I have been playing St Mark's for about a month and a half now (weekends) and played 18 holes for the first time January 1rst. I went out with a couple local members and they could not have been nicer and shared course knowledge as we played which was very helpful. The course was not perfect but a lot better than most other courses in the area. that was only due to it being winter, so I knew what to expect. The other thing I noticed was how nice the staff was and I mean the entire staff from the pro-shop, cart guys and the restaurant, everyone was great and I could not say enough as to how nice they were. The experience was top notch!

I usually play in the morning to avoid slow play but at this course this doesn't help. 5 hour rounds. This could be solved with a Marshall but never see them. The course is a good value if you don't mind slow play.

Fairways are being repaired but I think they are doing a good job repairing bare spots. At no point did I consder the fairway conditions as being a distraction. Greens in great shape, super fast but true and a good challenge. My biggest complaint was there was no marshall making sure people were keeping pace. Got stuck behind a foursome who were painfully slow with nobody telling them to speed up. 4 hours 40 minutes to play 18 holes was painful.

This was the second time we played. The front nine went very smoothly. When we got to the back nine, we were backed up. Some people had ate lunch and then continued. They let a single guy go ahead of them. While we were waiting another single guy came. We told him we were backed up, so he went around us and the other people and skipped the 10th tee. We only had to wait a couple of minutes on the back nine to tee off. The greens were in good condition. I even saw a worker whistling while he worked. He must love his job. It was an enjoyable afternoon. We played in 4 hours.

Nice course in north San Diego county.

Some thin and wet spots but overall a good bargain for the price.

Be prepared for the 606 yard par 5 from the championship tees.

They are really upgrading the facilities like the bar, restaurant, cart paths, carts, etc. but the course is in terrible shape. Fairways are a mess, poor sand in the bunkers, and the greens are not in good shape even though they aerated a month ago. Not sure what is going on with the course conditions but not worth the money.

Got there early told to wait for assigned tee time. No one teed off for at least 15 minutes. Then a walking 4, a single and 2 seperate two sums. Finally just went ahead to tee with my partner and joined single for a 3 sum. Would have been happier to tee off upon arrival when no one else around. The whole time no names were called as to who was next on tee as I was instructed when I checked in.

This is a very nice course, a little narrow with houses all around. My buddy hit about three. But the grass off the fairways is what you have to look out for. I hit a drive on #12 and had to drive back to find it. It dove into the grass and I couldn't get a club on the ball. Very penal if you are off the fairway. The greens were fantastic but the course was a little wet and soggy.

A couple very challenging holes are out there. It's a fun course, just stay in the fairway.

Vert fun but challenging course with equal number of shaping holes. What I mean is that some holes you need to draw and others you need to fade with no discrimination. If you take some chances you can score well but of course the opposite could happen.

St. Marks has undergone significant improvements in the past couple of years under new ownership. The facilities have been upgraded and the staff is courteous and attentive, unlike past years. I think is a good but not great layout. Course conditions are much improved. The greens are still a bit slow. Golf carts need replacement.

This course was just ok for me. Although it was in nice shape and had nice views it was a bit too frustrating. The greens were very soggy and we played thru a few holes because it was too muddy. I can hold my own on the long holes and I frequently can get to the green in two shots on a par 4. But most of the long holes here were WAY too long. It took forever to get to the green and I had plenty of nice clean shots to get down there. Just too frustrating for me.
