Rude and money stolen

We have been going to this course for years. We have recently noticed the staff was rude but it was an easy, fun course for the whole fam and ignored them. Today the cart guy told us to be done within an hour after paying for a tee time- which we did. We turned in our cart and forgot our wallet- bonehead move but came right back. The wallet was returned $100 short. My husband was told that he should be happy he got it back. Will not be back or recommending to anyone.

Green are great but not much grass in the fairways. Lots of hard pan and ground under repair.

Election Day Golf

Glad to get out on a weekday, w/ t-time @ 1P. Fairways were soft, with tight lies, often with a little mud on the ball. Traps were good (if you happen to be in them.) Green, too, were soft but speedy and, playing later in the day, really showed spike marks. Overall, a flat, but challenging course. Don't be above the cup.

Love St Mark

One of my favorite San Diego area courses, St Mark is an interesting track with a lot of character. Several very challenging holes offset by some good scoring opportunities. Great amenities and the staff is always helpful and friendly. Beautiful venue I strongly recommend to any golfer looking for a reasonable chance for a good round. Course and greens are almost always in great shape.

St Mark

I played somewhere else with a stranger who recommended this course. Remind me to buy that guy a drink. I really enjoyed this course, there is grass in the fairways, the greens were receptive. It is out of the way for me as I live in S County but worth the trip.

First and LAST time I play here.

I didn't notice that the Golfnow.com price ($36) did not include a cart. (MY mistake.) That was another $20! So at $56.00 this was the WORST value I've experienced in the 1 -1/2 years using Golfnow.com. I have NEVER written a bad review for a Golfnow booking until now. The front nine was a joke! Boring layout with terrible fairways and garbage tee boxes on many holes. Mud bogs all over the fairways and rough areas. Fairways had very little grass in most of the landing areas. You wind up hitting off grass so thin it was like hitting off dirt/mud much of the time. Greens were OK but somewhat bumpy and slow. Back nine had much better layout and better fairway conditions but still had mud areas scattered around the fairways and rough areas. $56 for this course as a "Hot Deal" at 12:50 PM was a total rip off! I wouldn't play here again if it was free!

This is a very nice course; however, there needs to be a lot of maintenance done. They seem to have a problem with their irrigation system and there is a lot of very wet areas where there shouldn't be.
