Hi, I'm Kyle. I'm a low-to-mid teens handicap, looking to become a single digit. I live in the Los Angeles area, where I prefer to play. I very much enjoy playing elsewhere, but with owning a small business that's open seven days per week, I can't play in other counties as often as I would like. Love meeting new golf friends, which is one of the main reasons I joined this site (and cause Johnny is a cool guy). Who knows, maybe I'll even meet a single lady golfer through here. In any case, looking forward to getting out there with y'all and sharing great courses and great company.

Played here for the first time today, with a bunch of friends from my golf club. We all used vouchers from GolfMoose that got us two players with cart for $99 (so $50 each). That’s definitely a great deal for this course, because it is a great course, in very good shape.
It was morning and cloudy/foggy when we started, so front nine was very cool and wet. But aside from that, course conditions were great. No complaints on any aspect of the course. It is indeed a championship golf course. I had heard it was a challenging course, and it lived up to the hype. Very challenging layout, even from the white tees. I can only imagine how tough it must play from the black tees.
What makes it so tough is all the dog legs, many of which have trees or bunkers strategically placed in the fairways, so you have to be accurate with your tee shots. And if you miss the fairway, the rough isn’t overly penal right now, but I’m sure it could be if they wanted it to. Beyond the rough is some really nasty stuff on some holes, either tall grass, or bushes, or actual hazard areas. There are also lots of elevation changes throughout the course, and some holes have side slants, leaving side hill lies. In summary, it’s a course that is just very demanding. You have to hit good shots, or else you will be punished. But that’s what makes it great. It’s a good test of every aspect of your game.» Close

Played here for the first time yesterday, after hearing great things about it. It did not disappoint. The course conditions are nothing to write home about – just average from tee to green. But the views are AMAZING.
There are ocean views on at least half the holes. In fact, of the few ocean courses I’ve played (Torrey Pines South, both Half Moon Bay courses, Los Verdes), this has the most. The weather was perfect—sunny, warm, not overly windy—and from what the starter said, it’s like that most of the time.
The greens were fine, just noticed several unrepaired ball marks. All greens break back to front, and NOT necessarily toward the ocean. Very fast above the hole. Fairways, rough, and tee boxes were all average. Wasn’t in more than one bunker, but the one I was in was wet/muddy (at 2:30 in the afternoon), and I saw a large puddle of standing water in another bunker later in the round.
High price tag of $135 for weekend twilight, but it does come with a cart w/GPS and a (very small) bag of range balls (hitting off grass). The course conditions aren’t worth the price, but the views ARE. Especially if you’re like me, and don’t live up here. Certainly worth adding to your bucket list.» Close

Played here on Saturday 9/10. Before I start, I must issue the disclaimer that it had rained a significant amount--and for the first time in months--the day & night before. As such , the course wasn't in it's usual condition. It was cart path only throughout, and all the greens were soft, slow, and bumpy. Which meant all shots would hold, and you could aim pretty much straight at the pin; just have to hit your putts hard enough to get to the hole.
Aside from these conditions that were unique to the rain, I'm sorry to report that the course isn't in as good of shape as I remember it. Granted I've only played here once prior to today, but I don't remember there being so many bare spots on the course. Everywhere--fairways, rough, even greens, there were patches of ground that were mostly or completely absent of grass. Aside from this, things were pretty good: Lush conditions on most of the course, including tee boxes, minus some thin spots in the rough near the edges. I didn't go into any bunkers, but form what I observed, they appeared to have decent sand in the middle, but possibly hard/thin/crusty near the edges. There were also some muddy spots out there, but tha was probably due to the rain.
All in all, I do not think this course is worth the $100 they charge on weekend mornings, BUT it is worth the $45 to play twilight (I was given an even lower price, as well as a free course/yardage guide book, so high marks to them for that, from a service standpoint). Practice facilities are good, too, with a grass range, chipping green, and putting green. Nice restaurant setup, too.» Close

Played here on Labor Day, Monday 9/5. Got on via San Diego Golf Reservations. It is the only Tom Fazio-designed course in San Diego. Between that, and the reputation of being super nice, and "all-inclusive" (cart, range balls, forecaddie, and food & beverage credit), I was willing to pay the high price tag of $360.
Looking back, I admit that was a bit too high, though it wasn't because the course didn't live up to the hype--I just didn't want to admit that to myself beforehand haha. As for the course itself, it was great. Every area was in great shape, except for the 13th hole, which had been punched in the fairway. There were several other holes that were cart path only, as well. I can't say it was the BEST conditions I've ever seen on a golf course, but it was certainly good.
The layout itself was also good, with enough challenge to make you hit good shots, but easy enough to shoot a good score if you keep it in play. And with 5+ sets of tees, there is all the variety you could want, from very long with many forced carries, to very short with no forced carries. Fun fact about this club: Xander Schauffle has a house behind the 15th hole, and plays here often when he's not on Tour.
My favorite part of playing here, other than the course itself, was probably the service. Everyone was super nice, polite, friendly, helpful and professional. The best service experience was from our forecaddie, whose name is Joe. He was super helpful, as well as super funny, with lots of personality, and he did a great job of paying equal attention to all four players in the group. I don't think I'd pay $360 to play here again (rather spread that money around elsewhere) BUT I would recommend this course in general. For example, maybe a stay & play, which you can find on GolfMoose, UnderPar, etc.» Close

Played for the first time. Had heard good things, and it lived up to the hype. Conditions were solid. Not as nice as Maderas or Torrey, but better than Balboa Park. Only weak area was the tees, which were a little spotty in terms of turf coverage and quality. The best thing about this course was the views. Lots of holes on or near the water. And with today being a holiday weekend, there were lots of boats (including yachts) and people on the water, which enhanced the view that much more. Definitely a course to put on your list when visiting San Diego.» Close
