Shame to be closing

I have played this course many times over the years. The course is in a beautiful setting, the layout is friendly, relatively straight forward but with challenges sprinkled throughout the round from some narrow fairways, to strategically placed traps, to long holes that require good long club striking. While not country club conditions, the course has been consistently well maintained. It is beautiful to play here and it is a shame that the course is closing at the end of the year.

Beautiful course

We're from LA and we always play Rancho Canada/ East Course. It's our home away home course. We love to play here. Unfortunately the course will close at the end of December 2016. We are very sadden by the owners decision to close a wonderful golf course! Would they reconsider if enough people write reviews like this?

Our recent play at Rancho Canada

A beautiful property and know when really taken care of it must have really been pretty. This course is closing in Dec of this year; the side we played will turn into a park and the other 18 a housing development. So it is understandable that they aren't putting any money into the course...what a shame.

A little gem

Despite the near future closing of this course it is in very good condition. The greens were smooth and the fairways green.

This course plays harder than the yardage would indicate. There are several approach shot and tee shots going into or coming out of narrow shoots of trees.

I'll miss this course when it's gone. It is a good test of golf.

Great course with lovely scenery

Wonderful course with good conditions and upkeep. A little confusing of where the greens are when teeing off, but a good challenge course overall. Not a difficult course, but a nice one for even beginners to intermediate players. The scenery is fantastic and a perfect day to play golf.

Pace of play was super, but it was a Monday.

I would definitely play here again.
