San Diego Golf Guide 2014

Welcome to Golfer’s Paradise

The beauty, magic and wonder of golf in San Diego is one reason so many people visit our beautiful city—and all this natural beauty and great golf certainly doesn’t go unappreciated by the locals, either. When it comes to golf, the human spirit craves diversity and challenge, and that’s exactly what San Diego offers to golfers of all skill levels. With more than 300 days of sunshine each year and 93 private and public golf courses, San Diego has become a primary golf destination for good reason.

Golf is more than an activity or sport: It’s an experience. And what makes San Diego special is that we have a course to match every golfer’s mood. Do you feel like playing a course that requires target golf? No problem. Are you looking for wide-open fairways? Got ’em. Are you in the mood for a stunning ocean view between shots? It’s right here. Do you enjoy elevated tee boxes and mountain vistas? Done deal. Interested in playing a golf course where Sam Snead holds the course record? Give Balboa Park Golf Course a call to book a tee time. Pair all of this variety with ideal weather, and you’ve got a golfer’s utopia.

Yes, we are spoiled here in this beautiful golf mecca. But at the same time, we are more than willing to share this wonderful place with anyone who would like to visit. San Diego golfers are a very welcoming bunch. Come join us, and see what we’re talking about.

Wishing you straight drives and short putts,

Tina Mickelson
