Another good day in South Orange County!

Was teamed up with a couple of good gentlemen as well as good golfers. The course was in good shape and the temps were warmer than expected. Overall had a good day!

Good mostly wide open course.

Greens are almost a 100% recovered from last aerification and are running true. Overall course is in really good shape and was fun to play.

Very Nice Course

Course has a very nice layout. Reasonably priced course. Very good staff. The day that played was unfortunate because it had rained the night before & was extremely wet...cart path only.

Very beautiful, very demanding course.

Very nice course with a lot of elevation changes.The conditions were very good, greens were excellent! Bring your A game, and if you play from the blues be a little humble and move up to the whites. Enjoy the terrific views from some of the elevated tees.

Good mostly wide open course.

Greens are getting better and rolled pretty true, but still show signs of aeration several weeks ago. Still too many unexplained wet spots. Played with 3 regulars and had a very good day!

Starters has no clue

Starter was plain bad. The only thing that saved this outing was respectful playing partners. Staff needs tons of work. Updated carts but seems like another overpriced golf course trying to make up for unqualified staff. A shame and waste of good layout.

Love this course.

I have been planing SJH nearly every week for over a year. I joined the club and get a slight break on the cost, but there is no "senior" rate available. The course is well maintained, but sometimes those who maintain it are not very sensitive to the fact that people are waiting to play. A couple of times we have had to hit while dodging sprinklers. The clubhouse staff is excellent and food it good, though sometimes the servers could be a bit more with it. All-in-all this is a beautiful course nestled in the hills of San Juan Capistrano and I would recommend it for players of all levels.

Good mostly wide open course.

Had a good day on the course, but surprised that the greens were not better after punching several weeks ago. Fairways were pretty good but did have some unexpected wet areas. Slow foursome ahead of us made us finish about 1/2 later than acceptable round. Off course amenities and a friendly accommodating staff are real assets for this course. Will be back.

Poorly maintained

If you enjoy rock hard fairways, dead grass and bumpy greens this place is for you. Not to mention 5+ hours to play. This was on a Monday no less! Beautiful pro shop, clubhouse, restaurant and golf carts but the course condition in equal to Shorecliffs in San Clemente while charging $50+ a round.

Good mostly wide open course.

Very nice day of golf. . .with the exception of the aerifide greens, which I knew about when I reserved on-line; and is known to be a necessity to keep a course's greens in good condition. I played a couple of weeks ago and the greens were the best I have ever witnessed here and hope in a few weeks they will be back in that shape once again.

bad news

Aeration alert would've been nice from GN, nothing on the booking site, had to play the back 9 twice, very slow play...greens were unputtable....bad day all around, not worth the $30 green fee.

Pretty much wide open with challenging greens.

The course was in the best shape that I have seen it in years if not ever. Well grassed fairways and fast sloped greens.
