Heat broke at this valley course and the temperature was perfect as was the course. Greens were well kept and the course was plush in spite of the previous heat. Played a fast paced round (2 1/2 hrs.), great day!

It was fairly easy course to play if your handicap is around 18-20. However, I didn't expect this place to have par 3 mostly. If you're looking for regular golf course with par 72, this is not the place. It has 61/64 par depending on which tee you play.

Called ahead because we were going to be late. Golf shop very gracious and accommodating. Course was in good shape. Nothing challenging but many fun little par 3's. Only problem was that play was so slow that it took us 4 hours to play a course that should have taken no more than 3.

This was a fun course, even though it it didn't have any par 5's. The pace of play was great and the greens were not too fast or slow. The 17th hole makes it all worth it.

We got stuck behind the West Ranch high school golf team. I think they had 4 groups. It was ridiculous, they thought they were playing in the masters . At one point the last group was 1 1/2 holes behind but still continued to take multiple practice swings, mark and line up every putt from multiple angles,including putts from inside a foot. It took us 2 1/2 hours to play the front nine and it's an executive course with only 4 par fours on the front. We waited on every shot. We talked to their coach on the 10th tee and he defended the slow play saying "it's 2 hours to play 9 here always. Thank god they only played 9 because we breezed through the back in 1 hour and 15 minutes without waiting on any shot. The course was in pretty bad shape and the slow play made it worse. I'll pass on Vista Valencia in the future.

Our threesome is average, bogey golf that can score at times. We scheduled an 8:37am tee time so as to be wrapped up well ahead of Superbowl Kick off.

-our first vision was the "Course Ambassador" talking to TWO foursomes waiting on the 2nd tee -

-next vision was the largely ungroomed state of the course. The fairways were an average of 75% brown or bare dirt, even after weeks of rain here in Southern CA

-practice facility completely full, ball dispenser completely empty

-line up for the starter at 8:20am and told to back up as there was another foursome ahead of us

-starter informs is "we are running around 20 minutes behind" at 8:30am!!

-running that slow on a Sunday and walkers were still being sent out

-2 foursomes go off before us, play the tips and proceed to rip balls into the OB 100 yards down, continue to play in this fashion.

-the course ambassador does nothing with their poor play, even as the gap in front of them became 1 to 2 holes and they never offered to let us play through. In addition, they were occasionally dropping a second ball when they missed a putt.

-not sure who the designer set this course up for but a few of the par 3's are over 200 even from the whites and reds. Most players refuse to use those and are trying to hit from the blues.

-I would refer to this course as a cow pasture but that would literally be an insult to cow pastures!

The operators of this course should be embarrassed to open it for play each day in its current condition and should be charged with a felony for charging $40 to play it. I have played 35 years, muni's to private, this is the worst course I have played. I don't know that I would play here again even with a full comp. Sad really!

Total agreement! I have been playing this course 2-3 times per year for over 35 years. I will not ever play this dump site again - better suited as a landfill.

Got a great time playing here and for the very first time my Wife and I scored 83 and78 here with the greens just recently having been aerated, not bad for a couple of young seniors and we only paid $16.00 each on a hot deal!

Somehow they still manage to keep this course in great shape even thought there is a water issue everywhere you play.

The course played fast, I played as single and was done in just over 2 hours. This course plays 3.5 hours regularly , I play fast. The greens are difficult , break and play fast, maybe I'm used to playing city courses , greens make it interesting . I will be back.
