Hello. Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve.

We will continue to look for ways to improve, and we are glad to see you rated the rest of your round great during your game. Thank you for playing San Vicente Golf Resort. We hope to see you again soon.

Nice greens but .......

This course was okay but not the “hidden gem” that it was described to me as. The greens were very nice but overly firm. The fairways were not in good condition although I should add that they were as good as many other courses that we played in the San Diego area over the past few weeks. The layout is challenging although I was somewhat disappointed that even though the location is in rough terrain, the course layout is relatively flat. Overall, I was somewhat disappointed.

Good Weekday Round

My wife and I enjoy the course each time we play. It is very fair to her and mid-handicap golfers.

Greens were fast and rolled true. A few (3-4) tee boxes could use some work. Overall, the fairways were what I expected for the middle of January. A couple evenings of frost may have taken their toll, but, quality lies 90% of the time.

Staff was very courteous. Nice option to call in food/beverage at the turn. Ready and hot in 15 minutes.

We will be back before long.

Sad!

Well when I called to book I was told the course was in good shape! Well it was the worst I've ever seen it! From tee to green it was absolutely horrible...staff is always great..and so is the grill but I came to play golf...save your money and go elsewhere till they reopen next year!

Disappointed

I played this course in June. Was fairly good then. Today, a Sunday, the greens are not mowed! But you want $52 a round? The greens stimp to 8 maybe 8.5. Very shaggy and inconsistent. I played Maderas 2 weeks ago, $79 rate. Greens stimp to 10-11. My playing partner mentions the course may be rebuilt or re worked? I have no reason to return to a course that does not respect the patrons enough to actually MOW the putting greens!

Cosy Course

The location of this course is particular.
If you like quiet and neat course, this is it.
The maintenance is pretty much OK.
And its restaurant has a great cusine.
Valuable course it is.

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.
