I enjoy playing new courses as much as possible and will golf anywhere. I like the challenge of tough courses, meeting new people, sunsets, holding hands, long walks on the beach...

A buddy and I played here today, teeing off early at about 6:45 and finishing in 3 hours. We had vouchers from GroupGolfer.com and rode for $32 each. A couple of groups let us by and it was clear sailing. The front nine greens were in better shape and fully healed from aeration, whereas the back nine greens showed some residual evidence of aeration, but putted okay. Fairways were good with nice grass coverage everywhere. Rough was variable in coverage; sometimes thick and sometimes thin. Some of the grass bunker features were a bit scraggly, but overall the course played nice. I was in three bunkers, all of which were nicely groomed, but one was still wet and packed. Tees were mostly good, but a couple had some uneven ground. Not terrible as you could easily find level. Good times and great pace of play.» Close

I played here last Friday, May 11, 2018, at just after 12:00 noon. My nephew and I rode for $48, I think. POP was about 4.5 hours, mostly due to the crowded course. It moved along okay for the most part and since my nephew is really a beginner, it was fine.
The course is great to get your confidence up as well. Despite windy afternoon conditions and sketchy ball striking, I managed to score well (for me).
Greens were slow. Not as bad as in the previous review from mdames, but you really had to give your putts a good whack to get to the hole. They did run fairly smooth, with only an occasional small hop.
Fairways and rough varied from semi-lush to thin and spotty. For the most part you could have a decent lie no matter where you ended up.
I cannot comment on the sand, as we were not in any bunkers.
Tees were mostly level (we played the blue markers) and had a few divots here and there but it was easy to find a good spot to hit from.
We did stop in the "restaurant" afterwards for a couple of burgers and fries. Word of advice, "Don't bother." It was not very good. However, the drinks that the nice, young lady poured were decent (gin and tonic with Bombay Sapphire). Of note: Cat, the bartender, was very easy on the eyes and gave me a slight discount on my drinks. She seemed pleased with all the attention she got from the late afternoon golfers who came in for beers. I'd go back just to order up from Cat. Meow!» Close

Good times today with Ron, Jerry, and the rest of the group. Big thanks to JohnnyGK and RSM for this GK Guru round. The course is currently in great condition overall.
The practice facilities are great here. There is a big putting green and a pitching green with a bunker as well as an all grass driving range.
Greens were putting medium fast. Not many ball marks; maybe a couple that were poorly repaired and a couple small ones that were missed. The greens did hold any well struck shot and it was no problem getting running pitches to stop consistently.
Fairways were nice to look at with the single mow stripe down the middle. Good hitting surfaces overall with only a couple of firm areas.
Rough, well, it's good to stay out of the rough. It was a mix of deep, thick grass to thin lies. If you go outside that, it's as good as lost in some knee-high foxtails.
Bunkers seemed mostly consistent. Good white, sparkly sand but a little on the thin side with only about an inch and a half over hard pan in many bunkers. Not terribly shabby and fairly easy to hit from.
Tees were lush but a couple had a lot of divot damage (par threes, so that was predictable) and a few were not too level at the tee markers. It was not bad by any means, though.
POP was about 4 hours with a little waiting on the groups ahead of us. Unfortunately, for the group behind us, the snack shop stopped food service at 2:30 on a Sunday. I was able to get some tri tip and it was good. Maybe not $13 good, but I needed it and it was tasty.» Close

Played again on 4/13/18 as part of our annual City of Santa Clarita Employee Golf Classic. Teeing off around 8:30 shotgun. I won't mention the horribly slow pace of my fellow employees, but we were eating hamburgers at around 2:00 p.m. The course conditions are about average for this time of year.
Fairways had decent coverage, but seemed a little hard pan under the turf.
Rough was a general mix of thin, dry, hard, and non-existent.
Tees were somewhat level and a little on the firm side. I had a little trouble pushing in my tees on a few holes.
Sand was in need of raking. Many bunkers looked like they have not been groomed for a week.
If you have not played here before, this is an executive size course with a par of 60. There are 7 par 4 holes (1, 4, 7, 9, 10, 15, 16); the rest are par 3 holes, several of which are very short yardages. The best hole is the island green on 17. Hardest holes are 9 and 10, which are very lengthy par 4 holes.
Discounts can be had on all the usual online third party discount sites and through the course itself.
Food and beverage are available, but not cheap for the level of quality.
Nice practice areas and a very popular driving range which is lighted at night.
I'd opt for other courses, but somehow I end up golfing here at least 3 or 4 times a year out of convenience.» Close

I got out today on a GroupGolfer deal, paying about $34 a month or two ago. Although the parking lot looked somewhat full, it was almost clear sailing, teeing off at about 11:30 and finishing at 3:00. The check in was fast and efficient. You can bring your cart into the parking lot to grab your stuff, if that's what you like. I opted for the cart that came with the deal, but this is a very walkable course with just a few elevation changes throughout. It's very scenic with lots of nice views to be had of the nearby hills. There was a nice breeze today, but wind can be a big factor here. Often you will have some down-wind shots that fly like crazy, or have to hit punch shots into a stiff head wind. The course is in fine shape now: Greens were rolling true, medium-to-medium fast (about a 9 I would guess). I fixed a couple small ball marks, but the greens were very nice overall. The fairways and rough were in good shape. Only a couple of thin or bare areas in some of the rough way off the fairways, but good grass coverage most everywhere. I visited a few bunkers and they all had good sand (not too deep) and were nicely groomed. The tees (blue) were all basically level and had good grass coverage. I always enjoy this course and I think the maintenance crew is to be commended for their hard work. Get out there and golf it before aeration or wait a bit. I recommend it!» Close
