Down here in San Diego at Surf College Cup and can confirm the fields are trashed. They just play too many tournaments / games here...the grass can't stand up to all the games...still love coming down here, can't pick a better spot.It used to be a treat to play there, now my daughter doesn't like it.
Same can be said for San Diego Surf fields.
It would be one thing if the fields were dead flat and missing grass, but there are undulations and some fields are a patchwork of grass types so the ball rolls a little funny,
The upside... they finally got some asphalt in there.
