Went out around 4pm on Sunday 4/2/17. 1st tee was pretty busy and slow groups were heading out. Starter Ken, great guy, always a pleasure, saw a gap over at 8 and 9, so he sent two of us out to 10th teebox. Very good move. We played the back in about 2.25 hrs, so it wasn't too bad, then we decided to go ahead and get in as many holes as possible on the front. My playing partner, Steve, and I turned it on, no one in front of us. We burned it up on the front nine and skipped 7 and 8, so not too bad, got in 16 holes. We played the front in 45 mins, it was great. Good job, Steve.

Conditions are above average, I've seen them better, but I've seen them worse. Teeboxes were fine all around except the par 3's, they were pretty beat up on the par 3's. But otherwise very good condition, they had the blues set way back, and they were good. Greens putted pretty smooth. late in the day with a lot of footprints, but most rolled out well. A few of them were pretty hard and didn't hold the shot, but most were receptive. Fairways were darn near perfect. Nicely mown and all divots had been repaired with sand, nice job people. Didn't find a sand trap, but they looked pretty good. Rough wasn't too penal, at all.

Always a great deal at $23 to walk twilight for a weekend. Almosts finished. Sundays are usually the best day to try and sneak out a walk on. Always enjoy myself out there, views are awesome and it's an easy walk.
Had a fun day at the executive course with some par 4s mixed in. Played with fellow gker Bryjohnhay and some other long time friends, truly a great day playing with guys you've known for almost 30yrs.

Haven't played here in like 25 years and I enjoyed it. Course gives you a chance to hit just about every club in your bag and you need to be hitting good shots to have any chance to score here. Plenty of areas to get in trouble with water and OB, did it a few times myself.

Greens were definitely the highlight. They were very nice, in great shape, soft and receptive, putted smooth, very fast downhill, look out! Tee boxes were a mixed bag, some were bad others were good, always found a decent spot to put the peg in the ground. Found a couple of bunkers, they weren't that great, but with so much rain recently, I'll give them a pass. The fairways that were in play were in decent shape, not perfect, but usually found good lies. Rough around the greens could be penalizing at times. All things considered, had a good time and will be back. Good place to bring the wife. POP was not an issue, moved right along. Cart girl came around twice. Cart guys and proshop guys were all great, great communication and orderly. Go ahead and get out there, you'll enjoy it every once in a while.
Sorry for the late review, got out on Sunday Feb 26th. had a break in the rain and thought it would be a good chance to get out to my local course. Conditions are better than average, especially after all the rain we have been having. Greens were very nice, held shots very well and putted remarkably smooth for being so soft. Tee boxes were just ok, probably the lowlight of the course right now. Little patchy with quite a few divot marks on the par 3s. Fairways were excellent! never a bad lie. They drain well here and were soft with very little roll, but they were lush with not much divot damage. Found one trap and it was surprisingly soft, even after the rains. They should remain in good shape for awhile, recent sand seems to have been added. POP was way above average for this place, the weather scared quite a few people away, it was windy, rainy and cold. POP was at 4 hrs, which is great for Nado.

Overall, always recommend if you can get out. Resident Sunday rate is now $40 to walk and well worth it.
Been awhile since I've been out to Eagle Crest. Got deal on their website for Sunday, super bowl sunday, $43 and included a hot dog and a beer. Good deal for a Sunday. Teed off at 9:40, finished in 4.5 hrs. We didn't wait for anyone, but the buddies I played with that day are still working on their games and they are a little on the slow side, no biggie, pace was fine for me.

The course is in ok shape, very playable. They've done a lot of work and took out some bunkers, so those areas are a work in progress. Greens were good, definitely the highlight of the course. Ran medium speed, but were smooth and very receptive. Lots of recent rain probably made them soft. Teeboxes were just fine, pretty level. They had the tips closed and moved the blues up to where the whites normally would be. The rough was either non existent, they did some turf reduction last year, or it was brutal long and thick. Fairways were in pretty good shape at the proper landing areas. Bunkers were awful, but we've had so much rain, it's tough to keep up.

All things considered, I'd go ahead and get out there, especially with a good deal. They seem to be working on the course and hopefully that will continue, should be getting in better shape within the next few weeks. Oh, beware, the poison oak and ivy are thriving from the recent rains, stay out of the environmental stuff.
Played Sunday 1/15, sorry for the late review. I really like this course. paid $59 through their website, felt it was fairly priced for peak season on a MLK weekend Sunday. Overall, course is in good to very good condition. Teeboxes were in pretty good shape, always level and fairly lush. some divot damage, but overall can't complain. Fairways were very nice, always had a great lie. Rough wasn't too penal, but there were a few thick spots, if you were way off the fairway, you were in dormant bermuda. Bunkers were in pretty good shape, especially due to a lot of recent rain. Greens were a little on the firm side and they had a "grainy" look to them, like they were a bald guy with thinning hair, but they putted pretty well and held their line, just didn't look perfect.

Overall, I like this course. Lots of cool water features and some tough holes. Good value for this time of year, as well.
Great round Saturday, got a smoking deal for $35 on golfnow. Teed off at 12:45 and barely finished. POP was very slow on the front but moved along on the back, MLK weekend, so there were a lot of people out there

Course is in pretty great shape. Teeboxes were perfect, level and mowed to perfection. Fairways were excellent, always had a good lie. Rough was not too penal, they just let the bermuda go dormant and it was fluffy. Greens were very good, held shots very well. Quite a few ball marks, I fixed 3-5 of them every green, c'mon people, fix your fricken ball marks! Sand traps were pretty awful, seriously affected the rating. I found 2 and they were pretty much hardpan, but that was from the rains, I'm sure. It rained quite a bit the last few days, but the course drained very well. If you didn't find a bunker, the course would be rated a solid 8.5 to 9.

Overall, I'd get on out there, especially if you can find the great deal like I did. The layout is great, lots of water and some elevation changes. Houses are prevalent, but they are set back from most of the fairways. It's a great track.
You know what? Balboa is a great course. Great layout and I think it may be underrated. I wish it was in a little better shape, but we got hammered with rain yesterday, so most everything was soaked and they couldn't mow the greens this morning. Cart path only, but I was walking, everyone should walk this course, great workout.

Just a beautiful day, had a great time. I really need to play here more often. Customer service was great, they moved the check in to the pro shop and the people are always nice. I walked on as a single, got out in about half hr. on a Saturday, not bad. $40 resident rate to walk, can't complain. POP was 4.5 hrs, pretty slow, waited a lot, but probably due to cart path only. POP wasn't great, but it was consistent, so just enjoyed the views and the walk and dealt with it.

Course was in ok shape, everything soggy from the rain. Greens were very bumpy, probably because they couldn't mow them from the rain. Had to hit em a little firm to make sure they held the line. Fairways also soggy, but nice and green, usually had great lies in the fairway. Rough was spotty, not thick, but had bare spots and high spots, tough to hit from. Didn't find a bunker, but most of them were filled with water. Tee boxes were good, they had the blues set all the way back, so that was nice.

I'd say get on out there, it's only gonna be better in the next few weeks when it dries out and get your walking shoes on. We all need to walk more courses, wish they were all walking friendly.

Last round of the year, so Merry Christmas to all my fellow Gkers, love all you guys and gals!
Had a fun time. greens were great, fairways were decent. Teeboxes were the worst of the bunch, but still were level and could find a decent spot to tee it up.

Always enjoy coming out to my local course, got right out as a single cuz of football sunday and beat the twilight crowd. POP was around 4.5 hrs, not bad for Nado.

Get on out there, conditions are good and are getting better.
Played on Monday 11/15 and had a very good time. Course is in about as good shape as I've ever seen it. Greens were very good, on the verge of great. Fairways were also darn good, never had a poor lie, they were a little thin, but played just great. Teeboxes were a little chewed up, but generally found good spots to place the peg. Rough was not too penal. Great customer service, as usual. About the only thing that was poor were the sand traps, they were pretty hard and rocky. Get out there and enjoy it, paid $25 through their website and well worth it.
Played on Sunday Oct. 9th. Had a good time although I've seen the course in better shape, but I've seen it worse, as well. I think they are trying to bring it back to where it used to be back in the day.

Greens were hit and miss. Some of them were just awful, especially around the edges. Others were ok. They all held shots well, but they were pretty bumpy. Teeboxes were also a mixed bag, they had the blacks up with the blues, maybe the Golds were good, but I was too hungover to play the tips. Lots of bare spots on the teeboxes. Bunkers were just ok. I found a fairway bunker and it was decent. Fairways were probably the highlight. They were all pretty darn good. Always had good lies. POP not a factor, pretty empty out there cuz it was warm and Sunday, guys watching the Chargers lose again.

I'd say get out there if you can get a decent deal. We played twilight on a Sunday for $40, so that's not bad.

Oh forgot to mention, temp green on #7 BEWARE. No mention of it anywhere, no sign, nothing. My buddy clocks his drive and then smashes a 3 wood onto the normal green, we couldn't tell that there was a temp green about 40 yards short of the real green. We were pretty pissed.
Played on Saturday oct. 8th. Had a great time, love this course and the layout. The condition is a little worse than normal right now. Greens are trying to recover from the recent work. I'd say 2 more weeks and they will be fine. They held shots well, but were a little bumpy and unpredictable. Teeboxes need quite a bit of work, they aren't in the nicest shape, but usually level and could find a decent place to put your tee. Fairways were about average. I've seen them in better shape here in the past, but they were playable. Rough not too penal today. I've seen it a lot higher. Bunkers were in pretty sad shape, they were mostly rock hard. I was only in one, but my buddies were also complaining.

All and all, still had a fun time and conditions were definitely playable, Customer service was great. Pro shop guy is nice and Steve the starter is always hilarious. Wait a couple of weeks and everything should be in better shape.
Did the stay and play Sunday and Monday. When I called to book the room a couple of weeks ago, the lady on the phone taking my reservation gave me some pretty bad starting times, like 11am both days, no way we were going to get 36 holes in with those times. She said call back about 6 days before we arrive and talk to the pro shop, the members cancel all the time. So I did, and got a 9:40 am on Sunday and 8:30 on Monday, so we played 36 each day.

Love this place. Teeboxes were ok, they were all nice and level, but a couple of them were chewed up, most of them were nice, though. Fairways were pretty nice! They didn't look perfect, but I always had good lies. Bunkers were great. The top of the sand was kinda crusty, but perfectly fluffy underneath, they played real well. Greens were pretty darn good, held shots very well, Sunday was a little bumpy at the end, but then they mowed and rolled them on Monday and they were very true. Customer service was great. Bartenders in the bar were just awesome, super friendly, had dinner at the bar on Sunday night and then had dinner there again on Monday after the round, great service. Thanks to the bartenders.

Cant wait to go back, unreal deal, 179$ for two people with a great room on number 10 teebox and unlimited golf for two days, oh yeah, baby. Get out there and do it.
