This another great course to play if ever in San Diego, Ca, the view was so beautiful and the course was one of the most beautiful course I have ever played. next to Torrey Pines, it is second on the golf bucket list to play.

The course was in great shape. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Pace of play was great. Some unique holes that are challenging. We will play it again on next trip.

City owned 18 and 9 hole executive course. Good test for all levels of golfers. Greens are firm, fast, and fair. Good food at Clubhouse and on turn on full course.
