San Juan Hills Golf Course is hands down the best price/value in Orange County. Course condition was excellent. The bunkers have real soft sand, unlike some of the more pricier courses. Greens are quick and true.

Great 19th Hole bartender (Jeff) and staff.

Food is always delicious!

Kudos to SJH groundskeepers and staff. A great day to golf indeed.

First time playing SJH. Really enjoyed the round. Played on Monday morning and the pace was excellent. The layout is very good especially the back nine. Can't wait to play here again with a bit of course knowledge. Will definitely be back. The staff are all very friendly but shout out to Ray! Thanks.

I have played this course quite a few times and could never blame a bad swing on anything but lack of skill. This last outing was different as I warmed up well and shot par on the first. Then... we waited at the second box. Then we waited at the third... and fourth.. and fifth... and so on. I couldn't get into a rhythm no matter how hard I tried. On the FOURTH, we were backed up 3 groups deep. I am not sure how that is even possible. I love this course and will play again, but thought to put this on everyone's radar. When the course moves smooth, it is a dream. Let's hope this was just a fluke and the next round will be better.

The staff make it worth going. The pro Ray is a really great guy and gives tips if you ask. The course is in best shape I can remember but the pace was the slowest I remember. Worth the money and a nice day.
