The Ike was long
We played the Ike which was long and challenging But the fairways were under repair and in poor condition. The green were good and pace of play was good.
Play the Babe not the Ike
The Babe is in great condition from tee to green...although there are some spots in the fairways that are dry or dead. But stay away from the Ike all together.....for now. They are re-soding majority of the fairways and it won't be until end of the year before I pay to play the Ike. But if they don't be careful the Babe can potentially become damaged due to so much traffic..
Excellent golf course. Well maintained except for a few of the sand traps. Let’s get some sand in them please.
I have played both the Babe and the Ike in the past week. Both are in great shape. The greens are a little slower than they usually are but still roll true. Pace of play was fine, 4:10
Have been visiting the Industry Hills courses for 17 years and have never seen the Babe course in worse condition. Fairways are bare, tee boxes uneven, no sand in the traps and overall poor. Don’t know what is going on there but it is sad to see such a fine layout in such state of disrepair.
This review is for the BABE course at Industry Hills. Checking in at Pacific Palms is a bit awkward and perhaps even unfriendly. We arrived at the pro shop only 20 minutes before our tee time and were told to come back in 5-10 minutes to get our cart key because the Starter was taking a break (??). We didn't quite understand why the carts were being held hostage so close to our tee time. Anyhow, the BABE round starts with two narrow, unforgiving, uncomfortable tee shots. The first five holes are par 4's and many require something other than driver off the tee. The only par 3 on the front plays 250+ from the blue tees. Hole 9 is perhaps my least favorite hole and feels crammed into the edge of the property. Having said all of that, Industry Hills is kept in wonderful condition. The layout is challenging and mostly fair. Most every hole is tight and requires a precise tee shot and approach. The greens roll true and have many different difficult pin locations available. This is a course that is best played multiple times to learn the best strategy required to attack, and when it is best to play conservative shots.
Super nice course well maintained and challenging.
Super course conditions and friendly staff. The only down side for my round is the cart broke down, but we got another delivered within a half hour. The good news if you are reading this is next week they are getting all new carts.
Following up on the review above, played approximately 3 weeks later than the posted date... I don't believe there were new carts being used and we saw two broken-down carts on the course.
Great golf experience
Played this course for the 2nd time, same great experience.
Worst experience checking in
tee time 1:50pm, Checked in at 1:25pm and had me get the cart at 1:40pm. Signed and assigned the carts without keys, could not start the carts and went back to the shop to pickup the keys and all staff looked like being busy.
Staff was helpless and critical
The staff around the course was very quick to chime in on where you could not park our golf cart. When asking where we could park them, he had no answer and told us to move the cart. This conversation was repeated twice. Then at the end, it was a shameful experience. There was no place to clean our clubs, let alone someone to clean them post round. We weren't even offered a ride back to our cars afterwards. Just watched the staff ignore us completely. Shame because the course was overall in decent condition. Just wouldn't recommend playing here if you like a smooth experience. If it wasn't for the $44 rate, I'd have made a bigger fuss on site. But for a course of this caliber, well below standards in terms of hospitality.
Tough But Fair
Narrow fairways but many holes allow you to find your ball if you shank it. You'll have to take your medicine though bc you're not going to have an unobstructed view of the hole. Course conditions were excellent and the greens were in great shape. Highly Recommend!
Beautiful course tucked inside a resort. Course was tough. Bring your A-game! Make sure you are hitting the ball straight because it could get very frustrating, fast. Very enjoyable course either way.
