 21at 7:07 good friendly breakfast at 6am, checked in early a got out early. We were a walking 3 some and they put a riding single with us POP was good at 3:30. Course was is good condition, no issues with the tee boxes and the fairways, was in 3 bunkers and no issues either. Greens were very slow, we played "players" last week and IMHO everything about players was just a little better, especially the greens, it was cloudy all morning so the walk was a little easier. Still like both courses here.

Played Fri Aug 17th with the OFG group at 7.07 I live in Norco so this was a drive for me. Got there way too early for breakfast someplace else which was way too expensive, (typical O. C.) Check in was quick $34 walking rate and this is an easy course to walk. I haven't played here since 2010 so i only remembered 1 or 2 holes. This is a short course with 3 par 4s at 250 yards, but there are plenty of holes to hit drivers on. Water comes into play on many holes. Like all the courses now there were spots that were over watered. The greens were receptive and rolled faster than expected, traps appeared to have good sand. You need to know the course since there are dog legs, water and sand in front of many greens. The guys I played with helped me with that until 18, (they were off to the left in the trees) I didn't know how far the water on the right extended and after a good drive to center fairway I took too much on and put it in the water for a double on the hole, (dang I needed a par for 79, which would have been my 1st sub 80) oh well. POP was good at 343. Service in the restaurant was not good and we ended up getting up and not eating.

Played Fri Aug 3rd at 704, had a good breakfast at 6am at a real good price and friendly service. Starter was friendly. I haven't played here in almost 2 years as I live in Norco and it is a bit of a drive for a shorter course. My friend told me he thought it was dried out, well I read the review here and agree with allot of it. The course was anything but dried out. Level spots on all tee boxes, fairways good grass and really soggy in spots, rought was on the longer side and wet, had to hunt for balls. The first green had all kind of bumps and tires tracks from the mower and freeked me out, i tought it would be slow and ran the ball way past and started with a 3 putt, after that I thought the greens were in good shape and roll nice and true, they rolled a littoe faster than expected. I ended up with 27 putts so I must had like them. POP was just under 4 hours, waited on the first few holes but good afterwards we were a 4 some walking. Nice course to walk and at $21 senior walking good price. The secret of this course is to be straight and since it is not that long stay away from clubs you hook, like fairway woods from the deck. I hope our group come back sooner than 2 years.
