I got to play the Canyon / Ranch 9's at Steele Canyon while in the area for work. The greens were great and certainly the best part of the course in my opinion. They rolled true without bumps and at a nice pace. The fairways were OK. Much of the grass seemed dormant, especially the rough surrounding some of the greens. I'm from the North East so I'm not completely sure how much of that is from the SoCal drought or time of year.

The layout is nice. There are some neat holes with fun elevation changes, but there are one or two head scratchers as well. Some holes felt like bumper bowling with big sloping sides that kick the ball back towards the fairway. I suppose that's good or bad depending on your game. While there was some trouble on the course, it's easy to take it out of play if you are accurate enough to stay on one side of a hole. Overall I thought it was pretty forgiving.

We paid a $69 twilight rate for non-residents. I was happy to get out somewhere on short notice while we are snowed in at home, but it was a little steep. Residents play for about $20 cheaper, and I feel that's the fair price point for this course. I would not pay the $100 plus for a morning tee time.

The course is an interesting 27 hole layout with really nice greens. Lots of variation in length. Holes meander through the canyon and no two holes are side by side. Fairways are in good shape considering the lack of rain recently. Staff was very welcoming and helpful. Played on a Hot Time rate which was a very fair price but probably wouldn’t pay the “rack rate” that I heard was significantly higher. I would play it again and recommend it to friends.

Canyon course layout is a joke! Ranch has a few good holes but some gimmicky ones also.

Green conditions were very good. Some fairways nice, but overall nothing I'd recommend

Good overall track and conditions. Small driving range to warm up and nice practice putting greens. I stayed for lunch and the food was good. They don’t have showers so if you need to change to go to a meeting after, yuu’ll need to make other arrangements.

What an incredible course! The course was in fantastic shape fairways were beautiful greens rolled true and were in incredible shape. The club house was immaculate the staff was very friendly and the views were majestic. If I lived in East County San Diego I would make this my home course without a doubt. It was simply the best experience of my five days of golf on my trip to San Diego.

This course has the best greens and overall conditions of anywhere in the south I would put this course ahead of Sycuan. Pace of play was not great but if the slow group ahead of us would have let us through it would have been fine. I highly recommend this course.
