Rancho

Very unhappy how I played today. Also unhappy with the ocean due to the group ahead of us. Very slow. Took two house to play 9 holes. I really don’t like this course but it’s close to where I live. If you want to just practice it’s ok but if want a challenge it’s not ok

Review

The course was in very good condition. I just didn’t play my normal round since I have a set of custom made irons that I had never used. Great course for iron practice. Not a driving course for tee shots but good for practice.

Nice 9 hole course

Overall nice little practice course. Driving range hit off grass or mats depends on day. Well maintained greens.

Best place to practice

Not many places allow you to hit off the grass anymore.. Tuesday through Thursday the have the grass diving range set up.. large bucket is $9 . The other really cool thing they do is, they offer FREE CLUBS for beginners, women, and children... #RESPECTESSJ

Overall a good course but the greens need some work. They’re to hard for pitch and stick. And hard to read.

Great place to work on your short game. Very well Maintained. Fun design for a 9 hole par 3 muni. Perfect for what it is. Much better than other similar courses in the same type (public par 3 practice rounds of 9 holes).

Groundskeeper Problems

On Dec. 4th. I played Rancho Del Pueblo. I have been having a problem with one of the groundskeepers. Initially he wanted to play golf. That was okay. Later he wanted to hang out with me. Not okay. He started stalking and harassing me on the course. On the 6th. hole near the groundskeepers shed, he yelled out "I hate that guy" five times. I told management about this and other problems with this individual. They did nothing. I have no problems with the other groundskeepers. For my safety and well being, I will not play here.

Groundskeeper Problem

I am having problems with one of the groundskeepers. This individual wanted to play golf and I agreed. Later he wanted to hang out, but I did not. He started harassing me and stocking me on the golf course. On December 4th. he yelled out "I hate that guy" five times. I was chipping on the 6th. hole. The groundskeepers shed was right next to hole #6 where he was at. There was no one around me the time. I complained to management. They did nothing. I have a good relationship with the other groundskeepers. For my safety and wellbeing, I will no longer play here.

No goose poop

I think the course is in its best condition in years! Fairways are lush, greens were true, and hardly any goose poop!
Highly recommended for iron practice. $5 is a great deal! Golf Now service fee makes it just a deal : (

great course to practice your iron and short game

nice course to play and practice your iron shot, there's only 1 hole that is par 4 and the rest are par 3's.
fairways are playable and putting green are in great condition. They have a very good practice area for chipping and putting and convenience of having a driving range to hit your drivers.
