Course was in great shape. Greens were a little slow but still rolled well. Overall I was very pleased with the conditions. Great value for the money and have always enjoyed playing here.

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!

The course was once again in great condition with excellent greens and interesting hole layouts. It is a little ride from downtown San Diego, but well worth the effort. A great staff and practice range make it even better. A must on any trip to San Diego.

I've played this course twice. My group enjoyed the layout and conditions and fair price, but start times were at least 10 -20 minutes behind and pace of play is extremely slow. Both rounds took 5 hours! I love being on the golf course, but not this long. It would be somewhat understandable if you playing a highly tourist PGA-stop course like Pebble Beach, but for a city course, it's way too slow.

it took three hours to complete nine holes--couldn't take any more of that. at that pace, it begins to affect the game. left after nine holes.

seemed like a good course, but hard to appreciate under those conditions.

It was raing for the first three holes and on and off for the next four. Will play again on a nice day the course was in very nice condition. Greens were fast and true. Some blind second shots but if you go for it a good reward at the end. Par three's fun to hit over water. Surprised at check in seniors get a break on the price.

4 hours 45 minutes. This not what I had in mind as a way to spend my retirement. Group on the green, group in the fairway and a group on the tee box. I was starting to doze off waiting to take a shot. I play 5 times a week and this takes the prize for the longest round. Second place was a 4 hour 15 minute round at St. mark but this extra 30 minutes seemed like eeeeeternity.
