Canyon nine was very challenging and vineyard much easier. Enjoyed it.
Never a bad day
Even after all the rain the course was in great shape. Greens were fast and as always tough to read.
For my money the best course in San Diego. I actually became a member I like it so much.
About as good as can be expected for January. Greens were excellent. Fairways need some help.
Real issue is what I got for the price I paid. I'll be spending my money elsewhere.
Winter golf is the best
Weekends are usually slow everywhere except private courses. However, for public places during football season, you can find courses empty where you can complete a round in 4 1/2hrs.
I've played all three courses here so I know the layout. Very challenging and fun. Fairways are a bit arid but the sand & greens we're ok. Twosomes everywhere sped up the pace. Never saw any cartperson or Marshall.
I would always go back because this course is fun to play
Beautiful course with immaculate conditioning
Played Canyon/Ranch combo on Monday, December 17. Great course on a picture perfect day. Pace was excellent and staff unfailingly polite. The course conditions were A+. Fairways were gorgeous and greens were perfect (super quick). I would recommend this course to anyone, though it would be wise to move up a set of tees; somewhat tight at times due to the tracking through canyons. If we're back in San Diego, will definitely play again. GolfAdvisor gave us a bit of discount vs the rates offered by the course.
Course in excellent condition. Challanging lay out. Great SO Cal weather. I recommend you play this course at least once.
Best Course in SD
Easily my favorite course and the best course in San Diego. Despite all the rain the past couple days the course was in amazing condition. You won’t find a better course , tougher challenge or friendlier staff anywhere!
The scenery is amazing!
The greens are in excellent condition, fast (11) and fair. We played the Canyon/Vineyard course and the scenery is amazing. Played ion 4 hours and 15 minutes. Will definitely return.
Beautiful layout and fairways & greens in excellent condition. The very friendly staff let us go out 30 minutes early. We finished our rounds in just under 4 hrs. Would like to play here again in the near future!
Always a good time
Played Ranch Vineyard (Canyon closed), both in great shape. Vineyard greens are really rolling quick!
Another enjoyable round, my favorite course in San Diego.
Very nice course
Played the Black Knight Tee’s at Rancho & Vineyard. Very nice course tucked back in the canyons. True greens, tough pins but forgiving fairways. Don’t be fooled by the short par 4’s and bring an accurate long iron/fairway wood for the par 3’s. Can’t really say a bad thing about this course, even the bunkers were manageable...I’d definitely play again.
Birthday Round revised
I went there on my birthday and some tee times got mixed up. I ended up playing by myself and I left a bad review. I probably shouldn't have and tried to take it down but there is no way for me to do that. I called the online booking site that I use and they told me that they cannot take down any reviews either.
The course called me and made me more than happy. They really seem to care about their customer's happiness.
My birthday round
I booked my tee time online. There was a twosome that had already reserved 7:18am so I joined them. It was my birthday so I wanted to play a nice course, which Steele Canyon definitely is.
Once I'd paid my green fees I went to get my cart and join the other golfers on the tee box. The starter told me that he was going to have to send me out by myself because the people who'd booked 7:18 arrived an hour early and were already playing. I told him that it was my birthday and that I didn't want to play all by myself. He was very nice but there was nobody that he could put me with. So I went back into the pro shop and explained my situation. I wanted a refund so that I could go play at another course and join some other golfers. They had no sympathy for me whatsoever and said that the best that they could do was a raincheck. A RAINCHECK ON MY BIRTHDAY??? I'd just paid 5 minutes ago. So I went back out, got into my cart and played 18 holes all by myself. I caught up with a 3-some but they said they were in a tournament and could not join them. A 3-some caught up with me and told me the same thing. I sent an email to the course telling them what happened and got no reply. I find it hard to believe that they could be so hard up as to not be able to refund me my $84 so that I could play somewhere else. I'm not a member but I do play there occasionally with my friends. I will not be playing there again and neither will my buddies. They should have replied and given me a free round or something because they ruined my birthday.
Great elevated tee shots. if you are hitting your driver well you can score well but if not expect a brute.
I played the Ranch/Vineyard courses. Ranch was pretty easy considering what the slope says (134 from blue combos). The greens were soft and some had a lot of poorly repaired divot marks. The conditions are otherwise fairly nice and the rough is very playable as they don’t really grow it out. I paid around $50 on a GolfNow deal which seemed like a fair price. They use mats for the driving range which is unfortunate but they don’t have much extra space.
Tough Layout but Fun
Steele Canyon is one of the most formidable golf courses in San Diego. It is worth playing here once if you have confidence in golfing. Conversely golfers with high handicap would be fed up with
the layout (by losing so many balls....). The fairway or green is in good shape. Cold water jars are placed at several holes, a drink cart is going around very often and staffs are very helpful. One thing I noticed was "sand traps"' which should be replenished with new sands. Other than that, This course is very enjoyable and satisfactory.
