I went to San Diego to get away from the snowy winter of my home town. Barona Creek provided the golfing experience I desperately needed.

The weather tried to ruin the day. Having never played in fog before, I knew it would be interesting. The course itself wouldn't allow a wet foggy day ruin the day. I thoroughly enjoyed the challenging but fair layout that offered a links experience, mixed with Southern California scenery.

Everything was in great shape and the staff was very friendly and helpful. My only complaint was having to fork over another $60 to play another 18 holes that day...but I couldn't resist.

Considering how much we paid to play here, we were disappointed in the overall conditions of the course. Fairways for the most part were brown with many dead patches. Some of the greens were suffering from some sort of problem and were damaged and difficult to putt on. They are shutting down for 10 days early next month. Hopefully the course will be in much better shape come October. One bright point is food and beverage is reasonably priced compared to many other courses. However, at this point, cannot recommend playing here.

Colossal rocks and surrounding hillsides frame the scenic Barona Creek, located a half-hour's drive northeast of San Diego. It's got all the challenge and length (7,448 yards from the tips) of a championship course (it hosted the 2007 Web.com Tour Championship), but I love that it's still fun for everybody else not on a tour of significance. Fairways feel ultra-wide. Gentle elevation changes on the front nine give way to more extremes on the back. The short drivable par 4 at no. 14 and the elevated 15th tee overlooking the entire valley highlight the round. Taking the time to find and play Barona Creek never gets old.
