Barren Fairways

It's obvious there is not much of a budget for this side of the course. Slow death on display.
Under $12, is a great value.

Great Value for a Goat Track

The fairways aren't maintained and have loads of dirt patches but the greens and tee boxes are decent. For $20 I'm in anytime I want to hack it up.

Shouldn't even be open

The fairways were all roped off and understandably so because there was more dirt than grass. Although they weren't charging much to play this course, I think they should simply shut it down because it was not enjoyable at all. I was aiming for the rough just so I could have a hit out of grass.

Great Course!

The golf course is great! My wife and I played the nine hole course and we had a great time. The pro sho guys are ok but the Marshall was super cool! He lost his wife 9 months ago and he is full of life!

Sunset 9, Into the Sunset

Riverwalk is selling off the land where The Sunset 9 (old Friars 9) currently sits. Until they close it completely, they’ve separated all play between the other 2 nines (Mission/Presidio). You can walk up and play the Sunset 9 for around $12 walking, or do GolfNow and get a deal with a cart. It’s a solid value for golf in SD. A quick and cheap nine holes, with solid design elements, but sparse fairways. Everyone can enjoy this 9, but not for long.

Sunset (Friars) 9

Friars 9 is/was one of my favorite courses. It’s sad to see the shape it is in as the owners are going to develop it. Course still plays great and is a really good value. You can get some real hacks out there that can make your round miserable.

What a dump

Management obviously does not care about the course anymore. This used to be one of the better golf courses in San Diego. It is now completely neglected. Fairways are just dirt with a little grass. No mention of greens being aerated before booking. The only positive was that there was no one else on the course on a Saturday morning, so finished 9 holes in about an hour and a half. Will not be returning
