Rancho Bernardo Inn GC
Love the ambience of this resort and course. Peaceful, lovely surroundings
Loved our round at Rancho Bernardo. Very friendly staff, great golf course Great snack bar with reasonable prices and fantastic homemade egg salad sandwich for $6.00. Pristine course and lovely amenities. Enjoyed a great round of golf with a terrific couple from Chicago area.
Love to play here!

Well maintained and challenging course. Great clubhouse and friendly staff. Definitely a must play course. Beautiful resort!

Resort style course with some variation of holes. Most fairways are fairly open but the green complexes make up for it in difficulty. The par 5 finishing hole is a little tricked up and requires a very precise approach shot to a virtually blind green.
The greens had been punched the previous two days so didn't give a true indication but even with dispersed sand on them they were pretty quick. An OK experience once I got past the pro shop but I wouldn't pay full fare to play here again.

Well Maintained value
Got a special aerification rate so we knew the conditions before we got there. But all in all the course is in good condition. It is obvious that a lot of work is being done in order to bring this great course back. They have redone some of the irrigation and improved some of the bunkers. (More bunker work is still needed.) But this is a nice layout with great staff and one of my favorite courses.

Incredible Course, Friendly staff, beautiful grounds.
First off we got a great price of $30.00 per player. The course was in great condition, the fairways were nice and the greens were true and fast. The staff was very attentive and friendly. They made you feel important instead of a bother like some other courses we've played. Everything lined up for a fantastic day of golf. The weather, the course, the staff made for a wonderful time. Will definitely be back once the course is done being aerated.

Some interesting holes.
In another month the condition of this course will be great...New irrigation system is installed and the results are now beginning to show...Greens were a little slow...

Would play again.
Lot of work taking place on the course. Somewhat distracting. Would play again.

Lots of potential but irrigation work ongoing
This was a challenging and scenic course. I really enjoyed it. I paid a rate that was probably half price off normal but that was because there's a major irrigation project underway. Hole 11 was closed the day we played but there were visible signs of work elsewhere. Greens were in good shape though, albeit a little slow. Only issue was change/locker rooms were only accessible by hotel guests (which I wasn't).

Let me begin by saying that I read reviews from others who had played here within 2 months and had complaints, ie irrigation system being installed etc. I factored these into my decision and still felt that this would be good value, etc and I was correct!
I showed up and was paired with 2 ladies and a guy....after their tee offs on #1, not hard par 4, I thought I'd be in for a 6 hour round. Glad I was wrong, this course was in outstanding conditions..the greens are like putting off the hood of your car but very manageable. This coursae is not that difficult.but it does have some challenging holes....but nothing one can't negotiate. One complaint was the food offered at the turn isn't very good value nor is it good..so pack your own food.
I'm a 12 handicapper and like this very much and will return again within a month.

No valuable course
Most players are resort stayers.Slow and duffer players.
The fee is much higher than other courses.
Stuffs are friendly .

Lots of course updates going on.
There is a new irragation going in so there are a lot of torn up spots. Damp conditions throughout the course which is hard to play your ball.Greens were very soft with unattended ball marks. The course is very challenging for a hacker like me.

Very poor course condition
The course was in terrible shape. They should advise players in advance that they are over seeding and over watering and that carts are limited to cart path only. The whole course was a soggy, slippery mess and not enjoyable to play.

The Inn resort side of Rancho Bernardo is in great need of the repairs that have begun. Beyond the irrigation system lines being installed, there is evidence that the course has been stressed for some time: bare spots in the fairways, ragged green fringes, & bunkers that need lots-o-work. None of these conditions, including cart paths only, were revealed before we showed up for play.

Classic track, hidden gem
I live in Little Italy, yet travel to RBI to play (I think that says a lot). The staff is the best. For the early golfers, they do not force people out when it is still dark- (i.e. there are no 5:52 tee times when sunrise is at 6:17). There are actual trees on the course, which makes it more of a challenge. The greens are generally in good shape. The price is usually right too. The only thing that is keeping me from giving this course an even better rating is the range; it is a shared range with the country club next door, where you generally hit off of dilapidated mats. The hotel restaurant is awesome and reasonably priced. Must say, this is one of the best public courses in San Diego county.
