fun to play course

I had the luck joining a wonderful flight playing this course the first time. Course is in good shape and not so hard to play, but has nice long holes were you need a decent tee shot. Staff was very friendly and well organized. Overall I had a great afternoon on the golf course and will definitely come back. In fact, booked my next tee time already.

Best condition in years

The Mesa Linda course has never been in better condition. Fairways were near perfect, and spectacular for a Municipal course.

Mesa Linda course during coronavirus restart

Course was in good shape after the long shutdown. Greens were in great shape. Fairways were well groomed and the rough was not overgrown or covered in mowed grasses. Flags were in with a foam piece in the bottom of the cup to make the balls easy to retrieve. I have played other courses without flags and one with the cup turned over. The foam piece in the bottom of the cup is a much better way to do it. The course was walking only, but this is an easy course to walk. The cool breezes off the ocean made it great round. I highly recommend this course. It is a great value!

Excellent Course

Beautiful & lengthy course. Perfect course if you hit long shot. A little bit of tired if you walk, but will not regret.

Golf in the time of Covid

I've played here multiple times and like it; it's a good location, good price, good course. But for whatever reason, Costa Mesa won't allow them to rent either drive or push carts, so we had to carry 18 holes. And the mid-course snack bar was closed. Why? We didn't get a discount, but they save money on amenities. Doesn't seem right. So make sure you bring a snack! Even the water fountains are blocked off...

Excellent Shape!!

With most courses being shutdown for the last 6 weeks, walking only, and the amount of rain we had this spring; the course was in excellent shape.

Excellence

First time playing the track. I thought the greens were fantastic. Woth mow play over the last month the fairways were in great condition. Smooth rolling fairways with nice dog legs on some.pf the holes. There are some long par 5s. Still reachable with solid shots. Great course for the money.
