I played Encinitas Ranch on 1/2/17. There had been rains in the days before and the course was cart path only. This place did seem to drain a little better than the Crossings after the rains.
The tees overall were pretty good level with good grass coverage. There were a few that were not level and the par 3 tees were quite chewed up.
The fairways are in very good condition with a few divot marks but overall good grass coverage.
The greens were a little worse than the last time I played. There are still bare spots around the collars of a lot of greens. There are un repaired divot marks that have since mutated into small bare spots on some holes. With that being said the greens rolled true when not in line with a bare spot and were pretty fast even after the rain.
I was not in a sand trap but I did not see any standing water in them (overall looked good).
My dad loves this course because it plays to his slice, is pretty short from the white tees and has very large greens.» Close
