The course is in bad shape, brown fairways and bad greens not cut and with big spots

The golf cart I got was a second hand purchased golf cart with broken seat covers and not clean (all full of dust)

The staff told me that they had broken bathrooms pipes and they had a potty put on the parking lot coming in

The staff could not find my golfnow reservation and payment and want it to charge me again for the reserved t-Time

Overall terrible......

Definitely a beginners course

When checking in, the guy at the pro shop told me that they had changed the rates and it was now double of what I booked it for. I told him that if they cannot honor my reservation then I would just leave. After some discussion, I asked for a cart, because my coworker whom I was playing with is slightly disabled. I was told it would be $32 per person riding in the cart. My coworker decided that he would be ok to walk it since it was only 9 holes. The fairways were chewed up! The grounds crew kept watering the greens even when people were trying to put or chip on to the green. The grounds crew showed zero courtesy to golfers teeing off or playing from the fairways. The guy in the drink/snack caret was very friendly & funny. He was the main reason I gave the staff 4 stars.

Overall

I played this course a lot and stopped for awhile and just played again. Too many beginners and seniors. It’s very slow pace. It does not help when tee time are not followed. A lot of golfers just walk in with one tee time and like 8-12 players in the group. That is why the tee box is so clogged of players waiting in line. The person working bringing the range ball is so rude. I will not hire that man to be in the customer service.

Recently punched greens

Looks like they just punched the greens overnight. Plugs everywhere. Showed up at 8am for tee time and they were filling with sand as we were playing. Basically unplayable at the moment. Give it a few weeks to recover.

National City Golf Course

Way over booked most holes were backed up by two groups. Those golfer violated just about every rule, hitting multiple balls , taking forever on the green, loud talking, tank tops, tee shirts, the course was in poor condition. I will not play it again.
