San Marcos is one of those older beautiful courses that has stood the test of time. The groundskeepers are doing a great job. I understand that they had to do quite a bit of work as a result of past lack of care. I don’t know this personally.

If you are looking for a great driving range, this isn’t it.

The starter, Numbers 1 and 10 tee boxes, and the putting clock are very close together. Very convenient.

The weather was outstanding, the course is always a fun, leisure experience. Nick, the pro shop is always a delight. Love playing on a fine older course. Had an interesting chat with one of the new cart fellas, another Nick. See you soon,

The course is in OK shape, less watering would be beneficial. Greens need work, overall the course is an 7-8. Greens are tough reading them difficult. Overall I like the course.

Excellent course that was in great condition. All the greens had been sanded but they rolled surprisingly fast, but they werent hard so the ball Would hold on my shots.

A good value for the money and I like the layout. The only negative was a slow pace. Marshall greeted us on the first hole but apparently was going in for the day because we never saw him again. It could’ve been helpful to have him out on the back nine.

Overall though and very good round that we enjoyed very much

..but I was pleasantly surprised. From the two folks working at bag drop, to the lovely beverage cart attendant, to the Marshall to the pro shop, tip top customer service and knowledge. Pace was good considering a beautiful Sunday morning and we were a twosome behind a foursome.

I will be back for sure!

you play slow, walk on and off the greens slowly, park your cart in front of every green, delay moving the carts after exiting the greens, stopping play completely to obtain beer from the beverage cart as often as possible, bring both a non-golfer and a miniature poodle with you onto the course and particularly the greens and then to confirm your social status make sure you urinate in the fairways, around the greens and along the housing fence lines on the course. That's what we had to play behind and even a request for ranger went unanswered.
