Nice course but pace was extremely slow. It 5 hrs and 20 minutes to complete 18 holes. Just too much time.

Overbooking is not good for the game.

I played in a Monday and got off early Well before my tee off time. Finished in three and a half hours. Solid course layout. Nice greens in good shape even though they were punched a week ago. Lots of maintenance activity at the course which is good. Played from the blues and it was a fair challenge for a low handicapper. I’ll definitely be back. Good value for the money. All thumbs up here. They have a nice double decker driving range. Only complaint was no water on the course.

Great course and great staff, just the groups of 5 were horrible. Took 4 hours to get to 13 where we eventually quit. Greens are in good shape, fairways are thin and browning, otherwise a good track.

I have played this course many times over the years. It is always in good condition. The greens are currently in excellent condition. There are a few fairways on the back 9 that are dry and hard but other than that the rest of the course was also in good condition. We teed off at 7:24am on a Friday and didn’t have to wait on a single hole. Pace of play was excellent. I am not a fan of the back to back par 5s and back to back par 3s on the front but other than hat the course layout is pretty good. The front plays harder than the back in my opinion. Maybe that is their way making you feel better on your way out to keep you coming back.

Had a 940 tee time, Rio Hondo staff had me at 956; and we were told were are running a little slow today...10:15 am, we finally tee off. Waited on every hole after every shot. After 9 holes at 1:30 pm, went to the office and spoke to staff, he didn’t really care. Spoke to manager and offered a free round next time.
