played this course with my old golf club The Bar Stewards and we were very disappointed. We've played a lot of the courses in Corona as you generally get good value and it's close to where many of the members live. I was very excited to play a Nicklaus design as I enjoy his short par fours and layouts in general. The course is "crammed" into a canyon and maybe just maybe this wasn't the right place to build a golf course and certainly Mr. Nicklaus you could see that. I struggle to believe that a you think this is worthy of your name and b that you really needed the check that badly. Fairways were in terrible condition - bare parts all over, huge chunks of grass re-layed all over most of them. As for design I don't mind and quite like the odd unlevel lie - uphill, downhill and sidehills BUT on every shot?. I should have noticed on the first hole a par 5 when you really can't hit more than a 5 iron off the tee...silly. There's many better places to play within 10 miles of this one. For $80+ there's better value too.

Immaculate difficult course, narrow, hilly, undulating greens. Must carry brush many holes, monstrous bunkers protecting good fairway shots and nearly every green. Favors the target golfer. A must play for scratch golfers. The faint of heart need not torture themselves. That said its rural beauty may be worth the price and frustration if you are so inclined.

Great golf course. I maintain that if you play here, regularly you will improve your game. Tough from the tips, lots of long carries. Tough lies on fairways and uphill to narrow greens, which held nicely. A few holes were a big more "target" than I like, and the fairways were dry the second time I played here, but overall a beautiful, well maintained course that will challenge even the low handicap. Those that spray, beware, you will lose alot of golf balls.

Playing from the blacks, I had a 1 under at the 7th hole but ended up with a 5 over by the 9th hole. At the end of the round I ended up with a 93. Front 9 is where you need to score because you really need all the birdies to sustain a hard back 9. I enjoyed playing the course. Played it three times after my first one. Would I play it again? Yes! Would I enjoy it again? Most likely not!

Need to try it at less once. In that area, there are better courses. Try Eagle Glen!

Played it for the first time this week. The starter sent me out as a single to catch the twosome ahead of me and I almost took a wrong turn on the first hole. The course is immaculate with attention to detail. How often have you found the inside of the cups sprayed white? But it has some really contrived holes. And I missed the 11-13 stretch because the member I played with took a short cut around some slow players. After awhile you really tire of the immense bunkers everywhere. But I never tired of the roller coaster greens.

But my biggest beef is with the closing holes on each nine. You have to lay the blame at Jack Nicklaus' feet. Both 9 and 18 are boring uphill slogs. Why didn't someone insist on putting the clubhouse at a lower elevation, and provide some majesty to the finish. What a huge letdown. I will go back---but infrequently
