Played on Saturday, 5/16 at 10:40. Played with my son and a friend, and joined by a single. Finished in about 4:15, very little waiting. Pre-paid online, so easy check in outside the pro shop. Masks required in common areas. One person at a time in pro shop, food service, etc. Carts available when we teed off, one per cart unless family, so my son and I shared a cart.
This was my second time ever playing here, and conditions are fantastic. Clean tee boxes, great coverage in the fairway, and rough is thick in places but playable. Greens were soft, medium speed, sign said running 10 on stimp. Traps, of course, are a mixed bag. Seems a lot of people can't be bothered to smooth out their divots and footprints.
First round since January, so a little apprehensive about the the covid precautions and protocols. Wasn't as awkward as I expected. Didn't mind leaving the flag in except for the few times the wind was really up, but given the alternative I was just happy to be out playing.
Staff was very friendly, marshall around a few times. Saw the beverage cart twice.
All in all a great day. Happy to get my son out after 2 years of not playing, traffic from south OC to course was light, pace of play was great, and the course is in fantastic shape and a lot of fun. I'll be back soon - think I'll buy the Palm card to get better rates next time.

Played this morning with my friend who's a member of the men's group. Teed off around 7. We finished in under 4 hours, which is awesome for a Sunday morning. Not much waiting on the group in front and didn't feel pushed by the group behind.
Tee boxes were good, I thought fairways were better than expected given it's winter. A few thin lies but for the most part fairways were good. All but one of the traps I was in were nice soft sand and easy to escape if you put a decent swing on the ball. Unfortunately 18 greenside trap was thin and I found the rock hard bottom and sending my ball well over the green. Greens were firm and most shots hit and bounced a bit. Not many 2 hop and stops today. They were fairly quick and rolled well.
Course is in pretty good winter shape. Good breakfast burrito after the round in the grill. Fair prices. Great way to start out Super Bowl Sunday. Hope to play more frequently with this group in the coming months.

Played Friday 12/27 with a 12:08 tee time. Got out around 12:15. Our twosome was paired with a father and son twosome -really great guys that were a lot of fun to play with. Played the white tees knowing the course was going to play long due to all the rain.
We thought the course was in pretty good shape considering all the cold and wet weather. Tee boxes were good (a few of the par 3s were a bit chewed up), fairways were a little thin but had complete coverage. Rough was thick in some spots, and pretty wet. Made escape challenging, as it should be. Sand traps were in good shape considering all the rain.
Won't complain about pace. We knew it was cart path only and it was crowded, so expected a long round. We got it. We could have finished 18 in the dark, but called it a round after 17.
We thought the course was in better shape than expected. They didn't know when they were going to lift CPO rule, so as long as you know going in it will be a long round, I recommend. Hope to get out here more, and more golf overall in 2020.

Got out of work a little early so was able to play a late afternoon round today and got 11 holes in. Could have squeezed in one or two more before dark, but 13 tee box was stacked up so called it a night. Pace was about 2:20 to finish 11 holes which for here is pretty good considering how many players were on the course.
Sad to say that the course is a bit beat up right now. Prior review was spot on - fairways a bit shaggy, a few bare spots in fairways, many more bare spots in rough and throughout the course. Greens slow, lots and lots of ball marks, a few bare/worn areas on green collars. A few sections of new sod have been laid. Not sure why seemingly no one that plays here fixes ball marks. The 2 bunkers I was in were fine.
I think they do a big maintenance in October - hope that gets this course back in top shape - this is a great layout and so much fun to play when conditions are good.

Played in the first group in the Sunday outing. It's been a long time since I've played Oak Creek (last time I played the nines were reversed) and yesterday the course was as good as I've seen it. And I saw a lot of it LOL. My terrible play not withstanding, I had a great time with our group - super fun and easy going guys.
Greens were fantastic - liked that every green was about the same speed. Was in one bunker, sand very soft and fluffy. Fairways were great. It's not an overly long course, but you really do have to think your way around some holes. Lots of options off the tee on some of the shorter par 4s. Approach shots to the correct level of the green/pin is key here.
Staff was very friendly and helpful.
With the changes being made and the deals Johnny has been able to provide, I expect this course to be on my short list of options on the limited occasions I get to play these days.
Want to thank my partners for a fun day, and Johnny - I really appreciate the invite and all the work you do to make this great game even better.

Played Friday super twilight round teeing off around 4:40. Paired with another single. Not much to add from the previous reviews. Fairways are tight and ball runs out - choose your clubs accordingly. Greens were ok - a bit bumpy and lots of spike marks. Tough to rate them that late in the day after all the play. Was able to get in 16 holes, playing 1-7 then going back to #1 and completing all 9.
Check in was easy and everyone at course was very nice. I've played here a few times now and I like it more each time.

Played Friday, 5/17 as a foursome. Teed off around 10 and finished in just under 4.5 hours. Course is in very nice shape. Greens were a bit slower than normal (per my playing partners), but pretty consistent from green to green. Good coverage in fairways. The few bunkers I was in were well maintained. The rough in some spots was pretty thick, other spots not so much. Some holes are pretty tight, and course knowledge certainly helps here. Not overly long, but several tee shots make you think. Staff was fantastic. Highly recommend.

Played Birch Hills on Saturday 2/23. 10:34 tee time - got out about 10 minutes late.

Course is in decent shape considering all the storms we've had recently. Tee boxes a bit chewed up, which I guess is expected given mostly par 3s. Greens were in really good shape. Some unrepaired ball marks, but overall we thought they were smooth and fairly fast. Best part of the course for sure.

This is a beginners course, so expect a long round, especially on a Saturday morning. We finished in about 4 hours. Waited on every hole. No marshall, no starter, no beverage cart. 5 somes, several younger, less experienced golfers adds to the pace. Knew that going in, so not as frustrating as it can be at other courses.

My buddy paid for golf and lunch, it was a beautiful day, and I didn't play terrible even though it was my first round in about 4 months, so, even with the slow pace, I can't complain.

Played late Wednesday evening as a single, teeing off around 5:00 pm. $15.00 rate using my players club membership, which also included a drink.
Overall the course is in pretty good shape. The greens were a bit bumpy that late in the day, but not too bad. Fairways were good, mostly green, great coverage. Tee boxes level and clean. Typical divots on par 3s, especially that late in the day.
Only played nine holes (got hungry), and pace was about 2 hours for the 9.
This is only the 2nd time playing here, and I thought it was a bit easier this time having a better idea of where to aim and proper club selection. No grip it and rip it here.
Unfortunately my family and work commitments only allows for infrequent golf, and I've decided 9 holes late in the evening is better than nothing, so I'm sure I'll be back out here a few more times during the summer. Can't beat the price for this course.

Played Yorba Linda CC in a charity scramble on Monday, May 21. Last minute invite from my friend that helps manage this event. First time playing this course.
As expected, everything was in great shape, except for the greens. Some had been punched, and most of them had light sand. A few putts were affected, but for the most part no issues.
Played from the white tees, so not very long. Lots of narrow, tree lined fairways. Definitely need to know where to hit it (not hit it) to score well here.
Course staff was great. Food after golf was excellent.
Fun course. Go play it if you get the chance!

Played Shadow Ridge on Saturday, May 19th using Underpar vouchers - $120 for two golfers including free same day replay.
First time playing this course. Check was easy. Pro shop gave us info about the property, where everything was, and a few helpful tips on the course. Went to warm up on the all grass range (range balls included). Hit a few putts, practice green very similar to the greens on the course sans some of the brown patches.
Our foursome teed off at 9:00. Pace of play right at 5 hours. Saw the marshall a few times, very nice and explained that he was trying to move things along as best he could.
Tee boxes were mostly level. The par 3s and a few shorter par 4s had lots of divots but no problem finding a spot to hit from. Fairways are generous and had great coverage. Ball sat up nice. Rough was thick in some spots, not so much in others. The greens had some brown patches mixed in with green. Looked like it would affect the roll, but it didn't. Greens were medium speed, and with all the undulations I don't think they can get them much faster.
Cart girl around several times. Water stations every other hole. You don't end up at the clubhouse after 9 so plan food accordingly.
Even after the 5 hour 1st round, we played a 2nd 18 after getting lunch in the restaurant. No waiting on the 2nd 18, and even taking our time we finished in about 3 hours.
Really enjoyed the course. Greens are definitely the defense here. I have another Underpar voucher so I'll definitely be back, and hopefully play better.

Took advantage of the golf moose deal 2 players for $84. Played with my son and 2 of his friends.
Tee time was 10:40. Got there around 9:30 to warm up and hit a few putts. Nope. Driving range and practice greens are closed. Nothing on the web site nor were we told this when I made the tee time. Notice I saw said range closed around March 27 and would be about 2 months before it opens again. So, end of May is my guess.
Asked if we could go out early, and they got us out right away. Great customer service.
Course is in pretty good condition. Tee boxes level and good coverage. Fairways were very good. Rough not really thick, patchy in spots, but overall good condition. The few bunkers I was in had plenty of sand. One fairway bunker was firm with some scattered rocks, but definitely playable. Greens were medium speed. 1 or 2 had some small patches that need some work, but overall I thought they were very good.
Finished 18 in just over 4 hours. Since the GM deal is free replay, we went right back out. Again, customer service was great and they got us out before the next groups of golfers. The 2nd round was a bit slower. Finished the front nine and 2 of us called it quits. The other two finished the back 9.
Overall was a great day. Nice course, very good conditions, great customer service in the pro shop and restaurant. Only issue was the range and putting green. Definitely worth the price using the GM deal.
