I’m on vacation in Carlsbad and made the short drive over to San Marcos to play St. Mark. I played here last year and really like the course.
Some play was going on but not crowded. Two singles joined us. Pace was right around 4.5 hours.
Conditions overall were great. The fairways gave nice lies although the course had numerous wet spots and bare spots throughout. The rough was a challenge but not so thick and long to be unplayable. The bunkers were nice and had ample sand. The tee boxes were inconsistent. Two were placed on a slope with plenty of space on the box for a better placement.
I felt the greens were awesome. They were very receptive in full shots and chips. They were a pleasure to putt on.
Overall, I feel this course is fun and challenging enough without beating you up.

We played Founders as the second 18 of 36 right after playing Victory and teed off around 215. Not much play going on with only a few groups finishing up.
Founders was in much better shape overall compared to Victory. The greens were much softer and much more receptive. The fairways were also in better shape and consistent. They did have numerous bare spots and they did affect play. Sand traps are in very good shape. A few of the tees were set in spots obviously not level but much easier to get a tee in.
Founders is fun, challenging and has great views looking back towards to valley. Definitely worth the greens fee.

We teed off around 915 on 6/1 for a rate of $35 including range balls. The driving range was shrunk down but not many people playing so no issue finding a spot.
I played this course last year and it was in far better shape the previous summer. Conditions were not horrible but the course was dried out all around. Tee boxes were hard as a rock and difficult to get a tee in. Fairways and “rough” had numerous bare spots. The greens were not receptive. As the previous reviewer noted, the rough is nonexistent causing balls to continue rolling.
Pace of play wasn’t an issue and we finished in under 4.5 hours. Overall a fun and challenging course with great scenery.

Finally getting back to playing after a busy season. I chose a course I enjoy and that is fun. Rate was $25 with a cart at 1130.
The course was basically empty with a few people out. I didn’t run into anyone and saw no one behind me.
The course was in $25 shape. Not great but not unplayable. The greens were consistent throughout the round. It was definitely worth the rate and the fact I haven’t played in months made it fun. I wouldn’t go out of my way to play but you could do worse for $25.

I was lucky enough to be part of an awesome GK event Saturday the 25th. Johnny and Pat from Sun City put on a grebe today for all the players.
For $20 you couldn’t do any better than this course. As others have said it’s not a trophy course but man is it fun and in great condition. Really nothing to complain about on the course. A fair mix of varying lengths and hole set up. Really enjoy the chance to score well even if every shot isn’t perfect.
Definitely a course to play now given the awesome conditions and great customer service.

I had the opportunity to play Grayhawk Talon for a $35 rate due to a coworker having the White Tee card. Heck of a deal given the quality of course.
We teed off around 1006 with both courses fairly busy on a Saturday morning. Raptor seemed to have more playing going on than Talon. Only one range was open and it was packed before the round.
Talon is a bit tighter off the tee than Raptor. Still fun, playable and challenging. Talon has some fun holes including the last three holes to finish. Conditions were good but the course had a number of areas marked as GUR. I also noticed a large number of turf replacement throughout the course. A few bunkers were also marked as GUR with free drops. Tee boxes were good with a couple uneven lies and bare spots. Fairways had a number of bare spots but the "summer preferred lie" was invoked by the club. I didn't really have to take advantage of that today but my playing partners did. Bunkers were ok and a bit dried out. Greens were in very good shape and consistent through the round. They were a joy to putt on because of the speed and consistency through the day.
Beverage cart was around quite often and they do have a number of water stations throughout the course.
Grayhawk is the type of course I don't play very often but it's definitely worth it go give Talon a try with current conditions.

I played Aguila 8/18 around noon. Rate off the website was $20. Municipally run course with the bare essentials in regards to customer service but the employees I encountered were friendly and welcoming.
My expectations were pretty low considering the rate and their tee sheet was wide open. They changed once I got to the practice range. Lots of new grass on the range and good targets.
The course was in the best shape tee to green of any I have played this summer. I understand I don’t play the high end courses consistently but man Aguila was in awesome shape.
Fairways had full coverage of grass with zero bare spots. I was amazed to see that this time of year. Greens had been punched recently but putted wonderful and were receptive of well struck shots. Sand traps were awesome. Soft fluffy sand in all the bunkers I was in. You could actually make a swing and not worry about the club bouncing off hard packed dirt.
Overall, this is a course to play given conditions. Not a fancy, high end course but man great conditions.

Received a freebie round at McCormick and teed off around 11 Friday the 10th. The course is located in the middle of the Scottsdale green belt with resorts around the area making it popular with the captive snowbird audience. Not a lot of play going on this morning with the heat and humidity. I had a horrible experience here years ago and have never played since but a free round is a free round.
Bag attendants were very busy with their phones and were unable to greet or assist us with finding a cart. Check in at the shop was quick. Driving range was ok. Range balls were hard as rocks.
The course was in very good summer conditions. Recent storms have given the area a lot of rain. Fairways were in very good shape with almost no bare spots. Not much roll on drives with what seemed like sticky grass. Greens were all consistent with very few ball marks. They accepted shots and chips very well. Tee boxes were level. Most of the sand traps and bunkers were full of water and unplayable.
I would like to have seen either another set of tee boxes or some form of a combo tee set up as the tips were almost 800 yards longer than the next set of tees.
Overall not a real exciting course to play but conditions are very good right now.

I got on Gold course around 130 for a $20 replay rate after playing Red in the morning. Some play going with a couple groups in front of me playing PGA golf without being on the tour.
They have a combo tee now taking some distance off the tips. Distance on the combo is around 7000 yards but give you a chance to shorten some holes. The tips play around 7400 yards.
The course conditions were good. Nice tee boxes all level. The greens were not as well conditioned as the Red course but in good shape. Lots of subtle breaks to play. The course is challenging because of it’s length but straightforward. Some fun holes on the back nine as you play back to the resort. Eighteen is a tough finishing hole.
I would give the Gold course a chance. It’s a great place to grip it and rip it on drives.

I played Wigwam Red as first 18 on Saturday 7/28 around 900am at Wigwam. I was staying there over the weekend and figured why not. Rate was about $30 with included range balls.
The Red course is fun and challenging without killing you. A traditional parkland style course with trees and water in play on a few holes.
The greens were a highlight of the course. Smooth and consistent all day. Fairways were thin as expected this time of year. Sand traps were hard pan dirt and couldn’t be played as normal bunkers.
Pace of play was good with a bit of a logjam around the 12th hole. Played in about 4 hours but could have been finished in 3 1/2 as a three some.
The Red course doesn’t get as much play as the Gold but I think it’s just as fun. I would recommend getting out to Wigwam and give it a shot.

I’m a little behind on reviews as I played Corte Bella on 7/21 around 945. A summer storm rolled through delaying our tee time. Some groups out but not a lot of play on this course in the summer.
Course conditions were mixed. I’ve played Corte Bella many times in the summer and this was the worst I’ve seen. More than the normal summer bare spots on the fairways. We struggled to find grass on most fairways.
Green conditions were poor overall. They had been aerated recently and many of the greens were in bad shape. I’d even say they lost some completely.
Corte Bella is a fun course when conditions are better. I’m not sure if they will improve any more this summer. I don’t think I can recommend playing it any time soon.

Played 7/14 around 945 with a rate of around $40 off their website. Rate included range balls as well as GPS on the carts. Quite a bit of play going on and I started as a single but joined with another twosome after a foursome in front of me decided they didn’t want to let a single play through.
The course was well conditioned for the time of year. Some bare spots on the fairways but they still had grass on them. Recent rains probably helped the situation. Greens were all in good shape and on the slow side. The course provides opportunities to score well as long as you keep it in play. Desert areas and native grass areas protect the course. The back nine is definitely more difficult with some long par 4s. The 18th is a tough finishing hole as a par 5.
As of right now Vistancia is a place to go. The 303 freeway makes it much more accessible.
