I've always felt that the 2 big boy courses at Sycuan are generally overpriced. However, I've seen some great Hot Deals on Oak Glen recently so I indulged to the amazing tune of $16 at 1pm. Since it wasn't too busy, the starter let me out a half hour early by myself and I was able to finish in 3:15. Course is in great shape and the greens were especially good... medium fast. I believe they are aerating next week so better jump on that Hot Deal!

Had fun on this great course catching up with an old friend. I just wish my drives were a bit straighter, as the fairways are pretty narrow. Beautiful and well maintained course and friendly, attentive staff.

I’m glad that I had a chance to play on 1Apr’17 because Oak provides just the right amount of difficulty the kick start my game. The meandering fairways will lull you into a false sense of security just to tuck you behind a tree, secure your ball in a blanket of sand or gently drop you into a water hazard. I like Sycuan and if I were to claim a home course this is it. The staff treats you as though you are a club member, there carts are very nice and comfortable and the grounds are pristine. The ground crews are top notch in my book. Normally, I don’t provide commentary on the 19th hole but Sycuan has one of the nicest and well-appointed lounges for golfers in addition to their separate restaurant, when in the golfers lounge try the fish-n-chips with smoked vinegar topped off with an ice cold draft. Nough-said!

Course was in great shape. A great walk as well. If you're an avid golfer suggest playing around 2pm, and maybe consider playing your front nine twice. You can get some quality time alone working on your game, Sycuan is great for that. Docked a star cause pace of play can be hit or miss here, literally got paired with a elderly guy who needed 2 drives and a 3 wood to reach a 400 yard par 4, and still came up short. If you have your own foursome this is a hot spot for a fun round.

Greens were slow and far too soft. Majority of pin locations were less than ten feet from edge of green which is really stupid. Not as nice as Willows course, play was slow and never saw a ranger. I believe some overseeding would help the fairways too which were a little sparse in some areas. I didn't like oak trees blocking ball path entrance to several greens either. Not a 4 star course.
