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.

Course is one of my favorites in the lower price range in San Diego. However, when I played, the course had just begun what looks like extensive irrigation / drainage work. A few tees were moved to the fairways so as to put the workers out of harms way. Which of course makes the holes a joke. I would call course before you make any plans to play there for next few months.

This was my first time playing San Vicente. What a great layout. Considering we are in a drought the course is in good shape. Greens are very well kept and roll true. I will most defiantly play here again. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Snack bar is well stocked. Overall a great day on the course.
