Had absolutely nothing to do today 10/25 and looked for a place to play. Pretty windy out in Orange and Riverside Counties so went inland a bit. Decided on Westridge since it has been a long time since I have played here. Have heard so many stories about this course closing but wanted to give it a go. On a warm afternoon (actually it was freaking hot) drove up around 10:00 am and got right out. Customer service was great . The starter Mario, sent me right out to the tee as a single and ahead of a women’s group.
I was surprised with the overall conditions. Tee boxes were a bit chewed up but were level. Fairways had issues. The kikuyu had not fully grown in for some reason. A lot of bare spots. Sand traps were in great condition. I saw on many of the holes, maintenance was working on the sand traps. Clearly, they did a great job.
Greens were in very nice condition. Not real slow or fast, about medium speed but rolled true. Forgot about the undulations on some of the greens. Tough to read. But it was nice to see very few unrepaired ball marks
As the previous reviewer indicated, it appears the course is going through a transition period but for the positive. It’s in much better condition than the last time I was here. I was going to head up to the restaurant to have a beer but the starter said it was closed for now. He mentioned that they hope to open the restaurant sometime in the future. Looks like improvements are pending here. Good to hear as I enjoy the layout. Let’s give it some time and see how it works out. I am not giving up on Westridge.
