Played Black Gold Tuesday, 10/31 using a voucher that I won in a silent auction at a golf tournament. The voucher indicated that we each had to pay for the $15 cart fee. Sergio, the person who checked us in however, waived the cart fee which was very classy! Thank you! Black Gold staff is always classy. Everyone there is first cabin including the club house, starter on the first tee and in the restaurant.
Got out right on time at 9:28 and finished in about 4:30. No one was ahead of us so the slower than usual play was on us. We did spray a few shots in the weeds and spent some time looking for balls but one guy in our group is pretty slow. No one waited on us but we need to pick it up.
The course is in great shape. Fairways are lush, rough is not thick at all. Bunkers are in great shape, at least the ones I was in.
Greens still had some light sand on them. As Lee, the previous reviewer indicated, they still need some time to heal. They rolled nicely but I expected them to be a bit faster than they were. I would give it about 2 weeks and they should be perfect. Greens have always been good here.
Black Gold is always a nice place to play. I find the back 9 far more challenging as the fairways get a bit more tight. The price tag is Orange County steep but now and then you can get a good rate on their website. Definitely recommend however. Go Play!
