We played 9 holes late in the afternoon (3:15) on a Tuesday and had no one in front or behind us. Allowed us to play at our own pace. Played with my 90 year old father-in-law. The handicap flag allowed us to drive right up to his ball on most occasions and the course is well set up for a handicap player.

We've played this course numerous times and normally like it there. When we played yesterday it was very busy and we were lucky to even find a parking spot. The greens were dry and the landscape crew was watering them by hand not even pausing when we were on the greens. This happened many times so we were trying to avoid hitting them, putting through a lot of water, enough to create a rooster tail off our ball and we had to step over and try to avoid hitting the hose while on the greens. It was ridiculous!! Even though we mentioned that we shouldn't have to play around them they continued to be in our way. Also, there are signs stating that dogs are not allowed on the course, although we found two separate people walking their dogs on the course getting in our way. One gentleman with two dogs not even on a leash and another woman walking four (4)! dogs on the cart path. In addition, when we started out a golfer had his dog in the cart with him. These are not aid dogs!!! There were course employees riding around the course several times during the day but apparently they don't enforce the rules. The ladies restroom on the back nine had no running water so you couldn't even flush or wash your hands. This was our most disappointing experience with this golf course ever!!! Too bad, since we had seriously discussed getting a membership there.

Our T-Time was scheduled for 11:36 and it happened exactly on time. First Tee gave us a heads-up of what to expect. The weather was sunny and the temperature was around 65 degrees. The views were exceptional. Tee box was in great shape and the fairways were lush green and cut to perfection. The entire course was in the exact same shape. Despite the heavy rain we had for several days prior, the course had drained extremely well. The greens were all in fantastic condition and the ball ran fast and true. It was really impressive to be in San Diego and see a course in better shape than most of the private clubs! Best value in the entire county for playing experience, challenge, amenities, vistas and price!!

Pace of play was slow because of cart path only, so I walked the back nine. Course conditions were very good, and greens were in good conditions. Only complaint is that the round took a little over 5 hours.

After driving over 45 mins to get there is find out that I'm playing by myself. Rather than match me with another group I get sandwiched between 2 4somes. No options were available to me due to a tournament going on. It was a nice course but was not enjoyable when you travel that far to play golf as a single.

It was Thanksgiving weekend and some badly needed rain was threatening. It arrived on the 18th hole, so there was no indication on where to leave the golf cart, so they just started topile up at the clubhouse. No body was there when we finished.

Course was fun and definately had ups, downs and turns omit. Careful shot placement was essential. We would come back again. Note, it was way out in the countryside, with a scenic drive in between. It was a great day.

Got the green fee from Golfnow hot deals. But the course itself can be compare to or better than premium golf courses that charge premium green fees, like Barona Creek. Staffs are friendly and courteous.
