Seriously Overpriced

This course has a great layout unfortunately the conditions are terrible. I have played nice course for $25 and this cost $65. Needless to say I will never return unless there is a serious improvement in conditions. It’s a shame because the course has great potential.

Course was not in good shape but coming off of the COVID 19 closure, most courses aren’t in great condition.

Very disappointed

Don't wasted your time there are so many courses with in 30-45 minutes that are so much better. This course has for at least that last ten years been let go it is in sad shape which is why to every ones surprise they raised rates. Two months ago on a weekend before noon you could paly this course for $35 now they wanted $65 at $35 it was over priced. You are a fool if you golf there now. Check out course in Escondido, Fallbrook , Valley Center and even Oceanside all courses are better and 3/4 of them are less. I really think they are trying to go out of business who ever runs that place is a fool !

Avoid this course

Coming out of the no-play month of April the course was in very poor condition. The greens were a strange combination of cooked out and overgrowth making reasonable putting impossible - no fun.
Charging $55 to walk such a poorly maintained course is a crime. Highly recommend avoiding this course.

Owner letting grass grow

Owner letting grass grow. The greens aren’t even greens. They’re most likely planning to sell this place to build
Houses would be my best guess.

Should close down

Played 18 today - booked on golfnow with cart, showed up and they said carts were cancelled last night and had to ask GolfNow for refund- haven't tried that yet but not holding breath for refund.
Staff were nice enough and only reason course should stay open is so they have jobs- otherwise, they should close down based on course conditions...maybe worse conditions I've ever seen at a course:/

Fun older course. Considering it's still winter, the course is in decent condition. Tee boxes need some attention. Some definitely need leveling. Sand traps are garbage. Still a fun course at a reasonable price.

WORST COURSE WE HAVE EVER PLAYED

Me and three buddies had the day off and decided to try something new. First off the pro shop ( if you would call it that) was absolutely terrible. No clubs, no apparel, minimal selection of balls, the only thing they had plenty of was alcohol. From the moment you walk into the place it just doesn't feel right. The course was in absolute terrible condition, it felt like no one cares about this course and I'm not sure if they even HAVE a maintenance crew. The greens have holes in them, no one fixes their ball marks, the tee boxes had close to no grass. In the end, please don't waste your time or money playing this course, even for the 13 dollar deal they may be offering. Just pick somewhere else. This course needs someone who cares about it, and it definitely shows no one that works there cares. I wish the owner would sell it, it could be a great course if only someone cared at all about it.

Tee to green needs tlc.

Tee boxes seem to be either bare or very uneven. Bunkers are not sandy and some are more like dirt. Greens are spotty with bare patches. Several pin positions were questionable.

Wow. Terrible. Skip!!!

It’s like 10 years ago they just stopped trying and what’s left is a budget experience, terrible staff, and just aweful course conditions. With a little care and attention and money this could be a rad course again. Until then, goat hill is a WAY better option!

Great Day

The first time here had a major discount as they had just aerated the greens and there was mold on the greens, this is virtually gone now. We had played here a couple times within the last year, the course is in very good condition now.

Will definitely come back

Well I used to play here but the course was getting in really bad shape no grass,greens had dirt patches, was trying to find something cheap and decided to give it a try, no really exited because of all the bad reviews . Well the fairways have grass the greens need help but a lot better than a year ago. Got a hot deal on Golfnow and you just can’t beat the price. It’s coming along great really exited to see the course come back to life . It was a great cheap practice round and better than the driving range and almost for the same price of a large bucket of balls.

a cold day out there

the layout of this course is at least a 9....not long, but long enough...play smart and make your putts and you will score....if you try to overplay....you will find trouble...
the only problem with this course is that it is out of the way and does not get enough play to maintain a
manicured course....
