Worst course in the county!

This course was in horrible condition. I wouldn’t have even paid $11 like senior residents pay to play and we paid$25. Never again!!!. It was a 5 1/2 hr round. Our clothes and legs were full of dirt bc the course is dusty, weedy, and just dried dirt under straw like grass. Greens were acceptable but that was the only redeeming part of the whole experience. The first hole was turned into a par 3 from the normal par 4. The traps had huge mounds of grass around the edges not cut in any uniform manner. It was the worst golf experience I’ve had in years. I went there on a Friday morning. Do not waste your time or money for this cow pasture!

Skip This Course

Ample parking followed by an unnecessarily rude woman working the clubhouse window that didn't honor the GolfNow tee time and rate. Ended up paying an extra $15 to ride per person. Mostly no signage directing you to each hole and tee. The course was in terrible condition with some tee pads missing or made mostly of dirt. The greens were underwatered and filled with brown dead spots. This is one of the cheaper courses in SD for a reason. Spend a few extra bucks and go anywhere else.

Poorly Maintained!

Been to the course a few times and this was my last time. After being closed for a while and a lot of rain early this year, you would think the course would be in great condition. Hitting from the fairway is like hitting from a very used driving range grass. Greens are in terrible shape. I probably would not complain if the price was decent but $40? Pace of play it's so slow, there was two groups of 4 waiting on a Par 5 when we got to the hole. This course has so much potential, new management in real need!!!

conditions poor

so sad, Billy Casper should take his name off this course. From Tee boxes to greens, dirt patches in fairways and on tee boxes, cart paths all dirt, greens were in good condition, very sad, good things, they a guy drive around in golf cart offering players water, but they also were not letting on to some fairways with carts and others only 90 degree, the fairways were rock hard with horrible grass patches with dirt

Chula Vista Golf

The front nine is not as difficult as the back nine. The back nine has a creek that cuts across two or three of the holes. until you learn what clubs keep you out of the creek it can mess you up. Front nine has the same water hazards as back nine but the creek is close to the tee. Larger water hazards are mostly to the right. Tees and greens are in good condition but fairways need to be played with generous winter rules. For the price a good course to play.

Ok not great

Price is great but you get what you pay for. Greens were in good condition and really fast. Tee boxes were good. Fairways were terrible. It was like hitting off a rock. Too many dirt spots in fairway. Great layout but needs to be in better condition.

Hour behind tee times

I have no clue what happened today but a hour behind on our tee time. 3 hour front nine and couldn’t finish. No marshals moving things along. Greens were rolling nice but fairways in need of repair.

Ragged Course but will be Hopefully Repaired Soon

Played on Jan 11, 2020. Pace was a little bit slow as the course allowed 5 people in a group to play before us.
Though greens and bunkers are in good condition,
the overall course condition, particularly fairways, is rather ragged with many bare spots. In this rainy season, hoping all the fairways can be repaired and well maintained. This course is very popular in Chula Vista. If more work is done for maintenance, the course will really deserve playing by more residents.

Links Day

Great links weather in January. Tricky and difficult finding birdies but I found a couple and it was a super time. Tees and fairways are making a comeback but greens were fairly true around the pins. Solid day, thanks CVG.

Great Value

Course is very green right now and in good solid shape. Best value anywhere in San Diego County. Pace of play here all depends on if the group in front of you can play golf or not so it's a crapshoot but the staff are super friendly and the price is right so get out there and play. Cheers!
