I really enjoy this course. The lay out is fun. For the price it’s in really good shape.

Played the course for the first time Sunday June 17th. I am about a 15 handicap. Played with a fellow that knew the course which was a huge help. White tees--- so leave the driver alone. Nice course and fun. The penalties will be from off the tee. I enjoyed the course and felt it was more than fair..Price was good on Sunday at 10:00..Would like to play it several more times. Best example of links course in the area. 4 Stars

I played this course for the first time today and really enjoyed it. Unlike a lot of courses that claim to be styled after Scottish links courses, this one actually does a very good job of it. Like a true links course you have a lot of options: fligh it high, bump & run approaches, etc. The undulating fairways are also very reminiscent of the real thing. If you've never played here before it's best to play with someone who has because without some local knowledge you'll be faced with some blind tee shots and no idea which way to go, as well as some strategically-placed burns that will make you think.

Course conditions were generally very good and while the greens can be a bit tricky at times they're also very fair. I will definitely play this course again, and particularly at the surprisingly low green fees they charge.

The Links at Summerly is a links style golf course with many hazards that the golfer can't see. You need to play this course a couple times to get your bearings. The staff and clubhouse areas are great. The practice facilities are second to none for the area. I even understand they have a golf school that offers commuter and stay, learn and play golf schools there.

We showed up 20 minutes before our tee time at 11:30. I had a GREAT steak sandwich and a good cold beer. The staff was friendly. Hole one was the only hole we got though without a wait. It was a Saturday round which I usually do not do because of the slow play. The round took over 6 hours…and we were a group of two. The marshal stopped and told us that they had a small tournament of hackers in front of us. He was also discussed but felt they were already on the 17th and 18th hole so at this time he would not make an issues out of it. This he told us on the 16th hole and never offered us anything like a free beer, a credit for the snack stand and/or a free replay which I have had on occasion when play was tediously slow. The course seemed dry in most areas and was void of character. It was just OK. I may play it again in a few years but would love to see more green fairways which would be a good contrast against the white sand wash outs and sand traps reminiscent of European golf courses. With its location in Lake Elsinore and the amount of surrounding vacant land one would think a bit more distance between holes would be nice too for the aesthetics and the occasional “FORE“ as you heard an arrant drive zinged past your head from a typical Saturday want-to-be crusher. The property is bordered to the East by some kind of boat race stadium. We heard the sounds of EXTREEMELY LOUD top fuel race boats and the loud speaker typical of that type of event during the entire round in our back swings and puts. I would guess this is NOT common on a daily basis…Just a weekend or special event being held on the water next to the golf course. The course was lost between the by dry sand, dry air and local hills which were all the same color. It was definitely not a golf Oasis in the middle of Lake Elsinore.

This is a course that requires the golfer to think about the golf shots rather that pounding a driver down the fairway. Yes the burns are there and both the GPS and the red markers are there to warn you. Sumerly is a links-style course and all the natural areas (ie: marshes, natural grasses, stone bridges and wildlife) add to the charm of this course. If you want all grass and attached fairways, Sumerly might disapoint you. If you want to experience the challenge of a links-style course, this course is one of the best kept secrets in Riverside County. The course is one year old and will only get better. I appreciate the friendly and competent service from everyone.

Great idea for a course but what a horrible way to do it. I absolutely hated this course! There are these creek ditches that run all over this course and located in the worst possible places. Of course you can't see them until you walk up to them and low and behold there sits your ball in the bottom. It's one thing to have hazzards but you need to be aware of them. They should not be hidden like some score ruining boobie trap. Also 50% of the corse is a sand trap. The grass was crap or non existent. Save your money and find another course.

Well this is a great idea, but it needs some work. First the green fee is a bargain and thats a good thing cause the golf course location couldnt be worse, its hot or windy maybe both and next to the lake very humid. The idea of a links course is good this place has far to many dry ditches sorry I mean burns in front of greens, a player cant run the ball up on the green with all these burns. Next the fairways and greens are fine but the rest of the property needs some green its ugly just dirt, straw and construction waste. Last bring your lunch
the food and beverage director should be fired , the drink cart has foul old beer bad sandwiches the snack bar
is never open and the bar stops serving food at 3pm??? So to recap the idea is good the course is ok the area sucks and its managed poorly give it a try the price is right but dont expect miracles.

This is a great course and a great value. It was dry, and obviously new, but as it ages, and when it gets some water, it will be a gem.
