What a treat to play on closing day!

I had been forewarned about the condition of the fairways, but my time was limited and I was looking to play 18 prior to 11:00am. Little did I know I would have this entire course to myself on closing day! The fairways were brown, but the dormant kikuyugrass played firm & fast and still offered good lies. But the greens were simply magnificent! What a great layout this must have been back in the day, and it was both an honor and a privilege to be among the last to play there.

Had I known...

This course is under reconstruction. All fairway and tee boxes do not have grass making play near impossible. Greens are also under kept and inconsistent. I thought I was getting a good deal and drove an hour to find the course in the condition it was in. I'm sure once it's reconstructed it will be great.

This is a really hard course!

This is a really hard course with forced carries and really tight fairways. It was complicated by the course conditions. There was no grass in the rough areas, and even some of the fairways had no grass. They are discounting the price because of the conditions, and it's still not worth the price. There is no restaurant, only a snack shack. The only good point is the greens are in good shapes.

Last Time at Malibu

I have played Malibu Golf Club many times in the past. The fairways were TOTALLY Brown and basically Unplayable. The greens were decent. The overall clubhouse was fair. My understanding is that they are getting ready to put a bunch of money into the clubhouse. They definitely need it on the course. I would NOT go back out there even if it were free. The golf course is NOT being well maintained AT ALL..Not sure how others would even want to play this course..

Terrible conditions, don't waste your money

They haven't watered this in months. Hard pan dirt everywhere. Only the greens are nice. Don't go.

Challenging Course but Completely Dried Out

Malibu GC is getting crushed by the CA drought which is unfortunate because it has a lot of promise. They are keeping the greens green but the rest of the course is brown (not an exaggeration). A lot of elevation changes and it's definitely a challenge to get around without any course knowledge for the first time player but each cart comes loaded with a booklet with hole lay-outs and guidance to help you out. If we get some rain, I'll definitely come back to give it another shot. In the meantime, they should consider giving the tee boxes as much love as the greens. Hitting driver/woods off sand/dirt/small rocks makes you cringe.

The course just destroyed.

I don't understand how and who decided to destroy one of the most beautiful golf courses in the area. Seems to me they don't have money to pay their water bill. With all this drought troubles the most of the courses manage to keep their fairways green, but Malibu golf course turned the fairways into some kind of cracked desert like dirt. Don't go there even for $25, nor for $10. Terrible and depressing

Grass is all brown

I understand they are redoing this course from scratch that will take two years to complete. For that reason they have totally let it go. Fairways are brown. They are still charging $60 a round. We complained and they gave us 1/2 our money back.
