Definitely love the layout. The greens vary from hole to hole. Pace for a early Sunday afternoon wasn't bad at all.

I would recommend and play this golf course again.

I know it has been warm, but drowning the course is nonsense. Tees were very patchy, fairways too spongy, greens way too soft and way too slow. This was a very good course last year, but it has turned into a poorly conditioned course. It takes more than water and mowing to make a golf course. I was disappointed earlier this spring as well. I am not sure I will be back.

I do hope the course has a large membership, as it seems they are allowed to do whatever they want. Although the course was in nice shape and enjoyable, playing behind a 5 some is unacceptable. We dealt with it for the last couple of holes on the front thinking our threesome could go by them at the turn. No luck, one member stood on the tee box and waited for 5 minutes until the other 4 finished up at the snack shop, drove right past us to the 10th tee box. I asked if they were seriously not going to let us by as a threesome, their reply was, yes, we've done it the entire front side. Unbelievable. I went to the pro shop, guy acted like, "what do you want me to do about it?" We returned to the 10th tee and completed our round, but if you don't appreciate my business, plenty of other courses that will. Sorry about your customer service. I'll be sure to update all the other social media sites I can about my experience as well.

The difficulty with courses in San Diego are that most of the courses tend to dry out and the grass becomes thin. San Vicente has been good all season but is starting to feel the heat of the long summer and some spots on fairways and greens are heading that direction. They have closed the 15th hole to resod the green and fringe so I don't think that will be open for a couple of weeks.

Beautiful valley between some desert hills. The course is pretty narrow, so very challenging if you're drives aren't usually on the fairway.

Played on a Monday morning, pace was fine until we caught up to several other groups bunched together. We were often waiting at the t's while the group before us tee'ed off because the group before them was still working on the same hole. Didn't see a signal marshal working the pace.

Bunkers also deceiving, many had a thin layer of sand over hard mud - protect your wrists...

Very pretty course, though, good snack bar and pro shop. Friendly staff. Call box at the tee box for 9 to call in your lunch order before making the turn. No Verizon cell signal, so no phone interruptions while playing.

If you're from out of town, or a local and want to play a good track, that's reasonably priced. San Vicente is the course. It's tucked in the corners of Ramona Country Estates..... Highly recommended
