Course layout is exceptional. Good tee and approach shots are rewarded, bad ones are punished. Quality of the course is extremely variable. There are months-long periods when conditions can be horrible. Greens are well designed and so poorly maintained that it makes you wonder whether the course has a greens keeper. It doesn't appear that anyone employed by the course ever repairs a divot, waters down a green in the heat of the summer day, or rakes a trap before play begins or ends for the day. Traps have been lined with concrete, which turns out to be a terrible idea. Heavy rains expose the concrete, and the traps are always full of club nicking concrete pebbles. Without the concrete and with a good greens keeper, course would be a gem. Typical round takes 4.15 hours when play is moving fast. Plan for a 5 hour round. Frequently overbooked.

The boxes and fairways are in great shape. It appears the staff has gotten a handle on the green situation. Definitely in better shape than what I was expecting from the recent reviews.

This is one of my favorite courses! The layout is unique and the course conditions are very good. There were a few patchy greens earlier this spring, but they are nice now. I highly recommend this course!

Westridge layout provided plenty of challenges. The greens were a little slow. It took our foursome 3:30 to play 18 holes.

The course was in decent shape and has a picturesque layout.

The only dissappointment came from the condition

Of the greens.

The greens had a lot of sand and were horribly slow.

I would have paid 32 dollars for subpar greens.

Have always loved this course layout and course...normally in great condition. I was absolutely shocked at the condition of the greens, especially front nine. Back nine were okay, but not great. Huge areas of sand / under repair sections. If you landed on the wrong side of those from the pin, just had to pick up and count a 2 putt. No one mentioned it as we checked in. Only paid $29 for twilight rate...if I had paid more I would have been peeved.

Per recent reviews, not sure if disease or weather but greens are gone. Most have 20-50% sand. Have to putt over divots, holes and generally no grass. Remaining grass has not been cut in some time and the green height is of many fairways (which have been cut too low and getting burnt and brown).

Equally frustrating is the course letting groups of 5 off even on weekends. Had 5 ahead of us yesterday, one of which was a woman learning to play with no course etiquette. VERY slow, parked cart near fringe in fairway, etc. 5 hour rounds on course that should be shut down not the way to golf.

Watch out for the ginger taking your green fees. He will try and overcharge you and not give you free drink and food coupons. Make sure to tell everyone in your party about the email deal so he doesn't overcharge anyone. Had 1 person pay full price and he would not refund. If I catch that carrot top away from the course..........

On to the greens.... what greens? All sand, terrible!

Have played here before. Never seen the greens this BAD. Should have been given a discount when the course is in this bad of shape or close the course til it's better shape.

Like putting on uneven shag carpet.

The ball bounced hopped all over.

Usually give a better rating, but the greens were terrible.

Some of it was hail damage, but most was green painted dead spots.

Either way, not worth full price.

Won't be back til they grow back.

The greens were awful. This course shouldn't even be open. Bad excuse that the hail damage did the greens, It's quite evident around the greens NO GRASS -- That has nothing to do with the hail !!!!!!!! Need to shut down until U get it fixed. Should have told the customers how bad everything was, but your in it for the money & that's bad business. I PROMISE I'LL NEVER BE BACK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tee boxes need leveling and seeding. Fairways just starting to recover from winter dormancy. Greens have suffered the most and need extensive work to restore them. Still a fun track and great layout. Not quite back to a condition that would justify full rack pricing though.

The concept of 6 psr 5s, 4s, and 3s (par 72) was unique. Overall the course is in good shape fir beginning of February. Good challenges for any level of golfer. They were completely booked, but was happy with the pace of play. I will definitely play this course again.

I like Westridge interesting layout, music on range, friendly staff. The winter greens are not great - dormant Bermuda.

My only complaint, is the golf carts. They now have gas powered carts that get exhaust fumes in the seating area of cart. At the turn, I went to change carts as I thought ours had an exhaust leak. I was told all carts had this problem - these were newly designed carts that exhaust out the sides of cart by seats. Really.....
