More about Larry Quintana
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 of seeing your drive striped down the middle or that iron shot that ends up next to the pin. What a feeling, eh? Or better yet, playing a beautiful course with some good friends! I plan to play more as my perspective on life has changed a bit. Being a recent pancreatic cancer survivor made me realize that the good things in life are still out there. Don't want to miss any of it!

Was invited to played Crossings this past week by fellow GK’er Leef2020 who had a guest voucher for $41. Great deal and was very nice of Lee to invite me. As a twosome, we hooked up with a couple of singles. Nice guys but very slow. We fell behind by about a hole and a half and tried to pick it up a bit. Ended up finishing just under 4:30. They just got new golf carts and we were one of the first to use them. Very nice and very comfortable. The GPS is new and state of the art as well and we could have used a lesson on how to use it.
The course is hilly. You stand up on the first tee and its downhill left to right and looks rather daunting. Then come to find the rest of the course is the same way :-) A lot of elevation changes. We caught the afternoon wind which wasn’t real strong but did affect club selection.
Fairways were very nice and in good shape. Downhill, downwind got lots of roll out. Fairways were also pretty generous even though sometimes it doesn’t look too wide standing on the tee box. A couple of fairways were narrow but those fairways were short in length so you didn’t need to hit driver. Regardless, you can’t be spraying drives here otherwise you end up unplayable as the twosome we played with soon found out. There is distance getting between the green and the next tee box. The drive to get from 11 green to the 12 tee box seemingly took a couple of minutes. Cannot even imagine how one could walk this course.
Greens were recovering from aerification and were in good shape. Heavy poa in the afternoon sun however slowed em’ up a bit but they still rolled true. For a change I was only in one bunker and it was in nice condition.
I played well this day but I still found this course challenging. It was nice to have someone with you who has played here before which really helped. Playing without course knowledge here would make a difference. Particularly on #18 which has a blind approach shot. All in all, a great, enjoyable day.» Close

Went out with the GK Guru’s Sunday afternoon, 3/12. Got there late and didn’t have time to warm up but it was nice to hook up and play with SBogey, CPennbo and abbacat. Had a great day. Pretty warm out there. Mid 90’s but felt hotter.
I think Eagle Falls is a great golf course. We played the Hawk tees (white) at about 6100 as the next level up was over 6700. Course is in excellent condition. Fairways were pristine, lush with healthy grass. The rough was thick which swallowed a few of my balls. Tough to find and even tougher to get out of. Greens were lush, were slower than what they looked but they rolled true. Great layout. Some water lining some of the holes which adds to the beauty. A lot of sand out there (not sure how I avoided sand seeing there are quite a few traps out there)
Didn’t have much interaction with the course staff or the restaurant and not much of a club house or restaurant but it is hooked up with the Fantasy Springs Casino which is next to the course. Couldn’t do so this time but want to make a casino visit next time I’m out here. I do want to come back.
Go play Eagle Falls. Thoroughly enjoyable.» Close

Played Wednesday, 3/8 as part a GK Guru outing with gary00 and alan_grant. Great deal and tough to pass up. Thanks johnnygk! Our pace of play was about 3.5 hours. We caught up with a 4 some on the 3rd hole and they let us play through which was great as they fell way back.
Have not played here in several years and was very surprised to see so many cars in the parking lot. Nice to see as the last time I was here, which was also during the week, had very few cars. Great customer service. Walked up to the starter and when I mentioned I was with the GK group, the GM, Dave Garner came out to say hello. It was so nice of him to come out, shake hands and thank us for coming out. Very classy.
Of course, we caught this course on a great day. A little warm but not much wind to speak of. The course is in great shape and is fun to play. Some of the holes were weird, particularly on the back. Pretty narrow and some blind landing areas. Don’t have to use driver on many of the holes. The scenery is fabulous on the back 9. Had to stop and take some pictures.
The course is playing great right now. Fairways were in great shape. Didn’t have a bad lie out there but you can’t be spraying it around or it will be un playable. The rough was thick but was able to get a club on the ball. Tee boxes were fine. Some were being worked on and were covered with sand but for the most part all of the tee boxes were in pretty good shape. I was only in one bunker and it was hard pan. I am guessing the other bunkers were similar.
The greens! Ah the Greens! Well, they were in great shape. Fast and rolled true but were hard. Couldn’t hold em’. Very few ball marks out there so you always had a nice role but there were some undulations with significant breaks.
Having not played this course in several years, I forgot many of the holes and course knowledge is essential here. As such, a big thank you to Alan who was great in guiding us through the course. And thank you Gary for being a great cart partner! All in all a great day out at Cross Creek. This course is a must play.» Close

It has been sometime since I have played Chino Creek so I got up early to take it on. Dennis (one of the great starters around) got me right out to walk solo. There was a 3 some already out on the course and caught em’ on the back but I wasn’t in any hurry at all.
The course is challenging for sure but it is also in really nice condition. Fairways are lush with some patchy spots and holes out there but for the most part, you get a nice lie. The greens are really nice. Smooth and they roll well. Sand traps are in good shape also. I was only in a couple for a change but they are firm but they play nicely.
The rough is very thick and hard to hit out of if you’re in there. You can easily lose balls in there (which I did) so make sure you hit the fairways. There are foot golf tee boxes and holes out there which was interesting to see. I have never seen foot golf played but have noticed some course are accepting it. Whatever it takes to help some of these golf courses stay open is fine by me.
I find this course somewhat challenging (I seem to be saying this a lot lately :>) but enjoyable. It plays longer than posted on the scorecard and you cannot stray off of the fairway because of the thick rough. Not the most beautiful setting but I always have a good time out here.» Close

Had a mid-day doctor’s appointment today (3/1) over in Duarte and decided to play a very early round on one of my favorite muni’s. This was my second time here since they turned over the management to another vendor. The clubhouse house has changed. It’s pretty much empty of items for sale. Creepy actually compared to the way it used to be. Not crowded at all. My God, I remember SA always having a crowd waiting to tee off. Regardless, the starter got me out with a twosome around 6:25. Nice guys but they seemed to keep to themselves talking as they were walking along.
Was also hoping to have a nice breakfast but the restaurant was closed and had a termite tent over it. Not what I wanted to see.
The rain has really helped this course. Very lush. Even the rough which was bone dry the last time I was here, was thick and lush. The tee boxes have improved. The fairways however needed to be cut. Lush and thick and coupled with the morning dew, we got very little roll out. Sand traps were hit and miss. I was in a couple on the front 9 and they were great. Back 9 a different story. Rock hard underneath a very thin layer of soft sand.
The greens, aye yai, yai! What in the world has happened to these greens?? Very chewed up, bumpy and not very green. Some were blotchy (is that a word for greens?). Bumpy rolls, balls never staying on line, terrible! Also, not holding any shots. SA has never been noted for their greens but this is not very good at all. Too bad because the rest of the course is coming back real nicely. I hope they get this under control because I would still like to call this one of my favorite muni's! :-)» Close
