We made a 4 hour trip to this course specifically because they have Golf Boards. When we made our reservation we reserved the Golf Boards and was told there would be no problem. However when we showed up, we found out that they only have...More

Although our scores were disappoining we had a great time on this intersting course. The layout involves lots of rolling hillsides, blind shots, strategically placed bunkers and greens with lots of undulation. It is in excellent condition despite the drought, a few bare sports but...More

Played here for the first time after the holiday. Pros: uncrowded, beautiful views, wildlife sightings, tough greens, friendly staff, fair prices Cons: poor signage along the course and horrible cart paths! They need to pave or gravel the paths so it's not like a horse...More

This is one tough course. Golfers with high handicaps...be warned. The undulating fairways, deep and treacherous bunkers (one looked like a bomb crater) uneven greens and water hazards make this one of the most challenging courses I've played...mostly in Los Angeles area. Still, it's a...More

great holes, terrific views, extremely difficult. Rough is rough, lots of ways to lose balls. Negative, not real good direction to next tee-box, no carts paths so you get beat up big time driving a cart. course not really walkable.
