I love the game and play by the rules. I have been playing for over 35 years, so I get a little serious with my own game, but realize others aren't serious most of the time and don't let what they are doing on the course affect what I am doing. I like to play all over the place and like the course conditions to be better than average.

Played here on Saturday, 2/27, with a Facebook group outing. There was over 80 of us, I believe, and the course did a great job handling the volume. No shotgun, had regular teetimes from 8am-11am. POP was pretty slow, as to be expected with all the festivities going on, it was overall about 5hrs. But we had fun, nonetheless. Enjoyed everyone's company and had a lot of good laughs.
The course conditions continue to struggle here. Teeboxes were just fine, not many complaints on these, they were fairly level with adequate coverage. I found one sand trap and it was in decent shape, actually. Nice sand and definitely the highlight of conditions on the course. Fairways continue to be autrocious. We played winter rules and for good reason. They are struggling with these fairways. Very barren and patchy grass. Rough was not much of an issue, continues the patchy grass theme and not long at all. The greens putted OK, fairly smooth and quick. However, they wouldn't hold a shot to save your life. Expect at least 5-10 yds of roll, even with short irons. I don't remember seeing any ballmarks, they're rock hard. Customer service was excellent. Beverage cart was around twice, nice hotdog at the turn, check in was easy. $35 to walk on a Saturday isn't too bad, but I'm going to stay away for quite awhile, it's a shame, because there's some neat holes on this mature tree-lined course. It has a pretty good layout with lots of water and some OB. I don't use driving ranges, but it looked fairly beat up and the larger practice green is for chipping, there's a small practice green for putting and it's pretty useless with severe slopes, not super indicative of the course.» Close

Played yesterday with my brother and our wives for Valentine's Day. 9:30 tee time and finished right at 4hrs. Things moved great and there was not many people out there at 9am. It definitely was busier when we finished, but we had no problem.
Check in easy and fast. Conditions are just average right now. Teeboxes were fine, a little unlevel, but plenty of coverage, just take some extra time to find a good level stance. Fairways were pretty awful. Lots of bare patches and different grasses growing throughout. Others in my group were playing winter rules, which is recommended if you can. Didn't find any bunkers, but they looked ok as long as you gave yourself a break for footprints, please bring back rakes, this is getting ridiculous!! Rough wasn't penal, only about an inch or so longer than fairways. Greens were the highlight, for sure. They were a little hard and fast, but held shots for the most part, maybe a little more rollout than normal, but they putted smooth. The greens on the back nine are diabolical, so beware. No beverage cart, so stock up at the turn. $66 to ride is pretty steep for this place, but we enjoyed our round nonetheless.» Close

Played Saturday, 2/13. Called the proshop around 9am and they said come on out as a single and I arrived at 9:30 and got right out with a threesome that was already on the tee. I like firing fresh out of the gate, actually. Check in fast and easy and played with some nice guys. That's about where the good things of the course ends. $38 to walk, not worth any price in my opinion right now.
Everything about this course is questionable condition-wise. Teeboxes are chewed up. Fairways are a total disaster (and I play the ball down so I can post scores with confidence and conscience). The rough has better lies than the fairways, ridiculous as I only missed two fairways. Found one bunker and it actually wasn't too bad, probably the best part of the course is the bunkers. Greens are rock hard and don't hold shots at all!! At least they had good coverage and were fast, but fairly bumpy.
I have avoided this course over the years because of the condition and only played because I'm in a golf outing on Feb 27 and really didn't remember the layout, so wanted to get a refresh. I'm having second thoughts on playing in two weeks, but I've already comitted and don't want to back out. Hopefully, they get it in a little better shape for our group on the 27th, but I'd stay away for now.» Close

PLayed yesterday afternoon. Walked on as a single around 11:45 and was off by 12:30. POP continues to be excellent, around 4.25hrs. which is great for this place. Nothing to add to my previous reviews as far as conditions go, still the same from the last two weeks. Customer service from the starter is still fantastic!! Keep up the good work and get out there if you can, always a great day at Nado.» Close

I was invited by a retired Navy vet to play yesterday, Wed 1/13, and I'm so glad I took the day off from the office to go play. Beautiful day and a very fun course!!! If you ever get a chance, do it!! Played with Lou(Navy vet, Bill and John. Great guys!!
Normal Covid restrictions in place and strictly enforced. masks in and around the proshop. Snack bar on 12 was open. No drink cart, but I BYOB regardless with a cooler built into my bag.
Didn't hit the range nor the practice putting green, we were running a little late so went straight to the first tee at 7:30am. POP was incredible at less than 4hrs and we waited a little bit on a few shots. So I was back at my car at the main gate parking lot by 11:30am, scooted over to Coronado GC to walk another 18!!
I walked and everyone else had single carts. $33 to walk is a steal!!! Played white tees as I didn't want to be the only one from the blues. Seemed to play a lot longer than the 5900yds on the card, ocean air seemed thick, so took an extra club or two to get it pin high. Everything was above average in condition. Teeboxes were great, all level with little divot damage. Fairways were in great shape, perfect cushion with plenty of coverage, they did spray with fertilizer, so there was those white foam globs all over the place that show the macine operator what path they have already covered. Made finding your ball in the fairways very challenging on the front nine, it dicapated by the back. Greens were excellent!! Super fast, watch out!!! They held shots very well, too!! Tough to read, but local knowledge will help. Traps were pretty good (I found two), they raked them in the morning so you had a good lie, but they were a little firm underneath, could've been a little softer. No rough to speak of right now, but I hear in the spring and Summer it gets brutal.
Views are outstanding and so awesome to have the planes and helocopters all around. Very noisy, but it's the great sound of freedom!! Get out there if you have a chance.» Close
