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.

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) 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.

Walked the Blues (6432/70.4/125) twilight for $23 with Andy, Ernesto & Keith in 4H 35M. The slow 4some in front of us playing the whites was almost 3 holes behind by the end of the round. The weather was in the high 70's, partly cloudy and breezy.

Walked the Blues (6432/70.4/125) twilight 10/6 for $23 with RGM2525, John & Sean in 3H, 40M. The weather was warm and fairly calm, very nice golf weather.

Most of the tees were lush with few unfixed divots, nicely maintained.

The fairways are mostly lush, well maintained & had good coverage overall.

The rough is generally lush and deep enough to let your ball settle down just enough to be penal. Some scattered hardpan areas in the rough. The rough around the greens is mowed down and makes for nice chipping.

The traps had a decent amount of sand, but they had definitely not been raked today. Medium to large grain dark brown sand that usually plays better than it looks.

The greens putted medium speed, were consistent from green to green & were very receptive to holding approach shots. Overall, typical poa annua, a bit bumpy as the ball slowed near the hole later in the day.

Fun layout with plenty of hills & trees that keep you honest. Medium to somewhat challenging course to walk, constantly up/down rolling hills on the front 9, the back 9 is flatter. The customer service was good, quick, efficient check in. No drink cart on a course that has removed multiple water stations should be taken into account before you tee off here. Recommended = yes, medium difficulty course in above average condition @ good prices.

Walked the Blues (6432/70.4/125) twilight for $23. Got matched up with 3 collegiate golfers who all had alot of game, thanks Lexie, Julie & Amanda for a nice round! POP was good, 4 hours in hot, still conditions.

Medium to somewhat challenging course to walk, constantly up/down rolling hills on the front 9, the back 9 is flatter.

Most of the tees were lush with few unfixed divots, very nicely maintained.

The fairways are mostly lush, well maintained & had good coverage overall.

The greens putted nice overall. Medium fast, consistent from green to green & were very receptive to holding approach shots. Overall, typical poa annua, a bit bumpy as the ball slowed near the hole later in the day.

An oddity is that almost all the normal portable water stations on the course were not out today? Fun layout, medium on the challenge scale, but there are plenty of hills & trees that keep you honest. Twilight rates are very good, 1st time I played here in 5 months. The course is still in good to very good condition overall. Definitely nicer condition that many other local courses. It won't be 5 months before I am back.

Walked the blues (6432/70.4/125) as an early a.m. single. POP was excellent, 3 1/2 hours not rushing or being rushed is a great way to play golf. Different course early when the conditions are calm. Medium to somewhat challenging course to walk, constantly up/down rolling hills on the front 9, the back 9 is flatter.

The traps had a decent amount of sand and they were very well maintained from a raking perspective. Medium to large grain dark brown sand, but it plays better than it looks.

Decent layout, medium on the challenge scale, but there are plenty of hills & trees that keep you honest. Marshalls are consistently out patrolling the course. No drink cart today, but there are plenty of water stations on the course. It is a GREAT deal to play here later in the day, but the morning rates make playing here more questionable IMO. However, one thing I really like is that they offer morning, mid morning, early twilight and twilight rate alternatives. I have found the customer service to be much improved from what I remembered @ this course before I moved to Portland in 2012. It is in nicer condition that many other local courses. For those two reasons, I have now played here as much in the last 6 months as in the last 10 years combined. If you desire an alternative from a super challenging course, this is a good mid level alternative.
