Played today walking up as a single around 10:30. Had called yesterday to get an idea of how crowded the tee sheet was going to be (busy this morning, open after 10).
Weather was partly cloudy with a 10-15mph wind on the front 9 turning into a 30mph wind on the back 9. Course was in good shape. Fairways lush with good coverage. Rough consistent and not too penal. Tee boxes flat with limited divot damage outside the shorter par 3s. Bunkers pretty good with soft, heavy sand. Greens had lots of Poa buds but were somehow consistent, just on the slow side. After years of playing here I find the fairways, rough, bunkers, and tee boxes don't change much through the year so you pretty much know what you're going to get. Greens have a bit more variance from round to round and were surprisingly receptive this time around. POP was right around 4.5 hrs, slowing down once I hit a few groups on the back 9 and the wind started to really get up.
Played this afternoon; walked up at 1:25 and was first off twilight at 2:00 on resident rates (Boy, does it feel good to say that). The South is in very good shape. Not much has changed since Rat-Patrol was last here. I would say the green are in better shape than his review (but afternoon Poa is always going to be bumpy) but all else remains the same. Good tee boxes, solid bunkers and very good fairways. POP was a solid 4:30 and saw the beverage cart quite a few times. Amazing for resident rates, overpriced for out of towners (especially on weekends). Awesome first experience here and looking forward to the next bout against the South.
Played Sunday 2/11 @ 11:00 with dconnally, Rat-Patrol and rgm2525. Like Rat said, course was in fine shape apart from a couple of greens. Fairways were very firm giving plenty of roll but a very consistent surface. Greens were inconsistent to start with but really evened out by the time we hit about hole 6. I was in one fairway bunker that could be best described as "fluffy." Tee boxes were solid and rough wasn't overly penal. In fact, a bit more rough would save a few balls rolling into the hazards. POP was right around 5 hours and service was good throughout the day. I think we saw the beverage cart 3-4 times. Like the layout even if it keeps kicking my butt.
First off at twilight last Sunday (Jan 21st) to finally check San Clemente off the list. Always heard good things and I'm here to report... that they are all pretty much spot on. Everything was a notch above what you'd expect from a municipal course and in same cases at least two notches above. fairways were excellent, tee boxes and rough were both what I would call solid. Greens were firm and ran forever until you putted away from the ocean then they went NOWHERE. Pretty amazing. I loved the layout and the POP was just over 4 hours for $32. What is not to like?!
Will be back and hopefully sooner rather than later.
Had my first Rams Hill experience with the Gurus on 1/7. Everything about the course was well above average. Great coverage on the fairways and rough, good tee boxes (some overly long but they were probably getting a haircut soon), and great, receptive greens as Keith noted. They definitely looked faster than they were and my entire group left more than our fair share of putts short. Bunkers had lots of soft sand, which was great around the greens but made fairway bunkers a pain to play from. I really enjoyed the layout which reminded me more of Tucson golf than anything in Palm Springs, not something I was expecting. Looking forward to coming back!
Played today as a walk-on getting off at 8:40. Used a Costco coupon for the "free" round and paid an additional $15 for weekend morning priority. Also they charge a cart free at all times before noon on weekends which is stupid (I walked anyway).

Was a little damp in the morning but quickly warmed up to a beautiful day. Everything is solid but not spectacular. Greens were a but bumpy with lots of divot damage. They sped up markedly once things started heating up. Fairways were good and very green with solid coverage everywhere. Rough was often long and wet. Not a lot of thin lies but some fluffy dirt patches were present. Bunkers looked pretty typical with a good layer of dune sand. Tee boxes okay to good all around for the black markers. They have seed available on the par 3s to fill things up. POP was right around 5 hours which is not a shock for Thanksgiving weekend. Not beverage cart was driving around that I could see. Normal rack rate is too much for area and conditions, especially if they're throwing a mandatory cart fee on top of normal greens fees (Seriously? This is your business practice?) Still a solid track with good conditions, just overpriced.
This place is growing on me. The layout demands attention, especially off the tee, to avoid the numerous bunkers and hazards awaiting you at the landing area. Conditioning was very similar to Eagle Falls in my previous review where the fairways and rough were very solid, especially for the desert in September, with greens lagging behind slightly. The greens were playing medium slow (well, except the front right pin on #11) with a few bumps from still faintly visible aeration marks. Bunkers were very good and the rough was consistent despite not being particularly penal. The beverage cart was roaming and we saw it MANY times during the round.
Very much recommended.
Not much to add from Nick's previous review. The course was in very fine shape considering it is September in the Coachella Valley. Fairways and rough were really quite good. Greens maybe a step behind the fairways, rolling medium slow but consistent. Bunkers were excellent and you will find them on this design. As a 3-some we finished in about 3:45 as some wind was kicking up as we finished. Solid layout and very much recommended.
Played 9/8 starting a little before 10am with my club.

If felt and looked like lots of water had been put on the course due to the heat from the previous week. Greens good for the most part but some definitely showed some heat stress (#1 and #5 come to mind). Fairways a bit on the soft side so not a ton of roll-out. Rough was typical Goose, not very penalizing. Wasn't in a bunker but they looked very solid. Tee boxes very good apart from some par 3 divots. POP was a nice 4:10. Don't expect perfection on the greens right now until they recover from they sun beating they took last weekend.
Paired with Nickesquire and dconnally as part of the GK guru outing on the morning of 8/18. Echoing statements by the other gurus, an extremely pleasant surprise hidden in the hills of Camp Pendleton. Everything was far above average with the greens and bunkers being the highlight of the show. All(or most) of the traps have been recently renovated and filled with new sand. Greens rolled extremely well at med-fast speed on flat putts with not a lot of divot damage. Fairways had great kikuyu coverage as did much of the rough. The areas around the newly renovated bunkers was nearly all bermuda so that made things a little interesting at times. Tee boxes were good even with a few being on the tilted side. Fun course to play and a definite must to have in the rotation if you live in south OC/ north SD.
Played morning of 7/27 with the Guru's from the blues on the Presidio/Mission combo.

Being my first time here I didn't really know what to expect other than "Flattish and next to a river." Flattish might not do it quite enough justice as the Robinsons, Ted were able to incorporate a bit of undulation on an overall very flat property. The river comes into play on several holes in addition to several water features sprinkled in. All in all it's a more inspired design than I'm used to from a Robinson course (a good thing).

Conditioning-wise, the greens are definitely the star and would even be more so if people learned to fix ball marks. I spent lots of time gardening on the greens, let's leave it at that. Teeing grounds were solid, usually level, and maybe a hair long on those more dominated by kikuyu. Fairways were typically okay despite the patches of different grasses everywhere. Several wet spots did show up from time to time and they are working on re-sodding portions of Mission #3. Rough was pretty decent, especially the kikuyu areas. POP was a solid 4 hr 10 min and the service all around was very good.
The dew-sweeper ahead of a foursome on Sunday 6/11, tee off temp of 48 degrees. Alone on one of the prettiest pieces of golfing property this side of the British Isles. I don't have adequate words to describe this place. I'll just say it was an amazing experience with some of the best greens I've ever played.
