I know that when I play Eagle Crest that conditions will be less than ideal. However, I really enjoy the "bones" of this course and the staff is fantastic about getting us out early, so I tolerate the conditions. Generally the greens are good here, but they have not yet healed from the recent aeration, so they were slow and bumpy. I can say that as bad as the fairways were, they are better than the last time I played. Much more coverage and less bare areas. The greenside bunkers had plenty of sand, but it was not raked and in most cases, totally soaked.

The tee boxes were in desperate need of mowing. It was like teeing your ball in the rough. Despite the conditions, I enjoyed the round and nice to get out and around quickly, although we did have a lot of maintenance to contend with this morning.

Nice to return to Montebello. I've always enjoyed playing here. While not the most interesting course, it provides a decent test and some nice holes. Because I am not too bright and still play the back tees, a number of the par 4 holes are now just too log for me to reach in regulation. Someday, I will smarten up and move up.. Not a lot to add to the most recent reviews. Agree that the greens are the best part of the course now. I also totally agree that switching nines is not a good decision.

While I found the "old" #9 a lot of fun to play, it is not a good finishing hole.

Our super early on a very mild morning. Not at all busy today ? (Are people going back to work? ) I was very impressed with the greens, considering they were punched not that long ago. They rolled true and had decent speed. Fairways, while spotty had good coverage and were quite green. There was lots of sand in the bunkers, but none were raked yet, but they showed the potential to be really good. Rough was inconsistent.

I can never say enough good things about Sam in the pro shop. He is the best ! One of the reasons I play here frequently. Always enjoy playing here. The only annoying thing is the back nine play, which I seem to encounter almost every time.

Out early as usual on an overcast mild morning. Not too busy which was nice. Greens are about 80% recovered from the aeration. However they they still have not regained their speed. While it makes chipping & putting much easier, it is an adjustment from what I am used too. Normally the greens are so quick, it makes any putt above the hole or "short side" a real challenge. Now - no problem. (I should enjoy it while it lasts )

Overall the course is in very nice condition, except for a few of the tee boxes. I understand they will be subcontracting an outside company to laser and re-grass the tees on both courses, which would be a welcome improvement.

One of my favorite LA County golf courses. Love the views, the deer, and the mix of holes. The greens to me are the most critical part of this course, because that's the defense of this place. Greens much better than expected, in fact they are better than I can remember them being for some time. ( I sure hated when they were to wet they left foot prints) In fact, overall the course was in better condition than I've seen it for some time. Add to that the price with the senior discount and it's such a bargain.

My only complaint is that I tend to run into back nine play, but not an issue this time. All and all, a great day with beautiful weather

It's been several months since I played here, so nice to make the short drive back to Oso Creek. Always enjoyable to play this shorter, fun track. A good change from the "big" courses. Course is in better condition than the last time I played. It sure looks like they are making some improvements to the course, which is appreciated.

I totally agree with Dave's opinion as to holes #9 & #18. They are out of character with this course, and are to some degree unfair. Would like to see both of these holes modified. Otherwise the course is fun to play. Conditions have improved, so now it's just some refining to the course

A joy to return to Eldo. I've always felt that this was the best of the Long Beach courses, although not my favorite. (Rec Park has always been my favorite and most fun to play ) But El Dorado presents the greatest challenge.

Very impressed with the course. Greens were particularly good. Quicker than I can remember them being. Fairways had good coverage, with a few areas needing attention. Just nice overall condition. Not in any sand, but it appeared decent.

I had stayed away from the Long Beach courses in part because I feel they are now over priced, but these days, every course is over priced. Still it was fun to return to a track that I've played many times over the years, and it has held up well and continues to provide a wonderful test of golf. Plus it's nice to enjoy a walker friendly course.

Scheduled for the second group off, but thankfully the first group. ( A foursome) allowed us to go ahead of them, so was greatly appreciated. As a result, we were able to play in a tick over 2 1/2 hours. A very nice comfortable pace at this course, which can be rather demanding, particularly when you play poorly.

The greens were a major disappointment. I thought that since it had been three weeks since they were punched, they would be OK - NOT ! They were bumpy & slow ! Both bunkers I found were filled with water from sprinklers, so hard to fairly rate them. Fairways for the most part were fine, as were the tee boxes.

I was taught that if you can't say something nice, don't say anything, so my feeling about customer service will be to just say nothing. I like Cross Creek. I think it is a fine course, presents quite a stern test and is most interesting, but I won't be rushing back any time soon.

First out on a very busy morning. With the North course still closed due to aeration, there are 1000 members vying for tee times on the South. Greens have still not fully recovered from the punching, which was four weeks ago. Unacceptable ! Generally 2-3 weeks is all it takes. Hope the North course recovers more quickly ?

Otherwise the overall condition of the course is fine. Blue tees on #6 is beat up and is temporarily closed. News is that rakes will be made available beginning 4/20/21. About time. Also those horrible contraptions attached to the pins will be removed.

Looking forward to both courses open and getting into "summer shape"

While I generally play Oceanside Muni, because they've recently punched greens, it was a nice change to get back out to Arrowood. One of the things I enjoy about this course is that holes #1 and #10 are very easy and allow you to begin both nines with an comfortable par/birdie opportunity. Plus there are several "scoreable" holes on each nine to offset a few very tough holes. A nice mix !

As Gary indicated in his review, the areas around the greens provide an interesting challenge, something I have not seen much in Southern California. (Much more common in the Midwest)

Overall I was impressed with the condition of the course, Greens rolled rather considering they were punched less than a month ago. Enjoyed the fairways, which provided nice runout.

Staff here is always great and makes you feel welcome, which is a nice touch.

Not a whole lot to add to Larry's recent review. Thought the greens rolled pretty well, and were faster than they appeared. Good coverage in most fairways, a little thin/tight, which helps with the roll out. Rough was spotty at times.

Staff is always friendly here and very accommodating. Fun course, so long as you get out early.

It had been a while since I've played here. I never seem to score well at this course, and today was no exception. Course just does not "fit my eye" Conditions however were quite good, better than expected, even the greens which have recovered from the aeration reasonably well.
Fairways had good coverage. Tee boxes also in nice shape.

Staff was friendly and very accommodating. I would have to recommend this course right now.
