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...

Played here today; teeing off at around 10:00 a.m. using an online tee time from Teeoff.com. We paid $31 to ride. POP was about 4.5 hours with some waiting between shots. I don't have a lot to add to the prior review from t8fish, but I'll try.
Good overall winter conditions and great weather today. Sunny and warm, about 77 degrees with little to no wind. There were many areas of the course that were damp or very wet, especially under the trees or in other shady areas.
We played the blue tees and for the most part they were beat up pretty badly compared to the blacks or whites. Some teeing areas were very thin or muddy due to being in the shade. Not terrible, but maybe its due to the cold temps lately. Overall, they were all mostly level and finding a good spot to tee from was not an issue.
Fairways and rough were decent. Lots of good run out on low struck shots. A few areas were thin or muddy, but it was manageable and the good definitely outweighed the bad. It was almost always easy to hit a good full shot as the ground was fairly soft.
Sand was a mixed bag of good, white, soft sand in most bunkers greenside, but several were more of a dark colored and heavier sand. I was in two bunkers and they were raked and in good condition despite having the darker, heavier sand.
Greens were the highlight of the day. They were soft enough to accept most any kind of shot and ran fairly fast. The hole locations seemed to always be on some very sloping ground and it made for a tricky day putting. Early on, I thought some of the greens were running a little bumpy; however, it's possible it was me not hitting a smooth stroke.
Overall, for $31 I will definitely come back. It's hard to lose a ball here and the length of the course makes for a fun day with the driver and 3-wood, as well as your longer irons. A good variety of holes that makes you think that driver is not always the shot off the tee.» Close

I played last Sunday with the first group of the GK Cup final. Overall, the course is in great shape. The greens were probably the best part of the course. There are a lot of narrow fairways with some severe slopes here and there. I found the angles off the tees to be not in line with my slice and many times I was hitting recovery shots from the right rough and around or under trees. Mostly my fault, as the course is not terribly long and there was substantial run out on many of my poor drives. Hitting less than driver might not be an issue on most of the holes.
I thought the greens were fast and very difficult to read. I'm not sure what was going on, because I played here recently and did not have this kind of difficulty. I missed a few short putts and only one I remember that I pulled it; otherwise, it was just weird breaks that I did not see. I liked the fast greens and they were very soft. Well struck shots would hold but I just was not striking the ball well for the most part. We had plenty of ball marks to fix courtesy of the groups ahead of us.
The tees were good; we played the blues. I don't recall any real issues. Good grass coverage and level.
Fairways and rough were fine. Good turf coverage and great rollout. Like Johnny mentioned, the grass will only get better with warmer weather.
The course has good rates, decent food, and nice conditions. I can recommend playing here and just may try to get this course into my rotation.» Close

Got out early this morning; fourth group, a twosome at around 7:00 a.m. I used a Teeoff.com prepaid tee time for $36 riding. The other guy got an additional 25% off using a promo code. Every time I try to use their promo codes, I am told I have to be a new member. Oh, well. $36 is a great rate for this course. We were a twosome and had a lot of time to practice putt each hole as we did not push the groups ahead. We finished around 11:00 for a 4-hour round.
Cold and damp conditions due to recent rain. Cart path only on Holes 1, 2, 9, 10, 18. The rest of the course was 90 degrees and stay off the wet (dark colored) areas. People seemed to be okay with this ahead of us; mostly it was walkers. Greens dried out a little by the time we hit Hole 13 around 9:30 a.m.
Greens: We fixed a few ball marks almost the whole course. Early morning dew helped out with lines, but skill set didn't kick in all the time. Rooster tail of water on the early morning putts, but gave way to better pace at the end of the round. Good, consistent speed; I would say medium fast at about a 10 as they dried out.
Tees: My playing partner hit from the blacks; I hit from the blues. Good conditions overall. Almost all were flat and level. No excessive divots either.
Fairways: There was dormancy showing, but good surface to hit from. Some areas were wet, but overall not as bad as it could have been. You could see the many fairway drains were doing their job. Good work by the maintenance staff.
Rough: Some areas that were mowed near the fairways were great. If you stray into the really penal stuff, you can almost forget about getting a good shot if you can find your ball.
Bunkers: I was in the fairway bunkers on Holes 12 and 14. They were wet, but maintenance crew did some preliminary raking to help dry them out. It did not help me, though.
It's always good to come to the coast, even in the winter. I recommend Olivas Links right now.» Close

I played here last Friday, 12/13/2019, with a buddy. We used an Underpar voucher, $55 each, including range balls and cart, 18 holes. We played the Canyon Crest/Ridgeline combination. Afterwards, we paid an additional $27 each to play the Creekside 9.
Tees: We played the blues. Really nice conditions with no issues. Good turf, level, hardly any divots.
Fairways and rough: Good turf to hit from. It appears to be a mix of Bermudagrass and has the appearance of being in dormancy. I never had a bad lie.
Bunkers: I was only in one, Creekside 18, and it was bad. I think it was the worst one on the course. There were lots of small rocks, hard pan, and a thin layer of heavy sand which seemed very finely graded. It was not a good experience. My buddy was in another bunker somewhere else and he had no issues.
Greens: Nicely mowed and rolled. The speed was medium fast and rolled true. Most holes had less break than I was reading into, but I liked the good conditions. I fixed a couple of ball marks, but overall it was really good.
Nicely run course and the facilities are very good. I like it here and if I see any more discounts, I will be back.» Close

I played here yesterday, Saturday, December 7. It was a cloudy day here, but the rest of Southern California seemed to be getting some rain. The course was in good shape overall, but due to the recent rains it was cart path only. Much of the lower portions of the course seem to a part of the nearby storm drain system and keeping carts off the swampy areas helps a lot. My buddy and I had GroupGolfer vouchers, $35/each riding. The course was uncrowded, almost empty in fact. We were sent off early, so that's a big plus in my book.
Greens were nice. They were soft and rolled at a medium fast pace. Some poa annua was visible near the end of the round, but putts rolled true. I fixed a couple of ball marks here and there, but nothing terrible.
Fairways and rough were moderately lush. Some greenside rough and on slopes seemed to be very thick and long (Hole 12, notably). You really had to keep an eye on your shots if they were headed to the rough as they could easily be lost. The fairways were very good to hit from. Lots of divots which tells me folks aren't taking the bottle of mix out with them.
Tees were generally good. We played the white tees and although it was mostly flat, some did have uneven ground.
We stopped for a beer at the turn (nice IPA from the local brewery) and later had lunch at the bar. It's a good burger, but I think it was around $15 with fries.
This is a good course and I like to play here often, especially with a discount. In fact, I don't think I have played here without one. Next discount, I will be back.» Close
