Vi eyard needs work

The bunkers are in dire need of attention and fairways drying quickly. Not a bad deal for quick round to loosen up

Surprisingly nice.............

Not really as bad as i read. Considering summertime things were green all around. Greens were soft and a little slow so give a bit more oomph and you'll be fine. I went on wednesday and the pace was good, a little wait on a couple o holes. A nice time was had by all............

This course is terrible for the money

The traps are absolutely terrible. It's like hitting off the side walk. Decided not to break my clubs so I took free drop. The fairways were bare and dirt at best. The greens were ok. The golf carts were terrible. Mine broke down. For 80 bucks a round you would expect something a heck of alot better.

Place is terrible!! Save your money!

Wow where do I start. Please don’t waste your time or money coming here. The course conditions are pretty bad, lots of dirt patches and sand in almost every fairway. But to make matters worse the pace of play was way behind.

It took us about 15 mins to wait at every tee box just to hit. This isn’t the first time that this has happened. On top of that they had no Marshall’s holding people accountable for picking it up.

Most of the employees there seemed miserable from the start, the staff was super un helpful and when I went to talk to a manager to give feedback, they just chewed their gum and looked down on their phone the entire time.

Def wouldn’t pay more than $25 to play 18, mostly just based on the course conditions alone. Better off playing an executive course somewhere else to get your moneys worth.

Challenging layout, poor conditioning

Fairways and tee boxes are in rough shape. They way over water the course, making the course way too soft. Would be better off if they let the fairway/greens bake out a bit.

The Vineyards

The Vineyards was a very enjoyable course to play.Unfortunately no Beverage cart on course. The only bummer was the foursome ahead of us was the slowest ever.but the surrounding views around the beautiful course was gorgeous. We also had a redtail hawk land within 25 feet of one of our tee boxes that was just beautiful. And of course perfect weather.

Solid Course and Overall Experience

Haven’t played here in years. Got a hot deal to do so this past Sunday and was pleased to see how it’s been holding up. Customer service is great, ambassador’s are friendly, and overall the course is great to play. There were a few hold ups but overall pace was good. Considering it’s Escondido some dry/rough patches are to be expected but not too bad overall.

Sand Traps hard as a rock

Course is in excellent condition other than the sand traps.
They were hard as a rock. Suggest they put some fluffy sand in.

Terrible

To start, staffs were terrible. Not friendly at all...I have encountered 4 staffs and they were all terrible.

The Greens were not too bad but the overall course condition was pretty bad.
