I love the game and play by the rules. I have been playing for over 30 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 yesterday, Wed. at 2:30pm. with Jaybejay11 and two other friends. Jaybejay11 booked online and if he paid upfront, he got a killer $30 rate with a free beer at the turn! Amazing deal for this amazing course.
Course overall in fantastic shape.
Teeboxes very level with great coverage, hardly any divot damage on all the par 3s. Jaybejay11 and I played from the tips, so this may have been why, but the two players played from the whites and I didn't notice anything bad from their tees, either. Very nice tee boxes.
Rough off the fairways was not very penal. Around the greens, however, it definitely made you think. Great condition and playable, not unfair.
Fairways were just fine, I didn't have a bad lie all day. my playing partner did end up in one divot, so they were present. But I thought overall the fairways were in great shape with good cushion and still had some roll out.
Sand traps were not very good, they were hard pan and about the only downside to the whole course.
Greens were great to excellent condition. Very receptive and putted amazingly true. No bumps whatsoever!!!
POP was right at 4.25hrs, but that was our fault. We took our time. Never waited on anyone and were being a little pushed on the front nine, but picked up our pace on the back. Never saw a marshal, which was kind of odd. Saw the cart girl once on the front.
This is an amazing course. I thoroughly have a great time every time I play here. Excellent value. Get on out there.» Close

Played on Tuesday, 4/9 at 11am. Easy check in, booked a time online through the Navy website. $35 civilian rate to walk, easy course to walk for the most part. Great track and it was in very playable condition. POP was at 4hrs, never waited for much, at all. Moved right along. Starter was very friendly, came out and talked to us for a few minutes before we teed off and gave a couple of pointers on the first tee. Very nice.
Teeboxes were just fine. Nice and level without too much divot damage.
Fairways were hit and miss. A few of them had some bad spots in the middle of the fairways, but for the most part, I never had any issues, one bad lie all day.
Rough was a mixed bag, some holes very long and penal, others weren't very difficult. I found a lot of fairways, which is nice.
Found one trap and it was great. No problems.
Greens were in good shape, they held shots well. But I couldn't get a good read on them, didn't make hardly any putts, but I suck at putting, so that's the norm. They seemed to role just fine and were smooth.
Beverage cart was out a couple of times, but we used the halfway house instead, you hit it at 8 and 12.
Overall always a great time out here. Need to play it more often. Very good value.» Close

Played yesterday/Sunday, 7:45 teetime. We were fortunate enough to get infront of a large group of 40players behind us. POP was much better than usual, 4:15, which wasn't too bad for Balboa. Waited on most shots on the front, but the back moved quicker. Only one group on the 6th teebox, which is a miracle!!
Conditions overall are just average for everything.
Teeboxes were level, but very hard underneath. Broke tees on half the drives.
Fairways were all pretty decent, they were really nice walking up to the landing areas, but then the landing areas were a little suspect. Some divot damage and dead patches here and there.
Greens were pretty nice, but they were firm, didn't hold shots unless they were struck perfectly with lots of compression and spin (I guess that's what you're supposed to do normally) If you were hitting the greens from the rough, expect a club of release, at least.
Found one bunker greenside and it was just fine, no issues.
Rough was rather high and thick, try and avoid it!!
customer service was just fine, the large group of 40 going out behind us had a line out the door in the pro shop. Since we were going out first, they let us skip in front of the line to check in.
Walking resident rate $40 is definitely worth it. Love the track and it's a great walk, good workout. Looks like they are going to punch the teeboxes and fairways, they had them all marked off around the perimeters with red paint. Hopefully that will improve the conditions.» Close
