This is a fun,but challenging golf course. I play from the white tees; 5908 yards, 69.3 rating and slope of 126. Lots of rolling hills and most approach shots require an extra club to the elevated greens. Be sure to get on the website and review each hole before you play, it will pay off. We went on a very...

We made a reservation on line and paid about half the published rate. Course is not cheap but worth every penny. Staff is extremely friendly and the course is in very nice condition in spite of the drought we have in California. Not an easy course, especially the front nine, but a lot of fun. I lost two balls on... More

Lovely views, and reasonably well maintained course overall... especially given the drought in California. The staff was very attendant, and the starts were paced out well. Jimmy's Pub was a great 19th hole to unwind. Very friend staff and a positive experience overall.

We have been here several times but have not been back in many years. Looking forward to visiting again. Had called a couple days before arrival and requested rooms with view overlooking golf. Told over phone that we would have 2 'stunning' rooms. However, we ended up with both looking directly over the parking lot. No privacy. We were told... More

The restaurant was a great pick for our festive reunion dinner because of the beautiful grounds and distinctive decor of the place. Nice selections on the menu and quite a large bar selection.

Just overlooking the beautiful view and how green it is compared to LA. Each hole had its own challenges but fair. Had some trouble with the numerous sand traps. Especially on the signature hole #16. Great par 3 but to have to lay up to avoid the traps? Second day played it different. Such beauty and flowers and wonderful large... More

Great staff, which is only surpassed by a great golf experience. This traditional "parkland style" course doesn't disappoint. Challenging, yet fair, hole set-ups are interesting to the eye as well as affording panoramic and sweeping views of arroyo, barrancas, and lush green hillsides from elevated tee boxes (lots of winter/ spring rain this year) added to the over-all enjoyment of...

We've been to this hotel numerous times but last weekend's stay reminded me that I enjoy my time here as much - or more - than any resort, anywhere, that I've ever been to. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous, the rooms are beautifully appointed in a "country chic" mode and the staff is attentive, eager to please and incredibly knowledgeable... More
