low quality service in proshop, high member fee

Such a bad customer service in pro shop to members !
Michael Padilla was a very rude and had a bad attitude and made me so... upset.
I forgot to bring the member card, they don't give out the range balls even they know I am member and they have member names listed in the register systems.

A week before they make all the members wait for range balls to pickup balls. There was an hour delay.
They increased member fees to $60 instead $50 with out any notice.
Why is the member fee higher than others but a low quality of service ?
I dont understand why they are so mean to customers.

Dirt track.

This would be a beautiful course if it had grass instead of hard pan for fairways. Never seen a city owned course in all my travels this neglected. It is very hard to get your club on the ball when it is on hard pan between two clumps of grass in the middle of the fairway. I've heard of fairway hazards before but never the entire fairway a hazard. They should rent dune buggies in place of golf carts. You need shocks to drive across the fairways. Other then the poor course conditions, the brave souls that play there, the staff and facilities were Great. Not so great however to get me to waste $40 on again.

More dirt than grass.

It's hard to even call this a golf course. More of an open patch of land that you can go hit balls at. There was literally more dirt on the "fairways" than there was grass. I can't believe they get away with charging $50+ for a round.

Terrible!

This is the worst course I’ve ever played. The fairways are nothing but mud and dirt. It should only be a $15 to $20 course at most. The driving range was amazing, I just wish they would actually take care of this course. I was very disappointed, and felt I deserved a refund. Please do not waste your money on this place.

Disappointed

I want to love this course for its potential however the upkeep and care for it just won’t let me. Management did a great job adding a fantastic driving range and the practice areas are well kept but why not the actual course? I began playing golf a little over 3yrs ago and every time I’ve gone to this course I’ve been told that the fairways are being worked on. When? How? There has been zero improvement to the fairways. Why not use the same grass that was used on the range or next door at the Goodyear blimp site on the fairways? Just shocking and disappointing to see what can be a great links style course not be cared for. So much opportunity to drive in revenue for the course and city with the LA Chargers in town if the upkeep was much better. I can only assume that the players and staff would rather commute elsewhere than to play at this course. Let’s get some urgency here!

Perfect Greens/Horrible Fairways

The greens are in excellent shape as they have been for years. I understand that there is a problem growing the grass in he fairways and it was really bad this last round. There are a lot of holes where you had more dirt/mud than grass. I don't think I'll play here again any time soon.

A declining gem.

The years have not been kind to this course. The greens are superb with many challenging pin locations. Tee boxes are in good shape. New driving range and chipping , putting areas are excellent. The fairways are a mess. To play here you must reposition your ball to a playable lie. Which is possible to do. That's it.

Do not listen to the Golf Now response. I can attest to it as well as any golfer that has been to this course recently. There are people at a table approaching everyone to come sign the petition to not close the course. Go see for yourself if you really do not believe me. I just do not want anyone else to waste $50 like I did.

Fairways Have Gone From Bad to Terrible!

Being retired, I play golf twice a week and have played Victoria every 2 or 3 months for the past 3 years. Unfortunately, yesterday will be the last time I play this course until we have very substantial Southern California rain as the course is now dried out and the fairways have deteriorated to a point that it is no longer enjoyable, or even playable (frankly). And, at a price of $43 to play Mon-Fri, there are far superior options to play. (By the way, they used to offer a $37 special which included a hot dog, however have discontinued this deal.).

They recently opened a new driving range which has terrific grass. My question is, why can’t they do this on their fairways that need the most help? Until they do, Victoria is now “off my list” of playable courses.

The course was very well layed out. The pace was very quick. My biggest problem with this course was how “patchy” it was. There were large pockets on and off the fairways in which there was no grass at all. Played several shots from the fairway off of dirt. Very poor grass quality here. I would not recommend playing here.

Is what it is

Are the fairways in bad shape? Yes. But I think that may be because it sits on top of an old landfill. The greens are pretty much immaculate though. The bottom line is; you get what you pay for. I paid $30 for green fees and cart fees. Played at 2pm and knocked out 18 in 3 hours, and I'd do it again.
