Played Mt. Meadows with the Dawgs today, 20 min. late on the tee and a dismal PoP at 5:20 with waiting everywhere. Greens are not ready for prime time quite yet, soft and uneven surface, speed varies from green to green. Tee boxes are munched, fairways dry with lot's of divots ... green-ish Kikuyu. Some areas are in distress along green aprons with no white paint to be found. Bunkers playable but many footprints from the lazy golfers. Hilly, interesting layout with trouble lurking if you leave the fairways.

Wait a couple more weeks for the greens to heal. Crowded today, peeps everywhere.

El Do at 7:30 this morning, off right on time with a PoP a tick over 4 hrs (Holiday rate was $52 walking ... gulp). The course is in excellent shape right now. Not much to add to my last review other than the Poa greens are about as good as Poa can get right now. Cut short and very quick but so true as most greens will give you a fairly straight putt. Lawnboy doing an excellent job, even broke out the red paint today so the Men's club can play by the Rules tomorrow. I do miss the big tree on #10, it'll be 10 years before the saplings they planted come into play.

Highly recommended at this time.

I found a single $54 walking tee time via Golfzing on Sat for Sun, 6:44am, so I jumped on it ... with a goal to be home by noon for the Masters (same with my playing partners, good peeps=fun round). Off on time but, again, W/E PoP was a dismal 4:40. No rant this time, but for those who play early and slow, see my review for Tijeras Creek on 4/7/17.

The course is in overall good shape. Bermuda is starting to green up a bit and the fairways have full cover as does the near non-existent rough. Good rollout for my driver is also good for my golf ego. Greens were rolling at a medium pace, really nice to putt on with no signs of recent aeration. Was in a few G/S bunkers which were in very playable condition and maintained.

Was sorry to see the previous review, very unhappy camper. For sure, a late round at one of the LB muni's means slow PoP. Just gotta suck it up or play somewhere else. My experience was not nearly the same, I enjoyed the course and group I was paired ... will return.

Tijeras Creek as a single on Friday morning, $65 CC senior rate, with a 7:11 tee time, on time. PoP stagnant (4:30) for such an early tee time. I got some exercise today and walked it, but did get a pull up the hills after 14 & 17. Played with some good folk, too.

[Rant on. It amazes me that there are clueless old farts (I'm an old fart so I can say it) who like to play early but cannot get around in 4 hrs or less ... even when they ride. Suggestion: grab a later tee time!!! Rant off.] Yes, we waited on every shot except after the par 3's.

Found the course in very good condition, tee to green (see leef2020's extensive prior review, it's spot on). Fairways were fuzzy until the mowers got out, then they were just right. Greens are a bit soft, ball marks were craters, but rolling at predictable medium speed, semi-true. Was in one f/w bunker on #1, well maintained and good cover.

Always enjoy playing the back side here, like a walk in the woods. Grass range (Fri-Sun) and nice short game green. Range balls are $9 for 50. Recommended.

Met up with some southern (Cali) family members for a Wednesday round ... picked the Crossings due to the excellent GK reviews and a good $60 online rate ... I let them know that, too. Would have really enjoyed teeing up with Johnny and the gang next week but my work schedule has been hectic and just taking off yesterday was challenging. Gentlemen, you'll have fun here, guaranteed. This course is quite the adventure.

Anyway, the recent reviews are all accurate. The course is an up-and-down, meandering layout thru the Carlsbad hills and a challenge to boot. Most fairways are lined with blue ESA markers so you need to be on your game or you'll give up a few strokes (and balls) to the open, natural surroundings which, by the way, are still full of yellow and blue flowers. Really quite beautiful.

Fairways are more of a greenish- tan color which contrasts the dark green of the rough and tee boxes. The landing areas can be generous or quite narrow, it varies from hole to hole. A mixture of long and short par 5's & par 3's, a bit of risk/reward so long hitters can go for it and only lose a stroke and not distance if the ball goes into the ESA. I hit more layup shots on this course than I have this entire year to date (yep, no cajones).

For sure, a course I'll visit again when I don't mind the drive. Oh, the greens: they were pure. Really enjoyed putting these babies but a little course knowledge would've helped (no birdies for me). Bunkers professionally conditioned. Staff, food, marshals etc. all top notch ... the service is what you'd expect from courses which charge twice the green fee.

Really recommend this jewel. And look online for deals.

Lakewood today (Sat.), $40 walking, PoP at 4.5 hrs w/8:40AM tee time, on time. Course has dried out nicely. For the most part, the greens have recovered from aeration but still a bit bumpy Poa, medium speed today with a sandy texture. Held all shots. Fairways green and easy to play from, some thin areas. Rough full and thick. Bunkers very good sand and well conditioned. Will rate it higher once the greens are back to normal.

Not a tough course, it's flat and mostly generous fairway widths, but can play a bit long from the tips for sure. Need a strong driver or you'll be hitting long irons and hybrids to the greens.

Driving range still under construction with an October estimate completion date. Excellent short game practice area. Lot's of geese doing their Spring dance looking for a partner.

Good muni golf for a decent price. Recommended.

Was able to book a 7:16 single tee time at El Do this morning via the SCGA website, $38 walking non-res. The standing water is gone and the grass on this course is as green as I've ever seen it, tee to green ... and everywhere else. A few thin areas pop up but for the most part the rains that came over the winter did this course a huge favor. Rough lush and deep in some areas so you really need to spot your ball if you leave the fairway. Lawnboy & his crew just punched the greens 11 days ago so the Poa needs another week to get back to normal, which is usually very good to excellent putting. Bunkers were conditioned today and easy to play out, some of the best sand you'll find on any public course anywhere.

Just a treat to play here today and I plan to play here again soon ... just had to wait for the water to absorb. PoP was 4 hrs on the nose but El Do can be really slow if you don't go off early. Highly recommended.

Caught Coyote Hills the weekend before punching with the Road Dawgs on a Sunday, PoP around 4.5 hrs with a 10AM tee time. Pre-paid, so I don't know W/E green fees but the M-F senior special is still working ... if you're over 60, it's the best deal in So Cal.

Course conditions: fairways seemed dry and thin lies in most areas (Bermuda) so there was ample roll out which MUST be taken into consideration when choosing your club off the tee ... rough cut short so not much of a factor. I'm not considered a long hitter and spilt most tee shots between driver and 3-metal (or long iron), and we played black tees. Bunkers were in good shape although a bit thin and dry in some areas. Greens rolled true and held most well struck shots.

I'll be back in a month or so, Bermuda comes out of dormancy and greens heal, to hit that senior special which I am eligible (the only good thing about getting older). Recommended.

Played T-Creek Sat. AM in 4.25 hrs as a single joining a 3-some, nice guys. Creek Card free B-day round. Beautiful Spring day, just a light breeze and warm temps. 2 weeks out of aeration so sandy, bumpy at medium speed ... the Poa here always takes a minimum of 4 weeks to heal. Fairways full but a tad shaggy in some areas, getting dry in others. Rough lush and semi-deep, more challenging the farther away from the fairway. Bunkers playable, just a bit messy and uneven.

Great 19th hole, lot's happening today, good vibe at the Cantina. Will be back in April when they can cut the greens to a speedy length.

Got a GolfNow, 12:15 Sat. tee time for two, $85, at SJH. Teed off on time but PoP was dreadful today, no marshal in sight, so we left after over 4.5 hrs on the course when we got to #16. Got hooked up with two nice folks who were clueless on etiquette ... balls flying everywhere and sub-par course conditions, so the decision to bail was easy ... and I rarely do not finish a round of golf.

Greens were extremely firm with lots of shallow unrepaired pitch marks ... the greens here are usually the best part of the course but not right now. In a couple GS bunkers: from thin and not maintained to fluffy and uneven. Terrible conditions in fairways #1-4: hardpan with divots and a mix of grass/weeds which got worse the further you moved into the 'rough'. Can't rate this anything higher than a '5' right now, no disrespect to previous posters.

Honestly, I come here because it's convenient and inexpensive, but current conditions will keep me away for awhile. Sorry, SJH.

The recent spot-on review from dconnally had me itching to play the Arroyo so I dropped off Mom at the hairdresser on Friday and was in the first super-twilight group at 2PM, $50 green fee. Finished right at 6PM so good PoP for an afternoon.

Dave's review captured the course perfectly, but I must say some of the greens were very bumpy from spike marks, so we got some funny rolls. Speed varied, medium to quick and very firm ... shallow ball marks even with a high, well struck approach ... you had to gage your distance to avoid going off the back of the green when playing to a back pin.

The Bermuda is coming into spring shape and the ball sat up nice. Just gotta get players to sand their divots and pat them down.

Really enjoy the Lehman layout here (except the funky #6 which is a par 4 using an iron off the tee), not a home anywhere near the course with plenty of ESA and wildlife. The twilight deal is well worth it. Next time, I'll call Dave and see if he can join me :)

I'm down in the OC over the weekends and decided to finally hit up Tustin Ranch, $85 senior rate (and great B-day special: golf, balls, and breakfast or lunch - FREE!). Played with a couple hi hcp Buds so we did the white tees: short par 5's, many short to mid length par 4's, and mid length par 3's. Most holes are straight, right there in front of you ... it's a flat course with slight rolling hills, mounding, strategic bunkers, and several H2O hazards (easily walkable). Nicely landscaped surrounded by newer homes with tree-lined fairways, it definitely is the prototype hi-end OC golf facility, with lots going on in the afternoon.

Playing the course: I'm sure all the rain helped the fairways which were Bermuda with a bit of Kikuyu along the edges, thrown in for good measure. Some areas in the low lying rough marked GUR, a few holes (besides par 3's) were CPO and you gotta keep an eye on the detailed, touch-screen GPS to know that. Nice carts, semi-bucket seats ... comfy.

Greens rolled very nice at medium-fast pace, held most well struck irons, and are still just a bit sandy from aeration a couple weeks ago. Sand in bunkers was that white, very fine stuff ... well maintained and easy to play from. We got around in 4.5 hrs with short waits on most tee boxes.

Overall, a great experience at T-Ranch and I'm definitely planning to return to play from the back tees. Pricey, for sure, so a deal must be made to make it worthwhile.
