Good staff and layout

I enjoyed my round with friendly playing partners abs young man in the pro shop was very accommodating. Good pace and nice course. I heard it has been around since the 70s.

Can't go wrong

This is a very nice course. It's always a pleasure to golf here. Great chipping area. Never crowded. Greens and fairways are better than most. What's not to like? Thank you for allowing a limited number of non- members to play here as your guest.

Still a bit of rain in the air but fun round

Love this hidden gem of a course. They don't offer tee times to the general public very often but when they do it is worth it. Pace of play is always amazing as course is never over booked. course was a bit soggy from the previous days heavy rain and we got a little sprinkling during the back 9 but not to bad. course conditions were great and the greens were running pretty quick considering.

Well Worth It.

This is a private course. Allowing the public a few tee times is a great concept. I really like this course. It has a great chipping area. Something that other courses lack. The Tee box and fairways are in very good condition. The greens require a little more work. Not due to lack of care but more to fight off patches grass diseases. Not all greens are like this, just a few. Overall, this is a great course worthy of my return.

My 1000th Round of Golf

Today, November 13, 2019 I played my 1,000th round of golf. My 1st round was on October 29, 1993 at the Mountain View Golf Course (now closed). This picture is with my golf buddies who I played many round with (but not all 1,000)

Nice course

Course was nice. Looks like they had punched the greens about 2-3 weeks prior so they were running pretty quick. Fairways were nice and green. Range is short though, only about 220 yards.

Great Day!

Great pace of play, Never had to wait. Finished in about 3 hours.

Course in good condition, except one hole (7) which is under some construction.

Fun day at Candlewood.

Pleasant Surprise

Not as picturesque as Coure d’Alene or Pebble Beach, but in just as good of shape! Playing in Southern California, I’ve gotten used to some really bare fairways and rough so tall I have trouble finding my ball. But today was a delight.
And though I’m not a member, I really liked the way I was treated by everyone I came in contact with, especially Brandon (please Lord, let me have remembered that right!) in the pro shop, even if he did have trouble finding my GNow res.

First timer

Layout was challenging. Don’t let the lack of length fool you. Greens were in great shape. Rolled true and fast. Held on iron shots. Fairways were a bit thick. Didn’t see them being cut till i was on the 15th hole.
