Played my home track today. Course punched greens 10days ago. They need another 7-10 days for complete healing. Always tranquil and enjoyable at Cross Creek. Staff is awesome. Course is being worked on hard by greens crew. 2 weeks and course will be top notch. The greenskeeper deal is best deal going. Looking forward to Temecula valley am April 29th. Course is a 6.5 right now. Trending to an 8.5 by end of month.

Third off in the morning with a finish of a little of four hours. Those who play here know that a quick round is usually not going to be the case. The staff knows of Mr. GK here very well! The tees were all in nice shape with a few being a little sloped and thin. The fairways look very green and are in real good condition but most were very firm with large bounces and roll (not always in the right direction). The grass in the fairways was thick from the recent rains and kept the ball up nicely for approach shots. The rain also has made the rough treacherous to hit from but it will keep most off line shots in play (just very difficult to play from). The green side rough is also extremely thick and swallows up shots that do not find the putting surface. The traps were the low point of the round. All were in need of sand and seriously in need of a good raking. Some of the green side traps were damp mud with standing water. I'm sure that the course will have the traps in much better condition by months end when they host the Temecula Valley Amateur. The greens will be punched in a couple days and the are in need of it. Most of the greens had quite a bit of roll out and were not holding shots great. The rain has also slowed down the greens and many were somewhat bumpy. Those that have played here a few times know the greens are usually very quick and true - I'm sure in a couple weeks that the greens will be in fantastic shape. The GPS on the old rickety carts has helped those who don't use range finders. The front nine is fairly flat while the back nine has elevation changes and more difficult layouts. The surrounding area and views along with the wildlife make this an enjoyable course to play. Highly recommended
Worst hole on the course. Leave the driver in the bag and try to hit something 200ish up the left side and pray it doesn't take a hard bounce into the water on the right. You'll be left with a semi-blind short iron to a green that angles away from you.
