Punched greens

Great golf course that I usually enjoy playing.
Greens were punched 2weeks ago and pro shop guy told me that the greens are at90-95%.

They were 70% at best.

I wouldn’t pay $125 again to play here under current conditions...I wouldn’t even pay half.

As a matter of fact, they should advertise when greens are punched.
I feel cheated.

Stay Away - bad condition, ridiculous cost

I wish I read these reviews before spending $125 to play Black Gold today. They were charging a cheaper rate for the aeration but now that the rate is back to their normal one I figured the course would be ready - and in even better condition. 100% wrong. The greens are still punched, sand everywhere, all putts are bumpy. On top of that, no one fixes their ball marks so that doesn’t help the greens. Most of the tee boxes were horrible. The tees were moved all over - not playing anywhere close to what the card says for each hole’s tees.

It truly is highway robbery that they charge $125 for what I played today. Go to Coyote Hills for $115 instead! Much better layout. Much better condition. And much better pace. Tee times there are spaced 15 mins. Here they are 8 mins.

We waited on every tee box and every fairway. EVERY single hole we played had 3-4 groups on at once. Normally one on the green, one on the fairway, us trying to tee off, and the group behind us waiting for us to hit. On every hole the group behind us was at the tee box as we were teeing off.

As the most expensive public course I’ve seen or played in LA county or Orange county, there is no chance I could ever recommend.

Poor greens

First time playing at this course. Course lay outs are OK but cost is VERY high vs course. At this time putting greens are worse and bumpy. Couldn't able to putt well bc balls are rolling many different directions due to restructuring greens. I don't think its worth of paying $$ this course.

Aerated and Sanded Greens

Decent course. Lots of blind shots and target golf but playable. The aerated greens had about a quarter inch of sand on it so putting was nearly impossible. Maybe that explains the discounted price. I would like to return when the greens are back in shape.

Punched greens had too much sand

The greens had just been punched. But the sand had not been swept off the greens - unbelievably lame. I can live with a discount for punched greens, but putting on sand is simply not golf.

Aerated greens

I've played here a number of times before. Normally I would give this course a 4.5. It's a great layout, well-maintained, and has great views. But when I booked it 5 days before, it did not mention the greens were being aerated. Not only were the greens punched but they were completely filled with sand, making putting impossible and the whole round unenjoyable. We ended up mostly practicing chipping. What's the point of a reservation system if it doesn't tell you something as basic as this?

Good Staff

Like that the course has a starter, and will match up singles with groups to even out play as much as possible.

Excellent Course

Course was in excellent condition. Service was spectacular. My sons car charge was getting weak. He didn't realize it but a signal was sent from the gps to the cart shop and the cart crew delivered him a fully charged cart on the 11th green. Amazing service.
