Fairways were OK plus, tee boxes were less than OK, greens were nice but way too slow, look like they had not been mowed in 3 days! Pro shop allowed a 2 some to cut in front of us on 10 tee.

I have been playing SVGC for many years now. I have never been disappointed. As I live in San Diego and it is in Ramona it can be a bit of a drive, but is worth the trip. Here’s why: they take care of the course, it is always in reasonable shape. Let’s be honest, it’s not an Aviara where you expect everything to be green, this is a desert course that sees a fair amount of play, the staff are very nice, they are a family friendly resort course so they deal with all sorts. This is not the snooty country club set. My partner and I decided we wanted to go around again, Terry, in the pro shop was very honest and obliging with us, and got us off the first tee right away. It was a great day!

Great weather. Good fairways. Reasonably challenging, particularly into the wind.

Greens are a bit bumpy (punched on the 3rd)

Overall, a really good place to play and a nice value.

Best Hot Deal experience at San Vicente. Got there late for an 1152 tee time. Didn’t have to wait to check in. Cart was ready. My friend was ready. She and I played by ourselves. No waiting at all behind another twosome Great weather. Greens were a little slow but the course was in great condition. I would definitely play this course again.

The greens were recently punched so I will give them a pass for that. What I can't excuse is the slow play. This was made worse as there were two fivesomes ahead of us with very slow players....and no marshal to enforce speed of play. If they continue to allow fivesomes I will play elsewhere.

This course offers med length and occasional elevation changes. Though the fairways are wintering, they are I'm good condition. The greens are in quite good shape somewhat fast and putt true. Only course downside would be wet/hard sand traps. Overall, one of the best golfing values around.

First time playing, on first tee joined with a local player, and he really helped on proper targeting. A cold rainy day, but that helped us zip around in 3.5 hours as the course was not crowded. That includes some ball hunting and a short rain break.some dormant areas and dead grass in fajrway, but greens were good. Playing with Jim helped avoid unseen trouble. A fun course. Near Mt. Woodson, another course I liked in previous years. Very pleasant staff in clubhouse, and nice beverage facilities afterwards. Will play again on another San Diego visit! Excellent price with hot deal on golfnow.
