Using our vacation plan, 2 days in - the course is perfect for me - I haven't played in months & actually got 3 pars & this was a challenge for me☺️. There were lots of leaves that could have been mowed over or blown away. Staff at the Welk are Great!!!

Staying at the resort, wanted to improve minimal golf skills, so attended free 1/2 hour clinic, then signed up with Eric, a pro who taught the clinic, and he helped tremendously. He was easy to understand and integrate into technique. The course is forgiving to amateurs but nice enough for more experienced. Friendly staff too.

The good, is the very friendly staff and the greens are in nice shape. The bad is the rest of the course, which is sad. Even the markers at each tee box looks like they have not seen any new paint in many years. It is a fun course, if you don't mind having telephone polls and the wires in... More

Played this 18 hole (not 27) par 3 course today. While others have said it is the best Exec course in the area, I have to disagree. This is not an Executive course. It is a tight little par 3. Consider it more of 18 holes of short iron practice. If you are looking for that, then this course will... More

This is a very well maintained executive course that penalizes wayward shots. I'm not the best golfer, but I enjoyed the challenging par 3 and par 4 holes (no par 5's). There isn't a lot of water to contend with, but the changing elevations and narrow fairways require constant management. The resort offers free golf instruction on full swing, putting,... More

Used a groupon voucher for two rounds of golf, ball, tees and pro instruction! The pro, Josh, was very knowledgeable, patient and friendly! The course is nice, great for beginning golfers too! Will play here again!

Probably the best executive course in SD County. Located in Rancho Bernardo, it offers 27 holes of golf. Great place to play and upgrade/practice your irons, short game and putting. Usually in very good shape.
