Played mountain meadows this afternoon. Was just as good as i remember from last time i played.

Staff was great today. Lady checking us in was super sweet and accommodating for my 4th player running 10 min late.

Tee boxes were mostly evenish. Except for hole 9, all had lots of grass.

Fairways had very few dead spots. They were dry and really tight, but good overall.

Sand was okay. There was some sand in the traps, but not super fluffy.

Rough was nit kind to me, lost 5 balls that should have been found easily. All would ne within a couple yards of fairway, but would just disappear. They need to cut the rough down a bit so that i can find my ball.

Greens were nice. Not super fast, but very decent speed. Fewer pitch marks than i was expecting.

Pace of play was good. Right about 4 hours (4.5) including stop at the turn.

Will definitely play here again sometime soon. Really do love the layout of this course.

Finally got out to play here again after about 9 months. My 6 year old and i played with some extended family who live in the desert. We played February 16, 2020 at a bit after 2:00 p.m. Phenomenal 80 degree day out!

Anyways, about the course - the course was absolutely wonderful (as always). Son and i showed up an hour early for our afternoon start. Hit some balls into the net, chipped some, and putted some. Short game practice area is great, but i just wish they had a real range. That said, the net is pretty decent to warm up with (compared to other nets i have hit into).

Went to hole one and the starter took off right as we were heading up to the first tee. We just teed off and had a great time.

Tee boxes were very nice. Even, though slightly shaggy fir my tastes.

Fairways were absolutely perfect. Perfect green and very few divots (all filled).

Rough was cut pretty short but very decent condition. Found desert a few times i went outside of the rough. Even the desert was playable though.

Sand was great. Fluffy, but not too fluffy. Nice white sand, too.

Greens were smooth. Different grass than I normally play, so were a bit slower than i am used to. Once I adjusted to speed, i was nothing but happy with the greens.

Clubhouse is wonderful, as always. Staff is amazing, both inside the clubhouse and out.

All in all, wonderful day and just wish i could have finished more than 14 holes (stupid short winter days). Son was beyond happy and wants to play again. Family from indio wants to play again too. Great course, and will be back for sure.

Have been taking lessons here with Bruce Thompson and figured i should post a review of the course. Always love this course (moved to live right by it). For all its quirks, it really is a good course. Played January 12, 2020 and it was in typical Marshall Canyon condition. Pace of play for a twosome was about 3.5 hours on a Sunday afternoon.

Greens were still impossible to read, and were very fast. Was still able to putt decent, but I will never really have the greens figured out here.

Fairways were in surprisingly decent shape. Some muddy spots, but very little bare area. Grass was actually pretty decent in fairways. Never an even lie in the fairway, but course is sitting on the side of a mountain.

Rough was spotty. Some shots had long grass, some had crab grass, some were on nothing but pine needles. More importantly than the playing surface, was the fact that there were all sorts of covered holes, meaning that i could not get a good lie in the rough. Upside, they trimmed some trees, so i did nit have to punch out as often as i have in the past.

Tee boxes were really uneven. I wish they would fix their tee boxes. They have been investing a lot into the course as of late, so i assume they will level out the tee boxes at some point. Still, the unevenness cost me a couple shots from the tee.

Staff is always great here. Matt and Cameron in the pro shop/cart barn are great. Bruce is great - again, i get lessons from him, as does my kid. Food service is great - bev cart was around a few times this afternoon.

Also, course just replaced their carts. New carts are really nice, even if they do not have gps in them.

All in all, i love Marshall. It is my home course and i will play it until they kick me off. Also, do not come here as i do not want it to become San Dimas, Diamond Bar or Mountain Meadows - i like the 3.5 hour rounds.

Played June 14, 2019. Course was great.

Staff was all good. Let me on with a very last minute booking, which was cool of them. Included a small warm up bucket, though limited flight balls.

Course was great overall. Conditions were just as good as Kapalua bay course, which i played a couple days prior (no ocean front holes really, though). Let me out as a single in the afternoon, but i joined up with a couple of kaamainas (sp?).

Tee boxes all level and lush.

Fairways were good with nothing dead. Lost a few balls to the water from various fairways. Rough was long, but not unfair.

Sand was a bit lighter than Kapalua, but still very good.

Greens were lightning quick. Pay attention to the silver vs. green colors!

Staff was really nice and the clubhouse was great. Bought a fair bit of gear from clubhouse (I was on vacation and needed souvenirs).

Definitely would recommend playing here if you can get a “deal” on a tee time.

Played June 11, 2019. Grouped up with a few other visitors.

Course was really nice. Got a pretty good price through the website and teed pff at 11:30 a.m.

Course itself was great. Staff was all amazing as was the staff at the restaurant. Get a burger from the restaurant - it is the best burger i have ever had.

Course conditions were near perfect. Tee boxes all level. Fairways were pristine. Bunkers were soft to the point that i had real trouble getting out of them.

Greens were lightning quick. Putts that were barely off would run like crazy.

All in all i shot terrible, but didn’t lose a ball on the 17th. Really want to go back and try course again to se if i can post a halfway decent score.

Played February 17, 2018.

Course played as expected. Tee boxes were good and level. Rough was not bad. Greens were in really good shape. Sand was good (as i found out too many times). Fairways were dry though. Hope the recent rains help out on the fairways.

Also, hit a duck with my ball. Felt awful. Skulled ball and hit duck in rear end. He was unhappy but was swimming around in the lake after a couple minutes, so i assume he was ok. I waited around with him until i was able to confirm that he was good. Do not do what i did, as you will feel terrible about it.

Staff was exceptional as always.

Play here a lot, and rarely review, since the sum of this course is greater than it's parts.

Pro shop staff is always amazing. My golf instructor, bruce, from claremont golf course works here now, amd will be giving lessons to my son soon. Rest of the staff is always amazing to me and anyone i bring along. Let me walk on as a single any time of day, amy day of the week, and do not mind if i hop around holes to skip slow playing groups. POP today was about 3.5 hours, which is good for a saturday on a muni course.

In any event, played 18 here today (January 14) and will play another 18 here tomorrow. Course was pretty muddy today as a result of all the rain we have been having.

Tee boxes were muddy and unlevel. Lots of divots on tee boxes, as well (some mine, unfortunately).

Fairways were decent and had good coverage of grass thanks to all of the rain. Few muddy spots but not so bad that my cart got stuck.

Rough is penal here. If you are in the rough, you are in the trees. Good luck getting a clean shot out.

Sand was actually pretty decent today. No standing water, and they were not hard pan.

Greens were soggy, but still fast. As is normal, the greens are impossible to read. They break the opposite direction of what they look like. After playing Marshal for 7+ years, i still cannot get good reads here. Very few ball marks though, and the few i saw, i went ahead and fixed.

As much as the conditions here are iffy, i adore this course. Beats me up each time i play, but i keep coming back (i moved to la verne to be near Marshal). Views are awesome, no houses around it, and deer everywhere. Quite proud to call it my home course.

Played on December 28. Absolutely perfect weather out. Despite high winds in Rialto (driving on 210) no real wind to speak of here.

Course itself was in decent shape. The driving range was mats on top of grass, but was just fine. Starter got us out perfectly on time. Course was not busy, which was a pleasant surprise, so no waiting on most holes. Buddy's cart died on one hole, so the 10 min we waited for a new cart was the worst wait we had. Otherwise, a minute or two tops for a wait to hit. Round took us about 3:45 total.

As for conditions, the tee boxes were good. Few tees were moved for repairs, but not many were like this.

Fairways were somewhat thin, but not so bad that I was playing off dirt.

Rough was nice. Not too long, but pretty lush.

Sand was really good for the most part. Greenside bunkers were filled with fluffy sand. Fairway bunkers were good, but had some small rocks in them.

Greens were FAST. Really fast. Nicely manicured but way faster than I am used to. Ball would just keep running on even the softest putt.

All in all, was a great day out. Been a few years since I have played here, and was glad I got to play Sierra again.

Played November 6. Was last group outrior to shutting down for a wedding. Was really nice as it felt like we had the course to ourselves. Played with 2 buddies, one of which had never played a full round before, so that made it good for him.

As for the course, it was in pretty decent shape. Few brown spots here and there, but what can you expect in fall?

Tee boxes were level enough and had plenty of grass.

Fairways were ok, with some thin spots here and there.

Greens were good, though slow.

Sand had some pebbles in it, but was serviceable.

All in all, a fun day with a great course for the price.

Played here today (7/23/16). Really do enjoy this course for what it is.

First and foremost, the staff here is the most welcoming staff of any course i have ever played. It hit 107 today, and i was offered cold towels at the beginning, the turn, and finally took one at the end. The entire staff is personable, and treats people like family.

Further, the cost is great at $24 for twilight.

Course plays through a neighborhood that is decently nice. Plays over lots of hills, which gives the course some character.

Teeboxes were somewhat unlevel in parts, but i could always find a decent spot to tee up.

Fairways and rough were brown in parts and green in parts. I give course a pass since they were watering fairways with reclaimed water during our round (sprinklers came on after we finished front 9 and did not interrupt the back). Good to see they are trying to keep course watered in the dead of summer.

Real disappointment was the sand. Not so much sand as it was dirt. Hard packed with rocks in it.

Big upside was the fringe and greens. Both were in great condition. Greens were a bit slow, but played nicely. All held shots well and all rolled true. I fixed quite a few ball marks, but cannot fault course for this (fix your marks people!).

Pop was 3.5 hours. Never ran into another groupon course due to heat. Would have been even faster but for our group stopping to reapply sunscreen every few holes.

My only real complaint is that they do not have logo balls. I collect logo balls, and my ocdmakes me want to have a complete set. I am missing a logo ball for cresta verde and it bothers me to no end!

All things considered, cresta verde is a great course for the money. Not the best in sny regard, but great for the low price of admission.

Played June 5, 2016. Really do like this course. Had a foursome of friends and had a great time.

Tee boxes were slightly unlevel on some holes, but all in all good.

Fairways had a few brown spots, but were much better than i have seen in the past. Most spots were quite lush and the ball tended to sit up nicely.

Rough on this course is pretty much non existent. Either fairway or desert. The parts that did have rough were in good shape, though.

The sandtraps were the big disappointment. Each of them that my group was in were hard pan. They really need to put more sand in the traps.

Greens were the highlight. Very fee unrepaired pitch marks. Very smooth and VERY FAST. Hard to remember that everything breaks down the valley.

Staff was great. Bar staff was super helpful. Marshall told us to hurry it along once, but was apologetic when we pointed out that we were right behind the group in front. Apparently they got a call about pace of play, but were very nice once they were shown that the holdup was not us.

All in all, this is my favorite IE course. Has an incredibly interesting layout. Pretty difficult, but not as punishing as champions club.

Will definitely be back to play again.
