Played today using my handy dandy GK Coupon for Santa Anita. Tee off after 1:30PM. Finished around 4:30PM with loads of light to spare and before the twilight crowd. Caught the late morning groups after 7 holes.

Greens in pretty decent shape; very receptive. They rolled well with medium/slow speed. Green complexes have that sticky kikuya grass so mind your release. Fairways may look a little yellow-ish but there was sufficient cushion underneath — No thin lies here. Rough is a mix of thin to thick to bare but it’s rough so stay away. Bunkers had compact sand. Difficult to get my club underneath but after a few shots in the bunkers you always figure a way of of those hazards.

Pace of play was brisk. Started as a single, ended up as a 5-some as the groups behind kept coming.

This was first visit here. Heard a lot of positive things about this course so I wanted to check it out for myself. Love the layout. It’s fun, challenging and conditions I was say as pretty good for this time of year. Not bad for you folks in the San Gabriel valley. Play here again? You betcha! Recommended.
