It’s no wonder San Diego was hailed by Golf Digest as “one of the top 50 golf destinations in the world.” Whether you’re looking for ocean views, desert sun or mountain vistas, every one of San Diego county’s 86 courses will challenge your skill level and delight your senses.
In 2021, Torrey Pines Golf Course hosted the third USGA championship for the South Course and the second time it played host to the national championship.
Since you have golf on your mind, here are a few local public courses easily accessible from all of our Stubbs Vacation Rentals.
TORREY PINES GOLF COURSE – La Jolla
Located in La Jolla, California, Torrey Pines Golf Course sits on the coastal cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean and is recognized as the premier municipal golf course owned and operated by a city. It offers two picturesque and, due to its yearly hosting of the PGA TOUR’s Farmers Insurance Open event, widely recognizable championship 18-hole golf courses. It is surely the most accessible public facility for the die-hard enthusiast wishing to play at a world-renown facility that nearly all golfers know by name.
LOMAS SANTA FE EXECUTIVE GOLF COURSE – Solana Beach
Lomas Santa Fe Executive Golf Course was voted one of the “Top Short Courses,” by Golf Range Magazine for the past two years. Lomas Santa Fe Executive features panoramic ocean views paired with cool ocean breezes, and is described as “a hidden and under-used jewel” by the San Diego Union Tribune.
ENCINITAS RANCH GOLF COURSE – Encinitas
Encinitas Ranch Golf Course is located on a magnificent sweep of bluffs and has a constant view of the Pacific Ocean throughout the golf course. Golfers appreciate this golf course layout because of its many golf amenities – such as five sets of tees, open fairways, and bunkers. Everyone has a chance to post their low score when they play Encinitas Ranch!
AVIARA GOLF CLUB – Carlsbad
Named by Golf Digest and Golf Magazine as one of the best resort golf courses in America, Aviara Golf Club overlooks the Batiquitos Lagoon nature preserve in beautiful Carlsbad, California. The only coastal California course designed by Arnold Palmer, Aviara Golf Club features a memorable layout: par 72 over 18 holes and 7,007 yards uniquely sculpted around rolling hillsides, native wildflowers, and plenty of bunker and water challenges.
And for the kids:
PELLY’S MINI GOLF – Del Mar
Pelly’s Mini Golf course has cute décor and pleasant general ambiance. The grounds are well maintained and feature trickling waterfalls and ponds with Koi and goldfish. The general tone is more natural “garden” and less sugary “candyland.” There are two courses to choose from: Surfin’ Safari and Ocean Adventure. Educational facts are located at each hole.
FUN FACT! Carlsbad, California is called the “Golf Manufacturing Capital of the World.” Over 35 golf companies call Carlsbad home, including Callaway, TaylorMade, Titleist, Cobra, and Fujikura shafts.
