This course can play long from the tips
Good tee boxes and fairways. The greens we slow for the most part. Probably hard to keep up with due to all the rain. This course needs to install ball washers on the golf carts as there are no on course ball washers. It would be a nice and cheap addition.

Awesome course and the service was excellent.
Even with all of the recent rain the course was in great condition.
I will definitely play there again.

Not too bad.
Payed on a Sunday afternoon as a twosome in 3.5 hours. Tees/Fairways were in pretty good shape, but I've been playing this course for over 10 years and the greens are never where they should be. Lots of worn areas around the edges, and they just looked bad. The were quick, but inconsistent at best. Shame, since the majority of courses I've played in SA over the past few months have had really true greens..these were pretty bumpy, with no signs of a recent punch.

Excellent course especially for the price. Very challenging. Course was in good condition. Greens still need some work. Course had a lot of rain in the last few days and the course maintenance was out fixing all of the sand traps immediately which you don't see often for many courses in this price range. This was my 3rd time playing and will play again.

Only a Shadow of It's Former Condition
I have played this course since it was built over 20 years ago and the infestation of so many homesites has eliminated the former rural and pristine ambiance of this course.
We played here in late March on a warm Spring day, the pace of play was terrible because there are no marshalls on the course.
There was no one to greet us and no cart guys when we arrived at 10:00 AM.
The pro shop was friendly, but they now want to charge for range balls, "because too many people wanted to practice for free."
Our starter was a friendly fellow who has been around for six years and everyone seemed to know him.
Hole #1 is a very short dogleg right that is still cart path only and this causes a logjam on the tee.
Hole #2 used to be a challenging blind tee shot over an old well. It's now a miniature golf-like hole that faces a massive apartment complex that has encroached upon the fairway. We were playing behind a foursome of regulars and two of them actually hit their shots into the apartment's property.
The 3rd hole is a simple short par three, but we watched a player take a ten on this hole. Hole six is a split fairway that used to be equally divided. The tees now favor the right side and the second shot is uphill and deceptively long.
The condition of 75% of the greens was poor. The greens were thin and covered with sand just like you have after an aeration.
Many of the tees were not mowed and the fairways near trees were covered with leaves. Live oak trees shed leaves in February and early March. There's not much maintenance here. There are many rough areas around the green where the soil has eroded but has not been replaced.
Throughout this course the massive build up of apartment buildings and homes on every spare inch of turf has drastically changed the character of this layout. This is a classic example of poor design that allowed no space for greenbelt areas around the course. This is just plain ugly.
I still enjoy hole #16. This is a long dogleg left with a lake. The second shot on this long par four is longer than it looks and the landing area is a small green with water left.
Hole 18 ends with an approach shot that has the canyon springs falling sixty feet from a limestone cliff.
The GPS distances on their cart were at variance with my watch on a number of occasions. The cart paths are starting to need maintenance with breaks that need patching.

I got a deal on golfnow for this tee time, so it was only$25 which was a good value.
Really nice fun course, greens could've been better. But fairways and tee boxes were good.
I'd play again if I found a good deal.

Great Time to Play
In the past I've found the pace of play slow. Upwards of 5 hours to finish a round. However looking at Sunday afternoon finished in 3 playing as a single. Course was in great shape the fairways were plus and nice to hit from greens were soft but a good speed to putt on.
