Played here for the first time in many years yesterday. I forgot how much i love this course especially when it is good shape. For some reason I always play good here probably because it fits my eye and it just feels right playing here. No homes, fantastic (IMO) layout, great restaurant, great service, and the pace was great. I think the course could definitely be in better shape especially for the amount they charge which was a $65 senior rate. The bunkers had plenty of sand, the tee boxes were all pretty level, the fairways were nice to hit from, and the greens were nice but could use some attention. The were a little furry, had a few patchy areas, and were also a little on the slow side. I saw three holes posted with signs stating these greens are slower than the others due to maintenance. All in all it was a great day of golf and i plan on returning to AT soon.» Close

Back out at Los Robles yesterday at 7:20am and finishing at 11:15 walking. I have to say this course is a joy to play since many holes give you options. The par fives are reachable with good drives, there are doglegs, left to right and right to left holes, short ones long ones, and i just keeps you engaged throughout the round.
Course conditions right now are very good and only getting better. The sand was consistent but had some areas left unraked, the tee boxes were nice and we only found one which was unlevel, the fairways were semi-lush throughout with only a few areas of thin spots, the rough here is a mixed bag due to the bare desert style format they use to save on water, and lastly the greens we fast and smooth but i will say that about 1/2 of them were recently punched with the small holes but still rolled true. You rarely get a straight putt here but the greens are a lot of fun to play. Lastly, at $25 to walk this place is surely worth the money!!!

Had a 6:30 tee time yesterday getting out just before the men's club. We finished in 4.5 hours walking with no waiting. Olivas Links in a little over an hour drive for me so I don't get out there much but I love this course. I wish I lived closer...Playing the blue tees on a calm day is very enjoyable however when the winds blow which is often due to the nearby ocean, this place can be a real challenge. Yesterday was calm most of the day so all was well. Conditions are very good overall right now. There were a few problem areas though. Some tee boxes were placed in unleavened areas and there were areas in the fairways that were thin and a little wet. The course is nice and green with a great feel but I was bummed to see my favorite holes with water hazards were not as expected. The water is gone......sad to see but I understand why. The holes were still nice just not as visually appealing or intimadating. Can't wait to come back though as this is a favorite of mine.» Close

Played here yesterday teeing off at 6:36 am. We finished 18 walking at 10:45 on a perfect so-cal golf day. Rio never really disappoints us. The course has a lot to give. Challenging holes, birdie holes, short and long, risk-reward, and the conditions are always above par. The greens yesterday were very nice and smooth with enough undulations to make 3m footers interesting. The fairways were nice to hit from and the rough and traps were nice and manageable as well. The tee boxes do need a little work though. Although they we fairly level, i found a few to be torn up and cut a little long. One bad thing, there was no cart person and when we finished 9 there was no one in the snack bar as many waited for her to return from wherever she went but she did not arrive in time for us to grab a bit to eat. I hope she is okay and we look forward to returning to Rio........» Close

Played here on 5/14/18 at 8am. We got right out and waited on the first hole but that was it. Pace was perfect at 4 hours. They serve a nice lunch in the restaurant too!
Course conditions were the same as the last reviewer except the greens were not bumpy at all. They were smooth, receptive, and semi fast. Everyone enjoyed putting on them. The course is not super difficult but can be tricky with all the water and slight doglegs. Bunkers were consistent and the course is green and an easy walk. We all had so much fun we are heading back there this Monday!
