This course is just over 50 years old. When it was first opened, greens generally were maintained with what would now be termed a Stimp of 7 or 8. With modern techniques greens can easily run at a Stimp of 12 or 13. That is often a bad idea. Such is the case at Pala Mesa. I putted extremely well,... More

Which isn't saying much, poor size coffee pot. Adequate and convenient to our destination. We didn't try the restaurant.

Found this course through San Diego Golf Guide. It was a 35 minute drive north of Carlsbad where we were staying. Would have been less if we didn't get caught by so many traffic lights. When driving up to the course, noticed some holes along the highway and they looked narrow. The fee wasn't too bad at $62 per player,... More

This is an interesting, challenging golf course that is typically well maintained and managed. I have never stayed there. There is a driving range and a well stocked pro shop. It is worth the 45 minute drive from my home. Since it is inland, it is hot in the summer months.

The 'Stay and Play' Package includes two rounds of Golf on a Championship Course. a very nice Room. A Bar and Restaraunt that exceeds expectations and a very pleasant staff. All for around a $100 per person. Hard to Beat. a Great Deal.

The golf is challenging. Aquaterra the restaurant is awesome. And they have fun events on the weekends in the summer. Great venue for weddings and parties not to mention corporate events as well.

This course was in pretty good shape although some fairways had ground under repair of were just plain bare and dried out. Generally though, the course is a beauty with a lot of elevation changes and nice scenery. Fairways are generous, greens not tricked up. Pace was great, finished 18 in 3 1/2 hours. The course runs through some nice... More

The price was right, unlimited golf and a one night stay at the hotel for $169.00. We played the course at 11:00 am and 8:30 am. Neither time were we pressed as it appears the course does not get a lot of play on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The course was built, according to the tee flags, in 1963. It is... More
