I’ve played here maybe a half dozen times in the past twenty years and as usual the golf course didn’t disappoint. The layout is great, a really nice mix of golf.with generous fairways and interesting green complexes. Course conditions, like the weather were near flawless, smooth quick greens and perfect lies in the fairways. I wish I could have stayed another day!

This course hasn’t lost its charm after 94 years. Love the layout, the staff, the surroundings and the challenge. It’s always in good shape and I never tire of bringing new friends to experience the tranquility and old school charm this course has to offer.

Course is not long, but will challenge even the best players. Greens are fast with subtle, hard to read breaks. Lots of elevation changes challenge club selection. Fairways are generous but big misses are severely penalized. Part 3s are challenging with many over 200 yards. If you are a fan of classic designs and want a challenge, this is a course to play.

This classic course is not long but, it requires proper placement off the tee and good approach shots. The greens are in great shape but, have many subtle breaks. The staff is always excellent. They go out of their way to serve and make sure your experience is a good one.

I got a hot deal that was $100 off the normal price! This course was super well kept and I finished the round in just 3 hours! They give you the VIP treatment with a valet and also provide fresh fruit from nearby orchards while on the course! I will defygo back to play here the next time I’m in the area.

Usually the course is tougher cause the greens can run faster. Up to a 12 stimp. Beautiful location with the mountains surrounding. Very friendly staff. Carts have GPS. Range is pretty good. all the balls you want to hit.Can get very hot at times. Bring sunscreen. There is poison oak if you wander. . Lots of wildlife all over
