No Mulligans posted a topic in Member Outings & MeetupsI played last Saturday, Nov. 28th, 2015, on Camp Pendleton at the Marine Memorial Golf Course. This came about as a result of an after Thanksgiving dinner discussion. My brother-in-law, who was staying in San Clemente said we should play golf somewhere between San Clemente and where I live (in San Diego). I pulled up GolfNow on my phone and discovered there was a course at Pendleton. I booked for a foursome (including two nephews) at $40 per person with cart. While talking to the pro shop regarding how to get on base I was informed just drive to the main gate and present your drivers license and proof of car insurance. He also warned me that the course is about a 20 to 25 minute drive from the main gate. Pendleton is a huge base! The course is a real bargain. I discovered at the pro shop that the civilian rate for walking is $30 on weekdays and $35 on weekends. Even though I paid the $40 to GolfNow that included a cart, I walked as that is what I prefer. This is an easy walking course with only one hill to climb (up the 10th and then further up to the 11th's tee box). I was even able to get my country club cart riding brother-in-law to walk and he said he enjoyed it. I really enjoyed the course and would say it plays about equivalent to Torrey Pines North (without the great ocean views of Torrey though). I had played Torrey a couple days earlier... The greens were in great shape and were running fast (faster than Torrey). The tee boxes, traps and fairways were all in good shape, there was a bit of "California drought brown" on the fairways here and there though. I highly recommend this course. The 14th, from the blues - 211 yard par 4 into the wind, I played from the whites and it scoped at 182, GIR. Followed by a 3 putt .
