Walked the Blues (6083/69.9/119) in roughly 4H twilight. Sunny, fairly calm and around 70 made for a very pleasant afternoon. $30 to walk with the SLO Co. card is a good rate for this course.

Kikuyu tees mostly level and well maintained with decent coverage.

Kikuyu fairways mostly lush and good to play from.

Mostly Kikuyu rough maintained low with mostly good coverage. Beside and behind the greens the rough is lusher/taller. DO NOT short side yourself here! Many hard pan areas farther off the fairways.

Few sand traps on this course, but those observed were well maintained with good quality sand.

Smallish, old school poa greens were mostly firm but held approach shots very well. Putted medium speed and were relatively smooth even late afternoon. Most slope back to front and fall off to at least one side. No tiers on these greens, but down hillers are to be avoided on these greens.

Customer service excellent, friendly Marshall and Starter. Small driving range and a busy restaurant onsite. Never any on course services here. Fun course, Recommended.

Played this course for the fifth time a few days ago, having not played it for several months, and it was in surprisingly good shape. Since it’s fescue grass on the fairways, the course will never be super green and luscious. However, it is currently in really good shape and they have even grown out an improved 2in cut of fescue rough in key areas. One of my few issues with this course in the past was that the ideal lines on some holes involved bringing water and bunkered areas into play, and even if you hit good tee shots it would roll into them if you didn’t get much spin. Now with there being a consistent cut of rough around the course will play more fair and fun. Otherwise, this is a fun, engaging design that tests every part of your game. It is usually windy there after mid morning too providing an added challenge. Greens were in really good shape a few days ago, very green and rolling medium speed with enough firmness that there were hardly any pitch marks or other markings. Bunkers/waste areas are in good shape and won’t totally wreck your clubs like some of my home courses that have large pebbles in the sand. All water areas are completely full. For paying over $100 to walk on a weekend, the course is in shape it should be in but anything less would be frustrating. Grill has solid food and a mean pulled pork! Would highly recommend this course for anyone looking for a slightly different type of golf design than usual California courses.

This has been one of my local courses for a few years now and I made this account only to say GREAT WORK GUYS! I have never played this course in as good of condition as I did today. The team at LP has worked hard to restore most of the bunkers as well as manicure a consistent 2in cut of rough throughout the course. Greens were excellent, not rolling faster than about 10 but very smooth with minimal pitch marks given their firmness. I’ve always respected the design of this course and I’d certainly consider it a championship track that is a fair test of golf, although very difficult, especially with windy conditions year round. The only thing I’d say is that the amount of sand in the new bunkers is extensive and the chances of fried egg are high if the ball carries directly into it. I’m sure that will improve over time as the sand settles in during the winter though. Unfortunately, today was one of the worst scoring rounds I’ve ever had here (from the Black tees) but just have to shrug it off and get back out asap before aerification. Again, great work team just an amazing improvement from what was already a good course!

I played Monday 9/26 at the Air Force Academy Eisenhower Silver course. We chose the Silver course as it has more elevation change than the Blue course. I played with a couple of retired military officers who live in the area and they say the fairways are wider on the blue course but I found the fairways on the Silver course to have plenty of room. I’m not sure if civilians can lay these courses or not without being accompanied by Military. Course layout on the Sliver course was fantastic. Set in the hillside with the huge mountains as a backdrop was just spectacular. Of course it also helped that we hit the absolute perfect sunny and 77 degree temperature with very little to no wind day. Most holes have some sort of elevation change even if its just a slight slope. There are a number of elevated greens making your carry distance crucial. There are also a couple of water hazards on the track. Course design was super fun. It had a great mixture of holes with both slight to severe doglegs in both direction. And even a par 5 with a Z (dogleg in both directions on the same hole). Plenty of grip it and rip it holes (maybe even driveable for long hitters) and strategic layup with a 4 iron off the tee.

Condition wise, the greens had been aerated about 8-10 days earlier so they were rolling slower than normal which helped the downhill putts for sure. Whereas the greens are mainly single tiered, they do have some serious slope to them. Fairways were excellent. I’m not sure if it was because I found the center of the fairway more often on the back nine, but the back nine fairways were fantastic! Tee boxes were level, with most have great coverage but a couple of the par 3 boxes had severe divot damage. I avoided the sand traps all day.

Customer service was excellent and prices were nice. I don’t know what the green fee price was as I did some (ok a lot) of shopping in the pro shop. I do know that the total was very acceptable. Also, I bought a beer and a Gatorade from the on course beverage cart and it was only $7.50 total. Very reasonable.

I can’t recommend this course enough. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

On Tuesday September 27 2022 I played this golf course. Our tee time was for 8.00 AM Since my last Visit the Starting Building has been changed to the old teaching building. Hidden Valley is a real treat to play if you are hitting the ball good many force carries over bushy areas. Lots of Grass in the fairway , Most of the tee boxes was in good shape a few not mowed. The Greens will get punched October 17 2022 from what I was told I did see many dead spots in the greens the summer has not been kind to the greens. While they looked ugly they still putted well . Cost for golf mid week is $57.00 Seniors save $2.00 . There was some areas around the greens that had deep rough it made it hard to find your ball is you just missed the green. Golf Course was not perfect but Hidden Valley is a challenge so I will RETURN .

I played this with some friends on 9/25/22. Course is in great shape I highly recommend. Greens are in good shape as are the fairways. I love the challenge of this course, especially the last four holes which they call the "Quandry". This course has great food and drink and everyone is so nice.

Played this AM. Lots of water as expected with the heat coming in. Tee boxes were all fine and playing from their normal spots after some had new sod put in. No roll on the fairways early, though they provided good lies. By the time we reached back 9 they started to provide roll as they dried out. Bunkers were damp early and much more playable based on my playing partners comments. Rough was all playable throughout the course. Greens were soft/spongy early on, but came alive on the back allowing for some good birdies. Did notice that #15 is beginning to be a problem once again like last year. Check in smooth with Adam in the shop and with Brian as the starter as usual. With the cool weather coming back next week the course should firm up some more and be really fast and furious. One can hope. We have come to grips with the $69 for Sr and really have been hard pressed to find other courses that can match up at present. But we will continue to search. Given economic conditions at present, I certainly hope we don't see fees rise again later in the year or going into 2023.

9/26 using golf moose $80 2some on a really nice fall am with a 320 POP with some time spent looking to find the errant shots. Had not been here for 6 mo or so and overall was impressed with the upgarades, lot of grass where it was dirt and some new tee boxes. Fairways varied for quite good to thin in places as the heat has been an issue. Lies were ok to good. Rough was cut short but caught yout attention.as to shot making. I founf that the rough was actually helpful as it prevented excessive roll out and kept the ball in play. Never hit a bunker but they looked well maintained.
Tee boxes were level but some were chewed up. Most teeing areas are rather small so even with rotation they take a beating.
Greens are healthy with good cover. At 8 am they were wet and had not been brushed nor mowed so were on the slow side but got better as the round progressed.
Easy friendly check in. Range is closed early mondays. Carts are basic but effective. Fun layout where accuracy is primary.

First out as usual on what will be another hot day. Nice to get around quickly and avoid the heat. Course conditions have improved greatly over the past couple weeks. Greens still not as quick as I'd like, but they are super receptive right now. Fairways have good coverage, bunkers and tee boxes also much improved.

Because the South course is closed for the next three weeks, it's rather competitive to get tee times, and it's much busier than usual. But for right now, I'm going to take advantage of playing when available.

Just a short review on a Los Amigos round this past weekend. Greens probably in the worst, bumpiest condition than I've ever seen them here. Really terrible and disappointing. Discolored, pocky, and inconsistent in every way.

The rest of the course has its positives and negatives but none of it even scratching the surface of 'average' overall. And all that for $63 greens fee. Hope they get things fixed up soon.

Played Vineyard on Sat. Less than 2 weeks since the aeration. Perfect weather as usual, cool breeze off the Ocean!
The good news is that #13 is back to a Par 5 (it was a par 3 since at least June thru August.)

The Greens are recovering really well, with the exception of #6. The collar had quite a bit of diseased looking thin & bare spots. Some on the green too. Looks like it was punched with bigger holes. Other collar areas on the course are cut short & are in good condition.

The Fairways are mostly good. Some dryer spots, but still grass under the ball. The rough is thin, not tough at all unless your unlucky behind a big weed. Bunkers are a mix of decent sand & hard/rocky. They need some attention. For those that haven't played here, pretty wide open, but lots of water especially last 4 holes. Signature 18th Par 3 Island hole always into a stiff breeze...

The pace of play was just over 4 hrs (9*30 tee off), not bad for a Sat. Saw the drink cart at least once. You also drive by the Grill after the 13th. Grill is really good with full bar. Staff is efficient.

Overall one of my fav's to play. #13 as a par 3 really hurt, but back to Par 5, is a great risk reward hole. Showing some signs of a long summer, but still a good value. I'll be back.
