JC Golf, a San Diego-based golf course management and operating company, announces the 55th anniversary of the Rancho Bernardo Inn golf course.


1962 was a grand year for golf fans. Future Hall-of-Famer Jack Nicklaus won his first professional event at the 62nd U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club. The most popular player in the world, Arnold Palmer, captured a third Masters Tournament as well as his second consecutive Open Championship. For more excitement, international golf sensation Gary Player seized a PGA Championship to complete one of the greatest years in golf history. The Rancho Bernardo Inn golf course opened for play that same year in November.


JC Resorts acquired the resort property in 1975 and since that time has made substantial improvements and additions to the course over the years. Totaling over $4.5 million since 1999, JC Resorts has invested in the golfer experience with new green complexes, tee boxes, a state-of-the-art irrigation system and reconstruction of all the course bunkers to name a few. The recent addition of new Club Car golf carts with GPS technology reinforces the commitment JC Golf puts forth to ensure the golf course remains at the top of the San Diego golf market.


“I have had the privilege to play on this course for over thirty years. The property has grown and changed over the years and is, arguably, in the best condition I have ever seen it. Playing here is an entire experience,” said Steven Campbell, Rancho Bernardo Inn Resort Club member. “We are fortunate enough to have San Diego’s finest men’s golf club at the RBI Resort course. A group of 85 golfers of varying skills plays a shotgun start tournament every Monday. Following our golf we all meet in the Veranda Bar, enjoy a beer or two and swap golf stories! And there have been some great stories over the years. I have seen the local community come together through the men’s and women’s golf clubs at the Rancho Bernardo Inn.”


Designed by William Francis Bell, architect of the famed Torrey Pines Golf Course and the La Jolla Country Club, the Rancho Bernardo Inn course is one of only two in San Diego to have hosted both a PGA Tour and LPGA Tour event. The course has been listed by Golf Magazine as one of the “Top 10 Resort Golf Courses in California.”


“We are very proud of how this golf course and hotel have been the centerpiece of the Rancho Bernardo community for so many years,” said John McNair, Vice President of Golf Operations for JC Golf. “Our goal is to continue to improve all areas of the golf experience for our players and their guests for many more years to come.”


To celebrate 55 years of history in San Diego, guests will receive the special rate of $55 from Sunday, November 5 through Thursday, November 9th. Guests can make a tee time on the JC Golf website or by calling the pro shop.
