Goose Creek

Rode the Blues (6556/71.0/126) in 4H in overcast, WINDY conditions in the mid 60's. GK Guru outing with JohnnyGK, RGM2525 and Weber2323. Thanks to Johnny, Ron and Mike for a fun round in spite of the wind.

The tees were mowed nicely with good coverage. However, the Blue par 3's were really chewed up today. They had a SCGA qualifer in the morning and it looked like everyone took a divot and no one repaired anything. Several par 3's had a full row of fresh divots obviously made today from marker to marker.

The fairways were semi lush, good coverage, very playable.

The rough also had good coverage and could be penal even though not overly high. Just long enough to make longer clubs challenging.

The traps were very nicely maintained with good quality sand.

The large greens were smooth, firm and medium fast. So firm they were few ball marks. Chipping and stopping irons in the wind was a challenge.

Enjoyable and fun course to play, tough w/o being overly punitive. Nice, all grass driving range and good chipping/putting practice area. No drink cart today. The customer service was very good from all encountered. Course was in very nice shape, highly recommended.

Goose Creek

Rode the Blues (6556/71.0/126) in 4H, 20M with 24hourgolf, MrKich and USCDodger in overcast, breezy conditions in the mid 60's. Thanks to Larry, Mathew and Daniel for a fun round!

Love this Schmidt/Curley layout. Course knowledge is helpful on many holes to know where not to miss around some of the large green complexes. Around numerous greens are runoff areas where you are unlikely to get the ball up/down if you miss there.

The tees were well maintained with good coverage. Only a few par 3's needed divot attention.

The fairways had good coverage and were still soft from the recent rains. Definitely not lush, but very playable.

The rough also had good coverage and could be penal even though not overly long. Just long enough to mess with longer clubs.

The traps were decently maintained with good quality sand.

The large greens putted nice overall. Firm, more medium speed than medium fast. So firm they were few ball marks.

All grass driving range and nice chipping/putting areas are a +. Well above average course that has 18 good to excellent golf holes. Enjoyable and fun course to play, tough w/o being overly punitive. #18 is a classic finishing hole, long par 4 with water prominently in play on every shot. Drink cart out making the rounds several times.

The customer service was very good for all encountered. Course was in very nice shape, but it paled in comparasion to multiple tounds I played this week @ Desert Willow and PGA West. $89 including range balls to play is high even for a weekend primetime, but still highly recommended.

Excellent Conditions

I was out here from the East Coast for the holidays so any December golf is an absolute treat. This course has a lot of rep for the qualifying events it has hosted and it certainly lives up to expectations. From tee to green, conditions were excellent. Fairways were close to perfect. Greens were immaculate for the amount of play they look like they get. Greens were fast and firm, but very fair. My favorite part of this course is the thought you must put into shot selection from your tee and approach shots. An example of this is the par 4s require you to either layup or challenge fairway bunkers with driver. Good driving puts you on offense, bad driving puts you on defense. The payoff is flip wedges into most pin locations. The green complexes will make you think about how aggressive you can get with your approach shots due to pins guarded by bunkers or mown down collection areas. You will need a variety of short game shots if you miss greens. Overall, excellent course and round.

Goose Creek

Rode the Blues (71.0/126/6556) in 4H, 10M with weber2323, MrKich and adigitalg8787 in bright, breezy conditions in the mid 60's. Thanks to Mike, Mathew and Gus for a fun round!

The tees were well maintained. No issues with level lies and the coverage was good. Only a few par 3's needed divot attention.

The fairways had good coverage and played firm. Certainty not lush, but very playable.

The rough was more lush than thin. The rough could be penal even though not overly long.

I was not in any traps today, they looked okay.

The large greens putted nice overall. Firm, more medium speed than medium fast. So firm they were hardly any ball marks and chipping to tight pins set up for their qualifier was a challenge.

Love this layout, 1st time I have played here in several years. Course knowledge is helpful on many holes to know where not to miss around some of the large green complexes. Around numerous greens are runoff areas where you are unlikely to get the ball up/down if you miss there.

One of the more enjoyable and fun courses to play. Tough w/o being overly punitive. Well above average course that has 18 good to excellent golf holes. #18 is a classic finishing hole, long par 4 with water prominently in play on every shot.

Goose Creek GC

Goose Creek...just a marvelous place to play a round of golf. There isn't anything this course lacks if you're looking to play, practice or just enjoy a day out. It's home to exceptional practice facilities, a quaint clubhouse and a well stocked pro shop. There's always a friendly greeting, from the cart shed staff, to the pro shop, the cart girls have plenty of ice to spare and right through to the grounds keeping crew.

The layout is superb, the fairways are generous, turning both ways and there is a wonderful flow to the course. The greens are large and undulating, very receptive and roll out fast and true. The bunkers are all in the right places and the challenges are innumerable. Goose Creek is a stern classic layout that will require golfers to examine every part of their game. Brilliant.

Goose Creek GC

Played here on the 9th & 10th, two completely different rounds. Played with reckless abandon on Feb 9 and scored 102. Played on Feb 10 with good swing thoughts, stroked the putts well, avoided penalties & scored a 79. What a difference a day makes. Goose Creek offers a very good mix of holes, fairly wide fairways that will roll out. The greens are exceptional, true rolling, get your putts started on the right line and they will fall in. Good value for your golfing dollar.

Arrive early & take advantage of the practice facilities available before your round...and practice!! The group behind you will appreciate it.

Goose Creek Championship Caliber

Played Goose Creek teeing off at 2pm on the 31st. The course hosted the USGA Mid Am qualifying in the morning. Had use of the Driving range and facilities prior to teeing off. Fabulous facilities in Private Member Club conditions. Staff was above average in all respects.

Course conditions were outstanding. Greens are the courses primary defense, and are in excellent condition. No signs that there is a drought going on, the fariways were lush, and the rough perfection. Out of bounds areas are bamboo forests so forget a ball headed in there.

We played from the USGA blue tees which was a challenge. the tee boxes could have been greens at some muni's.

Love this course.

Enjoyable Course

The course is in excellent condition. Greens are a fair challenge. Generous wide fairways. Love the practice area. You can warm up all facets of your game, putting, chipping, bunker and regular iron and woods. Love the course.

1 of the best Golf facilities, Hands down

Goose creek is hidden, surrounded by bamboo forests and not many people know about it. (at least around me) But once you go there you will definitely go back. It is one of my favorite courses to play at, has the best range, pitching, putting practice areas. Course is in pristine condition, pace of play is better than most LA OC county courses. Costs around 40$ bucks (twilight) but the course is well worth the money.

Great overall facility and fair design, tough greens.

Co-designed by Brian Curley, his designs always have a slight friendliness for driving, so it's never overly difficult for the tee shots, to mostly wide fairways that give you choices on how to approach the greens. On many holes you can go right or left off the tee a little, and have a different look towards the green. You can play a draw or a fade throughout the course, which is what makes the design so clever. What makes the course difficult, are the greens themselves. So the Par 3s are tricky! The variety of the green layouts is what makes this place so tricky and fun to play. Many of them are quite undulated, and if they are packed tight and rolling, the putting can be so tricky! The Poa Annua can be so slippery and wobbly, you have got to be dead-precise. Most of the time they are extremely quick, and you have better hope to have an uphill putt in the right place! But besides the slope and undulation of the greens, most of them have drop offs on many sides, and so you just do not want to miss the greens, EVER! The chipping can be so difficult, you had better have excellent touch and spin control of your wedges. But the greens are on the larger side, so if you can plan to drop it in to the larger area of the greens to stay away from the drop offs, then it's all about your putting and that is one way to play the course well - hit it to the fat of the green. The course is almost in great shape most of the time, however, I think the greens can be rolled flatter as they do tend to get bumpy due to the nature of the grass type. If the wind kicks up, you had better pray, as the approaches to the greens have to be dead accurate! But it's such a fun place to play. I wish it was closer to the city. But the setting is nice, next to the creek, with some bamboos growing and the place is always lush and green. The practice facility is great, on grass and it has a bunker. The practice putting greens are perfect all the time! No wonder why the SCPGA comes here for all kinds of tournaments and qualifiers. Worth the drive any time.

Excellent Course with Variety and Value

On the recommendation of a friend of mine who is a PGA Pro I ventured from Irvine to try this course and since have played it 3 more times despite the hike! The course is in great condition with fairways well-maintained and greens that roll fast and consistent. Water is not an obstacle until 18, but the wind comes into play on every shot. Club selection is imperative! Moderate amounts of bunkers, but they are easy to escape from as the sand is fairly packed, I actually chipped out of one!
Note: there are no GPS systems in the carts so bring your iPhone to calc distances.
Practice facilities are prestine with chipping areas and grass tees.
Resturant is nothing fancy, but does the trick (free soda refills too!).
Overall, the course is a great value providing a great day of golf on a course with character!

Played out here last month and going back this week:

Beautiful course stuck right in the middle of some low income farm community. The course will far outshine and out smell the surroundings. The course really reminded me of some courses I played back home in the Dallas area, relatively flat but the course offers risk/reward golf shots. VERY very green course which is nice to see and the greens are very smooth.

Overall if you are getting tired of canyon golf (like I am) going here is a no brainier. Just please for the love of god repair your divots and ball marks.
