Played Twilight today. $20.50 to walk versus their 11-3 deal of $27 to ride + 2 drinks.

Greens rolled well and have healed. Some of the holes are still healing but rolling well with medium to fast speed. They hold their lines well but afternoon sun does affect bumpiness of the greens. Fairways all had good coverage. Rough is mix of thick to sparse, but hey, it's rough and it can be penal at times. Some of the tee boxes are flatish and some are not, but certainly playable.

Pace of play for 18 was 3 1/2 hours, not bad for a consistently crowded course. Since the greens are rolling true ... expect them to get better. Recommended.

Played Monday and Friday last week.

Greens were punched with smaller tines; no sand. Greens were receptive but did not hole their line with putts. You could see your ball bounce all over the place with a decent struck putt. Not fun especially with makeable 6-5 footers. Fairways had good coverage. Rough was thick and very penal. Bunkers (did not hit any of them) were hard packed -- light layer of gravel/sand with hard base underneath. Tee boxes were flat for the most part.

Pace of play slow for Harbor. Finished 9 holes in 2 1/2 hours. Still a great way to nip that golf bug for $17 to play during the day and $11 for twilight.

Played today and took advantage of GK's new Coupon for Los Amigos. Been a while since I played here and conditions are much improved from years bygone.

Facility looks clean. Check in was efficient and friendly. Course was not busy so they sent me out and I told the starter that I would pick up my lunch at the turn which was ready for me when I walked in.

Greens may look OK but did roll predictably. Greens were smooth with medium speed. Green to green consistency was a little different from green to green but still somewhat easy to read putts just had a little difficulty getting the speed down. Fairways were lush. Rough was thick to thin which is par for this course at this time of the year. Tee Boxes flat. Bunkers were well stocked with sand and great for blasting shots out of the bunker -- even in the fairway.

POP was OK. I was a single and caught up to the twosome ahead by the 2/3rd hole. Folks just so that you know or at least how I was taught, groups behind can't ask to play with or through. It's the responsibility of the group ahead to invite the group behind to either play with or through especially if you are playing slow. Played behind the twosome until hole 14 when they finally realized they were dickering on the course a little excessively and asked me to play through. Caught up to another twosome and they asked me to join them; which I did. Finished holes 16-18 as a threesome.

Overall happy with the course conditions. POP was another issue but it's not the fault of the course, just very private golfers. Recommend the course to others? Yes, play it soon and do take advantage of that GK Coupon for Los Amigos!

Played today using my handy dandy GK Coupon for Santa Anita. Tee off after 1:30PM. Finished around 4:30PM with loads of light to spare and before the twilight crowd. Caught the late morning groups after 7 holes.

Greens in pretty decent shape; very receptive. They rolled well with medium/slow speed. Green complexes have that sticky kikuya grass so mind your release. Fairways may look a little yellow-ish but there was sufficient cushion underneath -- No thin lies here. Rough is a mix of thin to thick to bare but it's rough so stay away. Bunkers had compact sand. Difficult to get my club underneath but after a few shots in the bunkers you always figure a way of of those hazards.

Pace of play was brisk. Started as a single, ended up as a 5-some as the groups behind kept coming.

This was first visit here. Heard a lot of positive things about this course so I wanted to check it out for myself. Love the layout. It's fun, challenging and conditions I was say as pretty good for this time of year. Not bad for you folks in the San Gabriel valley. Play here again? You betcha! Recommended.

Played today at Twilight (1st group) not bad for just $11 and 9 holes. Finished in just under 2 hours.

Greens looking decent. Folks FIX your divots. They are a bit bumpier in the afternoon sun and slower but a good firm putt typically keeps your ball on line.

Fairways had good coverage and nice cushioning. Rough is thick or spotty take your pick. Bunkers have this fine dust to thick, grainy sand. Tee boxes were for the most part level and playable. Overall not a bad deal for the price and walking. Excellent way to nip your golf urges in the bud.

Played Friday with the GK Gurus. Thanks to JohnnyGK for setting up this little get together of GK Gurus.

Course is in pretty good shape. Fairways were lush with nice padding underneath. Rough was thick and sticky. Careful to watch you ball though; it will sink to the bottom of the rough. Traps both along the fairway and around the green complexes had plenty of sand with just enough sand to get through the ball. Greens had subtle breaks. For me it was hard to read but the ball rolled relatively true; just had to hit it firm enough to stay online.

Pace of Play (POP) was fine up until hole 6 when it ground to a halt. Not the course's fault just remember it's a resort so you will get hardcore golfers mixed with novices. Service was a step beyond.

My personal thoughts were I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Course was in decent to very good shape. GPS was spot on and the laser friendly flag sticks were great for my little range finder. Recommended for their stay and play deals. There is a little bit of everything for everyone especially families with younger kids. The little water park on site looked fun.

Easily a recommended place to play when down in San Diego.

Love this place. Never played here before but from what they have here it's a definite deal. Brand new everything. From the double deck driving range to the targets and Tee to Green... everything lush.

Greens on this par 3 course rolled well with med/fast speed. Subtle breaks so watch and learn. Great place to practice your short game. Tee boxes are all off mats but VERY NICE ones. Loads of tricky holes for even the short distance and will test your short game.

Loads of friendly folks play here and actually give way to faster groups. Nice touch for a really great facility.

Played my second round GK Cup with MrKich last Monday this week. Let me say first that he played a solid game on his home course. I however found every which way to NOT give him a run for his money. Great to meet and play. Only wish I could have executed some of my shots a tad better.

Greens were on the medium slow side. They rolled true and were amazingly in great shape. Kudos to the staff. Bunkers were a mixed bag of well stocked sand and some with hard-packed. I managed to get both. Knowing what I know now I would have played those shots differently and know what to look for in the bunkers. Fairways were GREEN. Nary a thin lie. Very playable and fun to hit from when I actually did find the fairway. Rough was thick and punishing. The ball would literally sick down and you had to really hunt for your ball along the second cut of the fairway. Green complexes are in tip top shape. Although the greens ran little slower they did run true. Tee boxes were flat and playable.

Pace of play was leisurely. We had a single in front and a single behind us. We kept pace with the single in front. Overall I have to say, if you have the opportunity to play this course get yourself over here fast... Conditions are pretty above what I would consider good conditions for a municipal. That means they are better than average ... more above average.

Side Note: I knew I was in for a match when MrKich managed to chip his ball within inches of the hole for his birdie and my bogey. Great playing with him. Wish him well on the next round of the GK Cup!

Thanks for the endorsement Nick.

Greens in fine shape. Perhaps best I have seen them in a LONG while. They are keeping the course moist with the heat so don't expect a lot of roll out. Greens rolled fairly true with medium slow speed. Not a lot of bumps but you will get that with the setting sun -- it's only natural. During the morning and mid day hours expect your ball to roll fairly true. Fairways are thick and spongy. Definitely what I would call well padded fairways. Not a lot of thin lies like you would expect at Alondra. Still there are some thinning spots but from the watering you could tell they are trying to remedy the situation. Bunkers are OK. They have sand -- compacted with loads of foot traffic just to add that challenge to your shot out of a hazard. Tee Boxes are mostly bowl shaped but use your two club lengths to find yourself a flat spot so quite frankly deal with it.

Pace of play in the morning is slow. Expect a long-ish round.

Played my GK Cup 10 match today at Chester against Cobra1788.

Greens were in pretty decent shape. They looked really splotchy but actually rolled pretty well. They held their line with a well struck putt with medium/slow speed. Truthfully the greens felt spongy but very playable. One green 17 I believe (hdcp 2) front of the green was a little chewed up but the rest of the greens were in decent shape. First cut around the greens a little high so you could not lay your club next to the a ball resting or near the fringe. Fairways in decent shape. It had good coverage. Rough was thick and very penal.
The ball would literally sink down so you had to be close enough to see your ball peeking through the thick rough or just loose it altogether. Bunkers well stocked with sand. Tee boxes would be my only complaint. I like to tee my ball low. The grass on the tee boxes were a little high so my ball would literally sit just about the grass. It was just visually strange but certainly playable.

Pace of play 4 hours with a threesome behind us and a slow foursome in front.

Overall course was in playable condition. Good pace of play with receptive greens and consistent putting surfaces.

Played yesterday. The short of it, the course is in good condition.

Greens rolling well with medium speed. They held their line with a well-struck putt. Loads of divots though so folks please clean up your mess so others may enjoy the greens as well. Bunkers also not well kept. I swear Bigfoot lives near there because those footprints are EVERYWHERE. Folks please clean up your mess. The worse case and it will happen often because literally no one rakes their mess if you will find yourself in a footprint in the bunker.

Good coverage in both fairways and rough. Rough is THICK. Ball will tend to sink into rough so try to keep your ball in play or suffer a sticky, penal mess that will shorten your shot.

Tee boxes are flat for the most part. If they aren't flat by the tee markers remember you have two club lengths to find a nice flat spot so totally playable.

Pace of play could have been faster but paired with two newbies that played a lot of army golf (left/right/left).

Tee Boxes are lush and level. Fairways are spotty. A lot of what Robbie said previously is true. It's a mix of grass, thin lies, bare lies... you name it.

Bunkers have a thin layer of sand with clay underneath. Greens are spongy. They don't hold a line well and get particularly bumpy in the afternoon sun. You can literally see the unevenness of the greens.

Pace of play extremely fast. Under two hours for 9 holes. Loads of light.
