Salt Creek is a very fun and moderately challenging golf course. What I like about the course is that it offers many birdie holes but can also bite you at any time if you leave the fairways or get into the bunkers. The rolling terrain gives you some sloping lies and the greens have some nice contouring with tiers. My only complaint is the quality of the bunkers which can either be too muddy or way too fluffy. They need to be much more consistent. The greens are usually good and lean towards being fast. A fun track that I never get bored with.

Played 8/30 tee time 0632. This course is great to bring the ideas worked on the practice range. The course is showing some summertime wear and tear that happens every year with the water restrictions, even if they use non-potable water. The bad thing is the greens are now suffering with several having spots in the middle of the greens that are becoming bare. Other than that, and the continuous battle with the sand being hard packed after watering, the course is still in great condition, though the rough is ROUGH and needs to be mowed more frequently to speed up play as we were looking for balls just of the fairway many times. Purchase the players card (MT Woodson is also part of that) and sign up for the emails, as between the two great deals are to be had at this course.

The course was a great dissapointment! Played with a friend of mine, and was embarassed that I suggested to play here instead of some other course we could play. The greens were horrible, they reminded me of a bad burbur carpet, sand all over them and putting was challenge today. Fairways in lousy shape and bunkers are full of clay, not sand. Course website stated that they had GPS on their carts, Nope! They didn't. Just had 100, 150 and 200 sticks, and no other markers at all, that was the whole GPS. No tees in the carts, no ice in the ice chests (why put ice chests on the carts then?). Overall, it felt like a cheap municipal course in a city that is in deep financial trouble, didn't look like a "Golf Club" as they try to position themselves. I don't think I'll be playing it again.

Great links-style course; well maintained, fast play, and generally enjoyable.
The higher rates are a tad annoying, but it's still one of my favorite SD county courses.

I enjoyed playing this course. It had many different looking holes, doglegs, well bunkered, lots of hazards off the fairway. The greens were very nice to putt on and the fairways were cut short to get some roll on your drives. I was bummed that the black tee boxes were not put out. From the gold tees it plays a bit short (esp the par 5s). Next time I play there I will have to play from the black markers to get some more distance on the course. Also great views of the course and surrounding areas while you play.

Links golf on a mountain-side? There are some very nice holes on this course, however, the sum of the parts is better than the whole. The 9th hole, straight up a mountainside is a good example of "what the heck was the architect thinking?"
Pace is often very slow with out of country guests playing from the wrong tees or treating each shot as if it's the US Open.
The course is usually very well maintained, greens and quick and the fairways are good. Lateral hazards are everywhere (and environmentally sensitive - poorer players will lose many balls.)
There are much better courses for the out of town price.
Practice facilities include a driving range, two short game areas that aren't well maintained and two good putting greens.
Carts are relatively new with GPS.
The scenery can be very nice on clear days. In the summer, San Diego becomes very dry and the hillsides/mountainsides become brown. Little evidence of the 2007 fires is left over (it reached the course).
The clubhouse and snack bar are double-wide trailers.
