Always a pleasure to play Santa Anita. It's one of the nicest walks around. Just a wonderful parklike setting with good views of the foothills. If you enjoy old style tradition golf courses, Santa Anita should satisfy your needs. Rolling fairways with all the "Red Cars" buried underneath provide for some challenging stances/lies.

Course is in good, not great condition. Some areas in the fairways need attention, same with the rough. Greens better than expected, but still a tad too slow for my taste. Bunkers are kind of "crusty", so it depends upon where your shot ends up

Staff is always friendly and the senior rates make this a real bargain

Seeing MichaelKo’s recent post made me eager to get out to the Glass. Went out and played Spyglass Hill this morning with a slightly earlier tee time (8:30) than normal. Course is in excellent shape as expected. Fairways were a perfect ten. Just slightly better than Ridge Creek which I played again yesterday. Greens had been recently punched with the tiny holes and light sanding. Didn’t greens still rolled smooth at a very fast pace. They said they were rolling at an 11 but they had to be closer to a 13. The tiny holes didn’t affect putts at all.

Tee boxes are always spectacular at The Glass and overall are probably the best in the business on a continuous basis.

Sand traps were disappointing. I was in SEVERAL bunkers and there were a handful that were damp with compact sand. Not the worst thing but not what you would expect from a track like this.

Rough…. OMG was it brutal!! Only about 3” thick but like Velcro. Very penal.
POP was right at 4-4 ¼ hours. We waited early on the twosome in front of us then their caddie got them moving along at a nice pace. We never saw the group behind us after the second hole when we were waiting on the third tee box.

COVID – back to normal. Cups at normal depth, rakes in the bunkers, caddies available and beverage cart out and about.

Spyglass Hill is a great walk (CPO if you take a cart) and always recommended.

Played today. Course is in good shape. Tee boxes clean/playable. Fairways green with good lies and decent roll. Traps all clean/playable and with rakes. Rough pretty much non factor. Greens in good shape but putt a tad slow as they are not cut super close due to heat. Excellent customer service at all levels. No masks required in OC.

One of my favorite courses, which I used to play often, but with the massive price increases since Covid, I have stayed away, which is the only method I have to express my dissatisfaction. I had a gift card which I wanted to use, so made the decision to play having secured an early (5:36am) tee time.

Staff was great. Having the first time off, I was told I could tee off whenever I desired, so off we went in the dark at 5:20am, which enabled us to play quickly and avoid the expected heat today. Quite a bit of waiting for maintenance, but still able to finish in 2 hours 40 minutes.

Course was in as nice condition as I've seen it, with the exception of the greenside bunkers, which were unmaintained, compacted, or no sand it all (#2) Fairways were excellent, greens rolled well and were very receptive, even for my shot trajectory. Course was a pleasure to play.

Longing for the day, which I am sure will never return, when the price to play becomes more affordable.

Played the Beach Resort on the 13th in some nice windy conditions. The Kings course is not yet reopened for play but will be opening 9 holes soon, probably by the end of this month or next. Course was really wide and open, which with the wind we had, was a welcome relief. Some really fun doglegs and the course was designed with the wind in mind, so if you get lucky and don't have wind, you could score out here. This course was in the worst shape of any we played but it was still fantastic compared to most courses. Fun track that runs through the Waikoloa area and lots of condo complexes but still has some great holes on the ocean. Nice clubhouse restaurant and great service and great range. Had a blast on this track because it was so open and played much easier than the others we played. The only thing was some of the tee boxes had some divot damage and were a little unlevel, but always had somewhere to put your peg that was great. Well worth the fee on golf now.

Got out to Kona Country Club on the 16th of July. Hardest greens on the island and easily the fastest we played on our trip. They no longer have the other course and the Ocean course is the only 18 now here, but it is great. The greens were super fast and had more slope on them than anything I can remember playing, anywhere. Made for a challenge putting them, especially adjusting to the speed. Great layout with a few holes on the water and we got a great 76 dollar rate through golf now. IF YOU PLAY ON THE BIG ISLAND, CHECK GOLF NOW BEFORE YOU PAY THE RACK RATES! Anyway, the rest of the course was in great shape but not as good as Mauna Kea or Hapuna or Mauna Lani, but the course is more challenging IMO. Well worth the time to play this but it is way closer to downtown Kona than the out lying resorts to the north.

Played this course on the 13th of July. Great layout and really fun track with some great holes along the ocean. One of the most well known par threes anywhere where you hit over the ocean to the hole but not quite as cool as the one at Mauna Lani South, IMO. Greens were not nearly as good as its sister course, Hapuna, but still really nice but rolled slower and had more grain. Rest of the course is super and in perfect shape, from the rough to the Sand, nothing wrong anywhere. Really fun layout and had some definite challenge and some great elevation change. This course was really fun and worth the splurge.

Played out here on Sunday the 18th and it is in spectacular shape. Best greens on the island if not the fastest. Thought they were fake at first glance. We got a great deal through golf now and played it for just over 100 bucks, well worth it. Fairways, rough, sand, was all great with no bad lie on the property and the layout, while not on the water, is great and was really fun with some great holes and we were lucky to not have a ton of wind. I imagine that would make this course really hard. Definite play along with Mauna Kea if you are on the big island but use golf now, always had a hot deal available.

Played Tierra Rejada on Wed 7/21. Nice 55 & over discount $45.
The course is in great shape! Beautiful day for Golf, Tee time 8*20 as a 3some.

Carts, no GPS although they have an app you can use with the phone. I used my own.

Tee Boxes never an issue, good coverage, pretty level.

Fairways are really nice, low cut. Drives run well. Divot mix on carts.

Greens are med fast. Very few ball marks. Undulating & fun to play.

Bunkers are best I've seen recently. Good sand with rakes.

The rough longer & tougher in some areas. Good coverage through out.

The Bar & Grill was open & doing good biz. Good service through out the facility.

POP was just under 4 hours.

Some peeps just don't like the course, it is a bit billy goatish, especially front 9. That said I like it alot & highly recommend it. Wonderful condition!

Played Tues July 20th at 6:46. Check in fast, restaurant was open and had a one egg sandwich to go, very good. Got out 5 minutes before the men's club. Due to the heat wave they had sprinklers on at every hole and you had to avoid them, wasn't much roll in the fairways because of that. The first 2 greens were a little soggy that time of the morning but I am sure they dried out. Some of the rough was a little long under the trees, and some of the bunkers had good sand, others had water from the sprinklers. Tee boxes were good, a few hard spots but always had a level lie. Greens rolled a touch slow, they usually do here, but I know they added extra water because of the heat, rolled true thought. Always a pleasure to play this course. POP was 3:45 we were done by 10:30 but it was still hot and humid

Got to play Spanish Hills for the first time on 7/19 as part of a scramble "tournament" outing for the Ventura County Contractors Association. Conditions were excellent. Coverage was very nice from tee boxes to the greens with the tee boxes being level throughout. The immediate rough was generally green and playable with some areas a little thicker and potentially a little more costly. Further off and you were into frequently heavy brush and wild coverage. The bunkers generally seem pretty firm although I was in one very firm and another that was drier, less compacted, and played more normally. The greens were in very nice shape, probably running around 10/11 with some subtle breaks on top of the more obvious contours.

The course is built around the crest of a hill and you eventually get the 360º view as you play your way around it. With the bit of altitude, you get some beautiful views of the area and local mountain ranges. The course itself is sinuous and on the narrow side with a healthy mix of some altitude changes. For all practical purposes I don't see it as a walking course. I thought the display performance in the carts could have been a little better thought out but that is a minor quibble from someone who rarely uses carts or the readouts. The carts themselves performed and handled nicely and had generously cushioned, stitched leather seats. Nicer than anything I've experienced on a golf course. While there is a sense of being narrow, the course is not particularly long so the vectors and distances needed to get into position are reasonable. What makes it seems narrower is that once off the fairway and green rough you are frequently into fairly dense vegetation and underbrush. A healthy slice or hook usually didn't deserve a second thought as to whether it merited a search, so more than the usual quota of lost balls can be expected. There is a target golf aspect to it that has you considering your shot placement but I found it enjoyable and adding a little challenge without being excessive. The clubhouse is on the grand side and the staff was helpful and pleasant. Bottom line, as an interesting, scenic and reasonably challenging course in very nice condition, if you are offered a chance to play here, take it.

First time at this course. It was in great shape. The practice area was on point. One of them was closed, but it didn't seem to matter much. Plenty of room.

The staff was friendly, the pastrami melt is delicious and very large. Split it with someone. lol. The clubhouse was spacious and very comfy seating.

The course was in great shape. The greens staff was watering at numerous locations and the course was well taken care of.

I live on the opposite side of town, but it's worth the drive. Especially if you are looking for something new.

they have 3 courses and from what I understand, we played the medium difficulty course. Snow is supposedly the easiest and Wolf is the most challenging.

Their reputation preceeds them. I can't wait to try the other 2.

Thanks for hosting our event!
