Worth your time if the price sounds good

As always, the range, chipping green, and putting green are all very adequate. Funny, I never see anyone on the flat chipping green. It's tucked off to the side wherein you just kind of forget about it until you're coming up to tee off on #1.

Overall, the course was in great shape. We've had another (normal) dry summer but they've done well at keeping everything looking good. Even with the high number of players coming out during the pandemic (because folks are 'working' from home), I found no evidence of it being over-played etc. Water -- wet -- found it once. The bunkers had nice dry, fine sand in all of them; I unfortunately found way too many of these on this particular round. If I'm being picky, I do prefer a little moisture in the sand as that's just what I seem to find elsewhere. Today, I hit one straight into the wind only to be showered with a wall of fine sand.

I'm still left wanting more yardage markings. I personally use an app for yardage and scoring. But the guys I'm playing with don't so they're always asking me for yardage as if I'm their personal caddie. This kind of interrupts my game, my concentration, and runs down my battery quicker. It would just be nice if the course had more visual clues. The 150 yard pole isn't enough. Again, I'm a fan of big yellow/blue/white/red painted stripes on the cart path. That or get GPS on the carts. Pretty sure paint would be a lot cheaper though. :)

We did have an issue while playing #2 and #3. It appears some jackhole lives in the apartments next to the #3 tee box. They think it's funny to use one of those baby bullhorns that has little siren chirps etc. They opted to do it while we putted, teed off, and hit second shots. They're going to tick off the wrong golfer someday and that wrought iron fence won't keep anyone from jumping over it for an in-your-face 'conversation.' I hope it doesn't come to that. But karma just shouldn't be tested sometimes. Anyway, I called the pro shop from the #4 tee box to report the harassment because a) I want it stopped if possible, b) I don't want other players to have to deal with it, and c) I don't want someone ending up hurt and on the news because of such jackholery. The pro shop said they'd send someone out to do what they could. Who decides to live in a decent apartment complex way out in this neck of the woods, gets a unit facing the golf course (for scenery) etc, and then decides to mess with the players? Really!? REALLY!?

Oh, and the housing construction continues .. mostly along #12 & #13. I'm sure it'll all be filled in by the next round I play here. And of course you can hear the traffic on the SH130 toll road. Sorry, just feeling slightly bummed that one of my local 'country' courses is now urban. Still, I do enjoy the layout of this course and the amenities they offer. Hopefully the all-Inclusive package (golf with buffet breakfast/lunch) comes back soon. Go away COVID-19!

First Time Playing

Great round, but hurried

Was having a great time and round with some friends. But on 16, we were told to hurry play. We had only been on the course for three hours. Ahead in time.
Other than that, the course was wonderful and lush. Didn’t hit a bunker until 18, but was nice sand and kept.
This is a great course, and I’d recommend to anyone. Not too difficult, although I did play from the white tees today. Will play blues from now on.
Maybe a membership in the future?!?!?

One of my favorites

well-maintained, popular with the locals; forgiving but some holes are challenging with lots of beaches :) just a course that you want to come back over and over again.

Course was in great shape from tee to green. Check in was easy. Range was in good shape. Starter got us off a little early. Only complaint is you can’t drive your cart to your vehicle in the parking lot and it was raining when we finished so I had to trek across the parking lot in the rain instead of under cover.

Love Star Ranch - Greens punched and sanded recently

Nice people in a nice setting. 2 things to know. 1) absolutely no coolers (even with water and food) allowed and you have to carry your bags to the cart area (ie no carts in the parking lot) and 2) the greens look to have been punched and sanded on Monday 8/10. We were not made aware of that and were a little surprised when we got there. Other than those issues, Star Ranch has always been a great place to play.

First Time

Overall course was excellent and well maintained, The greens were sand down for maintenance care., so made putting very difficult, but I understand it’s all for the best. I would gladly play this great course again and would highly recommend it.

The Golf Club at Star Ranch

This is a fun course that offers a few challenges. The biggest drawback today was that the greens had recently been punched and sanded, so they were a bit difficult to play on.
