Nice Course - if you have 7 hours to play

The course is great, fun layout, well taken care of, the only consistent problem I’ve had at this course is pace of play. The Marshalls don’t enforce any pace of play, and you find yourself sitting at a line of the tee box for 20 minutes sometimes.

Most recent, it took 2 hours to complete 7 holes. Last time it was 5 hours to complete 12 holes. I have yet to have the chance to complete this course, yet alone do it in less than a day.

It’s super cheap though, so can’t complain too much, just know you’ll spend most of your time waiting for someone to get off of a green, and with little to no enforcement of pace of play that can ruin the full experience . This place could easily be one of the best public courses in OC if they had some form of regulation for people moving at a decent time pace. Maybe even scheduling tee times further out or combining groups better would help if they can’t get a Marshall to actually do rounds and patrol.

PACE OF PLAY MUST GET BETTER!!!

Love both courses at CMCC... but the Pace of Play is HORRIBLE on both courses! It just takes you out of your game waiting so long... at times it was group on the tee box waiting with two other groups waiting to get on the tee box. Outside of this I love playing theses courses.

Got charged twice

Even though I paid for my round in the pro shop window, I got charged in full again with the explanation that I “did not show up”. I’ve tried to get a hold of the manager multiple times a day for five days now. I still haven’t been able to reach him.

I really like Costa Mesa CC

We played Mesa Linda for probably the 7th time this year. The greens have recovered from the annual plugging and were smooth, nice and pretty fast. This is a great value for the money and is almost always in very nice condition. Enjoy!

Fairways

The greens are as good as it gets but the fairways are bad , more hardpan than grass. Also, the yard markers are barely visible, put blue, white and red stakes at the distances,it wouldn’t cost much but would give CMGG a cheap way to add class to the course.

Staff sucks

Rude staff. Pace of play is horribly slow and no Marshall’s to keep the pace up. Spend your money elsewhere

Nice walkable course

Play started on time, finished on time. Flat course that was easy to walk. Greens in excellent shape, fairway very good shape - some muddy spots post rainstorm. Clean restrooms, ample parking, outside check in. . .

Very poor service and poor treatment also discriminated

I met a woman who worked there, Mary Beth, for check-in to play golf. She was very rude and answered my questions insincerely and in an irritating voice. I felt very uncomfortable and discriminated to me. Also Mary Beth, uses a microphone in a very loud voice and make me a shock when I walk away.

Thank you !!
