Comments

QuickBuck: Tough course, you must use the right club. You will never know which one until you play it. They take good care of it. Every fairway was green. All the tee boxes are domed, and it will mess you up. No sand traps! What a treat. The greens are tricky. Pin placement can be challenging if they want it to be.

Malibu: Nice inexpensive golf without any sand traps to contend with. Overall condition of this course is good. Fairways were in nice shape. Greens were in very nice shape, but hard to read. For the money, fun experience.

Bone: Difficult course to review. Played with only three clubs to celebrate our 100th golf course review. Only 5860 yards from back tees, changes strategy dramatically. Make sure you play with someone who has played before; can’t tell which way holes go sometimes. Retirement course.

Stone: Interesting course. Restaurant/patio dining outside. No real clubhouse, but okay pro shop with some nice sales in progress. Nice people, tricky course which will eat your lunch with narrow fairways and lots of water. If you have not played here before, bring lots of balls as some of the water is hidden or deceptively close. Many right and left doglegs and trees so even though the course is short and may have an easier slope/rating, it is much more difficult than you would expect. Having said all that, the course is fair but can be frustrating; four of us started with three clubs each, one of us left with only two and it wasn’t because he forgot it somewhere on the course…
