The greens are very fast here. It is hard to stick a landing on them as well. You must adjust your play to these conditions.

A good game plan challenge. Lots of sloping fairways, strategically positioned sand traps and water hazards. Slow play though due to several 2&3 somes, and one single. We joined with the single and still took us 5 hrs. No course Marshall to assist speed up the slow pokes.

It took over three hours to play nine holes. When I courteously complained to staff they could have cared less. Too bad as this could be an interesting place to play.

First of all the rate was $19 and with my rewards it was free (incredible value). A great layout, fairways need a little work, green were quick and fabulous. I would recommend this course to anyone.

I haven't played this course since it was called the Auld Course.Fairways were very dry & desperately need watering...the only plus with this condition is that your ball will roll a little further. Greens were also in rough shape as several ball marks were not repaired (c'mon peeps take the time to repair while waiting to putt). I landed in 4 bunkers that day & the sand was rock hard!!! Lastly the pace was so slow on the Saturday afternoon....seemed like 2 groups ahead were some beginners playing super slow. Didn't seem like there was a players asst or marshal around to assist.

Alert!!! 6 1/2 hour round Alert!!!

Our tee time was 1130, and we did not finish 18 holes. Yes, that is correct, an 1130 tee time unable to finish 18 holes. Unacceptable! the pace of play, and zero marshalls to monitor.

First, I knew going to the course that it would be in bad shape, and i was fine with that. To make sure its very clear, the course is like concrete. You might as well be playing on the street. If my buddy did not get a Groupon from Santa, then i would never pay this dump.

By the 4th hole, we found out why it was so slow. Two groups of buddies had joined together, and we had to call the clubhouse to break up their party. Sadly the pace of play never recovered, since they were not that good anyway.

After the horrible round, and not being able to finish; we figured lets just have a beer. Part 2 of the horrible customer service. The girl sold us the beer, and then proceeded to tell us that she was closing, and we had to sit outside. All while one of the NFL games was on. We were not the only ones in the bar either. Come on, its a bar on a golf course, you don't close till the last person leaves. Especially if they are buying from you. She must have had better plans.

Finally, and the worst part of all this is, i emailed the course general manager to let him know about this, 48 hours later not a response. Not to worry you got my $35 dollars, but you will never see another penny form myself, or the 30+ people in my golf group. Your course has been blacklisted by my group. Great decision to not respond to me,

Please do not give this course any of your hard-earned money. You can play so many other courses in that area for the same price.

A great layout but the condition of the course is very poor...fairways need water badly and no sand in overwhelming majority of bunkers (hard dirt...like hitting off concrete). Play was slow...almost 5 hours...and a beer cart would have made it more enjoyable.

Shout out to Josh who works there.

Had a great day. Played with a staff member who helped us navigate the course. He was a great host.

Greens are fast. The fairways are a little barren in spots but enjoyed the day

Santa Ana gusts up to 40 mph made this one of the most difficult golf days I've ever experienced. Add on the fact that the greens were ridiculously fast and it was a recipe for a very difficult day.

Between tumbleweeds, closely mowed fairways and extremely fast greens made it nearly impossible to keep the balls straight and on target. I would suggest the greenskeeper let the greens grow out to slow the putting and have a heart with the pin positions.

Brutal conditions!!
