Greens are good, but fairways are a mess

The fairways are really beat up. They all need a ton of work.

Great Course!

For a public course in the San Diego area, this course is very nice. Very nice range and practice area, and the greens were fast for public courses which I like. Would definitely recommend.

Great golf experience.

This is generally a user friendly course. The new carts are comfortable and beautiful. The only small problem is that the regulator is set so you cannot get very close to the putting green which makes it tough for the elderly player.

Overall in good shape

Overall the course is in good shape. The tee boxes were horrible no water dead and overused. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. They have new golf carts that are very nice but very confusing sometimes it lets you on the fairway and sometimes it doesn’t I guess the course wasn’t well marked for when you were supposed to stay on the cart path and when you weren’t.

SLOW PACE AND POOR FAIRWAYS

I played here after having payed earlier in January. The pace of play was VERY slow. 4 hours and 55 minutes to play 18 holes. The fairways are in poor shape. Grass, what little there is, is cut vary low. Also, I made a reservation on line for $46.00 but then was charged a $24.00 cart fee which I thought was excessive. Plus warm-up balls, totaled $76.00 to play a less than average golf course. On a positive note, the greens were in pretty good shape and putting fast.
