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.

I’m an out of towner and got a chance to play here after concluding some business. Overall, excellent value. Great course layout with very nice greens. Greens rolled quite slow from what I’m used to but we’re nice. Fairways could use a mow but again, great condition. Just lost out on some roll. Staff was incredibly attentive and friendly. Range was decent for hitting off a mat. Limited flight balls but perfect for warming up. Also have a nice chipping green and what seemed like a dozen putting greens scattered about. Like I said earlier, it was an excellent value and I’ll be back next time I’m in town.

I have to say I did enjoy the course, however saying that the course is not worth paying 99$ if you have to pay the non-resident price, at best maybe 35-40$,the greens were slow but rolled fairly true, the staff was friendly snack bar just ok

Looked like the greens had just gotten a makeover... No sand on them though! Very bumpy and very ROUGH . Usually the greens are well manicured, not the case during our game. ( Played with my son.)

Were not allowed to drive on any fairways, had to stay on cart paths or on the ROUGH. Even that WAS ROUGH!

The mowers have not been out on this course in days?? Tee boxes, fairways, rough, grasses were extremely high. Course played "all Carry" no roll all day! Not fun playing out of deep thick grasses, even from the middle of the fairway, fringes of the greens, etc. Had I known the conditions, would have past on this "deal"!!

Played on a Sunday afternoon when it was pretty warm, but the breeze came up, as usual, and we had a great day of golf. Brought out of town friends and they thought Oak Glen was a blast. I won't be surprised if we wind up coming back for one of the other Courses in the future.

I really prefer to play the sister course Willow Glenn, but they were punching the greens, so... maybe next time.

Most of the fairways are ok, and the greens are 90% fine, so it makes it an enjoyable course to play,

Will play again soon

All together this place was really fun. It has a good driving range and real nice chipping area. There three putting greens so you can dial in your putting. The course has a good layout, though a couple look a lot like the others. The fairways and greens were in good shape an the ruff was kept at a playable length. I would come back.

The staff in the pro shop and bar we're friendly.

Great facilities, unfortunately there is a certain attitude by some of the staff in the restaurant and Pro-Shop that could be better. If they are serious about having a top notch facility they will need to train the staff, it is important to have good and friendly service in the hospitality industry.
