For winter conditions i expected the course to be a little greener. I guess the water shortages in CA are taking their toll on SVGC. Most of the greens are in good shape.

This is a tough course to play the first time. A lot of course knowledge is needed to keep your score low. #18 is a fantastic finishing hole that provides a reward for the golfer that grips it & rips it from the elevated tee box.

It was prime time so it was a relatively slow round. Very interesting layout, unlike most courses in the area. Fairway grass was mostly very tight so it was really hard to get under the ball. Overall though, a fun course I will play again.

Heard this place was a real gem and it was anything but. The entire course was rough. Patchy hard fairways, greens where ok on some holes. Most of the course feels like a ran down municipal but municipal courses are in better shape. Not like the photos but everywhere is blond right now. This wasn’t the great course we wanted and expected. Won’t be back for a while if ever

We started off at the 14th hole. Interesting way and different. Course was in good condition, greens were good , yet some were water logged. It's definitely a drive, worth it on occasion. Course is tough , yet not overly tough. Staff was great.

We had a great round at San Vicente on a Sunday afternoon. We did tee off about 30 minutes late which put us in danger of not completing 18 holes (we did, but just barely) but after that we had a fun time.

Course is in good condition, especially the bunkers and greens. Not too many bare spots. Ramona is a tough environment to maintain a course perfectly throughout but I thought it was solid and a lot better than some others I've played recently in the East County.

At $28 this was unbeatable.

I was really happy coming here, even though the ride is through a winding road, lots of curves and slow pace, but the course was worth it. We are coming back on the first week of 2018 again.

Greens in great condition, fairways pretty well maintained even though some areas were dry like most courses in California, but it was a good experience.

Course is in good shape, with just a few places under repair. The course layout is odd on some holes and require careful shot placement off the tee. All in all, it was a great day.

It is a nice course mainly because of the difference in each hole. The course requires some work and it appears that they are doing that. Three or four of the greens had a problem around the edges, but overall they were in good condition, even a little on the fast side. Overall, an interesting course.

First time playing here. Staff was excellent and helpful. Enjoyed the course layout. Need to have all shots on the course. Pace of play was slow. Could use a course ranger to keep pace of play moving. We had an 8-some in front of us. Yes, I said eight some with dad's teaching their kids how to play. I'm glad they got out to play, maybe a holiday Friday wasn't the best timing. Yes, I would still play here again. The course condition and layout was that good!
