Encinitas Ranch Southern California Golf Course

Golfers find two rare delights when they play Encinitas Ranch Golf Course: low scores and ocean views.

Put them together and you have a recipe for one of the most popular and memorable golf experiences in San Diego County.

Encinitas Ranch is one of the few golf courses that is located on a magnificent sweep of bluffs that keep the ocean in sight from all over the golf course. There are only a few other courses in San Diego that offer a setting remotely close to the picturesque scene experienced at Encinitas Ranch.

The coastal setting, which gets credit for this Encinitas golf course never having a frost delay, is only a short part of the story at Encinitas Ranch. The Southern California golf course layout is appreciated by golfers of all abilities.With five sets of tees, open fairways, and few bunkers, everyone has a chance to post their low score when they play Encinitas Ranch.

The front nine in particular is known for being exceptionally forgiving to overly optimistic shot attempts, but this Encinitas golf course never punishes you. After you make the turn, the fun really begins as elevation changes present exciting new challenges.

Complementing Encinitas Ranch Golf Course is the clubhouse. Its 6,000 square feet are home to a full bar and café that serves a delicious menu. The clubhouse expands into an adjoining patio with ocean views and a charming stone fireplace to create an ideal venue for golf course weddings, banquets, and other special events.
