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 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

Played yesterday on a cool Sunday with some periods of light drizzle. Course is in pretty good shape overall. POP was ridiculous, over 5.5hrs. Waiting on just about every shot. No marshall out there to keep things moving, very disappointing. Resident walking rate was $40, well worth it on the Sunday.
Teeboxes were just fine, nothing outstanding, but nothing deplorable.
Fairways were good for the most part, except number 2 was a joke, just awful. I didn't play LCP, but was on the verge. I hate playing LCP, so I chose to play it down.
Greens were definitely the best part of the course. They held shots very well and putted smooth for the most part. Couple of them had some rough parts around the edges, but it didn't bother any of my shots.
Found one bunker and it was just fine, no problems.
I walked on at 9:30am and they had an opening for me at 10:30. Worked out perfect, was able to get a bite in the restaurant before hand. They have good food, but they went up on their prices.
Overall, I love the course and the layout. Just wish they could speed up play a little better.» Close

Staff in the pro shop was great. I walked on as a single on a sunday morning and Steve in the pro shop got me out in half hr. I teed off at 9:30 and we finished at 2pm. POP wasn't that bad, we had a long wait on number 9 and waited a couple other times, but overall can't complain.
This course layout is really nice. I haven't played here for about 20yrs because the conditions aren't that great.
Teeboxes were ok, had to search for a decent place to put the tee, but overall they were acceptable.
Fakrways were pretty much hideous. tons of weeds, dead spots, high grass, etc. Complete bag in the fairway. Lift clean and place for sure!! they were deplorable.
Sand traps looked like crap, but they actually played ok. I was in two of them greenside and they had weeds growing and weren't that attractive, but they played ok.
Greens were definitely the saving grace of the course. They held shots just fine and putted fairly true. They had some bad patches and putted offline a few times, but for the most part, they were ok. about the only thing good about the course.
Overall, I'd stay away right now. I wish they'd put some time and money into this course, it's a pretty killer layout. lots of water, ob, small greens, etc. It's got alot going for it, but the conditions are borderline playable if you want to play the ball down, which is how you are supposed to play golf. Lift clean and place in the fairway is not playing by the rules, in my book. Oh well, had a good time, nonetheless. Hope they bring this course around, someday.» Close
