had a fine time

Los Lagos course is long from back tees. Pretty wide open and errant shots not typically penalized severely. Greens definitely give a challenge with slopes and undulations.

Fairways are in fine shape this early in summer.

Weather was warm, but cooling breeze off the ocean made it ideal.

Pretty good driving range and putting practice areas.

Solid bang for your buck

Played this course on a whim late afternoon on a Sunday. It wasn’t packed but the threesome in front of me was definitely taking their time.

Course was in great considering. Tee boxes were well maintained. Greens are super fast though

45 Minutes Per Hole

The days of $30 rounds of golf are gone for me as of today. From 1st tee to 2nd tee...45 minutes. The first hole was in good shape, I was paired with very nice people, but I just don't have the patience for this crap. #costamesacountyclub I would prefer to pay $100 plus and be able to play a round of golf in a reasonable amount of time.

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.

Hello, we are extremely sorry to hear about your recent experience with us. We work very hard to accommodate everyone that plays at our course and for this to happens lets us know that we need to work even harder. We have multiple handicap parking but due to the amount of play this weekend all the spots were full. Next time please give us a call and we can come out and assist you. Again we look forward to having you back and are sorry for your last experience.
