The course is in the best shape that I've seen the past 5 years. I play here once a year in the San Diego Senior's team play, my Pala Mesa team vs El Camino. (we did win the match)

Greens: excellent; smooth, holding with medium fast speed.

Fairway: not a bad lie all day!

Rough: the kikuyu was 1-3" high and quite punishing if you were in the 3" grass.

Traps: firm but playable.

Good short game practice area but no driving range, only driving from mats into a net.

A challenging course, recommend playing here if you get an invite!

Played here on Tuesday AM, first time in a few weeks. The BIG surprise is that they are restocking the traps with SAND, amazing! This is a major addition for a muni!!!!

Greens: smooth, "holding" with medium to fast speed.

Fairways: beautiful, good lies all day!

Tees: many are uneven due to animal burrows, you just got to look around for a flat area.

Traps: now better than the usual hardpan, hope they maintain them. Great addition!

Rough: a zero; hardpan, weeds, and animal burrows.

Except for the rough, this old muni is really shaping up, give it a try!

Played in a Greenskeeper outing mid morning this Sunday. Always enjoyable playing with the GK guys.

This course is a favorite of mine. It's short but very challenging. Don't let the short yardage fool you. Friendly/helpful Staff!

Greens: better than average condition, medium to fast speed, soft greens, smooth except a few too many ball marks that were not repaired.

Fairways: very nice condition considering the excessive heat we have had over the past month, some brown spots but overall better than average.

Rough: 1 - 3 " high.

Traps: like many of the courses I've played recently, hard not a lot of sand.

Tees: Lots of divots but the management is rebuilding some of the T boxes.

No driving range but you can warm up hitting balls into a net, better than no warm up!

POP: around 4 hours.

Worth the drive up from Oceanside.

Played Friday (8/4) AM. Started on the back nine as there was some trees being removed on the front.

Good grass driving range and large practice green.

Greens: Medium to fast speed, holding but lots of old ball marks that were left behind by a private outing (of inconsiderate golfers) earlier in the week.

Fairways: generally in good condition but there are still many bare spots in the fairways.

Rough: 1-3" high with many bare spots.

Traps: good condition.

POP: 4 1/2 hours.

Played in a San Diego Senior match Tuesday AM. We lost but are still in the top spot, only 9 more matches to go.

Friendly staff in the Pro Shop, starter and in the restaurant after the match.

Greens: recently vert-cut and lightly sanded, a little bumpy. Medium to slow and holding.

Fairways: overall better than average.

Rough: 1-3" high.

Traps: raked, better than average.

POP: at 4 hours.

Really enjoyed playing here today. Wish it was closer to Oceanside as I would like to play here more often.

Played in a San Diego Senior team match on Thursday AM. First time here since last summer.

Customer Service: friendly staff at the bag drop, Pro shop and starter. Excellent service in the Gene Littler lounge after the round. We all had the typical sandwiches or salads which were very good.

Great practice area: driving range, two chipping greens and two putting greens.

Now for the course, WOW, best condition I've ever seen this place.

Greens: smooth, medium speed and firm.

Fairways: the best I've played on since Rams Hill, like a carpet.

Rough: 1-3" high with some bare spots

Traps: above average condition compared to most traps in the area.

POP: at 4 hours

I was very pleased to get an invitation to play here on Thursday late morning. Only played here once before, 3-4 years ago.

Customer service: Excellent; a cart pulled up as I parked my car. The young man was helpful getting me pointed in the correct direction. Friendly attendant in the Pro Shop.

Nice driving range and putting areas. Practice green was much faster than the greens on the course.

Fairway: very wide, firm and in good condition.

Greens: smooth, medium to fast, and "holding"

Rough: 2-3" high, very playable.

Traps: firm.

POP: just over 4 hours.

A very enjoyable day, play there if you get the opportunity!

Got to play here on 7/3, mid morning for the first time this year. As you drive in to the club house you notice the new white sand traps and the lush green fairways. Just a beautiful, peaceful setting!

They were quite busy today with POP at 4 1/2 hours.

Greens: excellent condition, smooth, medium speed and "holding".

Fairway: neatly trimmed (what else your you expect from a Marine facility) and lush.

Rough: quite punishing with the rough at 3+ inches.

Traps: good condition but I forgot how a get out of a trap with sand. A couple of new traps added.

Real nice grass driving range and short game practice area.

Good customer service at the Pro Shop, starter and snack bar.

Played in a San Diego Seniors match on Friday AM. Haven't played here since last years match so I was looking forward to the match as this is one of my favorite courses. I was not disappointed in the conditions.

Greens: holding shots well as the greens were quite soft but a few too many unrepaired ball marks. Speed was medium.

Fairways: decent lies all day, couple of fairways had quite a few bare spots on the back nine, nothing that terrible.

Rough: 1-3" high, not that punishing.

Traps: firm, typical SoCal conditions.

Nice driving range and large putting green.

Cart service, twice on both nines.

Good GPS system on the carts.

Recommend!

Played here on 6/28 at 7 AM. No one here but the guy in the Pro Shop. Only the second time playing here.

Greens: really in great condition, smooth, holding and running at a slow to medium speed.

Fairways/Rough: a variety of grass on the fairway, not that bad. Real issue is if you miss the fairway by 2-3 yards you can end up 20-30 yards down into a valley because of the decomposed granite. If you are accurate, no problem!

Traps: well conditioned traps, some of the better traps I've been in the past few month.

Very confusing to navigate from the green to the next T box. Great "tips" sheet in the Pro shop is helpful.
Also, very hilly, tough to walk when you are in your mid 70's.
Grass driving range and two putting greens. Good to see the Pro conducting a junior golf class.

Played in a San Diego Senior match on Friday AM.

Gary00 was right on with his review on 6/19. The only thing I have to add is that the maintenance supervisor must have read your review as the traps were in very good condition, best I've seen them in quite a while. Might be for a Juniors event next week. Glad to see the improvements.

Finally got a chance to play Black Gold on Thursday, 6/8 in a GK outing. I was not disappointed.

Friendly staff in the Pro Shop. Cart attendants were very helpful.

Very demanding golf course, lots of elevation changes. Make sure you play the correct T's for your game. At 74 years of age with a 12 handicap, the Gold T's were the correct T's for me!

Greens: smooth, medium to fast speed and firm. Lots of contour to the greens.

Fairways: ball set up nicely in the fairway, many up hill, down hill, side hill lies, very challenging!

Rough: 1-3" high.

Traps: good sand in the green side traps.

Excellent GPS system in the carts, VERY HELPFUL for us first time players!

POP: at 5 hours.

Can't wait to get back here again, a MUST play!
