Played Mar 13

Tees were mostly good with areas of damage and some unlevel

Fairways were hit and miss as many varieties of grass are present and dormant to green could be had as a lie

Green surrounds were also hit and miss anything from lush to bare

Rough was non existent

Greens were mostly good smooth and medium to fast. There were a few greens that had very poor patches. The difficulty is reading these greens as the land slopes mostly towards the valley bottom but visually it fools you, definitely a home course advantage here.

He would play this course again.

Played mid March, First time playing in the Bakersfield CA area and not sure when the optimal season is.
Compared to home conditions the fairways were in rough shape overgrown with clover and many bare spots throughout. Greens were mostly in good shape and play tough but true.
Plays long White Tees over 6,500 with many par 4's over 400 yards 1 was 454 yds. Par 3's almost 200 yds.
Par 5's were a good length for 3 shot play.
Kitchen facilities were closed at 3:00 pm

The few groups in front of me graciously let me play through due to my fast play and playing single. Everyone I encountered was very nice. The course demonstrated that it's fairly easy but still difficult enough to keep me honest.

Upon reading other reviews I thought the course might be in better condition. Roughs in between Fairways covered in mulch so they don't have to maintain it. Soaking wet greens. Golf cart broke down on the back nine. With an early tee time not sure why batteries dying after 10 holes. Cheap fees. But I'd rather play in town for a little bit more money.
