Admiral Baker South

Admiral Baker is one of the best values for the price. The greens were in excellent condition and the fairways were looking pretty good. The ruff was up on several holes and you paid the price for hitting in there. Looking forward to playing the North next week and probably have a similar report. Our round was just under 4 hours long which by any standard is acceptable.

Decent

Course is in decent shape for how hot it has been in San Diego this past month. Greens are good. The only negative is the crab grass that is all around the greens and fairways. It’s like hitting on shaggy carpet that your club gets stuck in. Not very fun to hit from. This is the first time that I have played he South course in a few years, so maybe they layed down some new grass. Will probably not play the South again.

Great values

The greens were in great shape and pace of play was good. It did seem that there were several bare spots in most fairways that needed attention. Overall very playable and a good experience from everyone in our foursome.

First Time Playing

The south is a solid course to play, it’s pretty flat but the south fairways are staring to get a little beat up and it seems like more and more people don’t like fixing pitch marks on the greens. It’s shorter than the north course which makes for lower scores since the white tees are the tips for the south. One of the nicest things about this course compared others in San Diego is that it isn’t in top houses so if you hit a bad shot you’ll still probably lose your ball but at least you’re not hitting a house. I like this place a lot and I’ll keep playing there, only down side is that you can’t book as a single unless your a member.

Fore!

Admiral baker South golf course is basically a glorified Municipal. The layout of the course is confusing and not at all receptive to fast play. The greens were atrocious and slow in the fairways were brown and spotty at best. With the layout of the course the word “fore” was yelled at a Minimum of 20 times during our round. It literally became a running joke as to how many times we would hear it. Would not recommend this course as there are many others to play in San Diego.

South, North, both great options

Front nine is pretty easy given the short par 4's and 3 par 5's. Back nine is tough with the run of par 4's you have to go on. Never really need to pull out driver on this course if you can hit any other club consistently straight, 200 yards. Course was in great condition given the summer heat and lack of rain. Bunkers were a problem, as is the case with most courses in San Diego in this price range. Overall, great course and look forward to playing again soon.

Great place to work on your game

This is a great course to make sure you can hit the ball where you want. Fairly forgiving, but with a few challenges.
