I played Encinitas Ranch. I have not been able to golf alot since our daughter was born on 6/1 but I was able to play Sunday 7/22/2018. Overall the course is in good summer shape and the ocean breeze beats the heat.
My dad and I teed off around 10:30 with another twosome. I played the green tees. The blue tees here seem to place the tee boxes in weird spots that try to maximize the distance on the card. Dad played the white tees which are very forgiving for a senior. He was able to reach the greens in regulation on the majority of holes something I don't think he could have done playing from the green or blue tees.
Alot of the tee boxes have small slopes but not enough to seriously impeded your swing. The fairways are pretty good but they were a little thinner than I remembered them with some bare spots on the edges of the fairways.
The greens are in good shape they held all manner of shots and rolled nicely. I do not think the bunkers were raked Sunday morning and the sand was a little firm in them.
The ocean views were nice and I was just great to get out and golf. The price is a little higher than I wanted to pay but its my dads favorite course.» Close
