On the way back to the SAC airport, we usually stop to play Teal as we enjoy the layout here. Played 8/18, had a 10:50 time with two other friends. Couldn’t find any online deals so $68 was our fee which is a bit steep for this course but we definitely wanted to play. Very nice guys in the club house and they got us out a few minutes early following a ladies 4 some.

I think this course is in really good condition right now. Bermuda fairways were good. Some brown/dead spots but not many. For the most part green with lots of roll out. Bunkers were in good shape with soft sand and could have easily plugged. The tee boxes were a bit shaggy but no big deal. The rough was also shaggy in a lot of areas.

Greens were in good shape and rolling nice and smooth however there were many un-repaired ball marks. I repaired at least 2-3 fresh divots in addition to my own on just about every green. Clearly still an ongoing problem as they have a basket of divot tools on the #10 green encouraging golfers to take and use them.

Pace of play was a bit slower than usual, about 4:30. The ladies in front us kept up but the group ahead of them did not. I thoroughly enjoy playing here. Nice layout completely enclosed and bordered by large trees through the greens. Pretty scenic really. Right next to the SAC airport, we usually hear the jets but not on this day. Peaceful on this day. They’re scheduled to aerate the greens at the end of this month but definitely recommend and worth a stop.

Played Bidwell with a group of college friends on 8/16 and noticed I played/reviewed it about 2 years ago. Not much to add from my last review except for a couple of surprises. The fairways were really nice – bermuda lush. Bunkers were great with good, firm sand.

The greens however were just aerated and sanded beginning on 8/12. They made no mention of this when we made the time which was pretty disappointing. As such, they were in repair and not puttable and had we known, we would have played elsewhere. There were still a lot of players which was surprising.

Secondly, the marshall they had out there was a bit weird. When we got to the 3rd tee box, she drove up to us and asked if we were as bad as the group in front of us. What? I mentioned to her that the group in front of us were very good friends of ours and they were not playing slow at all. She backed off her comments. Then when we got to the 16th hole par 3, she reminded us that the green was open. Yes, we see that. She was bizarre and later found she was just hired. Well, good luck.

Despite it all, we had fun but a lot crap going on here on this day. Get it together Bidwell.

Up visiting some old friends in No. Calif and played River Oaks on 8/14. We last played RO about 4 year ago and liked it so wanted to give it another try. Took advantage of Golf Moose, 2 for $49 getting an 11:15 tee time and it turned out to be one of the hottest days of the year. We were prepared though with plenty of water and energy food and as the day progressed, we were literally the only ones on the course.

I was impressed with the conditions. The fairways were in really nice condition and despite all of the heat, very few brown spots. The rough was cut just right. Bunkers were a mix of sand and dirt but playing just fine.

The greens were really nice and smooth but rolling on the slow side for some reason. They were damp and therefore holding shots but they still rolled true.

I enjoyed playing here. Relatively flat, I like the layout although we had to figure out where the next box was on some of the holes. The map on the back of the scorecard helped. Check in was easy enough but the folks in the restaurant weren’t very friendly. Peaceful and serene, still very much worth the fee and recommend if you’re ever passing through East Nicolaus, CA, it’s worth the stop.

Once again, up visiting family in the East Bay and as always, stopping in to play Boundary. Out early on 8/1, playing solo finishing in about 3 hours. Noticed that Boundary was hosting the Walnut Creek Open for the Golden State Tour. This day was the final round with 18 players and it was a real treat to watch these young professionals smack it. The leader’s scores were in the mid 60’s. Talented.

As such, you might expect the course was in great condition. It was! Fairways were cut down allowing for some really nice lies. The rough was not real thick but was green and lush. Bunkers were as good as I have ever seen at any course.

The greens were very fast which made them very tricky, particularly on the greens that had some undulations. Noticed that the maintenance crews were rolling the greens and their work was paying off. Amazing! Some greens were browning out in some areas and there were many ball marks but it did not affect the roll.

This course is usually in good condition most times but clearly, I caught it at a great time. Truly exceptional. The only down side was the goose droppings which was more prominent on holes/greens where there was water. Regardless, definitely recommend. The course is somewhat hilly with a few doglegs but is a fun and challenging layout for sure.

Got out early on 7/30 at MM with a good friend trying to beat the heat. Out as 2, we followed a very slow 4 some that let us play through on hole #5. Pretty much clear sailing from that point and finished in about 3.5 hours.

The course remains in good shape from the last time I played it a few months ago. Fairways are all pretty much kikuyu but cut down so we got really nice lies. Although lush and green, the rough was way too thick. We spent a lot of time looking for balls just off the fairway. They were cutting it down as we were playing but the mowers were following us, not ahead of us. Bunkers are still hit and miss. One I was in was rock hard and another one I was in was great with firm sand.

The greens still are the hit here as they are in great shape. Not many undulations but most greens seem to break from front to back. Holding shots and rolling very nicely and true. You hit it there, it went there.

A bit hilly particularly on the back but the course offers a good challenge. The folks inside the clubhouse and the restaurant are always great and on a clear day, you can get some real nice views of the San Gabriel mountains. Definitely recommend playing.

I also played with GK Cup Final outing held at Oak Creek. On a rather warm and humid day, teed it up with cthuyen, caligolfer1031 and nicksquire. Have never played Oak Creek and was really looking forward to it. I wasn’t disappointed and thoroughly enjoyed the course. This is one of the nicest courses I have played in some time. I kept asking my playing partner, are we really in Irvine? Didn’t feel like it. It looked more like the desert. Great layout.

The fairways were great. Not super, lush Bermuda but firm and good enough to get great lies. I thought most of the fairways were generous. Some fairways were tricky. Best to hit it in the center of the fairway as the terrain roles to the side and could find its way bouncing into the rough or fairway bunker. I hit a drive down the middle but could not find my ball. It must have rolled into thick rough but I never found it. The rough was thick but that’s the way Bermuda rough is. Bunkers were in good shape but am not used to hitting out of soft, fluffy sand. I am used to firm sand or even hard pan – lol!

Greens were great. Not super quick but rolled true and held good shots.

Check in was easy enough. Nice young man checking us in and the starter out on the course called us to the tee right on time. And the guys in the restaurant were great. I was left with the impression that they stayed to wait on us. Very nice. Can’t say enough good things about Oak Creek and would love to play it again but $185 to play is a hefty price tag. Will look for the deals.

Decided to drive over to Prado and walk out as a single. Got to the course and it was pretty much empty. I am sure the heat had something to do with this as it was pretty warm. Got right out playing solo around 11:00 am. Caught up with a pretty slow 3 some at #9 tee and was able to play through them so pace of play was just about 3 hours.

Pretty much agree with Stickboy’s previous review. The course is in good shape. Although heavy kikuyu fairways, they were cut down so the lies were excellent. The rough was thick but playable. Going further through the rough though you’re on dried old weeds and hardpan not to mention large trees. Bunkers are really not very good. Not much sand in them, just hard dirt.

The greens are excellent however. Not fast and a little bumpy in spots but for the most part, they rolled very true.

I enjoy playing here even though the course is rough around the edges. I don’t expect a whole lot when I play here but I do get to play a course that has a nice layout and walking for $23 just ain’t bad! It is also challenging from the blues, playing at a about 6800 yards. Real nice folks in the clubhouse and in the snack shop as well. I am up for playing here again.

Played Wilson earlier this week with our regular group and was excited about playing even though the commute might be over an hour. Had a 7:36 tee time and as it turned out, only took about 45 minutes to get there.

The last time I was here, I was pretty disappointed with the course conditions, particularly the rough which was pretty bad. This round was totally different and I was impressed. Got out right on time and finished just over 4 hours. The course however is in great shape. What a difference. The fairways were lush and cut down. Tee boxes weren’t great but that’s ok. The rough was cut down and in great shape. No more large, uncut weeds. The bunkers were in good shape as well.

The greens were rolling very nicely. Looks like some had some small aeration holes but it didn’t affect performance.

Wilson is now as nice as any muni or public facility I have played which is something I could never say before. The only downside was the restaurant. Apparently, it is going through refurbishment. They have a temporary restaurant area which is not air conditioned so it wasn’t pleasant to sit in there on a rather warm day.

Regardless, highly recommend and kudos to LA City for getting it together.

Played Mt. Woodson for the first time with other Guru’s and was lucky to be paired with fellow GK’ers Tim and Brady. Fun guys to play with and a big thank you to these two guys for helping me through the layout, advising me on where to hit it. Would have been hurting without em as course knowledge is really a must here.

But the course is as nice as they come. Interesting, hilly and fun layout that meanders through the hills and although just over 5700 yards, it’s not easy. Target golf meaning you can keep the driver in the bag on quite a few holes. Fairways were in great condition. In fact one hole, #13 the fairway seemed near perfect all the way through the green. Lies were all great. The rough was a bit thick but that was expected. Tee boxes could use some work but nothing really bad. Was not in any bunkers but they looked like they were in good shape.

The greens were really nice as well. Rolled very nice at about medium pace but held all shots.

Cute little grill with good food and I guess that would be my only complaint. The grill is right next to the #10 tee box and I noticed many groups stop to load up with food when they make the turn. Understandable to get a bite to eat but I can see that really slowing down play. I had a lot of fun out there and am looking forward to the next time I am out there. I have already talked this place up with a couple of friends and giving it some nice props.

Teed it up with fellow GK’ers Ron, Steve and Jerry and as usual, had a good time. I always liked playing Eagle Glen as the layout is fun and challenging. It was cloudy and cool on this day which I thought took away from the beauty of this course. Near the end of our round the sun came out and you can see the course is really greening up. The last time I played here, late last summer, it was pretty browned out. Not the case today. Although not super lush, it is starting to look good.

Always love playing Bermuda fairways and these are in good shape. Not a lot of cushion under the ball but not hardpan either. Tee boxes were just so so. Decent coverage but not always level. There really wasn’t much rough to speak of and if you strayed away from the fairways near the cart path, you were in hard pan or dirt. Was only in one bunker and it was in very condition.

The greens rolled nicely but were pretty hard and on the slow side. As slow as I have ever seen them. Usually, they are much faster.

The setting for this course is spectacular. There are some beautiful views from the high elevations. Always fun and challenging, you can’t spray the driver or you will be in the unplayable weeds. And the restaurant is great as well. Got a huge breakfast for $8. Recommend and looking forward to the next time out here.

I last played AH about 3 months and said then that I would not likely play for some time. So I lied! My son in law and his brother, took me out to play here on Father’s day. The guys in the clubhouse and the starter are great and made for a nice start. The starter on the #1 tee had things well organized for a what was going to be a super busy day and we went off on time at 7:20.

The course is in nice shape right now and one could not complain about the conditions. Agree with the last 2 reviews. Fairways are lush and green. Didn’t have a bad lie. The rough was also lush and cut down just right. Bunkers are also in very good condition.

The greens are rolling good for the most part but bumpy on certain areas. You can see the whiteish flower beginning to grow on the poa annua and although a little bumpy, I still give them a good rating.

The layout is not one of my favs. It is not a long course but you cannot be spraying the driver on many holes. We finished in a little more than 4.5 hours. Could have been faster but waited on just about every hole and the group behind us fell way back, two holes behind. That’s the knock on this course, pace of play. Some of the fairways are narrow and trees come into play not to mention guys spending time looking for lost balls. It is what it is and unless you can get out real early, don’t expect a fast round.

Played Coyote Hills with my monthly neighborhood group on 6/11. Had a 10:20 tee time on a rather warm day but we had plenty of water and snacks to make it through. This is only my third time playing here and the other two times were scramble tournaments so this is the first time playing my own ball throughout.

Check-in was a little hassle. They were training a new person who was struggling to get the green fee correct. She charged me the premium rate of $75. I mentioned I was a senior and she had to correct the computer again. She charged me $56 where I mentioned I thought the senior rate was $50. No response so the more seasoned starter indicated that the $56 rate includes lunch and a drink. Wasn’t looking to have lunch after but didn’t want to go through this check-in hassle any further so I just paid it and walked on.

The course is in good condition with a couple of flaws. The fairways looked like many have been aerated a while ago but haven’t fully recovered. Not terrible but pretty thin so not at their best. I imagine they will be better in the upcoming months. Bunkers were hit and miss. One was perfect and yet another I was in was rock hard. The rough was in good shape and cut just about right.

The greens are excellent. Smooth, rolling fast, holding shots and in some cases provided back spin if it well. Very nice.

Despite the heat, I enjoyed playing here. Finished in in just under 4 hours. The cart associate came by a couple times so we were not without refreshments. A pretty hilly course with many elevation changes from the tee boxes. It plays relatively short and there are a few holes that do not require hitting a driver. We played it from the blues which is only around 5,600 yards but just because it’s a bit short doesn’t make it easy. Target golf on some holes so if do hit driver, don’t spray it. Recommend and looking forward to the next time.
