Played with Mr. Kich on 10/5 at 7:20am. Not a whole lot to add to his review. Montebello is in average to above-average condition across the board, and is nowhere near the 3.0 review that was recently posted.
Greens were in great shape. Softer in the morning and firmed up a touch as the sun came out. Rolling really smooth and pure. The putting green by the pro-shop is a great indicator of the overall conditions of the greens. Stay below the hole!
Fairways were in average muni condition. They were definitely played thin and firm for the most part, but there were no issues with the lies and there was always grass under the ball. One a couple fairways, there were some noticeable dirt patches, especially on 18 fairway, but these were in the vast minority.
Rough was thick and sticky, especially in the dew of the morning. It appears to be growing out.
Tees were level. There were some areas with divot damage, especially on the shorter holes, but there was never a problem finding a flat patch of grass to tee from.
Like every other review, the sand is the obvious worst part of this course. However, while they were bad, they were consistently bad in the same way (very little sand), which made them fine to play from.
POP just under 4:30, good customer service from everyone. This is really fun layout that gives you a lot of options on a number of holes. Go play!» Close

Played 8/6 with Mr. Kich in the afternoon after our morning at Soule Park. Found a great deal online and ended up paying $69 for one of the first twilight times. This was my first time out here, as the higher rack rate and distance made other courses in the area more attractive.
Greens were in great shape, save for quite a bit of unrepaired ball marks. Considering how small some of these greens are, it was a bit surprising. However, they putted very smooth and true, and definitely ran faster as the afternoon sun dried them out.
Fairways were incredibly lush and provided great lies to hit from all day. Rough was really thick in spots. It made club selection and line off the tee critical.
Tees were lush, level, and well placed. I found a couple to be pointing to a less than ideal line, but that might have just been in my head.
I was in a number of sand traps and found the sand to be consistent beachy sand that provided a fair test to play out of.
POP on a hot weekday afternoon was great and well under 4 hours. A group of guys who seemed more interested in the beer cart were more than happy to let us play through on the front nine and we were pretty much by ourselves the rest of the round. Customer Service was excellent, from Dave on the phone and in the proshop, to the starter who let us out a little early, the plentiful water jugs on the course were great on a summer afternoon.
OVI was in outstanding shape, provided a good test of golf, allowed multiple shots, and definitely required a good amount of course management. I still don't know if I'd pay the rack rate, especially with Soule just down the road (and Olivas, River Ridge, and Rustic not too far away), but deals aren't too difficult to come by, especially if you're able to play during the week or in the afternoon.» Close

Played 8/6 with Mr. Kich on an unseasonably cool morning. Starter was very nice and let us out at our leisure as the course was pretty empty on a weekday morning.
Not much to complain about. My last time out here was in the thick of the drought and it was clear that the lack of water at the time really took a toll on the course. Now, Soule is about as lush as any other course in Southern California.
Greens were unquestionably the highlight of the course. Large and incredibly smooth, they putted true as can be. In fact, the slightly overcast and damp morning made them even trickier than usual, as the large linksy greens didn't play as firm as you'd expect.
Fairways were lush and provided great lies. Tighter near the greens to allow for various options. A few bare areas, but they were few and far between and for the most part relegated to the areas least likely to see play.
Rough was thick and lush and definitely provided a challenge to play from, especially near the greens.
Sand was a little hit or miss, but it didn't feel terribly out of place given the links-esque feel of the course. Greenside bunkers were soft and sandy, while fairway bunkers were more inconsistent.
The tees were for the most part in very good condition, however a few had quite a bit of divot damage and looked like they needed to be rotated a little.
POP was pretty leisurely. Mr. Kich and I were playing our GK Cup match, so we were probably a little slower than we would normally have played. A single did show up in front of us on 10 and never got more than a hole in front of us. A minor annoyance, but since we were still moving at a brisk pace, it wasn't much of a bother.
If Soule Park was closer, I would play it regularly and often. It's an absolute steal for the condition it's in. It's a very fair test of golf, fun and challenging for all handicaps (a plethora of tee options), a great layout, putting green, practice bunker, and customer service.» Close
