This course is lush!

It reminds me of courses out in the Mid-West where grass thrives in the spring and summer. The Velcro like grass in So. Cal. makes it tougher to play out of and judge predictability of outcome with short game compared to courses in the Mid-West.

For 80 miles from my house, it was worth the drive.

The layout is fabulous and non-repetitive. Just about every hole requires thought and strategy. On some par 4’s it is absolutely essential to be in the fairway. (5, 12, 15, and par 5 18th) The greens were a bit slow but that will change heading into summer. Any hole going uphill goes uphill more than you think. (2, 6, 7, 12, 15, and 18)

This is a course you can play over and over and never grow tired of it. I wish it was 8 miles and not 80.  Recommended.
