enjoyable course w/plenty of challenge
Pre-booked our round on line. Walked right up to the 1st tee box; no waiting. Light rain on and off, but cleared up. Course is in decent condition. Greens were in good condition; a lot of undulations Enjoyable round.
Hi, we appreciate you taking the time to review the course and rate us. Thank you for the 4 stars! We aim for a 5-star experience, so we always welcome feedback for improvement. Thank you for playing Carlton Oaks Golf Club.
The course has recovered from the rain and is in good shape. There are still some bare spots, but just move your ball until they recover. One of the best layouts in San Diego County. Friendly staff.
Hi, we appreciate you leaving a review and rating Carlton Oaks Golf Club. We will inform the entire team, so they know their hard work is paying off. Thanks for your patience with the recovering conditions and we look forward to having you back!
There are times that the greens are roll great, but they’ve been very inconsistent with their green speeds. Sometimes they are rolling at a very nice speed, but on days like today, they were agonizingly slow. So slow that I would consider not playing here over another course because I don’t trust that the greens will be a decent speed. If it were more consistent, I would play here more frequently.
Hello, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We appreciate the feedback about your round and are sorry to hear the conditions of the greens weren’t completely up to expectations. We aerified our greens 3 weeks ago, and with that process we slowly lower the mower to cut them shorter. This process is necessary to keep the greens in prime condition for the rest of the season, but understand it can be frustrating when they aren’t up to par. We lower our greens fees each time we aerify and throughout the recovery process. If you’d like to discuss your experience further, please reach out to our head pro Cory at email@example.com. We hope you reconsider returning for another round soon. Thanks for playing Carlton Oaks Golf Club.
Potential potential potential
One of the best layouts, somewhat slinks on the front and classic on the back.
Very challenging but fair.
With some simple fixes, like ball washers, fix railroad ties,yardage markers, upgrade bathrooms,
I know money is always a issue but keeping the fairways green and healthy this course good be in the top five in San Diego .
Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sorry to see that your overall experience was anything short of 5 stars, but we hope you'll give Carlton Oaks Golf Club another try in the near future.
The greens have just been punched so the putting was a challenge. The course has some leftover damage from the rains, but this is really a great layout and fun to play. There is a reason this was Phil's home course. A great place to get a lesson and improve your game.
Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We appreciate the feedback about your round and your patience while the greens heal from aeration. We hope to see you again for another round soon! Thanks for playing Carlton Oaks Golf Club.
Challenging as the rough is thick. Greens were in great condition. A challenging layout. Would play this course anytime.
Hello, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We're happy to hear you enjoyed your round with us and hope to see you again soon! Thanks for playing Carlton Oaks GC.
Everything was great, my only complaint was the price of a beer. $9.00? Come on guys!
Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We're sorry to hear your round with us was anything short of 5-stars. We hope this doesn't deter you for returning for another round soon. Thanks for playing Carlton Oaks GC!
Nice course, needs work though...
Details really, some of the ball washers didn't have handles or towels, some of the tee boxes were just dirt (not dead grass - just dirt); we saw five-somes playing (?) fortunately, they were behind us. This is a nice course, management is complacent though, and needs to attend to the details. Nice clubhouse though and outdoor patio/seating area.
Hello, thanks for the taking the time to leave us constructive feedback. We have forwarded your comments over to our management team for improvements in the future. We hope you consider returning for another round! Thanks for playing Carlton Oaks Golf Club.
Longest Day of golf ever!!
5 hours and 45 minutes to play 18 holes! 3 hours to play front nine. Back 9 was “faster” because two groups in front of us quit in frustration with the SLOW pace of play after 9 holes. No course “Marshall or attendant” was monitoring the pace of play in the time it took my foursome to finish 18 holes. Recent rains have greened up the grass. Greens did not hold approach shots. I will not be returning.
Hello, thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We are going to escalate your feedback to our team so we can make improvements before your next round. We will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing Carlton Oaks Lodge & Country Club, we hope to see you again soon.
SHAME ON YOU - Unprofessional. Unethical. Uncool.
I have NEVER been treated like this at ANY business - golf or non-golf related. Completely unprofessional. I phoned and asked what the 9 hole walking rate would be, I was put on hold while they said "they would ask the pro", they came back on the line and said it would be $27. I said "Great, I'll be there in 10 min." I arrive, go in to pay and explain I had just spoken to someone who told me the PRO said it would be $27 to walk 9. His response, "WE DON'T HAVE A 9 HOLE WALKING RATE!" completely unprofessional and aggressively. Another customer next to me looked at me then looked at the little man behind the counter, not believing his tone with me. I repeated again that the person on the phone told me they confirmed with the pro shop would ask that I pay $27 to walk 9 and it was just 10 minutes ago. "WELL WHO DID YOU TALK TO? WHAT WAS THEIR NAME? CAN YOU PROVE THAT YOU SPOKE TO SOMEONE?" I just laughed and said "Uh, sorry, i don't know all the employee's names, but this is how it played out on the phone... (explaining my conversation)." He said "let me go and ask the pro" (who was sitting in his little office 3 feet away.) He came back in 10 seconds and said it will be $79 to walk 9 holes." I couldn't believe it.
Me: "So you're not going to honor what your course just told me 10 minutes previous?"
Him: "No, we're not."
Me: "So, Im not going to pay $79 to walk 9 holes. I can understand if you can't honor $27, but is there another option?"
Him: "Well, that's the rate to walk 9 holes."
Me: "I'm going to have to go elsewhere if that's your position and attitude."
Him "Go ahead."
What a little unprofessional clown.
I leave, go play at one of the other 200 courses in San Diego, for a much more reasonable 9-hole walking rate and call the course back and spoke to the same person and explain that while I am not at them, this is what they originally quoted me. They apologized, realizing that they were in the wrong, and asked for my number so the pro could call me back to resolve the issue.
NO CALL BACK. Completely unprofessional and unethical golf course.
I will NEVER go back here and will always tell others the same.
I carry a +4 handicap, have played hundreds of courses and have NEVER been treated like that in ANY business. There are SO MANY courses to play locally in San Diego, so why would I ever go back there.
Shame on you Carlton Oaks. Get your act together.
I don't care if you don't have a 9-hole walking rate. If your employees say you do and then say you don't and then act immaturely and rude towards a customer, you're being unprofessional and unethical.
Apologies for any typos - this was written quickly. I don't know the exact date I played even though this form asks you to add one.
we enjoyed our day at Carlton Oaks. good pace of play, employees were working to get course back in shape after the local heavy rains. good day at a good price.
Gotta love it
Late in the Daylight Savings afternoon, shadows creeping across flat fairways, revealing their true undulating nature - doesn’t matter what you shoot, does it? Beautiful golf course recovering from a savage SoCal winter... enjoy
Golf in Santee
Carlton Oaks is always a great experience with a lot of work being done to course. The rains have done a number on many of the fairways but all were playable. Great value thru Hot Deals to secure our tee time.
Thanks for the great review! We appreciate the feedback about your round and hope to see you for another round soon. Thanks for playing Carlton Oaks GC!
The course is good for the right price. There was a lot of ground under repair throughout. The bunkers were hardly sand. Pace of play was good. The course layout is fun and interesting. Some rather challenging holes to be found. Overall if you can get a good deal on the price its worth it.
Hi, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We're sorry to hear your round with us was anything short of 5-stars. Our staff is still working on the course conditions after the recent flooding. We hope this doesn't deter you from returning for another round soon. Thanks for playing Carlton Oaks!
not operated that well
The course had a collegiate tournament that was a shotgun start and they still booked tee times that were going to go off late. The starter did his best but no one in the golf shop seemed to know what was going on. Many irritated local and visiting players were left standing around with no information. Finally the starter left and individuals pretty much paired themselves up and teed off at least 30 minutes or more late. A golf management company could help this property.
Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We're apologize about the confusion with the collegiate tournament during your round. These are not the expectations we strive for and have forwarded your comments over to our management staff. We hope you consider giving us another shot in the future. Thanks for playing.
Course in bad shape
I won't go back. After all the rain we've had, this course should be plush. Nope. Course is in horrible shape. Especially the teas and many of the greens are very blotchy many spots of dead grass. Unbelievable!
I've played this course many times and it used to be in great shape. It's too badly let such a nice course go.
Hello, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We're sorry to hear your round with was anything short of 5-stars. With all the rain we've had recently, we've experienced some flooding on the course that we are working hard to recover from. We appreciate you giving us a shot and once again are sorry the course wasn't up to expectations.
Rain stop ruining the courses
This is a really great course but the rain has beat it up. Play winter rules and have a great time. I have been playing here for over 40 years and still love it. There is mud and bad fairways but just get over it and move your ball.
