I found this course to be nothing special. I expected more for the price. There are a couple of views of the ocean way in the distance--if there is no marine layer. There are probably better courses in the area for the money.

On a clear day you can see north to San Juan and south to La Jolla - of course you mainly gaze at the wide Pacific ocean.
The course has an above average number of unique and interesting holes: blind tee shot over a 180 yard hill, dogleg left with water on the right (#1 HC hole), elevation changes and a 200+ yard carry from the blues.

You can't go wrong here. Bring a cigar in case the #4 hole backs up in the mid to late morning on the weekends.

The price is over valued IMO. I found the fairways were in average condition. Not really special. I would rank it next to a city municipal condition. It is fine. The greens where battered. They looked like a dart board. The greens are rock solid and are icy fast. You must warm up on the practice greens to have any chance here. If you are not familiar with the speed of the greens you will 3 putt the first nine!
Fairways are pretty wide and not that many OB issues. Yet still challenging.
This course is walkable if you enjoy walking.
The pace on Sat afternoon was a little over 5 1/2 hours. Slowest pace I have seen in my entire life, not sure if this is normal there? Everyone was in carts!
I would play here again for no more than 55$ The Crossings is about 8 miles away and for the price a way better value, and about 5 times better.
So, extremely fast challenging greens, greens also in below average if not "poor" condition. That weekend was incredible slow pace! And a bit over priced. Other than that had a wonderful time! Seriously, I did.
