Outstanding People, Outstanding Value

Terrific staff! We travel from Seattle to San Diego often and get a few rounds a year in with this course. We golfed it last Monday and had a terrific experience, as usual. Their service is so great as we were reminded when the gentleman running the clubhouse actually brought our food out to the first green as it took a little longer than expected to prepare and the starter got us out a bit early. You rarely see that level of service commitment from a lower priced course. Of course, the course is not Torrey Pines but it was in great shape. Everything was well maintained and you just can't beat their price. I rate it five stars based on the value equation, which more than delivers. Great job Woods Valley - thank you for your hospitality! See you next trip.

Great course

Overall great course. Pace of play was a bit slow, but at such a great rate I can’t complain.

Bummed the Golf cart GPS system was down..

Nice practice green and driving range.

Fun course. Bring lots of balls

We played this course after a decent rain storm. However, everything was nice and dry. Pace of play was great on the weekend. Be prepared to lose some balls because once they’re gone, they’re gone! Had a great time and would go again.

Horrible experience (beware)

So I went out October 19th at 10:30 a m booked a cheap tee time on GolfNow 31 bucks, show up 10 minutes early to go play and they tell me I can't tee off for 30 minutes, no one's on the T and I could have gone out alone but they let a foursome go out in front of me who came off the back nine. Beware if you book a tee time you'll never go out the time that they give you I think they do this to get you to utilize their driving range or spend money there. Turns out the group that they made me wait for to go in front of me was on their second 18 and apparently they were members there. They treat their GolfNow guests second-rate and the golf course was a 5 and 1/2 hour round. Super slow golf no Marshalls and no drink ladies. Guy at the proshop was super rude and unaccommodating. They try to make up some story oh we don't have enough carts ready or they're charging carts so that I couldn't go out earlier. Bottom line is I had almost a 3-hour front nine and I left after the front 9 it would have been 5 and 1/2 to 6 hours on a Wednesday. I won't be back anybody from golf now will get treated like crap there, BEWARE

This course has great greens. Putting was fun and fair. The fairway grass needs a lot of work done to it. This course needs a lot more watering. The fairways are in terrible condition. There is hardly any fairway grass. I'd like to go back in the spring and find it in better shape.

Not made aware of course condition!

When we booked our Tee time we were not made aware that the course was in the process of Arification and nine of the eighteen holes was closed so we had to play the back nine twice! So obviously the course was not in very good condition. The staff is very friendly and apologetic about the course condition. The course layout is very good and quite challenging. I will come back and play there again when the course is in a playable condition.

Lack of Common Sense

This course used to be a gem, playing there once a month as part of our rotation. We went out on a Sunday morning, usually try to be one of the first groups out. The first two groups out were fivesomes. They held up the entire course. When your the first couple groups out, your the rabbits, meaning play fast. We decided to skip two holes to get in front of both fivesomes. The pro shop said they are fine with fivesomes going out early. We noticed in prior rounds the pace of play has been getting worse. Unless you want a 5+ hour round, you should avoid this course

Wood Valley golf course

It is great to play for the second time and this course,
I really like the challenged on this course specially the 15 and 16 hole the 15 hole you t of on the high level and you don't know where you ball is going to go and on the 16 hole you need to drive you ball 205 yards to cleared to the green, so if you like the challenged this is the course for you . I will give a 9 fro 1 to 10.

Singles Beware!!

If you are a single player you should be wary of playing here. They will say they are trying to find a pairing and then let multiple foursomes tee off in your time slot and immediately after. This was after the starter told me that if I go as a single I would just be running into foursomes. I think I should make that decision and just honor my tee time that I scheduled, showed up 25 minutes early only to be treated like a nobody. This nobody will take his money and his play elsewhere!
