Good for the money

I like Cottonwood it is not super easy, mainly because of the trees. The greens are good and the pace of play is good every to me I have played. The bad is there are no ball washers, rakes in the sand traps or restrooms on course. This might be because of COVID not sure. It is a good value especially for the area with Sining Hills $149 with a cart on the weekend. Because of the value it can be tough to get on.

Thank you for leaving a review. Yes, the absence of the items you have listed is due to COVID. We hope to have those back on the golf course sometime in the future.

Another Great Day for Golfing in San Diego

Overall course was in good shape. Looks like they aerated greens a couple weeks ago. I like Cottonwoods practice area but unfortunately the range is irons only.

Great value and fun course

Course conditions were great for the price! Far better than other courses in San Diego IMO. Fairways were tight, greens were flat (a bit slow tho), and tee boxes were clean. Would recommend.

Greens are bouncing back from being punched. Over all in good shape. Marshals need to police slow play.
