Went out around noon today paired up with another single who turned out to be very pleasant company. I've reviewed this course in detail in the past so this will be short. Solid all around conditions. Tees flat and well covered, a few isolated, damp, thin spots on otherwise nice fairways, recoverable rough, firm bunkers, and reasonably clean, medium quick greens that were fun to putt on with some subtle and challenging contours.
Made it around in about 4.25 hrs with some intermittent waiting. Nicely maintained, shorter course with two pretty different nines. A very relaxed and enjoyable day of golf.» Close

Went to the course solo this morning and got out a little after 9:00 AM paired with a pleasant couple. I had gotten there just late enough to miss my 8:48 reservation but they got me out pretty shortly thereafter.
Overall conditions were pretty good. The black and blue monuments were combined, which I played and generally had no issues in the tees boxes with finding levels lies and enough grass of appropriate length. The fairways were in overall good shape, usually offering good lies. There were only occasional browned spots on the fairways, but not only were they generally few and far between, they weren't particularly thin and still gave one's ball some cushion. One exception that comes to mind was the 18th fairway, which was lumpier and less clean overall than most of the other fairways. Rough was generally green, playable, and sometimes punitive. I was in a few bunkers and they were clean, firm-ish but not hard, and quite playable — my efforts no withstanding. The greens were in good shape and medium quick. There was some underlying moisture in the course so pitch marks on the greens were more pronounced, but the surface quality was generally fairly clean and true.
A nice, warm day without being overly hot, and vey little wind to factor in for most of the round. I didn't note the exact times, but I think the round came in a little under five hours. While there was some occasional waiting and the pace was not exactly brisk, it generally moved along steadily enough that it really didn't feel that long.
As munis go, I'd say it's in better shape overall than most and recommend it. I like the layout, had no real complaints and really enjoyed my round.» Close

Drove out to Moorpark today for a 12:40 tee time to play as a threesome using a coupon I received via their email list — @20% off green fee regular rate, lunch and warmup balls for $65 M-Th (Friday $79, weekends / holidays $89.) The Canyon nine was closed for the day so all play was on the Ridgeline and Creekside nines. I don't think I'd been out there in about two years, but the course is high on my list and I was happy to have an excuse to make out there again. It didn't disappoint.
Playing the whites, the tee boxes were level with nice coverage. Fairways were in very nice shape, gave a fair amount of rollout and I don't recall seeing a brown or really thin spot all day. Rough varied as rough does, but was generally thick and long enough to be a little grabby and penalizing. I missed the bunkers but observed them as well groomed, clean and on the firm side. Areas around the greens were good for short game. I noticed some of the putting surfaces were a bit marked up but, in the main, were very nice. They ran pretty true and were quick — my guess around 11 on the stimp.
Weather was very nice with a light, 1-club breeze. The course was fairly busy but we got around in a little over four hours. Great patio for hanging out in the late afternoon for the post round libation. An all around nice golf day and conditions, I highly recommend the course right now.» Close

Went out walking Sunday morning, 9/9, with an 11:07 tee time combined with three other players into a foursome. RGM 2525 wrote a review after playing here a few days earlier and there is little I can add to it, so I will point you there since he describes pretty much the exact conditions I experienced.
The differences that come to mind are that it took us 4.5 hrs. to play with no one in front slowing us down (ouch), and the one fairway bunker I was in was perfect for executing a recovery. I also used the Greenskeeper coupon, so it was a great deal for a nice course. My dog also had a good time, although he got around with fewer strokes.» Close

Went out walking yesterday, Friday afternoon, around 3:30-ish as two-some, let out by a threesome waiting for their fourth, to a pretty open course. I was last here in May, came back for a change of pace, and was pleasantly surprised by the conditions. That last statement is tempered by the fact that my expectations were not high. Overall, the course was greener in the key areas than I thought it would be after all the heat. The first fairway is usually the worst one on the course for thinner lies and the occasional hardpan, but it generally had decent coverage and green lies. That was the case in the main parts of the fairways through the course. Many holes do have bare, hard areas from in front of the tee boxes leading out to the start of the fairway, usually 50 to 100 yards — generally not landing areas. Fairways can also get a little lumpy in spots. Similarly, the tee boxes were a bit lumpy at times but generally had coverage and a level spot to tee it up. The rough is a mixed bag from hard pan to thicker grass. The one bunker my partner hit into looked pretty firm, with the ball sitting on top of the sand surface. Greens were generally decent — receptive and running at a medium pace with a few having a less consistent surface due to mixed growth.
My friends gift for inefficiency not withstanding, we got around in good time before any late afternoon rush, with no one in front of us, pressed a bit by a twosome in a cart on the last few holes. On it's best day, the course tends to be a scruffy around the edges, but it was enjoyable enough for a casual round. I'll be back for a super twilight round before too long.» Close
