Great place for new golfer to practice, no time pressure. Unfortunately, many of holes were dirt,, so even a novice would play better on grass!

It is clear they cannot afford water so whether we see this course open by next June is a good question...best that you can do with this course is consider hitting a bucket of range balls at different targets, and as far as putting...only about 5 of the greens can actually be called greens. Kukuya grass in growing in the middle of half of them....

Have played this curse a hundred times in the past , had not been there in about 3 months and cannot believe how they have let the course run down, it is running a close second to San Bernardino Golf Club which is closing in about 6 months..looks like the owners that took over about 2 years ago have given up....guess we will have nothing left but Yucaipa Valley by next year...

Price was good but the course wasn't very nice. Really run down . Ran out of carts and balls for the range. Fairways pretty much didn't even have grass on some holes. Try at your own risk

Calimesa Country Club was a great course to play on. This outing was my first 18-hole course. Some of the tees were positioned above the pin which made for an exciting hole. The ground was somewhat hard, which actually helped out a lot on my drive. Once the ball hits the hard ground, it's going to continue to bounce and roll maybe another 50+ yards. I definitely recommend this course to anyone who likes a moderately challenged course.

This is the course closest to my house so I'm able to go on short notice occasionally. Usually find some great deals around lunch. Fun course, little dried out in some spots. Greens are fairly well cared for, fairways are below average. Nice trees and shade. Driving range is garbage

I love this course! I consider it my home course even though I live in Yucaipa. The course layout is great!! It's really fun and imaginative. Greens are fair and never too slow or fast. But the fairways... they're begging for water! Lately I'll move my ball to one of the few grassy patches in the fairway as to not tear up my clubs. My wife won't play here again until they water more. It's a shame because after this last winter, after all the rain, the course conditions were fantastic, the best in years!! Water the fairways and greens more and you'll be back to 10+

The greens were fine, only issue was water in the holes. couldn't really put the ball as the holes were full of water. The fairways need a lot of help. It is like hitting off of a hard surface. The food at the club was really good and the staff friendly. You pay what you get.

In need of serious maintenance. Only the greens had decent grass but they were in desparate need of mowing and rolling. Course not even good for a decent practice round, regardless of the inexpensive rate from GN. Not recommended unless you want to take out a first time golfer just so they can learn to hit a golf ball on other than a driving range.

Trees were mature oak and pines, very nice, However, I should have been paid to play the course. The greens were over watered, soggy with almost every cup filled with water. The fairways were hard, dry, full of weeds and bare spots and in need of seeding . Sad, could be a nice course if properly managed.

Course is in poor condition. I golfed here 4 years ago and it had about 4 temporary greens at the time and was in bad shape but decided to give it another try and same thing hole 12 was completely closed and there were 2 other greens closed with no temporary greens set up. Fairways are in poor shape splotchy grass. Definitely won't be returning.

The fairways were terrible, (brown patches etc) and the greens were saturated. You'd figure with all the rain that we have had here in southern California, that the fairways would be better kept.

The 5,971 yds, par 70, from the blue tees, seems like it should be a simple course. You'll find that, if you play from the blues, this is a challenging layout. 90 degree doglegs on the two par fives require precision on second shots. Two of the par 3s are nearly 200 yards. The course condition is rough in many places, and the small greens are slow and difficult to read. Played the course on a Saturday in under three hours, teeing off at noon. GolfNow hot deal was a steal.
