First Time Playing

Come back strong!

Played here for a good friends bachelor party and had an awesome time. They were the only course in the area who would allow 7 of us to play in one group (for the record we had no pace of play problems). Memorable layout, maybe the best 18th hole I've played as far as elevation change is concerned. Really hoping this place rebounds after it's renovation period and stays accessible to the public. It's a Pete Dye gem!

Bad Shape and Abandoned Feeling

The greens are cracked in areas and the condition of the course itself was not good at all. No help from the clubhouse regarding tee times, who's up next, etc. I will not return to this course...................................................................

Lost in Time

I still love this place. Used to play the Shadow Course, one of my all time favorites, but the Sky Course is not bad. There were only a few other golfers on the course, which I will never understand. I live across the street from Angeles National, and I played Los Canyons for 1/3 the cost, including gas.

Dye/Couples gone to seed

This is a tough golf course and often windy due to location in Simi Valley. The lack of water makes for tight and inconsistent lies and makes a tough course downright discouraging for the decent but not great golfer. One hole on front 9 I've hit nearly my best drive and just can't get it across the ravine due to wind and distance and I'm hitting it 200 plus off the tee from silver tees of 6200 yards. Maybe I'll play here when I'm playing my best golf and see if I can break 100. I'm about a 16 hdcp, 61 yrs and this place is just no fun. I appreciate a good test, but this is mean golf.

Rough course conditions...

Played the Golds (6740/75.6/143) as a single in less than 3H on a GN Hot Deal for less than $30. Fairly windy, partly cloudy and in the 70's. Having seen this place for 36 holes this week, the bones are still there. The Dye-Couples design is excellent. Great test of golf, with penalty strokes just waiting to bite you if barely offline. Hilly, long, undulating greens, usually windy in the canyons... one of the tougher courses I have ever played when the wind kicks up even a little. HOWEVER, it's like a movie star who has not aged gracefully. And they seem to be doing little to correct the slide. Random observations: 1-No Sand bottles on the carts to fix divots. In fact, I saw nothing provided anywhere on the course to fix a divot. 2-Probably 50 mounds combined on different tees of burrowing animal holes up to 9" tall. 3-Weeds consistently in the 6" range on numerous tee boxes. 4-Numerous Black tees they have just let go, not mowed in months. The tees were poor overall, the worst of any course I have played in the last 6 months. Many were unlevel. Adequate coverage of a mixture of grasses & weeds. The tees definitely have not been cut recently. The fairways and rough both had adequate coverage but are more thin than lush. The fairways are weird. Overall they are large thin hardpan areas that are below average to play off of that are definitely a grass mixture at a height you would think were recently mowed... yet everywhere are 6" tall weeds popping up? There is very little maintenance being done on the traps. Most of the green side traps had decent sand but they were not well maintained. Many were crusty or had large patches of grass growing in them. Most of the fairway traps they have basically just let them go. The worst traps of any course I have played in at least a year, probably longer. The greens do not look good, but actually putt okay? Much better than you would expect after a visual inspection. They putted medium speed and were fairly smooth. Firm but held well struck irons wells. Some have clover, numerous ones have black spots and a few have some bare areas around the edges. The customer service from everyone encountered was good. $25 including a cart is about the MAXIMUM this course is worth to play in it's current condition. Excellent layout even if the conditions are thoroughly mediocre.

Sky

Played the Golds (6740/75.6/143) as a single in 2H, 45M. Teed off @ 1:50pm on a Golfnow Hot Deal. Partly cloudy, around 80 and fairly windy. The tees were poor. Many were unlevel, numerous ones had piles of dirt from burrowing animals and weeds in the 3" to 6" range. Adequate coverage of a mixture of grasses & weeds. The tees in actual use have definitely not been cut recently and numerous Black tees they have not mowed in months. The fairways and rough both had adequate coverage, much more thin than lush. Both had weeds grown up, neither had been mowed recently. Most of the green side traps had okay sand but they were not well maintained. Many were crusty. Calling most of the fairway traps hardpan is being generous, they have basically let them go. The greens do not look good. Some have clover, numerous ones have black spots and a few have some bare areas around the edges. However, they play much better than they look. They putted medium speed and were fairly smooth. Firm but held well struck irons wells. Have been meaning to play here again, was hoping the rains had done more good. While far from lush, the conditions of the grass are better than when I last played here 6 months ago. However, the course conditions are actually worse to play because of the lack of maintenance. The customer service from everyone encountered was good. I would certainly NOT pay close to rack rate for this course, even though it is the closest course to my house. However, if you can get a deal it is worth it. Excellent layout even if the conditions are thoroughly mediocre.

Sad very sad

The course is dead the green were the worst i have ever played. Some of the green had water trails going through them. Some of the greens had mud spots. Tee box with weeds and holes in them. I saw a deal at $ 55.00 so I was thinking that was a little low. So I called and ask how is the course and I was told it was in good shape. if they think that this was in good shape they must be used to playing in the middle of the street. $55.00 maybe $20.00
