First off at twilight on 9/5, POP 4 hrs 15 mins. Warm, but the breezes coming through the canyons make it much nicer. Course is in decently playable shape, rough is thick (gotta love city courses they can afford to water like that! LOL), fairways mostly good in the areas you should be playing from, but there are some dried out/burnt out/thin areas, tee boxes ok, bunkers thin but consistent and playable, greens were fast and the pins were tucked (women's club tourney in the morning, they had it playing tough for them gals!).
Overall a good play, not great (the glory days before Candice and Sinclair were sent off to Torrey are long gone) it is a muni, but the greens are rolling well and the place is getting plenty of water!
Played yesterday, 8/29, and I could basically copy and paste Jays review. Mostly green and plush with some dry spots, greens very nice (I did fix quite a few fresh ball marks and saw many more ill-repaired marks and some where no one even bothered trying) bunkers were in excellent condition and pop was under 4 hrs. Recommended!
Played on 8/11 at just after noon GK Cup match vs Sr714. Word for the day would be sticky, the rough was sticky, the fairways were sticky (very little run out if at all), the weather was sticky, everything was sticky except the greens. Unless you threw a high spinning shot in the ball most times just bounced and rolled off the green. The greens rolled at medium speed, were mostly smooth with some bumps along the way. The course was in good shape, lots of water being used, but I honestly don't remember it being such a tough play, danger lurks everywhere . . . trees, weeds, canyons, deep high faced bunkers, water, forced carries, long holes that play into the prevailing wind and usually nowhere to bail out. We played the blues, the twosome we played with the blacks(they had no business whatsoever playing blacks as their drives never came close to ours) it would have been a quicker, dinner round if we all played whites. Don't let the yardage fool you and believe the slope, this course plays long and difficult.
Not a big fan of a couple of holes on the back, a 400 yard hole you are forced to hit 5 iron off the tee? A 350 yard hole with a 200 yard forced carry straight into the wind?
Played with Gary00 at 11:30 finished in around 4.5 hrs. Hadn't played there in over 20 years and didn't remember a thing . . . but of course the trees have all grown and there are now houses (not in play at all). Obviously I thoroughly enjoyed the course, especially the greens. The place has obviously gotten lots of water and is great shape, except as Gary noted the bunkers which are simply hard wet sand. The layout is fun with the back 9 playing more difficult than the front. Nice variety of holes that keeps you interested. It won't be 20 years again, in fact I need to put this course on my menu for more frequent consideration! :)
Played on Tuesday, second off at twlight, finished in just under 5 hours. Course is in good shape with, tees being good, fairways nice, rough cut down but still sticky, bunkers good sand, greens running slower than I am accustomed to and rock hard. Worth it right now.
First off at twilight July 11. Paired with two women who played fast, mostly kept the ball in play (and when they didn't they took the proper drop quickly and moved on) and were having fun, what an absolute joy to play with them . . . and why can't all golfers be like that?

The course is in good playable shape right now.
Tee boxes: mostly level, the par 3 17th tee box appears to have not moved in a few days, all tore up
Fairways: some dry patches but always had a good lie
Rough: minimal but sticky
Bunkers: very nice, good sand and mostly smooth except for some areas lazy or inconsiderate golfers played from
Greens: very good, not as pure and fast as the practice green ( which was in excellent condition, all greens should be so good)
POP: just over 4 hours

Recommended for a fairly inexpensive round of golf, she ain't fancy but she's my girl.
Always enjoy playing Mt Woodson and was even better today with great weather and GKers to play with. Course is in great shape with greens being a bit soft but still putted very well. Everything was how a course should be condition wise and the layout is always challenging and fun. A bit out of the way but well worth the effort.
Played 5/9 on a cloudy but warm day. The course is in decent muni condition, very playable with the greens about 95% back from punching. Fairways have some rough areas around the edges mostly, never had a bad lie. Bunkers are well maintained with texture on the firm side, very good to play from. Played in just over 4 hours, second out at twilight.
Played the Canyon/Ranch on a birthday deal (thanks Steele Canyon!). Found the course to be in great shape, greens have fully healed rolling well at medium speed and accepting well struck shots perfectly. Fairways were in good shape with decent roll out, good to hit from. Rough is minimal, bunkers were firm in some and fluffier in others, but all were a pleasure to play out of. Customer service was great, POP was 3.5 hours as the place was pretty empty (I have never seen the parking lot that empty on a beautiful day like today?) Get out there and play it, especially if you can find a deal!
Played 4/16 with Sal, Tim and Brady. First off the entrance to the parking lot is a bit hard to find (speakeasy?) with the sign for the restaurant obvious and the one saying you have arrived at Aviara a bit obscured by hanging vines and not so prominent lettering . . . but enough for the bad, on to the good!
Tees: we played Whites as we were told the yardage is deceiving and look to the slope
tees were mostly flat with good coverage
Fairways: nice to play from with a decent amount of roll, rolling contours, rarely a flat lie, maybe not as tricky as the PGA Stadium course but still quite challenging
Rough: STICKY! with a capital STICK! stopped errant shots dead in there tracks and made advancing the ball in any civilized (controlled) fashion near impossible
Traps: sand was nice, firm in some spots a bit fluffier in others, but readily playable
Greens: some had been punched and sanded but still rolled OK, others were slick and mostly smooth, properly struck shots stuck, others did not
Layout and surrounds: the course starts off more forgiving, mostly from the tees as all the greens have big contours, and then gets a bit tighter as you go along (there is nowhere to land driver safely on the par 5 10th hole)The course is beautiful with many water features and fantastic landscaping! Yes kids, Disneyland for golfers! Nicest course I have played in SD
Customer service: EXCEPTIONAL as would be expected at an upper tier resort, saw the snack cart multiple times, order from your cell to the halfway house, check in, starter all great! Small putting green, small driving range, nice pro shop
Overall: Glad I finally got to play Aviara and will be back to try and play it smarter!
Played at 11:20 with some pals from work. Got off on time and while we were waiting Slim Shady put $5 down for the charity try to hit the tiny target in the water 30 yds away and he skipped one off the water into the hole and one a foursome amazing!
Tees: we played the whites and they were a bit chewed up but you could find a spot
Fairways: nice to hit from, a bit of roll
Rough: there isn't much here, just on the edges of play, the canyons are the hazards
Bunkers: the ones I was in were great, firm sand but pretty consistent
Greens: punched three weeks ago and are almost all the way back, slight bumps but rolled decently at medium speed
Customer service: great, I was asked at the desk if I was over 55 and got a discount (first time for me ever)of $5
Overall: fun yet challenging course in very good condition, greens should be totally back soon
Went out at 1:40 ahead of twilight by myself, walking, then was joined by a single, walking, as I was getting ready to tee off and we were joined by a third in a cart at the third tee box. No one in front of us we played in just under 4 hours. Course is in decently playable muni condition with the exception of the greens which most were really nice with a couple being a bit bumpier and the bunkers that were perfect IMHO, as I knocked one in for bird and got up and down the other times. They will be doing work next week.
