Brown

Course is as dry and brown as I’ve ever seen it in 30 years of playing it. It’s still very fun to play. What’s weird is that the greens are soft and slow.

Nice course. A little bothersome with the freeway noise. Course was a little challenging for a beginner like me but it was fun. Will play again

One of my favorite places to play

I always book a 630 tee time during the week and the course is always in fabulous condition, and I don't have to worry about pace of play.Staff is very friendly and the course has some unique holes. A fun place to play and work on your game

Excellent City Course

I've been playing this course for many years. The layout is excellent, conditioning excellent, designed by the great designer Bruce Mathews. The pace of play was pretty slow and I didn't see a marshal on the course.

Surprise

For a public course that gets an extreme high level of play, I was very surprised about the excellent conditions. The course is short and flat, but still has its challenges requiring good shots.

The greens are usually on the fast side, today they were soft and slow. Different.

Best of the Season.

My wife and I played for $14.00 ea. + convenience fee of $6.98. The course was in the best shape of the season. It wasn't to crowded and pace of play was good. Usually, it is at least a 5 -51/2 hour round but, today it was 4 hours! For the price I would play this course everyday

Nice course

Course is always kept up well. The rough a bit too much, but I attribute that to all the rain. Nice all around course.

Underrated course is a great track to play

For the recent weather conditions I was surprised at how well manicured the course was and how fast the greens were.. always a fun course to play.

Fun Course

Ignoring the wet conditions that every course had to endure, this layout forces you to be club conscious as fairways end 3 Wood and force you to carry to 270 to the next one. Just enough creeks, fairway bunkers and greenside bunkers, but large enough greens to compensate. Greens were solid! I would love to see how this course plays out when dry/prime summer. Tee-off Ranger was very friendly and I will assuredly return to this course. They have a cart girl on Sundays in April! First one so far this year I've had. She is very pleasant. Also they have "Player Assistance" crew acting as part light maintenance and rules gurus. Great idea! And they're not out there to harass golfers. Just an added bonus.
