Course is great for beginners

Nothing too special about the South course itself, the design is average the conditions vary throughout the year and the greens could be great one month and mediocre the next. But overall the clubhouse and practice facilities are very nice, and the more advanced golfer can play the much nicer and longer North Course.

Great course

Admiral Baker provides a great golf experience at a convenient location. The staff were very friendly and helpful which made getting on the course easy and with no delays. They were very organized on a busy day. Overall, this was one of the best courses I’ve played in San Diego.

I will be playing here much more often.

Perfect weather conditions and greens were in excellent shape. There are some spots on the fairway that need work but overall very good shape.

Fun to play

It’s a fun short course with no houses to hit and not many places to lose a ball for that matter. The greens are well maintained and soft. unlike most concrete hard greens in San Diego. So if you like boming drives and hitting wedges or half wedges or chips to many of the greens this course is for you. The fairways are not so good and the bunkers could use some work. But hey it’s fun and the pace of play is always good during the week. Cheap beer and food and no tax.

Fairways with many dry areas

The greens are in excellent shape, but not so the fairways, many dry areas and other with mud.

Other than that, it is an easy and enjoyable course.

Need some maintenance work

Like the other courses in this area for the time of the year, there are a lot of bare and brown spots without grass on the fairways in the South Course. The greens are OK but need a lot of maintenance wok for the fairways. Layout is confusing. The course needs eye-catching signposts to remark "

Hole Number " or "Path to the next Hole" to guide golfers. I have played this course several times before but this time it was the worst condition to play. Hoping the condition will be improved.

Fun Place to play

It's not a hard course, but if you shoot straight it is fun. Only a couple of holes are difficult, Good place just to enjoy yourself.

Awesome greens, dry spots all over

As my review title states: the greens are awesome, but there are dry (plain dirt) areas all over.. that is the bad part. other than that, it is a dull, little interesting course for is completely flat, no real challenges except for a couple over the water fairways..I guess overall it is OK.
