After playing 12/30 at 12:21 twilight rate, I couldn't believe any of the previous comments. Must be another Pala Mesa around - the course I played was HORRIBLE. Started with a booked Golfnow rate as a single, followed by an elderly starter who simply forgot I had checked in and let other threesomes go off until I reminded him " oh yeah, you can join them". Pace of play was so slow, with a shotgun tournament interspersed, and resort guests all apparently just learning the game from the blue and black tees. Had to quit after 11 holes and 3 1/2 hours with a guarantee of two groups waiting at each tee box staring me in the face. No marshal doing anything, just kid employees just drag racing their golf carts around. As for the course - their course super had notes at the pro shop explaining their problems - they had numerous completely browned out fairways, worse than any muni I've ever played on. And there was no reduction in course fees. The greens were in excellent condition, very fast, but the pin placements on the heavily sloped greens guaranteed a heavy penalty for not stroking the perfect roll on each green - particularly #2 which sits high on the hill side and entirely slopes down towards the freeway. The lush flowers seen on course photos were barely seen, ?seasonal. All in all, a terrible day on the course, which is a rarity for me to say. The Pala super should be embarassed to keep the course open with the fairways in such condition, and service for non-resort guests should be improved.
Played Willow Glen for first time 12/29, had a fantastic time. The course is set in a small canyon with beautiful views. The course was lush, with good tee boxes mostly flat, fairways in excellent condition, and fast greens that read and rolled true - not that I could read or roll it true. The signature 4th hole shoots down from an elevated tee box to a landing area that gently slopes down to a small lake that fronts the green. How far to hit your tee shot? A few other holes also require thought as to correct club selection rather than grip it and rip it machismo. Great pro shop, well stocked. Goood on course beverage cart coverage - saw her at least five to six times. Friday round lasted five hours, some slow groups on the course and no effective marshal. Club house bar and grill is excellent, with happy hour appetizers that can't be beat for the money. Overall, well worth the thirty minute drive from S.D. La Jolla area. I'll return for another shot at it next visit to San Diego, for sure.
played sat. 3/25. decent time of 4.5 hrs walking. fairways are absolutely horrrendous! Patchy clumps everywhere, diffuse bare hardpack spots, balls hit straight down the middle bounce thirty yards right or left. ? fungus or poor overseeding earlier in year. Strategy was to hit to the " rough ", where at least some grass gave you a decent lie. Greens OK, slow. Bunkers 50:50 - one side of greenside might be fluffy, the other side i.e. hole 10 more like sand on a board.
Hope things improve rapidly as Spring approaches
Gorgeous day 1/28 in Oxnard, and RR Vineyard was a pleasure. The staff couldn't be more friendly, but marshals were out to keep pace of play moving. Tee boxes a little uneven and divoted, fairways overall fair, greens were not excessively fast at all. All in all just had a very enjoyable experience, as usual, at River Ridge.
played 12/3, beautiful day, and played as a twosome at 11 a.m.!! played a 4.5 hr round, at Balboa!! must be a dream. Greens were best i have seen there in years -actually cut a little, rolled faster than ever ( for Balboa a stimp speed of 5 is probably fast! ). Tee boxes, fairways doing better. Unlike Divot didn't find rocks in bunkers. my faith is restored for the time being, kudos to the course super. Until next week . . .
played nearly 5 1/2 hr round today. too many people think too highly of themselves on this course - thinking they can drive a green, hold everyone up, then hit 175 yds. At least I know I can't- you can still play fast and be a high handicap. Tee boxes still suck - divoted, uneven. Greens need heavy duty rolling and cutting. Course super needs to go out and check his crew's handiwork. Pretty ridiculous and bumpy even for a muni. Fairways deserve credit though. Greens were so bad that I would think twice about playing here next week
Got on as a single 10/23 twilight 53 bucks!! Just an outstanding course, beautifully maintained (recent Cal State Amateur Chmp tournament ), greens nearly perfect, tee boxes level, fairways cut tight. Great course layout, elevations are interesting, water always presented a challenge. Lost a few balls, but didn't care. A great course, needs a more complete and separated practice range. Can't wait to return - worth the drive.
played a different course than your previous reviewers. course not in great shape at all - greens were horrible, patchwork repaired very amateurish, stubbly uneven cut, many ball marks. Greenside fringe very unevenly cut with clumps of grass making chipping difficult. Tee boxes uniformly not level, multiple divots even for late morning. Pro shop wouldn't sign us in twenty five minutes ahead of tee time, but sold us a range card minimum 75 balls, and proceeded to call us within 10 minutes. Unnecessary stress on a customer, as well as inefficient. Overall pace of play was OK, but not the best experience for a moderate fee course on a weekend.
really good experience other day - course in much better shape than in the past. particularly better than griffith park currently ( after rains ) Greens cut well, occassionally stubbly, fairly true, holds ball well. Tee boxes over all level and lush. fairways good, not fantastic. and on front nine, trees keep growing right in the path of my ball!!
