Terrible condition of course

We came to this course due to other reviews of it being in great shape. I don't know what others were talking about. We were going to play 36 holes. When we got there the pro shop guy went into a rant about Golf Now and how they shouldn't have had our tee time available and how the course would only be getting the cart fee. Ridiculous. The course is in terrible shape. The greens were way over grown. You literally couldn't get the ball to roll even downhill without way overhitting it. Greens are diseased as well and a good portion of the rough was way over grown. It was a joke. We left after 3 holes and went to San Vicente and played 36 holes and I thoroughly encourage others who are headed out east of San Diego to play SV instead. Warner Springs is a goat ranch with poor service. They don't even try. Will never come back. Spent about $90 for a twosome and we left in disgust without trying to continue past hole 3. Don't waste your time or money

A nice quiet round

Worth the drive... A nice location for a golf course away from everyone. We have the course by ourselves on a hot Saturday morning (except for a group at the 18th), so pace of play was great. The tee box, fareways and greens are OK for SoCal summer and for the price. Lots of wild turkey and cayotes around the area. Not much challenge for single digit handicap but we have a blast.

Course come-back

After a one year hiatus due to poor course conditions, I decided to give WSRR another try after hearing that the course was on the rebound.

I was pleasantly surprised at the improvement. Fairways were very good, the rough was mowed to a manageable height and the greens are now rolling true again. Granted, they aren't as fast as the old days before the sale but they are much faster than one year ago.

The beauty and wildlife haven't changed so give it a try.

Need more maintenance staff.

The rough was jungle like and while the tiny crew is trying to cope with that, the grass in the fairways continues to grow and some fairways will be like normal rough soon. The owner refuses to invest in staff and equipment to keep this course decently maintained. It’s only worth playing when there are hot deals. Would be a great course if the owner wasn’t such a cheapskate and hired more staff and hired a qualified greens superintendent!

Last round of the year

Booked this round to get one last round in for the year. The course is very nice the staff is very friendly. The only draw back is there is not a snack shop, they do have a grill (more of a restaurant) but not a place to pick up snacks and beverages, fortunately there is a gas station with a store next to the parking lot. Overall had a great time as we we're the only ones on the course.

Mow the fairways

Staff was friendly as could be. However I would have to guess the course hasn’t been mowed in weeks. No exaggeration that we struggled finding balls in the fairways. It was irresponsible to charge me to charge me to play in these conditions.

Course needs mowing

I was told the golf course crew was short a few workers

Entire course needed to be cut!!!!!!

Greens are much better than last year or so

When the course is cut it will be enjoyable for many golfers

Needs a little Care!

Love the layout, with some investment this could be a jewel. A nice restaurant and better bar and you would have a great experience.

Disappointed

Use to love playing here. Course needs a lot of work. Looks like they started with improving the sand traps which were in good condition. However you don't play a course because it has nice sand traps. You can tell they are trying to bring the course back to being playable so we will try it again next year.

Work in progress

Lots of ground squirrels have the fairways tore up. Greens have a lot of bald spots due to the Southern California drought. Looks like they are making repairs and improvements, but still needs a lot of work.
