Have been playing golf for several years and have always loved this crazy game. The frustration of hitting a bad shot or missing a short putt can get to you but no better feeling than seeing your drive striped down the middle or that iron shot that ends up next to the pin. I plan to play more as my perspective on life has changed a bit. Being a recent pancreatic cancer survivor made me realize the good things in life are still out there. Don't want to miss em!

My regular group decided to play Diamond Bar on 6/20 and had a 9:00 am time. When we checked in, the starter sent us to the tee box early as the tee box was open. With a couple of minutes, there were 3 groups waiting behind on the tee waiting. We followed a 4 some who left us in the dust. Man, they played fast! The group behind us fell way back so we pretty much had the course on our own. All us walking, we finished in just under 4 hours. I’ll take it.
The last time I was out here, I found the course so, so. I was pleasantly surprised to find the course in much better condition. Fairways were really nice for a change. Some were dry but still overall in nice condition. Especially #12 which was always a bad fairway. The tee boxes were nice as were the bunkers. Sand was a little crusty but ok.
The greens were really impressive. Smooth, rolling faster than I have ever seen them and not many ball marks.
We had a very enjoyable day despite the heat and the constant roar from the Pomona freeway traffic! It’s a muni so you get what you get. It's usually very crowded and not always in good condition but today was different. They have made a number of improvements to the driving so perhaps other improvements are on the way?» Close

Had to take care of some personal business out in San Bernadino and was looking for a place to play after. Decided on OV as it has been a long time. I actually played here not long after it opened in the early 90’s if I remember correctly. That’s how long it’s been and couldn’t remember many holes but do remember there were not any homes out there at that time. In fact nothing was out there. What a change.
Starter sent me out solo and followed a slow 3 some which was fine. I wasn’t in any hurry but was able to bypass the groups ahead on the back 9 and finished in a little over 3 hours. But what a nice golf course!
The layout is not real difficult but is a lot of fun. Fairways are generous and are in great condition. I didn’t have a bad lie. Some dry areas out there but not many . The rough was in great shape and very playable. Bunkers were hard and damp.
The greens are in great shape. Pretty soft, were holding and were rolling true. Some undulations making putts difficult to read.
I was very impressed with this course and cannot say enough good things about it. In addition, they have a real nice driving range and practice area. I just wish I lived closer to this course as I would make it a regular place to play. Definitely recommend!!» Close

Played with Gary00 and Leef2020 in a GK Guru outing on a warm but thoroughly enjoyable day. This was the 2nd time I have played here and enjoyed as much as I did the first time. A fun course to play with elevation changes, nice fairways and really nice greens and we scooted through in just over 3 ½ hours.
Fairways are Bermuda so we got some roll out. Some dry areas out there with some tight lies but overall they were in great condition. Bunkers were firm but found it easy to get out of. Not much heavy rough so missing a fairway didn’t hurt you.
Greens were in great shape. Soft, holding good shots and rolling true. I called them sneaky fast in that it was hard to believe they would roll out as much as they did.
I really enjoy playing here and am looking forward to playing here again. Definitely recommend!! And a huge thank you to Johnny for getting this one for us!! Gracias!!» Close

Had an appointment today with my periodontist out in La Habra who is very near Westridge so I decided to give it a go. Got there around 9:15, $35 riding the blues and the starter got me right out. He said I could join a twosome that he just sent out or I can go it alone. Wanted to join this twosome but they clearly had no interest in me joining them. Fine. So I put on the headphones and went solo.
Pace of play was moving but hit a snag on the back 9. There was a fivesome up ahead that was moving pretty slow (didn’t know they allowed 5??) and passed them up on 12. Finished in 4 hours for a single which is pretty slow.
Last time here was about 8 months ago and the conditions then were great. Different story today. What in the world has happened to this golf course? Very dry, weeds growing in the fairways and in the areas near the greens, many bare spots. Even the kikuyu grass was starting to die out. The tee boxes were better and some were going under repair. The rough was nice and playable where it wasn’t dry. Was in a couple bunkers and they were a bit damp but fine.
The greens were the best thing about this course. Not real fast but rolling true. As the previous reviewer wrote, it would be nice if folks would repair their ball marks. I fixed many ball marks on each green.
Overall and with the exception of the greens, I was disappointed with the conditions. This course needs some work.» Close

Made it up to Bailey Creek for our annual Chico State Alumni tournament. Was so looking forward to it and was not disappointed. Played two days 5/29 & 5/30 with beautiful weather and playing with some very good friends.
Not much to add from my previous reviews because it is in great condition every year. The course just opened from winter on April 19 and the fairways were in excellent shape. Tee boxes also in great shape. Bunkers in great shape. The rough was thick however. Very thick. On two holes you could not see your shoes if you were standing in the rough. That’s not good in my opinion but they are going to address it.
The greens were rolling nicely and about a “10” but were very hard. Held a good shot but it had to be a very good shot. Had to adjust. A couple of the greens were still in recovery from the winter but that should clear up soon.
Cannot say enough good things about this course. Spent two days of golf and I didn’t want it to end. Not a real difficult course but it is a beautiful setting and is never crowded. The guys in the clubhouse were all great as were the folks in the restaurant. Highly recommend!! If you are ever up in this area, you must make it a place to play.» Close
