Course had lots of ravines, brush, water and hill top hazards as you hit from top of canyons. Made it very challenging!

This course would be excellent if it had GPS in the golf carts!

Mr. Rousseau,
We are sorry your experience was less than satisfactory. There was a Marshall/Player Assistant on duty that afternoon, actually 2 when you started, but with 27 holes you may have missed them. If you are to have a similar experience in the future it is advised you call the golf shop to let them know what is going on so they can try and help remedy the situation. The phone # is listed on our scorecard which is placed on every cart. In addition, if our Starter had been made aware it was your first time visiting he has plenty of course guides that are complimentary to our guests. Again, we apologize you were not better looked after.

Not a good resort course - May work for members

Very disappointing . Without a guide, it was virtually impossible to play. Too many blind shots and unknown distances to hazards. Conditions were mediocre at best. The round took over five hours. There were no marshals.

Steel Canyon is a hidden gem

Steele Canyon is a hidden gem. Greats course with all kinds of elevation changes. Greens were in fantastic shape. Really fair layout. Just wish the fairways were a little better shape but its hard with the drought in San Diego. Would definitely play this course again .

Paying for the Course Designer

$168 pre paid. NO RANGE BALLS included.Cart yes, but NO GPS setup. Good course design but thta about it Played the Canyon and the Ranch courses (3 - 9's) Greens were in good condition about a 11, but posted at 10.5 per GREEN INFO. Warmer weather made them harder, hence course knowledge helped and told you to lay up or play to short of the pin. I have played better courses and have NOT paid as much. (Rustic Canyon near me at HALF the price) Staff was good, Gave me a BOOK to get me around. Had a 11:03 tee time, but because guys ahead of us were playing in their own ELEVEN man tournament, I got pushed back. Then waited each hole as they played the PROFESSIONAL game with skills of high handicappers. They were a Hole and a half behind as we made the turn. They were nice enough to purchase our threesome, drinks on the back 9. I would only go back to play the OTHER 9. Player in Twosome I played with was a member and stated they almost wanted to go private, if enough members joined...Maybe at these prices they should...NOT IMPRESSED WITH ANYTHING other than the course...Give the BLACK KNIGHT his props. Canyon was a solid 9, #5 on Ranch is nice but others just seemed okay

I love this layout

This Gary Player design is challenging and rewarding. The course was in beautiful shape when I played. The greens were rolling true and fast (12 on the Canyon, 10 on Ranch). Great amenities, friendly staff. I will be back.

Toughest Course in San Diego?

I think this is the toughest course I play in San Diego.
The greens are fast and tricky, the fairways can be narrow and you have to hit over canyons often. Not a lot of room for error, bring lots of balls. The staff is great very friendly and accommodating.
