I've played here severa times..Always nice staff and gets us out on time if not early. One thing I would recommend is make sure to check and see if there is a tournament before booking your tee time. This could be a time saver for you if you like your pace of play to be appropriate.

A couple of times I have been right behind tournament play and a 4 hour round ended up being 5 hours.

Longest day of my life on the golf course!!

Paired with three very nice, but physically and athletically challenged seniors. Who simply were unable to keep up with the pace of play.

The marshal did his best to prod them, even pushed a couple of groups through ours, but nothing seemed to motivate these guys to speed it up.

I shot 2 over on the front nine, but mentally I cracked on the back nine shooting a 45!! Just couldn't handle it!!!

Played here several times. Guess it is due to drought the course has become easier to play. No rough anymore. Only complaint, is like most public courses, slow play. My round was 5 hours.

The course was in good shape, despite the high winds!

A couple of tee boxes had some tree issues that could have been solved with some maintenance.

The greens were fast and in great shape.

The hot deal rate was a GREAT value!

Course manager needs to lay off the water making the fairways way mushy. Greens are good but too spongy always.

The course is in decent shape, the greens were running super slow, a bit over watered. The layout is ok, trees everywhere, not to bad. I paid 50 from golf now, but to much. Not my favorite course, over rated.

Oak Glen at Sycuan might just be the best course in San Diego County! The greens are true (not fast and not slow) and the conditions here are perfect. The food on and off the course is great and they don't charge an arm and a leg for beer. Great beer selection as well.....on to the actual course.....

The trick to scoring well on this course is to warm up first so you can score well on holes 1-4. Hole 5 is a monster par 4 over a dry riverbed that requires a 250 yard straight drive to have a chance at the green in 2. Hole 7 is a short par 5 but has a very challenging tee shot (hit a high driver or 3 wood over the trees in front of you) and you are on your way to par....miss the drive and you are in bogeyland. Hole 8 stay to the right side of the fairway. Hole 9 is a challenge if you go right but keep it down the left side of the fairway and enjoy your score. If you can time your round later in the day you will enjoy the serenity of warm late afternoon yellow glow on the back 9. Hole 10 is a long straight par 5 so hopefully your driver has heated up by hole 10. Hole 11 stay left. Hole 12 stay left. Hole 13 hit a 5 iron straight ahead to avoid the water on the left and traps on the right. Hole 14 might be the easiest hole on the course. Hole 15 is a long challenging par 3 so good luck on that one. Hole 16 if you hit it down the left side you shave off 50 yards. Hole 17 you want to favor the left side of the fairway. Hole 18 is a long straight par 5 so keep it straight and you should end with a par. Hole 19 is great too with the food and drinks you would expect from a quality establishment. If the bar is not your style try the restaurant as the food there is top notch for all meals. This resort has the best practice areas in all of San Diego County!!! 5 practice putting greens are scattered throughout the resort as well as 2 bunker practice areas, 2 chipping areas, and a great driving range. The hotel has wonderful rooms and the beds are so comfortable watch out you might miss you tee time. Enjoy this resort as often as you can I know I do. Cheers!

Oak Glen has not changed much over the years. It is a fun track with pretty straightforward shots. What you see is where you put it. Few blind shots. Course in very good condition. Greens seemed slow.

Playing Oak Glen is always a treat. Enough trees to make you think and enough water to make you flinch. However, recent over seeding is the only reason I can think of for the shaggy fairways and greens. Over seeding was weeks ago and the conditions were much better just last week than they were this week. I expected much better this week.
