Decent front nine. Very nice back nine. Greens were smooth and fast. Fairways average. Wet from recent rain. Played with a couple of local guys (I am from Canada) and enjoyed the day. Good value .

I live down the street from the Vineyard course, but rarely play it. I remember a couple years ago it was lacking some water, and got too hard and fast. The course has rebounded nicely, and I will begin to play it some more. I also played here 2 weeks ago, and the greens were ridiculously fast. This time around they were way more manageable. The fairways are a little thin, but playable for sure. Some bunkers have good sand, and others do not. Tees were ok, and greens had a lot of ball marks, but they were flat. For $49 on a Sunday, I can’t really complain too much. It was good, and the pace was also good.

Played with two older gentlemen who showed me ropes to the course. They were great guys and I had a blast playing with them. The back nine is much more challenging than the front but more beautiful as well. I would recommend to anyone coming to visit this area!

My 5th time to play this course this year. Pace of play is 4.5 hours and the course is in very good conditions. Greens are fast and challenging. Food options are good on both the turn and/or before/after your round. We arrived early to warm up and starter offered for us to tee off earlier due to last minute cancellation.

Course was in great shape but played very tough. Pin placements were very difficult on most greens, on slopes with very little room for error, and they were very fast! Challenging course for 20+ handicappers, but a really nice track. Well designed!

Greens were great! Very quick. We had a 11:15 teetime but didn’t get off until 11:45. Barely finished with enough sunlight. The gps said we were 1 hour behind pace at the 15 th hole. Had to wait about 20 minutes because they didn’t have any carts available when we checked in. Someone either overbooked or lost track of something.

Like I said, best tee boxes ever. Every single one was perfect. They are level, cut to the appropriate height and feel fantastic under your feet. The fairways where in great shape. Some of the greens had a lot of ball marks but not all. The ones that didn’t have many divots where in awesome condition. They rolled true and pin placements where good. This course can either reward you for great shots or punish you for bad shots. If you landed on the middle of the fairway you always had a level shot with perfect length grass. If you land off or near the edges of the fairway the ball will be either above or below your feet. Nice long holes, good rate of play at 7:45 am tee off. I would have to say this is one of my favorite courses for the money. It’s true my hard to beat the value on this course when you use online booking apps. I wish it wasn’t 50 minutes away. I would play this course 2 times a week if it was my local course. Good job to the staff at the vineyard, also the breakfast burrito I had was awesome. I’m very pleased and look forward to returning.

Course layout was good. Back 9 much better than front. Starter was very nice. The pace of play is incredibly slow. It will be at least a 5 hr round probably closer to 5 1/2. The greens are just ok but like a lot of courses players just refuse to fix their ball marks. Not really the courses fault. It is an on value for your money if you know before hand the pace will be at a turtles pace.

We enjoyed our round, although there was lots of waiting time at each T-box. The fairways were well kept and great to hit off of, the greens were well tended and nicely challenging. The setting was beautiful...lots of trees and green grass, a novelty in SoCal. We will definitely be back....it was not too hard and not too easy.

A lot of the greens had more divots than usual, but are being repaired. Likely from overuse, but still got a few pars out of the 12 holes I played..

I was lucky enough to play with a veteran player. He gave me valuable information on how to play this course since it was my first time here. I like the design of the back nine. Nice putting greens, water in play on a few holes. You need to bring your patience since it can be very slow even on a weekday. 14th can be tricky because you can put your ball on the water off the tee very easy. 13th is a lovely par 3. Wish I can put a similar one on my backyard. 18th has a gorgeous view of the area off an elevated tee. Will be back!

I was played first time here, the course seemed average but it was too busy so it is hard to remember how was my play. I had to wait to get the cart but people behind us got their cart right away. I had to quit butting and was busy to hit the ball regardless of where and how I hit. Also although I do not know the reason, I felt sorry because the cart of course manager kept chasing only us and told us move fast twice. maybe my handicap is too much for this course. I will not play here again until I become a single.

Greens are great and the rest is manicured nicely. Some spots are muddy from leaky sprinklers. Although, I see the 1st tee box had some water repair. A little mud is fine, just bought new white shoes though :-).

Some parts of the fairways are a bit muddy. Also, usually oversold on times. One example, is the cart didn't have enough juice. Played 12 holes and barely got back to the clubhouse! Beautiful day and the greens were good enough.

I hesitate to play this course bcs it is typically slow pace. Decided to give it another try and pace was worse than ever. First of all there were not enough golf carts so we could not get out at our assigned tee time. Front nine took 3 hours...5:15 for whole round. Plus course allowed a 5some out 2 groups ahead. I like the course just can’t understand why pace of play drags so much here
