The weather was definitely a factor.(rainy, wet, cold and very windy) Friendly staff, pace was great!!! (see weather) Will have to comeback and get revenge on the weather. Love the elevation changes. First time for my buddy, he found a new love with this course.

Played this course for the first time in many years. Enjoyed the pace of play, course conditions, and facilities, Green fees were reasonable. Will definitely make this a "must play" when visiting the San Diego area.

Course was in great shape. Greens were relatively fast but rolled true. Fairways were well manicured and the pace of play was excellent finishing in just under 4 hours.

2, 18 hole courses and a 18 hole executive course that'll test you. Must play and if you don't return for any of these 3 gems, there's always tennis.

I always look forward to playing a round at Willow Glen. The course is always in good condition --especially now after we've had rain.

But most of all, this course has the best sand in the county --well drained, fluffy and deep --every trap!

Sycuan (Willow Glen) has always been a favorite of mine. Today was no exception. The associates are always helpful and friendly and the course remains in good shape even the recent rains did not leave the course in disarray. I wish the holiday golfers would fix their fresh divots/gouges on the greens.

Speaking of the greens they were fairly quick but rolled true, bunker play requires finesse with the soft sand and the fairways were there for the taking all carry until they are completely dry. A couple of holes have area’s under repair but not obtrusive. The carts are outfitted with GPS and a notice that the rates are increasing soon. This is a prime time to purchase the $75 gold club membership card…..not a bad deal if you play Sycuan three or more times a year.

I would recommend this course.

After finding a rambunctious parking lot upon arrival, we were quickly able to confirm our reservation and get started. We had a reservation and did not have to wait to start. The help was great. It was Thanksgiving day and the number of staff people working was reduced. The snack bar was closed, but the refreshment cart came around a couple of times. Tee boxes,fairways and greens were all in good shape. The greens were a bit faster than we were used to,but we quickly adjusted. we would plan to play here again, especially with the GolfNow hot special. Other golfers we met along the way were friendly and very polite. We will be back.
