Unbelievably Slow Pace of Play

Beautiful course, but the pace of play was ridiculous. We were over an hour behind our rate of play by the time we finished. Started at noon and did not even finish a full 18 by the time it got dark. We waited at least 15-20 minutes on every hole. Liked the course, but will not be coming back due to how long a round takes. I could not imagine paying 125$ to play here with how overbooked the course is. Save your money and play at Cottonwood down the street instead.

Poor pace of play

This might be my fault for booking this course on a holiday (Veterans Day). Very packed, the Marshall even told us that it was over booked. We gave up on the 13th hole. Not enough carts, had to wait 20 minutes for a cart, lucky we were early. The course was really good, greens played really fast. Other than having to wait 5-10 minutes on every hole, the cart situation, and not finishing the 18 holes I paid for...was a good day!

Dreadful Conditions

I've been playing Sycuan regularly for a few years. The greens are usually somewhat different and bumpy but I tolerate it, because I like the layout.
But as of September, this course is unplayable. The tee boxes are chewed up and full of weeds, the greens are plugging, dead slow and agonizingly bumpy. Not to mention the large scars on just about every surface.

Months if not a year before I'll be back. Casino money must've dried up. Too bad.

Course Condition

The fairways were patchy. The greens were in poor contain. Patchy and very bumpy. Played like a muni course. Would have expected much better from a “resort” course.

Punched greens are healing very slowly

Greens in bad condition after 10 days punch. Bald spots and bumpy. Before punch the greens were great.

Course in terrible condition

Greens and tees in extremely poor condition - not worth the time or money. Other courses have invested during covid-19, this course is the complete opposite and they are still charging high rates. Thoroughly disappointed, needs at least a year for the course to recover from the negligence.

We had a wonderful experience on the course. A very pleasing to the eye design and setting. Greens could have been in better shape.

Course Conditions Worst I Have Experienced Here

I have played here many times over the years and the course conditions I experienced were by far the worst I have seen at Singing Hills. Beginning with the practice area, it is clear that they are no longer maintaining this course in the same way they used to. Fairways were inconsistent, with bare spots and overgrown areas, greens were in poor condition, as were the tee boxes. We had played the Oak course on July 23rd and were sorely disappointed with the conditions there, but Willow was still decent at that time. Now, however, Willow has dropped to the same poor conditions. I will pay half the price and go to Cottonwood 3 miles away for a course in much better condition.

Good course!

As always playing Singing Hills is fun. The course is well maintained and the staff is friendly. The only criticism I have is the cart GPS is so cluttered with messages from the club house that you feel like just turning it off. I had to clear the message at least 40 times for an18 hole round.

disgraceful customer service in proshop

If you like disgraceful customer service in the pro shop, play at sycuan. I arrived an hour earlier than my tee-time and in the interests of playing by myself to avoid contact with the other golfers for covid reasons, I asked to go out earlier Even although there were no golfer's with scheduled tee-times for over an hour prior to my teetime, they would not let me tee off earlier than my scheduled teetime. Obviously sycuan has no interest in promoting customer safety in the current covid environment. So play at sycuan if you want risk your health with covid.

Disappointed all around

This review is for current course conditions and would change if they took care of the course better. I have played here over a dozen times and honestly, this is the worst I've seen it. Maybe it's due to Covid, but considering it is tied to Sycuan Casino, you would think this course would be in better shape. As far as Casino courses go, this one is pretty disappointing. Way too much dirt and different types of grasses in the fairways. What's the point of hitting a fairway if you aren't getting good grass in the fairway. It entirely defeats the purpose. Greens are a little over grown, soft and and slow. Bunker sand is terrible. I'd call it somewhat soft dirt. Overall this course has fallen off consideribly. I would NOT pay for anything other than a twilight rate here. Step your game up Sycuan.
