Fast Fairways

This is the second time I have played this course and I have to say this course will reward you for hitting the fairways, the ball seems to just keep rolling about 20 yards further than I am used to which made for my lowest score of the year. Even when you hit into the rough which I did plenty, it was not to difficult to get out of trouble. The greens are very challenging especially on long putts with elevation and slope variations. The only thing I would recommend the course improve are to add a little more sand to the bunkers they are a bit firm for high handicappers like myself. I played midweek around noon and was done in 4 hours so things were moving quite nicely. I got the discount rate from Golf Now so it is a littler cheaper than usual.

Overpriced in a misleading way

First off, golfnow had the price at $64.50 with cart. They charged us $79.50 (15 was for a cart). Bad start.

The course was fine. It's an easy, fairly boring layout. Greens are very undulating which was fun. Fairways were fine but the rough was dried out - looks like they hadn't watered it in days.

The surprise cart fee kind of put an early damper on the day but we still had fun.

Best course in Long Beach

Fairways and greens were in great shape. Staff and a couple hick-ups at check in, but nothing major. There was a slow group behind us, but our 4-some got done in 4 hours so no biggie.

Nice and open

Fairways were nice and open and had great bounce and roll to them. My only issue with the course and there were many areas that needed to be watered.

Course is very dry right now.

In many places the fairways were bone dry and rock hard, also not much sand in greenside bunkers. Marhsalls would have been useful to keep pace of play moving, but none to be seen throughout the entire day,

Customer service

Golfnow is saying you get a cart the guy “John” real old mad dog type not giving an inch. You will pay extra upon arrival. They are pretty much slumming I’d say during covid, the course gets played so much that they could care less about you and the money you bring to the course. Drinks and food are non existent unless you wanna hold up the whole course on the turn and course is an bad shape. You would think fixing divots is illegal here.

GolfNow App Needs Update

We have played this course many times. I’ve used different apps to book tee times and everything was fine. I booked today through GolfNow for this round and it said our tee time included a cart. I get to the course to check in and we had to pay extra for the cart! So I’m upset we were led to believe one thing and told another! Not happy!! I’m going to avoid Skylinks in the future! So unhappy!!

Skyrinks

Place has taking a beating since the Rona and American golf is slum lording. The carts sometimes are clean and sometimes the GPS works. No Alert about sanded greens they were not punched just sanded. Would not have played knowing that.

Guys I played with were cool So 5 stars

No one fixes divots

Just OK.

Course was in fair shape. Some areas were over watered and played soft, other areas were very dry and bounced really hard, so it was difficult to judge how to hit off it and to see what would happen to the ball when it landed. Same with the greens. Some were way quicker than the others as they were cut more than others. No real consistency. Just made for a difficult day of golf. The bunkers were the same, some were still quite wet and heavy and others dried out the crusty even through late into the back 9 holes.
It’s a bit pricey for what it is.

Sand Traps are horrible

This course would be great to play if not for the condition of the sand traps. there are multiple traps on most holes that are impossible to get out of because. there is very little sand in them.

Bad conditions right now

Played this maybe 3 weeks ago and it was in pretty good condition. Now it's brown everywhere. Might be some sort of grass disease. Bald spots on the fairway. Wet muddy spots near the greens. Probably won't play this for a few months until others report better conditions.
