Fairways had just been aerated so many clumps still not sifted out yet. Greens putted very well and held nicely. Mostly shorter holes with premium on placement. Risk vs reward options abound. Great value. I’m playing it again in 3 days. Enjoy!

Well Worth It
Perfect spot for a round before the Foreigner concert at Pala casino last night. Back 9 kind of beat me up. Fun rolling hills layout...seemed really difficult, but we loved it!!
Could be good at times i assume, not when i played though
Nice Greens and fairways slow pace
Course is well maintained and in good shape
Pace was very slow, many tee boxes backed up
5 hour round

Conditions were great
This is starting to be one of my favorite courses to play. The conditions of the course were very good.
Ridiculous pin placements
Overall the course was ok. The problem was with the ridiculous pin placements. There were at least 5 pins that were located on the middle of slopes on the greens. Had several uphill putts of 5 feet to the hole that if you missed the ball would literally run 10 feet past you on the way backwards. One green I hit a putt that was uphill and it missed then the ball came back at me and rolled past me all the way off the green 25 feet away. Everyone in our foursome had the same issue's.
I guess the greens keeper had a fight with his wife the night before.
Other than that we had a nice time.

Hello. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sorry to see that your overall experience was anything short of 5 stars, but we hope you'll give us another try in the near future.
New to the course.
Enjoyed the course and all the amenities. Fairways are in excellent shape and greens are very fast. Pin placement made the putting tough. Some tight fairways, however, not too bad overall. Certainly not a flat course. We enjoyed the scenery as well as the course. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
Not what I was expecting
Check in was a little put offish. I asked for a bucket of balls, “ok if you can hit them in 15 minutes, we’re closing the range at 10:15 to pick and mow”. Really, after I’d just paid $50 to play a really rough looking golf course and they can’t pick and mow in the early morning or PM. Starter was great. The greens were deceptive and fast, the rest of the course was substandard. If 15 different grasses grow in southern CA they must have all been on this course. Sand traps were good and fair. Just can’t give this course better than average at best.
Overall course is a little wet but playable well worth the time and would play again
Charging $5 extra to activate GPS
I was told by the head pro that because I booked on Golfnow there would be a $5 charge for him to activate the GPS, even though it clearly states on the Golfnow reservation that "new carts with GPS included". He said because we didn't pay full price GPS is extra. I paid $42 each for 2 of us, similar tee times are available online directly through the course for the same amount, not sure if those times are charged extra.
Starter is not very friendly and will only let you tee off at the designated time even though there is space between groups. How is this supposed to speed pace of play?
Their new GPS system is over controlled and slows pace of play. Get this!? You have to pay extra fee if you want to enable and use the GPS system. Nickle and diming you just like the airlines. What's next?! Charging you extra for scorecards and pencils. NO other golf courses charge extra for any GPS if available. Very petty!!!
Slow and brutal fairways
4:45 minute round, not ideal. The fairways are garbage, you’d have to move your ball to a sparse patch of grass, plus the greens are way to long and slow.
I would recommend this course and won’t play it again.
Hello Wayne, we're sorry you didn't fully enjoy your round. Our goal at Pala Mesa Resort is for every player to enjoy their experience. Thank you for playing, we hope you give us another chance in the future.
