  • Only dropped by for a visit. Didn't play. People at the cafe were extremely friendly. Old and weathered place, but great family atmosphere
  • This is a fun coarse with a good mix. Some wide fairways, narrow fairways, long holes, and elevation change. If your walking save some gas for heartattack hill. Currently $32 with your resident card.
  • This is for the 9-hole course. Fairly basic executive length course. Nothing noteworthy good or bad about it. Not the best deal for non-residents. Staff was very friendly.
  • I wouldn't recommend this course. There are a couple of good holes, the best being the par 5, 16th. I walked but be warned there are a few hills. The general condition was poor but they had floods a couple of weeks before. The greens were ok. Be warned, play is very slow. Three hours for the first 9 holes, five and a half to complete the round.
  • Great municipal course with many memorable holes. Biggest negative for me is cart paths are everywhere and sometimes too close to canyons, fairways and greens making for bad breaks. Great views, small greens, elevation changes, hawks overhead, jets landing, often windy. If you drive ball and putt well you can score but if you are off your game it can be a long day. Relatively challenging walk. Not a beginner's course.

Where to stay in San Diego

Offering accommodations at a wide range of price levels, San Diego is one of the easiest cities to stay in, regardless of whether you're simply passing through or hanging around for a long vacation. If you don't mind splurging, book your stay at a luxury downtown hotel or a lavish bayside resort. You can also rent a spacious private cottage within walking distance of the city's popular beaches. For a more affordable alternative, try a family-friendly hostel or quaint inn in a quiet residential area.
