Even though the fairways are lined with homes, they distance them far enough to be not too obtrusive. The problem with this course is that the play is the slowest I've ever experienced. After three rounds, one on a week-end (5.5 hours) and two mid-morning week days (5.5 hours and 5.75 hours), I've become exasperated enough to never play there again. The Rangers are a bunch of old codgers who I don't think know what a Ranger is supposed to do. During one round where the first 9 holes took 2 hours and 45 minutes I asked a Ranger what the problem is ahead. His response, "what problem", it's just playing slow. Most of the Rangers just fly by on their carts. The worst part is that the slow play is not due to busy golf days, it's simply slow play that the Rangers do nothing about. Yesterday was the 5.75 hour day. I finally was able to flag down a Ranger on the 12th hole and told him we were on our way to a record 6 hour round. I asked him what was in front beside the two twosomes in front of us. He said "nobody, it's clear after that" then simply drove away. I asked the starter on the way out if it is normal to have 5.5 hour rounds here. He told me it was not unusual. Anyway, its not a big loss, there are alot of better alternatives out here such as Calippe Preserve and Wente golf club.

I played here today because they offer a free round of golf on your b-day. I researched this course on the internet and thought it would be nice. This course is amazing!! I don't know about other times during the year, this was my first time here today. The course is beautifully maintained and manicured. I knew from the rating/slope this course would be tough. I wasn't dissapointed. So far the toughest public course I've played in California. Views were great, the course was fantastic, tee to green, and the weather was nice. The ocean marine layer never burned off and it was chilly but still very pleasant. If I lived in the area I would play here all the time. The club house, Proshop, restaurant and all the staff were great. The food is very good. Bathrooms are clean and high class. I can only think of one thing I would improve and that was the greens were too slow for my taste. The grass was a bit heavy with water and the ball didn't roll as expected for such tight greens. I was always coming up too short of the cup. Since the Sun never came out Today the greens never improved. I saw some people walking, but I don't recommend that. This is a very hilly course and golf cart is recommended. If you like a challenging game and fantastic conditions play here. Worth every dollar.

Beautiful scenery. Driving range is far far away from 1st tee and no system to alert players. We watched the clock and got off on-time.

The course is hard. Maybe Johnny Miller would enjoy it, but you won't. Fairways are as narrow as any you will ever play, there is death on 2 sides of every green, and they are severely sloped. Do not play here unless you have some serious game and can get off the tee 200 yards on the fly from the White Tees(which I can btw - shot 89 to a 15). The tees themselves are chewed up, as are the greens.

Do yourself a favor and go few miles South on 680 to Callippe Preserve. Much more interesting track and every bit as pretty.

Kind of a "home course" for me... This is really what golf is all about. VERY tough course that is in pristine condition. If things are slow ahead of you, just ask to play through. Usually not very busy as it is both a tough course and not cheap at all. Carts stay on paths, so it is a bit slower. This is not a course to rush through. Relax and enjoy the course because if you don't your score will get beaten up by the design. Afternoon winds add to the fun, as does the fog on some days.

To everyone who tries to rush through a round - try to chill a bit. If you want to be uptight, go to work.

I've played this course twice now and have fully enjoyed each round. The course is difficult but not unmanageable. You have to think your way around this course. The course conditions were excellent both times I played. The course does play slower (5hr) because you have to think and be accurate but that is the challenge. I find it refreshing that I'm not being rushed constantly by rangers & players trying to get around in record time. If you want under 5hr rounds pick another course or maybe another sport.

very hard course to play if your handicap is above 12 index.

This course does not seem to be played very often, reason being could be the slope, 140 from 5900 yards. I think Johnny Miller forgot he was designing this course for non professional golfers.

Today green was too slow. I don't what happened but totally different from my previous rounds. Unless you have constant driver shots, it would be very difficult to manage your games here.

This course is too difficult and tricked up to be enjoyable.
