As a local here in San Diego. I was blown away by the poor conditions of Friars 9. The entire fairways are dirt. Had to move ball several times back and off the fairway to find grass..Shocked they charge full price to play this dirt track... Not worth a penny.

If you value your clubs find another course.

I was amazed at how quickly we moved around Mission/Frias, even with a tournament going on. We only saw the cart girl twice and the mobile food truck at the turn closed early . . . too bad . . . I believe there was a wedding. I am closed-minded enough to think it should cater to golfers first but courses have to make money, I guess, and green fees alone does not cut it.

I love the look and layout of this course. I've traveled to San Diego a number of times and have always wanted to play this course. It's moderately difficult but very playable with virtually no gimmicky holes. Plenty of oglegs right and left, creek hazard running through it, and limited number of green side sand traps. I'm a 12 index and I easily relaxed with every shot. I played all three courses on two days and would definitely play here again. The down side is that the condition was less than ideal. The greens were great but some of the fairways were rough. The pace of play on Thursday AM was great, finished in 4 hours, Saturday morning was slow 5 hours.

Greens had been punched which was known before, much damage to traps and other areas due to recent rains, this course was built in a river bottom. Could have been warned about storm damage that had not yet been fixed. Not a very good value.

The course is in pretty bad shape because it experienced quite a bot of flooding recently. The Mission nine is particularly bad. The starter/marshalls also don't seem to have a good handle on routing groups off the multiple nines.

I've played this course several times and have never seen the Friars 9 so beat up. Dirt patches everywhere! Hopefully management can get this fixed asap.

Tee time was originally scheduled for 1222pm and we didn't tee off until 1245pm, pace of play was slow. 5 hour round!

I've played this course many times and usually enjoy it. My most recent round had the worst pace of play I've ever experienced. We started at 1pm and only got through 15 holes in 5 hours. Every hole was backed up at least one group and sometimes 2. The course was in decent shape for the most part, however, a few of the fairways had some bad spots and the rough on some holes was patchy.

P/M courses were in great shape but it was Presidents day and so starting times were delayed and pace of play was terrible. 5 1/2 hr rounds should never happen today. Otherwise it was a fun outing on a nice track.

Been going to this course as a single for over a year now...twice a month. Great track that tests your game, exposes your weaknesses. Now the bad part. (1). There are generally no marshalls...pace of play is very slow, even during the week. Waiting on tee box most of the time. 5 hours is par for the course and that's after not caring after 15 holes. Ended up leaving...playing partners left after 8 holes. (2) Bunkers could use some sand
