I really like this course and hope I’m not being overly picky due to the anticipation of thinking the course was in great shape and finding it dry and hard with slow bumpy greens. maybe they just hadn’t watered since last week?
. . . and I will throw out the disclaimer that I played pretty well, especially playing from the Blues and won my GK Cup match so these aren’t just sour grapes, just disappointed ones.I still strongly recommend this course as a great place to play, usually an all around great golf experience from the clubhouse to the warm-up areas, course, customer service, etc. Just look for a deal and don’t expect resort conditions.

I have to echo Jim’s comments on the Golf Club of California – the entire course could use more water! After seeing the Guru reviews last week we were expecting better, although amicable Harvey in the shop told us they had slowed the greens down a little after the Member tourney. It was still difficult to get used to putts slowing down on downhill slopes to the southwest!, and a lot of putts were left short yesterday. Almost all lies were tight, and with the recent fairway/rough aeration you could easily get a lie in an unfilled punch hole.
Positives – greens were in good shape, although we did see scattered thin/bare areas. Most greens held shots, but green firmness and speeds were inconsistent through the round. Sand was in good shape, although I found a crusty surface layer in the fairway bunker on #17 that broke up into thumb-sized chunks when raked. Tees were level and sand was available to fill divots on par-3s.
Driving range is well away from the clubhouse but has an accurate clock – nice! Range is on grass and a practice bunker is available, but balls looked discolored and older. No GPS, but a yardage book is available, and many sprinkler heads are marked. Carts have a daily pin sheet – also nice (but hole #1 was inaccurate).
Still recommended for layout and challenge.
