Played Saturday, 8/1. Walked on as a single, put my name in around 1:50 and teed off at 2:45, not too bad at all. Got paired up with a threesome of locals who were great to play with, very fun group.

Persistent fog all day. Course is in good shape right now. Teeboxes were a little chewed up, but fairly level and not too difficult to find a good spot for the tee. Fairways were generally very good to excellent. Good cushion, decent roll and great coverage. Had good lies most all day. Rough was mowed down, not penal at all, easy to advance. Found one bunker and it was in good shape. A little compact, but soft underneath, no problem getting out. I thought the greens were in great shape. Receptive to well struck shots and they rolled very smooth and at a consistent pace, slightly faster than usual. Customer service was just fine, beverage cart was out and the starter Mike is always a pleasure. POP was just fine today, thanks goodness, about 4.5hrs which is not too bad for Nado. Get on out there if you can.

Played yesterday, Sunday, using underpar deal for $88 for two. I bought two vouchers, so with the service charge, it's $45ea. Good deal for a Sunday at 12:45pm teetime. We teed off about 15mins late and had a pretty bad POP at 5hrs. No marshall out there and it's the weekend, so it's about what you'd expect for the POP in the middle of the day.

Course was in good condition overall, seems better now than in the past. Teeboxes were pretty chewed up on the par3's, but all the others were just fine. Fairways were hit and miss, some bare spots and some divot damage, but for the most part, I had good lies all day and they offered some roll. Traps were pretty bad, lots of rocks and weeds, so we played that you could pickup your ball and place it to a good lie, no rakes of course. Rough wasn't too penal, it was short and fairly easy to hit from. Lots of dormant rough. Greens definitely the highlight. They held shots very well and were smooth and fast. Arguably the best I've seen these greens in 5yrs. Customer service just fine, bare minimum. The beverage cart girl came around 3 times and she was very friendly. Overall an easy recommend right now, especially if you can get it for the underpar deal (mon-wed you can get a free replay).

Holy Cow. What an awesome day. Played yesterday, 7/23. Thanks to new friend Louis Noriega ("Lou") for the invite out to this special place. (Lou played a lot of competitive golf throughout his whole life and he's a complete "stick", hits the ball on the screws every shot!!)

This is an old school layout, original William Watson design with Billy Bell remodel way back in the day. Everything was lush throughout the course. Teeboxes were perfect, level and absolutely no problem quickly finding a great place to tee it up. Although Lou said they are staring a complete remodel on them next year, we laughed at that.

Fairways were absolutely stunning. All bermuda and perfectly mown, just like carpet. Ball sat up perfectly and they still provided some good roll. They are mounded all over the place, rarely a flat lie, adding to the challenge of the course. It's like the dunes of Pismo Beach, if you're dead in the middle, you will get a flatter lie than towards the sides of the fairways.

I Missed a couple of fairways and the rough wasn't too penal today. We were told it's normally a lot longer, but they had just mowed it down to reasonable lengths. Lots of trees and they lost about 160 of them during that freak "superstorm" a few years ago in 2017. Stay in the fairways!!

Found two bunkers and they were absolutely perfect. No problems even without being raked from Covid.

The greens were unbelievable!! Held shots very well and hardly a ball mark to be found, the members take great care of these greens. They were fairly fast, 11.5-12 on the stimp, I believe. But they get faster. Just like the fairways, they are subtly mounded all over the place. I maybe had one straight put the entire day. They are diabolical!!! need some local knowledge. And they are very fast, must respect!!

Customer service was fantastic. The guys in the proshop were great. Easy check in. $100 guest fee to walk (I think its another $22 to ride, but it's an easy course to walk). Course was very busy, but POP was still around 4hrs, no waiting on the back nine at all. A little waiting on the front, mainly the par 3's as they are very difficult and long. Can't wait to return, worth every bit of the guest fee. If anyone invites you, drop everything like I did (I literally had an hour advanced noticed and bolted from work immediately), and get out there.

Finally got to play after a long hiatus, at least a month just been too busy lately. Teeoff at 7:30am, so we show up and have a nice breakfast on the patio at Tobey's and then the crapshow started when we went to check in well ahead of our teetime. My resident card expired and now I can't renew it in person??? What the heck, I need to renew it online??? So I start trying to renew it online with my phone following very confusing instructions. Couldn't get it done after 15 minutes of trying, so I had to pay the $53 non-resident rate, even though I have my proper ID proving my residency. Thank god I wasn't trying to play Torrey, but needless to say, $12 is $12, so I went to the first tee very bitter. I played extremely well, so it didn't bother me, but the conditions on the course followed the poor conditions in the proshop.

Tees were not very level, had to search for a good spot.

Fairways were rather beat up and pretty wet. I only missed one fairway all day and had adequate lies most of the time, but caught a few bad breaks along the way, too. Some thin lies, bare dirt, some wet, etc. Visually had different colors, as well.

Didn't find any bunkers, so I don't know how they were.

The greens held most shots if you struck it very well. They were fairly hard for the most part and expect about 3-5 yds of roll if you're not hitting an 8iron or less and it better be struck with some spin. They were also bumpy for the most part causing some putts to go offline.

Not much rough to speak of, just some patchy crab grass and they had just mowed the thick stuff.

snack shop at the turn open, very friendly. Saw cart girl once at 12th hole but she was in a normal golf cart with a cooler, i thought it was the marshal with water because they cut out the water fountains because of the Vid, but she was "selling" water. Come on, if you're gonna cut out the water fountains, you should have someone out there with some cups of water, it's a tough walk and it was a hot and humid morning.

POP was ridiculous, 5hrs when we teed off at 7:30am. Group in front of us was two holes behind the whole time, they were slow as snot and no marshal in sight. I didn't want to say anything to the group in front of us and cause a ruckus, so bit my lip for 4hrs.

Epic fails by the staff on this muni today. Not worth the $53 to walk right now. If anyone has tips on renewing the resident card online, please let me know in an email. thanks

PLayed yesterday, Friday, 5/8 with 1:15 teetime. Just me and my brother went out as a twosome. Played Stonehouse/Oaks. Course is darn good shape all around. Nothing outstanding, but everything a solid 7/10. Check in was easy, paid the 20$ cart fee when we arrived. Starter got us out a little early. They had 15mins spacing, so POP was great, 1.5hrs on Stonehouse and then 2hrs on Oaks as we encountered a slow twosome, so we played the par 3s twice.

Teeboxes were nice and level, not much divot damage at all.

Fairways had great coverage. never a bad lie all day.

Greens were good, held shots well. but they were a little bumpy. perfect speed, not too fast and not too slow.

Rough was pretty brutal. Thick and lush. tough to advance the ball properly. Rip a 5-7 iron and hope for the best.

We played the bunkers as GUR, I was in two and my lies were impossible without being raked.

Customer service was good. Saw beverage girl twice. We were asked to put our mask back on by the road crossing, but otherwise they didn't hassle us. Impossible playing with a mask on when it's 90degrees heat.

All and all a great day. $35 green fee online plus $20 for the cart is an excellent deal for this course. I really like the Stonehouse/Oaks combo. Great layout. Stoked we can play again.

I met my brother out at the Springs RV resort again over the weekend and had a blast. Conditions are pretty much identical to my last review, but the greens were a little slower. They are not holding shots right now, either. The course is very playable. Fairways were very nice. The bunkers were not in very good shape due to the Covid no rake situation, but they were still playable for the most part. Teeboxes were good, nice and level. Not much rough to speak of. Lots of people out there, but everyone played fast and kept their distance. They weren't pairing anyone up that didn't know each other, so my brother and I played as a twosome both days. $44 with a cart for all you can play, not a bad deal.

This is the only course open in SoCal right now as far as I know. We stayed at the Borrego Springs Resort (which the golf course is closed permanently), but the hotel is nice. Great pool and jacuzzi and they had a dinner special delivered to your room, very accommodating. Beautiful little town and the golf is certainly fun. Definitely not a destination course, but worth playing if you're out there or are going stir crazy like I was. Had to get out of the house.

Played today, Saturday. Called a few days ago and got a 12:30 time. $25 to walk, pretty good rate for a weekend, I think my brother and wife paid $42 to ride. Easy walking course.

Everything is in playable condition. Nothing was outstanding, but this place gets a lot of play. POP was just under 5hrs, to be expected. Teeboxes were level enough to find a place to tee it up. Fairways had a lot of mixed grass, but I had pretty good lies all day, no complaints. Didn't find any bunkers, but they looked ok. Greens were in pretty good shape, but they didn't hold shots very well. I haven't played this course for years and I forgot how sloped and "crowned" the greens are. I guess they're the only defense on this short course. Overall, had a great time. Am I in a hurry to get back? Probably not. But it's fun and I'd recommend for the price, for sure.

Played Sunday, March 1st. Called the starter around 9am and he had a slot for a single at 10:15. Yippee. Got right out on time. POP was just over 4hrs, so not too bad for Nado. The wind and chilly weather scared some people away, I guess. Course is in it's usual playable shape, but nothing was fantastic. Teeboxes were level and had good coverage. Fairways were pretty thin and dry. Made for some good rollout, but there were some patchy spots. Rough wasn't very penal at all. Found one bunker and it was just fine, nice and fluffy. Greens were a little on the hard side, some of them held shots, but for the most part, they rolled out about a half of club and even short irons barely made a ball mark on the green. They rolled pretty smooth, though. $43 to walk on Sunday is worth it for sure. It's always beautiful out there to walk. Easy recommend.

Played on Saturday, leap day. I don't recall ever playing on leap day in the past, so that's kind of cool. Went out with Nate and Jerry, good friends of mine, who will be becomming active members of this group very shortly. We teed off at 11:30 and POP was about 4.5hrs. A little waiting on quite a few teeboxes, but nothing too bad. I walked the course and at $46 it's not worth the green fee at this time. Teeboxes were just fine, not any huge issues. They were level enough and had decent coverage. Fairways were a mixed bag, fairly hard and dry for the most part, but I usually had some good lies, found a couple of divots, but they were thin enough to not cause a problem. I didn't find any bunkers, but they looked ok. Greens were pretty firm, rolled out about a half of club longer, so planned accordingly. They actually rolled pretty good. They had some dead spots around the perimeter on some of them, but didn't affect anything. They're doing a lot of construction, so there's a couple of teeboxes that were moved way up. 15 is a par 3 that's a joke now, it's like 65 yards with the back teeboxes under construction. Customer service was just fine. No beverage cart, but they have a halfway house that you pass a couple of times. Super friendly staff in the bar. I wouldn't recommend right now for the price. It's a $30 course right now. Jerry and Nate rode in a cart, so their round was $60, kind of a joke for that price.

Played yesterday, Saturday at 9:30 tee time. POP was almost 5hrs, pretty slow, waited on just about every shot. Oh well, that's weekend golf for ya and that's about the only time I get to play. No marshal in sight, so I zipped through the front nine by myself after we played 18 in less than an hour. Check in was easy, $45 for me, but my buddies had a 2fer deal from clickitgolf, I think it was about $35 ea for them with the voucher. Course is in overall playable condition. Lots of brown/dormant grass, so it doesn't look super appealing, but there were no huge problems. Teeboxes were level and had decent coverage for the most part. Fairways were pretty thin and had quite a few divots, I found two of them off the tee as I only missed two fairways. Didn't hit into any bunkers, so can't comment on those, but they looked ok however they didn't looked raked properly. The greens were pretty darn good, they were the saving grace for this course. They were pretty quick and held shots well. Lots of ball marks, but they putted true. Service was all good, saw the beverage cart a few times and Sculpin IPA was $5 which is nice, they don't rip you off for a beer. I like the layout of the course, but wish it was in better condition. Tough to play this course when Sycuan and Steele Canyon are way better.

Played Mission Impossible yesterday. A friend of a friend is a member and got us out. Guest rate is a little steep, but gladly pay it for this track. Very fun layout, lots of hills, doglegs, water, trees, etc. Just about everything you want. Teed off at 1pm and finished 18 in the pitch dark.

Teeboxes were very nice. Level with great coverage. No complaints here, 9/10

Fairways were cut dow fairly short and had good coverage. A few divots unfilled and not completely lush and green, but never had any issues all day and I only missed one of them by to be in a fairway bunker by about 5 ft inside. 8/10

All the bunkers were just fine, found one greenside bunker and it was fluffy on top for about an inch and a half, but then firm under that. No problems. 8/10

Greens were just fine. They held shots very well and putted fairly smooth. A few bumps because it was late in the day, but that's to be expected. They weren't perfect, as they had a mixture of grasses growing through them. Had a few patches of lime green stuff mixed in with the dark green. They were diabolical fast downhill and the cups were cut in very difficult positions. I had 42putts!! ouch. Overall I'd give the greens a 7/10. Not the best part of the course right now.

I love this course, I think it's my third time playing it. I would easily be a member. Great practice facilities and a lovely clubhouse and locker room. Different sets of tees make for an ever changing view of the course and the greens are very difficult and often very narrow in the landing areas. Get out there if you can get the chance.

Played over the past weekend both days, 1/11 and 1/12. I never knew this place existed, but my brother and sister in law took their RV out there and invited me and my wife to join them. My brother and sister in law are both just starting to golf and this was her first time on the real golf course. This place was very enjoyable to play. It's 3000yds and provides all the challenge anyone would need. The par 3s are long, the par 5s are reachable and the par 4s all provide ample challenge. The conditions were way better than I expected. $30 twilight after 12:30pm and it's all you can play. We played pretty slow due to my partners learning the game, which was just fine, it was perfect weather, so I didn't mind at all. We let 2 twosomes play through on Saturday and let a single play through on Sunday, that's the only time we really ran into anyone on the course, it was pretty much empty. Teeboxes were very nice and level, hardly any divot damage whatsoever. Fairways were very nice. Lush green with perfect cushion and roll, no complaints. Not much rough here, they only have it about an inch longer than the fairway, so no problem. Beyond the rough it's desert sand and rock, so be careful not to damage your clubs. Traps didn't look that great, but they played just fine. Soft enough with no issues. The greens were great, held well struck shots, but they rolled out if you miss hit em. They were on the firm side, but had medium speed as they weren't mown very close. Only complaint is they didn't change the pins from Saturday to Sunday. Customer service was all fantastic. I definitely recommend playing it, especially if you have some beginners or perhaps someone that doesn't want to feel rushed by other golfers.
