Great Course!

I am new to SoCal so my friend has been taking me around to a few different courses. Before I arrived at Simi Hills I was a bit worried that it was pricier than the other courses we had played; once we got going I knew exactly where that money went, and what great value it was! The fairways are gorgeous, the greens were perfect. I won't lie, I thought the GPS in the cart was overkill, but it did come in handy.

If I could have replayed two holes I would have had my best round of the year... but that's part of life. The pace of play was so much more reasonable that any of the other courses I have played around here... for a Sunday I was thrilled!

I will be back... thanks Simi!

SH... great muni!

Played the Golds (6381/70.4/125) with John in 3.5H in clear, breezy conditions around 80. SH is a nice layout to walk with few tees far from the last green. Fun layout to play with plenty of hills, trees plus a few lakes to keep you interested.

Most of the tees were decently maintained, good coverage with few unfixed divots except for the par 3's.

The Kikuyu fairways had good coverage with a few brown spots. Overall, nice to play from.

The Kikuyu rough here is tough. Not overly long, but it is overly thick. Even a lie seemingly sitting up can be penal.

The sand traps have a decent amount of medium to large grain brown sand that played well.

The greens were recently top dressed, but they putted okay overall, medium speed & were consistent from green to green. They held approach shots.

The customer service was excellent as usual. Saw the drink cart gal several times today.Nice practice putting green that is very comparable to the on course greens, small practice chipping area. Decent driving range with mats 5/7 days. Excellent club repair facility beside the driving range that is usually manned. Medium difficulty course in good condition @ reasonable prices. Recommended = Yes.

Simi Hills

Played the Golds (6381/70.4/125) as a single in less than 3H in clear, breezy conditions approaching 90 degrees. The course is in decent condition for mid Summer... but not nearly as nice as it was a couple of months ago. Most of the tees were decently maintained, good coverage with few unfixed divots. The Kikuyu fairways had good coverage, almost shaggy on a few holes. A few brown spots, but I always had decent lies in the fairway. The Kikuyu rough is penal. Even though it is not overly long, it is overly thick. The sand traps were very nicely maintained. A decent amount of medium to large grain brown sand that played well. The greens had some browned out areas but putted okay overall. They were medium speed & were consistent from green to green. They were not overly firm and held approach shots. A complaint I have here is the areas of encroachment from the Kikuyu collars into the edges of many greens. Fun layout with plenty of hills & trees to keep you interested. Nice practice putting green that is very comparable to the on course greens, small practice chipping area. Medium to somewhat challenging course to walk, constantly up/down rolling hills on the front 9, the back 9 is flat. The customer service was good and saw the drink cart gal several times today. Decent driving range with mats 5/7 days. Medium difficulty course in good condition @ reasonable prices. Recommended = Yes.

SH

Played the Golds (6381/70.4/125) twilight in 3H, 20M. Played 9 with Super seniors Stan & Norm, then 9 as a single. The weather was in the 70's, bright, sunny and calm.

SH lengthened a couple of holes on the Blacks to stretch out the tips a bit more. They shortened a few holes on all the other tees. This should assist POP because on holes 1 & 2 the Blues, Whites and Reds all moved up a tee box. (They now call those the Gold, Silver & Bronze tees) They also added a new set of Jr/Sr Copper tees. New tee markers and new scorecards. Nice improvements!

The tees were fairly lush with most divots recently repaired.

The Kikuyu fairways were mostly lush, well maintained & had good coverage.

The Kikuyu rough was semi lush and mowed down fairly close near the fairways. The farther away from the fairways it gets thinner and there is more hardpan and wood chips/turf reduction areas.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with coarse medium to large grain brown sand.

The greens were not as quick as they usually are here. Putted medium speed and were smooth/consistent from green to green. They were firm but still receptive to holding approach shots.

Nice repair shop beside the driving range where they will regrip or reshaft clubs while you wait. Big shout out to Jason who put a new grip on my Driver that I had ordered free of charge. Decent driving range that is open late with lights.

The customer service was excellent from all encountered. They were running slightly ahead of my scheduled tee time. No Marshall but did see the drink cart once. Medium difficulty course in above average condition @ good prices. Definitely recommended.

Simi Hills

Played the Blues (6432/70.4/125) in 4H, 40M mid day with Mike, T8fish & Lamitchw for their GK Cup match. The weather was sunny, mid 70's with a little breeze. SH is a fun, 35-36 par 71 layout with lakes coming into play on holes 4, 5, 14, 15 & 18. Plenty of mature trees and rollings hills to also keep things interesting. The customer service was excellent. I checked in and they were running right on time for tee times. No Marshall here, but the drink cart was around numerous times. The tees were fairly lush. Several holes could use divot repair. The Kikuyu fairways were mostly lush, well maintained & had good coverage. Beginning to get some summer brown spots, but still good to play from overall. The Kikuyu rough was semi lush and mowed down fairly close near the fairways. The farther away from the fairways it gets thinner and there is more hardpan and wood chips/turf reduction areas. The sand traps were nicely maintained with a decent amount of medium to large grain brown sand. The greens putted medium fast and were smooth/consistent from green to green. They were firm but still receptive to holding approach shots. SH is a challenging course to walk, constantly up/down rolling hills on the front 9, the back 9 is flat. Medium difficulty course in above average condition @ good prices. For a municipal course, tough to beat. Recommended.

SH

Played 27 holes from the Blues (6432/70.4/125) twilight in 5H. Best POP I have ever experienced here. The weather was in the 70's, bright, sunny and breezy. Matched up with Calhoun for 18 and played 9 as a single.

They are clearly getting the course primed to host the Simi City Championship this weekend. The rough was mowed down, the fairways looked as good as I have ever seen them here and they did a very subtle vericutt on the greens earlier in the week. I was told they are planning on having the greens swift and firm for the City Championship this weekend.

The customer service was excellent. I checked in and was sent right to the 1st tee as a single 15 minutes ahead of my scheduled tee time. Challenging course to walk, constantly up/down rolling hills on the front 9, the back 9 is flat.

The tees were fairly lush. However, they had more unfixed divots than I would have expected a few days before their biggest tournament of the year.

The Kikuyu fairways were mostly lush, well maintained & had good coverage.

The Kikuyu rough was semi lush and mowed down fairly close near the fairways. The farther away from the fairways it gets thinner and there is more hardpan and wood chips/turf reduction areas.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with a decent amount of medium to large grain brown sand. A few fairways traps has some rocks that needed to be removed.

The greens putted medium fast and were smooth/consistent from green to green. They were firm but still receptive to holding approach shots.

No Marshall here and no drink cart on weekdays. Nice snack shop on the turn with excellent burgers. Medium difficulty course in above average condition @ good prices. SH is a fun, 35-36 par 71 layout with lakes coming into play on holes 4, 5, 14, 15 & 18. Plenty of mature trees and rollings hills and to also keep things interesting. For a municipal course, tough to beat.

Played the Blues (6432/70.4/125) twilight with Jack & Rich in 4H 20M. The weather was in the high 70's, windy and clear. Fun layout with plenty of mature trees and hills to keep things interesting.

Simi Hills

Played the Blues (6432/70.5/125) with seniors Jeff & Patty in 4.5H on a busy Monday mid-day. We teed off @ 11 am in sunny, breezy conditions with temps in the 80's sandwiched in between 4somes.

The course is looking and playing well. Somewhat challenging course to walk, constantly up/down rolling hills on the front 9, the back 9 is more flat.

The tees were decently maintained, good coverage with few unfixed divots.

The Kikuyu fairways had good coverage and were mostly lush, nice to play from.

The Kikuyu rough is mowed down and more lush than thin. Even though the rough is not high, it's still punitive. Several times we had to be within 5 yards of balls to see them. Farther away from the fairways you could get hardpan, wood chips, thin areas or thick lost ball rough.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with a generous amount of medium to large grain brown sand.

The greens were smooth, putted medium fast and while firm, they still held well struck approach shots.

The customer service was excellent. Their carts have GPS to the front/middle/back of the green and can be adjusted to measure to traps or hazards. The driving range is average, off mats. However they do have a club repair center on site.

Fun layout with plenty of hills & trees to keep things interesting. Medium difficulty course in very good condition @ reasonable prices. Recommended = Yes.

Fun Little Course

Unfortunately the day we played had 25-30 mile an hour wind and so it was extremely difficult. That is one thing to think about when heading to simi valley, it does get windy out there.
However the course was fun and had its good moments. Overall there were some rough areas that needed some love with all the rain they have been getting. But for the price of round, it was well worth it.

For 25 min outside of LA to get a little different track it isn't bad. I personally won't make it a regular play for me but its a good once in a while track to get out to.

Played the Blues (6432/70.5/125) as a 3some in 4H twilight in windy, sunny conditions. The recent rains have the course looking nice.

Most of the tees were decently maintained, good coverage with few unfixed divots.

The Kikuyu fairways had good coverage but were more thin than lush.

The Kikuyu rough is more thin than lush overall. Farther away from the fairways, it is more hit/miss. You could get hardpan, wood chips, brown/thin areas or thick lost ball rough.

Simi Hills

Played the Blues (6432/70.5/125) in 4H on an overcast, rainy, calm afternoon. Matched up with Gunther, Margot & Devin for an enjoyable mid day round.

Fun layout with plenty of hills & trees to keep you honest. Nice practice putting green that is very comparable to the on course greens, small practice chipping area. Medium to somewhat challenging course to walk, constantly up/down rolling hills on the front 9, the back 9 is flat. The customer service was mediocre, not sure why they were adamant that our group could not tee off until the actual tee time when #1 tee was sitting vacant for 15 minutes at a time? Only has a few water stations, so that needs to be taken into account before you tee off here. Overall, the course is in decent condition for mid December.

Most of the tees were decently maintained, good coverage with few unfixed divots.

The Kikuyu fairways had good coverage, more thin than lush.

The Kikuyu rough is more thin than lush in most places. Farther away from the fairways, it is more hit/miss. You could get hardpan, wood chips, brown/thin areas or thick lost ball rough.

Played the Blues (6432/70.5/125) in 4H, 15M in cloudy, calm conditions in the mid 60's. Matched up with Dave, Elliott & Greg for an enjoyable mid day weekend round. The course is in decent condition for mid December and was busy mid day but the pace moved well for a weekend.

A complaint I have here is the areas of encroachment from the Kikuyu collars into the edges of many greens. Can't we edge from time to time and make this a non issue?
