I joined the Guru group yesterday, teeing off right around noon. I'll be honest, Moorpark CC isn't my favorite course for various reasons (layout etc,) but the course is in absolutely spectacular condition right now. Everything is greeen, green, green! Tee boxes are all lush and level. The fairways are still a bit wet from the rain in some places, hence the reason for cart path only yesterday. The fairways are green and lush, with the ball sitting up beautifully. The rough is extremely thick and penal right now. I found myself having to lay up multiple times because of the thickness of the rough. The greens had just been double cut and rolled, and were pretty fast...probably 11 on the stimp. They had just put a top coat of sand on, but that didn't affect the ball from rolling perfectly true. Actually, the sand helped us see some of the lines for putts from where other balls had rolled. Kviser used this to his advantage, and put on a putting clinic for Mike, Matthew and I. He dropped at least 4 bombs from outside 20 ft. Great job Kevin!
Overall, we had a great time yesterday. Moorpark CC is a top-notch facility with everything you could need to have an awesome day of golf. If this style of course is your thing, don't walk, but RUN to Moorpark right now! I think it's only going to get better as things start to dry out a bit. Thank you to Johnny and Moorpark CC for a great day!» Close

Walked the blacks Sunday morning with some friends teeing off at 8:32. POP was a bit slow at around 4:45, but the day was beautiful so it wasn't that bad. The course seems to drain pretty well, but there were 6 or 7 holes that were cart path only. The other holes they were requesting carts use the 90 degree rule.
All things considered with the rain, the course is in fantastic shape. Lush and green as far as the eye can see. Tee boxes were all level and cut nicely. Fairways were very consistent and lush. There were some soggy lies, and a few places with standing water, but were very nice to hit from. If necessary, we did play lift, clean and place to remove mud. The rough is thick and lush, and hadn't been cut in a few days so it was a bit long and penal. Traps were very good, with no water standing in any of them. I found myself in quite a few traps during the round, and all were beautifully raked and maintained. The sand was a bit heavier than normal, and I did have multiple balls that completely imbedded in the sand. The greens were great, but were very soft. They had cut them that morning and were running around 10.5, holding lines nicely without too many bobbles.
Service is always great at Los Robles. We saw the beverage cart at least 6 times during the round. Something to note when it's been raining...my wife played Los Robles the day before I did (Saturday) and because of all the rain the night before, they had closed down the driving range. It was open for us Sunday morning, but I called early to check and make sure. I have a feeling the range closes often when it's wet because they can't get the picker out.
Overall, I definitely recommend Los Robles right now. I can't wait to get back after it's dried out a bit!» Close
