Marshaling

Could haves used a Marshall on the course. There were two groups in front that had three holes open in front of them and would not pick up pace of play to keep things moving. Waited at least 3-8 minutes on every shot.

Sunday afternoon with guys

we started off with only 3 guys as 2 others were bit late. Pace of play was very good and overall condition was better than previous outing. We might have been bit slow once 2 others joined, but we were fairly timely in moving along. Did not finish last 2 holes, due to slowness of group ahead of us. Overall very satisfied.

Unknown group showed during round

Prevented from finishing ground due to slowness and unknown group cut in front during round. Basically, no one to alert issue. Very offended as member of our group came from out of town and felt very embarrassed.

Slow and poor greens

This is a well worn course. The greens are extremely slow. The rough is short, but sadly not short enough. Every time a player hits a ball in the medium rough you immediately lose sight of the ball. You literally have to stand over the ball to see it. This may be the reason for the extremely slow pace of play.

Nice Course but Slow Play

I have played this course a couple of times over the past month. The course is in great condition for the dead of summer. The main drawback is slow play caused by too many groups of five. I don’t know why the Los Angeles area courses allow this but it is really ruining the game.

I play here almost every the pace of play varies from good to horrible :-p. Can't control how some people play :-) I enjoy the course..its very "forgiving" for my druves that dont always go straight :-) Today the rough was a little deeper then usual.. could use a little trimming..other then with my club :-p or I could just learn to hit straighter :-) Over all nice course. !

Will not go back

Played this course for the first time. Pace of play was ok and the course itself was good. The issue I have is that I book this on the GolfNow app for 4 players. The 4th player was not able to make it and I let them know at the front desk. They said no problem and they add a single with us. That's all great until I get an email saying that since my 4th did not show up they are charging me for that. I have a problem with that after they said no problem. If that is the way they do all their customer how do they still have people going there.
I WILL NOT GO BACK TO THIS COURSE DUE TO THIS FACT.

Long & Slow

We went off in the middle of a huge tournament. Play was very slow. It was also the afternoon and the greens had seen a ton of foot traffic so nothing rolled true. Overall conditions were pretty good and the staff was very friendly. Not bad for a public course all things considered.

Pace of Play

Never understood people who play in a group of 5 and then want to take forever each shot and slow the pace of the entire course behind them. It’s completely rude and inconsiderate. Groups of 5 should only be allowed on weekdays and at certain times. Courses need to understand that Money can be made daily but time can never be replaced so save some time and play somewhere else until they decide to stop allowing groups of 5 on the weekends and peak hours. Just my opinion...

Nice straightforward course

Nice course for the average golfer. Good grass on fairways and tees. Greens in good conditions - a little bumpy. A little slow, but it's a public course that allows 5 somes. Play sped up in the back nine. We'll be back
