Went off a little before 7 and finished in 4:15. Check in was smooth and the fence is fixed in the range so that is now open. The practice green by the range is still not open yet.

Greens are in fantastic shape and they are rolling very quick. I raced several putts well by the hole. A few too many fresh and old ball marks that were not repaired properly but with the amount of play it gets I expect this.

Fairway are nice. Mowed nice and great to hit from. There are probably a few areas that need to be addressed but I don’t remember any one in our group having an issue from a bad break.

Rough is not the place you want to be. It is thick and I was told it was thicker last week. I almost lost my first shot. One guy in our group lost 2 on the first 9 and I swear I saw both of them but never could find it when we got there. This is probably why rounds will take longer due to searching for errant shots.

I was in a couple of bunkers. The green side bunkers are great, nice sand and freshly raked. The 2 fairway bunkers were quite the opposite. There were weeds growing in it. Didn’t look like it had been raked in quite a while which resulted in golfers giving up on raking their footprints (yes I found one).

Tees are pretty good. I noticed some of the forward tees seemed like the grass was still growing in.

Overall a pleasant experience and well worth the resident fee.

Played a couple of times this week and was first off and pace was awesome at a little over 3 hours both times. There is a big military tourney this weekend (and Sea n Air) and thought the conditions would be good and they are. Greens are really good and faster than I remember them being. Even that early in the morning I still ran quite a few putts past the hole. Don't get me wrong these are not Augusta fast but I guess playing here I remember you could be real aggressive with putts and I realized I just couldn't be as aggressive as I was in the past. There were still ball marks to deal with and chances are you'll probably end up having to fixing them on quite a handful of putts. Both days there were workers out there early getting water on the greens.

Fairways and rough are good. There are some not so good areas and some really good areas. There are some spots in the rough where the ball just really sets down making for a challenging shot and other lies where it never even impacted my decision on club selection.

Bunkers were great. Was in a few and both had a good amount of sand in them. I really like the thump it made when hitting out of them. Both of these were greenside bunkers. Fairway bunkers looked a little firmer but don't quote me on that.

Staff was great. I pay the civilian rate and I think its worth the fee of $34 walking. It's a big property and a long walk but its pretty flat.

Played this morning at 7:15 as a 3some surrounded by 4somes. Pace wasn’t an issue right at 4:15. There was a “slow” group out there but since they were on pace the marshal said he couldn’t do anything.

Course conditions are pretty poor right now with the exception of the greens. Greens are great. Rolled fast but there are many ball marks both new and old. Really the highlight. Not as firm as they have been but that was probably too firm.

All tee boxes have been moved up. When I mean moved up this was playing more like the gold tees. Also they need more time for the ocerseeding. The grass is growing but more is needed and they need to be cut.

This is true for the fairways as well. It is way too long. Sometimes I had trouble telling where the rough began and the fairway ends.

Sand was good. Actually holed out because there was actual sand to make the proper shot. Crazy concept.

Not worth it right now and I hope it’s not this way until the farmers in January. By the way the south looks completely baked out in preparation for the overseeding this coming week.

Was 2nd off yesterday and cruised around in 3 1/2 hours. We were 3, there was a 2some behind us so it wasn’t busy at all out there. Rat’s review is spot on. Greens are pretty good. They are not going to wow you with speed but balls did stay on line with the occasional ball mark that needed to be repaired. Still dead areas out there which made for some difficult shots. I did see what Rat was talking about with the tee boxes. Looks like they have been marked. I wasn’t sure if that was for the mowers or how they redo the tee boxes. There was a new one on 10 which is a little further back. I did think the tee boxes needed to be cut but there were mowers out there hopefully they got them done. They were a little long for my taste. Overall enjoyable.

Played a twilight round today and conditions are pretty much the same but the greens had been punched. The holes are not the micro holes or as big as I’ve seen but they are probably about the size of a pencil. It definitely impacted putts along with the ball marks, footprints, etc.

Like I said everything else is pretty consistent with the last review except it’s probably a little drier than last time. Overall the conditions won’t wow you but I’d certainly wait a couple of weeks until the greens are healed.

Played a couple of times this past weekend in the 7ish time slot. Overall the course is really worn down. Its definitely being prepped for the maintenance in a couple of weeks. There are lots of bare areas and there is a good chance you'll find yourself facing the challenge of trying to hit a chip over a bunker from a lie that won't let you do that. Many bunkers had very little sand in them which is ok from the fairway ones but really tough from the greenside ones. Greens are in pretty decent shape and rolled at a medium pace but I'd still wait until after the maintenance until playing. Even after that there is not much time to play before the Farmers. After the Farmers the course will be starting its renovations for the Open so the window to play here is closing fast.

Got here a little before 6 to put my name on the list and got in the 3rd group out at 6:40ish. Pace wasn’t an issue as we cruised to 3:30 finish. Overall conditions are pretty impressive. Greens are in great shape. Not too many ball marks, old and new. I do remember it looked like a little fungus spot on the front of 4 and a handful of dead areas. Bu considering the amount of play this course gets I really like the overall aesthetic of the greens. They also rolled at a decent pace too.

Fairways are in good shape too. Again there are some dead spots but it’s really good to hit from. Sat up nicely on the fairway.

Rough is the same. Not penalizing but those trees do come into play.

I was in the green side bunker on 10 and plugged in the face and there was no way for me to get out. I was surprised there was that much sand especially that high up. Others looked consistent. Fairway bunkers looked a little firmer thou.

Considering most courses are undergoing maintenance this course is certainly worth a look and for $37 to walk certainly fits into anyone budget.

Was 3rd off this morning as a 2some following 2 3somes. There was a single behind us who never caught us so pace was right around 3:30.

Greens were probably about medium speed. There was some morning dew which seemed to slow them down a bit. I thought some greens were a tad quicker so maybe a little inconsistency in that regard. Pretty smooth, I really didn't remember seeing many ball marks other than my own.

Fairways were good. Some rough spots but generally good lies. There were some wet areas from the overnight watering (some in the rough too).

Rough is down and a little dicey in areas but the canyons is the real rough.

Most tee markers were off to the side of the tee box waiting for the mowers to get to them. They did need a cut too I thought it was a tad too long for my taste. It was nice that they redid the tees on 14 and looked like they were leveling 10.

Played yesterday morning and was the fourth group out. Overall pace was about 4:15. There was a shotgun at 8 that started on the back so once they finished the back 9 the pace did pick up at the end.

Greens are decent. They are probably rolling at an average pace. There were guys out watering as we were playing so maybe they would be a little faster as they dried out. Seeing how they were watered there was quite a big ball mark as your approach shot hit the green. Less ball marks overall than I expected so that was good. Still some old ones that hadn’t been properly repaired but I’ve seen way more in previous visits.

Rough for the most part is down but there were a handful of areas that were really thick. Mowers were out so maybe they just hadn’t gotten to them yet. There were also many dead areas out there which is disappointing but considering the summer I guess that is to be expected. Chances are you’ll likely have to deal with a lie in this and it’s no fun.

Fairways are decent. Like most other courses they do show signs of the heat taking its toll but still pretty good to hit from. Good coverage and mowed at a good height.

In a couple of traps and I didn’t have a problem with them. Seemed to be sand in the ones I hit from.

Considering little brother is still recovering from maintenance this is certainly in better shape but still needs some TLC. If you were a non resident I’d say it’s better to wait u til after the fall maintenance is completed. If you were a resident and think the fee is high then you’ll probably not justify the conditions right now.

First of all just note the greens are scheduled to be punched next Tuesday and Wednesday.

Played here a few times the past couple of weeks and wanted to summarize all the reviews in one. Greens are not bad but there are a lot of ball marks on them so maybe now is a good time to punch them. Hopefully they just don't take as long to heal. Greens rolled decently if they stayed on line. Certainly not a firm as before but still some roll out on approach shots.
The biggest disappointment is the areas around the greens. There are some really bad areas with dead grass, no grass, sandy areas, etc. I'm not sure I had a round in which I didn't have to deal with a bad lie at some point. I couldn't figure out how to play these shots either and I tried, chipping, using a hybrid and putting. None of my choices seem to be the right one.

Fairways showing more signs of a dry summer, more browness, dead areas but still a decent amount of coverage on the fairways.

Rough is not bad and I mentioned the areas around the greens. The same could be said in other areas of the rough. Its down so its not penalizing at all.

Tee boxes are generally ok, some are worse than others and I think #1 might have been one of the worse ones.

Pace of play was generally good. I was always out in the am so it never took over 4 hours.

Bottom line is the course is in a little TLC right now so I would hold off playing until the maintenance is complete.

Got here on Friday morning about 5:45 and was about 8th in line. First tee time is 6 and i teed off at 6:30 so not that bad of a wait. Finished in about 4 hours.

There were some greens on the front that look to have a fungus on them. Greens on the back are much better and roll pretty well. Not super fast but decent. Not too many ball marks that early which is nice considering how much play it gets.

Fairways are pretty good. I was hitting a lot of wayward drives so I didn’t get to hit from here as much as I like. Maybe a few more divots than most other places. A few dead areas but not too bad.

Rough is not penalizing but these trees seem to get in the way. It’s like once you get in there it’s a _____ to get out of. I’ve also noticed some trees are gone. I was told some of the eucalyptus were blown over during some high winds we had.

Sand was really good. Was in a couple greenside and really able to take nice full swings to get that ball popping out and landing soft.

Smock was running the starter booth for a bit, hopefully he does well next week at the pga. Since he’s taken over I have thought the service is vastly improved. Before it didn’t seem like the people were grumpy or flat out didn’t care. Now everyone seems happier. Even now that the rate is $37 I still think it’s a good value. Cooler temps and a little breeze at this time of year feels nice than sweating it out at most other courses.

Played yesterday and was 4th off. Finished in 4 hours and 15 minutes. It could have been a lot faster if it wasn’t for the second group. They didn’t even tee off until the first group cleared the green and I’ll refrain from commenting on other things I saw of this group.

Greens are not as firm and fast as I’ve seen here but that is not a bad thing. It was just an adjustment based on my prior experience. There are actually ball marks on greens now. Some greens had many ball marks that hadn’t been properly repaired and they still show signs of those dead spots. #6 comes to mind. Rolled pretty well though.

Fairways were pretty good. Nice to hit from. A few bare areas but you’ll generally have good lies.

Rough is down and very playable right now. A few more bare areas in the rough than I’d like to see but not the worst.

Sand was very good. Looks heavy and wet but that is just the type of sand here. I was able play the shots I wanted which was a nice splash/thump.

Plenty of room on the tee boxes to tee it up. Maybe just the normal wear and tear on the par 3s.

For a resident it will fit the bill but for a nonresident I’d think it be better to wait until there are a little bit more in improvements.
