Course is great for beginners. Very redeeming fairways and no crazy OB areas. Front desk staff was not the friendliest but the cart girl was phenomenal. There’s also not many hazards which made it a plus for me(less lost balls). There weren’t many whiz bang features about the course but it’s great if you want a cheap course for a very fair price. Conveniently located for Rancho/Jamul/El Cajon residents.
Good Fairway and Green Condition
This course was ragged when I played last summer, and I thought $25 would be reasonable as a play fee then. But due to the recent rain, the fairway is surprisingly lush green now and it made every shot easier and comfortable on the fairway today, I hope the course will maintain the current condition through the summer. One thing I was dispirited was that it started to rain heavily before the noon, but the course refused to give me a rain check.
Great bang for your buck
I paid $20 for 18 with cart. Greens are in good shape and are good speed. Even at the reg $35 rate it’s still a great deal. Solid course.
Somee of the womens tee Boxes (i.e. 10, 16, 18) need to be graded flat. There is very little space to stand in a flat area when addressing the ball. Wouldn't take much to grade flat. Fairway 2 has large areas of dirt... would be nice to repair.
A recommendation to avoid and rid course of wet areas, deep track on the dirt cart paths...............use bark spread out. Another course I used to play every week, use bark . It absords wet and moisture, a very good maintenance fix to dirt cart paths.
Could use some work, but for the money.....
The course is in OK shape. The greens were very slow and in only moderately good conditions. The price is very reasonable and you get what you pay for.
Have this played this over the last ten years.What was old but decent Club has fallen on bad times.The Lakes course closed a few years ago nothing but weeds.Th pro shop is just a counter in the once very good restaurant,which is now gone.No starter,slowest carts in the world.The Ivanhoe course is playable and trying to make a come back.But what I understand is the ownership does just enough to keep operating.To me it is almost disrespectful to the game to have a place that once offered a fun golf experience. With a little TLC ie ball washers,yardage markers sand in the bunkers without rocks and paint could bring some pride back to this historic place.
It appears that efforts are being made to improve the course conditions. Thanks!
Good Deal with the coupon
The driving range was in very poor repair, and they no longer have a pro shop.
The course was OK. The coupon deal (two play for $40 with a cart) made it a good deal.
Same old problems........
Got to the 10th and there was a group of 10 playing teeing off...... seriously? We left
6 hours to play 18.
This place books whatever they can get i guess, every time ive gone here in the past 4 months which is about three times i guess, ive played 6 1/2 hours for 18. Get what ya pay for i know, but i will not be golfing here again for a long time. They should feel guilty for charging anything over 40.
It is a shame that what was once a vibrant course with a lot of local support has fallen into such disrepair. What happened to the staff, course repair and restaurant? It just seems that every time you play that it could be your last. We can’t afford to lose another fine course due to poor ownership.
Pace of play was really slow but overall we had a good time
use to be a fun track, but barely hanging on: everything is bare bones and not worth the drive
Course in good condition
I like playing this course very much. The course fairways and greens are in good condition. You can enjoy the course because it's not to difficulty to play.
