Pala in general

Pala Mesa is not the best course in town but it is pretty well kept up from my experiences. If you want a fasst pace of play get there early. Since it is a resort you get all kinds out there and the later in the day the worse it gets. As are many courses in San Diego and around the world! overall I like the greens, most of the fairways are good with a few spots here and there. will be back plenty of times again!

Diminished over the years

I would like to give a better review, but overall Palo Mesa has the minister over the years from what it once was. The fairways are sparse, sometimes you’re hitting off weeds in the fairway, the greens were good but not what they once were.

We played at a bargain right so it was a good value, but I would never play this course again at the full rate until they make any improvements.

Played and was charged a no show fee three weeks Later

We played golf, and had a nice round and even received a thank you for playing email. Then three weeks later received an email from golf now along with an additional charge for two full golf fees stating we were a no show.

Pala Mesa Resort Golf Course has notified us that you did not arrive at the course for your scheduled tee time on Thursday, September 3, 2020. Pala Mesa Resort Golf Course requests that we collect the green fees for no-show tee time reservations. Your credit card will be charged in the amount of $98.00.

I won’t be returning. Golf now is attempting to authorize a refund, but course isn’t answering their phone this morning.

Fun course!

The course was fun to play with some challenging holes. The tee boxes needs some maintenance and some fairways overall course was average.
We had three players and finish under 4 hours.

No Value

$75 per player?? Less than $40 value max. Terrible condition of all fairways and too slow greens. No value to play paying more than $40. Visited with excitement but extremely disappointed for the conditions of the entire course. The staff are very friendly, though. Don't recommend to anyone for the handicap lower than a bogie player.
