play this course about once a year because it's close by and i'm either lazy or cheap. every time i regret it hehe. check-in was friendly and was able to get on earlier than scheduled in later morning when i usually play. teeboxes from black in generally awful condition, with plenty of unrepaired divots, uneven lies, multiple types of grass. fairways were similar, with some completely bare spots of dirt, multiple grasses out there so you had no idea what kind of lie you were going to get. rough ranged from fluffy to thick to downright swamp as there were areas with unmown grass up to 5 inches in standing water. greens were sanded and ran inconsistently, there were some remnants of what may have been some punching but minimal holes, it was just mostly slow, bumpy, and sandy. bunkers sometimes had fluffy sand and sometimes wet hard packed sand depending on whether they got water. why did i have to drive the cart through multiple rivers of standing water? POP was slow at 4h45min. no drink cart, pick something up at the turn while you're waiting on the two groups that area already on 10 teebox. yeah, don't really recommend playing here.» Close

played here late morning a few days ago. it was a cool day so it was actually pleasant out in the inland empire. looks like the heat is back now. this is always one of my favorite course layouts, runs through the quarry beautifully and holes usually make you think a bit. customer service was mentioned in the previous reviews but there wasn't any when i got there, maybe it was a bit later. no one to drop a bag off to, had to flag down the cart guys to get a cart, and no one to check on us when we got back. no starter so i just headed out there with my buddy. the course itself was in better condition than i usually see it, pretty green, but still a big scruffy. the tees from the blues were okay, even the par 3's were okay since they mostly play from 195+ and most people don't take huge divots from that distance. fairways were actually pretty green but did have some brown and bare spots out there. rough was up just a bit and enough to affect our approaches for sure. bunkers out here were pretty bad as usual, pretty much playing out of dirt. i think the wind just makes it hard to keep sand here? worst part was the greens were very slow and bumpy. looks like they had just been verticut so either your putt was with the cut and had no break or it was against the cut and you had to slam the putt to get it there. often times putts would get knocked off line by bumps on the greens. frustrating. anyway it was still a fun day, POP was about 4 hours. for some reason i always score great on the front and get killed by the back. that's golf i guess.» Close

was able to get out here yesterday mid morning. situated in the heart of OC, prices are premium but i feel like it's taken a step back. check in at the shop was fine but guy at the front just tells you to 'take that cart and head off'. carts have no ice chests nor water supplied. there is no GPS, better figure out how to play holes 8, 14, 18 without a map. tee boxes were very chewed up with lots of unfilled divots and grown out ragged and unlevel. fairways were in decent condition with good coverage, some occasional brown/bare spots. there wasn't too much rough to contend with . bunkers were all right, playable. greens were in good condition and ran medium/fast. POP was 4 hours.
layout is mostly creative with a few interesting holes and some forgettable par 4s. they have a discounted rate for irvine residents. if i had a to play a premium course in irvine though, i'd probably head on over to oak creek, it's just a step above right now.» Close

played here last week mid morning as a twosome, a bit of a late review. i like the layout of this course, not too difficult if you have played it a few times and know where to hit it. course was in dry late summer conditions as expected due to the heat. teeboxes were all in good condition from the blues. fairways had generally decent thinnish coverage, but there were some brown and occasional bare areas. there isn't too much rough here to speak of. i was not in any bunkers. greens are the best part of the course, played soft, medium speed, and rolled pretty true with minimal bumps. approaches were generally hop and stop. wasn't very crowded out there, we played through a couple off groups after getting backed up behind a foursome front 9 and made it around in about 3 1/2. enjoy playing here when i can.» Close

got out to play here yesterday mid morning and the course was in good condition. customer service was good as usual from check in to the cart guys to the starter. tees were probably the biggest letdown, some uneven lies especially on the par 3s and probably a little fluffier than i like as even long tees would sit down. fairways had good coverage, just enough cushion to provide a little extra forgiveness. rough was grown out just enough so your ball would sometimes sit down and make getting it out of there a tough task. i was only in one fairway bunkers but it had nice white sand that was almost too fluffy. it was like playing out of the beach. better hit it hard. greens were the best part, softer than i remember the last time i played but smooth, ran true. enjoy the layout here, always challenging and even though in the heart of irvine feels secluded. only caveat is that the teeboxes on 18 are under construction so it is playing temporarily as a par 4 with temp tees in the middle of the fairway from only about 300 yards. a shame wasn't able to play one of the best holes IMO. POP was just under 4, which is decent but under the heat felt like a LONG day.» Close
