When I was on vacation in San Diego a few years back I wanted to play Torrey Pines South because that is where the Farmer's Insurance Open is held each year. I endured the six hour wait as a walk on because it was something that you just don't do everyday. I'm glad I did if not for the golf, but for the views alone. I played the South Course and enjoyed it very much. I even survived the 12th hole. I haven't played the North Course but I am including the course statistics in this directory.

Coronado Golf Course

I have a few courses on my absolute favorite golf courses list. Coronado is very high on that list. The fairways and greens always are in the best of shape and the views ain't too shabby neither. The course is a lot of fun to play with some great views of San Diego Bay and The Coronado Bridge. Its also very reasonable as far as the green fees and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly.

Balboa Park is located in San Diego's famous Balboa near the world famous San Diego Zoo and the world class Balboa Park Museum Complex. There are two courses here, one being a sporty 9-hole course and the 18 hole championship course. I have heard that the 9-hole course is a lot of fun to play, but I only played the 18 hole championship course. The course is hilly but well taken care of. Greens are tricky but putt fairly true and the course is quite the challenge. My favorite holes are the par threes with #13 topping the list. The par 5's a lot of fun too.

This is one of those pleasant surprises that you discover by accident. I am very glad to have found this course. The course is set in the hills above Escondido so you have a variety of lies although most of the fairways were flat. Each hole has it's unique character as the course designer used the hilly terrain as a blank canvas. There is water and rocks and bunkers and who knows what. It is a fun layout with the only drawback being that it fairly dry when we played it. Still, this didn't take away from the beauty of the course or how much fun it was to play. One last thing and that is that the course is no a housing development-the houses don't come into play though-located way out in the boonies so you might want to GPS the directions on how to get there.

Chula Vista Golf Course

Chula Vista Golf Course has a reputation in the San Diego area which I won't go into because I want to stay positive in my reviews of the courses. I really didn't want to play Chula Vista but the course has sentimental value for my wife so we played the course on a recent visit to the San Diego Area. I liked the layout, however the course is not in the best of shape. I did talk to the pro and he stated that the City of Chula Vista is finally going to upgrade the course starting with the watering system and in fact the City has allocated monies for improvements. That's good to hear and I hope all the changes are made because I felt it was a good test of golf with some interesting holes.
