Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club
Enjoyable course in north county San Diego
My brother-in-law and I enjoyed playing this course with our friend and a pick-up partner named Jesse, who had played the course many times before. The conditions were excellent, and since it was the 2nd time on the course for me, I had a slightly better feel for it, and that improved my overall impression. The play was a little slow though, although you can't ever really blame that on course management; they have GPS units in all the carts, and the pro shop will send out little reminders if you aren't keeping up with the group in front of you.
We had a twosome behind us that got a little uppity and hit into us on the par 3 12th (while we were still on the green), but again, you can't blame mgmt for a couple of idiots.
The refreshment cart was fully loaded, and the course itself is aesthetically pleasing. Use the GolfNow app to get 10% off your first booking, and a deep discount off the $69 weekend fee.

This place has always been a hidden gem and today was no exception. Course is in phenomenal shape and the staff was very friendly. Must play course for the money thru golf now

Best trek for the money in the area
Always love playing the Ranch. Offers multiple looks and lots of carry. Hard to play consistent rounds there due to the difficulty and elevation changes.

Great golf course
The weather was great, the course is in great condition and the staff is friendly. Thanks to Brooke, our cart girl serving cold beer, it was more enjoyable. The only complaint I personally have is how long it took to play 18 holes.

What a tough course! You have double water holes, rocks, troughs, sand traps with boulders, etc. The scenery is lovely, the course is in great shape, but it's awfully hard.

Need a cart
Course was being spring under seeded and greens were being top dressed. Rules were cart path only. This makes for a ton of walking and slows the game way down. Would have been a fun course if carts were allowed.
