First time playing here. Used underpar deal and teed off at 11:30 Sunday. POP 4:45
Pace of play was slow due to 2 tournament so I'll give that a pass. There were multiple marshals on top of things.
This course is in fantastic shape right now. The fairways are nicer than most courses greens currently. The fairways are trimmed thin and hard packed for bonus rolls making the course play shorter and more accessible.
Greens were in great shape however no one repaird their ball marks which was odd. I mean no one.
Bunkers were in phenomenal shape. The edges were cut perfect, with excellent even sand and plenty of it.
Tee boxes were level and lush with moderate tee damage.
The layout is a blast. I loved the risk reward drivable par 4's on the front. The back nine is the real treat here. I would say this course has arguably the best stretch of finishing holes in San Diego in competition with Balboa, Coronado, La Costa, and Torrey.
The island green par 16th is a special hole, capable with competing with holes anywhere.
The only downside was the staff was a little rude when we used our free replay. I love the layout. The fairways are wide but there is no rough. Your ball is either on the fairway or OB. This course places a great emphasis on approach shots vs driving ability. Which I prefer. Lots of fun bunker protected elevated greens.
Only thing they need to fix are the distances on the par 3's. Literally and I mean literally every par 3 is the same exact hole. An elevated par 3 170 yards. I hit a 6 iron into every par 3 with the same shot every time. That was a little tedious. However this is a special course I will add to my rotation. The final four finishing holes and forced water carry on 18 are awesome holes.» Close
