Home Executive Course

I grew up playing this course as a kid. Many a time my brother and I join mom and dad on this sleepy little executive course. In all honesty, todays play reminded me that I need to play here more often. The course was in decent shape, and there are some decently long wholes on the back nine that make this course all about getting down in 3!

A beautiful course

This course is so beautiful. I love to play here. I am usually done in 3 hours. There are 4 par fours. My husband enjoys playing there too. It is great to practice your short game. My only complaint is that at low places it is so damp that the ball just stops and is covered in mud. I really don’t mind. It is really fun to play at St. Mark’s Executive course.

First Time at St Marks

This was my first time at St Marks. The fairways have a lot of ground under repair and a lot of thin spots. It would be a tough course on a good day, but todays wind made it even harder. There was so much debris blowing all day and the greens were covered. 2 putt rule for sure. I look forward to playing on a non-windy day.

Rude and money stolen

We have been going to this course for years. We have recently noticed the staff was rude but it was an easy, fun course for the whole fam and ignored them. Today the cart guy told us to be done within an hour after paying for a tee time- which we did. We turned in our cart and forgot our wallet- bonehead move but came right back. The wallet was returned $100 short. My husband was told that he should be happy he got it back. Will not be back or recommending to anyone.

Election Day Golf

Glad to get out on a weekday, w/ t-time @ 1P. Fairways were soft, with tight lies, often with a little mud on the ball. Traps were good (if you happen to be in them.) Green, too, were soft but speedy and, playing later in the day, really showed spike marks. Overall, a flat, but challenging course. Don't be above the cup.

Love St Mark

One of my favorite San Diego area courses, St Mark is an interesting track with a lot of character. Several very challenging holes offset by some good scoring opportunities. Great amenities and the staff is always helpful and friendly. Beautiful venue I strongly recommend to any golfer looking for a reasonable chance for a good round. Course and greens are almost always in great shape.

St Mark

I played somewhere else with a stranger who recommended this course. Remind me to buy that guy a drink. I really enjoyed this course, there is grass in the fairways, the greens were receptive. It is out of the way for me as I live in S County but worth the trip.
