Had to create an account just so I could give this course its first 5-star rating (last review was in 2010?!?!). I have to agree with all the other commenters about the crowds; but the reasons the crowds keep coming is because this course is fantastic! By far the best course in the southwest that I've hit up so far; just try to swing in on a weekday if possible.
What they said. Played here nearly every day for 3 years, and that was 10 years ago. I'm sure the crowds are much worse now. Still one of the most beautiful courses I know, and with so many pin placements you'll never get bored. The snack bar/pro shop/lost and found is brilliant. Just about the most perfect overall course in America, hampered only by the crowds(and severe lack of parking!).
Again, the crowds can be a bit distracting, but the fact that so many people are willing to pay to play here is a testament to how wonderful this course is. While a few of the holes criss-cross to save space, personally I found this a bit entertaining.
Certainly be ready to duck, and ready to call "fore".
Morley Field is one of the oldest courses in the U.S., and is probably the most-played course as well. All of the holes have multiple pin placements, some as many as 5 or 6, and the pins are changed each Monday, so each week you play a different layout. Good selection of shots required - some wide open holes, some technical, a few uphill, a few downhill. One knock on Morley might be that it lacks truly long holes - I think only three holes have pin positions >400ft. Great pro shop with lots of discs and snacks and sometimes a Hall of Famer (Snapper Pierson).
What keep my rating from being a 5 is how crowded it is. Weekend rounds after 10am take hours, with sometimes waits of 15 minutes on a tee. If you're visiting, try to play on a weekday, preferably in the morning, before the beer-totin' casual players show up.
This would be a 5/5 if it weren't for the crowds and criss crossing fairways. Morley Field is a challenging course for every part of your game. There are long open holes, short technical holes, OB everywhere, and of course we must all remember the shoe tree. I lived in SD for five years and the numurous pin placements make this course excellent. #17, nicknamed Mirkwood by Snapper Pierson, will definatly test your ability to thread the smallest of needles off the tee.
19 holes. my hometown course so I love it; starts out with a couple short easy ones, gets longer, then the trees. downside: it's crowded ALL the time; and quite a few holes criss-cross each other.
