Very Disappointed

Worst golf experience in over 50 years of golf. We had a 3:30 tee time and did not tee off until 4:15. When we checked in the pro shop said nothing about the course being over-crowded with junior golfers and their parents. We waited on every tee box. After the 8th hole a young "players assistant" came up to us and said we would have to pick up the pace. We left the course right then.

Wunnerful! Wunnerful! Welk!

Had a nice holiday round at Welk. I don't usually play on weekends or holidays but I got the same weekday hot deal rate so it worked out great. Pace of play was pretty good for a holiday and I finished in about 3 1/2 hours. The course was in good shape but the greens were very slow for my standards and I'm not a fast green guy. The staff was very friendly and they let me tee off well before my starting time which is always appreciated.

The best maintained course in Escondido

Highly recommended to anyone who would like to use every club in their bag. A challenge for low handicappers.

Sharpen Your Short Game

This was a great course to sharpen your short game. It allowed you do make different decisions when choosing clubs. Also, was great if you wanted to get a round of golf in but did not want to play a 5 hour round at some of the more crowded courses. The greens were in excellent condition and putting was real fun.

Nice resort

Good place to practice your approach shots ranging 80-120yds. Also practice your short game, chipping, pitching, lobing and putting. Greens were in good condition. Just a little downside where on about 3 holes the power line gets in the line of flight of your tee shot

Great challenge for a beginner

I am a beginner golfer. I have played this course twice and will continue to play here to become a better golfer. I like that it is challenging with lakes, sand traps, trees and some large rocks to maneuver around. Very good for the $$

Good to practice up on your short game

The Course is always well maintained and in very good condition. It is basically a drive chip and put course so if you are looking for something longer this course this is not for you.

Groundskeepers

they bothered us two holes as they were conversing and laughing at length. They saw us but made no attempt to hold it down. This was near the green and next tee box. Two holes prior there was a worker sitting under a tree having a lengthy phone call and the laughing etc. It kept going on. It's too bad.

Greens

This was a lovely course. San Diego, weather was gorgeous. Would have been excellent day except the fact that the greens had just been irrigated! Not one green wasn't cover in sand and holes. Putting was a nightmare!! Also, parts of three bunkers were underwater.
.Which they would make golfers aware of this (Greens) before you book a tee time...

Great Golf Day

Course was in great condition as usual. Was a beautiful day and could ask for anything better. Just one thing though...the greens were probably the hardest and fastest that I have ever played.

The fountains course

This course is always in excellent condition. I was pleased the new yardage markers at the holes. The staff is always very friendly. It's a great value for the money. The pace of play is sometimes a little slow but that's golf. I would definitely play it again. I recommend it to all my friends. I also like the casual atmosphere.
