You almost get what you pay for...

Aviara remains a premier golf property but comes at a price. Cost is about 20% over where it should be.
Some of the greens were punched and sanded. Not mentioned by the starter which was a surprise.

Always beautiful

Great course design. Fast greens, good shots are good and most missed shots can be found a played. To me that is the mark of an enjoyable course. Of course the water shots are gone. As far as conditions and quality for the price, this course is the best available in No. County San Diego.

Beautiful Course

We had a great golfing experience! Pricing was a little steep but I would go back! The course was in excellent condition. We had a unique experience playing with a young lady who was going to qualify for the upcoming LPGA event being held at that course. She would hit different shots and try different putts to get a lay of the land. This took time and we had good Golfers behind us so I was feeling a little uneasy. She was very nice and I appreciated her game!!! We also played with a member who could help point out areas to avoid. We have told our friends to go and play this course. Many of us are her at a Convention. Next time back in the area we will be back to play!!!

Fast greens

Played on Dec 1. Starter could not have been nicer. Course was in great condition. Greens are fast and difficult to read.... Making the course challenging and fun. Multiple options on Tee boxes so you can customize your experience. A bit expensive but got a deal on GolfNow. Would play it again for sure

Definitely one of the best

Played Aviara for the first time, and I must say, that the course is one of the best I have seen in a long time. The staff is friendly and helpful, the greens are fast, ondulated and in mint condition. The landscaping and gardening is beautiful. At rack rate I still believe, that the course is slightly overpriced, but if you can get a deal, then go for it!

Summer conditions less than ideal

Layout and scenery are outstanding. Tee boxes were punched and overseeded, a few of the greens were recently aerated and there were several bald spots, especially around the greens. Not too out of the ordinary for summer in San Diego. However, if you are paying rack rate, then I suggest waiting until maintenance is complete and the conditions improve. It should be perfect in the winter.

Great, Scenic Course

Second time playing Aviara and it was a great round. Many sceneic holes and challenging shots. Your experience depends on choosing the correct tees. The course can play both too easy or too difficult if you select the wrong tees. Ask starter for advice.

Bad idea

I booked the round on golf now and was forced to pay online before I played .$160... A discount!??
When I was warming up on the range someone told me it was there 25th anniversary and had rolled back prices yo opening day of $65. I politely asked the pro shop about this and said since pre paid a third party to play their course there was nothing they could do for me!!! No discount no here's a coupon for the next time you players. It would have been real easy for them to say hey there is not anything we can do because you booked through golf now but here's a shirt, a hat a f$&&&ing sleeve of balls anything!!! But no it's sorry pal have a nice day. Then when your done the do the typical fleecing t clean your clubs. We waited on every single shot all day!!! My clubs were clean believe me, so when I told them I'm good fellas they looked at each other and just said really dude.... Hey club cleaners here's the best tip you will ever get, if you have to ask for more money i.e. Tip after you do your job that your paid to do then it might be time for a real job..
The starter and my playing partner were the best part of the course . I had a great time with a gentleman from Texas, at least he helped me enjoy my birthday round.

Most beautiful Par 3's I've ever seen on a course

The scenery/landscaping of this course was beautiful. Awesome Par 3's that will have you snapping a few photos off the tee. The fairways and greens were in great shape.

The locker room is open to the public golfers, and was a huge bonus to the pre/post round visit. Full locker rooms with showers/sauna etc.

Check golfnow and you should be able to play this course for around $130.
Well worth it.

Beautiful course in excellent condition

This was the 2nd time playing this course. The first time was right after a reseeding of the fairways. The difference was very significant. Not only were the fairways in much better condition, so was the rough. The greens are tough , but fair. Course played much longer and much more difficult. If you haven't played this course, you should. It is a beautiful resort. A bit pricey, but you definitely get what you paid for. You're at a high end resort and it feels that way... minus the snobbery you sometimes get at higher end golf resorts. Beautiful scenery and very challenging! I highly recommend it.
