This course is amazing!

I golf there every 2 weeks. It is a perfect executive course. I am a novice player and don't hit the ball real far, so it is perfect for me. I enjoy the 4 par 4 holes as well. I think it is perfect for those who like to practice their short game as well.

This is a fun golf course

Enjoyed a day off & the pace was great. They did some aeration on the tee boxes, but the course was in great condition.

Fun course in great condition.

Great executive course. Lots of short par 3’s mixed in with a few short par 4’s. Greens are in great condition and fairways are well maintained. Small restaurant at the course that has good food and specials nightly.

Best par 3

This is a great par 3 course maybe the best in San Diego. That's some good long holes and some challenging short ones.

Great executive course

We were a twosome playing during spring break so play was slow. Have played before and enjoy honing in on our short game skills. Will play again.

Best value

This course is a great confidence booster! Greens are great, tee boxes were beat up in spots. This is a great executive course. Holes are not overly challenging but also not too easy either.
