By far the highest quality greens you'll find on any public golf course in Orange County. That alone makes this course a great value. Elevated approaches and tees make for fun and rewarding golf shots but one can see this would be a challange to high handicappers. You can't spray the ball all over the place like you can at most public tracks. Cheapest beer in town and a staff that really seems to appreciate the customers.

Played it twice before the GPS, however I don't think GPS can fix what's wrong with this course. The greens and tee boxes are all elavated due to the fact that this course is built out of a old river duct. Course is made annoyingly difficult and it'll frustrate you to not want to play there again. The 2nd (and last) time I played there we almost got into a fist fight with the grounds-keeper because our beginner playing partner didn't fully know the rules of golf. Plus he kept hitting his ball into us. You'll have to pay me to play there.
