Good times

arrived 35 min before tee time. Pro shop- efficient. 60 range balls between the 2 of us. 5 minute call from the starter overheard from the range. All together, pleasant walk from the time we got out of our car. Greens were aerated earlier from what we saw reaching the 1st green. Greens were as good as could be for being aerated. Tee boxes, fairways excellent. Bunkers need a lil love. All n all, a great course, great day and the 2some that we were paired with were golfers! That wrapped the bow on this party! Thanks

Great course, challenging but fun!

One of the top 3 public golf courses in Southern California. Long forgiving fairways, lush desert scenery, large greens - fast and undulating. Always well maintained with good pace of play. Watch out for sand traps and wind conditions. Overall great value and great fun. Can’t wait to play again.

Another slow round

This course is beautiful, tucked in Moorpark mountains, links style at its finest...unfortunately it’s overbooked and never has a Marshall- count on 5 hours minimum for play...

Challenging, but fun course.

It's somewhat of a links style course on a lot of holes. Probably the toughest greens I've ever putted on.

Major undulation on greens and the course in general. You have to know where to hit it on the greens or else you're better off leaving it short and chipping/putting.

Greens we're still coming off irrigation, can't imagine how fast they are when they are in better shape.

Great value, hard course, but fun.

Challenging and well maintained course

Very well maintained fairways and greens. The greens that are not the traditional flat greens, are really challenging and fast. There are different challenges in each hole, with long pars four and five. Despite the few pars and no birdies in my round, I enjoyed a lot playing for the second time in a month this course. The only observation was the pace, it was very slow, 5 1/2 hours to complte the round. But honestly, I was expecting it because it was completely booked. Will definitely play it again.

Great course, great value

Played the course yesterday for the first time and I was wildly impressed. As a single I played 18 in about 2 hrs 15 min and enjoyed every minute. The layout is is challenging, but fair, with few forced carries. The greens were quick, but not too fast. The Gil Hanse design reminds me a little bit of his Streamsong Black course in Florida. For the cost to play to the course, the value is one of the best anywhere!!
