Teed it up with fellow GK Review Gurus on Monday 2/27. What a great time. Even on a cloudy cold day. The course was in excellent condition. The best I’ve seen it years. So lush and green. They had lightly verticut that morning and with a dusting of sand which made the putting surfaces even smoother and faster. Fairways groomed and lush. Rough groomed, 1-2 inches and lush. Bunkers groomed with quality sand. Tee boxes cut tight, lush and groomed.

We played the Creekside to Ridgeline combo which provided a formidable challenge to say the least. I still say that hole #4 on the Creekside nine, beast par 4 requiring a long carry off the tee to clear the gorge to a small fairway and then an awkward long uphill forced carry to a tight green complex, is the most difficult par 4 in all of Ventura County, and right up there in all of Southern California. My favorite combo is Canyon Crest to Creekside. The layout at Moorpark CC is spectacular in my mind. Views, elevation changes, doglegs, large variety of holes, no let downs, super challenging, well-guarded green complexes yet fair.

The clubhouse, service and amenities are all top notch staying true to the golf course’s “Country Club” name yet delivering that level of experience to the public. Moorpark CC is a must play. Thanks everyone that joined me. Let’s get out there again soon!

Played 2/27 with the GK Gurus.

The course was in fantastic shape.

Tee boxes were lush and very level.

Fairways were green and provided great lies throughout. It was a little soggy in places but after all the rain we’ve received it was still very playable.

Greens had just been rolled and lightly sanded. They were FAST and true. Green could be challenging to read with their placements near cliffs and barrancas. They were fun to putt on.

I didn’t find any bunkers on the day.

This course was fun to play. It’s certainly a lot different than a lot of the parkland courses I normally play. It was definitely a challenge. While it was tough it was a fun day that required a lot of thought and I really enjoyed the round. Definitely recommend playing this course if you’re in the area and looking for something challenging and in great shape.

I played with the GK group on Monday. It was a great day for golf. I can’t really add much to what Mitch and Kevin have said. The course is in wonderful shape. The fairways were still a bit soggy in several areas. Once the course thoroughly dries out, and we’ve had some sun for a little while, this course will only get greener and more lush. A definite must play!
