Because of the "Windmill Classic" both course are officially closed Friday/Saturday, but I decided to sneak out at 5am and try to get around before they "kicked me off" I made it to #14 before the super "reminded" me the course was closed for the tournament, But since I assured him I would be finished by 7:30, and shotgun wasn't until 9am, he allowed me to finish.. (I won't push my luck tomorrow!)

Lots of maintenance everywhere, but I stayed ahead of them, but they have the course looking very good. Greens rolled super true and quick. Everything cut & trimmed.

I don't play in the tournaments because I prefer to play early and quickly, plus it's difficult to justify paying big $$$ to play a course I'm already paying monthly dues to play !

Played 5/17 super early. Both courses are being groomed for the annual "Windmill Classic" so conditions are excellent right now. Stayed ahead of maintenance, so did not have any mowed greens, but even uncut they rolled very nicely and were reasonably fast The remainder of the course is also in better than normal condition.

To my surprise nobody playing - virtually deserted. (Maybe that's because I teed off so early?)

As it had been a while since I played the South course, thought I'd return. My original plan was to play the "Jack's Black" tees, but given the cool damp early morning conditions, I thought better and decided not to punish myself and play the blue tees instead. Good decision! Still all the course I can handle and more even at those tees.

Conditions were typical Los Serranos. Greens were the best part of the course, but otherwise everythingelse was decent. Few spots in some of the fairways, but nothing too bad. Both bunkers I found had plenty of sand and were well raked.

Not very busy and staff was as usual very accommodating. Always enjoy playing here, but I sure do miss all the trees !

5:45am tee time Monday, and to my surprise and delight, other than a threesome who had a 5:15 tee time, there was NOBODY there. I've played here enough to know how busy it can bee in the early morning, but not today, and I do not understand because the overall condition of the course might be the best I can ever recall.

Greens were nice, fairways also pretty good. Greenside bunkers were great, lots of well maintained sand. Rough and tee boxes good, not great.

Let me say that for $16.50 it's just a great deal, particularly when you can play without any wait on a nicely maintained course. The only thing I found unusual was that the ball did not seem to get much roll in the fairways. (?) Maybe I'm just losing even more distance because the course seemed to play longer than my memory served? Even so, great time and enjoyed the 2 1/2 hour stroll through the hills, enjoying the beautiful scenery.

I was looking for somewhere to play that was quick and inexpensive, and after reading the review by Chevelle, decided to return to Paradise Knolls. $15 is such a good deal and rarely have any issues getting out early here.

I find the very unusual green shapes so charming. I wish I could place the pin positions some day which would make this otherwise shorter course quite a challenge to score, The greens are always the best part of this course as was the case this time. Overall condition was better than expected, and again for $15, how can you complain?

5:56 am tee time this morning, and to my surprise and delight, not very busy so our threesome was able to get out a little early. None of the greens we played had been mowed, so they were rather slow. Still could see evidence of prior punching, but didn't really affect the roll. Fairways were about as expected, decent but not great. Rough was hit/miss. I was in two bunkers and both were well raked and had enough sand.

I do not play here all that often, in fact it was the first time I've ever played with other players. (Normally I try to get out first and zip around, but today the wife and friend wanted to play here, so why not.) We got help on the back by "back nine players" but even so were able to finish in about 2 hours 45 minutes. not too bad !

Fun little course,and if you play the "tips" it actually provides a few holes with decent challenge. And for $18 - worth the $$$

Note they are in the process of working on the tee boxes. (Punching?) We were able to get ahead of maintenance after #4, but I'm sure by tomorrow all the holes will be affected.

I do not play this course very often, but met with a friend who is not really much of a golfer, so it was a good choice. (Cheap and easy & fast) I was concerned that it would be super crowded because the weather was so perfect, but while it was busy, the pace wasn't all that bad.

Since it was more about the company than the golf, I was not too focused on conditioning, but to my surprise the greens were actually pretty good. Fairways were another story, but since you are not really in the fairways anyway, who cared? Tee boxes were hit/miss, but just look for a flat spot with grass.

Not much to add to the previous review. It's nice to have these type courses, just wish there were more of them so that the regulation courses would have some play taken from them, plus it provides a venue for the more "casual golfer"

Wanted to play a course which I could walk, because it is so much easier to stay dry, rather than get soaked riding in a cart. Light rain, just enough to require an umbrella, but not so much as to create any issues. Did not want to spend a lot of $$ to play in inclement weather, so El Prado fit the bill.

Course was as expected. Greens being the best part, with the fairways being surprisingly good, with plenty of coverage. Always spotty in the rough, but that's always the case here. Both bunkers I found were well maintained with enough sand.

Staff is always great here, and the price for senior warrants the drive from the OC. So long as your expectations aren't too high, the course does not disappoint. You get what you pay for !

Some confusion at check in because we thought we had the first time out, but because the first group had not arrived yet, we were able to get off without a problem. Weather was rather cool and never did warm up, even as we placed the clubs back into the trunk, the temperatures were only 3 degrees warmer than when we started.

Greens did not look all that great, but were deceptively quick, particularly downhill. Fairways had some areas which need attention but played OK. I was in two bunkers, one had zero sand and the other had just enough to be playable. Rough was "spotty".

I've always enjoyed this course, perhaps because it has no par four holes over 400 yards, which as a senior, lends itself to my now ever decreasing yardage. However the par 3's and the final two par 5 holes are all that I can handle. Just a fun track with plenty of holes which allow birdie opportunities.

Lots of maintenance to deal with this morning, but otherwise nobody playing? Greens, fairways, bunkers all in great shape. Still a few issues with the rough. Because there is some left over materials from the South course bunker renovation, they have added another bunker on #4 and increased the size of a few others. I see that t hey still have a great deal of sand left over, so I'm hoping they "refresh" some of the bunkers, which were completed just bout a year ago.

Greens have not been as quick as before, so a little easier to score, but still can't get above the hole or "short side" yourself or there is no chance to get up and do

Was actually on my way to Los Amigos, but last minute decided to try Rio Hondo. Good decision as I was able to get right out and able to get around in about 3 1/2 hours. Agree with prior review by 24hour, course, while not perfect is in decent shape and the greens have recovered from the punching. Fairways still brown in spots but good coverage. Only in one bunker and it was just fine.

Staff was great, very accommodating. Always enjoy this course. If I can get past the first 5 holes without losing too many strokes, I find the remainder of the course fairly easy to score. The only holes which scares me is # 14. Lots of potential for a big number there

I had not played Montebello for some time so was excited about returning. While I did not expect perfect conditions, I have to admit I was greatly disappointed in the overall condition of the course. It wasn't just that the greens were bumpy, they were as slow as any I've played in a long time. Fairways were spotty with only a 50/50 chance of getting a decent lie, rough and tee boxes were not great, but were OK. However the greenside bunkers were horrible. When I say there was no sand in them, I mean zero, nothing, nada. There was no chance of getting that nice "woosh". in fact anything other than "picking" the ball out wasn't going to work.

We were the third group out and played in about 3 hours 15 minutes. Not bad! Customer service was excellent, but $32 to walk for this course is too much $$. It will be a while before I return.
