I gamed at Old Ranch CC past Sunday.  Track was well groomed and fun.  The course was in way better shape than Bernardo Heights I played two weeks ago.  I didn't play well at all but am so eager to have a redemption round soon.

Also, there was air show at the naval air station next to the course.  It was awesome to watch F35 and Blue Angels flying over my group.  What a show!

Now that I am part of Clubcorp, I would like to know what is like at other Clubcorp courses in the area.  Coto de Caza, Aliso Viejo, Canyon Crest, Braemar and Porter Valley.

Play Coto North. Great course.

You also have some Palm Springs options as well.

I had a really good time at Aliso Viejo a couple of years ago.  Seemed like a younger membership.  Good vibe on a Thursday pm.  Locker room was nice.  Course is essentially unwalkable, but it was in good shape and the elevation changes kept it interesting.  Worth a play.  

Only downside is that there is no range.  You hit into a net in the parking lot.

Braemar is fine. It's mostly just a total waste of great land with good conditioning.

I played at Braemar after the renovation 2 or 3 years ago.  I profile it as typical SF valley course; tight fairway and some blind spots.  It was in good condition with tricky green.

I heard that the next door neighbor cub is better than Braemar.

I think this is what makes the renovation so hard to digest. El Cab just right down the road is superior in just about every aspect.

If Braemar had put some more money (not in ClubCorps nature) into the reno it could've been a spectacular course

El Cab being better is an understatement.  One of my favorite courses in all of Southern California.  Old School course that is tricky, difficult, not gimmicky, not overly long and rewards good shots.

Too bad I got no connection at El Cab.  :(
