Pretty Good Track

Overall fun, somewhat challenging track in pretty decent track. Greens on good shape. Have 2 knocks against course.
1) Unfortunately clientele there feel it's beneath them to fix divots on fairways. Can't remember last time ball has wound up in as many unfilled divots as today.
2) Normally not a good value. Played today since we had a voucher for $69/player. Would not pay much more to play this track.

Bummer

Great layout. Front 9 terrible shape with exception of greens which were great. Back 9 in good shape. Very slow play , not sure what Marshall was doing. We saw him several times. Course would be tough for high handicap players. Both our carts died. Driving range only had a couple of mats and about half the balls were in decent shape

Black and Gold

Great course. Greens are some of the toughest I have played. I would like to see a little more watering on the fairways. They are rock hard and the club on occasion cannot get a good devit

:Great course with a beautiful scenic layout!

This is a must play if you are in the Anaheim area. Make sure you bring your A game and swallow a little pride and play the white tees. Tee to greens can be challenging, but once you get to the greens you work has just started. There are not many flat spots on any of the 18 greens, but all are in fabulous shape running pretty quick. Give it a try.

Staff Friendliness

If I could give 10 stars to the staff I would. Best experience I’ve ever received. I’m not the type of person to write reviews but they deserve this one. Thank you guys!

Fast greens super slow pace

It was unfortunate that our pace was so slowed down and there were a handful of groups, ours was the last, squeezed in between an outing that went off shotgun. We were only able to finish 14 holes which took 4.5 hours at which point it was becoming too dark to see even had we wanted to continue waiting 5-10 minutes on every tee box. That was with one group quitting directly in front of us after 9. Not to mention the “lead” group for the tournament continuously coming up on us while we waited for the group in front of us to clear, blasting music and generally being loud and distracting while we hit tee shots. They really had no respect for any form of politeness towards our experience. Saw someone from the course ride through once but not stop to speak to anyone about anything. Zero management of the pace of play and more than half of the tee boxes we would have two groups waiting to tee off for at least a 3-5 minutes.

Other than that, the course conditions were fine and the greens were super slick and had a few pin positions which were absolutely unfair due to the speed. A number of them you would roll the ball up to the cup and it would stop just past and then roll 3-5 feet or in some cases more back towards you.

I really wanted to enjoy the course after reading the other reviews, however this was one of my least enjoyable rounds in recent memory.

Great First Impression.

From the moment I arrived. Excellent welcoming and professionalism shown by the starter and cart boys. Paired at the first tee with 3 random guys who were very cool dudes.
The course itself is not for beginners. I played the Blue Tees and they were a fair test. Skinny fairways and good decision making is vital. You miss the fairway or green surrounds and the deep Kikuya grass will eat you up. If you can’t drive relatively straight prepare to have a frustrating time. Otherwise the fairways and greens are all immaculate. Cart girl was fantastic and came around twice on the back.
I lost a club cover and one of the staff even went out of his way to ask other players behind me and even check the cart Bay for it. Very kind gesture. I don’t write reviews very often but definitely play Black Gold if you are in the area.
Great for the price and the best kept course I’ve played in the Brea area and surrounds.
