The course was an absolute free-for-all on Sunday. Players spaced out too close together. No marshals on the course to aid pace of play. A twosome rider group should not be booked after a foursome walking group. Zero help from staff, as they claim that no "managers" are staffed on Sundays, which I find very hard to believe. We golf here fairly often and will not return.

Nicer executive course for short game work over 18-holes. A few holes mixed-in to break-out mid-range irons. Course could use a few next hole course markers for 1st timers.

All three of the courses are in very good condition.

Pine is a par 3 course to sharpen your iorn and wedge play. Sycaun is expensive, unless you find a discount deal of some kind.

This was my first time playing the Par 3 course at Sycuan. I've played the championship courses (willow and glen) a couple of times each before. I appreciated that the quality was only a few notches below the other two courses. It's nice to see that the management cares also for the course that caters to novice golfers and those who wish to work on short irons, chipping, and putting.

The layout was more interesting than I expected and as a 10 handicapper playing with a less experienced golfer I was pleased that there were several 140-180 yard par three's. My main issue was that the blue tee boxes are not officially in use since the blue markers are not placed. That said, I played the "back" tees anyway. Frustratingly, there are no tee distance markers to show the reference point for the posted yardage for either the white or blue tees. To SYCUAN MANAGEMENT: Please install tee reference markers so that golfers can choose correct club without need for rangefinder.

In terms of course conditions, the grass on the trees is anywhere from bad to above average, with some tees having grass that is too long. I only saw one bunker and I didn't go in it so I can't vouch for its quality. The fairways were in decent shape. The greens were in good shape and I felt that if I hit a putt on my line it would go into the hole. The speed of the greens is moderate, which is appropriate for a par 3 course. I plan to play this course again, expecially if I'm booking a round of golf with someone new to the game. If you are looking to play every club in the bag, play one of the other courses.
