Stinky as always

If you can stand the smell, it's a good value especially in the afternoons. Usually less than $1 per hole for full length 18 with usually okay conditions.. Today's stink was extra strong. Nominated for stinkiest finishing hole in CA! Extra rough roughs today but just don't get in the rough!

A good value but smelly

Hole 17-18 is right next to the waste water treatment so you will be heavily distracted by the smell. However it's in pretty decent condition and usually a good value. Walking only on this course right now. Chino Creek is cart exclusive, I believe. Decent layout with some dry creeks running through fairway so not a driver every time. Usually hot and a bit windy but today was just windy which will affect shots. For first timers might be confusing as the layouts will cross roads four times.

Fairway layout

Since there is no gps provided and two golf courses intertwined together but no noticable signs, it's confusing for the first time golfer to play comfortably.

Playing During COVD-19 Virus Conditions

Great day for golf. Required to walk on Butterfield Stage Course after 8:00 AM. Excellent pace of play. Complied with requirement to wear a mask, etc. Enjoyed the opportunity to get on a golf course again. Great rate - $16/ person walking with a 1:30 PM tee time on GOLFNOW.

Smells terrible

This course had a good layout, and for the most part was an easy course to play. The only thing that was awful was the horrid smell in your nose the whole time. It didn’t matter what hole you were on, it was terrible. That alone would not bring me back.

On top of that, there was no opportunity to get refreshments, and no sight of a cart girl of any kind.

Re-opening After COVID-19

The management (Kevin) did a great job and was very organized despite the modifications due to COVID-19. I figured that the course would be more challenging as the rough on all courses re-opening is very deep. This should change over the coming weeks.
The staff was very friendly.

Happy to be playing again

Everything about our round met or exceeded expectations, except for the trimmings of grass that were left all over the rough. Other than that we had a great day on the course and it was in great condition. You can definitely tell it was maintained during the shutdown.

Nice Course to Walk, Reasonably Priced....

For the price it’s as good as you’ll find around OC & Riverside on the weekends. Course was in pretty good shape. Greens were in very good shape. Didn’t really interact with any staff onsite but they’ve been courteous in the past. Pace of play could’ve been slightly better, but for a Saturday afternoon it wasn’t horrible. I’d recommend this course to anyone looking for a course to walk, that’s in good shape and is a good value.

Slow play in front without marshal speeding up the play

The course did not notify me about walking only on the day. They did offer me a pull cart. The problem was the foursome before me played very slow. The new social distancing rule does not allow passing the group in front, but there was no marshal to speed up the play. The 18 hole game lasted over 5 hours in the heat.

Better than I was expecting

First time playing in a couple of years so didn't have great expectations of my game. Chose this course because of it and it was better than what I expected. Hooked up with a couple of great guys which made it far more enjoyable for me as they were very gracious and encouraging. Only issue we had was towards the last few holes, the group behind kept hitting up on us, even after apologizing for doing so the first time. We were ready to let them play through but they never caught up with us on the tee box. Would have been great if there was a marshall around.
