Update the GolfNow course description!

There's only one course. Driving range doesn't exist. Judging by the weeds covering both, there are not recent developments. Reality is, it's a tired facility. Greens are large and in decent shape, except for the ballmarks that no one repairs. Pace of play was okay. Played here only because I was staying downtown San Diego and wanted something nearby. Given the same circumstances, I would try another course in the future.

Hello, We do have a driving range, a small one, but a driving range. It is irons-only. We are sorry that your experience was not as expected.

Very slow pace of play

This course has no Marshall’s to assist in speeding up play. Over a 5 hour round today ruined the enjoyment of golf play for all of us. This course needs marshals.

Very slow pace of play

This round lasted over 5 hours due to extremely slow play This course has no marshals pushing play along at a reasonable pace. Made the golf round unenjoyable.

Great condition!

I haven’t played this course in a few years. It was in pretty good condition. The fairway and rough were nice. The greens were medium speed and manageable. Not to difficult if you keep the ball in play. Very large greens. So, practice the long putts before your round. The staff are very friendly and professional. Everyone there makes you feel appreciated. Thanks Cottonwood!
