Played about a year ago and enjoyed it. Finally had an opportunity to return. Aprons were deep and trim, inviting you to putt. Greens were great. Fairways in good shape. Lost only one ball--due to a hook. Never hit off dirt. Some bunkers are strategically placed but only found one. If you walk, as we did, there are more elevation changes than any other executive course I've played in San Diego County (a little hard on my wife's knee). Loved it!

Course was excellent. Well maintained and challenging. The initial check in could be improved. If you haven’t been there before it’s confusing where to go.

Played this course with my wife. Had a great time. The pace of play can be a little slow as most of the holes are par 3's, but it wasn't too bad. We finished all 18 in under 4 hours.

The greens were in excellent conditions. The holes that had fairways were in average, maybe slightly better than average condition. The rough areas lived up to their name, and had some patchy dead spots. The grass in the rough was that Hawaiian grass that grabs your club and twists it making missed shots a severe penalty. My knock on the course conditions is the tee boxes. Granted it is a par 3 course so most are taking irons from the tees, but the tee boxes were not large enough to take that abuse (so they could spread the tees around) and none of them were level with most having mounds and domes on them. It would be nice to see the course re-do the tee boxes making them 2-3 times as large, and leveling them off.

The "clubhouse" is a nice setup. Kind of reminds me of a micro-brewery, but without the brewery. But has that kind of feel. Had a bar, nice patio spaces, overlooking #1 tee and #9 green. The inside also has a simulator where you can hit your driver (there are few holes on the course that you can do this, and really none if you can drive >275yds). The bathrooms were also clean.

I enjoyed playing this course and will probably play it again, but I would look for a GolfNow "Hot Deal". The $23-29 I paid represented an average value IMO.

We played St. Marks executive as a threesome at

noon and finished in about 3 hours.

It is 18 holes, mostly par 3's with some level and

some hillside greens.

The greens were in good condition, fairways had

typical California spotty.

This is a great course for sharpening your short

game.

As usual this course is generally in good condition. However, this time there were several places that were very wet. My new shoes now have a high water mark on them. :(

Other than that and getting behind the slowest three-some ever the day was very enjoyable. We skipped NO. 6 to bypass the threesome since they were three holes behind when they started No.4. A marshal was needed to move them along.

A great day to play golf. We played 18 holes in two hours without any problems. For a public course (par 3) the greens were in excellent condition! A great value for money. If you enjoy walking, you can cut your green fee in half.

I played this course several years ago and didn't like it very much. I heard that it was redone and a new club house was built and decided to try to again. The course is in terrible condition the staff was barely friendly and frankly I'd rather pay a little bit more and play anyone of the other beautiful courses in San Diego.
