We made a spontaneous decision to play while visiting San Diego. The price was great and had times available in early afternoon. The major issue for me was they had too few carts, which caused a long delay to start. Everyone had to wait for people to finish their round for a cart to be available. My wait lasted about 40 minutes past scheduled time. Several groups went off as twosomes due to the wait, which slowed play. We only got 15 in due to darkness. Two different locals told us they had never seen them run out of carts. They must have packed the course full.

The front 9 was okay, with a creek coming into play on almost all holes. There were several blind tee shots, necessitating care to be sure the group in front was clear. The back 9 was a different course altogether. It had a number of sloping fairways and great views of Lake Murray.

We had 3 and 4 groups on each hole on the front, but the back was very open due to several leaving after long waits on the front. Still a nice day in great weather, that could have been better if not so slow.

Tee times backed up by 45 minutes due to lack of golf carts. Was only able to play 4 holes in 2 hours due to it being so backed up. If I have to go back, it will be early morning to avoid the terrible mid to late day organizational issues

The drainage is horrible on the front 9. With all the rain we've had, the front 9 was a swamp. The back 9 was nice and dry. Every time I play this course, the pace of play is rediculous! Always waiting and waiting... The ambassadors need to stay on top of the pace of play and say something to the slower players.

Mission trails is a nice course when they don't overbook. I've been 5-6 times and it always it overcrowded. At one point there were 6 full carts of golfers waiting to tee off on hole 6. The works don't see to care about that fact.

If you are lucky enough to book on a light traffic day you will enjoy this course. Don't go on a weekend or after work.

On a busy Saturday, they need to stop making tee times 7 minutes apart as this is also a course played by beginners as well. One Marshall who whizzed by on a front nine that took us 3 hours. It's over used and crowded. The back is better in design and use as a lot of players quit at the turn because of the wait. If you stick it out then it can be worth it. Still this course should not take 5 plus hours.

The course was in beautiful shape and surrounding area was beautiful as well with the Lake in the back drop on the back 9. The Pro shop and starter were scheduling people out so seemed to be a lot of double bookings. With the recent rains there were a lot of muddy areas.

This course had 3 tournaments that went off in the morning causing my tee time to be delayed by 45 minutes. Since we got pushed back by so much we didn't get to finish the round only got 15 holes in. The starter was very rude like it was our fault that they were busy . I would not recommend giving this course your business.

Had a great round playing in 3 hrs and 45 minutes. The greens had been sanded prior day and may have been posted on line. Greens and most fairways are in pretty good shape and there seems to be quite an effort by all to make your round an enjoyable experience.
