You could spend all your time at the beach, but why would you want to when you learn about the world class courses you can play at during your stay? The five listed below are just a start; we don’t want to overwhelm you with wonder on your first day! Golf in San Diego is the best.
Tecolote Canyon Golf Course, 2755 Snead Avenue
Fast greens are just a small part of what makes Tecolote Canyon such a fun place to play. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. and Sam Snead, this challenging course has obstacles on nearly every hole. Novices may want to steer clear, but if you’re looking to improve your game, here’s where to play!
Torrey Pines Golf Course, 11480 North Torrey Pines Road, La Jolla
You know the landscape is going to be breathtakingly beautiful from the location alone, but this public course is more than just a pretty face! Award-winning, challenging, and designed by William F. Bell (then redesigned by Rees Jones in 2001), this municipal course is a golfer’s paradise.
Colina Park Golf Course, 4085 52nd Street
If you’re new at golf, it may be difficult to find a course that isn’t too challenging, but the Colina Park Golf Course will change all that. Charming, intimate, and interesting, playing this inexpensive public course also offers you the opportunity to do some good; the green fees support Pro Kids/The First Tee of San Diego!
Carmel Mountain Ranch Golf Course, 14050 Carmel Ridge Road
Uniquely challenging for golfers of all skill levels, Carmel Mountain is the type of course that makes you glad you took up the sport! Designed by Ron Fream, the desert landscape was incorporated into the course, offering ruggedly beautiful scenery to enjoy as you curse your botched shots!
Balboa Park Golf Course, 2600 Golf Course Drive
Located in the heart of San Diego, Balboa Park Golf Course is a par 72 that is both challenging and wonderful at the same time! Grab a cup of coffee at the coffee shop before heading out for a day of sunshine, impeccably manicured greens, and hopefully, the occasional hole-in-one!
