I just got back from Glen Ivy Golf Club. I was on the first tee a little bit before 2pm and I am back home writing this review at 6pm so that tells you something about the pace of play today! I have not been to this place in 10 years or more. I am not too sure why I have avoided this place. Most of the time I am worried about the drive on the 15 fwy though Corona, but today I decided to risk it and head down.
I have read that the new ownership has been putting in a lot of work to this facility and it was noticeable as soon as you pulled in. They have just repaved the parking lot. The range has a new cover and has a parking lot right in front of it where you can literally pull your car right up to your stall. Everything looked clean and well maintained. I did not use the range so I cannot comment on its condition. It did look like it was all mats though.
Everyone I spoke to today was very friendly. The starter met me at the bag drop and took my clubs and put them on a cart for me. The guy in the Pro Shop that checked me in was very friendly and even gave the the twilight rate even though I was a bit early. The guy running the cart barn at the end of the round was very friendly as well. Customer service was top notch today. Thank you to everyone that helped me out today. Appreciated. (Sorry I didn't get everyone's name).
The course is in great condition. I had not complaints. The greens, fairways, bunkers, rough, tee boxes - all were in awesome shape. I was pleasantly surprised. The rough was a little spotty in some places but nothing that could not be played out of. Well done maintenance crew.
The layout of the course is very enjoyable. There are a lot of elevation here. There are very few holes that are 100% flat, especially on the back 9. The tee shot on 18 is always a treat. There are houses on a number of holes. The landing areas are pretty generous but it can be a little intimidating on holes like #10 and #13 where you have house down both sides of the fairway from tee to green. If the houses do not bother your game, you will 100% enjoy the layout of the course.
It will not be another 10+ years before I go back to Glen Ivy. Awesome course condition, awesome layout, awesome customer service.....what more could I ask for? If you haven't been to Glen Ivy, go check it out. Good times and thank you again to everyone I encountered today. Well done.» Close

Made it out to Oak Valley today to get a late morning round of golf in on Labor Day. I had a tee time at 11:20 as a single and went out just ahead of the California Baptist University Women's golf Team.
I had the course pretty much to myself. I really didn't have anyone in front of me and I obviously had the golf team behind me, so I had time to get some practice in with my new irons (which was my goal). I hit multiple balls on most holes.
The course is in pretty good shape for the end of summer:
Greens - Very good shape. They rolled very true at medium speed to fast speed. These greens can be very difficult to read. Most of the greens have multiple level or shelves that can make putting very difficult. When they are rolling at tournament speed, these greens are brutal (in my opinion).
Bunkers: I was in a couple of bunkers today. One was a fairway bunker and one was a green side bunker. Both had very good coverage and were easy to play out of. No complaints.
Fairways and Rough: Both were in decent shape for late summer. The fairways were actually really good and much better than I expected them to be. On the shots that I had from the fairway, I did not have a bad lie all day. The rough was a bit thin in some areas and looked like it had suffered a little bit from the summer heat. As I always say, hit the ball in fairway and you wont have to deal with the issues with the rough :).
Tee Boxes: This was probably the weak spot of the course. The tee boxes on the par 3's were absolutely horrible. It was tough just to find a clump of grass to hit off of. These boxes were also really uneven. The par 4 tee boxes also needed some work from what I remember. The tee boxes on the (4) par 5's were actually in the best shape. If they do something with the tee boxes on the par 3's, I think this course could be up there with the best in IE.
Overall a fun day at Oak Valley. I am not sure why this place does not get more play than it does. It may be the location or the difficulty of the course The layout is fun but can be quite challenging. There are houses on this course but most or really out of play unless you hit a wild shot. I would highly recommend this course. It is about a 45 minute drive for me but it is well worth it. Go check it out if you are in the area. You will not be disappointed.» Close

Went out and played Canyon Lake Country Club yesterday for the first time. I got an invite from my bother-in-law who lives in the Canyon Lake community. This course was fully private but recently became open to the public. The club house is outside of the guard shacks of the community so you do not have to worry about checking in with them to get to the course.
I expected this course to be a flat, tree lined course, winding through the Canyon Lake community. I didn't really expect it to be in great shape since they had to go public. To me, this meant they were not getting much play so the course conditions could be a little rough due to a lack of funds. I was completely wrong.
The course is very hilly. Besides a couple of par 3's, there is not a flat hole on this course. I had asked about walking this course (I enjoy walking) and there is no way I would walk this place. There are also a lot of dog leg holes. I was lucky to have my brother-in-law with me because I had no idea where we were going on some holes.
The course conditions were very good - far better than I was expecting. The fairways, tee boxes, and greens were all in excellent shape. I was in 3 bunkers and all 3 were perfect. They were some of the best bunkers I have ever played. Big thumbs up to the maintenance department here. Well done. Also, the course does have a grass driving range. It is relatively small but it does the job.
The downside to this course is that it is extremely narrow on some holes. Most holes are lined on both sides with houses and the other holes are lined on both sides with trees. If homes make you nervous, this may not be the course for you. If you hit the ball relatively straight, you will enjoy the layout.
I will say that is was obvious that we were not from the Canyon Lake community. Everyone that was playing had their own golf cart. We were the only ones that had a rented cart! We really stuck out.
If narrow courses do not scare you, go give this course a try. Each hole is unique and I never got the feeling like "didn't we just play this hole?" I would definitely recommend this course to anyone and I will be back.» Close

Went out today and played Arrowhead CC. I was looking for a place that looked pretty wide open for a Sunday morning where I could play by myself and get some practice in. Looked on GolfNow and it looked like the course was pretty open. Once I arrived, I was able to go out as a single and had a fairly large gap to the groups in front of me. It was perfect.
This is an old school golf course. The fairways are pretty narrow and tree lined throughout the course. Most of the holes are parallel to each other with the tee boxes and greens VERY close to one another. If you are offline a bit of your approach shots, you could be doing a lot of yelling during your round. If you like old school golf courses, this is definitely the place for you. The course was a fully private golf course up until a few years ago.
The course was in pretty good shape for the amount of heat that we have been having. The fairways were in good shape - very payable. The rough had a few bare spot but nothing extreme. The tee boxes were probably the roughest part of the course. Some were pretty uneven and patchy but nothing you couldn't work around. The tee boxes are almost 100 years old so, when you think about it like that, they are in very good shape :)
The greens here can be tricky, especially if you have not played here before. Most are sloped pretty severely from back to front. A lot of them had large humps and bumps in them that can make putts difficult. All of the greens rolled well and had pretty minimal ball mark damage.
All in all, a good day of golf. I would recommend this course to anyone that likes those tree lined type golf courses. It is not really my favorite style of golf course but I still had a lot of fun playing. Nothing to complain about!» Close

It is a couple days late but I made the drive up to Sierra Lakes on Thursday, 8/8. Been a while since I have made my way out there. It wont be that long next time!
The layout at Sierra Lakes is excellent. It is actually one of my favorites in the IE. The course does wind through a housing tract but most of the fairways are quite generous and the surrounding houses don't really come into play unless you hit a really errant shot.
As the previous reviewer mentioned, it does look like the course is dealing with some issues between the edge of the fairways and the rough. There were quite a few bare spots in these transition areas - really on all holes or just about every hole. Not sure what has happened. That being said, it is obvious that the course is doing what they can to get these areas back to the usual Sierra Lakes standards so Kudos to them.
Besides these few areas, the course was in great shape. The greens were great. They were fairly firm and fast but they did hold shots well.
I was in two green side bunkers and both had about an 1" of great sand in them but were a little firm under that initial layer. They were very playable - not complaints. I am sure the bunkers are not easy to maintain here with all of the wind the course gets.
Besides the bare spots that I mentioned above, the fairways and tee boxes were in great shape. My group agreed that we could "bump" our ball in these areas and and it worked out just fine for everyone. Don't let this small negative discourage you from giving Sierra Lakes a go.
I will definitely be back soon. I should not have waited so long to come back! Also, you can sign up for their emails and get some discounted rates.» Close
