Got here a little before 6 to put my name on the list and got in the 3rd group out at 6:40ish. Pace wasn’t an issue as we cruised to 3:30 finish. Overall conditions are pretty impressive. Greens are in great shape. Not too many ball marks, old and new. I do remember it looked like a little fungus spot on the front of 4 and a handful of dead areas. Bu considering the amount of play this course gets I really like the overall aesthetic of the greens. They also rolled at a decent pace too.

Fairways are in good shape too. Again there are some dead spots but it’s really good to hit from. Sat up nicely on the fairway.

Rough is the same. Not penalizing but those trees do come into play.

I was in the green side bunker on 10 and plugged in the face and there was no way for me to get out. I was surprised there was that much sand especially that high up. Others looked consistent. Fairway bunkers looked a little firmer thou.

Considering most courses are undergoing maintenance this course is certainly worth a look and for $37 to walk certainly fits into anyone budget.

Was 3rd off this morning as a 2some following 2 3somes. There was a single behind us who never caught us so pace was right around 3:30.

Greens were probably about medium speed. There was some morning dew which seemed to slow them down a bit. I thought some greens were a tad quicker so maybe a little inconsistency in that regard. Pretty smooth, I really didn't remember seeing many ball marks other than my own.

Fairways were good. Some rough spots but generally good lies. There were some wet areas from the overnight watering (some in the rough too).

Rough is down and a little dicey in areas but the canyons is the real rough.

Most tee markers were off to the side of the tee box waiting for the mowers to get to them. They did need a cut too I thought it was a tad too long for my taste. It was nice that they redid the tees on 14 and looked like they were leveling 10.

Played yesterday morning and was the fourth group out. Overall pace was about 4:15. There was a shotgun at 8 that started on the back so once they finished the back 9 the pace did pick up at the end.

Greens are decent. They are probably rolling at an average pace. There were guys out watering as we were playing so maybe they would be a little faster as they dried out. Seeing how they were watered there was quite a big ball mark as your approach shot hit the green. Less ball marks overall than I expected so that was good. Still some old ones that hadn’t been properly repaired but I’ve seen way more in previous visits.

Rough for the most part is down but there were a handful of areas that were really thick. Mowers were out so maybe they just hadn’t gotten to them yet. There were also many dead areas out there which is disappointing but considering the summer I guess that is to be expected. Chances are you’ll likely have to deal with a lie in this and it’s no fun.

Fairways are decent. Like most other courses they do show signs of the heat taking its toll but still pretty good to hit from. Good coverage and mowed at a good height.

In a couple of traps and I didn’t have a problem with them. Seemed to be sand in the ones I hit from.

Considering little brother is still recovering from maintenance this is certainly in better shape but still needs some TLC. If you were a non resident I’d say it’s better to wait u til after the fall maintenance is completed. If you were a resident and think the fee is high then you’ll probably not justify the conditions right now.

First of all just note the greens are scheduled to be punched next Tuesday and Wednesday.

Played here a few times the past couple of weeks and wanted to summarize all the reviews in one. Greens are not bad but there are a lot of ball marks on them so maybe now is a good time to punch them. Hopefully they just don't take as long to heal. Greens rolled decently if they stayed on line. Certainly not a firm as before but still some roll out on approach shots.
The biggest disappointment is the areas around the greens. There are some really bad areas with dead grass, no grass, sandy areas, etc. I'm not sure I had a round in which I didn't have to deal with a bad lie at some point. I couldn't figure out how to play these shots either and I tried, chipping, using a hybrid and putting. None of my choices seem to be the right one.

Fairways showing more signs of a dry summer, more browness, dead areas but still a decent amount of coverage on the fairways.

Rough is not bad and I mentioned the areas around the greens. The same could be said in other areas of the rough. Its down so its not penalizing at all.

Tee boxes are generally ok, some are worse than others and I think #1 might have been one of the worse ones.

Pace of play was generally good. I was always out in the am so it never took over 4 hours.

Bottom line is the course is in a little TLC right now so I would hold off playing until the maintenance is complete.

Got here on Friday morning about 5:45 and was about 8th in line. First tee time is 6 and i teed off at 6:30 so not that bad of a wait. Finished in about 4 hours.

There were some greens on the front that look to have a fungus on them. Greens on the back are much better and roll pretty well. Not super fast but decent. Not too many ball marks that early which is nice considering how much play it gets.

Fairways are pretty good. I was hitting a lot of wayward drives so I didn’t get to hit from here as much as I like. Maybe a few more divots than most other places. A few dead areas but not too bad.

Rough is not penalizing but these trees seem to get in the way. It’s like once you get in there it’s a _____ to get out of. I’ve also noticed some trees are gone. I was told some of the eucalyptus were blown over during some high winds we had.

Sand was really good. Was in a couple greenside and really able to take nice full swings to get that ball popping out and landing soft.

Smock was running the starter booth for a bit, hopefully he does well next week at the pga. Since he’s taken over I have thought the service is vastly improved. Before it didn’t seem like the people were grumpy or flat out didn’t care. Now everyone seems happier. Even now that the rate is $37 I still think it’s a good value. Cooler temps and a little breeze at this time of year feels nice than sweating it out at most other courses.

Played yesterday and was 4th off. Finished in 4 hours and 15 minutes. It could have been a lot faster if it wasn’t for the second group. They didn’t even tee off until the first group cleared the green and I’ll refrain from commenting on other things I saw of this group.

Greens are not as firm and fast as I’ve seen here but that is not a bad thing. It was just an adjustment based on my prior experience. There are actually ball marks on greens now. Some greens had many ball marks that hadn’t been properly repaired and they still show signs of those dead spots. #6 comes to mind. Rolled pretty well though.

Fairways were pretty good. Nice to hit from. A few bare areas but you’ll generally have good lies.

Rough is down and very playable right now. A few more bare areas in the rough than I’d like to see but not the worst.

Sand was very good. Looks heavy and wet but that is just the type of sand here. I was able play the shots I wanted which was a nice splash/thump.

Plenty of room on the tee boxes to tee it up. Maybe just the normal wear and tear on the par 3s.

For a resident it will fit the bill but for a nonresident I’d think it be better to wait until there are a little bit more in improvements.

Played in a tournament yesterday and I still agree with the comments of the prior review. Everything about the amenities and staff are outstanding but the course itself is a bit of a let down. I'd say the fairways were great actually nice roll and mowed tight. Nice and green with minimal bare spots around. I didn't remember them being this narrow but if you're not hitting fairways you're probably lost your ball.

The ball could really sit down in the rough. Luckily since it was a tournament we didn't need to play too many shots from here. That is the immediate rough but the other is the native area and this native area is just too thick to even go find a ball. Some of this was not well marked so I'm not sure if its white or red stakes.

Greens were a disappointment. They rolled ok and much softer than I would have expected. I thought the putts would be much faster but they were not. There were also too many unrepaired ball marks, spike marks, and others.

Nice range and customer service was top notch. Forecaddie was a nice guy and that's all I'll say about that. Overall for the rack rate I wouldn't be inclined to say you'll get your money's worth right now.

To follow up on my review from a couple of weeks ago I'm happy to report the punching on the greens has healed however and they are pretty good. There are a couple of bare spots (front of 7 comes to mind) where they have punch because that part of the green is not good. They rolled pretty great actually. Sadly as I expected there are many greens that have unrepaired ball marks and some actually look like a teenage boys face. Which is a shame because these greens would be really superb if golfers would take a little better care of the course. I think the practice green is in really fantastic shape so if you wanted to work on your putting this would be a good place to go.

Also there were a couple of maintenance workers out there putting sand in some of the bunkers so they were playing as ground under repair. It's good to see a course adding sand rather than just letting the bunkers go and becoming hard panned.

Everything else is pretty much the same as my last review. Despite all this I paid $34 as a civilian to walk and I think this is a great price (even better if you are military). It's good walk and a challenging course. I look forward to getting back out there soon.

Was paired up with another guy this morning first off and I could tell he didn't want to wait around so I told him to go ahead of me (I was walking). Boy I'm glad I did because he zipped around. I was on the 9th tee box and could see him in the fairway on the 13th hole. I played in 2:45, he must have been done in 2 wow.

Overall I was impressed with the color of the fairways. They were a lot greener than I was expecting but every fairway does have some rough parts. You'll find some dead areas in just about every fairway but for the other good part the grass is fantastic. I guess I always remember a couple of years ago when there was a water shortage and how dry and brown everything was so its nice to see a lot of green grass covering the fairways. They were also cut to a nice height. I really thought this was the highlight of the course.

Rough is typical. Not that thick, bare, patchy, etc.

Sand was pretty good. Found a couple of greenside bunkers and able to really dig into the sand and make some good shots out of there.

Tee boxes are typical. Par 3s are little more wear than you'd like to see but still room to find a place to tee it up.

Greens still show signs of punching and a tad too much sand for me. Still rolled decent but there were quite a few unrepaired ball marks on most greens. I'd say give it a couple of weeks before the greens have really healed.

Played a couple times over the past week so I'm just summarizing all the reviews. Pace was anywhere between 3-4 1/2 hours.

I thought the greens were rolling great. They don't look all that well because I was told that the "lighter" colored grass is actually a fungus that they been treating. They still rolled great in my opinion. I thought the practice green and actual greens were pretty consistent. A few unrepaired ball marks here and there but not as much as usual. Greens were holding shots well.

Some of the par 3 tee boxes are torn up but others are fine. I never had a problem finding a spot to tee off from.

Some bunkers were great, others needed to be raked, some the workers were upkeeping and so these were consider GUR, and some were really damp. This is the hardest part to rate because it was such a mixed bag. Generally greenside most greenside bunkers had been raked.

Fairways were good. Very nice turf to hit from and there is adequate roll on them. Seemed like the divots had generally been filled with a few exceptions here and there. I don't remember any dry spots in the fairways generally you'll have consistent turf.

Rough is down so its pretty playable. Still some balls can get down and have an impact on your next shot but generally I don't think it was too penalizing. There are a few more bare and dry spots in the rough. I certainly would rather the focus be on the fairways and greens thou.

Customer service is always great. Marshal was consistently present as was the cart girl.

Played here a couple of times this past week. Walked on a couple of afternoons as a single and there was no one out here. Played by myself all 3 times actually.

They actually were watering the greens during the afternoon so they were always real soft. Not a lot of release after hitting the green. Since there wasn’t a lot of play they weren’t too bad but if it got more traffic I could see the ball marks, spike marks and footprints becoming a problem.

Fairways are good. Since this is a short course there can be a good amount of divots in the fairway. I actually only hit driver on 3 holes due to some trees that can be in the way if you get too close to the green.

Rough has changed a bit. Looks like they took some of the rough out and put bark out as part of a turf reduction effort. Still the rough itself it not bad but you will probably be blocked by trees and have to work the ball accordingly.

Sand looked very hard but surprisingly was really good. They need to be raked but still very good to hit from.

Customer service was great. I got the gold membership which gets you a free round and another one in the month of your birthday. Mine is in June so I thought the $80 which is $40 for 2 of the rounds and the twilight rate is pretty good so I thought this was a good value.

Played this morning and teed off a little ahead of time. Overall pace was about 4:15, group in front of us was a tad behind but not much.

First these were by far the toughest pin locations ever since I played here. I can only think of no more than 5 holes that were not in the toughest part of the green. Greens rolled pretty good. I don’t think they were overall fast but not slow either. Pretty smooth too. There is a lighter color grass coming thru on some of the greens if that matters to you. Didn’t seem to affect anything in my opinion.

Fairways were nice and great to hit from. Got some decent roll out there. A few divots out there,some filled in and other were not. They are doing some work on 15 on the left side of the fairway. Looks like they just finished resodding it and it will probably be roped off. But it’s really minor.

Rough is not overly penalizing but can be a problem if your ball settles in and you need to hit a longer iron. Also they seemed there was some areas around a couple of greens and tee boxes that were punched. A little odd.

I don’t know if anyone has heard about the sand shortage in San Diego but I guess we have one. Bottom out a couple of times out there.

The south will certainly test your golf skills.....and your sanity.
