Good Conditions for August
Played this track back in June when the place was immaculate. I expected Aviara a little worse related to conditions and was fairly pleased. Tee to green looks pretty good. It's not spring conditions but its pretty impressive for August in SoCal. The fairways were great and the rough was on the light side. The greens were great. A little slow for me but rolled true.
Not sure if its worth the full price of admission right now but its pretty close. However, if you are looking to get your best bang for your buck, play this place in May/June when the conditions and greens are the best SoCal golf has to offer. You will not be disappointed!
Great staff and service. One minor problem I have...the golf carts are below average. Not something you expect when paying $$$
First Class Course
Really enjoyed this course. It can be fair from White tees and challenging from Blue tees. Greens roll very true. It played firm and fast but very fair. Staff are very nice and the food is pretty good, but I am a picky eater.
Very fun course. Great condition and fast greens. Used Golf Now and saved some cash.
Rode the Blues (6591/72.5/135) in 4H, 15M, matched up with 3 nice guys twilight. The weather was overcast, breezy and in the 70's.
A rare Palmer design near the coast. This layout contains many of the things I like about courses. Some forced carries but nothing outrageous. Challenging w/o being ridiculous. Constantly up/down rolling hills, HUGE green complexes, numerous well placed, beautiful plants/water features and many strategically placed large bunkers. The entire course is still in excellent playing condition after recently hosting the LPGA Kia Classic.
The tees were mostly lush with few unfixed divots.
The fairways were mostly lush and well maintained.
The rough was lush and just tall enough that the ball usually say down.
The sand traps were excellent. Nicely maintained with good quality sand.
The huge Poa greens were smooth and putted medium speed. They were firm, even nice high shots released.
The customer service was top notch all around, they obviously place a priority on providing customer service here. Nice GPS and complementary bottled water provided on the carts. Ample water stations on the course. Definitely recommended.
Save your money
For the money they charge, I would expect a course in better shape, ESPECIALLY on the last day of May. Tee boxes aren’t level, and several with missing grass. Fairways were punched, no notification of that... and they also wanted $170 for a mid week afternoon time. $33 got you 3 domestic beers, and an over priced, microwaved potatoe/egg breakfast burrito that was supposed to come with chorizo. Must’ve been an off day? I won’t be returning to find out. To put in a different perspective; Poppy Hills in Pebble Beach, CA charges $130 ($102 to NCGA members) for the same time, AND that course warrants the price tag.
The total ocean.
A course worth playing, although expense. The Kia LPGA tournament is there next week so conditions were excellent. Staff is friendly, starter's joke not very funny though. Better course than Torrey Pines, but you cannot see the ocean
Decent but over hyped
Not worth what they charge. The course is in pretty poor condition for the amount of hype. It took us 5 hours and 20 minutes to play 18. The workers are all very kind and friendly. I play here about every six weeks simply because it’s close to my home. The greens are decent in Feb, March, and April only. It’s realky too bad. This could be a great place.
