I played this course about 10 years ago in the winter. Thought it was a classic, but maybe overrated course. This weekend it was really nice. The landscaping changes made to reduce water usage really give the course an updated look. It was in great condition, and the fairways and greens were in great shape. The course was longer and...

A Classic golf course designed in 1929, one of the finest golf courses in San Diego. Very challenging with well protected small greens. Subtle slopes that make flat lies an exception. A joy to walk.

My kids have played as part of a high school golf event. The course is beautiful and they loved it. However, it is private and you must play with a member. And only people who live in the covenant can be members so good luck! But if you get the opportunity to play there, or there is a charity event... More

This is a really beautiful course. It is nestled in among some great houses and incredible trees and foliage. The course presents a challenge but is not impossible. There is very little water, but enough sand bunkers to be a challenge. The staff is very friendly and welcoming to guests (I was an out of town guest.) The price to... More

If you can get on this course you're in for a treat. It is a throwback to the old style courses like Riviera CC, Olympic Club in San Francisco.

This is a private club. So, the average person may not get an opportunity to enjoy this gem. The Golf course is one of the best and is old school , mature grounds. The club itself is a modern marvel. Over the decades this property has transformed form a simple club house to something out of a movie of the... More
