Interesting layout, some fun and challenging holes. The greens were in bad shape though. I couldn’t make a putt to save my life because the greens were bumpy, lumpy and dry in many places. They were very slow and didn’t role true at all. The back nine is pretty, but I’m probably not coming back unless they do something to improve conditions. Kinda feels like they might not be around too much longer unless something changes. BTW, I had a hot dog at the turn which was microwaved and the bun got melted into the cardboard carrying tray. The best thing was the course was pretty empty so I could hit a couple of practice shots once in a while.....

This course is in horrible condition. I will not go back and will not recommend it to anyone. Greens are patchy with lots of bare spots. Little difference between fairways and rough and not much green grass, mostly brown. Pace of play was good likely because most people don't want to play this course in this condition. Strange thing is the pro shop has nothing for sale. No balls, tees, shoes, hats etc.

Had a very nice Fast great day! A few greens had some issues. The fairways need to be cut. I believe they are trying to get it to grow back from the winter before the first cut of spring. I will always golf there. Very nice course.

this was the first time we played this course in about 4 months. greens have improved since then. a couple of greens still had some rough spots. i play 160 rounds a year and if the course conditions continue to improve, i will be back. for $28 on a saturday morning it is a good deal. it is not a bomb and gouge course.

Some green OK, most had bare patches or signs that the motorcycles had been there. Fairways were not great relative to other North County courses. Price was very reasonable, but I would have rather paid a little more for a better conditioned course. Probably will not play there again for a few years anyway.

Easily the worst course in San Diego. Not worth spending even 10 bucks to play there if you can get it that cheap. It usually sits around 20-35 bucks but you can grab an afternoon tee time at other places that are 1,000,000 times better than this course. Carts are terrible, fairways are HORRIBLE, greens are the worst I’ve ever seen extremely hard and dirt spots all over them. I’ve played there about 5 times and I promised myself I would never go back after the last round 2 years ago. This time I can finally say I will never go back for sure I played 7 holes and left it was such a discusting course. Literally nothing good about it and I’m not a hard critic I just like to get out and play. I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS PLACE IS STILL IN BUSINESS. Go anywhere else. I’m warning you. Terrible. I’ve never written a review on anything before and I probably never will because nothing has or ever will be as horrible as this course I felt it my duty to leave this review and save you money and time and loss of fun.

For a casual round, I love Castle Creek. It’s got short and long holes and elevation changes on the back nine. A few of the greens were spotty but overall the course was in good shape. Pace of play was fine even on a crowded Sunday afternoon. Carts are clean and work well. The fee was low. It’s no country club but a pretty course and great value. The staff is nice and they have a full bar. Worth playing regularly.

The course was wide open tee time 12:08 Friday.

A few greens had some rough patches. Overall course looked good. Fairways could use a mowing. Sometimes couldn't tell if on fairway or just in first layer of rough. Pro shop clerk acted like he did not want to there. Everyone else super friendly.

The condition of the course is very bad. Lots of time and effort wasted on cart paths and the club house by maintenance people who should be out taking care of the course. I am a member for now. I stay because of m friends who still play and work there. LouAnn tries hard and is underpaid but needs help on the golf side. Book keeping is not accurate. Hope this place can stay afloat but looks bad from the outside..
