We enjoyed our day in many ways. The weather was perfect. The animals were out on the course and not afraid of us at all. We saw hawks soaring. We saw deer right on the fairways. We saw road runners on the greens. Rabits at dusk enjoying the beautiful green grass. It was animal lovers paradise.

I didn't play my best golf but will be back soon if possible to meet the challenge.

What a pleasant surprise.... Eagle Crest is back! Course conditions were very good and most of the fairways and tee boxes were in great shape... that is... grass, where grass is supposed to be. We had played just over a year ago when they were experiencing significant irrigation issues and you needed a hammer to put a tee in the ground on several holes, and some of the fairways resembled an unpaved parking lot. Kudos to the maintenance team as I know it has taken a very large and very focused effort to get things fixed.

My buddy and I were extremely happy that there has also been significant improvement with the greens and the fact they are in the best shape we've ever seeing the last couple of years. To be quite honest we've avoided the course due to prior experiences, but had heard through friends that the course had seen many benefits from a solid maintenance effort. They were right on the money. The only down-side we experienced was the fact their coffee maker had broken the day before and that the person who runs the food-service grill wasn't arriving until after 9:30 or 10:00 AM. It would have been nice to have coffee since we ended up first out and experienced a bit of fog on the first two holes. The temp was around 45 degrees and after a couple holes we were able to start removing jackets, sweaters, etc.

In closing there are two things we will do based on this experience... First, we will put Eagle Crest back into our course rotation to play again. Second, I will buy a large thermos for coffee to take along if we end up being first out on the next round.

Thank you for the opportunity to share our experience and, finally...best of luck to all who keep calm and play through...

Took Eagle Crest up on their $20 play-all-day offer. Speed of play was good. As a single, I passed about 6 groups in the first round, only a few in the second round. Management appears to be working on course (blue and white tee boxes were closed for the most part), so had to tee off from temporary tees. Fairways are still spotty, but greens are in fantastic shape.

Lots of maintenance work going on, so hoping for overall course improvement in the coming months.

5 of us played the course yesterday (Nov. 2, 2017), and were glad to see the course in a lot better shape than recent reviews had claimed. The greens were nice & green, although a bit on the slow side, and the fairways & tee boxes, for the most part, filled-in and green. They now have water, so everything about the course is better. Although it's not back to where it was before the water crisis, it is certainly getting there, and most importantly, it is very playable. It is still one of the most interesting tracks in San Diego. If you haven't played it in a \while, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

This course is well worth the $20 we paid. There are brown spots on the fairway, however most of the fairways are in great condition and the greens were wonderful. The course layout was challenging, but very fair. All in all had a great time.

I have played this course a few times before and enjoyed today very much. It seems that the fairway condition and shape have been much improved and that green is perfect. It was hot but there was cold drinking water on several holes and beverage cart was often going around. I think the club staff try to make big efforts for golfers. The course layout is fun to play. I wonder if all the holes could be "Cart Path Only" for a while for watering and seeding to improve the fairway condition more, so more golfers can come to play this course.

I play here all the time. The maintenance has stepped up their game and the progress is noticeable. Especially right now that it's 90-100 degrees. #8 used to be barren and now it's a field of green. Yes, there is work to be done, but it's exciting to see the changes and I'll continue playing here because the layout is pretty awesome.

Course has a great layout, a lot of options other than just hitting driver on every hole. Condition of the course was very poor. Greens were in terrible shape and very little grass in the fairway. For what I paid, less than $20 on a Saturday, that was about what it was worth. Would come back in the future if they found a solution to their poor greens.

Course could use a bit more water on fairways. Some brown spots on greens, but they were basically soft and rolled well. New management group is trying to turn things around and course is very pretty in its location. Reminds me a bit of Mt. Woodson.

The course was in poor condition. Tee boxes were in decent shape, fairways were in horrible shape, and greens were not in much better shape. Best thing I can say...the staff was professional and the pace of play was terrific.

Played in April and May and course looked to be improving. This trip, the fairways are in serious need of water. More brown batches than green. Greens are OK, a little on the slow side. Tee boxes are in need of work, as some are patchy at best.

You get what you pay for (if you snag a hot deal), but paying more than $25 for this track is too much.
