3 1/2 Hour Round on a Weekend!

The pace of play along with player skills in front and behind kept the round to under 4 hours. It was an awesome day with allot of pars and birdie due to lack the usual waiting around behind slow players.

Fix your carts CASTA

First of all: If your in a hurry, please go elsewhere. For one, I'm never in a hurry, golf is a game of precision not speed. Second, I do not drive 300 yards, if you do, please go elsewhere, its no fun having a ball drop at your feet without warning. Now! Casta unfortunately currently has 14 carts out of service due to needed repairs and I was told management does not intend to repair or replace. Hmmm... I'm not about to walk 18 holes and if I'm going to be held accountable to a tee time, I'd expect the course to be prepared with a cart. To that point, if the speed golf players are ready they tend to be less patient and VOCAL about getting a cart. Had one such speed junky insist he was next when my group had been waiting 20 minutes, he wasn't happy with that response so he grabbed my cart key and took off to get his own cart from somewhere...or soemone... not sure. That was cute! Fortunately the Course Ambassador had a spare key and off we went. Unfortunate for us speedy was behind us and responsible for said plunk at my feet mentioned earlier. I will likely return to Casta, course is perfect for my pace and experience level, but lately things have slowed from my average. 3-31/2 hrs. to almost 5. Again, I'm not a speed junky so don't care, but slow pace does turn some normal folks into a-holes. Again, if your a golf God or speed junky please go elsewhere, Orange County has about 200 golf courses

Don’t Play Here

3 hours for 9 holes on a course that is 3,600 yards for 18 holes. At one point was backed up 4 groups on a par 3, course Marshall did nothing to move pace, caught him sitting behind a fence playing on his phone. Left after hole nine and asked for a 9 hole voucher cause it was ridiculous, guy told me it was above his pay grade...would give it zero stars if I could.

Short

Extremely short course, more of a par 3 course. Spend the extra money and play a real course with par 4/5.

Over Booked

They had a tournament and over booked. They are allowing kids on the course that have never played golf. Totally going down hill.

Pace of play killed the day

Yes, you get what you pay for. Not complaining, just creating awareness for other golfers and hopefully management reads this:
Had we had known a junior event locked up the course for the afternoon, we probably wouldnt have played. We arrive 10 minutes early for our 5:00pm tee time and had to wait 20 minutes for one golf cart oand become available, due to the kids event. Their marshals and parents had many extra carts. Golfers were sitting in the parking lot in their carts just talking, but didn’t turn in their carts. Some groups on the course had 3 to 4 carts. There was no one monitoring or helping with the cart situation.
Restaurant and bar were shut down at 4:50pm with at least 150-250 people on the property. And don’t expect this course to have a bev cart.
By the 3rd hole (and on) there were an average of 4 groups on each hole. No marshals. Barely got 9 holes in within 3 hours.
Otherwise, conditions were decent due to recent rains. Greens rolled very well. Conditions were worth the discounted afternoon rate.

Not again.

Fowho the price I thought it would be good. Wrong!
Pro-shop service less than wonderful.
Pace of play real bad. Foursome ahead had a player who needed to go to practice range. Kept hitting mulligans every hole seemingly without asking anyone.. Never hit a fairway. I was sorry for the two players who had the bad luck of joining his twosome.
I blame his playing partner for bringing this 100 handicapper to a golf course. Even this one.
