Brown with too much water all at the same time.

My wife, and I recently moved to
Murrieta, and want to try all the local courses. This one was a fail, and too bad too. The layout is good, but it hasn’t been kept up well at all.

The course needs a huge amount of work, and a better hydration plan. It was brown from being burned, but sopping wet at the same time.

A ball hitting the green simply plugged 2/3 of the way into the ground. No release, difficult to judge the speed of putts because of the amount of water, and hadn’t been rolled either so they were lumpy.

All in all I was displeased with the quality of the course, and probably won’t return. However, the price was pretty low, and a novice golfer probably wouldn’t notice some of the issues.

Worst course I’ve ever played

I’ve been golfing for 35 years now, and this course is without a doubt the worse course I’ve ever played. They should have paid me to play it. The layout is horrible. The tee boxes are an absolute disgrace and the greens are so over watered that my ball plugged on every approach shot onto the green. Live and learn I guess..

Beautiful weather and nice cool breeze

Coming from the Palm Springs area this is a great change of pace as far as the weather is concerned. We loved the layout and the woodsy atmosphere and the overall friendliness of the staff was excellent. The greens were beautiful but soaking wet. It felt like walking on a wet sponge. My socks were soaking wet. We would love to play this course again but I will bring a different pair of cleats.

The Old Colony

The staff member/starter/check in guy was terrific and friendly. The course could use some work thought. But overall we all have a wonderful experience.

Poor Management

Booked a t time and showed up to chaos. No system to check people in other than one guy standing behind a card table with a very long line. Found out they way overbooked and had no carts and no idea when they would have any available. Punted and went down the road to play another course. Very poor run operation.

Course too crowded

It took 2.5 hours to play front nine due to overcrowding of the course. Walking players were allowed in between scheduled tee times with players with cart.
