Where2Golf says: 

Encinitas Ranch Golf Course: Less than two miles from the Pacific Ocean and perched up on a small range of hills, Encinitas Ranch is an immensely scenic golf course. Many ocean views are present on the front-nine, while the more dramatic back-nine loop also throws in breathtaking inland panoramas over hills and valleys that stretch as far as the eye can see. The downhill opening par-4 signals the start of a worthy front-nine, where good-width fairways are laid out over relatively open and constantly undulating terrain. Good-quality bunkering is twice joined by threatening water hazards; firstly at the excellent dog-legging par-4 4th and then again protecting the rightside of the par-3 8th. Although water doesn't feature at all on the back-nine, these are the more interesting and dramatic holes, culminating in a very undulating and scenic stretch, especially as you head towards the finish. Among the most challenging holes, the par-4 16th, requires a blind drive, before the fairway turns and dips down into the green, which is flanked by a small canyon on its left side. This busy and popular course (especially busy at weekends) may not win top honours for maintenance quality, with the likes of La Costa and Aviara close-by. But it will deliver a rewarding, scenic and challenging round of golf - not least if the wind is blowing through these relatively open and exposed hills.
