I have a great love affair with the game of golf and all the amazing experiences, friendships and challenges it brings. I tend to play most of my golf as a single and love the random people I get to meet through the game. Just like everyone else here I take the game seriously but the most important thing for me is to really appreciate the time I get on the course and the time I get to spend with good people. There's a good chance that I'll have a fine craft beer or two during a round so if anyone is looking for a game and a couple pints, I'm all in!

Tee'd it up with the GK Guru group on 5/19 on a gorgeous day in Fallbrook. The Golf Club of California has always been one of my favorite layouts in the county but there had always been some struggles when it came to the conditions that just took off some of the luster.
That could not have been farther from the truth this time around as I thought the conditions were the best I've ever played them. Fairways, although firm and fast, provided great lies all day. I was in one bunker and the sand was great. Seemed like everyone in the group who ended up in one did alright. Tees were solid with good coverage and never had an issue with finding a good spot to tee it up. I thought the rough was kind of the typical SoCal drought-era rough with it typical pretty short and easy to hit from, but sparse in spots, which is fine. Definitely not penal in the "lush" sort of way.
The highlight for me were the greens. I thought they were darn near perfect. They held great, ran true (although the kept breaking away from the hole, which was weird) and semi-fast. I was really impressed.
Service out there was cool and it's such a good environment to play in. I really can't say enough about the layout as you get such a variety of holes. You should absolutely throw this one in the rotation or make it a must play right now. I love this course and will be going back soon.» Close

Played in a SCPGA event on May 3rd on a hot and windy day.
This was my first time out at Bear Creek and I absolutely loved the place. I really didn't know what to expect going in as I hadn't done much research on it. Driving in you wouldn't know what a high end neighborhood it is. There are some serious homes on this course!
They have a pretty big clubhouse and awesome practice area. Obviously this course was designed to host tournaments and it really set up great for that. The range was perfect with great grass and tons of targets, practice greens were perfect and provided all sorts of putts you get on the course and plenty of great short game shots. Kind of practice area you'd love to hang out all day at.
I absolutely loved this layout. There are a great variety of holes that lets you work every club in the bag. Off the tee there's pretty ample room but the greens were pretty severe with some tough bunkering so in my opinion its where the course gets its teeth.
I felt the course was definitely in good shape. The tee boxes were absolutely perfect. Lush, tight grass and always level. The greens had probably been punched and sanded somewhat recently but rolled pretty well. Towards the end of the day they became a bit bumpy but you can tell that they are going to be awesome soon. The fairways were an interesting type of bermuda, but provided great lies to hit from. You can take some massive divots out there!
I really felt it was a treat to be able to play this course. If you get a chance definitely get out there, just a really cool golf experience.» Close

Played Friday, 4/28 teeing off at 8 am on a beautiful day. We used a voucher Gary had from Costco and it was $40 per player with cart which is an ABSOLUTE STEAL.
Arrowwood has to be one of my favorite courses around and I kept mentioning I had no idea why it had been so long since I played there. The course provides and incredible variety of holes and you end up really having to hit every club in the bag. I was also reminded that the greens provide some interesting breaks as I couldn't get a read on them all day, but I do like that feature as it provides a lot of play to get comfortable out there.
As for the course conditions, Arrowwood might be in the best shape that I can remember. The fairways are absolutely perfect in my opinion. Cut short and tight to give you some roll out there but enough cushion under the turf to be able to really get after it. I had nothing but perfect lies all day long. The rough here isn't too penalizing, and I'm glad it's there to slow down some drives headed for the native areas, but I found that chipping/pitching out of it around the greens really added some difficulty as getting any kind of spin is pretty tricky.
The greens here might not be visually perfect, but they performed great. I'd say they were probably 10.5-ish on the stimp and really smooth. They did hold shots hit well but also provided a bit of run-out which I like because there are a few holes where you can play off slopes to get at pins. Really fun.
The crew at Arrowwood always provides great service. I've never had an issue with pace of play out there as we saw a Marshall several times and I think they do a pretty good job tracking POP and keeping on people. The pro shop crew is always efficient and the starter out front keeps things running really smoothly.
I would highly recommend Arrowwood right now and I will be back to play there very, very soon.» Close
