Nice layout in Good Shape

Thisxis a challenging course requiring accuracy off the tee and shots into the greens. All the holes are unique and the greens are nasty fast and tricky. The overall condition was good except for bare spots in the fairways The driving range and practice putting greens were good

Back again after many years

Overall the course was in nice shape compared to my last visit quite a few years ago. The greens are really challenging with some severe severe slopes and contours. Based on the current pricing in the area, the course is one of the best values among the more challenging layouts.

Okay course

decided to book after reading reviews and seeing pictures and drive 1.5 hours. Course needs some work for the price. tee boxes were fine, the fairways were worse than a course around my area that I usually pay 40-50 dollars for. greens were ridiculously fast. staff was awesome but the course fairways were the only thing that makes this a 3 star review. Pace of play was fine.

Poor conditions

Every fairway was in bad shape, greens were a mess, tons of ball marks and someone apparently did not know how to pick up their feet while they walked. Spike marks were everywhere. Waiting 5 minutes on every tee box. Staff was great and tried to help. Definitely not worth $85.00.

Looking Good

I’ve played this course several times over the years. It has never bee in better condition. The greens are immaculate. They are very fast. The fairways are in good condition. The sand traps are ok. The facility has a nice restaurant or you can grab a bite at the snack shack. I plan to play there more frequently. It is a good value

Good course overall

The course all in all is in okay shape. They do have some fairways that they are repairing and i'm sure that this will make this course more enjoyable. I liked the layout and would definitely play this course again.

Slick Greens

It is impossible to rate off course amenities during these COVID times. Course was decent. Greens were in good shape but very fast almost to unfair. On a few holes, putts that came up 12 to 18 inches short ended up trickling back 25 feet leaving a longer putt than the initial attempt. That really was my only issue.

Needs work and course marshals

The fairways are very inconsistent in terms of the type of grass and are at times bone dry and then mushy and wet, multiple areas are under repair. The greens are not too bad but inconsistent on their speed. At times the pace of play was painfully slow, almost a five hour round; having a course Marshall to “encourage” groups to speed up play would be helpful.

Green is more than excellent

The fairway and rough were not the perfect, but I was OK to me. The condition of the Green was excellent. I think it was the best in my all rounds in 2020. It was very difficult to put especially downhill putting. However, I really enjoy putting on such Green like PGA tournaments.

Pala Mesa ate my lunch

Quite a number of 'ground under repair' spots all over, and some tee boxes need some rework. Fairways in pretty good shape, but the fast greens will kill you (home course green not nearly as fast). I enjoyed the day and will return a rematch.
