Nice course

Course in really good shape. Would have been a five star but a couple things bothered me. There were these yellow strings sticking up on the sides of the fairways, they were obviously there for a reason, but I'm not sure why. Also on the 16th blue tee, you have a creek directly in front of you with a big plant that kinda gets in the way of your shot. The 6500 yard blues aren't too hard if you are a good 6, 7, 8, 9 iron player. Beautiful piece of property with tons of wild life. Being on vacation from New England it's nice to see new animals like Roadrunners. Definitely play if your in the area.

Fantastic course, great value

Visiting from Illinois, I picked a great place to play. It was likely one of my best golf experiences.

The course is challenging enough to give good golfers a challenge on some holes, but the fairways are wide enough to keep the course forgiving for players with a lower skill level. The greens are well maintained and roll true.

The one strange thing is there is no turn after the 9th hole, but it wasn't a large problem as there a restrooms around the course, and the beverage cart passed us a few times.

The staff is some of the friendliest you'll come across at a public-access course, which makes the greens fees well worth the value. You won't come across better value in Orange County. I highly reccomend playing this course and look forward to returning.

Great value for the money

Been playing here for years. Been member of men's club for the past 5

Some of the greens need work. Weekend rounds can be long if you get stuck behind slow players. There's alot of places where balls can be lost and people spend lots of time looking for them

However, the course is very fun to play. Lots of challenging holes. In the afternoons, the wind can kick up a bit on the back 9 and add some difficulty.

I play here all the time. Pro Shop staff is great, and O'Neils bar and grill is great place to unwind. Your first beer is the cost of your score.

Food is really good, and lots of tv's for watching sports. Big fan of this course in what is a very over-priced Orange County Market.

Home Course

Love this course. Close to my house and I play it quite a bit. Great driving range and putting green. No chipping area. Make sure you call ahead to see if the greens have been punched recently (like any course). Fairways are in good shape and course has nice views and scenery throughout. 19th hole is a popular spot for grub, drinks, hanging out, etc. Big patio. Friendly cart gal staff from my experience. Enjoy coming out to AT, give it a try.

Love Arroyo

I played here last Friday and had a great time. Although the greens weren't in great shape, the fairways were in good shape and almost guaranteed a good lie every time.

Member Review

For the cost of a family membership this is a huge value. Preferred tee times and discounted rates that can't be beat. I play here every Sunday. I play from the black tees. The fairways are smooth and green roll true. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. O'neills is a great dinning experience for after round drink and dinner. There are a couple of things that could be improved. There is no turn at the ninth hole. So plan on playing 18. There also in no short game practice area. There is a great putting green and good driving range that is always into the wind so dont try and get good distance measurements. Overall Arroyo Trabuco is a great value for the money.

Poor greens

For 75 bucks, one would expects the greens to be in decent shape. 8:20 tee time and greens were horrible as if playing twilight on Sunday after weekend foot traffic. Won't come back.

Solid Track

Good course. I've been playing here since it opened. When it first opened the course was very firm, the fairways were like concrete. Now the course has softened up. It does not play as fast as before, but the fairways are more receptive. Good greens too.
