Steel Canyon Golf Club
Cart won't work…foot-golf anyone?
Being a peak time on the first nice Saturday in a few weeks, we expected slow play. We did not expect most of the delays to be due to the foot golfers that were playing alongside, across and over us. Never played foot golf, but evidently the game does not observe the same etiquette as golf.
We also expected some less than ideal course conditions as well. It's early February, we get it. What we did not expect were uneven tee boxes with no grass and half empty hard-packed bunkers.
And then there were the greens. Hole placement was ludicrous. On seven different occasions we rolled puts to less than 1" close to the hole - only to see them momentarily pause and then and roll back two or three feet.
And to top off the experience, one of our carts died. An experience two others in my group had here before. Good thing we were close to the clubhouse (9th tee) because our repeated attempts to contact them by phone went unanswered.
Simply amazed that this course has had so many positive reviews.

Glad I played for $17
Who ever decided to add the soccer golf is killing this place. Honestly If I had payed the full $27 fee I would have asked for a refund.
Good luck finding the correct flags and your way around the course. Tee boxes are garbage. Greens are in good shape as the usually are.
Will I go back? Probably as it can be a good little place to work on the irons, but I will only at a much discounted rate due to condition.

Horrible golf course
I have no idea how their reviews are as good as they are! First, this is supposed to be a quick and short course. However, they were so backed up from letting twosomes play that it took us over 2 hours to finish 9 holes. Second, the tee boxes and general course conditions were horrible but that’s pretty much expected for a $25/round course. Third, our golf cart completely died at hole 12. We called 4 times and left 2 voicemails and no one would answer nor call us back. After waiting for 15-20 minutes we ended up having to pack up all our stuff and walk back to the club house. As we were walking back there was another pair of guys pushing their golf cart into the parking lot! When we got to the club house they were apologetic and we requested our money be returned to the credit card we used. The course GM said they are having major cart issues and gave us a “free round”. After I asked about the credit to our account they stated that’s what the free round was for, which we obviously didn’t want another round at this course. He did refund our money but overall it was a complete waste of a day. Don’t trust the reviews!

It's all about where you place your approach shots. If you have trouble with your irons, you won't like this course. Only needed the driver twice. Some pin placements were impossible to get close to without the ball rolling off the green.

great iron course
I loved this course as it was setup for iron play which everyone needs to practice.

Today I played this course for the 4th time since June. The course allows for all levels of experience. After the first time playing and talking with the manager, he stated "we are working on improving the course" I can tell you that they have. They have addressed the tall grass not rough as they called it where you lost a ball 3 feet from the fairway and have worked on the overall image of the course. As a single playing later in the day, you have the opportunity to play multiple balls for the true practice round and work on tailoring your game. I definitely will play again on my visits back to the area.

Good golf chanllenge
Steel Canyon is a short course with several challenges along the way. Some of the fairways are wide, a few were very narrow to sharpen your skills for hitting the ball straight! There were a couple of holes your had to hit over water and some with lots of brush to lose your ball in. I thought it was very good and short enough to grab 18 challenging holes for all levels of golfers.

Being a beginner golfer (less than a year) I enjoy getting out on this course. For one its cheap and two the friendliness of the staff is excellent. Guven that this used to be a landfill you can't have huge expectations. For an executive course with 2 par 5s, this course is just so fun!
