Played Balboa at 6am on 7/30. My partner and I breezed through in 3 hours, walking. Overall the course is in decent muni shape. Clearly, they have been watering the course quite a bit to combat the he... Continue »

Got out to Balboa this week in need of a confidence round and it did the trick. Got out there past noon so it was $21 + $5 for the push cart. Pretty great value if you ask me. We had some initial conf... Continue »

Another Monday morning at Balboa. $20 walking senior rate is well worth the money. The course is very playable and enjoyable. The greens continue to be excellent. They are smooth, medium/fast, and sof... Continue »
