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.

Very challenging course since the fairways are very narrow, and it is surrounded by beautiful canyons and cliffs. I will pretty much love to play again in such venue at least once a month. Precision or accuracy, as you wish to call it, is A MUST!. If you don't want to be buying more balls the next day, you'd better not be a person who slices or hooks, for you will be in big problems.

The fairways are well maintained, same as the greens, but the bunkers need a bit of work since they are a bit hard.

Definitely worth the money and the trip from San Diego.

I'm compiling a list of the best courses in the world less than 6,000 yards and you can bet this beauty will be on it.

What Mount Woodson lacks in amenities - no permanent clubhouse or driving range - it makes up for with a really cool golf course and outstanding scenery. There are some outstanding golf holes and thankfully none of the overly long, mundane par 4s that drag down the modern game. This place has charisma. It's got the elements of target golf with ponds and a few large fairway bunkers that are more like waste bunkers. If you can plot your way around and hit a few good wedge shots along the way, you'll shoot your best score of the season at Mount Woodson. What's so criminal about that?

Continues to be the great course it has been. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens all in great shape. Bunkers could use a better quality sand, just a little hard pan in the ones I found. A missed fairway usually results in a lost ball, but all that native growth is beautiful, especially this time of year. Amazing how the course has been worked into the boulders and terrain. We'll be back, as soon as I pick up some new golf balls.

Played it with a friend yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. It's quite short but only par 70 but you won't be walking this course (unless you're part mountain goat). From the green to the next tee is sometimes more than a 1/4 mile. The bridge between 2 and 3 is impressive however. It winds over a canyon with drops in some spots over 50 feet or so. Then the par 3 third is just incredible. You better had worked out any iron problems before you get to the third or your going to lose some golf balls. Overall the course is in great condition. It may be short but it's tight, lots of blind shots, small and very undulating greens. The score card details the difficulties here. At only 5764 yards and par 70 the course rating is 74.5 and slope of 138!! This is no walk in the park ladies and gentlemen. Bring your A game if you plan to play the tips. And bring a friend who's played it before or you'll have NO idea where to hit your tee shot from several tees and you'll have no idea where to miss it. Very tricky course and well worth the price. Great views of the mountains and valleys. Bring your cameras.
