Nice resort style course well kept fairways and greens are bent grass. sleepy not much going on so it was easy to get on the course. Price was higher than I expected but there is deal for two on golf moose with cart for $90.

The course was in great shape for there being a drought in CA still. It's must play. Food was great after the turn.

Great river side golf. Woodland, SoCal style. Can be hot in the summer, so play in the morning. There are a few holes where you can bomb away, and others, shorter, when it's important to be accurate. Great greens. I manage a few pars each...More
