Played 3/6 with a buddy at 120 for 26 bucks walking. Hard to beat that rate. Will say though, it was a prime reminder why, with so many other local options, I do not enjoy going to this course at all. Every few years I head back here and get my reminder on why I don't like playing here.
I'll start with the good - the fairways were in great shape. Nice and green; easy to hit from. Love the condition that these were in. Rough was also in great shape. Dark green grass, and very few patchy areas. Greens were also in great shape...little slow, kinda shaggy, but rolled true and easy enough to putt on. Didn't find any bunkers, so I don't have any input here.
Now to the bad...the pace of play here was god awful. In 4.5 hours we only got through 12 holes before we quit. It was so bad here, that on number 6, there were 3 foursomes playing together when we finished up on 5 so that they could all get through the hole (all groups hit to the green at the same time, then the appropriate 4 somes putted out).
To me, there are two key indicators as to whether or not I would recommend a course...pace of play and greens. In this case, the pace of play outweighs any positives that the greens would bring. I cannot recommend this course when Moorpark Country Club and Tierra Rejada are both less than 10 minutes away.» Close
