The course was in good shape and the pace of play was pretty good - 4 hours and 10 minutes. We had to wait for a twosome in front of us a few times that were hacking it up, but other than that it was great.

I am what I would consider to be a regular at Eastlake and have played this course for several years. The course is in the best shape I've seen or played it in nearly 10 years. I have one big issue with this course, the sand traps. They are amongst the worse traps I've seen anywhere in San Diego County, bar none. That said , I can see some improvement, but a quick fix would be to add somemore sand to all of them immediately. I like the course for the price and the staff is great. Keep it going by improving the traps and I think you'll have a gem of a course for everyone to enjoy!!!

Great! We're so happy to hear you loved the course and the conditions were on par. We hear you about the sand traps not being the sandiest they can be, we are working on getting those into shape so they are easier to hit out of. Your feedback is important to us, we can't wait to see you again.

I've played many courses in the San Diego area and I must say that this course was one of the best. The fairways and greens were in excellent condition. Narrow fairways require precise tee shots and small multi level greens require precision approach shots as well. It was a fun day at the course. It was also not over crowded at all. Highly recommend this course.

I played here by first time cause, years ago I've heard bad reviews about this one but, I decided give it a try and I was surprised, Its in AWESOME shape, Fairways are lush and is hard to find a divot, LAY OUT is really encouraging and challenging, is classy, and never gets boring.

The only thing maybe in 16th with a dry pond but its ok.

I recommend this course over bonita, riverwalk and even torrey pines.

I had a chance to play at Eastlake four times in the past two months, two were weekend jaunts with friends and two were with tournaments. One thing that I noticed right off the bat was the shotgun start did not go as advertised, due to non-tournament members being afforded tee times prior to and during the published tee times for our tournament. This happening during one tournament constitutes a mistake two tournaments separate months this becomes bad behavior. I’ll have to tip my hat to one of the Staff members “Nate” for trying to accommodate my group (yes my group both times) as much as he could (8:00 shotgun started 8:21), once again thank you Nate for your outstanding customer service skills, EASTLAKE should really reward you for the extra ordinary effort shown.

The course was in good shape with the exception of the 90+percent of the sand traps, they were almost like playing off of caliche, vice soft, supple powder. As always the fairway first cuts will give you over confidence in your second/approach shots just to make you hit it “FAT” creating well more pain, hit’em straight….

I play a couple times a month and Eastlake is always in the rotation of courses. Weather conditions were great. We tee'd off at 7AM on a Saturday. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were perfect.

I found the green side bunker on the first but was able to get up and down to save par. My only complaint if you want to call it that would be there were a couple bunkers throughout that were a bit muddy from some standing water.

Eastlake is tough to beat for the value of conditions. We will continue to be back.

Love Eastlake, but the bunkers continue to be horrible. Thinking of putting a trowel in my bag to smooth out the "concrete". Except for that, EL continues to be fun, and playable for the average golfer. Greens were a bit shaggy this time but probably due to recent rain? Hope the bunkers can be improved with some real sand. That would make Eastlake a great course.

Bunkers were still in the process of being repaired due to 1.75 inches of rain we received this last Wednesday. Greens side bunkers should be finished by the end of today and fairway bunkers are to be addressed over the next couple of days.

The course was in great shape and the staff was welcoming. However it was extremely slow paced. It took over reacting 5 hours to play around. Makes it extremely difficult to enjoy the round waiting almost 15 minutes for each shot.

Called the shop and was told the greens were 95 % recovered from aeriation and that was correct. The fairways are mostly good for Southern California courses. Bunkers are inconsistent, but at the price point, I've got no complaints. The staff is always friendly. Normally play as a single here and usually meet some nice folks to join. The wind plays a factor in the afternoon, especially on the back side. It's a great course to play.
