Out early on another overcast morning. Very busy today as only one course was open due to the ladies having a member-guest on the North Course. The South is in very nice condition right now. Greens not as quick as I expected, but still had decent pace and were receptive to well struck shots. Good coverage in the fairways, tee boxes and bunkers excellent.

Since we have had zero hot weather this year, the fairways are holding up very well. Let's see what happens if/when we get the "normal" summer weather typical to Coto
Received an invite to play Skylinks, which I have not played in a long time. While Skylinks has never been my favorite of the Long Beach courses, I used to play there fairly often before all the price increases. I thought the course was in pretty nice overall condition, far better than I remember it being. Only the bunkers were lacking. Greens rolled well and had nice pace. Good coverage as well in the fairways. Staff was accommodating, but not what I'd call friendly.
First out at 7am on another overcast morning. Much busier than expected but being first out - no pace of play issues. Course right now is in very nice condition. Having just completed the "Windmill Classic" tournament last weekend, the course had been prepared for that tourney, and it showed. Greens have lost a little of their speed from the tourney which had them close to 11.5 to 12.0, but now seemed to closer to 10.5. Fairways, bunkers, tee boxes all excellent. Rough is just OK.
Have not played Glen Ivy for a few years, so was excited to return. While we had the second time off out at 6:09am, we were able to get out first, which I thought was great ......... until we ran into a reverse shotgun which began on #15, with two groups on each hole, so we bailed and drove in. I just wish someone would have told us about this because we could have made adjustments. So unfair !

Overall I thought the course was in much better condition than when I played here in 2020. While the greens were a bit bumpy and too slow for my taste, they certainly were acceptable. Good coverage in the fairways. The greenside bunkers had plenty of sand, but were compacted, which made getting "through" the sand to flop it out rather difficult.

The staff was really great, except for the fact they failed to advise us of the reverse shotgun. I have very mixed feeling about that.
Have not played Tustin Ranch for a number of years (Primarily due to cost) Out early at 5:30am on a mild morning. Fairly busy considering it was still somewhat dark out. Lots of maintenance, which I kind of expected, but it would have been nice if they would have had pins in the greens. Apparently the mower who was in front of me just left them all out, because another person was going to change pin locations. Finally able to get in front of him after #9, so at least I had flagstick on the back nine.

Truth is I was surprised and disappointed with the conditions. Greens were still not fully recovered from the aeration, but beyond that, there were numerous bare spots on the greens and they were certainly neither quick nor true. Same thing in the fairways. Mostly good, but more bare areas than I would have expected, particularly when you charge so much. Did not find a single bunkers, but they all appeared fine.

I frequently ask myself why people pay so much $$ to play some of these course, when for a fraction, you can play many of the municipal courses. But South Orange County seems to have no problem charging whatever the market will bare. Location - location- location

I will say that the staff in the pro shop and the starter were fantastic.
Out early on an overcast morning. Have to agree with the prior review, that this course has greatly improved over the past several months. Kudos to the maintenance staff for their efforts, as the improvement is very much noticeable. Greens rolled well, decent coverage in the fairways, and most of the tee boxes were so much better than in the past. As always the staff is friendly and accommodating, and for South Orange County, reasonably priced
Out early on a very mild morning. As usual, it was busy, but the staff was efficient and we were able to get out on time, in fact we actually got out a few minutes early. The course was in much better condition than it was when I last played here in November. The greens rolled nicely, but were much slower than I expected or that they appeared. For the most part, good coverage in the fairways. Everything was nice and green thanks to all the rains we received this year.

I always enjoy playing this shorter course. Despite the length, this course offers a fun challenge with the interesting green complexes. Just a fun mix of holes. My only complaint is the increase in green fees from just a few months ago. Welcome to 2023 and Orange County
Out early on an overcast morning, which midway through the round turned into rain. Really, this is May in Southern California, it's not supposed to rain at this time year? Kind of busy this morning to my surprise.

Course is actually in pretty nice overall condition right now. The greens have recovered nicely from the recent aeration. Fairways have good coverage, tee boxes very good, bunkers are excellent. Only area not great is the rough which tends to be inconsistent.

If we ever get some sunny warm weather, the course should get even better.
Out early on a misty morning. Greens have not yet completely healed from the recent aerification. They were not bad, just not what I have become accustomed too from Dos Lagos. They did still have decent pace though. I enjoy this course and always look forward to playing here, but the course was as "scruffy" as I've seen it. While never immaculate by any means, there were just a lot a areas which were beat up, weeds growing in the bunkers, etc. I hope this is only a temporary condition?

Ruth was as always a joy to deal with in the pro shop. Nice to begin the day with a positive person to inter-act with.
Nice to return to Rio Hondo. Have always enjoyed this course. Conditions were about what I expected after having read the last review, although the greens were better than expected. Some bare areas in the fairways, but generally good coverage. Did not find any bunkers, but they appeared OK. Staff was as usual friendly and accommodating . A really beautiful to morning to play golf on a fun track. Recommend this course.
Nice to get back out on the North course after being closed for a week to perform aerification on the greens. As expected the greens had considerable residual sand. They rolled surprisingly well, but were slow, again as would be expected. Fairways were in nice shape, but was interesting was maintenance was sodding a few areas, which was great. But why wasn't that done last week when the course was closed?

Tee boxes, bunkers are excellent. Rough is as always inconsistent. Still, it was nice to return to the North, which is my preferred course.
Had not played Yucaipa Valley since just prior to Covid, so was excited when I was able to snag a first time out at 6:09am. Lady in the shop was friendly and o[pened on time, but wish she would have told us that the ladies were having a reverse shotgun at 8:30am. We were just driving to the 18th tee when all the ladies came driving out. Fortunately they were nice enough to allow us to play #18 rather than make us wait for goodness knows how many groups were out there. We could have easily beat them had we known about it.

The course was in overall good condition. Nice coverage in the fairways, greens rolled well, but were much slower than I am accustomed too. No issues with rough or tee boxes. As for the greenside bunkers, the first two I found actually appeared to have had lots of new sand added, however the next couple were thin, soaked with water, and did have rock throughout.

Pleasant morning and an enjoyable experience. $39 w/cart seemed to be a fair price. Getting out first obviously allowed for a great pace of play. Only downside was the 70 mile drive home.
