I love the game and play by the rules. I have been playing for over 30 years, so I get a little serious with my own game, but realize others aren't serious most of the time and don't let what they are doing on the course affect what I am doing. I like to play all over the place and like the course conditions to be better than average.

First one's out, Sat morning around 6am. POP was good, 3hrs, me and my buddy. We had to wait the first 5 holes on the grounds crew to mow the greens, so that affected the POP a little.
I've never seen this course in such good shape. We discovered about 4 holes in that they were having the Oceanside City Championship right behind us. That probably had a lot to do with the epic conditions. They put custom flags in, all were yellow with championship logo, so we needed a pin sheet when we made the turn, a little frustrating because they had pins super tucked and we didn't know pin placement, guessing game.
Everything tee to green was pretty awesome. Tee boxes were at the tips and they were great. Fairways were just about perfect. Greens were awesome, very receptive and quick downhill. I didn't find a bunker, but they looked just fine. If you can get out there in the next couple days, do yourself a favor and do it. $42 to ride on saturday was good deal. I've always loved this layout.» Close

Played yesterday, Sunday. Teetime 9:30. POP pretty awful 5.5hrs, this course always plays slow, I just don't get it, but you know to expect a slow day and just prepare for it.
Course is in good overall condition. Teeboxes were nice and level, good coverage. They had the markers stretched out across the whole teebox, kinda interesting. You had like a 20yard wide span to choose from. Fluffy bermuda. Fairways were in pretty good shape, fluffy bermuda as well, not much roll. Had one bad lie in a sandfilled divot, but all other times were good. Rough was not too penal, no problems to hit from the rough. Found one bunker greenside and it sucked, wet hardpan underneath a an inch of good sand, avoid the bunkers right now. Greens were in good shape, ran smooth and held shots very well. They were a little slick downhill. Good course to walk, $47 weekend walk rate, not too bad. I would play there more often if they could speed up play, waited half hour on par3 7th, really sucks.» Close

Rat-patrol had a good info. I played Sunday, teed off around 3:30 and finished at dark, around 7:45ish. POP was ok, we waited on the back nine quite a bit.
Overall, course is in good condition. Fairways were pretty darn nice and I did get a little roll out on most of them. Teeboxes weren't that level, they had ok coverage, but I had to take a moment to find a good level spot. Found one trap and it was just fine, no complaints. To me, the greens were darn near perfect, about as good as I've ever seen them at Balboa. They rolled very true and smooth and held shots very well. I couldn't believe they weren't bumpy that late in the day.
Service was great, lady in the bar was sweet. The starter was nice, he let me go out before he stated at first and my card was expired, he said to take care of it next time. Halfway house girl was super funny and nice, had a nice chat with her.
All things considered, get on out there, it's in great shape right now.» Close

Played July 3rd, pretty much crowded day, most people took the day off for the 4th of July holiday, but it kept moving after the 2nd hole, we had to wait on a few shots, but overall POP was 4.5hrs, which was great for a holiday.
Overall, the course is in good shape. Teeboxes were a little chewed up, but usually found a good spot to put the tee. Fairways were in very good condition, never had a bad lie and they offered some roll on several occasions. Rough was brutal in some spots, stay out of it. Found one bunker and it was just fine, no issues. Greens were good for the most part, but they didn't seem to hold shots very well. If you had more than a 9 iron going into the green, you could expect about 3-5yds of release. They were very fast going downhill and were "grainy" towards the ocean. Stay below the hole.
All things considered, it's in good shape. Thoroughly enjoy the layout, don't play here that often. It was a good workout to walk with my pull cart. $31 walking rate that day.» Close

Played Sunday, 7/25. $45 clickitgolf deal, included lunch and a drink (beer of course). Totally worth it for a Sunday at 11am. POP 4hrs, no problem. I have played this course once before, years ago. I'm not in love with the course layout. It goes through a tract of homes, not my cup of tee. It's a Ted Robinson design, so it's fun, but pretty short, played from the blues cuz I walkd on as a single and the other 3 guys played from the blues, I'm on the fence on this issue, any advice is welcome, do I stick to my guns and play from the tips? it's always an awkward situation, I should start a forum conversation.
Anyway, Conditions were pretty good, overall.
Teeboxes were level, a little chewed up, but you could find a good spot with little effort.
Fairways were nice, had good lies all day. Mown at good height with appropriate roll.
Rough was penalizing, but not unfair. Good coverage, nice and lush.
Found two traps on the same hole, number 14, they were horrible, hard pan and muddy. Give them a pass.
Greens were pretty darn good. Held shots appropriately and putted fairly true. Downhill, forget about it, no chance! Uphill, fire away and sink it.
Overall, had a good time. Must play course? probably not in my opinion, but I'm an idiot and my opinion is pretty much meaningless, at least that's what I hear from my wife.
Good value and I'm not dissapointed I played there, just not my fave.» Close
