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.

Snuck out as a single on Sunday, 9/12. Waited about an hour on the waitlist and teed off at 2:30pm. Course as normal was busy. POP was right at 5hrs, finished 18 pretty much dark, to be expected at this course, always plays pretty slow.
Everything is in pretty good shape. Teeboxes were just fine, fairly level and adequate coverage, never had any issues. Fairways are very nice right now. Plenty of coverage, never had a bad lie all day. Didn't find much rough as I only missed one fairway on number 10 and it was in the fairway bunker and I hit 13 greens, so really didn't notice the rough that much. Greens were very receptive and rolled well, medium speed, not very fast at all. Lots of ball marks, so I fixed a bunch while I knew we would be waiting on just about every teebox anyway. Saw the beverage cart a few times and check in was easy and smooth as usual. Easy recommend if you can get out there. $26 to walk is a real bargain, I think that's the twilight rate.» Close

Played yesterday, Labor Day. Used the website to search teetimes and then called the proshop on Sunday to book over the phone as it's kind of a pain to log into their website and create an account to book online, I'm fine talking to a real person and they were very accommodating. Teed off late, as our playing partners were running behind, so our 2:37 starting time ended up being about 3pm, but the starter (Ben) was great and the cart staging crew (Robin) was outstanding. Good vibes from everyone who works at this course. We didn't quite finish, but we would have if we teed off on time at 2:37. It was busy, holiday, so to be expected.
Course conditions are very playable right now. Nothing super outstanding, but nothing super awful, either. Basic carts, no GPS, but no big deal as I use my golfbuddy voice. Greens were pretty good, held shots very well and putted a good speed with very few bumps. Lots of unrepaired ball marks, so I fixed about 5 of them every hole. Tees were nice and level with adequate coverage, played the blacks, so they don't get that much play. Found one bunker and it was pretty hard pan, not maintained very well. Fairways were just fine. No complaints. Had good lies for the most part all day. Rough was a mixed bag, some thick and some thin. Not very penal, either way. All things considered, $37 to ride on a holiday was just fine, good value. I like the layout, there's some really cool holes out there. Definitely recommend right now.» Close

Played yesterday, Sunday the 15th at 11:10 teetime. $26 to ride is well worth it in my opinion. Fun little par 3 course that's in good shape besides the bunkers. Played the bunkers as ground under repair, they're not being maintained. The teeboxes as to be expected had plenty of divot damage, but you could gernally find a good spot to hit. Greens were very receptive, lots of ball marks, but most were fixed and they putted pretty smooth and good pace. Staff seemed all good, no frills carts and proshop and it's fun to hang out with the disc golfers, they give them carts, too and they have a good time and keep a great pace. We played in just over 3hrs. Fun time and good place to work on your iron game.» Close

Had an opportunity to play this private course yesterday. I play every once in a while with a group known as Mesa Golf Club here in San Diego and one of them, Robert, is a member at Vista Valley, so he was able to arrange 4 groups, we teed off in the first group at 9:20am on Sunday, 7/25. Great group of golfers.
Proshop wasn't very well stocked, but I managed to find a nice logo shirt for purchase anyway. Guy in the pro shop was very nice. Beautiful clubhouse, locker rooms, restaurant, all very nice.
Layout of the course is very fun and challenging. We played the whites and I can't wait to go back and play the tips. Totally different course from the back tees. Thanks to Robert for offering some local knowledge which is absolutely crucial. I still hit drives through a couple of fairways and had to punch out, so next time from the tips will be much more suited to my game. I could've/should've used a 4 wood or 3iron from many of the white tees.
Conditions for everything on the course were above average, but nothing stood out as super spectacular. The teeboxes were level and had decent coverage, but there was some divot damage, but not too bad. Fairways were fairly soft and had good coverage. Quite a bit of ground under repair, but it was well marked off. Rough wasn't very penal, fairly easy to play from. Found one bunker and it was nice, no complaints. Greens were definitely the highlight. They rolled fairly fast and very smooth. Held shots amazingly well, very soft and receptive. Guest fees were $85 for us and felt it was well worth it. Can't wait to get back out. If you get a chance to play, I recommend it.» Close

Gosh, I hate leaving a review like this as I love this course and I play here a few times a year for the past 30+yrs. But, conditions are definitely lacking right now. Only saving grace was the greens. Twilight rate for Saturday at 3pm was $25 to walk and POP was 4.75hrs, waited every tee box for at least 10mins. Then, after that, the hole itself, after we teed off, played normal time, bizarre.
Teeboxes, unlevel, chewed up. Made you analyze for at least one minute to get a good spot. Eventually, found a decent spot to tee it up, although sometimes I opted for level lie with good stance and grass, rather than the ideal tee position. Pretty frustrating, actually. Especially on this course, where tee shot position is key with all the doglegs and often times hitting less than driver.
Fairways were pretty awful. Tons of GUR, so at least they are aware. I always play the ball down, so I dealt with a lot of poor lies in the fairways. Once again, frustrating.
Sand traps were a joke!!! No rakes, crusty, hard pan underneath, footprints, you name it. Stay out of them at all costs. Probably should've played them GUR right now, but once again, I post, so I pretty much took my adjusted double bogey on the two holes I found the greenside bunker.
Rough was a mixed bag, some spots it was short with a lot of clover/weeds easy to play and some other spots it was diabolical, Torrey US Open style.
Greens were literally the only reason why I didn't quit at the turn. They held full shots amazingly well and putted very smooth. Fairly quick, too, especially down hill.
Hope they turn things around at this muni. Right now, I'd probably stay away for a little while.» Close
