A surprise find

Each time through the Desert we try to find some new courses for the non-scratch duffers like us. My wife and I are summer-only golfers and we're just finding our legs these first rounds. Tried this layout and we were very pleasantly surprised. The weather was expected to be hot, but it stayed reasonable through much of the round. Made it around in under three hours. The course is very forgiving for our game. The few we ran into were gracious and friendly. We'll be back.

This course was in great shape. Even with being freshly punched it played well and greens were great! We can’t wait to play it again.

San Gorgonio summer surprise

While busy and a bit slow the course was in great shape, especially for June. We enjoyed the round and found this course to be challenging but not as much as Santa Rosa. Forgiving fairways and beautiful scenery.

San Gorgonio

Rode the Blacks (6669/71.9/128) as a single in slightly less than 3H mid day using Under Par's replay feature. The weather was clear, breezy and in the high 90's.

The tees were lush and well maintained.

The fairways are lush and firm, nice to play from.

The rough is lush and thick even though it is mostly mowed down low.

The sand traps had thick, good quality sand and were well maintained.

The large Bermuda greens are firm and putted medium speed.

Solid course. Main negatives are that they do not have a 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. No GPS on the basic carts. The customer service was good from everyone encountered. No drink cart today. Reasonably priced restaurant onsite that is usually very busy. Recommended.

San Gorgonio

Rode the Blacks (6669/71.9/128) as a single in slightly less than 3H twilight using Forelinx. The weather was partly cloudy, fairly calm and in the high 80's.

The course has transitioned back to Bermuda. Lush and emerald green has been replaced by some brown spots and it plays firm. Playing conditions still good, but not very good to excellent like in the winter here.

The tees were lush and well maintained.

The fairways are lush and played firm. Nice to play from.

The rough is lush and thick even though not overly high.

The sand traps had thick, good quality sand and were well maintained.

The large Bermuda greens putted medium speed and are firm. Bumpier with the Bermuda back than I was accustomed to here when over seeded.

The customer service was good from everyone encountered, right out on the first tee. No drink cart today. Reasonably priced restaurant onsite that is usually very busy. Solid course. Main negatives are that they do not have a 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. No GPS on the basic carts. Recommended.

San Gorgonio

Rode the Blacks (6669/71.9/128) as a 2some in 3H twilight using Forelinx. The weather was really windy, partly cloudy and in the 80's.

Been awhile since I have played in wind like this. It was down to a semi manageable 20+ mph on the back. However, I was hitting 4-5 extra clubs on the front playing into the wind, and was coming up laughably short. Averaging over 300 yard drives downwind, not much over 200 yard drives into the wind. I would guess the gusts were in the 40 mph range, everything from my hat to my head covers went flying down the fairway multiple times.

The course is still in nice condition, but is drying out with the hotter, windier weather. Course conditions were a notch below what I experience last weekend here.

The tees were lush and well maintained.

The fairways are lush and played firm. Nice to play from.

The rough is very lush and thick but not overly high. Just deep enough for the ball to often sit down.

The sand traps had thick, good quality sand. However, some people in front of me must have thought the rakes were for someone else to use.

The large greens putted nice, medium fast speed and are firm. #18 has one of the deepest greens I have ever played or even seen. Hi-lite of my round was 2 putting from the very front up the tier to the very back. I paced it off at 140'.

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. No GPS on the basic carts. The customer service was very good from everyone encountered. No drink cart today. Reasonably priced restaurant onsite that is usually very busy. Definitely recommended.

Nice course with some challenging par 4s. Fair bit of water. Unfortunately it was over 100 degrees that day. More drinking water places needed on the course

Booked this tee time through GolfNow after reading some of the reviews posted by others. The course was in excellent shape, fairways and greens both firm and fast. Nice layout, picturesque at times and friendly to all playing levels. My husband and I are both single digit handicappers and it was nice to see a length that fit all levels of play. We’d definitely play it again

San Gorgonio

Rode the Blacks (6669/71.9/128) with John, Jim and Peggy in 4H early morning using UP. The weather was clear, calm and in the low 80's when we finished just before noon.

Generous landing areas and a reasonable difficulty factor would make this course a good choice for players of all skill levels. Some forced carries and water comes into play on many holes, but not for the more forward tees. Would be a difficult course to walk, many tees are a long way from the last green. No GPS on the basic carts.

The tees were lush and very well maintained.

The fairways are lush and were being slice cut today, which affected their playability short-term.

The rough is super lush and punitive. Thick and deep enough to make the ball sit down.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with thick, good quality sand.

The large greens putted nice, medium speed and are firm.

The customer service was excellent from everyone encountered. No drink cart today. Reasonably priced restaurant onsite that was super busy. 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. Definitely recommended.

San Gorgonio

Rode the Blacks (6669/71.9/128) with John, Donna and their adult grandscon Nate in 4.5H twilight using UP. The weather was clear, breezy and in the low 70's when we finished around 5pm.

The course is in super condition. Billy Casper designed Par 35-37=72 layout with five par 5's and five par 3's. The front is stacked with par 3's, 4 of your first 8 holes are par 3's. The back 9 averages almost 420 per hole from the Blacks, it plays long.

The tees were lush and well maintained. The Black tees had so few divots they almost looked like artificial turf.

The fairways are lush and very nice to play from.

The rough is super lush and punitive. Thick and just deep enough to make the ball sit down.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with good quality sand. They are thick enough to produce several "fried eggs" in our group.

The large greens putted nice, medium fast speed and firm.

Generous landing areas and the difficulty factor would make it a good choice for players of all skill levels. Some forced carries and water comes into play on many holes. Would be a difficult course to walk, many tees are a long way from the last green. No GPS on the basic carts. The customer service was good from everyone encountered. No drink cart today. Had lunch between rounds, good selection and reasonably priced restaurant. 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. Definitely recommended.
