St. Mark Golf Club
San Marcos, CA
Reviewed by: demarv04, Phoenix
On vacation in the area and chose to play St. Mark this year based on some recent GK reviews. Paid $45 with tee time and range balls. The practice area is large with plenty of space. Range balls are limited flight.
We were paired up with another player from the area and he was a very friendly and big help around our first time on the course.
The course was in good shape overall. Tee boxes were consistent with really no bad spots or severe divot damage. Fairways were good with a few bare spots but nothing to make the course unplayable. The greens were a highlight to me being very soft and receptive to shots. I was only in one trap but the sand was nice and a bit on the wet side. I had to adjust to actual sticky rough around the greens as we don’t get too much of that in AZ.
As previous reviewers have said, the course is not going to kill you with length or forced carries. One par 5 was playing close to 600 yards but for the most part all the holes were playable from appropriate tees. Par 3s were of varying length which I enjoy as were the par 4s. Some driver holes some no driver holes. Fun dogleg holes where being able to shape your tee shot helped but wasn’t necessary. The course is mostly wide open with a couple water holes.
The price and fun factor made this course very enjoyable to play and I would recommend it to the GKers who live in the area.
