Love playing Baker North

We always enjoy playing Baker North. Wind makes a good test of golf even more difficult here. Greens were in good shape even though some need to fix their ball marks. Bunkers are good, fairways are mostly good. We had a nice day.

First Time Playing

North Course

I played the South Course last yaer and by comparison, the North Course was funner. I’ve been playing for about 30 years. Although I said the North Course was funner, I just enjoy playing.

Surprisingly good shape

Usually this time of year the course’s fairways and greens are a bit dry. They fairways were in great shape. I was very surprised. This course gets a ton of play. So the greens were a little beat up. Seemed like quite a few people were not fixing their divots. I kept finding my putt in line with someone’s green tantrum marks. Looked like someone kept blading their putter into the green. Sand was in great shape. Wish most courses in San Diego had Sand this nice. Will be back again. We saw a coyote on 8.

One of my favorite courses in the area

As usual, Admiral North was a bit challenging and fun to play. The weather was great, the conditions very OK and the pace of play ideal., never having to wait to tee off for more than 2 minutes.

The course has GPS on their carts as of 8/3/19, but there is also yardage markers all over just in case.

rough

The rough was garbage. The snack bar at turn was closed. Not much water on the course for drinking. Saw cart lady only once, but she was nice. Greens were pock marked and divots not repaired. Played there once before, and expected more. Very disappointed.

generally good conditions

some fairways had bare spots, which we treated as GUR. Greens, tee boxes and bunkers were excellent!
