Played Saturday back 9 holes.

Greens a bit splotchy. Looks as if the Poa is in bloom; giving a bumpy ride to the hole even for decently struck puts. Several holes on the back had this while others I felt looked healthy and rolled pretty true Fairways a thin. Rough varies in height from thick to thin. Tee boxes are flat and playable. Bunkers are mixed bag. For most part they are thin and hard packed.

Pace of play was slowish only because I played with a few newer players. Not a problem.

The fact that this is not a really busy course makes it a nice fix for me when the golf bug bites. Mileage will vary per recommendation. At the moment the greens are a bit splotchy so you really can't expect pristine conditions.

Played today a little before the madhouse at twilight.
Greens in good shape. They rolled true with medium/fast speed.
Majority of bunkers were very hard packed. The rest, I was in 4, had good sand in them.
Fairways were a little thin -- typical winter conditions. Tee boxes were flat and playable.
Conditions are the best I have seen. Very impressed and would recommend with some reservations (read below.)

Pace of play was speedy.
Staff was pleasant, fast and very efficient. Chuck you the man!

Have to say though and this is an observation from a walking golfer. You twilight hoppers, I know you want to get in the last hole before sunset. But come on, I let you join me AFTER I walked halfway to my ball and you whistled at me. You were slow getting to the tee box and then you expect me to give way for you. I am trying to finish too. I must be getting old but honestly they did that to me I was pretty pissed off.

Truth of the matter the twilight golfers here will hop holes. It's like they own the place. It's annoying for us golfers who actually showed up early and then they appear; slide into a spacing, play their hole and then bugger off. Saw that happen more than once. I see it all the time with walking golfers at Harbor but you throw in a cart for a single player and it's bloody mayhem.

OK rant over but you get the picture. Conditions good; etiquette quite lousy. Recommend if you show up early enough to avoid the hoppers.

Late to review. Played the back-9 early morning on Saturday.

Greens rolled pretty well with medium pace. Green to green consistency was decent. They rolled true with a nice pace. Bunkers had a thin layer of sand with hard-packed underneath. Fairways had decent coverage. Truthfully a mix of nice to thin lies. your mileage will vary.
Rough cut to same height of fairways. Tee boxes were OK, flath-ish and decent coverage.

Pace of play was brisk. Group I was with was just slow. We were perhaps a hole behind before the first front 9 group reached us on 16.

Overall I was impressed with conditions. It's not a tough course just a decent place with currently decent conditions.

I needed this round to get in my golf fix and with conditions improving it's one of those courses you could play regularly.

Arrived around 11AM and paid $30 Single Walking. They have a deal after 12PM. Course was busy but flowing well. We started as a twosome but were joined by another twosome at hole 2.

Greens in decent shape. Still a little issue with inconsistency from green to green with the occasional bumpiness from the afternoon sun but overall impressed. Greens rolled relatively true with medium speed.

Fairways were mixed bag. Thin lies for the most part but you were occasionally blessed with a decent lie and really BAD lie -- Hole 13 in the fairway I was landlocked on some hard-pan -- not fun.

Bunkers had decent sand. It was hard packed but a decent, playable layer of sand above.

Rough was cut to same height as fairways for most part but also a mixed bag.

Tee boxes were flatish. They did give you enough room behind the tee box to choose a decent flat spot.

Overall pace of play was fast. We kept pace with the two foursomes ahead in carts -- we were two in carts with two walking.

I would say conditions are even with Harbor Park. Not bad for a Muni in the middle of the South Bay.

Played Monday. Gotta love $11 for Twilight. Can't beat that price for a somewhat quick 9 holes at Harbor.

Greens are recovering from aeration. You can see the plugs but they are healing nicely. Greens are a little bumpy from the afternoon sun but for the most part the greens rolled pretty well -- slow but pretty darn well. In fact these greens have improved so much compared to what I remember. Fairways had good coverage. Nary a bald spot. Rough is mix of thick and thin so you get what you get. Bunkers look to be well stocked with a thin layer of clay underneath.

Pace of play rather slow but that was because of the group ahead. Overall was happy with current conditions given the amount of play.

Snuck out with my wife's permission (Hey it was Father's Day after all!)

Pace of play was fast. I was surprised that the course was not as busy as I thought it would be but was thankful. Weather cooperated and was a comfortable 70F even with it cooling towards the end of the round.

I really don't understand why this course gets the occasional bad rep but currently was very impressed with conditions. Greens were receptive with well struck shots. The putts held their line and for the most part were only bumpy towards the end of the day (afternoon sun does that.)

Fairways were lush with nice cushion underneath. Rough was thick, varying in depth from cut to the same height as the fairway to this thick deep thatch that would literally break wrists. Mileage will vary. Expect some hard-pan in the rough. Tee boxes were flat, lush and very playable. Bunkers had sand. They were very firm with wet compact sand. It was easy enough to get under the ball.

Overall very happy with course conditions. They run a tight ship. Pace of play was brilliantly fast. Started around 3pm; finished around 6:30PM for a 3 1/2 hour round on a Sunday?!!!

This is the best I have seen this course. Mind you it's very busy nowadays with the longer days of summer.

Greens medium/fast and the ball will hold their line. Please note that during the late summer days the evening sun will make the greens a little bumpy. If you strike the ball square it should hold it's line well. Fairways had good coverage. Bunkers actually have sand -- decent to fair. Rough is thick to cut to the same height as fairway. Tee boxes are flat.

The course has made a steady improvement. Personally very pleased with conditions. Throw in the fact it's a relatively fast-ish 9 holes and playing in 2 hours or less, it's definitely a better deal. And if you're a Players Card member it's even better.

Played today. Weather was comfortably warm. Conditions pretty darn consistently good. For those that know me, this course is one of my favorite because it's fairly straightforward with great bones. Add some great conditions and this is the makings of a great golf experience locally.

Greens were firm. Held their line well. The pin placements were difficult but fair. I had a blast trying to figure out the breaks. The practice greens reflect what to expect on the course. Fairways had great coverage with a nice cushion underneath. Rough cut to the approximately the same height as the fairways. Bunkers were well stocked with sand.

Course was busy but moving. Consistent conditions was a nice surprise. Dare I say it rivals its neighbor down the street.

All told, I was pleased with the round. Throw in that GK has two GK Coupons I think it's a good deal. Download your GK Coupon for free and enjoy some really good golf.

Definitely recommended

Played Saturday.

Greens are in decent shape. Afternoon sun will affect roll as thatch get a bit bouncy but a well struck putt will ensure you reach the hole and keep the ball on-line long enough to hit your putting line.

Thin lies EVERYWHERE. Left wrist was hurting towards end of round. No cushion underneath so had to change the way I hit the ball and started punching my shots to get by. Rough cut to same height of fairway with bare spots everywhere. Tee boxes were well groomed and level.

Bunkers both fairway and green-side is a mixed match of hard pan, harder pan and just plain concrete. Thin layer of dirt will fool you initially. Take your pick and think of shot as just a normal chip shot instead of trying to blast your ball out of the bunker; hoping to draw enough sand.

Pace of play because even on a Saturday after 11AM it's literally empty was a stunning 3 1/2 H and that was picking up a single here and there on my stroll though the course.

Played Saturday at GK Plays outing and the conditions here were FANTASTIC!!

I don’t really gush about courses, well really only when conditions are great and this was no exception. Given the fact it rained earlier that week the course was still wet but not soaking. The course played a lot longer but the conditions were terrific.

Greens were very consistent. They putted true. They ran for me medium-fast. Fairways were LUSH. Rough was . . . Rough. It was super dense and the ball sat low. Took at little longer to locate my really errant shots but still it didn’t feel like work. Once you figured out how to play your shots the course was easier to play.

Overall I was impressed with the course. It was literally a joy to play even if my game did not show my enthusiasm. Thanks to Johnny for setting this thing up. Definitely a recommended course when you’re in the San Diego/Carlsbad area. Throw in a very attentive staff and you have the makings of a memorable round of golf.

Recommended. Thumbs up!!

Played today with holiday twilight rates, walking.

The course was EMPTY. It took me 4 holes to finally catch the twosome. After that it was slow going.

Greens were surprisingly good. They kept their line, rolled with medium speed. There were a few holes with some sort of fungus but it appears they were treated and the greens are healing. Fairways still a mix of decent to thin lies but they are working on sections so at least there is some headway there. And did I mention the greens were somewhat decent? That was a nice surprise.

Bunkers had a decent amount of sand. Not fluffy but with enough sand to get a club under the ball. I was in 4 bunkers today so I can vouch for at least 4 of them. Tee boxes were flat.

As I said it was slow going after about 4 holes. Being a walking single I was constantly waiting on shots as it was backed up after 4 and the group ahead just plain ignored me LOL. Just a friendly word of advice, if you have to wait on your shots because of the group ahead why not ask the group behind to join you? You could get the spacing you need so you won't have to wait on every single shot. Just saying.

It's getting darker faster and I finished in the dark but hey it was golf; the conditions were decent, and I was striking the ball well and the greens were easy enough to read and predict. I suppose that is the biggest takeaway here. I chose my spots and hit them on the greens so if I missed it was operator error and not the greens' fault.

Well decided to gamble on this local course. Played only the front 9 because of time constraints.

Greens are improving but loads of bare spots. Holes 4,6, and 9 come to mind. The greens are bumpy to slightly smooth in the afternoon sun. The greens do not run entirely true with medium/slow speed.

Fairways are THIN. I always aim for the green parts of the fairway but even the greenish fairways are still thinning. Rough cut to same height as fairways. Bunkers look playable. Tees are OK and for the most part flat.

Pace of play was slow but only because I played behind Juniors during a match. That and my playing partner really should pay attention to his etiquette. I mean casting your shadow over my ball and path to the hole with a flag waving in the wind can be kinda annoying LOL. (He did this not once but twice.) But not fault of the course. Squarely the fact that some golfers really should pay attention to happenings of their WHOLE round of golf instead of just their really poor game play. Just a little venting here, those that know me I swear like a sailor. But yelling obscenities LMAO... can be unnerving to your playing partners -- especially if I don't know you from Adam.
