Did Not Disappoint

I've always heard good things about this course, but never wanted to pay the greens fees (which are usually about $100). Finally got a chance to play with a Hot Deal for $71+ fees and jumped at the chance. So glad I did! Fantastic course! Very challenging, but fun and beautiful. I wouldn't want to play every week, but good for special occasions. It's now in my top 5 courses in SD County.

always want to come back

played many "inland" courses near San Diego recently as they are very hot summer time. But this courses is standing out above many others in that the fairways are green and in excellent shape instead of brown and dry. this makes it an ideal course for playing cooler seasons.

The Garry Player design for the 3 9s are challenging and fun. can't wait to come back for another round.

Don’t Expect Much

Came here from out of town with a group of 8 people expecting a quality course for the $100 price tag. Front nine took about three hours. We played as a group of 8 on the back and still waited on every tee shot. At one point there were 18 people on one hole waiting to hit. Conditions were not great for a $100 course (mostly the fairways were a mix of mud/crab grass). Greens were decent. This property has a ton of potential to be great but unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be ran properly. Spend your money elsewhere until things change here.

Sorry your experience wasn't up to expectations, but your comments are a bit off the mark. Your group was offered to go a different course rotation, which was playing at a quicker pace, as we have 27 holes, but you declined. The group that teed off directly in front of you finished in exactly 5 hours on a very busy Friday afternoon. Being from out of town you may not have realized that San Diego did receive nearly 2 inches of rain last week, the dormant fairways from the winter have started popping fresh grass and has not been cut low yet as we want to promote that spread and growth.

Nice round of golf on a perfect day!

Our foursome loved our day on the course. The weather was perfect, the course was in good shape and the pace of play was very good.

Hidden gem in San Diego

Great course in east side of San Diego. The scenery is beautiful and you hear no outside noises, real peaceful and you connect to nature. The grass and greens are pretty decent, considering it’s Winter. The staff don’t like to answer questions but they mean no harm, I guess.. overall great experience

Challenging Course

This was my first time playing this course. Beautiful setting, great layout and challenging. Super fast greens, well maintained, scenic course and some mandatory carry holes make this course extremely challenging for me. Great time and will definetly come back.

Nice layout, brutal pace of play

Great, fun layout. Not much grass in the fairways. Painfully slow pace of play...5 hrs plus on a Sunday at 8:30am.
We factored in 4:30-4:45 pace of play. Ended up skipping the last 3 holes to get to the airport. Won’t go back

Tee Boxes were rough hard to find a place to stand without a divot.

Greens were less than desirable need maintenance.
