Got a good rate on GNow, $15 w/cart. Got off a few minutes early from TTime, with another single and a 2some.

CPO only on all holes, so it hurt PoP, which ended up being 4 hrs, 30 mins. Check-in was fine, with the friendly starter, got us out maybe 10 mins early, at 12:25pm.

Never played here before, and have heard various feedback from a number of guys I've run into on other courses. Some people have praised it, others have admonished the tract.

I will say, at times it was confusing to know what club to hit. Holes 5 & 6 were closed, and a number of holes later included 'temporary' greens, added holes, and they were not in sync with what my Garmin GPS indicated on shots into the new, temporary greens. At least twice, I had hauled a club or two with me, only to learn that the 'temporary' greens were completely off from the expected yardage measurements.

Tee quality was hit/miss, some reasonable grass coverage, with the majority being tough to get a flat lie, smooth stance without the divots getting in the way on one's footing. 4/10

Fairways were not cut recently due to recent rains, I guess. Mostly needed to roll it. Some casual water on at least 1/2 the holes, and on hole #2, a 'casual' lake that consumed my 2nd shot, right, but near the green, not to be found until it dries out. 4/10

Rough was generally long and penal, 5/10.

Sand traps ranged from wet puddles, to heavy damp sand to fluffy sand. 4/10

Greens were great. As previously reported, the shining star of this course. Firm and not generally receptive, they did offer smooth and 'fast' green putting. A few 'bumps', at timesi putting, but otherwise smooth. 8/10

No cart lady. Marshal came by once. Water on 1 hole on the front, along with a johnny-loo on the 4th tee, and another water jug on the back nine, perhaps the 14th hole.

Reasonable challenge, and tight layout. Doubtful I will return anytime soon, but no doubt better if the fairways were maintained at a higher level. A nice challenge, but an unremarkable tract, imho. Clubhouse needs some investment.

If you live nearby, OK, I understand the attraction due to the price. But, otherwise, not worth the drive, imho.

Played on Sunday after the rain so conditions were not ideal. The course was soggy and lots of areas muddy and roped off. We were warned at the proshop beforehand so we appreciate the warning.

Greens were in decent condition. Surprising that it was firm and still rolled pretty decent speed.

Bunkers were decent but wet and sand heavy and packed.

Pace of play was pretty good due to a lot of people staying away due to the wet conditions. Finished under 4 hours with a start time of 9am on a Sunday.

Probably would wait a few days before playing and hoping no more rain :)

Played 2/16 before the rains of Friday. Course was still soggy before the rains, so I would imagine it is somewhat worse now? They had CPO on # 1 and # 10. Various fairways (mostly on the back, were still damp). Tee boxes were fine, traps were wet/damp and the rough was very deep/thick. Greens were soft but playable and putted very well. Course was very busy due to Thurs golf/food special and play was very slow. Customer service excellent at all levels.

Early morning round at Coto - south. Wanted to get this round in because the course will closed for the next 5 days to allow for punching and heavy sanding of the greens. (The North course still has not recovered from its punching/sanding on two week ago, so that means both courses will be less than fun to putt on for a while.

Otherwise, the course withstood the recent rains very nicely, other than some flooded bunkers. Still carts of path but actually the fairways were more then dry, but since I walk, didn't affect me.

Played on Saturday 2-18-17

My friend was able to get a 12$ hot deal with carts. Surprise! - no carts allowed and none of us were smart enough to call. Coincidentally I had taken my trolley out of the car which I never do. They were giving pull carts for free but did not have enough for the group.

Tees - some mud and longer than normal grass with some torn up areas
Fairways - some spots with standing water and many muddy areas but the grass is starting to come out of being dormant.
Bunkers - wet and hard packed with some standing water
Greens - slow but in fair to good shape overall, they still have some invasive grasses in areas

Overall the course is holding up pretty well to all the rain.

Played the course on Feb 6th. Rainy day in southern california which means fast round and cheap online tee times. Never played this course so was excited to play this one. Very nice course which is also challenging. Didnt get much roll on the fairway due to the wet fairways. Saw couple of twosomes on the course so i wasnt the only crazy golfer out there. Rain wasnt to bad the whole day and went away in middle of my round. Course was in great shape and would love to play this course again on a dryer setting

played this course on feb 17th. Got out around 1115 am and was done by 1pm. I only saw two more singles on the course behind me. The heavy rains the weatherman predicted started after my round was over. Course conditon was quite damp and was mainly cart path only on every hole. Still a enjoyable round

Played on Feb 10th. Booked this golf course due to being one of the cheapest golf course online. Didnt know what to expect and saw this course shopping at costco. My first instinct was it was a flat course with no character. Was i wrong. This course was actually pretty good. Lots of different types of holes with rolling fairways and elevation changes. Conditions of the course was above average and it was definetly worth the price i paid or the rack rate. Doesnt have any ocean views but the track itself is very challenging. It winds through a neighborhood but houses arent in play.

Played last week Feb 12th for my honeymoon week. Has to be the most scenic golf course i have played. Oceans views on maybe 7 of the holes, Lakes on maybe 5-6 holes. Course conditions are almost immaculate. Greens are almost putting on carpet. Fairways are better than most california munis. Bunkers were nice and raked and pace of play was about 3 and half hours. Marshalls come around with pineapple slices for the golfers. A must play in the Kauai Islands of Hawaii

Wanted to stay south of the Atmospheric Rivers crossing southern California so booked a Sunday mid-morning time at San Clemente, $44 walking rate. Super nice guy in the Pro Shop tossed us a range ball token to warm up, in fact, the entire staff I encountered were courteous and engaging. Stayed dry all day, actually, the course was remarkably very playable albeit an incredible amount of debris from the recent winds and rains which scattered the course. No casual water but a few semi-muddy areas to avoid. The Kikuyu is as green as I've ever seen Kikuyu and after the mowers get a chance to come out and give the fairways and rough a trim, will be outstanding to play from.

Greens looked a bit scruffy with various grass types, but actually rolled decent at medium pace. Relatively flat but very tricky to read if you do not play here as everything breaks to the Pacific ... we got fooled several times even with little 2 ft putts. Bunkers were not maintained and some had very wet sand at the bottom.

Interesting layout with some nice views of the ocean ... and a constant buzz from the nearby 5 freeway. Most of the front is flat (1-6) and traditional muni stuff but the back (12-18) winds up the hills thru the SC 'hood and can be a challenge if you're not familiar with the layout ... walkable but some steep elevations to negotiate. We were paired with a couple teenagers who helped us out and restored my faith in the next generation ... good kids. Would like to come back sometime after the greens get cut and the course gets cleaned up.

I'll be back this spring, for sure.

Played 2/16/17. POP was 4:35 for a weekday. Course made more difficult and less enjoyable due to green aerification performed on 2/13-14. Half of the greens were aerified, fertilized and heavily topdressed, creating challenging putting situations. On the sand topdressed half the greens were stimping around 4.5-5 while the non-aerified portion were around 9.5. Greens, 3 & 16, were completely aerified. The putting cups were full of sand making it very difficult to place a straight flag on the bottom of the cup. Coring plugs were dumped in the playing area, unmarked to the right of Hole #3. Did noticed the greens being rolled. The heavy rains over the weekend will certainly help sand wash into the coring holes and smooth out the putting surface.

The 2nd half of the greens are scheduled to be aerated the first week in March. I would hope that the greens will be completed healed and uniformed by April. Would be nice if Mgmt would offer some sort of discount and/or incentive to play half greens. Otherwise, be prepared to pay the full Southern CA resident rate of $64 to $83, depending on designated days.

This course lacks aesthetics and fair playing conditions. at times, due to their mowing practices (or lack of). I noticed this to be a trend on most of JC Resorts courses, the exception being Rancho Bernado Inn which is mowed more like a resort than a daily fee course.

Tees and roughs are dominated by Poa annua, which grows very rapidly during the Fall and Spring months. Tees were long and shaggy. You almost have to use a tee on the Par 3's, whether you want to or not.

Balls hit in the rough can be very difficult to find, especially with heavy dew. Our group lost 3 balls in the first 5 holes as we just missed or hit through the fairway. In areas previously mowed, the long clippings (hay) can hide the ball and create challenging shots. Blowing after mowing would be helpful.

There are also a lot of wet areas in the far roughs (right of #5 fwy for example) because mowers can't get in to mow without getting bogged down. Grass exceeds 6 inches in length in these areas. Even sunlight can't get through. The long roughs can add several strokes to your handicap and cause undue delays searching for errant shots.

Fairways were thinned in some area but generally have better Bermuda turf coverage than most of the surrounding courses. Fairways showed GUR on large bare areas. Carts are fairly new with GPS which we found yardages to be spot on.

Sand traps have good brown sand. Some greenside bunkers are slow to drain, with standing water. Traps were being edged during our visit. Would be nice if the workers moved to another area or cut off their equipment while we were blasting out of them. Tall broadleaf weeds, fescue and clumps of grass surround many of the fairway bunkers making it very difficult to create a shot.

Driving range is mats (20) only using Taylormade range balls in good condition. The walk area is about 150 yds from the clubhouse and first tee. The clock on the driving range doesn't work. Tasty premade sandwiches are available in the F&B area. 20oz soft drinks are $3, with craft beers $6 and up.

When this course is mowed out and the greens are fast and true, it is one of the best tracks in the North County area, well worth the money. Sadly, the existing conditions are typically found on a municipal type courses making it difficult to justify the cost to play while just adding punishing strokes to your handicap. We're planning on returning in mid-April.

I never believed in Heaven on earth until I played Wolf Creek. By far the most fun and scenic course I have played. I don't know how anyone could have a bad time here, the course is perfect, the staff is awesome, the food is great and the beer is cold. I have had many friends suggest Wolf Creek to me, so my expectations were very high, and the first thing I did when I finished my round was call them and thank them. If you have a bad time at Wolf Creek, you don't know what a good time is. Don't need to be long off the tee, mostly target golf which makes the Wolf Creek GPS app very helpful, and once you are on the green, get ready to have some fun. Only an hour outside of Las Vegas, and worth every minute of the drive, you won't want to leave. In fact, if you don't want to leave, take advantage of their $45 replay rate (Hottest deal in town). The maintenance that it must take to upkeep the place has to be ridiculous, but they do a fantastic job. Every employee I talked to made me feel welcomed, the golf shop staff, the restaurant staff, outside services, and I even had a maintenance guy stop on his way bye to see how my day was going. You won't find a course or staff like theirs anywhere which is why Wolf Creek is a must play!!! You can call and thank me later.
