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

I played here on Saturday morning, teeing off at around 10:00. It's a pretty straightforward desert course that winds along the back side of a residential neighborhood. There is a good distance to the houses, so I was not worried about hitting one (which I have done before on other courses). I was a single and was placed into a foursome that included another single and a twosome that was the tail end of a small tournament. Unfortunately, the pace of play was excruciatingly slow and I had to leave at the turn for a family event. Sucks to only play nine holes. It was 2 hrs. and 45 minutes for the front nine and no sign of the pace speeding up. Overall, the course was in good late-summer condition. Good coverage from tee to green; nicely mowed fairways and rough. I don't think I ever had a thin lie anywhere. The sand was medium soft and plentiful in both fairway and greenside bunkers. The greens held most shots and rolled medium fast and true. No ball mark damage. It was about $68 with tax to ride. No GPS on carts. We saw the beverage cart three times in nine holes. It was okay, but with other courses nearby I might consider my options in the future; however, at this time of year options are limited due to major maintenance on many courses.» Close

I played here yesterday morning on a voucher purchased from GroupGolfer.com ($32 riding). It was fairly busy for a Friday morning; maybe it's always like that here (not really knowing since it's been many months since I last played here). The good part: the grass is nice, green, and lush where they are growing it. Outside the fairways and immediate rough, it gets sketchy. Many years ago, there were grassy knolls between the holes. Then they shaved them all down and made large waste areas. Now, if you are off the fairway, you could be in anything from thick rough, grass bunkers, clumpy grass, or just plain dirt. It looks like they conserve water further from the fairways. That being said, the fairways and first cut of rough are lush. In some areas, too lush. There were more than a couple of areas in the fairways that were overly wet and not properly roped off, resulting in damage due to carts or mowers creating deep, muddy ruts. A couple of these were due to leaky sprinklers. Mostly, though, the fairways were very nice. Good coverage, green, and great to hit from. Good sand and mulch in the cart bottles. Bunkers were nicely raked and had good amounts of quality sand. Greens were very good; few ball marks, rolling medium fast and true. Pace of play was slow at about 4.5 hours. It was a nice day with slight breezes that varied in direction and speed from a gentle wind out of the east in the morning, to a somewhat stronger wind out of the northwest around noon, then back to a gentle southwest breeze in the early afternoon. Good times for $32!» Close

I played here last Sunday, late afternoon. I made a last minute tee time with the course for three players and was offered 3:55 p.m., $27 riding. Quite windy all afternoon into the evening, but we enjoyed the cool ocean breeze. Decent pace of play, finishing right a 7:35 after jumping past a slow group on the short par 3 15th hole. The course conditions were very good: greens were medium fast, smooth, and soft enough to accept good shots. Fairways and rough were consistently good with great lies everywhere. I found a couple of bunkers and the sand was plentiful and soft. Highly recommended over most everything else in the area.» Close
