The Clubhouse staff and snack bar staff were friendly but the player assistants out on the course were very cranky. Multiple times they told us to hurry up even though we were waiting on the group in front of us. They put a single off behind my group of 3. We had the single join us around hole 3 or 4 but they had put a 2 some behind that single so of course they were waiting on us.

Our group plays here 2-3 times a month. The course gets a lot of play and is in very good shape for the amount of lay it gets. The staff is very friendly and their lunch specials are a great incentive. The Marshall's seem to be reluctant to speak to slow players, due to lack of training possibly. Overall I still a good value.

Even though the course was a little brown, the course was definitely playable. I love this golf course for the price and for the quality of the layout. Overall it was excellent.

This is one of the best buys in San Diego. Always ready to test you. The greens are really fast but were putting true. If you score well here you can really put.

I enjoy playing this course but, unfortunately, this course gets a lot of play and it shows. The fairways are in terrible shape and the greens, although played well, need some attention. They claim they are using well water for irrigation - so, can't figure why things are the way they are. At this time, I would stay away.

We had not played this course for nearly a year because of the poor conditions, you know.. dry spots, tee boxes under repair (shortening the holes like number 3), etc..we went back for we were told by the staff that it was much improved... lies and more lies! it is worse than a year ago.. not going back ever, unless they really do something about it... For that price i can play in better courses, easily..

Course was in decent shape right after aerification, Most Greens were in Good Condtion. A lot of gnats on the Back Nine but that has nothing to do with anything just saying.
