Sun-lissed surfers mingle with movie stars up and down the idyllic Pacific shores, all blessed by California's legendary climate which, coincidentally, is also ideal for some fun on the fairways. The extremely reliable sunshine of southern California makes it a popular winter getaway, and what's more, the coastline extending north and south from Los Angeles is the ideal place to combine sightseeing and golf with the beach life and endless fun in the sun.
Where the mountains come so close to the shoreline, an amazing landscape is created that can be shaped artfully by the most imaginative golf course designers.
San Diego and the surrounding area boast a large number of high quality golf courses which offer great variety in design including layouts that will satisfy the taste of any golfer. Desert golf courses are typical of East County, whereas tree-lined and seaside courses perched on the cliff’s edge can also be found throughout San Diego. A highlight of a golf tour of San Diego is undoubtedly the magnificent Torrey Pines which has previously hosted the US Open.
