If this course was good enough for several tours to play here, then I guess it is good enough for me. Many challenging holes. Not an easy course. Wind can be a factor.,,,might add several strokes to your score card. Either way, enjoy your round here. You'll love it!

Best Value Course ever with Red Dot Discount (2 for 1) on Thursday. Due to the slow economy, the maintenance could be better; lotta dry spots.

Like other Arnie designed courses, it looks easy but plays hard. you rather hit straight and short than long and stray. often you gotta forget about your ball if you spray left and right. If you or your buddy has 20+ handy, please go somewhere else. You will be frustrated. NO FORGIVENESS!!!!

I even got to see Kevin Na practicing on and off the course throughout the day.

Public course that is maintained as if it were a private country club. Very difficult as the layout is very narrow and not a lot of room for mistakes. Easy to hit the ball off the fairway as it is kept in terrific shape. I agree with the other comments that the pace of play is extremely slow. They have to get the Marshall out there and move things along. Overall, very nice course.

Fun course, but a lttle slow. Had good time anyway. Fairways and greens well maintained. Decent value.

My friend and I played the course on a Friday, and it took us 5 hours to finish just 14 holes (skipped a couple holes because it was so slow). The marshalls were not helpful at all. Paid $55 each, but i would rather spend $20 more to play at a semi-private course instead. There are a couple of nice looking holes with water around the greens at the start. However, it is all downhill after that. Expect a boring back 9 except No# 18.

Arnold, you did it again. Great job! Have played this course many times, several times in a 4 man best ball off of the whites. If you have some guys that can bomb over 290, their are some holes that are within reach of an eagle....Hole #3... Just go for it!!! Great greens! Shot one of my lowest rounds from the blues so this course will always be one of my favorites.

Fairways and greens firm and tight - rough was a bit spotty but it is January. Pace of play was slow and tee-off time was some 20 minutes late. Construction activity on course boundaries over the last 5-6 years has turned a links-type course in the vineyards into condo golf - I guess that's progress. Snack bar area could use an upgrade, although with Ontario Mills just around the corner probably not much demand for items other than hot dogs, sandwiches, breakfast on the go or drinks.

Very tough course. If you play it when it is tour ready, you should bring many balls. Nearly everyshot is blind, lots of OB, rough, and desert. You do not have to hit the ball long here, but you must be very accurate.

Course was in great shape... Player early morning for 43 bucks. REALLY TUFF COURSE.. They were letting the ruff grow to 8 inches for up coming tour event. If your not always on the fairway, you might want to wait until after the tourney and they cut the grass again...

Played Aug 10, 2007. The course is perfect...A Nationwide Tour stop. This course is extremely difficult...your first time you play it will be tough...bring lots of balls - tights fairways, deep rough, water and blind shots! The second time is a little better. Twilight fees make this an excellent value. You need to play the course!

Difficult course, best couse I have played. Take extra balls, unless you are a scratch golfer you will need them (I did). Great value. Was worth the drive.

Wonderfully, frustrating, difficult course.

This is one of the most beautiful courses in the inland empire. There are lakes, waterfalls and, bunkers all over this course. They have a great grounds crew that maintains this course to perfection as far as I am concerned. Hell, the Nationwide Tour plays a tournament here,s o if it's good enough for them, it's great for my hacker (sometimes) ass.
