Played yesterday and finished a little less than 4 1/2 hours. Tees are back to their normal position. Tee boxes do need to be cut a tad but otherwise generally good.

Greens were not punched so they are still pretty firm and rolling. There are quite a few ball marks and i probably fixed 2 or 3 on most greens. Still quick though.

Fairways could also use a little mow too but generally good. Obviously there isn’t much roll and the divots are about half filled and half not.

Some bunkers were raked and some weren’t but decent to hit from. Not the super soft sand that I experienced on the south recently.

Rough is getting thick and growing. If I had remembered I would have taken some pictures and posted to the app. Some areas are already brutal so keep those eyes peeled.

The course is coming around but I still think it needs a little tweaking to justify for a nonresident. Ok for a resident. FYI I was loading my car after the round and a gentleman and his wife walked by and asked how I played. He had a European accent. I told him I played ok and he commented that he played south and thought the conditions were horrible. I told him I played north and that the south is probably a month away before I play it. He said he wish he had known. It’s a shame someone came all that way and now doesn’t have a good memory of this place. One day GK will reach worldwide.....

Greens are just ok. Just way too many ball marks on these greens that have been no repaired correctly or not at all. However the speed of the greens was really good so if they could just get that these would be ranked much better. Also the front of the 5th green was in bad shape. Looks like they put some new grass in there and that needs some time.

Fairways and rough are about as expected from here, a mixed bag. Some decent lies in the fairway and the rough too but there are many dead areas. There were some wet spots out there and I did find a couple of times I did have the dreaded mud ball. The native area of the rough is very very dry. I was looking for a ball in there and it just crumbles as you walk on it.

Sand was actually really great. Most of the bunkers had been raked and plenty of sand in there. No issues here other than I should avoid them next time.

Tee boxes were pretty decent. I always remember #10 being a tee box that was not very level and always pretty beat up. It seemed much more level today and good coverage throughout.

Customer service here was pretty poor today. We teed off after 9 and we were a little late from our time but not a big deal. The issue was the group in front of us was a hole behind after 2 holes. Marshal caught them as we were on the 5th tee box and came up to us and told us that those guys play here 2-3 times a week and they are all over 70. I was pretty shocked that was his way of dealing with this. They did make up some ground during the middle of the round but as we walked up 17 we could see no one was on 18 which is a long par 5 into the wind. There were people driving by in carts past them saying things as other groups called it the day. The single in our group left after 16. I'd say if I were them I'd be pretty embarrassed but these guys did not give a ........ Sadly I don't see myself coming back anytime soon. The only way I do is if I get an early time which probably won't be until next spring.

Played on Monday with a 1:30 tee time and finished right at 4 1/2 hours. Everyone there is really great and friendly. This place always has great service, I’ve never had any issues with the employees here.

Place is looking good and should get better. Note the par 3 tee boxes are overseeded so they have moved 3 of them up and #7 is back. They look like they could be open soon. They looked very green. The other tee boxes are in good shape as well, no issues there.

Green was soft and towards the end of the round it started to show with some ball marks and spike marks, etc. They rolled decently however. Not the fastest I’ve seen here and with some of the pin placements thank goodness.

Fairways good too. Generally good lies all around with just a few areas being maintained still. Some decent roll out there. Not too dry and not too wet. Some divot damage but most were filled in. I’m mean they give you bottles and there is a rack at the turn.

Rough is really the native area as far as I’m concerned here. I didn’t venture in for fear of snakes.

I know this is pricey so it doesn’t fit everyone budget but conditions are good and should only get better.

Played in the men’s club tournament today and the conditions are not very good right now. I got there a few minutes before 6 to warm up since the range opens at that time. Needless to say no one opened until 6:15 and the lights were not turned on so I was hitting shots blindly. For a destination course this range is very poor even when conditions are better. Limited flight scuffed up balls are what you get. The new chipping green is better but I’m still surprised they didn’t make is bigger. They have the room and they always have the other areas roped off. I have no clue why.

The greens are actually really good. No maintenance was done on them so there were quicker than I’ve been playing. I ran quite a few by leaving some testy kneekonockers. There are some old ball marks that were unrepaired or poorly repaired.

Tee boxes are awful. Both the black and taupe tees are grouped together on every tee box and the markers are all the way at the front of the tee box. I don’t think they have moved the markers at all because some of the boxes didn’t have a place to tee it up within 2 club lengths. The 9th tee box was soaked too.

Fairways and rough are going to have water in low lying areas. They are watering the heck out of the course right now. Actually when we finished they turned on the sprinklers on 1 and the tee box on 2. Funny there was no one on 1 but there was a group teeing off on 2 which had to move. The grass has barely started to grow back and these will probably get worse before they get better. My guess is they will let this grow out and not cut the fairways for a little while.

Just FYI it will be cart path only until February. I don’t see myself coming back before December at the earliest.

Played in a men’s club tournament and this was my first time playing the new or revamped south. I must say there are only a handful of holes that are different. Most notably would be

4-left side of the fairway is shaved down bringing the cliff more into play. The green side bunker is also smaller.
9-there is a new bunker that sits about 50 yds from the green in the middle/right side of the fairway. Behind the green there is about 30 yds shaved down.
10-the bunker on the left fairway was moved up,quite a bit. I guess for those that lay up off the tee this would be a factor. The bunker on the right I think is still the same, it might have been moved more towards the fair away.
17-like 4 the left is shaved down to bring the canyon into play more. The trees on the right are all gone so you’re better off just aiming way right.

Overall the course needs more time to grow back. I’d wait until after the October maintenance to get out here. The greens were good maybe just a tad shaggy and a little slow for my taste. Not too many marks thou which was nice. The collars around all the greens are new and shows.

There is suddenly a sand surplus in San Diego now because all the bunkers were really soft. We had some real buried lies in the bunkers. Also the back 9 bunkers were not raked. I was not in a fairway bunker but they all looked the same.

Fairways were ok. There were areas right before the greens that were new and needs time to grow. Areas were there was no work done were actually quite nice. So it’s a mixed bag one this one.

Rough is down and there still seems to be areas which still look like construction zones. Just really depends on the lie that you got.

I’m not sure if every tee box was redone but you can tell there are some because you can see the sod lines. Still it was fine to tee off from.

As a resident I didn’t mind paying the fee but if you are fee conscious or a non resident you’re better off waiting. Pretty crazy to think fall maintenance is right around the corner and then the course starts preparing for the farmers so one would think conditions should get better in the upcoming months.

Teed off this morning about 7:30 and finished right around 4 1/2 hours. Overall conditions are pretty darn good.

There was a lot of water out there which I assume was from the over night watering. I had several mud balls which seemed odd. It was a little warm towards the afternoon so maybe it was in preparation of the heat? Overall the fairways were great but obviously not a lot of roll out. There were a couple of roped off areas but they seemed to be small in size. It was cart path only on 2 holes (which I already forgotten).

Rough was not as deep as I remember but around the greens it'll get you attention. I didn't think it was too penal but not sure I would try ripping 3 woods out of them.

Bunkers were really good. They all seemed raked, at least the ones I noticed. Not too soft that balls embeded but not thin either that your shot hit clay or dirt.

Greens were great still a little soft as approach shots could make some pretty deep ball marks. The good news is I didn't really see much in the way of unrepaired ones. I thought the pace picked up quite a bit as the day wore on. The pins had some little sneaky breaks at the end near the holes. Needless to say I didn't drop any putts today, nothing new there.

Customer service was fabulous. Everyone from the guys in the club house, starter, marshal and the cart attendants were very gracious. The rack rate may be pretty pricey but I know they always have deals thru underpar, scga, etc. If you're holding one of those now might be a good time to consider using it.

It must be the new norm here. I knew the greens were being punched next week but they actually punched all the fairways this week. Some were fresher than others. The fairways they punched at the beginning of last week have grown in some so it wasn’t that bad. Newer fairways were a little dicey.

Greens were good. Firm and rolling out quite a bit. I thought the pace was a little faster than it looked. I seemed to run out my first putt a little more than I expected leaving quite a few comeback kneeknockers.

Rough is down and very playable. There were some wet areas where they hadn’t cut the grass and I did find one of there areas, that was fun.

I was in 2 green side bunkers and they were pretty soft. Seemed pretty consistent throughout the course.

All being said I’d probably hold off playing until after the maintenance. I have no idea how long this one will take to recover from. The maintenance done earlier this year seemed to take a lot longer to get back to normal which I hope isn’t the case this time around.

Teed off this morning at 6 and I thought we’d be one of the first off but there were groups going at 5:30. We still finished in 3:45 so pace was great. Place was quite busy with the junior worlds starting tomorrow.

I thought the greens were in pretty decent shape. Certainly a lot better than last time I was here. I’d say the greens are medium speed which is slow for here. Usually they roll quite quickly. I’m sure they will be rolled and cut this week. Still firm and they roll out quite a bit on approach shots still. Still ball mark issues but that’s always an issue which saw a couple of balls bounce off line.

Fairways are good and the rough is down so I think the course is pretty gettable right now. Tee box on 1 was moved up to the gold tee boxes but other than that everything was pretty normal. Even though the course is shut down this week hopefully conditions continue to improve and definitely worth a look if your a resident.

If I could copy and paste my last review I would but wanted to revisit the greens in this review since everything else is pretty much the same.

I thought it would take 2 weeks for the greens to recover and I still stick with that. I really have no idea what is going on with these greens. They are recovering so slowly this year. The greens have started to firm up too. They actually roll decently from a pace stand point but there are many ball marks both repaired improperly or not at all that you will more likely have to fix on your putts. It’s kind of scary that we are 5 weeks out of maintenance and this is an issue with summer around the corner.

Played yesterday morning a little before 8 and finished a little under 4 hours. No one ahead or behind us so it was like a private club today although the tee sheet was pretty full.

I thought the greens were a tad slower than normal. They however rolled really good though and not many ball marks out there. I believe greens 4, 9 and 13 were punched last week and still recovering.

Fairways were great to hit from. I don’t remember there being any issues. The carts come equipped with sand bottles so we did our part to fill in divots out there. Just FYI Hole 5 is punched.

Rough is thick. Not as thick as I have seen it before but still long and sticky enough or impact your shot and shot selection. A few times I just took a mid iron to get it back in play.

I was in one bunker and it was great. All other bunkers looked to have been raked and ample sand.

Customer service is always top notch here. Range was grass this day which is nice because I always have a hard time teeing it up in the artificial grass that have. If you’re a stickler about the greens not being punched then you may want to wait a week for the other 3 greens to heal otherwise an enjoyable experience.

Teed off this morning at 6 and was back at the car heading home at 9:30 so the pace was outstanding. Overall the course is still recovering from the maintenance and needs a little more time to heal. Greens were slow for my taste. I just could not judge the right speed. Maybe I’m accustomed to the pace being quicker on these greens. Some greens have haled better than others as some of the punched holes are still visible on a handful. Fairways are good and probably have recovered the quickest of anything. I still saw some holes but they would be in a small area not the entire fairway thou. Rough was a little down but could settle down making some shots tricky. Overall course is coming in nicely but may be better to wait a couple of weeks for the course to fully recover.

Was 2nd off yesterday as a 3some following what seemed to be regulars in the first group. Not as fast as I expected to play being second off as the first group took their time. Still finished at 4 hours thou.

Greens have small holes punched but this didn’t effect putts in my opinion. The number of ball marks both unrepaired and repaired improperly were more of an issue. They rolled apfaster than they looked. Ran the first few putts quite a bit past the hole.

Fairways just ok. They are decent but there are just various spots throughout like different grasses/weeds/dead spots, etc.

Rough was actually surprisingly thick in a good number of areas. I actually almost lost a couple in there. There are areas that are not bad at all wouldn’t impact your shot selection so just be careful.

Sand was great. I was in a couple and they were raked nicely and ample sand. I was just in green side but fairways looked a little firmer.

I’d say it’s 50/50 right now, I’ve done seen better conditions and I’ve seen worse.
