I was very fortunate to be invited to play in a tournament here Monday by GK'er allan_grant. Thanks again Allan! Although I grew up literally 5 minutes from Hacienda, Monday was the first time I had ever played it and wow what a treat it was! I've always heard great things about the course and driving by so many times, I was always envious of those that have played it. There's not much to add to previous reviews regarding the conditions. They are what you would imagine for a country club. Fantastic throughout! Tees were like greens. Fairways like carpets. Rough was lush although since we were playing a scramble, we only encountered it once or twice all day. Greens were posted at 10.5 on the sign and I'd say that was accurate. They were pretty firm though. Often taking one big hop before the ball would dig in. They were smooth and a pleasure to putt on. Just ask Allan, he didn't miss a putt all day lol! Only encounters with the bunkers was fishing a couple of wayward shots out but they seemed perfect as well.
The layout of the course is really nice. A lot of variety of holes from long to short, risk-reward, uphill, downhill, dog legs, generous landing zones and a couple that will make you think about where to place the ball. It really had it all. If you have the chance to play Hacienda Country Club so yourself a favor and DO IT!!!» Close

After finishing my round on the Old Course I decided to take advantage of the $10 replay for the Challenge Course. Nothing much to report as the course is in it's usual good to very good condition all the way around. Only complaint is a minor one. Since they added the second larger hole on every green a couple years ago for newcomers, I find that the standard holes are always in the same spot on the greens now. While the course is super fun and challenging for a Par 3 course, I wish they would move the holes around a little more to add some variety.» Close

Late review. Played last Thursday while spending the weekend on the Central Coast. Monarch Dunes aerated their greens for the first time ever last month and while the majority of greens have recovered nicely, there were a couple on the back 9 that still needed some time. They were noticeably slower and bumpier than usual as well as compared to other greens on the course that have recovered quicker. The good news is that the problem childs (#15 & #17) seem to have taken nicely to the punching and are better than I've seen them in a couple years. Fairways had some small areas of distress but they were being tended to by maintenance and should be back to 100% in short manner. Tees, rough, and bunkers are very good as always and the customer service here is always great. No snack cart today but that's ok. Weather was perfect but my game was not. Always recommended when in the area even in it's less than lofty current state. It's still better than the majority of courses around.» Close

Short Version: AVOID
Longer version- I really hate to kick someone when they're down but what in hell happened to this place?? It's not like it was ever great but it was at least your basic muni with a nice layout and tree lined holes. At least the trees are still standing and the layout hasn't changed, but those are the only good points from my round a couple days ago. I'd agree with everything the previous review stated. Tees were ok with decent coverage. Rough was lush near greens but off the fairways was thin and/or bare. Fairways themselves had some decent areas but quite a few burned out and thin areas too. Greens were atrocious! Many were diseased and so bumpy and slow that you're better off putting with a hybrid just to avoid the plinko boards they call "greens". At least the bunkers provided the highlight of the day. One of my playing partners short sided himself and he hit a high flop that came up short...only to BOUNCE out of the bunker and onto the green to about 5 feet! Can honestly say I've never seen a flop shot bounce out of a bunker and onto a green before!
GK consider this your PSA, don't play MCC until it's been verified that conditions have improved. Just know that I won't be the guinea pig!» Close

Something happened today at San Dimas that only be described as a miracle of epic proportions. Tee time of noon as single on a GN hot deal of $25, got there a little early and was paired up with another single and twosome and we were on the 1st tee, balls in the air by 11:45am, shaking hands and walking back to my car at 3:00pm! Yes you read that right! A 3:15 round at San Dimas (home of the 5+ hour round), on an American Golf managed course (home of the fivesomes and 4 min spacing). Someone wake me up because I must be dreaming...
BTW, the golf was fine and conditions were same ol same ol. Greens are outstanding with minimal ball marks & rolling medium fast and true and holding well. Fairways mostly good with a few dry patches. Rough is a grab bag of lush, patchy, bare, penal, not so penal...you get the point. Bunkers fair with mostly good sand but they need a raking. Tees (blues) were poor. They had decent coverage but too many unlevel lies to contend with all day.
To recap: A 3hr 15min round at San Dimas with some waiting on the front 9! That's a typical time for 9 holes on the weekends here. Well I can say it happened once in my lifetime. Never to happen again...» Close
