Getting warmer

Great public course, lots of wildlife. Fun design. Greens are about a 10 on the stimp. Bunkers are decent not hard but not soft. This time of the year it’s getting hot so pack extra water and sunscreen. Personally enjoy this courses layout. Fairways and tee boxes are in good shape. They do water the greens during the day so beware to feel the greens for moisture before you putt. They slow down. Only knocks on the course are a sad driving range and the ball washers are always dry.

Great course in quiet countryside

San Vicente is a great course. Not too easy and yet not so difficult that you’re glad when you finish. Quiet countryside with wild turkeys running through course. Helpful staff, friendly snack bar, and good lounge/restaurant for after the round.

Lots of good work being done here. The fairways look awesome, some greens still need some work, most greens are ready. The pace was fast, very enjoyable day. A little bit of drive but you will enjoy your game as long as the weather cooperates.

Great place in the SD East County

Haven’t played here in a while, the course was in great shape, and the views, oh the views!
I had the wrong date for my booking, but Fred at the pro shop was very accommodating and helped me, very friendly and courteous.

Worth the drive

We loved playing San Vicente. The course is in good shape, not too difficult but with enough challenge for the amateur golfer. Tee boxes are a little shaggy, and the greenside bunkers could use some more sand. The staff are friendly and helpful. Wild Turkeys roam the course - if you're lucky you'll get a good show from the males.

Disappointed

I’ve been browsing and playing golf courses in the SD Area for my vacation. In spite of the recent comments regarding the conditions of the course specially the greens I decided to give it a shot.
The course not only is in terrible condition (tell me if you find any grass in the fairway) as the three other people that would be playing with me got there as a foursome. This way I ended up being set to play by myself squeezed between 2 foursomes. Result: 10 minutes waiting for my second shot IN THE FIRST HOLE. And people shooting balls in me.
The only thing not terrible was the treatment given to me when I stopped my round and asked for my money back. The guys from the Pro Shop were polite and never argued.
But not only my experience was terrible but the course is unplayable right now. A shame.

Bautiful course

San Vicente is a fantastic golf course. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The course blends in with the surrounding oak trees and creek bed very well. Lots of beautiful birds around, Including a dozen wild Turkeys that greeted us at the 16th green. The greens definitely need some love and it sounds like they are completely re-doing the greens this Summer. Looking forward to that. Would definitely recommend.
