Good twilight rate brought me to this course. Pretty easy/straightforward layout. Greens are a little bumpy but not bad. About what I expected from the course considering the cost. Only downside was the pace. Started at 2:15 and finished at 7.

Course was in good shape. Actually surprised by that considering the high traffic. Pace of play was a bit too slow but I played on a Saturday afternoon so that to be expected. The course was fun with different looks at a lot of holes. Would have to have played the course a few times to go out and should a great score. I'm glad I had the experience of playing the track. If I'm in the area and there is a deal I'll be back

We left after 9 holes. We had to wait at every single hole. The 3-some in front of were chatty, They bought tequila shots and drank them after they teed off so it slowed down the pace of play. By this time there 2 more groups waiting behind us. The marshall drove by but he didn't hurry them up .

Came alone and got paired up with 3 other singles, but still had a good time. Course was packed for noon on a Wednesday, but pace of play still moved rather quickly. Fun course I'd play again

The greens were punched 10 days prior but had a great time in spite of this. This course is the best value in OC and is only getting better with the coming inprovements. I hope they are able to keep their rates reasonable.

San Juan is a fantastic course to play for any range of golfer. The layout rewards accurate play along with forgiving outer edges for shots that err a little off course. The layout is interesting and greens are set usually above eyeline so approach to the flags can be tricky but with lots of green to work with not unapproachable. Course is mid length making Birdie and Par opportunities semi regular if your accurate. Finally the staff are extremely welcoming warm and professional. This has been one of my most enjoyable rounds i have played. Thank you San Juan Hills Golf Club.

I was very excited to play this course again, its been a few years. Unfortunately when I arrived I was informed that the front 9 were closed and wad asked if I mindrd playing the back nine again. I do understand things like this happen but it would have been nice to have been informed atvthe tome of booking about the closure, I woyld hace rather played another course. As for the condition of the greens I think the back 9 were aerated the week before our ball had a lot of hop. When we finished the back 9 and went to the clubhouse for a drink they were blowing sand with 2 blowers on the 18th which sits directly in front of the clubhouse, so you had to walk through a dust storm. Overall disappointed!!

I've played this course once before so I knew what to expect for the course. The staff is completely accommodating and very friendly! They were doing some work on the course so a couple of holes had temporary greens, but overall, it was in good shape. It's challenging but fun! My friends and I will be back for sure!
