The Grand Golf Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1999

The Grand Golf Club: San Diego’s only Tom Fazio-designed golf course winds its way through the rugged beauty of Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve. Throughout, native chaparral cloaked hillsides and tree-topped ridges create wonderfully natural vistas.

Close enough to the Pacific to capture ocean breezes, this wonderfully challenging course includes dramatic elevation changes, diverse bunkering, lush fairways, cascading water features and scenic valleys played into from elevated tees. Year round play from multiple tee boxes can be enjoyed by resort guests, members and villa owners, who have exclusive use of the golf course at The Grand Del Mar.

Stay & Play at The Grand Del Mar: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.
