Slick Winchester

The word slick would describe this place right now: Greens, slippery slick, awesome! Around greens, not so slick, if you miss a green the ball will be plugged or in a bad lie, messy in fact and needs attention; hydro seed, grass, or just leave it dry so we can putt up the rough slopes. Too wet.

That's the only negative, Sand is fine, tees are a bit wet but ok, fairways a bit wet but ok.

You cannot fake it out here and lay up and expect to save par. You have to go at pins. One of the funner tests of accuracy in the valley, as being below hole is very important on most holes, crucial on 1 and 18 which are easy driving holes but tough greens! Great set up of holes. Wonderful views, great golf course. Hole 10 is something else.

Would be five stars if not so wet, heat is one thing, not having the grass is another. Too pricey for conditions! You cant water dirt and expect it to grow. Hydro seed is the only fix to those problems around the greens, then water it before it dries overnight! Then charge what you want for your product. At the grocery store, Do you buy the wilted goods? Nope. You'd expect a deal, 30%, 50% off.

I see the rates posted for the weeks ahead and the course is at full retail $115 or so when course is worth a $55 premium. That's what Cinnabar, Poppy, Bayonet/Blackhorse charge. Down the street at Darkhorse its $30.

Too much $ charged here, but a remarkable course.

A must play in your golf history!

Amazing place and course. Didn’t like getting bumped by members 20 minutes but it’s in the confirmation that it’s possible, so....

Greens were bumpy maybe should have been rolled again?

5 + hour pace of play so not good for golf but frankly the surroundings are so amazing you are just in awe.

A must play in California!!

Great Experience and Excellent Course!

Played here multiple times but not in the last few years. Perfect day, course and greens were in excellent condition. Well manicured as always,

sand traps were perfect also and pace of play was less than 4 hours, hardly any one on the course. Staff was friendly and helpful. Highly recommend playing it.

A Course Worth Playing

First time playing this course. A little pricey but once in a while I will splurge. All of the employees were very nice. Gentleman in pro shop explained everything to me, where the driving range was, tee boxes who to check in with etc. The course was in excellent shape, greens, fairways, tee boxes and sand traps with real sand. Not many people on the course this day which was great, the round went quick and was enjoyable. Like any course it would be nice to have some course knowledge, so now I have some. Will play this course again as it is a very nice course with some nice scenery and wildlife.

This course has great features.

We all like the course, greens are little tricky. Course in great shape some holes has nice view. Staffs are very nice and helpful, We like to play again, price wise little expensive. The Golf Now sent me 25% off the green fee coupon, that help to knock down some green fee we enjoyed.
