Industry Hills At Pacific Palms Conference Resort
This course is narrow
The course in general is nice, the staff is friendly, didn't try the food so can't comment on that. Have been wanting to try the course for a while, got a good deal on mid morning tee time, conclusion, I wouldn't pay the regular rate to play this course. In my opinion there are nicer courses in much better shape in the same price range or cheaper.

This was my first time at the Babe course. Played a morning round, and it was perfect weather. Course is in very good shape. Greens rolled true, rough is thick but not impossible to get out off.
We played two days after the Jimmy V ESPY charity tournament, and there's a City tournament coming up so they have the course in very good shape.

The gem that needs a little polish
The layout is excellent, with several blind shots throughout the course that challenge, but not to the point of being unfair. I noticed that the fairways and several areas around the greens looked firm but were very soft and wet (poor drainage especially on the front nine). The greens were average speed and bumpy (nobody fixes divots). This is a good shot makers course.

Pace of Play
Golfers need to check their egos and play at the appropriate tee boxes. Pace of play can be improved and EVERYONE gets to enjoy their golf outing.

Good bang for your buck
The Babe course is a nice track for amount of money charged for green fees...$49. The only complaint that I have is too many cart path only holes...maybe the reason is poor drainage on some hole. This will not stop me from playing at this golf course.
Would like to see the Ike course added to Golfnow.

Narrow Fairways and forced carry's made it a very challenging course but very worth it.
The Course condition a just perfect.

Bring your A game
Strong, tough golf course. Front side is very narrow. Greens are fairly large with big humps and slopes. Course was in excellent shape except for stupid golfers who don't replace their divots with the sand provided on their carts and don't fix their ball marks on the greens!! I would not suggest this course for a high handicapper, but for a decent to excellent golfer it is a super course. I played for $35 with a cart from golfnow and a great value for Southern Cal.

Pretty course but could use some oversight.
This was my first time trying this course, but with the deal from GolfNow it was worth giving it a try.
The course itself is beautiful and the pro shop staff are great.
However, during play I didn't see a single marshal or drink cart go by, which is problematic on a hot day or when other golfers are causing issues.
There are a lot of blind tee shots, and if you can't tee off 175+ yds in the air be sure to pick the red tee boxes, otherwise you're in for some problems.
Also a word of advice, they have the golf carts pretty hard wired to not allow speeds over what they want (11 mph) and if you enter within 20 yds of the putting green, you will get a warning and have your speed limited to 2 mph. This is great for protecting the course but annoying when you are 30 yds away (according to their own GPS) and still get hit with the limit and then have to take 2-3 minutes at a snail's pace to get back out of range.
Also, many of the holes are set for cart path only, so if you attempt to drive off it, you will be locked into "reverse only" mode to back up to the path. So if you are a very lazy golfer and don't like walking a bit, this may not be the course for you.
