Got a solid twilight deal to play the course while staying at the RBI. Only 65$ after 2pm on the course booking website. Every staff member we encountered were very friendly. Small driving range that is shared by the RBI and country club next door but it got the job done on the warm up. Also small putting green but got to roll a few before kicking off the round. Course was in very good shape, fairways, greens, rough. The amount of beers consumed led to a rougher than usual round for me but I would definitely recommend this course for the price we paid. Enjoyed it!

The golf course was in good shape, even though the greens were aerated 9-10 days prior to the round. Staff was friendly. Beautiful day. Pace of play was four hours for a foursome. Price was reduced - good value. Cannot hit a driver on the range if you hit more than 240 yards. Layout is a bit confusing for first timers. We started on the back nine. The 19th hole was only ok. Give it a try.

This was the first time we played here. The course was in great condition. The fairways were well manicured and the greens were fast and rolled true. Wonderful course layout with some challenging holes. We finished the round in just under 4 1/2 hours. The customer service from everyone we encountered was excellent. It was well worth the money to play here. Definitely recommended.

The round was extremely slow. The staff didn't do anything to speed up the group in front of us that was playing very slow. The course was in ok shape, but not worth the money. Driving range was a joke!

I've played here 3 times in my lifetime and thanks for golf now for making it happen. If it wasn't for golf now discount prices, I couldn't afford playing here at Rancho Bernardo Inn. This golf course is one of my best golf course in North County. I truly believed a lot of players would agree with me. Get out there and play this golf course. You will enjoy it,probably better if you walk it. Greens are superb, fairways are in excelllent shape, bunkers as well.

Good course even though played the first nine holes in the fog (and my tee tme was not particularly early in the morning!). A little too flattish, in particular the second nine holes. In my opinion not a great design even though an enjoyable course. First nine holes definitely better fhan the second nine. Don't think will go again as in the area have played better ones.

Can't say enough about the overall experience playing the RBI. The staff is extreme professional, polite, and friendly. The course is well manicured, and in great condition. This is a resort course, and while most are very busy, and slow, this however ; is not the case here. The times are spaced properly, and our foursome finished in less than 4 hours. I highly recommend you make this course a priority, when in the area.

This course was in great shape, fairways were plush and green w/o any dry spots and the greens were rolling true. Fun course with a decent layout that is fairly wide open. Got away with a few errant drives. Well worth the $65 twilight rate, not sure I would pay the normal $110 rate though.

Started all on the back nine, as the men's club seniors (70-80 yr old's) were having an "event" on the front nine. That "event" resulted in a significant jamb up, pace of play was brutal!

Tee boxes weren't cut down at all. The people that play the course need to remember, replace your divot AND another one every time. Having a ranger on the course for pace of play would have helped the experience. Greens weren't incredibly fast but I liked them 29 putts total on the day. It's a 35-40.00 course all day long. I will admit it's rather tough to figure out even how to check in once you find the appropriate parking. I had to ask 3 different employees to get behind the building to actually check in. I did enjoy the fairways and they had some nice water features. 81 on the day not bad first time out if I catch it on a hot deal I would consider it again. Thanks
