Always a pleasure to play at Escena! Definitely one of my favorite golf courses. We had some of the strongest winds I’ve ever had the opportunity to play it. It totally changes the entire course.

Great track. Some long par 3’s and a few reachable par 4’s and 5’s. Great shape. Played at 7:44 AM and was off the course at 11:20. That means a lot when the heat kicks in. I recommend it.

The.course is in perfect shape as usual. The weather was great on a day that they were predicting rain it was dry and warm. We got through 18 holes in exactly 4 hours on a Saturday. This course is one of the great desert values and is what makes Southern California a mecca for golf. Come on out and play this one. You'll never regret it.

Wonderful layout, large quality greens, challenging pin placements, lots of sand, wide open fairways for the most part. would definitely play again. Course was a bit noisy being near the airport and one of the adjacent roads.

Course has lots of trouble so for the hackers that love this course it sucked for the rest. 4 players seemed to dominate play taking forever. 5 hours for 18 holes is totally unreasonable. If you like to wait this is your course !!

Second time here this season. The hot and dry weather is starting to affect some fairways. Good pace of play till the back nine when it backed up a bit but still done in under 4 1/2 hours. No marshalls on the course. Very good value.

the course is beautiful and in great condition. the views are amazing. pace of play was painfully slow (5 hours) due to 2 slow groups and no rangers to be found to speed them up.

Temp hit 100 today, like my score! Terrible golf but not because of the course. It’s very wide open and in great shape. Very challenging par 3’s. I don’t have a single bad thing to say, and the staff were very friendly and helpful as well.

I booked on golf now for just under $80. These days I’d consider that a pretty good value around here all considered.
