I was paired with three singles for my round. We all really liked the course. The scenery is especially terrific. I live in the HOA which owns the course and was very pleased to find how much the course had been improved since the HOA bought it on Jan. 1, 2018.

Unlike a couple of recent reviewers, our group thought the greens were in good shape although they were top-coated with sand which made them slower. We all made occasional long putts and thought the greens ran pretty true. There was no sign of the poa annua that was bad last winter.

There is now a food and beverage grill open at the pro shop. The food is good and there is outside seating with water misters going...or you can sit inside in air conditioning. There is now ice, cups and water for free outside the grill. There are brick bathrooms with water fountains at the club house and at two mid-way holes.

Views of the Santa Catalina Mountains are spectacular. Another joy is the wildlife.. You are sure to see many deer which are practically tame.

Personally, I find this course hard to beat.

The only drawback was slightly uneven greens. Fairways and roughs in very nice shape. It's a pretty friendly layout - a few forced carries and intra-fairway hazards to negotiate. Fantastic scenery, very nice clubhouse.

This course has deteriorated since the HOA have taken it over. Most noticeable were the fairways that were devoid of grass. The greens also we’re not in good condition. I wouldn’t drive a long ways to play this course again. And it doesn’t make me want to rent here for the winter again.

I understand that the course was recently sold to the HOA in Saddlebrooke. Course is in terrible shape from the standpoint of deferred maintenance..greens were the worst I have played on in some time. Overrun with poa Ana. Extremely slow and very bumpy. Putts could not hold any true line. Fairways, with a few exceptions, were devoid of grass and in need of water. Bunkers were hard sand and in need of maintenance.

Maybe the new management has not had time to resolve these issues. Until they do, they should advise player of the adverse condition in advance. The green fees were way to high for the condition of the course

Greens are bumpy, crusty and there are clumps of POA throughout! You can’t get a true roll. The fairways and rough are also in bad shape with lots of dead patches covered with sand and paint. This course is a poor value at any price. In fact, I would say they are close to completely losing their greens!

This is a very well run operation, great staff. Course is pretty interesting with really nice fairways and playable rough. Was only in a couple fairway bunkers but they were well maintained and played well. The problem at present is the condition of the greens, they've been invaded by little tufts of crabby looking grass. Because of that I can't recommend it at present.

We played on a cool Sunday when the course was not busy. The starter let my wife and I out by ourselves. The pace of play was excellent. The greens are very rough. Some of the fairways are under repair, but the layout is excellent, and golf is golf. We had a nice day.

Greens need work. Rough and lots of poa. Several fairways have either been painted green or fertilized/weed treated. In any case your ball gets stained green.

Almost all the greens are invaded by patches of thick lumpy grasses which made them uncuttable. Also four of the fairways had lost almost all of the grass and were being seeded. Proshop was just an empty room with a counter at which to check in. Not a very pleasant golfing experience despite a very nice track and outstanding views. Will not go back.
