Greens a little slow, bumpy right now. Aside from that, conditions are always legit.

Course was in good shape and the weather was perfect. Unfortunately the pace was slow and there were many times our group was waiting 3 deep on groups to tee off ahead of us. To their credit, we had the marshall come through trying to figure out how to speed up play and check where the bottleneck was.

The course was fun and about moderate difficulty for this beginner. I'd recommend visiting Mon-Thurs for a better paced round.

Using Golf Now my wife and I booked this course hoping some of the good reviews were true, well we were not disappointed. Visiting from Chicago we have played a few courses in this area and this course stands out in terms of condition, layout and price. Greens and fairways were in great shape but the greens were a bit firm making it difficult to hold long shots into the greens. Chipping putting (2) and range are fine. Don't hesitate to book this course.

A beautiful course. I'm not a seasoned player but had a great time. Course isn't easy but was very enjoyable. I played with 2 friends and a single joined us .we all had a great golf day.. (Then went to Orphila and tasted great wines after)

Will definitely return...

Fix you Divots

I have to say the Vineyard at Escondido is a gem tucked away and waiting for the avid golfer to play. The staff are very professional as-well-as knowledgeable, their facilities are clean and inviting. Playing this course was a joy, I actually played this course twice in two weeks (I’m just catching up on the review) and both time I have to give this a the superintendent kudo’s on the course as a whole. Tee to green the course welcomed those nicely shaped shots and rewarded the aggressive but calculated play. The only negative comment that I have is to my fellow golfer’s PLEASE FIX YOUR DIVOTS. Course management goes to great lengths to accommodate golfers of all abilities and the least that we could do is FIX OUR DIVOTS.
