Rode the Blacks (6669/71.9/128) as a 2some in 3H twilight using Forelinx. The weather was really windy, partly cloudy and in the 80's.

Been awhile since I have played in wind like this. It was down to a semi manageable 20+ mph on the back. However, I was hitting 4-5 extra clubs on the front playing into the wind, and was coming up laughably short. Averaging over 300 yard drives downwind, not much over 200 yard drives into the wind. I would guess the gusts were in the 40 mph range, everything from my hat to my head covers went flying down the fairway multiple times.

The course is still in nice condition, but is drying out with the hotter, windier weather. Course conditions were a notch below what I experience last weekend here.

The tees were lush and well maintained.

The fairways are lush and played firm. Nice to play from.

The rough is very lush and thick but not overly high. Just deep enough for the ball to often sit down.

The sand traps had thick, good quality sand. However, some people in front of me must have thought the rakes were for someone else to use.

The large greens putted nice, medium fast speed and are firm. #18 has one of the deepest greens I have ever played or even seen. Hi-lite of my round was 2 putting from the very front up the tier to the very back. I paced it off at 140'.

No driving range, you have to go 1/2 mile down the street where the sister Santa Rosa course has a nice, all grass driving range. No GPS on the basic carts. The customer service was very good from everyone encountered. No drink cart today. Reasonably priced restaurant onsite that is usually very busy. Definitely recommended.

Booked this tee time through GolfNow after reading some of the reviews posted by others. The course was in excellent shape, fairways and greens both firm and fast. Nice layout, picturesque at times and friendly to all playing levels. My husband and I are both single digit handicappers and it was nice to see a length that fit all levels of play. We’d definitely play it again

Rode the Blacks (6669/71.9/128) with John, Jim and Peggy in 4H early morning using UP. The weather was clear, calm and in the low 80's when we finished just before noon.

Generous landing areas and a reasonable difficulty factor would make this course a good choice for players of all skill levels. Some forced carries and water comes into play on many holes, but not for the more forward tees. Would be a difficult course to walk, many tees are a long way from the last green. No GPS on the basic carts.

The tees were lush and very well maintained.

The fairways are lush and were being slice cut today, which affected their playability short-term.

The rough is super lush and punitive. Thick and deep enough to make the ball sit down.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with thick, good quality sand.

The large greens putted nice, medium speed and are firm.

The customer service was excellent from everyone encountered. No drink cart today. Reasonably priced restaurant onsite that was super busy. No driving range, you have to go 1/2 mile down the street where the sister Santa Rosa course has a nice, all grass driving range. Definitely recommended.

Rode the Blacks (6669/71.9/128) with John, Donna and their adult grandscon Nate in 4.5H twilight using UP. The weather was clear, breezy and in the low 70's when we finished around 5pm.

The course is in super condition. Billy Casper designed Par 35-37=72 layout with five par 5's and five par 3's. The front is stacked with par 3's, 4 of your first 8 holes are par 3's. The back 9 averages almost 420 per hole from the Blacks, it plays long.

The tees were lush and well maintained. The Black tees had so few divots they almost looked like artificial turf.

The fairways are lush and very nice to play from.

The rough is super lush and punitive. Thick and just deep enough to make the ball sit down.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with good quality sand. They are thick enough to produce several "fried eggs" in our group.

The large greens putted nice, medium fast speed and firm.

Generous landing areas and the difficulty factor would make it a good choice for players of all skill levels. Some forced carries and water comes into play on many holes. Would be a difficult course to walk, many tees are a long way from the last green. No GPS on the basic carts. The customer service was good from everyone encountered. No drink cart today. Had lunch between rounds, good selection and reasonably priced restaurant. No driving range, you have to go 1/2 mile down the street where the sister Santa Rosa course has a nice, all grass driving range. Definitely recommended.

After having one of the worst experiences of the season at Shadow Mountain, Mountain Vista was a delight.

Beautiful course and in great condition. The only reason I did not give this course 5 stars was the pace of play was rather slow.

Will return to this one.

Played San Gorgonio a few times in the past but when I checked in for my 11:00 tee time I was informed it was a shotgun start. It worked out but unusual. Cart died on the back nine and had to be rescued. No beverages or food was disappointing.

As wet as it has been in the recent days the course was in excellent condition The fairways were good as were the greens. Hats off to Jeff in the pro shop. Very friendly and welcoming.

Would recommend this course for any player regardless of handicap, it offers a test for all.
