Played on an October Sunday. No rain recently, and the course needs rain to look nice. They can’t irrigate enough to keep the brown out and greens in good shape. But, for $35 with a hot dog, it’s definitely worth the green fee.
Fairways and greens were fine. The bunkers need something other than dirt in them, and a little tlc to repair the edges. Just a bit too far off the beaten path to generate the necessary revenue for the necessary maintenance. The good news, POP was spectacular (finished in 3 hrs, even with a struggling Junior golfer with me), and the gent in the clubhouse was friendly.

I've been thinking of playing here many times on my way to LV. I played today on a Saturday afternoon on my was tobLV for a convention.
A nice clubhouse built in 2008 greets you. Shared by nice Mexican/seafood grill.
Service just fine.
Course winds through an older community...a bit sketchy late in the day. Carts required back by 630 -- I teed off at 430. I frankly wouldn't want to be on the back nine later than that, as some of the local kids begin lingering. I literally had to shoo off a kid off 5th tee while she lounges there with her golden retriever. By the time I got to 14...I was ready to hit the road. In the early morning, probably a completely different vibe.
This course has good bones. A decent design that they obviously can't afford to keep up...so they choose to focus on greens (good) and fairways (decent), while the rough and cart paths are horrible. Cart was well past its prime. It was bone jarring on the "cart path", such as it is.
Worth the $20 twilight if you need a break, but I wouldn't want to pay much more.

Received A-list rate from a friend, which, at $155, caused me to cancel my normal time at Fairbanks Ranch and fight the Sunday noontime traffic up the 5 North. Service is always superb here, from cart staff greeting to clubhouse, to the amazing starter.

Greens had been punched and sanded between the Kia Classic and my round, so they were firm and hard to hold. I was getting off the tee reasonably well, but couldn't score on those things!

Ask the starter for the LPGA scorecard. It's fun to play the course the way they did. You play mostly blue tees, and the tips on 9 & 10. Of all the times I've played Aviara, I had never played from the back tees on 10, which I think is a far better hole; it allows you to swing a 3w or a Driver.

An excellent day capped off with a drink overlooking the 18th tee. We got it good here in San Diego!

Played in a jam packed shotgun yesterday, Wednesday, in 95 degree heat. They got us out on time, but with 220+ people on both courses, it did jam up a bit. Course was in great shape, minimal green damage for so many people.

Looks like it could be a challenge when stretched to the tips; we played white tees, so pretty easy. Well worth the trip.

I will preface this by saying that the last reviewer seemed to like the course and the single I was paired also liked it. Course is in worsening shape, it's far too tricked out, and the traps are just hard pan. I couldn't make it thru 18, because I didn't like the layout, conditions, nor pace of play. Cheap rates bring out poor golfers, on a target golf course...i should've known better. Ymmv

I've started to play this course a bit more, as the club I belong to is silly busy on weekend mornings. Played today, 6/30, for the second time in a month. It is a great course to walk, and so far, I've walked on as a single with no more than a 30 minute delay. Check-in is quick, although some construction through mid-July makes it a bit of an obstacle course (upstairs to pay, downstairs for starter office).

The course is an up and back canyon deal, so don't expect a huge amount of diversity of views or hole layouts, but from the blues, it's a decent test...with several 400+ yd par 4's, and a couple of 200 yd+ par 3s.

For a military course, the fairways are FANTASTIC! Greens tend to be just a little shaggy and inconsistent, but nothing that'll ruin your round. Tee areas are good. Rough is good in most places, but inconsistent. Several areas on mud/soggy from below average drainage. But heck, for a military course that you can walk very inexpensively, well worth the drive to the back gate. And a far superior value to Arrowood ($75+) 2 miles away...unless you must have more of a lush experience.

Played Saturday, 7/17, 2pm. $45 twilite rate makes this an incredible value for San Diego. "Maderas North" is how I describe it to people. Course was in fine shape, greens a touch slow in the afternoon, not sure if this was time of day or 2-3 weeks post-punch. Just a few rough patches, but overall very good conditions for the price.

No real changes here. Played 1st week of January. Staff courteous (MUCH better starter this time), conditions wonderful. I had an early tee-time, and after a short frost delay, found the first few greens so hard I couldn't repair them. Frozen or just rock hard, I dunno. Once it warmed up, it was a treat.
I still don't think this is a $250 course, but with a coupon or discount or group outing, certainly a good track.

I played North on Sunday, starting out at 1pm. About 5 of the par 4s are cart path only, but the remainder of the 4s/5s are limited access...the overseeding has completed. Very few trouble spots (brown), and less mud than on the South finishing holes.

The rough, as on the south, is up and thick. I believe they may start lowering it over the next few weeks. (OK, HOPE)

Greens are a bit slower than you might expect, but things are still LaCosta moist, so perhaps that's normal for this time of year. I think they could certainly speed it up if they needed to.

California Junior tour was out here this weekend. My ego took a major hit watching those kids kill it. WOW.

Unless you're following a big tournament, pace of play is what you expect of a $150+ course.

Played South a couple of times last week (after the rain), and the course is lush. 9 & 18 have their typical post-rain muddy-ness, but for the most part, it's in terrific shape. Rough is up, so hit it straight, or you'll be doing the Torrey South waltz (zig-zagging through the rough in search of a ball).
I really enjoy the laid-back feel here. Unless you run into a tournament, you'll get a relaxed, well-paced round on a challenging but enjoyable course. You pay a bit more to not feel rushed or slowed, but IMHO, totally worth it.

Played a couple of weeks ago. The fairways have come back, and the course is certainly playable. Some rough edges and thin areas in the fairways, but very playable. Torrey North is back!

Played here again this past weekend with a terrific amateur player who plays here 4x/wk. It was pretty neat to watch how the course could be managed from the tips (him) and mis-managed (me) for a 20-stroke difference.
Anyway, the new GPS is here, and it's one of the nicer ones, although they force you to listen/watch Jack describe each hole as you roll up on the tee box. Definitely slows down play, and makes you wait about :10-:15 before you can get your yardage. No option to shut Jack up (no disrespect meant Mr Nicklaus).
I was a little disgruntled by the starter not keeping me informed (I was a single, and got skipped by "buddies of the head pro" because of the tardiness of a couple of people they'd paired me with). When I asked the guy in the proshop, the starter (you know the type) got all huffy and said "if you want to complain, I'll send you out alone". Nope, just let me know what the heck's going on, pal, and we'll be cool.
Despite the ruffled feathers on my and his parts, the course was incredibly well conditioned for mid August. Tees, fairways, and greens showed stress from the constant play coupled with heat, but after the re-seed next week, I predict awesome playing conditions the remainder of the year.
Just try to avoid getting your hackles up by an old-style starter who doesn't have caddies to manipulate anymore.
