More public input sought during 2nd Oso Creek Golf Course and Public Space Virtual Workshop July 27

oso creek golf

Based on public input garnered during the Oso Creek Golf Course and Public Space Virtual Workshop in March, a draft plan was created and a second community workshop will take place on July 27.

Since the public involvement was so robust during the first virtual workshop, the July meeting will also be held from 6-7:30 pm via Zoom.

The City in 2019 acquired the formerly named Casta Del Sol Golf Course that was designed in 1970. Along with the open space along Oso Creek between Casta Del Sol Road and Jeronimo, the City now owns more than 200 acres of public space in the heart of Mission Viejo. This Vision Plan will help identify alternatives for the best uses of the public space in the future.

Register for the workshop today at this link. For more information about the course and its amenities including Terrace on the Green, visit https://osocreekgolf.com.

The plans for golf course discussed during the March Virtual Workshop would be devastating for the golf course. These plans would change an executive course into pitch and putt course. Shortening numbers nine, one, and ten will reduce challenging holes to minor par threes.
To run a walking trail inside the course along Marguerite Pkwy so that it reaches the lake will dramatically negatively impact the course to make the trail safe from flying balls.
The city has done a lot of very positive thing with the course and its facilities, please don’t spoil it now.

The proposed amenities (especially the additional accommodations like restrooms and food resources) to the community trail system not to mention the connectivity of the civic center, community center, Oso creek trail, and all the way up to the lake is a must needed and wanted improvement. I love MV but it is severely lacking updated food and entertainment venues. This will be a welcome change from a private setting serving only a select few to serving the entire community not to mention sure will improve property values and livelihoods of the residents... here here!

Don't shorten holes 1,9 and 10 If you need to shorten one hole, OK but to turn all 3 into short par 3 has a huge impact. My wife and I golf 2 - 3 times a week and would not if these three holes were shortened. I can't believe we are alone. Serve a quality dinner at the restaurant to drive more revenue, Snacks only after 3:00 doesn't help

Don't shorten the course. Add a member club with a monthly fee and a discount. Install a restroom at fifteenth tee

Please do not consider adding a walking trail to the golf course. It would create a hazardous environment to those walking and open the city to significant liability if someone was injured.

The changes the city have made have been positively received. With that said, I would recommend better food options, improve the clubhouse and continue to improve greens and overall course grass condition. I applaud the efforts that have been made and look forward to seeing the results of the cities investment into this golf course.

I am a weekly player at Oso and I am not in favor of shortening the golf course at all. If rest rooms need to be added, then consider one after the ninth hole, after the 11 th hole or at the 15 th hole.
In addition, I firmly believe that adding a walking trail along the golf course will add severely to a liability situation. Remember the eye injury from a golf ball at Saddleback Golf Range years ago!!

Do not shorten the course. Mission viejo has many hiking and walking trails and few golf courses. A lot of golfers like the course just as it is. Add a bathroom and snack bar at the north end of the course. Also, would be nice to serve more than snacks after 3, especially in the summer.

Please do not shorten an already short course. I’ve lived in MV my entire life and this course, if anything could be extended and made more challenging. There are already a significant amount of hiking/walking trails throughout Mission Viejo that accommodate the public.
Please do not shorten the course

Do not shorten the course! Lake Mission Viejo is directly across the street and offers a beautiful 3+ mile trail. There is no need to interfere with the course. Leave it alone!

A nature or walking trail linking the "downtown" area to the lake is a great idea. Imagine being able to easily walk or bike down to the library or up to the lake without the danger of busy streets. A nature trail through the canyon would be a FAR better benefit than an extra hole on a dying golf course. Golf is not anywhere near as popular as walking, hiking & biking. Just look at how many people use Oso creek and the park on any given weekend versus how many golf. A public space should benefit ALL Mission Viejo residents, not restrict access to a very small number to preserve a hobby.
