Golf Course Review Black Gold Golf Club Yorba Linda California
Reviewed by: leef2020, Huntington Beach, CA
Played Monday, 11/5, teeing off a few minutes after noon with Larryq2001 and was paired with friendly GKer Dubwiser. We finished a bit over 4 hours, with a few short waits on a lovely day. They played the blues and I teed off from the white tees.
White tees were level and in pretty good shape for this time of year. As previously mentioned, a few tee areas are closed and in process of growing new grass. Fairways were overly watered in spots – where I landed my shots, of course – and often got no/little roll-out, which made the course that much more demanding and adding yards to 2nd shots. Was able to draw casual water in my stance 3 times, including once on a strong slope! The course was green enough – it’s November – stop with the over-watering!!!
While I was fortunate to avoid any bunkers, was in the rough too many times, and found it diabolical and grabby.
Greens looked fantastic, dark green, held shots fairly well and provided mostly smooth putting. Excepting a few pin placements located directly on slopes, they putted medium-slow, however, and found it a challenge to get long putts anywhere near the holes.
Cart lady came by a few times and saw a friendly marshal twice. Definitely recommend playing here, just wish they would let the course dry out a little bit!
