The entire experience was awesome!

First I’ve never played a course with a friendlier more professional staff and I mean everyone. From start to finish everyone we encountered was very nice and helpful.

The course, we started Canyon/Ranch, is in amazing shape and the veiws are absolutely gorgeous. Very challenging but fair and fun layout. The greens are quick with some very tricky breaks.

We liked that 18 so much we paid for a replay to play Vineyards! 27 holes of awesomeness!!

If I could give this course 6 stars, I would! Great day and I’ll definitely be back.

I generally end up at Steele Canyon when I visit my sister in San Diego. I got a great deal through Golfnow - $35 for a 12:15 tee time midweek. The place was empty so I went out as a single and played 18 holes in about 2 1/2 hours. So I went out for another 9 holes and paid $25 for the extra nine. Greens were pretty quick, and the conditions were pretty good. There is a lot of elevation change, and there are definitely some tight driving holes.

WE wish for the price they charge they would have GPS system to make it a bit easier to see some hidden greens/pins.

If no GPS but a paper sourse lay out. We wanted to play canyon course but were denied the privilege.

Overall good place.

I would say this course is a little overrated but definitely one of the top courses in the San Diego area. Greens are some of the best in the area. Just need some work on the fairways and a lot of work on the bunkers. Also some tips on the holes with blind shots wouldn't hurt either for first time players!

Overall a solid course with a great layout. Make sure you play the canyon course. I'd say it has the most character.

Steele Canyon is a challenging and exciting course that equally rewards good shots and punishes poor ones. The views from their numerous elevated tee boxes are dramatic and can be a distraction. Each of three 9 hole courses provide unique experiences that will bring you back for more. It’s worrh it to play more than once.—Cedric P.

Great layout. Fairways a little dry due to the lack of rain and bumpy with recent aeration. One of my favorite courses when visiting San Diego.

Steele canyon has been one of my favorite tracks in San Diego for many years. After having been away for two years and coming back recently, it was great to get back out to Steele canyon and see it in great shape. Pace of play was fantasticStaff was great and course conditions were great. Greens rolled very nicely. My only constructive comment is that sane in the bunkers was quite hard And made it pretty tricky getting out of.

Great course with three 9 hole layouts, but one is about 4 notches below the other two. I have booked this on golfnow three times and every time it is a good nine and a not so good nine. Please just tell me what 2 9’s I am booking just like I get when I call and book.

Thanks for the feedback, unfortunately with 27 holes our tee sheet does vary daily with Member and group outings. Changes in our tee sheet don't always get reflected online. Your best bet is to book your online tee time and then give us a call and ask what courses you are booked on. Sometimes it is possible to accommodate course requests.

I always enjoy a round of golf but this course is very disappointing. Overpriced, fairways in poor condition, pushy starter. Old stuffy golf atmosphere at a subpar course with high prices.

I am a bit thrown by your comments sir. Our course conditions are very good right now and looking at the price you paid that is not even available at our facility. Did you mistake our course for another?
