The course was challenging from the blue tees. The weather was great! The greens were in fair condition, but the grass surrounding fairways needed trimming. Also, there were quite a few areas roped off for repair on the fairways themselves. The pace of play was considerably slow due to the group ahead of us. It would have been great to have a marshal there to monitor this and remind them to speed up or let the group behind them pass. We were waiting at least a full three minutes, and sometimes longer per shot for them to get out of the way.

A Marshall really needs to be driving course pushing players along. On a busy Saturday you should not allow a golf lesson from a player to another who has never played and plays 3-4 balls per shot. Players also need to play from the correct tee boxes. If you hit the ball 100 yards you don't play from the BLUE TEES. I FEEL A MARSHAL COULD FIX THIS.

That is my only complaint. I hesitate booking next week because this happens every weekend we have played.

After calling in the early morning to inquire about tee times and probable pace of play we made the long drive up and got caught up in the issues of their other local course (Camarillo Springs) that had them sending their reservations to Sterling Hills.

Overall the course was really nice. It was my second time playing here and from the last time it seemed to be in better condition. Only a few of the tee boxes were in bad condition or bumpy and uneven. Pace of play was really poor our round was about 5 hrs for a twosome. Stuck behind 2 foursomes plus a coach, about every green we came up to I alone would fix 3 fresh ball marks or poorly fixed ball marks. After the 3rd hole it became annoying as they would end up in my putting line at times. I guess they don't believe in fixing ball marks. I had a similar experience with pace of play last time around not sure if that's always the case but to start at 12:30 and end at 5:20 is not ideal. Course was not busy since it had been scattered showers all morning so we could have played through but weren't given the chance.

This course was pretty wet after a few storms had passed through, but it still played well and was totally worth the $20 rate. We were the last group to go out and played at a perfect pace. The tee boxes were in pretty good shape although the greens did have some puddles from the rain.

Looking forward to coming back under drier conditions!

After one solid week of rain this course was not too bad to play. No carts were allowed on fairways-cart path only conditions. A couple of the greens actually had puddles on them and the bunkers were "little lakes"...so we made sure to try and hit the ball as close as we could to the cart path and stay away from the bunkers LOL.....only 15 people played for the entire day BUT we all seemed to show up at the same time...even so, we all moved along just fine.

Played the Blues (6395/71.1/127) in 4H, 15M on a clear, calm afternoon with temps in the 70's. Started as a single and was a 4some, playing with Brian, Jason & John by the back 9, when we joined up with slower 4somes in front of us. The tees had good coverage, mostly level and only the par 3's needed divot attention. The fairways were mostly roped off and decent. Many fairways have been resodded @ different times and now have 3 or more types of grass. The rough has many bare hardpan areas, mostly thin coverage with some lush areas mixed in. The greens are undulating, medium fast and firm, but they still held full shots well. I find the greens here hard to putt, there is more break than I read. Hardly a straight putt anywhere with lots of subtle break, and a few greens have hills or crests that produce severe breaks. The traps were in good condition, nicely maintained with dark brown sand. The customer service was excellent, they got me out a little early and the friendly Marshall was out riding around. No drink cart, but they do have a snack shop available @ the turn. Par 71 where you do not see the 2nd par 5 until the 16th hole which to me is a minus. However, good design overall with many fun/interesting golf holes. Okay course in okay condition currently.
