As a first step in improving the City’s recently acquired open space land and to enhance Mission Viejo’s pristine trail system, the City has been clearing brush and the slopes along the Oso Creek Trail. At the same time, the slopes along the Casta del Sol Golf Course have been cleared and grubbed, and several weakened trees that were potentially threatening adjacent homes were removed.
The City acquired the golf course – known as the best-kept secret in Orange County – last year to preserve more than 100 acres of open space and connect the heart of Mission Viejo. The golf course property and open space behind it (totaling 108 acres) provide a critical link to the Oso Creek Trail and well beyond. The surrounding community has long desired improvements to this area – and the work is the beginning of a series of envisioned enhancements to the outdoor space that can be enjoyed by people of all ages for generations to come.
The current work also includes trimming trees along the slopes. These essential enhancements follow upgrades the City has been making to the golf course that includes painting the building, repaving the parking lot and upgrading the patio, lighting, pump yard and other features of the property that was built in 1970.
