Tight lies and fast fairways!

Course is in great shape (As always) but with the fairways going dormant for the winter, they roll forever! That would be great, except many of the fairways severely slope towards trouble, and even a well struck shot can end up where you don't want to be. You have to account for this or you'll get very frustrated.

Greens and fairly receptive, but a little on the slow side.

Fun layout, and definitely a challenge.

Great Customer Service

Fantastic service by this golf course. Unbelievably, GolfNow cancelled my tee time, as I was driving to the golf course, roughly 40-50 minutes before my tee time, even though I booked it about a week ahead of time. Even though they had a tournament scheduled, the golf course was able to sneak us off the back nine and matched my golfnow rate. Horrible service by GolfNow, great service by the golf course.

Course conditions are great. This is one of my favorite Inland Empire courses. Challenging and beautiful, and some very unique holes.

Fairways need work

I enjoyed this course I played with a couple from Toronto Canada. We played the combination tees of blue/white. It was an enjoyable round of golf. The greens and bunkers were nice. Fairways lies were very tight. It is definitely frustrating to hit a good drive in the middle of the fairway and then have to play off a very tight lie with grass extremely short if there is grass at all. I got a great deal on the cost so I was very pleased with that. We discussed how San Diego County golf courses are losing the ability to keep up their courses due to the rising costs of water/maintenance. It is tough to keep course tee times affordable for the average golfer and keep courses maintained. It seems if you want to play nicely maintained course you have to play a high price.

golf club

very nice round. a bit too tough for me from the white tees. am 80 with an 18 handicap so i needed senior tees, but there are none. the fairways are thin which is also hard for me to strike down and take divot. greens are in good shape. bunkers are not white sand, which made it hard to exit. some tees are sloped a bit. the layout is very nice and challenging. would play here again and do a red/white combo. played on a Monday at noon. not too busy, so pace of ply was fine. finished in four hours in a threesome.

Dog track don’t waste your money

Horrible conditions. There are way better courses around here to play. The greens are horrible and the fairways are hard pan. Never going back.

AwesomeExperienve!

From the moment we got to The Golf Club of California, we felt “special”.. Our reservation through GOLFPASS, was in their system. The Proshop operator said, “Welcome. We were expecting you. Is this your first time here?” We said, “Yes” and were given a course guide and a brief introduction into some special tips for several holes He told us to make use of the Course Guide and we would be fine. Most of the holes were a bit unusual due to the geography’. We used every club in our bags during the day. For a late November gorgeous day, all the greens were perfect, fairways were green and much of the rough was green, but some of the rough had gone dormant.

Everyone was friendly, from the pro shop, to the starter, to the snack bar manager. We will look forward to going back next year when we visit Southern California again. Highest praise and thanks to everyone at the Golf Club of California. Out of a possible 5 rating, they get a perfect 5 rating from us.

Rambo

Wonderful course in great condition in spite of dry conditions. It' has some challenging holes that just fun to play if you're not worried about your score.
I highly recommend the course.
Staff were super friendly. We're Canadians and our team, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers were playing in our National Championship called the Grey Cup. The staff made extra effort to find the game for us when we came in after golf. Our team WON!
A perfect day in 'Paradise!'

That par 3

The par 3 with the stupid bunker in the middle of the green is probably the most idiotic thing I have seen. When we played the flag was directly behind the bunker with a landing area of 2 yards! Overall the course is pretty tight and curvy. Small greens means your approach shot must be on point.
