Beautiful course.

Would not recommend to any newer or even average golfers.

Many long carries, extremely tight fairways with punishing hazards. I'm an 11 handicapper and at times struggles to have fun out there.

If you're a low handicapper, leave the driver in the car and hop to it. Especially for the hot deal price of $14!!!

Would pay $30 to play here.

Course was in great shape and greens were true. If you have never played this course you have to try it. Holes are unique and all have different layouts. Runs thru the hills and canyons and some of the holes are connected by long wood bridges that really adds charm. Not very long from the white tees but requires straight shots to stay in the fairways.

Played in Mid October -- beautiful day -- course is pretty short and tight, but each hole had a great view. Course was in good condition --greens were true and in great condition.

The staff was friendly and helpful, too.

The only issue with this course is that there's several blind shots where lost balls can result in longer than normal search times, which then can result in a longer than normal round.

But if you sit back and take it all in - and aren't in a rush -- Mt Woodson is an excellent value.

This course will eat you up and spit you out. Tight fairways, sloping greens, sloping fairways, rocks, water and wildlife. Gorgeous layout, one of my favorite to play as it is kicking my backside.

Start you off relatively slow on #1, then BAM, hole 2 is narrow and #3 is impossible. The theme continues until #18 when you finish with a thud.

Wish this course was closer to my house but even the drive through the back roads is fun.

My brother played this once, shot 144 and never played it again. Me? I'll be back soon.

I liked the course very much. Probably a little short even played by the blue tees but on the other side fairways are quite narrow and therefore a lot of accuracy is needed. The other thing I liked is that you never see other players as every hole is not close to the previous one and the next one. Both fairways and greens were in quite good conditions and overall was a lot of fun to play the course, which offers also very nice views. Will definitely go again.

The Mt. Woodson golf course is located between Poway and Ramona off of highway 67, an unusual but beautiful course. Over the last couple of years, ownership has invested significant funds into much needed upgrades and it really shows. The new clubhouse with a full bar, the small but useful driving nets, new on course signage, and greatly improved landscape management make for a truly enjoyable golf outing. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking for a fun and affordable round.

It's not the hardest course but there are holes to test a very good golfer. The layout is beautiful and the scenery is awesome. The course does not get too cute trying to cram in a hole where it shouldn't. You don't stand around watching your foursomes shots because you are gawking at the scenery. The bridge is alone is worth the drive. We loved it.

Best shape I have ever seen this course in. Definitly worth playing a round. Very challenging course but shorter distance than most do if you can keep it straight you will score well.
