Played TC at 12:32pm, going out as a twosome due to a cancellation in the foursome. A sunny, very warm day with a light breeze, up to a 1 club wind at times.
After playing behind a pokey foursome for 8 holes, they finally decided to let us play through after they finished the 8th. (Note: the marshal had told them on the previous hole that they needed to wave us up on the par 3 7th and then let us tee off on the 8th ahead of them, as there was a hole open) They ignored his instruction, but then the cart girl came by at the 8th green, and they clearly decided to spend some extra time chatting her up. Thank God for cute cart girls ;-) POP ended up being 4 hours for us, and I saw them stroll into the bar 45 minutes after we finished.
Conditions on the course were fair to poor. They are doing a good job watering and trying to keep most areas green. However, due to the high level of watering, they are not cutting the grass on the tees or greens very often. It was a hairy mess out there today. Several extra fairways/portions of were roped off to carts. Rough wasn't bad, pretty much normal.
Greens were cut nicely, were firm but oddly did not hold the ball well. They were heavily pock-marked with old ball marks and putted medium speed today.
Was in 3 sand traps, and the greenside ones were firm and damp. The softest one was a fairway bunker, wouldn't you know it.
Compared to last year at this time, TC is hanging in there pretty well. But, it's taken a dive in the 9 days since I was here last, mostly due to the lack of mowing. Still a few dry/burnt areas to work through. Probably will come back in late September and things will be better.
A good day overall, really enjoyed getting around in 4 hours on the course for a change. Eric and Martine in the Bar always take good care of their customers.» Close

Back at The Crossings on Thursday, 8/10 for another roll through paradise. Course was in great condition, greens were even improved from just 10 days ago. Nicely cut, they were smoother and faster. Ball could easily get away from you on downhill putts. Soft and receptive from heavy watering, they held the ball well, and it was easy to make and repair ball marks.
Fairways provided plenty of roll and the ball sat up nicely, as usual. A light breeze kept things lovely and added/subtracted about 1 club. Rough was choppy and inconsistent. White tee boxes were mostly good. #3, #10, #14 and #17 could be more level/better condition, however. No water jug until the 6th hole, which is too long.
Played as a 3some with two fun guys who were 'fast' / rushed players, but waited on pretty much every shot. Things were moving along, just a lot of people on the course. Still, POP was 4hrs 35mins in the end, as things did speed up over the last 4 holes.
Played/scored my best round here, so very happy with the day. Service was very friendly by all staff. Marshals are very engaged with the golfers here, which is nice. Saw the cart girl just once. Ashley provides attentive service in the 19th hole.» Close

Played Monday, August 7, after the Costa Mesa City Championship over the weekend. Course was in very good condition, particularly the greens. Receptive and smooth. Fairways were cut haphazardly, and as long as you were in the mowed section, they were great and provided decent roll.
Noticed very few GUR areas marked off for the tournament, reminding me of yet another reason that it was a good thing I didn't play in it - I'd be too tempted to roll it out or call a rules official to assess if a rabbit burrowed the hole. (Lots of good scoring on the scoreboards, I wouldn't of had a chance even with handicap - in addition to legit good scoring, there always seems to be a few sandbagging 9-11 handicaps who miraculously score two consecutive rounds of only 4-over par - yea, right).
White tee boxes were wide and easy enough to find a good, level spot, #4, #6, #12, #17 holes being the few exceptions to the rule, but even there, you get by.
Sand was decent, a bit wet at times. I got a fried egg lie in a bunker on #11, but was able to get a sandy - so... the sand was fantastic! ;-)
A great, sunny, weather day. Played as a 3some. POP was longer than a Monday normal due to a pokey 4some in front of us - 4hrs 45mins.
19th hole offers decent atmosphere, just don't bring up Trump's poll ratings. Some guy named Mike will bite your head off.» Close

Was able to grab a 2pm $40 round with 3 other singles on Saturday, 8/5. Sunny, warm day with enough breeze to make it nice. POP was 4hrs 30 mins, with a 2hr back nine.
Course has been getting some water in the 10 days since I last played, and they have roped off a few portions of fairways to keep carts away. Overall, the fairways were nice, and cut nicely, and provided some nice roll-out. Still a number of thin/burnt areas in the fairways and rough. Noticed they have re-sodded some fairway/fringe areas around the greens. They are hard at work to keep conditions up. Things look good, and are decent considering the heat. Much better than last year at this point.
Greens were soft, good coverage, and held shots well. Putts rolled at medium speed, but were mostly bumpy from the day's foot traffic and there were a ton of unrepaired ball marks on the front portions of various greens. A major step below what I played at SJHills two days earlier!
The cart girl came by once on the 3rd hole. Saw the marshal a few times. A good day out, and nice that TC moved the late $40 twilight time to 2pm for Creek Card members a bit early in the season. Certainly worth the greens fee.» Close

Played SJH Thursday, Aug. 4th at 1:20pm as a 2some, joined by a single on a warm, sunny day, with up to a 1-club wind at times. We had typical waits throughout the front 9, then things opened up starting on hole 11. POP ended up being a tad over 4rs:30mins. Rate was $39pp via their website.
They are in the middle of adding a new proshop building, they've eliminated the small putting green by the 1st tee and are re-working the area around the clubhouse. Not sure what the net-gain will be, but there is activity there, and obvious $$ being invested.
The remaining large putting green was exceptionally smooth and firm. Wasn't as fast as expected, but seemed almost artificial in terms of how near-perfect the grass looked.
The large greens (rated a 9) have only been matched/surpassed this year for my play by Chardonnay's greens in the Napa area as for condition and true roll. Yesterday they were a tick better than Black Gold and The Crossings, PGA West, etc. Up for debate, I am sure. The point is, they were great. They were very smooth, receptive and fast. Ball rolled very true. Spike marks were minimal, and ball marks were manageable. All three in our group rolled in multiple 15-30 foot putts that tracked very nicely before going in. It is so nice when you read a putt of length, pick a spot, hit it there and the ball does exactly you expected, without any drama along the way to the hole.
Since the last time I played here in January, they've added new sand to most of the greenside bunkers, and they were pretty loose but also heavy. A few that had the old sand, were firm and sometimes wet/muddy. They most notably removed/re-designed bunkers around the 16th and 17th greens. Overall, I gave the bunkers a 6 - they really look good, but need some more time to settle in, or me to get used to them.
The white tee boxes were fair/good, with a handful that are on a perpetual slant, and most bothersome, 14 & 18, both par 3s, are a mixture of mini-mounds, impossible to get a level stance. With all of the money they are investing in other places of the course/clubhouse, I'd hope they get around to simply re-grading these holes.
Fairways and rough were fair/good, but unremarkable. Mostly decent lies. Usual level of GUR on the course today.
Sadly, no cart lady to be seen. Had to wait until the turn to get some beers. Saw a marshal twice.
Glad to have played here after a six month absence. Playing from the whites, the course is manageable for my game and provides a good variety of holes/clubs to use. Greens are the centerpiece here. My playing partner, who hadn't played the course before, says she'd absolutely like to play it again.
19th hole is great here after the round, with a few happy hour food specials. Sweet potato fries are great. They had a quiet Thursday evening, with a sole Saxophonist serenading the folks on the patio - sometimes they have more lively groups playing.» Close
