Wet and poor conditions

There has been a considerable amount of rain in San Diego over the past month, so I expected it to be wet. But mud patches, no grass and overall poor conditions are unacceptable.

Course was closed

Booked through GN. Was not sure weather it was closed due to flooding but assumed that I would be informed up front if it was closed. I went there and it was closed due to flooding.
Sent a mail to Riverwalk and asked for a refund. Got a very friendly mail back that I was qualified for a refund but I should reach out to GN. After studying the GN app/website I realized that the cancellation/refund function was gone after my tee time hour.
This review shouldn’t actually be the media for this remark, but I cannot find any other ways to get in contact with GN. Hope somebody now will reach out to me.

First time

It was a great day in the course. Some holes were a little confusing. I hope they can revise the map a little better. Some things were under construction but we had a great time.

Construction on Course

About 4 holes were affected by major construction work going on. I was not told there would be construction. I would have not booked for the price listed if I was aware.

Quirky Under Repair but Fun

Always enjoy this track and course is in decent shape. Just some weird maintenance going on with the tea boxes and some water lines. Just be prepared but still have a good time. Some of the back teaser moved up.

Great Marshall/Under Communication

The starter was not very concerned with the pace of play or about the threesome of young men teeing off in jeans and t shirts hitting from the back tees that were unable to clear the gulch on the opening tee box. Because of this, we needed up skipping TWO groups moving at an unbelievable slow pace at the third hole. The starter was waiting for both groups on the 4th tee box and apologized to us for the lack of pace consideration at the start.

The course was also under construction and we were not given a warning of that at any point. There were two different holes with greens moved on to the fairway, leaving it a hole unable to truly score. That added to the missed hole because we had to skip two groups left us with three holes less than what we paid for. The course was in ok shape and I am excited to see how it plays once construction is done, but sadly all of golf is a below average in comparison to what you have to pay these days. I only play this course when it’s on a hot deal.
