Played in a men’s club tournament and this was my first time playing the new or revamped south. I must say there are only a handful of holes that are different. Most notably would be

4-left side of the fairway is shaved down bringing the cliff more into play. The green side bunker is also smaller.
9-there is a new bunker that sits about 50 yds from the green in the middle/right side of the fairway. Behind the green there is about 30 yds shaved down.
10-the bunker on the left fairway was moved up,quite a bit. I guess for those that lay up off the tee this would be a factor. The bunker on the right I think is still the same, it might have been moved more towards the fair away.
17-like 4 the left is shaved down to bring the canyon into play more. The trees on the right are all gone so you’re better off just aiming way right.

Overall the course needs more time to grow back. I’d wait until after the October maintenance to get out here. The greens were good maybe just a tad shaggy and a little slow for my taste. Not too many marks thou which was nice. The collars around all the greens are new and shows.

There is suddenly a sand surplus in San Diego now because all the bunkers were really soft. We had some real buried lies in the bunkers. Also the back 9 bunkers were not raked. I was not in a fairway bunker but they all looked the same.

Fairways were ok. There were areas right before the greens that were new and needs time to grow. Areas were there was no work done were actually quite nice. So it’s a mixed bag one this one.

Rough is down and there still seems to be areas which still look like construction zones. Just really depends on the lie that you got.

I’m not sure if every tee box was redone but you can tell there are some because you can see the sod lines. Still it was fine to tee off from.

As a resident I didn’t mind paying the fee but if you are fee conscious or a non resident you’re better off waiting. Pretty crazy to think fall maintenance is right around the corner and then the course starts preparing for the farmers so one would think conditions should get better in the upcoming months.

Teed off this morning about 7:30 and finished right around 4 1/2 hours. Overall conditions are pretty darn good.

There was a lot of water out there which I assume was from the over night watering. I had several mud balls which seemed odd. It was a little warm towards the afternoon so maybe it was in preparation of the heat? Overall the fairways were great but obviously not a lot of roll out. There were a couple of roped off areas but they seemed to be small in size. It was cart path only on 2 holes (which I already forgotten).

Rough was not as deep as I remember but around the greens it'll get you attention. I didn't think it was too penal but not sure I would try ripping 3 woods out of them.

Bunkers were really good. They all seemed raked, at least the ones I noticed. Not too soft that balls embeded but not thin either that your shot hit clay or dirt.

Greens were great still a little soft as approach shots could make some pretty deep ball marks. The good news is I didn't really see much in the way of unrepaired ones. I thought the pace picked up quite a bit as the day wore on. The pins had some little sneaky breaks at the end near the holes. Needless to say I didn't drop any putts today, nothing new there.

Customer service was fabulous. Everyone from the guys in the club house, starter, marshal and the cart attendants were very gracious. The rack rate may be pretty pricey but I know they always have deals thru underpar, scga, etc. If you're holding one of those now might be a good time to consider using it.

It must be the new norm here. I knew the greens were being punched next week but they actually punched all the fairways this week. Some were fresher than others. The fairways they punched at the beginning of last week have grown in some so it wasn’t that bad. Newer fairways were a little dicey.

Greens were good. Firm and rolling out quite a bit. I thought the pace was a little faster than it looked. I seemed to run out my first putt a little more than I expected leaving quite a few comeback kneeknockers.

Rough is down and very playable. There were some wet areas where they hadn’t cut the grass and I did find one of there areas, that was fun.

I was in 2 green side bunkers and they were pretty soft. Seemed pretty consistent throughout the course.

All being said I’d probably hold off playing until after the maintenance. I have no idea how long this one will take to recover from. The maintenance done earlier this year seemed to take a lot longer to get back to normal which I hope isn’t the case this time around.

Teed off this morning at 6 and I thought we’d be one of the first off but there were groups going at 5:30. We still finished in 3:45 so pace was great. Place was quite busy with the junior worlds starting tomorrow.

I thought the greens were in pretty decent shape. Certainly a lot better than last time I was here. I’d say the greens are medium speed which is slow for here. Usually they roll quite quickly. I’m sure they will be rolled and cut this week. Still firm and they roll out quite a bit on approach shots still. Still ball mark issues but that’s always an issue which saw a couple of balls bounce off line.

Fairways are good and the rough is down so I think the course is pretty gettable right now. Tee box on 1 was moved up to the gold tee boxes but other than that everything was pretty normal. Even though the course is shut down this week hopefully conditions continue to improve and definitely worth a look if your a resident.

If I could copy and paste my last review I would but wanted to revisit the greens in this review since everything else is pretty much the same.

I thought it would take 2 weeks for the greens to recover and I still stick with that. I really have no idea what is going on with these greens. They are recovering so slowly this year. The greens have started to firm up too. They actually roll decently from a pace stand point but there are many ball marks both repaired improperly or not at all that you will more likely have to fix on your putts. It’s kind of scary that we are 5 weeks out of maintenance and this is an issue with summer around the corner.

Played yesterday morning a little before 8 and finished a little under 4 hours. No one ahead or behind us so it was like a private club today although the tee sheet was pretty full.

I thought the greens were a tad slower than normal. They however rolled really good though and not many ball marks out there. I believe greens 4, 9 and 13 were punched last week and still recovering.

Fairways were great to hit from. I don’t remember there being any issues. The carts come equipped with sand bottles so we did our part to fill in divots out there. Just FYI Hole 5 is punched.

Rough is thick. Not as thick as I have seen it before but still long and sticky enough or impact your shot and shot selection. A few times I just took a mid iron to get it back in play.

I was in one bunker and it was great. All other bunkers looked to have been raked and ample sand.

Customer service is always top notch here. Range was grass this day which is nice because I always have a hard time teeing it up in the artificial grass that have. If you’re a stickler about the greens not being punched then you may want to wait a week for the other 3 greens to heal otherwise an enjoyable experience.

Teed off this morning at 6 and was back at the car heading home at 9:30 so the pace was outstanding. Overall the course is still recovering from the maintenance and needs a little more time to heal. Greens were slow for my taste. I just could not judge the right speed. Maybe I’m accustomed to the pace being quicker on these greens. Some greens have haled better than others as some of the punched holes are still visible on a handful. Fairways are good and probably have recovered the quickest of anything. I still saw some holes but they would be in a small area not the entire fairway thou. Rough was a little down but could settle down making some shots tricky. Overall course is coming in nicely but may be better to wait a couple of weeks for the course to fully recover.

Was 2nd off yesterday as a 3some following what seemed to be regulars in the first group. Not as fast as I expected to play being second off as the first group took their time. Still finished at 4 hours thou.

Greens have small holes punched but this didn’t effect putts in my opinion. The number of ball marks both unrepaired and repaired improperly were more of an issue. They rolled apfaster than they looked. Ran the first few putts quite a bit past the hole.

Fairways just ok. They are decent but there are just various spots throughout like different grasses/weeds/dead spots, etc.

Rough was actually surprisingly thick in a good number of areas. I actually almost lost a couple in there. There are areas that are not bad at all wouldn’t impact your shot selection so just be careful.

Sand was great. I was in a couple and they were raked nicely and ample sand. I was just in green side but fairways looked a little firmer.

I’d say it’s 50/50 right now, I’ve done seen better conditions and I’ve seen worse.

Went out today as the second group out so pace was not a problem.

A little disappointed in the greens. They were lightly sanded which I think was in anticipation of the upcoming rain. Going off that early was even a little sand on the greens resulted in balls picking the grains of sand. I think this slowed down the speed of the greens. A couple of greens have some fungus too. At least I think it’s a fungus. It looks like yellow spots on the greens similar to what happens in your home on the ceiling if there was a water leak.

Fairways 11, 12 and 16 were sanded and pretty significantly too. They actually had guys out there dumping the sand and going back over it with that contraption similar to raking a baseball infield. Other than these there are certainly some patchy areas in the fairways and then there are some really good areas. It’s just a crap shoot right now.

Rough is a mixed bag too but I was surprised that there were some really thick parts on the course. Of course the further away you were the more likely it was to be thinner.

A few tee boxes were a little unlevel and the par 3 has divot damage but you’ll find a spot to tee it up from.

Overall just ok. Hopefully this rain comes as expected to get the sand in the soil and get these greens back to great again.

Played Nado yesterday and was 3rd off as a 3some. Got off a little earlier than my time and. There was a 2some behind us and no one behind them for several holes. Rain or the threat must have scared people off. Finished right at 3 hours.

Overall conditions are meh. Some greens still show signs of punching. Some greens have a fungus. Some have dead/dry areas. Practice green also has some fungus on it too. Greens didn’t roll that well. I struggled with the speed all day, never did really get a ball to the hole.

Fairways are ok. Again there were areas where the punching is still coming back. Generally good lies.

Rough is non existent so it’s playable.

Tee boxes need a trim and the tee box on 9 needs to be leveled.

Id probably wait in playing here until a little bit better conditions. Usually I like the greens here but I think right now they just need a little more time to heal.

Played on Friday and today. Friday they were punching the fairways on 9 and 18. Today there were punching 16 and 17. Those are really not bad as the holes are pretty far apart. You just had to clear out some of the debris that didn’t get blown away by the maintenance crew.

Everything else is still pretty good just maybe a tick lower than my previous review which I expected with maintenance scheduled for next week.

Played the Sunday after the lpga and overall the conditions are fantastic. We teed off at 11 and finished a hair above 4 1/2 hours so it wasn’t too bad but felt worse because we waitress on every shot.

Greens are great. They were soft and while they didn’t look fast they rolled out more than you think. There were some brutal pin placements out there that made the undulations that much more pronounced.

Fairways were also great. I wish I hit more of them to take advantage when f those conditions but I was all over the place exploring the other parts of the course.

Rough was not as thick as I remember it being last year after the tournament but still not plenty thick to impact shots.

I don’t remember being in a bunker but I didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary. We played the back tee boxes and those were fine, always found a place to tee it up.

Customer service was top notch as it always is. I’m not sure when it is supposed to be punched but it’s definitely worth cehcking out right now.
