My wife and I love this course. It is short, but not a pushover. Interesting mix of holes, all well-maintained. A great course to walk and sharpen your short game. Staff is very friendly. After all, they work in paradise.

We drove by the Lomas Santa Fe Executive course the other day and it looked very pretty from the road so we thought we'd give it a try. It's connected to the full size and private Lomas Santa Fe Country Club so we figured it would be pretty good, for an executive layout. And it was okay. A nice setting, good conditions (other than the very chewed up and occasionally uneven tee boxes) and what appeared initially to be a good variety of holes. However, I wound up hitting the same 52* wedge on 6 or 7 holes that played the same distances despite having a 15-20 yard difference on the score card. There were 16 par 3s and 2 par 4s (both less than 300 yards). There are a few other executive courses in the San Diego area. Tecolote Canyon was pretty beat up everywhere when I played a couple of years ago and Mission Bay was pretty flat and dull. LSF is the best of the three, by far.

Best conditions so far this trip. Even with the aerated greens it is a very well maintained course. The bunkers are very playable which is a nice change from the other 3 courses so far this trip. Great place to bring a beginner for some fun and if you consider yourself a golfer prepare to score well. My only complaint would be the tee box distance markers were constantly off by 15 yards and these are pretty small greens so no matter how they are measured it shouldn't be that far off.

I will return to this couse.

The staff was low key and friendly. The course has a nice layout with easy and challenging holes. It is well maintained and the greens putt true. The pace of play was crisp, a very enjoyable and relaxing round with friends. If using I-805 and I-5, recommend finishing before 3:00pm as the afternoon traffic is nasty. This course is a gem.

Lomas Santa Fe. Is a beautiful course with rolling hills and shade trees. The course is well maintained and one mile from the ocean. We enjoyed the cool breezes. This course is great for practicing the short game, but has 2 par 4s that allow you to use other clubs as well. The putting greens offer challenges for all. We will definately golf there again.

Only complaint was the speed of play. 3.5 hours on an Executive course with many of the holes less than 100 yards will test your patience. Nevertheless, it was a beautiful day, playing with friends from Iowa, and overall, we had an enjoyable time playing golf. Very receptive greens that rolled fairly well. Love the Solana Beach area.

This executive course is rather short, but well kept and can be challenging for those who are used to slugging every shot. This course takes some finesse to score well.

Perfect place for juniors or seniors and the drink cart circulates often!

Very pleasant outing. Great staff and conditions.

Not crowded. Easy pace of play.

Just an all-around good experience my friends and I I hope to repeat often.

There were just enough water hazards to keep it challenging and an ice cold frosty beer reward at the end of the day.

We were visiting the area and thoroughly enjoyed our 18 holes for an executive course. Very friendly staff, got on earlier than our Tee Time. Course is well maintained and only had to wait a few mins on each hole on the back 9. Will return if we are in the area again. BTW I birdied the 17th hole and my husband is still amazed!

Booked at the last minute hoping the inclement weather would hold off (it didn't) but we showed up and played anyway. The sole remaining staff member was gracious enough to bring out a cart as long as we promised to stay on the path, and with no one else in sight we played 18 holes in 2 hours flat. While 4th round play at the nearby Farmers Open was suspended, we powered through the high wind and showers and had a great time.
