I played Los Robles twice last week, Tuesday 10/3 mid day, and Saturday 10/7 at 10am. POP Tuesday was good at around 4 hours, Saturday was much slower at 5:10. I’m a walker, and it’s a moderately difficult course to walk.
The course is extremely green and in good shape right now. I played the Blacks, and all of the tee boxes are lush and have good coverage, but there are a couple that need re-leveling…#5 being the biggest offender. The fairways are in great shape…very lush and green and a joy to hit from. The rough around the greens is nice, and isn’t too penal. 1-3 inches long and lush. However, once you get off the fairway you’ll have a mixed bag of lies…splotchy rough, hardpan, or wood chips. The sand traps are all very good, with tons of heavy sand that can make them difficult to get out of if you dig too deep. The greens are in nice shape, running around 10 on the stimp and very undulating. They’re very green and roll pretty true, but they’re extremely soft…long irons into the par 5’s stopped like darts. For as soft as they are, they’re still pretty fast, especially down hill.
Service is always good in the proshop, and we saw the beverage cart many times on Saturday. I definitely recommend it right now. Now if they could only level that back tee box on #5…
