Not going lie, and will start this out with it...I will be back to the course despite the following review simply because I grew up playing this course and it's 5 minutes from my house.
Played monday 6/21, had an 0600 tee time. Got there a little early and the nice lady in the pro-shop said we could go out whenever we were ready (we were a 2-some). We headed out around 545 or so, with the intent of flying around. On hole 6, the sprinklers were on over the entire back half of the hole (from about 225 and in), and given that this is one of the shorter holes on the course it pretty much rendered the hole unplayable. On hole 7, there was a full maintenance crew working on the green, so we decided to skip it thinking we could get ahead of the workers and stay out of their way. Right after teeing off on hole 8, the maintenance guy speeds past us and goes for the green. He waited until I hit into the green and then proceeded to move the cup (after I had hit into the green) and do a hand punch (aerification) of about half the green while we're standing there waiting to finish out the hole. Move on to 9 - no problem because the maintenance guy jumped us and went to 10. We did see a crew doing some major work on 13 at this point, figured it'd be done by the time we get there (we were first out for the day). Catch up to him again on 11 and he's moving the flag on the green, again. We play out the hole hoping it gives him enough time to go hit number 12. Tee on on 12 (par 5) and by the time we get to the 2nd shot, there is no flag on the green, they're mowing and moving the pin again. Get to 13 and it plays as normal hole with the sole exception that the green had been fully punched. Couldn't even finish the rest of the course because every hole was covered in plugs from being punched (which btw there was zero notification on the course website when I booked it last week, and I don't believe there was any price reduction as a result either) and did not have a flag. The grounds crew was on hole 14 - and there were many people behind us. Couple groups were catching up quick too, so I can only imagine that they weren't able to finish either.
Course conditions themselves were mediocre at best. Have seen it in much better shape and have seen it in worse shape. Fairways were thin (esp. no. 1 and 16). Bunkers were either soft and fluffy (no 10 was very nice) or hardpan concrete like...just depended which one you were in. Like I said at the beginning, I'll definitely be back but they definitely need to work on course management and maintenance management here.» Close

2nd time I've played this course, and it might be the last. Played 10 holes in just over 3 hours here on Friday afternoon. I know that this is a resort course and that Friday PM is a busy time, but there is zero reason it should take this long. They made a point to tell us that they had 404 golfers going out AFTER 12pm that day. When you're waiting 10-15 minutes on EVERY shot...you know you're overbooked. For what they charge ($90 for socal resident), you could easily space the tee times out further. I think the other downgrading factor here - being that Legoland is so close - people who shouldn't be playing this course are out here. People who shoot 100+ shouldn't be playing the tough up/down courses with high slope ratings, OR, should have a standard "if I lose it, i'll drop from up ahead" mentality instead of climbing through bushes and spending so much time searching for the balls. When we decided to bail, we drove through 11-18 in hopes we'd find an empty hole or two and play a few more, but it was packed and people were waiting at every hole. Like traffic on the 405, i'd avoid this every time I can going forward.
Course itself was in decent shape - boxes were pristine. Fairways were awful (maybe just dormant?) but the greens were immaculate. Would play on these greens anytime. Just not with the god awful pace of play.» Close

Played friday early AM. We were the third group off, and we didn't catch anyone the whole time. Boxes were hit or miss - guessing that a lot of people don't play from the backs there so they tend to focus their maintenance efforts on the whites/reds. Fairways were spotty. Some had good coverage, some were very thin, and on a couple had some significant dead spots on them. Greens were in great shape. If not for the grounds crew soaking them on every hole as we came up on them (turning sprinklers on, standing there with the hoses, etc.) they would have been fantastic. This course is not a hard course, but does feature one of my favorite walks in all of san diego - from the fairway to the green on number 16, where you see the canal in the background - so pretty. Little pricey for what you get, but given that tee times are so hard to come by now, I would gladly go back. This course isn't going to wow you with views or difficult holes, but it's a fun little track to get a round in and hang with some buddies.» Close
