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)

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.

After the recent rains, the course looks absolutely amazing. Never remember seeing it this nice. Fairways and greens are pristine. That said, I'll probably avoid playing on weekends if possivle. Had a 1pm tee time and didn't finish. 5 hour pace meant it's got too dark as we finished the 17th so called it a day. Also, only saw the cart girl once and it was a warm day. That said, service was excellent. Pro shop, woman at the bar and the starters were super helpful and friendly. Wish they had a Marshall to keep play going.

The course was in good shape. The pace of play was bad. We left at the 13th hole because it was backed up 2 groups on each hole. First time that happened here , I hope it is the last .. otherwise it's a nice place to play.. FOUR !!

Such a nice course, but the speed is ridiculous!

Why people think they have too play from the tips, if they don't can hit further the 180 yards!

And why people dont fix there f.... divots on the greens?! If you don't find your divot, fix a other one, done!

Thank you team Vineyard

I like the layout though it's fairly short 6000 yards from the white, 6500 from the blues. The greens are very firm. Many of my high wedge shots bounced off the green and didn't leave much of a repairable divet. Should of played a higher spin ball. Sand was in good shape.

We played behind a twosome that was very slow on the front 9. We had 2 beginners in our group ( good course for beginners by the way), the group in front of us picked up the pace and made us look like we were playing slow. The ambassadors were on us telling us to speed up even though we finished at 4 hours 28 minutes. Slightly annoying but the experience was fine for the price. Greens could be better but what do you expect from a mini course.

Second time I've played this course and I really enjoyed it both times. Played from tips which fit my preference of 6500 + yds and slope of 125+.

Great range and practice areas, friendly pro shop and snack bar.

Pace of play was slow but it was a holiday so was understandable but part of problem from my perspective were a lot of "ego" tip players who didn't belong there. I try to stay with a slope of 125-135 regardless of yardage... not sure folks pay attention to slope that much.

Course itself great shape. Links style front 9 with a "mountain" course back nine with elevation changes, so pick your poison!
