Played here today, 2/28 at 12:19pm via a deal on their web-site for $43.00. Was paired with a friendly twosome for an enjoyable sunny afternoon.
Only issue was intermittent waiting, mostly on the front nine. According to the friendly marshal, it was a 4-some 2 groups ahead. He came by several times, and did say he ‘encouraged’ them to speed it up. POP ended up being 4hrs 40mins, with the back nine slightly faster than the front. A few extra holes were ‘cart path only’, so that may have contributed.
Since I last played here 10 days ago, the teebox conditions have dipped. Still, flat and easy to find a level stance, but they have browned up a bit and some of the grass has been washed out by the rain. Probably need a re-seeding on some. 6/10
Rough was a bit splotchy/hairy in most places I ventured, making for some challenging uneven lies/swing-paths with tufts causing me some problems. 5/10
Sand was great, sadly I had about 4 of them today. Medium-weight 1/2″ top layer/fluff over a slightly damp base (sorry, sounds like a ski-slope report). 7/10
Fairways were lush and green. Not a lot of roll for my slow swing, mud on ball about 1/3 of the time. 8/10
Greens were firm, but held shots well. The putting was true, smooth-rolling, and fast today. Lots of break after the ball lost speed. The pull towards Disneyland was in full operation today. Happy with my 32 putts. 9/10
Cart lady was by 3 times, very friendly. Pro-shop staff, starter and cart-return guys very friendly. My favourite place to play right now, and a very good value.
