Ricki for the last 18 holes and played with 3 nice older gentleman the first 9 holes. Lots of people out at Buena today–ventura is cooler, Olivas is punching and it was their all day twilight rate today at Buena. Great staff(Vicki) in the pro-shop. No range here to warm up just cages. Nice big putting green.

The greens were rolling fairly smooth, soft and I thought slow. They were in great shape holding mostly all shots like darts. The greens here are big and undulating and fun to putt on. They can get creative here with pin placements in tucked spots. Green rating 7/10.

The fairways at Buena are in great shape. Padded lush lies–hardly any problem areas. Super should be commended. Rating 8/10–closer to an 8.5.

Tees in very good shape–you could even say some were too lush. Mostly level. They have brand new black tees on 12, 13 and 15. Number 13 is now for sure the toughest hole on the back nine with the tee pushed back some 45 yds–great fun par 4 now into the breeze.

The rough was green, lush and in good shape. Rated 7.5/10

Was not in any bunkers but Buena like Olivas always has nice thicker sand raked beach type of bunkers.

Overall Buena fit the bill for a quick round. Course is in real good shape–take advantage of their Monday twilight rates but get an early tee time if you do–recommended.
