I got to play here for the first time with T8fish (review below) in our GK Cup match. Before our match, he assured me I would enjoy the course, and I sure did. The course has a good practice/warmup facility, with a grass driving range, big putting green, and a separate chipping green. We had a tee time for 2:44 pm on Saturday but were able to tee off a little early due. We had no one in front of us up until the fourth hole. We had moderate waiting the rest of the round, with the pace of play finishing at 4.25 hours.
I really enjoyed the layout of the course. The design does a great job of forcing you not only to think about your present shot, but how best to set up the next shot. It also allows you to use all the clubs in your bag. T8fish's review does an excellent job describing the conditions. Fairways were clean with no unfilled divots or bare spots. At times, the rough could be very thick. Did not see any bare spots in the rough. I was in one green-side bunker, which was a little more firm than I prefer. Greens were smooth and medium-fast. I did see a few unrepaired ballmarks on the greens.
Overall, I highly recommend this course. I had a great time and cannot wait to be back.» Close

First time playing this course and I really enjoyed the layout, with each hole providing a satisfying balance of risk and reward. It has a good range of holes, including a par 4 with an island green, holes with many fairway and greenside bunkers, and a nice mix of short and long par 4s. The last three holes are some of the best finishing holes I have played. I was able to get a tee time for $55 through Forelinx on Saturday at 8:12 am.
POP: Pace of play was not great. It was a bad sign when our group reached the second hole tee box and there was a backup of 3 groups. This really is inexcusable, and the blame lies solely with the starter. They really need to space out the tee times better. The waiting continued on practically all of the holes. When the marshall came by, we advised him of how slow the pace was. He responded by stating our group was behind even though we had been right behind the group in front of us the entire round. We just rolled our eyes and continued on.
Tee boxes: Never had an issue. Always found a nice piece of grass to hit off and always level.
Fairways: For the most part, fairways were dry and tight. Good drives always got nice roll. There were a few holes that had punched fairways.
Rough: Rough was mixed. At times thick and at other times thin.
Bunkers: I found two fairway bunkers, which were slightly firm but were not not an issue. On one hole I saw standing water in some greenside bunkers.
Greens: Greens had a few unrepaired ball marks and were a little slow. However, most putts rolled true.» Close

Played in the afternoon on May 17th. A colleague of mine is a member here, and I was his guest. This is the oldest private golf club in Riverside and has a beautiful clubhouse and golf shop. The staff are all very friendly and the food is great.
If you ever have a chance to play here, I recommend it.
The layout of the course has many fun and challenging holes. The back 9 plays much more difficult than the front. The tee boxes were perfect. They were level and had plenty of grass. The fairways and rough were as good as you can ask for. I found a few greenside bunkers and they were relatively soft, but there were a few spots that were firm. The greens were very quick and always rolled true.» Close

Teed off at 6:43 a.m. as a solo. The course has a good grass driving range and two putting greens, so there is ample room to warm up. Was originally intending on playing the course's other 18 hole course, called "Butterfield Stage." However, when I checked in the starter politely recommended I play Chino Creek because it was wide open with no groups in front of me. I appreciated the heads up, as I was able to finish my round in 3 hours.
The greens have now fully healed from the aeration they did a little over a month ago. There were a few unrepaired ball marks. However, every putt I had rolled smooth.
The fairways were in decent condition. There were a few tight lies and some with ample grass. I happened to find the sand often this round and did not have a problem with their conditions. There was only one green-side bunker that was a little firm, but it was still manageable.
The rough is just so-so. There are some spots of just dirt, and others areas that have about 2 inches of grass.» Close

Played here early Saturday morning, 4/7/18. I was the third group out, so pace of play was not a problem. I finished in about 3.5 hours. Staff were all really friendly. This was my first time playing this course, so I struggled with course management and club selection. This course is extremely narrow, with many holes having steep hills filled with thick brush and bushes bordering the fairways. If you are inaccurate off the tee, you will be punished.
Gary00 has done a good job detailing the overall conditions here. I did not have any bad lies in the fairways or rough. I did see some thin spots in the rough, but I never had any problems. The greens were exceptional. Every putt rolled true and fast. Was in one greenside bunker and it was firm and damp.
One thing of note is that the course now plays as a par 69 from the blues. They appear to be doing construction on the original 5th and 6th holes. Thus, they now have had to incorporate those two holes into the other 16 holes they have on the course. This means they split a par 5 into a par 3 and par 4. They also made a longer par 4 into a very short par 4 and short par 3. Despite these modifications, I still found the course fun.» Close
