Enjoyed the layout if the course . Great variety. The condition was very good. Greens are fast and the pins are placed very well (difficult but fair). Greatvalue. I plan on playing it often.
The staff could be friendlier.

Amazing

This course is perfect for any skill level. The views are awesome. It's a tough and challenging course, but well worth it. Definitely humbling. The staff (John) in the Pro-Shop are great. Very patient and knowledgeable. I can't wait to get back and shoot better.

Laid-Back SoCal Fun

First time at the course, in from Florida, who knows what you’ll find...but the Destroyer course was a lot of fun! The pro shop staff was welcoming, and found out the course is run by Navy MWR. Most all the clothing was on sale at great prices. The restaurant in the clubhouse was full of good food at great prices with friendly staff; same for the snack shop on the 12th hole (lunch for 2 and snacks for $17).

The course layout had more elevation into the greens than they appeared. Add at least one club if into any sort of wind. The course was aerated about a month ago according to our playing partner, Robin - who is a local and quite the player! - but you couldn’t tell. The greens were a touch soft and slow, but rolled true, the fairways were clean, and the rough was lush and thick.

The pace (4:40) wasn’t what I’m used to (sub 4 hour rounds) but we were a few groups behind a men’s league event.

I look forward to a return visit!

Never disappointed.

A little worry about game flow, pace. There are tournaments ahead of us but it doesn’t bother at all. Windy little bit late afternoon but overall course conditions are good. I want to come again definitely.
