Fun round with interesting configuration
The fairways were quite soggy after a long rainstorm but the course was very playable. Best thing here is the interesting layout with several elevation changes and twists and turns to keep you challenged while still offering good scoring opportunities. Staff is friendly. Pace of play can be slow. Good value for the money so give it a try!
Franklin Canyon - Front 9
I always enjoy Franklin, this round was a late afternoon tee time where we were trying to beat the sunset. There isn't a 9 hole rate but the plan was to play the front 9.
Afternoon was pretty slow on the front, however when we arrived at the turn the foursome turned into a twosome and we replayed a few on the front 9 before the sun was too low and it started to get cold.
Overall good time as usual, it is dry they don't appear to do a lot of watering but greens were in good shape.
Reliable, pretty course
We play Franklin Canyon fairly often. It's a nice challenge, without any very difficult or easy holes. Pretty spot you'll want to be out in. Like other courses around here, it could use some rain and this week looks to provide it.
Great views and course easy to play.
Beautiful weather and some great views....found the course to be fun, a bit challenging on some holes and a great value. I would play here again!
Nice day for golf ⛳️
The Franklin Canyon golf course is worth it. Staff are friendly, greens-fee deals can be found, & course is in pretty good shape! The fairways are mostly dried out, so even if you miss-hit a shot, it rolls a mile! The layout features many challenging holes, with quite a few having to hit over barrancas to get to the green. Greens are in really good shape. Had a good time, & will go back ⛳️ !
This course could be great but needs a major turf overhaul. Clearly they are struggling to get the watering right. Flooding in some spots and just dead in others. I would avoid this course at the end of the season.
Course is in poor shape
Tee boxes are normally pretty beat up. Bunkers are always pretty poor. The fairways are usually pretty good but, today, they were horrible. A total cow pasture with bare spots all over. You have to move your ball off the dirt and onto a patch of grass. Greens are their saving grace.
Going Down Hill
I love Franklin Canyon. It may be the time of year but the course was in terrible shape. The greens had been "plugged" in the last week or so, but they were green. Slow and bumpy, but not terrible.
However, the fairways were terrible (dried out with very little green grass) and most ball washers were broken. Several water fountains did not work. Seems like the place is "going downhill".
Not in great condition
It is in a pretty setting, the staff is very friendly, and the greens are in good condition. The pace of play was 4h30, which is great for a public course on a weekend. There is hardly any grass outside of greens and tee boxes, just a few brown patches. Rough is mostly dirt, as are the bunkers. The course looks nothing like the nice pictures online. Price would be good if the course was in better shape. Otherwise seems steep for a dirt track.
Nice weather. Good day playing.
Course conditions were good in fairways. Greens in good shape. Weather was great!
Tee boxes are among the worst you'll see, and perhaps to restore some the tee boxes were moved way up. Fairways have a way above average amount of ruts & divots as well.
Greens were inconsistent, some hard, some over watered.
All that said, I like the track, it has a nice mix of holes. Needs TLC
A solid course that forces you to have to shape your shots. The front nine is designed for scoring with a short par 5 to start as well as short par 5 that ends that nine. The back nine is much harder capped off by the 13th hole which is all uphill.
I had a great time playing this course, I just wish the pace of play was faster as I played even with the group ahead of me from the sixth hole onward, yet they didn't want me to join them or play through them. I am sure it is a luck of the draw and nothing about the course.
Lots of room to miss on both sides. Small greens that are much faster than I expected.
Slowly putting this course back together. Greens in great shape, Refurbishing several tee boxes, have removed many dying pines over the last few years. Sand traps still need work.
Fun and challenging
Played on a weekday Monday afternoon was a good pace greens were in good shape.my wife and I had an enjoyable round.
We recommend this Course.
Good greens. No water
Front desk staff member was rude when asked about $ 1 surcharge bad initial impression fairways were brown in alot of areas. Greens were good. No cart service and no water offered on the corse on a hot day
