Rough greens and good poops in bundles today
I really like this course, but it was rough today because of irrigation and sand on all the greens. I will be back and hopefully it’s in better condition. as it usually is!
Short but Fun
If you are a long bomber this course will take that arsenal out of your game. It's a par Par 61/64 course with lots of par 3. However don't be fooled they are long par 3 that requires proper shot placement. Fail to land on the green and your short game is tested. Fun and tricky. But what is really cool about this course is Bob and Susan. They are the nicest and warmest husband and wife duo. If you come to the course make sure you bring some doughnuts for Bob. As always FOREEEE!!!!!!!!
Great , but challenging and fun!
Love this course! Close to where I live and the course is fun with allot of challenges throughout! Definitely a great course and for a great value :-)
Great course with allot of challenges aking the way:-)
Little chilly yesterday when we played, but the course looks better after all the rain we have had. Poops from the geese where limited too, so the cleanups was good. Very friendly guy at the front desk when checking inn, and that is always a pleasure :-) We was a party of 4 and had a great time play and will be back again soon....
A windy day however with recent rains the fairways were lush and greens pristine.
Booked T time on Golf now 3 days ahead went there and there was tournament going on and there was delay of 6 to 8 hours . I canceled the booking
Rode the Blues (61.1/105/4386) with Keith and Jason mid day using Forelinx. POP was poor for an executive course, 4H, 15M on a packed Monday. Weather was great, close to 80 and clear with a little breeze.
Had never played here. Fun par 61 executive course with many more legitimate holes than the yardage would indicate. Three long par 3's ranging from 191 - 222 all the way down to three short ones ranging from 81 - 104. None of the par 4's were tricked up, and one was 452 from the Blues. Signature hole is #17, a downhill medium length par 3 with an island green. Overall, a well designed shorter course. The bones are there but the conditions (other than the greens) are rough to very rough around the edges.
The tees were poor. Numerous were thin/unlevel and could use divot repair.
Both the fairways and rough were thin with numerous areas of hardpan.
The sand I was in was surprising good. Greenside traps had plenty of sand, fairway traps were hard packed.
The greens were the high light of the course. Firm, reasonably smooth and downright quick going downhill. Could have been great "but for" all the pitch marks.
The customer service was excellent from everyone. Friendly player ambassador out making the rounds. No drink cart, but there was a busy snack shop at the turn. Basic carts, no GPS. Recommended knowing going in that the p[laying conditions will not wow you, but a fun layout.
Nice course with a variety of par 3-4 and 5.
We where 3 people playing today! It started out great as always with very friendly staff at the pro shop. We picked up our 2 carts and went to check in by the course (by the 1st T). The guy there today was pretty runde (his name was Jesse). We have always been treated nicely and had no problems before.
We might have not know all the rules, but I think Jesse was rude about it! He had no written rules when we requested it? We where 3 players and 2 of the players where in the same cart and shared the clubs, so we had to go back inn and pay $25 for renting a set. This have never been an issue before and we have always keep the pace and are respectful to others. This was not the only thing today! He also pointed out that I had a small bag like cooler in the back of the cart. We where told that we could not bring any food or any drinks with us. This have never been and issue before either, so It did not start of great today after all. I can't say 100%, but one of our players where "black" and it might have had something to do with it? However, we love the course and will give it another chance and will be back soon!
This is my home course due to the fact that it’s the only affordable option in SCV. Would you drive to play this course? No, but for $20 on a weekend it’s tough to beat. It’s surprisingly difficult for an executive. POP 3 hrs 45 minutes which is standard here. Greens are good, but many unrepaired ball marks, which again is standard. Teee boxes, average, traps average, fairways are below average. This course is played a ton as is the case for most American Golf courses. It appears that they put no money back into the course, but if you have a monopoly on affordable golf with sand canyon at $75 as my option I’ll keep playing vista.
Great value and a great course in the neighborhood
I like the challenges and the obstacles this course gives me. Its has a little of everything and will definitely be back as often as I can!
Love this course.
I’ve played this course several times and each time has been enjoyable. The greens are kept up very well as is most of the course. There are a lot of squirrels and geese on the course which can be annoying....or funny depending on how you look at things. I’ve had food items taken from my cart by squirrels and geese refusing to get out of the way. Really the only drawback to the ‘wildlife’ is the droppings left behind. I would play this course more often if I lived closer to it.
Great and fun course!
I love this course! It gives you challanges in all the ways I like...good 3 and 4 par’s! I will be back! Goose poops could be cleaned up a little more frequently though!
This course has the most to make it exciting!
We had a great day with our group of 3 players! There was some challenges throughout the course, but it made it fun! Had a few shots at the driving range first for warm up! Would definitely come back :-)
This is a shorter 18-hole course. Lots of tricky par 3s which are more challenging than you expect. Excellent layout and the pace of play was good. Staff are really cool. Will go back again soon.
Really, really great!
Normally not an executive course guy, but I had a morning to kill in Valencia after dropping Mrs. Dufferpauly off at the eye doctor for a 3 hour test...been about 10 years since I had been here...IT WAS SO MUCH FUN! Fascinating and sporty layout, great greens, and solid breakfast...I will be back!
An executive course for players who don’t like executive courses
Played this monring early on a great GN rate...greens some of the best I’ve ever seen - medium fast and true! Fairways good to excellent, sand good...great layout - the par 4s are challenging (9 and 10 are very hard 4s) and while a couple of par 3s are flip wedges, bunkers guard everything...most of the par 3s are tough...gorgeous island hole 17 from an elevated tee box...staff great, and breakfast was delicious too...give VV a try!
