Where2Golf says: 

Mt Woodson Golf Club: The layout might only weigh-in at 6000-yards with a par of 70, but Mt Woodson is also one of the most dramatic and naturally beautiful golf courses around San Diego. Located amidst the hills and slopes of boulder-clad Mount Woodson, this challenging course is a tribute to the design skills of Lee Schmidt and Brian Curley. Many wind-sculpted boulder formations, ancient oaks and occasional wetland areas are key ingredients in this immensely scenic and natural golfing environment. The fairways, often challengingly tight, make full use of the constantly undulating terrain, which also ensures an abundance of spectacular views along the way. The lengthy boardwalk drive from the par-4 2nd (Razor's Edge) around to the fabulous par-3 3rd (Ledges) is just one of many highlights, and may have you thinking that Jurassic Park is just around the next corner. All manner of trouble lurks beside the greens, with thick grassy mounds, good bunkering and a water hazard or two, all potentially threatening. Played at a slightly higher elevation than the front-nine, the back-nine culminates with breathtaking views from the par-4 17th hole; boulder-strewn and partly wooded hills stretch away into the distance, eventually joining up with some of southern California's highest mountain ranges. Tricky at the best of times, downright brutal if the wind is blowing hard, Mt Woodson is one of many golfing gems to be found within a short drive from San Diego.

Did you know?

Within the estate now owned by Mt Woodson Golf Club you can visit Mount Woodson Castle. Taking over five years to build, Amy Irene Strong completed this structure in 1921. The unique craftsman-style 12,000-square-foot dwelling was originally designed by Strong herself, a prominent San Diego socialite and dress designer. Owned by many throughout the years, it now serves as a frequent site for weddings and special events. Also known as the Amy Strong Castle, the building is also used as an administration office and can be viewed during operating hours. >> Woodson Mountain is also well-known to San Diego's adventure seekers as an important destination for climbers, mountain-bikers and hikers.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
