The course is not worth the money

Our cart went dead on the fourth hole. Called the pro shop several times.
They kept saying they will send another one out BUT NOOOOO!
We pushed the cart all the way back.
Pace of play was very slow.
Not enough staff at the course.
Greens were very slow and bumpy.

Nice price

I’d rather play at Casta Del Sol then spend $12 at the range! The greens were really nice. The facilities are adequate. No driving range for warmup but otherwise the practice green was nice.

On the course, the par 3’s were great target practice. On par 4’s and around the greens, hitting off of crabgrass was annoying. It was difficult to chip off the green on crabgrass.

Otherwise, everything was in good condition. Pace was slow, but that’s probably due to price and older clientele.

Great Short Course of moly Par 3s

This course has very nice greens and great for practicing your irons and sometimes a couple of drivers. The up and down slopes are fun. We had a great time there.

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.

Always fun

For what you pay, the course is awesome! The greens are much nicer than I expected, and for an executive course, the layout is very fun. Pace of play is always an issue here, but I think it is because it’s a great value. Can’t go wrong with casta in my opinion, but don’t expect a quick round.

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.
