Cart path only
I really don’t understand why it was cart path, there was only one hole with water. The rest of the course was great. Not a single shot that I hit was wet. When I said that to the guy at clerk, he said that the decision was made by the best groundskeeper of the valley and he ran away. What a disgusting way to treat a customer. I said that the groundskeeper were the ones who were buying 100 of rolls of bathroom tissue.
Great golf course
Nice golf course. Good variety of holes, challenging greens.
Thoroughly enjoyed our round. Course is so lush and well maintained not a bad lie anywhere. The white sand bunkers were some of the best I’ve ever seen. As others have mentioned greens were a little ugly in spots but rolled true. I highly recommend this course and for the price $95 Golfnow a steal for prime season in the desert.
A very challenging course, that will test even the most seasoned golfer... with numerous par 3s on the front ,changes to mostly par 4s on the back, with lots of water challenges throughout! Supper in the Boulevards restaurant was very good afterward as well!
Course layout is ok. Excellent white sand trap give good sight lines.
Greens are tough with lots of undulation. Make sure you use practice putting green as it represents what you see.
Fairways are shot and run fast. Many greens lack a good root system so are patchy but they do roll ok. They hold a shot and many were soft. We played Gold Tees at 6200 and 123 slope. Front 9 need to score as is under 2800 yards and par 35- back is 3500 + and par 37. Enjoyable but greens need work. Fairway and rough very good.
The Real Deal
Surprisingly quiet and easy to play (3.75 hrs.) considering how many homes (5000) surround these two challenging but beautiful courses. Lots of water features, plenty of white sand bunkers, elevated and interesting greens, generous but undulating fairways, doglegs - it’s all here to test any golfer. Will be back soon to check out the sister course Santa Rosa.
Very playable off the tee. Easy driving course. just enough challenge coming into the greens to make it interesting. Four and half stars
Nice course, good layout, big difference (700 yards), between front and back. We didn’t see any staff except one person at the end of our round to wash our clubs and ask for tip, very ordinary.
Great course... greens not up to par
Love this course.... both the San Gorgonio and Santa Rosa courses are always in such great shape. Unfortunately this course is not up to standards based on the greens. I gave the overall rating 4 stars but the greens are only 3 star. They have not come out of overseeding well and are very sparse. The greens crew have done a good job of making them roll true, but they are not full and lush like has been the standard in the past. Hopefully they will improve. I'll be back.
Rode the Blacks (6669/71.9/128) with Mneilson and his wife Doris in 3.5H early morning using Underpar. The weather was clear, calm and was around 45 when we teed off and was close to 60 when we finished.
The course came out of over seeding in EXCELLENT condition.
The over seeded tees were lush and very nicely maintained.
The over seeded fairways are lush and nice to play from.
The over seeded rough is mostly lush and thick but not overly high.
The sand traps were well maintained with thick, excellent quality white marble sand.
The large over seeded greens were very nice. They are smooth, firm and putted medium fast with few ball marks.
No GPS or ports for electronics on the basic carts. The customer service was excellent from everyone encountered, especially Jose with the carts. Drink cart around several times. A negative is that San Gorgonio does not have a driving range. You have to go 1/2 mile down the street where the sister Santa Rosa course has an all grass driving range. Definitely recommended.
Great but. ....
The course was reseeded a week and a half ago. The greens were really slow but nice layout
Fairways were beautiful!! Great condition!
The course was ready to be reseeded so everything was brown and dead. Not the best playing conditions.
Rode the Blacks (6669/71.9/128) using Forelinx right before it is closing for over seeding. Matched up with 3 nice Canadians, we played in 4H, 20M. The weather was nice, sunny, calm and in the 90's.
The Bermuda tees are brown and mowed low.
The Bermuda fairways are mostly brown but still nice to play from.
The Bermuda rough is mostly brown and mowed low.
The sand traps have excellent quality white sand and were well maintained.
The large Bermuda greens putted medium fast speed and are very firm.
The customer service was good as usual here. No drink cart today but they have adequate water stations on the course. No GPS on the basic carts or ports for electronics. No driving range, you have to go 1/2 mile down the street where the sister Santa Rosa course has a nice, all grass driving range. Recommended after fall over seeding is completed.
We booked this course expecting it to be in excellent condition. Upon arriving we saw that the course was scalped, brown/dry grass everywhere. The golf course should have made people aware on the website that these were the conditions as there is no way we would have booked. The course stated we didn’t have to play, (in a rather abrupt manner,) however since we had driven 45 minutes to get there and didn’t have another option to golf, we decided to give it a try. The fairways were extremely hard and after 9 holes we decided to quit. Very disappointing! Not coming back to Mountain Vista or golf now as we feel this was a money grab.
First, if you were the group who teed off around noon and quit after 9 holes, ALL the groups behind you are glad you quit after 9 holes. Because if you were that group, perhaps taking pictures like you posted from hole #7 are why the front nine took us 2H, 35M to finish? Why we were waiting nearly every shot, and not just a little wait either. After the noon group left after nine, we played the back nine in 1H, 45M? 50M quicker to play a back nine that is longer and considerably more difficult than the front? Second, go onto Greenskeeper dot org and check on golf course conditions before you book. Best site I know to accurately get that information.
Wide Open Fairways, challenging greens
Course still recovering from the summer so some bare spots in fairways and around the greens. New, white, soft sand in the traps, beautiful to look at, need a shovel to get out of.
Greens were hard and running fast, but putting true.
Overall a good value and a decent design.
Biggest complaint is there is no clubhouse or facility at the turn.
