Fun Short Course

A nice course to work on your irons, tight and lots of doglegs. No driver needed until the 10th. IF your a hacker bring at least a dozen balls.

Adorable

Fun track, played with some guys I used to work with. They were able to give me landmark points for tee shots as I'd never played this course. Some interesting hole configurations, helpful if you can shape your shots, and LOTS of gravity on the greens.

Needs some work

Course is in need of some serious work. Tee boxes are beat up ,fairways are brown in a lot of spots .. Pace of play is just awful , 2 1/2 hours to play 9 holes on an executive course is just too slow no one to keep groups moving along the regulars at this course don’t care if they are holding groups up .. $45 green fee is way overpriced.. My regular foursome won’t be coming back .. A plus is the starter is really friendly and the staff also

Great Track, Check Your Ego

The course is short, but technical. The setup is brilliant boasting a 230 yard par 3 as well as a few driveable par 4 greens that taunt your ego. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Due to affordability this course stays busy. The Hilltop Bar & Grill is really good. Great views for 18 wonderful holes.

NOT GOOD never coming back!

Ever since they went under new management this place has really dropped in quality. I showed up early for my tee time the front guy didn’t know what he was doing and he wouldn’t let me check in early. I’ve never heard of not being able to check in early? I ask for a large bucket of balls he says they are out of balls I can only give you a small? What? Okay so I take my small bucket come back at my tee time to check in he tried to charge me the wrong price, and they didn’t have a cart ready yet. I had to wait 15 min past my T time meanwhile 4 different groups go in front of me on to the first tee? I get my cart finally and pace of play is now super slow obviously. And to cap off my experience the cart I waited for died on the 9th hole and had to get a lift back to pro shop haha. Never coming back.

An uphill battle

This is not an easy course! Driving to it you are driving uphill through Burbank, and the climb doesn’t stop when you get to the course. The 10th tee feels like you are looking straight up the hill. Challenging but enjoyable... I only wish it was a little quicker paced.

Challenging Short Course, you will use most of your clubs off of the tee

Tight, narrow fairways, but very short par 4's and Par 5's, the par 3's are crazy long. One is actually 230 yards up hill and another you cannot see the green you have to hit it over a mountain! Really enjoyed the. Course minus the greens, 4 footers misses run off the green.

Good Value but lacking cart keys

Despite arriving 45 minutes before tee time and checking in early, still managed to tee off 20 minutes late due to the fact that they were short cart keys. Apparently there was a tournament earlier in the day but this is simply poor management. Also notified staff at the turn of a group of 6 that was slowing down play. They did nothing. Would be nice to have a marshal at least on busier days. Whats normally a 4 hour round was a 5+ hour round and our 12:30 group was the last to finish before dark due to slow play and late start

Storm ravaged

The course was hit by bad weather the prior day to my play so walking only permitted. The elevation changes are quite unique until you have to walk them. Once course is cleaned up from the downed trees and limbs it will be much better. The greens are the trickiest I've played. Will go back under different conditions and only when carts are available. Guess I am that old.
Overall course is set up for target golf so expect narrow precise target locations or you will loose strokes. Takes a couple times to play to get your quadrants figured out so don't expect too low of a score your first time around. Would be great fun under different conditions. Right now I'm sore and wore out from playing billy goat up and down the mountain all day.

Friendly, Accommodating, & great value

Super friendly staff. We had 2 cancel from our 4some the day before. I called and it wasn’t a problem. When I arrived at the course they still had us as a 4some in the computer and I was afraid we would have to pay but the gentleman in the pro shop was super accommodating. Pace of play was a little slow but it think that was more do to the beginners we ended up playing with. Overall great value and A+ staff.

Good course I have played a few times before. This last time pace of play was horrendous, 20 minute waits on most tees and no one doing anything to help move it forward. In my experience this is not typical but we left on 14. A good friendly club but they need to do better on days like these. Today the course was a zoo.
