Golf Course Review Links at Summerly Lake Elsinore California

I checked the weather when I woke at 4am and the forecast was 20-30 mph winds with gusts to 40+. I was going to bail, but decided to drive out and play anyway. To my surprise, the winds weren’t that bad, maybe 15 mph.

Michael in the pro shop was fantastic. He welcomed us and made us feel he really appreciated our patronage. He talked about the recent improvements and the plan they have to further improve the course and make it a positive customer experience. You could tell this guy actually cares !

While there are still many issues with conditioning, I could see a big improvement from the last time I played here. Lots of new sod has been placed on several fairways. Still many areas which need attention, but the effort is apparent. Rough: what rough ! Once off the fairway, it is just hard pan/dirt. Many of the bunkers are just terrible, some reflect they are trying! The greens were the most frustrating. They really need to be rolled, as the ball kind of “wiggles” its way towards the hole, does not keep its line at all. Speed was inconsistent.

I have never been a huge fan of links courses, but I enjoy the change. I can see the potential. I just hope they follow through and continue to improve the course, because it is so different from what I normally play, and could be a fun track once they achieve their goal. I applaud their efforts and enthusiasm. Thank you Michael for being just a great host !
