Always enjoy playing here. Would love it if greens were faster. Having said that, the course has never been better. Maybe the robot on the other end of this can pass that along to the Superintendent. At the end of the round, I am not one to leave without tipping the cart attendants. However, I would appreciate them more if they actually made an attempt to clean the clubs. Unfortunately, this appears to be true just about everywhere.

No impressed with practice range.

Average facility.

Hungry and willing to pay for something healthy.

Just sick of burgers and dogs.

Green conditions need attention.

Fairway Layout were forgiving for most tee offs if the trees didn’t block your next makeup shot.

I was in town for business and had time to get a round in. Rented a decent set of clubs. Pace was a bit slow getting started, but about what you'd expect. Course was in good shape. Greens were a bit slow, but not uncommon for this type of course - and not sure that's always the case. Was paired up with really good people, all the staff was very friendly, and beverage cart attendant took great care of us. Good value. Would definitely go back.

The staff is rude as can be. You couldn’t pay me to play this course again. I will make it a point to tell everybody I come in contact with to stay awa from here. I played wit thre others who are from other countries and they were horrified at the way one of the staff treated us on the course made me embarrassed to call my self an America’s I explained to them that not all Americans were like that. Again thier are plenty of other courses in the area to play. Stay away from this course.

Last year I heard this course was in bad shape. They got a new superintendent this year, and he did a great job. The greens were fast an true but a little bit hard like most of the greens down here this time of the year. The layout was very good. I will be back to play this course again. PS I hope the new superintendent continues his hard work because this could be a great course. It's a good course they're all types of golfers .

In an overpriced market, this course was reasonable with hot deal pricing. Not spectacular, but very well kept, considering we visited less than a year after a major hurricane. Greens were in good condition. The ranger was very helpful. Pace was ok.

My friend and I first played San Carlos about 3 years ago, and it has really improved. Back in 2015 it was mostly brown, definitely in need of some irrigation. But this time it was in very good shape- the fairways are now green, the greens are in great shape also. The green speeds were a little inconsistent, however rolled true. We would definitely return

next season. Great fun.
