Played here on Sunday, Nov. 19. paid $32 on a Groupgolfer.com deal (after 10:30 on weekends). No range balls as their machine was inoperable, but I wasn't going to hit anyway. Got out between groups as a twosome when I was joined by another single on tee 1. Pace of play was about 4:15.
There was a small delay on the last hole when my playing partner did not wait until everyone was in their carts. From 245 yards he hit his 5 wood and it sailed to the right and hit the last guy walking to his cart. Dropped him like a rock. I don't think there was any permanent damage as this was a big boy and it hit off his chest. After all the finger pointing, yelling, cussing, and apologizing, I looked at the ball on the ground and asked my partner if he was playing a Titleist 1. He said he was done; I went back and played out with the group behind.
Aside from all that nonsense, I felt the course is currently in a rather good condition. Nice green fairways and rough. Nothing too tight in the fairways and nothing too severe in the rough. It was really nice to hit from most locations on the course with adequate turf under my ball. There were some bare areas on the left side of hole 13, but it's always been that way. I was not in any bunkers but they all looked great with glistening, white sand. Tees were mostly level and had very few divots. Good sand/seed/mulch mix in cart bottles and on tee boxes.
Greens were great overall. They rolled fast and smooth; they were soft enough to leave deep ball marks on high shots and well-struck shots would stick like glue.
It was a nice day overall, with cool temperatures and almost no wind or breeze. There had been a hard frost overnight, but by my tee time it was all good.» Close

Played here today with fellow GKers, mdames and t8fish, teeing off around 9:45 using the GK Coupon that is available now. $39 Includes green fees, range balls, cart, and $15 food and beverage in the clubhouse. I think that is a great deal The food was good ( I had a great burger and a salad instead of fries) and they have one of my favorite beers on draft: Angel City IPA. As for the golf, there is a lot of good.
I have played this course many times over the course of several decades. it's a lot greener than it used to be. Grass growing where it should be growing. I had only a couple of tight lies and one or two areas off the rough was dry. A couple of areas were overly wet, though.
The tees were mostly level. Some areas were full of divots, but you could easily find a good spot to hit from. Part of the quirkiness of the course is that it's tight off the tee and pin placements can be tough on shots that need room.
The rough varied from deep fescue, kikuyu, or Bermuda grass to well-mowed, or dirt. It was penal enough, but not overly so.
The traps looked good. I was in one and it was good to hit from; even made a sand save par there on 13.
The greens were good for the most part. Smooth and fairly fast, especially downhill. Soft enough to leave plenty of ball marks which we fixed. There were a couple of greens with damage or problem areas: #2 at the front, right had some bare ground and poor repairs; #7 had problems along the back edge, 11 had some stressed turf on the ridge. That's all my memory will let me remember. Other than those areas, the greens were probably as good as I can remember.
All in all, for $39 we got a good value from the GK coupon. However, mdames said he simply walked the course for $15 senior rate, so that's a good deal also.» Close

Played here Friday morning with fellow GKer, sr129, and a buddy of mine. We were second group out at 7:16 a.m. Nice weather: cool morning temps and no wind up to a slight breeze. The greens have healed up from last month's aeration. They rolled nicely and were somewhere around medium fast speed. Very soft with several ball marks per green. The fresh ball marks were very easy to fix; you didn't even need a tool or tee most of the time. The fairways were very nice with good coverage and great lies. Same with the rough. Some areas were thicker than others, but mostly not terribly penal unless you found the deep native areas. Bunkers had plentiful white and soft sand. Pace of play was around 4 hours for our group. We did let a faster group through at the turn and it worked out well for everyone.» Close

Played here Sunday morning, second out as a single following a single. It was my first time here and I think this course could be in better shape. In order to give that other single some space and to warm up, I played two balls on most holes. The course seems to need some more maintenance than it is receiving currently. The golfer ahead of me was a local who said many of the maintenance people are no longer there. First tee time was at 7:30 a.m., right after the kid on the greens mower. I saw one other maintenance person who was watering a couple of greens by hand. Other than that, there was only the cart barn guy and the starter at check in.
The greens were fast; maybe around 10 and definitely faster toward the ocean.
Fairways were somewhat inconsistent: some were a bit shaggy and needed mowing. It wasn't terrible, but you could tell. Also, there were several areas that were either too dry or too wet.
Rough was also inconsistent. Some areas of thick grass or really thin and dry. Also, areas that were too dry or too wet. If it was wet, then that did not get mowed and was roped off. The left side of 10 looked like a water hazard, but it was just mucky, wet, and roped off.
Bunkers were also inconsistent and a little crappy. Most had a thin layer of dark, fine sand. Some were wet or had rocks. They had not been raked and some had footprints from a day or two ago. A fairway bunker on the back side of 10 had piles of debris and grass that covered the entire bunker; you could not tell that the bunker was there until you were on top of it. It seemed to be a major part of the design of the hole and now it was totally neglected. Too bad.
Overall, I liked the course. There is a lot of character to it. Many forced carries on the back nine. Maybe a little tight in places, but if you can hit a straight shot you will be okay. You don't even have to be long. As part of a resort, there could be some more love put into the course to attract more people. There are deals out there, so if you are in the area check it out.» Close

I played here this afternoon, teeing off at around 11:30 a.m. I had made a Teeoff.com tee time for $21 riding at 11:53. It was wide open (strange) and I got off 20 minutes early after hitting a few range balls and a couple of putts. Fairly nice conditions on this short par 60. Nice coverage in the fairways and rough with only a couple of tight lies and a couple of overly-wet areas due to sprinkler malfunction. All the greens were nice. Not too many ball marks and rolling smooth and medium-fast. All the bunkers seemed to have plentiful light colored sand that was nice to hit from. I caught up to a foursome at hole 6, but then I started playing three balls and they move along nicely until quitting at the turn. Then I caught another twosome at 12, but went back to hitting extra shots and those guys moved along fairly quickly. I finished in about 2 1/2 hours, so that was a good pace. Not a bad afternoon for $21.» Close
