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.
Played late morning on 6/6 with my uncle. Got a course layout description and some helpful advice from both guys in the pro shop. The course is very much a links style built into the low lying sandy dunes a couple hundred yards from the NW Oregon coast. Plenty of wispy grass grows between holes ready to make recovery shots difficult. Greens were firm and landing short was usually an option. Fairway grass coverage was very good and rough wasn't very bad until you hit the really long stuff. Greens were solid overall outside the first par 3 that appeared to have been re-sodded recently. The course had lots of character with many interesting angles and cants that will shoot your ball into... undesirable spots. Wind was up and blowing by about hole 6 making the last 12 a real adventure. It's the only 18 hole course in the area so prices are a little more expensive that you might expect but it's still a lot of fun and worth checking out if you're in the area.

Note: They are expanding/redoing the first fairway so a few tractors and graders were out.
Played late morning on 6/4 getting paired with two locals and one member. The course had just opened up from cart path only the previous week (a foot and a half of rain over average will cause those two month delays) talking with the starter. Some fairways had been given a sand topdressing so a few lies were on the beachy side. Other than that maintenance, the course was in very good and lush shape. Greens were pure and FAST. Above the hole lead to some very defensive putting. Tee boxes were in good shape although some back boxes were unplayable due to high grass (2-3 feet) in front of them. Rough was thick though somewhat patchy in spots. A bit of a gamble once you strayed from the short stuff. Bunkers had good coverage and plenty of sand. Very happy with the experience for the first leg of my vacation rounds.
Played 36 on an underpar voucher on 5/21. Overall, the course is in nice shape. Greens were far more receptive than Indian Canyons the day before but still released a bit. They also rolled on the slow side but were consistent. My entire group had a heck of a time getting putts to the hole all day. Fairways and rough were solid with the occasional thin patch. Greenside bunkers were great as were the tee boxes. This layout continues to grow on me the more I play here. Green complexes can be a little crazy, but with the speed of the greens this time around, it was quite fair.
Played early afternoon on 5/20 for a good deal on golfnow.
Everything was in really solid shape. Fairways and rough were both really good with the very occasional thin patch. Tee boxes were overall flat with good coverage. Greens were rolling well with medium speed but were rock hard. My buddy that I played with is a high spin player and the looks of confusion as his wedges were releasing 20 feet were high comedy. Keep that in mind if you head out here soon.
Finally got to play Sandpiper with the fellow Gurus on a breezy 5/15 late morning. Tee boxes were level with very little divot damage (Not too many irons hit from those back tee boxes...). Fairways were straight up impressive. Cut nice and tight, great lies pretty much everywhere. Rough was a good, sticky rye overseed and provided nice lies, especially greenside. I thought the greenside bunkers were great sand-wise. A couple were damp and as mpisarski said earlier, the front trap on 18 had standing water. I'm just so used to awful bunkers that this was leaps and bounds better than the norm even though they weren't perfectly maintained. Greens were firm and quite tricky to read. I was lucky to make a few nice putts but I never felt comfortable at any point during the day. Playing conditions were extremely difficult with the 15-20 mph onshore breeze blowing. Can't wait to be back.
