The tee times changed when we got to the course we had to wait 35 minutes. Barely had time for the last hole.

Green, friendly, fun

A fun executive course with a bit of water, rocks and trees to make it interesting. Inviting resort feel and all the amenities. It' was a hot day but there was enough breeze to make it bearable. Our new favorite course!!

Great for high handicappers

Went out with 22 year old son; both of us high handicappers. Course had relatively fast greens today, and overall despite heat most of the course in very good shape. Pace was fantastic, and Tom the starter did a nice job putting out smaller parties earlier.

3 par course

I have golfed there more than 100 days. When we golfed, we discovered that SDGE was working on the electric lines. We were fearful of hitting the guys working, so we didn't get to play on 3 holes. The thing that bothered me the most was when we got to our second shot. My friend was waiting to hit because a man was mowing at the hole. I know that he saw us, but he continued to mow and went around another time while she was waiting to hit. I told her I thought he was very rude. She said if we were a man or if her husband was there he wouldn't have done that. There were 3 mowers going around so it was very noisy. When we were finished we told the starter about SDGE and he apologized. He was supposed to tell us beforehand. He was very kind, so we didn't go in and complain. I have golfed there so many times and this was by far my worst experience. I won't be going back any time soon.

Great Course for kids

Took my little brother here for his 14th birthday and first time golfing. We had a great time, but the course was extremely small and easy. I never used anything but my pitching wedge and he never went higher than a 9 iron. Great course for perfecting short game and great beginner course for kids to build confidence.

Great if you're staying there!

Resort 18 hole short course. Easy to get tee time. Can easily play early or late golf fast. A great follow-up round after playing
the on- site short par 3, 18 hole Oaks course. Great for 10 yrs+ Jr. golfers.

Fun course to play

Although this course is enjoyable, and challenging, there are better deals out there for other courses. The pace of play was extremely slow, being held up by a group who really didn't know how to golf. The staff refused to address it, by suggesting that the three groups that had backed up as a result, be allowed to play through. When we mentioned our frustration to the Club House when done, they didn't seem to think it was a problem.

Love this course

Course is awesome and has some really nice holes. Love the 9th hole off the tips. Such a challenging decision but well worth the reward of hitting the right club to lay up in the right location, whether you go as far close to the car path or if you enjoy going right over the water, its such a great view from up top and hitting over the water.

Killer value

I've been playing this course for a decade. They are my go to if I want a quick round. It usually plays 62. It's an amazing value and the holes while not terribly challenging are genuinely fun. Rolling hills provide a dynamic experience that never leaves me feeling like I played a short course. Give it a go and you will definitely add it to your regular rotation.

Good sunny location.

Met some new friends at the course to play an afternoon round. Enjoyed the variety of terrains on the course. Just enough challenge to make me want to come back.

Poor weather

Wet course

Was nice to get a reply. It wasn't what I was looking for. Yes I paid for a round, but the conditions were not how we like to play. The bottom line you can't really help so I guess I'll have to just eat the loss of what I paid or hopefully maybe the course will keep me in mind and let me play another day when the weather is better for older folks. Someone has the money, I hope they enjoy it. I do enjoy the use of Golf Now to get a lower rate than paying at the course. I have noticed that you have a "New" way to charge to have a tee time. It used to be the $4.98 to book and pay at the course, but now is seems you/I pay the whole thing to you. I had paid the $4.98 and got to the conditions were the same and I eat the $.4.98. That was OK, but $58.98 is not something to give up. Thank you.

Golf at Welk Resort

Fairways were in fairly good condition but the greens were excellent. Pace of play, even as a single was very good, only waited on the twosome in front of me a couple of times throughout the round.
