A fine balance between beauty and challenge is offered at this Southern California golf course.

You'll also find the greens to be quick and true: Read your putt correctly and your ball will find the hole. The new 2 Oaks Pub is positioned to overlook the 18th green and serves golfers a variety of ice cold craft beers, fun traditional cocktails and a fresh, tasty homestyle menu.

This is a sleeping gem of a golf course in North County San Diego. The course is well kept, although they just punched the greens so they were a little rough but otherwise it is a fun track and challenging. The restaurant sucks, but . . . the golf is great.

The Twin Oaks Golf Course is located on North Twin Oaks Valley Rd a few miles North of Highway 78 in San Marcos, California. There are houses on some of the fairways but there are also scenic mountain views. The course is fairly challenging with some narrow holes with unplayable native areas which can come into play. There are some... More

Well kept golf course. Reasonably priced and challenging but fair. Long ball hitters have an advantage, but strategic golf is really necessary as distances are deceiving and greens have multiple layers. Great fun, super staff. Snack bar sucks but that is the only knock. Hot in summer, cold in winter.

Twin Oaks is beautiful and really hidden in San Marcos. I found this area online looking for wedding venues and this one seems to be really popular. I made an appointment to come down from LA and look around and of course find out pricing. We were on time and the staff kept us waiting 10 minutes, then they cut... More

Although the course itself is not in that great of shape it's a fun course and very scenic. Price is right and staff is very friendly and accommodating. Just what us average golfers were looking for.

I have played this course a dozen times and I like it better each time I play there. The staff is great, the golf carts are decent, and the course is reasonably well designed. It can be slow on a busy day, but if you play during the week, you can keep up a fast pace. Overall a great bargain... More

This golf course looks and feels very old and tired. The price is too high for the condition of the course and the amenities. No GPS on the golf cart. Go somewhere else.

I played today at Twin Oaks in San Marcos. The course has some narrow holes and some that are wide open. It is usually in good shape. Like all JC courses it is overpriced. The staff is friendly and helpful.

I was treated with absolutely no repect from the head pro himself. Other than the customer service the cart staff provided me this one of my worst golf experiences I have ever had and as an avid golfer for the last 20 years that really says something about this establishment
