"Nice course layout through the oaks with some nice elevation changes"

"This course is heading in the right direction for playability I have played this course often over the years and the conditioning is the best it has been in many years. They are putting the emphasis on improving the greens and it's working. This hidden gem has always deserved someone knowledgeable to tend to it and it now appears to have that. For those of us living in the Southern San Joaquin Valley in the summer time a trip up to Horse Thief is always enjoyable I can highly recommend this course with one word of caution when putting check for Elk prints in your line. I'm not kidding!"

"Control your driver."

"This is an enjoyable course to play. No two holes are alike. Lots of interesting looks from the tee boxes. If you have trouble hitting the ball straight, you can be in for a frustrating round. The fairways were in good shape and the greens in really good shape. I'll definitely play Horse Thief again."

"Pleasant surprise"

"Price is right and the condition of the course was actually better than I expected. I checked "Requires attention" for course condition only because it is not quite at the maintained stage."

"The course is in the best shape I have seen it in since I have been playing here for about a year. Under new management and looks like they are doing a great job maintaining it as well as working on it more. The greens are firm and are a little fast. The greens are in much better shape than before. I can only imagine they will get better. Overall great course. It's worth a drive up to the mountains to get out of wherever you are to enjoy a nice day on a beautiful course."

"Great course with a different feel"

​​​​​​​"The course was great to play. It has a different feel being tucked away in the hills of Tehachapi. Course was maintained well, it could use attention but in no way was it bad. Nice layout and challenging holes. It was nice to have to make smart decisions not just use driver PW-8 iron on every hole like some courses."

"This was a fun and challenging place to play"

​​​​​​​"beautiful course in the hills full of oak trees. elevated tee boxes and winding fairways with boulders and huge trees in the middle made this a real challenge. I am used to playing several straight, flat courses regularly so horse thief was a great change. $50 holiday rate was a great price. you should check it out!"
