2 stars for pace, 5 for course

Great course but stacking 8-min tee times is brutal. Round took 5:15, not ideal. Just increase prices 20% and cut tee times 15% and everyone is better off!!

Surprisingly speedy round

Course pace tends to run a bit slow but pace of play this day was amazing. Finished our round in 3-1/2 hours and didn't wait once on a single hole for the groups in front of us. We also never felt any pressure from the groups behind. Course conditions were great and greens were running pretty fast. Weather was sunny but back and forth from cool to warm and back to cool and breezy.

Traps

Greens were excellent but ALL sand traps on Mesa Linda were Very Wet. They are working to keep course in good but Not controlling use of water makes for avoiding traps.

Never Again

I played nine holes here before leaving beyond frustrated. I took some time to relax before writing this so now I can lay it out completely.

First and most importantly, the guys working in the pro shop are an embarrassment for this golf course. This is an opportunity for first impressions of the course and the guys in there could not be more unfriendly and unapproachable. I play plenty of golf and do not have high expectations for pro shop interactions but these guys are, by far, the worst I have ever come across.

Second, this course has little, if not any, representation out on the course. Non-existent marshalls and cart girls leads to a compounding problem...slow pace of play and no refreshments while you wait on tee boxes.

Lastly, pace of play. I doubt its much of a problem during the morning or twilight, but in the afternoon this course packs this place as tight as the parking lot can accommodate. Making it even worse are local OCC golfers that are allowed to slip in between scheduled groups...and walk. We had a group of 8-10 OCC golfers try to tell us that they were up on the first tee after we had waited for the 3 full groups in front of us to tee off, meaning we were starting 25 minutes late for the very beginning. It's not a good look for the course and doesn't make alot of paying and scheduled golfers happy. There has to be a better alternative.

To Management: It's a beautiful course and could be really special but in its current operating state, it's lacking the features (and hospitality) that could make it a perfect solution for golfers not wanting to pay more for places like Strawberry, Oak, or Tustin Ranch but also not wanting to waste time and money at other nearby dogtracks. Up the fee's 35% in order to lose a little of the fat that slows and hurts this course and reap the benefits. Until then....

Not for the handicapped!

After surviving Prostate Cancer, I had to have 4 discs fused. However, as a determined person, I exercised and went for physical therapy enough to play golf once or twice a week.
Los Lagos is a long and fun course to play... unless you CANNOT EVER FIND A HANDICAPPED PARKING SPACE.
I had to carry my bag from the very back of this HUGE parking lot that has just a few handicapped spaces. Granted I should have dropped off my bag and drove around to find a closer space, but I really didn't want to leave my above average clubs lying there, unattended. So I carried them back to the clubhouse. I was totally exhausted and the guys at the desk seemed amused. I guess I should have left them and walked back. Needless to say, I was lucky to finish 9 holes. There needs to be more handicapped parking spaces. Otherwise, I would be there more often.

Great local course, especially for the price!!

The Mesa Linda Course is moderately challenging and never gets boring. The condition of this course right now is excellent, even with the with the greens having been aerified fairly recently they are rolling well. As far as reasonably priced local courses go, this one is top-notch. The food is great and the service staff is very friendly. Come down and check it out for yourself!

Tiger for the Win

The driving range is very good. You have the option of practicing on the mats or grass.

This is the course if you need a confidence booster. The fairways are wide open and there isn’t much danger near the greens.
I played with my regular group of guys and the pace of play was great. We never waited on any shots.
I’ll admit that we played a little slower than normal. We were Live Streaming Tiger’s win at The Masters.....

Take a drive to Costa Mesa and play the Los Lagos course. You won’t regret it.

Course was in good shape, but pace of play was horrific. 3 hours to play front nine. They allow and create fivesomes on almost all groups. Many folks quit after nine holes, so pace of play improved slightly to 2.5 hours. There was no Marshall seen on the course to speed play.
