Course keeps getting better

Ive played this course in many different shapes. This is the best its been in a long time. The new owners are really trying to produce the quality of course that is should be. Im sure over time the more expensive items such as golf carts will be upgraded but for now they work just fine. I will be playing here two more time in the coming weeks.

Hidden gem

Had 6:14 am tee time and teed off st the exact time. Though it was early, the greens had been manicured. Some of the greens have been recently airated so it was a liittle bumpy. In a couple this will be excellent and it will feel like putting in glass

Physically impaired

My wife and I, in our early 70s, showed up for our start time. Since I have 5 artificial joints I thought maybe I could ride in a cart however I was told that all the carts were out with the physically impaired using them ok we are prepared to walk. It didn’t take long to realize that anybody that asked was given a golf cart. And true they had none left. I have never seen so many amazingly healthy physically impaired golfers in my life. And I am talking about early 20s etc. we actually had a 4sum go around us because we weren’t fast enough walking as they were in 4 carts. I know that the pro shop and starters doing a great job and it is hard to deal with the younger obnoxious Golfers. It is still a nice course and my wife and I will give it a try again maybe the health department will realize how stupid these rules are for a game played out doors.

A great surprise in Camarillo

I had seen Sterling Hills on the map for years, but never ventured out to play it. Noone I knew had ever played it, so I didn't want to be the first to drive over an hour to be disappointed.

That all changed today. At a HotDeal of $30 for a morning 18 I decided to risk it, and boy was I pleasantly surprised.

Sterling Hills is a GREAT layout! While it does meander through a housing community, it hardly feels like your textbook "development" course. Elevated tee shots, countoured greens, and just in general holes that can be played in a multitude of ways made for an experience that i will undoubtedly look to relive in a very near future.

If live in the area, you probalby want this place to remain "hidden". But if you're in SB or LA, you will definitely want to venture out to experience Sterling Hills for yourself.

Losing that loving feeling

Sterling has always been one of my favorites. I used to call it a public country club course. But with the Covid-19 two month break and getting back to the course reopening it appears there is a fair amount of maintenance overlooked. I know it can get expensive but the course overall looks dried out. Need more water or feed for the grass to liven it up. Lots of weedy patches in areas that used to be beautiful fairways and scenic greenways. Hope this formerly magnificent specimen to Camarillo paradise isn't heading the way of another public course in town that has been hijacked by someone more interested in development revenue than green space.
Staff is still the best. They are accommodating and try really hard to make up for the loss of former benefits temporarily closed because of Covid-19 issues.

Great greens

Walked the blues, POP 4 hours 15 minutes. Checkin was easy, tee boxes level. Good coverage on the fairways. Nice soft sand in the traps. Greens were in excellent condition. Course is in the best shape I’ve ever seen it.

Woke up today at 6:45 for my 840 teatime with an email that says they have canceled my teatime that I’ve made two weeks ago and completely ruined my day golf now is the worst app in the world
