I’ve played fancy courses and country clubs all over and this is not one of those. BUT I loved the course. I can’t wait to play it again. I think it is better than Tourey Pines and it’s a fraction of the price. This is my number one recommendation for theSD area!!

Historic old school track has much character. Not long but you better hit it straight here, and the greens are no picnic either. Well worth it if you're in the San Diego area but pace of play can be slow at times.

Fantastic true and FAST greens. Good selection of holes, a couple are rather quirky. Course is carved through the canyons with lots of elevations. Pro shop staff are great and very helpful. This is a must play when in San Diego - and remember it is a Muni. Breakfast at the restaurant is a local secret - one of the best joints in the city.

Great course for high handicappers as all holes are reachable in regulation even for those that only hit their driver 210. 5 par 4s, 4 par 3s, you can use all your clubs. Get their early and your round will often only take an hour and a half. I often go before work and play at dawn.
