Stay away from Costa Mesa Golf Club

My wife and I played Costa Mesa golf course and we were put right behind a five-some that were extremely slow....It took 5 1/2 hours to play which is absolutely ridiculous.The Club management do not care about pace of play in the least and we WILL NEVER play this course again.Would advise anyone against playing this golf course.

Los Lagos

Great public course. New carts and well maintained greens. Course has character with some dog legs and tree lined fairways. This course attracts some really good players, more so than surrounding courses. This course has no marshal or anyone who prevents rounds from being 5-6 hours. Slow play is the standard most of the day with certain holes such as 4 and 7 can have as much as 3 groups backed up. Back nine goes faster because of the amount of golfers that quit early. I really enjoy this place from adequate parking to great practice facilities and nice men’s locker room.

Overall Conditions

Fairways and Greens are great. I played the longer course and pace of play was horrible. I recommend playing Mesa Linda their shorter course. Never had pace of play issues.

Boxing Day golf

I was visiting family in Newport Beach Ca for the holidays and needed to get out of the house the day after Christmas. I found a tee time at Coasta Mesa country club . Great staff, two 18 hole courses with a good pace of play the course has a nice layout with excellent greens it’s probably the best value in O/C

Los Lagos after the rain

It had just poured buckets of rain the day before so we could only walk the course. The no cart decision was a good decision because there were some ares of standing water on the course but we were able to easily take a drop close by if we were near the water.
The extra water did not affect our enjoyment of the fairways. The greens were excellent and beautiful. They were consistently lush and held our approach shots very well !
I will be back.
