Been playing "Casta" since they opened in the early 70's
Yes Date built 1970. Having grown up in Mission Viejo and being a junior golfer you had to play "Casta." In junior high, our moms would take us over after school and we would play it at least once a week, normally finishing 18 in the dark. Great times and the course was always in good shape back then and fun to play, executive and yes, #16 was a par 4. I still dont understand how a course that was there "BEFORE" the condos and houses were built along the edges could be sued to have #16 changed to a par 3. Ruined a fun hole. Anyways, fast forward to prior the City of MV purchasing it. Played it once in awhile, the course wasnt what it once was in my book but since the City purchased it, man it's gotten to be like the old times. Played today, good pace, and the greens were the best I've seen them. Period. Green Green! They held, were very smooth and fast. The rest of the course was typical "can kill ya" grass, some dry patches but over all better than most of the lower end public courses in South Orange County. Granted this is an exec course, its a really good place to work on your iron play and definitely your putting. Also like what they've done with the check in area, new carts and the improvements to the patio. Also needed the name change to Oso Creek Golf Course. My only real complaint and this has existed since day one, something needs to be done about #9 the par 4 and the swale with the drain ditch. Longer hitters can hit driver up to the face of hill below the green, but everyone else the tee shot is very difficult to keep it from flying or rolling into the ditch which is always full of water and we were wondering how many balls are lost there daily and end up in the pool below the ditch. Need to put an underground culvert in there and flatten that hole out. Other than that, the fun is back at Casta
Fun short course
Had a good time playing. The greens are the highlight. They're in great shape and they were fast and challenging. This course is a no brainier, go out and play some cheap golf!
Nice improvements to the course. Great atmosphere when you walk it. Friendly staff. Greens were in very good shape; very nice executive course now. Only drawback is 4.5 hours to play a part 60 course.
Nice executive layout
It is obvious they are putting money and attention into this executive course. The greens were great. Still some patchy hard pan in areas on the fairways. A lot of the thick rough around the drainage ditches has been cleaned out
We teed off at 6:00 am and we’ were finished at 8:00 am. Lots of work being done to improve the course. Recently purchased by the city of mission Viejo. New carts, Totally cleaned up clubhouse, but still closed due to COVID.
Great little course.
First time playing this course. Forgot to check total
Par on the course. Thought it was Par72, no par 5’s, mostly par 3’s and a handful of 4’s. Course was well maintained. Greens were very nice shape. Overall great place to practice your short game. Will play it again.
New Name..Same great value
Course is really shaping up. Great for walking, course conditions improving monthly. Pace of play under control. friendly people and staff. A great opportunity to walk a course with enough challenge to improve your game.
Greens are recently aerated.
Fairways are okay. Too much water on some. The tee boxes needs more grass. Love pace of play or may be the group in front of us gave up on putting altogether. I would come back in a few months.
