It feels like Goat Hill Park is the only short public course in the country.

I think I'm making the trek down there when I'm nearby for Thanksgiving. I'll drag the kiddos along, too.

Played there a few months ago during an escape to San Diego. Deceptively difficult but fun course.

On behalf of aging baby boomers who have played a long time, we need more Goat Hill Parks.

Loma Club in Point Loma is another fun short par 3 nine hole course in the SD area

Squeaky Junior and I really enjoyed a round at the Goat earlier this year. Laz gets it just right in the review -- there's nothing precious or showy about Goat Hill. It's short, hilly, little bit scruffy and a little bit quirky ... but it fits like your favorite sweater. Thank you Laz, John Asheorth and Linksoul -- we need more of these courses!

During a CA visit from MI last spring, I drove down from Monarch Beach to play Goat Hill. I had seen and read about it ahead of time. I found the greens to be in good condition and enjoyed the adventure from tee to green. That's not to say the rough or fairways were in poor condition, as much as I appreciated the variety that I encountered. The contours, elevation change, small green size, etc. made for a challenging and fun morning.
