I truly like this course. You’re surrounded by the timeless beauty of the rolling hills, a nice blend of high/costal desert and plush scenery combined with a wonderful family setting. The associates are very nice and the ladies that run the lower snack facility are worth their weight in gold. My association had the fortune of playing a tournament this weekend and the course was in outstanding shape, tee box to greens and fairways alike. The course had two tournaments going at the same time with no degradation in pace of play, kudo’s to the course administration.

The only negative remark the I have is GPS I think that beauty of the rolling fairways, hidden turns and water vista just inviting your shots to take a plunge, the course needs GPS in the golf carts or course booklets. Other than that you will be hard pressed to find a better maintained and deviously challenging course.

Level tee boxes, green fairways, and soft greens.

Sand traps need actual sand but you don't want to be in there anyway.

Pace of play is slow due to a large number of elderly club members.

Golf course in great condition! Fairways are groomed nicely, putting greens superb. Quite a ways out from San Diego, but nice drive. Weather is perfect this time of year, temperature in mid-70's. Stopped by Barona for a nice dinner after the round.

Really enjoyed this course with my son-in-law and two of my friends. The course is in great shape. Saw wild turkeys...(only birdies I had a chance of hitting). Anyway, great time. And, never had to wait...in fact, never had anyone before or after us wait.

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.

This is one of my favorite tracks and played as good

as it always does, but! the greens were still healing from being punched and did not roll true! But all thing considered, it was a great round and a great time! I will be back!

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.
