No Warning of Punched and Sanded Greens

Greens were punched and sanded over. No warning when booking on their website and charging full price. When I noticed the green conditions when we walked up, the pro shop staff was very rude and aggressively stated they’re charging full price regardless. We drove 45 mins to get there so we were going to play regardless…I think they bank on that since they’re way out there.

The starter was allowing twosomes to go out because they didn’t want to play with others so we teed off late and pace was painfully slow. Marshall wasn’t doing anything to move things along and questioned our group for playing the black tees when we were waiting several minutes between every shot. He recommended we skip a few holes and jump in where there was a gap…which is what he’s supposed to be what preventing as the course marshall. I liked the layout and would have liked to play their normal greens but they really need to fix their operation.

Getting better

Played on football Sunday which thinned out the crowds a little. About 5hrs starting from noon. The course has gotten better since the beginning of the year. (The other twosome ith me said San V is in better condition than Maderas!)
Fairways are above avg. Greens are true, fast, and goofy.....prices are in par with other courses in its category....

Fun in the hills

It's a bit of a trek getting there and back, but a fun drive through the hills. Pace of play was great on a weekday afternoon, and the course was in great shape. The greens are definitely tricky and tough to read on the first play through. Plenty of opportunities to draw and fade the ball, and several opportunities to lose your ball as well. The staff at the 19th hole were very friendly and the food was very tasty.

Pleasantly surprised!

I had played the course once or twice when I moved to the area in 2018 and was not overly impressed. They have done a lot of improvement since then! Greens were perfect and the layout is challenging with a good balance of doglegs, water, hazards, etc. Sand traps were in great shape also. The food at their concession stand was very good and prices reasonable. Will certainly be back!

Fun day golfing

The course was in good condition. They had temporary tee boxes on 2 hole. Wild turkeys everywhere. Pace of play was outstanding. Although there were plenty of golfers there, It was like having the course to ourselves. We didn't see anyone until the 18th hole where we had to wait for 5 minutes. Will definitely be coming back here.

Course is in good condition

For how much of a drought the state's been in, San Vicente is surprisingly green. The tee boxes can be rough on the par 3's, but the greens are like Torrey North.....firm, and pretty smooth. But unlike Torrey North, they roll much quicker. Very much worth it for Golf Now's Hot Deal price.

Undulating Greens

If you feel like you want a challenge with the putter then this course is for you! Very challenging greens but definitely makes it a fun challenge with the flat stick!
