I played Moorpark on a beautiful Monday morning, teeing off at about 11am with respected gk gurus Nickesquire, MrKich, and mdames, I had played two of the nines before, so I knew what I was getting into.
The layout is very good, with ribbons of golf course winding through the beautiful, natural terrain. There are constant elevation changes, with many holes that play downhill, and many long cart rides up to elevated tees with magnificent views.
From the tee, landing areas are fair, but not generous. Errant tee shots result in balls lost in the ever-present lateral hazards which line virtually all the fairways on both sides. Lay-ups and approach shots can also find the hazards, and there are also a couple shots which need to carry over canyons.
I found myself often commenting on the beauty of many holes as I stood on the tee. The variety of length and personality of so many of the holes is astounding. Thank goodness all 27 holes have survived the trials and tribulations in the golf industry the last few years.
Course conditions were stellar across the board. Good coverage in the fairways, Thick, deep rough around the greens. Plenty of well-maintained sand in the bunkers. The greens were smooth and ran at a comfortable, medium speed, and were tricky for me to read.
Pace of play was great, and would have been better if we wouldn’t have spent so much time looking for my wild shots. I could see the difficulty of the course adding time to rounds if the course got really busy, though.
Customer service was polite and professional at every turn. The golf related personnel were friendly and helpful. I also ate supper in the restaurant. The food and service were very good, and the beer selection was ample and cold.
Thanks, again, to Johnny and the staff at Moorpark for making it happen. You”re the greatest!

Played MPCC on 6/5 with fellow GKers Nicksquire, Mrkich, and Stickboy. It was a very enjoyable day of golf. I can’t add much to Nick’s elaborate review. The course is in very good shape from tee to green. The only thing I would add is that the greens, though rolling well, were a little slower than I’m used to at this course. With the current conditions and the incredible views on nearly every hole of this course, I HIGHLY recommend getting out here and playing 18, or 27 if you have the time.

Played the Blues on all three 9’s with GK Gurus stickboy, MrKich & mdames. Really easy going and enjoyable group to play with. Thanks to Vince, Matt & Mike for a nice day and to Moorpark CC for having us out!

The course was not real busy, we let one single play through and played 27 holes in slightly less than 7H total. The weather was nice, bright, sunny, in the 80’s with little wind most of the day.

The tees were mostly level & lush with few unfixed divots.

The fairways were mostly lush with a few browned out spots. Nice to play from.

The rough was thick and lush. Tough to get good club on the ball.

The green side traps were well maintained with nice sand. The fairway bunkers were firmer and less maintained.

The greens rolled nice, medium speed, firm but still held approach shots well.

Nice restaurant onsite, Vince, Matt & I stayed afterward and had burgers. Mine was very good. The customer service was excellent from everyone encountered. We saw the cart person once early in the day making the rounds, a rarity on a weekday morning.

Moorpark can be a really challenging track. Most holes have hazards down one or both sides. Many holes have elevation changes and forced carries over hazards, this is not a course for beginners. All 3 nines are VERY unforgiving on crooked shots, you can accumulate penalty shots in bunches here if you are more than about 10 yards left or right of almost any fairway. One of the few semi private courses in Ventura County. If you want to be challenged, this is a picturesque layout up/down rolling hills that is usually not super crowded. Definitely recommended.
