Chula Vista Municipal

This course is a goat ranch. It is in the worst condition of any I’ve played in many years. At $43 for two, it is overpriced. Most of the “fairways” are weeds and dirt. Most of the sand traps are unrated. The greens are acceptable but overall the course is so substandard I would advise people to pass.

Much improvement on the greens, and it looks like most fairways are being aerated.

Great Saturday

CV golf course it’s not a easy course bring lots of golf balls, but it’s very friendly if you hit the fairways, it’s very long no matter what color T’s you play white, blues or black
At the end of the day you will feel like you are a great golfer if you only lose 3 balls, hole 9 par 3 it’s crazy very challenging

Hit straight

Add a foot wedge to your bag

Good layout...with good tee boxes and good greens...not great....not fantastic...just good. Fairways are sad. Even if in the dead middle...you can be laying in bare spot or depression due to clumps of alien "stuff"....so....just don't play it down and be agreeable with bumping the ball to a suitable lie.

Bad Conditions

A month or so ago this course was pretty decent, but it appears that perhaps they're trying to conserve water for the hot days ahead.
The greens are still pretty playable, but the fairways are turning to dirt for the lack of water. It's a shame, because I like playing this golf course and the friendliness of the staff. So I will look somewhere else until the golf course comes back to a better form.
Tried to upload some pictures but it won't allow it.

Hi, Pablo7216916. Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us. We are working to get everything up to par. We have projects ongoing to recovery the fairways and greens. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. We hope to see you again soon.

no excuses

the fairways are poor at best...greens good...tees average to good....nothing less that taking a plow blade to these fairways and mixing with tons and tons of new mulched soil will help these fairways....they are rock hard with about as much dead or bare ground as there is good turf...the only way this is a good deal is getting a cart and green fee for 20 or less...otherwise I will not waste my time again

But there was no control for this behaviour.

So just ok

There is some value here at $33 but the course is in rough shape. Rock hard fairways. The green were better but a few had bare patches. Pace of play was ok 4 1/2 hours but waiting at every hole. There were 2 onesomes ahead of our twosome we caught up and played with one of them. Club could benefit from a starter. Lots of ambassadors on the course checking in and offering water. At this price point you got what you paid for. Overall a good experience, but there are better courses out there.

Crying for help !

This course is a fine layout and the cart fleet is in great condition but otherwise totally in need of a great amount of TLC. Greens were in poor condition even though they were punched and top dressed weeks ago and there has been tons of rain to help them heal. Fairways are hard as a rock and have alternate bare areas and muddy spots. If you play there I would recommend not trying to play the ball down and agree with your partners to move into a good lie. Overall this course needs to have a major refurbishment and is only worth playing with discounted green fees.
