Played here 2/12/2017 with fellow GK members Nat P., Jon P., and all the way from Michigan Bill A. using an UnderPar deal for $90 each with a free replay round. Unfortunately today was a tale of highs and lows with Journey. The course was nearly immaculate; every aspect was dripping in lush green conditions and visually stunning....however the entire course was C.P.O. and made for a round that was a few minutes short of 6 hours. It was by far the longest round of golf I have ever played and had it not been for the perfect conditions and amazing company, this would have been a complete waste of a trip. The entire property is under construction so getting to the course was a bit tricky too. The actual course condition review:
Tee-boxes: The "worst" aspect of the course but they were still in good condition. There wasn't much in the way of chewed up boxes and because the course offers several tee options, I think the turf sees far less damage than the courses that only have Red/White/Blue.
Fairways: Absolutely stunning. The recent rains really left them in great shape. Not muddy and not soggy, granted there wasn't a heck of a lot of roll but the lies were all great.
Rough: Wonderful condition but tough to hit out of. The biggest test at this course is always the areas just outside the rough, but the rough itself was still penal.
Bunkers: I was only in two but both has good sand coverage that allowed for good shots. Ample rakes in each and they looked to be taken care of.
Greens: Wonderful roll and pretty quick in my opinion. A shame to see so many groups leave marks on them though without the slightest desire to fix. Visually not as great as the rest of the course but they really rolled true.
ETC: Staff was extremely friendly. Carts here are top-class with wonderful GPS. Waters, towels, and coolers all provided. Cart girls were ever present. Didn't see a single marshal though I am not sure that would have prevented slow play today. 6 hour round made it hard to enjoy to its fullest and CPO all day led to serious fatigue on a course that couldn't offer walking as an option even if they wanted to. Food options at the turn and in the restaurant were tasty. On a great deal, this is one of the best in So. Cal.» Close
