Shiny new golf carts arrived at the Oso Creek Golf Course today, replacing dilapidated carts used at the 69-acre golf course for decades.

The arrival of the new golf carts comes on the heels of much-needed enhancements and upgrades the City has been making to the golf course and clubhouse that were built in 1970.  

From savory tastes and bold, flavorful entrées to homemade favorites and delectable dishes kicked up a notch, Mission Viejo Restaurant Week is sure to tempt your taste buds. 

More than 20 eateries will serve up delicious fare during this year’s Mission Viejo Restaurant Week October 5-11.

The City of Mission Viejo will host a Drive-Through Flu Shot Clinic in the parking lot of the Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center on Friday, November 6.

While supplies last, the vaccine from the Orange County Health Care Agency will be available to folks 18 and older from 10 am to 2 pm.  Participants will be required to wear a face mask. 

The flu shots are free, but donations are welcome to benefit the City’s senior services. Mission Hospital is sponsoring the event along with Monarch Health Care and MemorialCare. 

Drum roll please … And the former Casta del Sol golf course has been renamed the Oso Creek Golf Course by resident Don Tayenaka as part of the City’s renaming contest. 

Don’s submission was among more than 1,000 entries for the contest, which resulted with the top four finalists being The Links by Tami Clingan; Oso Viejo by Amy Jennings; The Greens by Robert Way, Sr. and Mission Viejo Golf Club by Aarif Mughal.  

With the Governor's mandate of keeping public buildings closed and Orange County's “purple tier” (worst) designation for COVID-19, the City of Mission Viejo will continue hosting City Council meetings virtually.

Holding the meetings virtually follows State mandates and is out of an abundance of caution and concern for public health and safety.

The meetings will resume in-person when the Governor’s mandate is lifted and all COVID-19 safety protocols are in place.

A new blueprint for business sector reopening was unveiled by Governor Gavin Newsom on August 28, which includes a color-coded tiered system that will use two metrics to measure the novel coronavirus: recent case rates and what share of tests are coming back positive. Along with the tiers, Gov. Newsom announced that hair salons and barbers could reopen to a limited 25 percent capacity in Orange County.

To help our community during the pandemic, the City of Mission Viejo is sponsoring a free distance learning center for students on the Orchard Terrace outside of the Norman P. Murray Community Center.  

The Kids Factory drop-in distance learning support program is designed for elementary school children in grades 1-6 in the Saddleback Valley and Capistrano Unified School Districts.  The program provides students with the opportunity to access WIFI for distance learning in a supervised, outdoor environment while adhering to social distancing requirements.
