Walk-on Waiting List

Depending on the time of year, we reserve the first half-hour to an hour of sunlight for walk-ups. All tee times prior to reservations are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Players must arrive early to ensure the best possible opportunity to play prior to reservations starting.

Tournaments and course closures will affect the availability of these times.

Prior to the starters' arrival, the early line-up is determined by the following procedure:

  • For play on Monday-Friday, the early line-up is determined by putting a bag against the rail next to the starters' window and the same player who placed the bag must stay on premises until they check in with starter.
  • For play on Saturday-Sunday and City of San Diego observed holidays, the early line-up is established by parking your car in the golf course parking lot, with the last car to arrive having their parking lights illuminated.
  • For all early line-ups, one player per tee time must establish a place in line, and once a player gets in line, the same player must remain on the premises to hold that spot in line.
  • Play will commence at 6:15 a.m. Monday through Friday and at daybreak on Saturday/Sunday and all City observed holidays.
  • At least 30 minutes prior to commencement of play, all early line-up players should line up in front of starters' window in the order that was established by the previously early line- up policy.
  • No players are ever allowed to start play on the course without the direction of the starter.
