We had an 11:00 tee time on Tuesday, the 15th. We were told to start on the back....which is hole #9. There were 2 of us. We went to the tee. There was no starter. It was about 11 and there was no-one on the tee. We waited for the twosome out on the course to clear and then we... More

This use to be a lovely course. Water is a problem, but that shouldn't effect the upkeep. Bad cart paths, bad tee boxes at least the women's, you walk a block for carts and then you walk a block to get to the restrooms. It was difficult to figure out the holes as they didn't match the card. Most of... More

Way overpriced if you pay rack. Good value if you have a GROUPON, $70 for two was a fair price. The course has been reconfigured so your GPS is pointless. Scorecards don't have course layout so each hole is a guess leaving a lot of holes to be played blind, you are a cranky local who knows the course. The... More

Went to see Gregg Allman. Great place for a concert. People very friendly, parking was good. Just have patience getting out. Seats were great. Will go again

My wife and I played this course for the first time and were disappointed. I know there is a serious drought going on but the fairways were not in good shape, bare patches showing. For first timers there is confusing transition from one green to the next tee box and the scorecard is no help. The condition of greens was... More

My wife and I played this course for the first time and were disappointed. The main problem is the layout!! For first timers there is confusing transition from one green to the next tee box and there are a number of holes where second and approach shots are blind. On one dogleg par four there was a line of mature... More

Good resort course. Lots of shots over water and blind shots into slick fast greens. Challenging and enjoyable but pace of play is slow. Course was in good shape and provided scenic views.

Booked a 11:20 tee time off their website saved 40.00, the course is in great shape. The greens Are firm and fast for being so close to the ocean. Some holes are very challenging, Ran into a group of 6, never see this in So Cal. They did let us play through but there is areas that seemed to back... More

The stage is in the wrong location. Requiring the audience to look into the setting sun....not a good plan! The audience needs to stock up on sinscreen and shade.....this is an event where the audience is in the sun for 4/5 hours. The food vendors were excellent. The music was okay but the sound system inadequate for the large crowd... More
