Need to get the family out of the house? We have five fun, family-friendly, outdoor activities that are safe for all ages and available seven days a week. All located in North San Diego, choose from traditional to new hybrid action-sports!


Putting Course! 

Encinitas – Free to the public, this family-friendly Putting Course is open for all skill levels to experience at Encinitas Ranch Golf Course. Located near the Pro Shop and Driving Range, the fun putting course features six holes, each with its own challenge. Unlike any putt-putt course, this putting green is the only one of its kind in San Diego. Complete with two sets of challenges, the course features an easy set and a harder set. Each set includes six holes so if you play both sets, you get in twelve holes.

RC footgolf Mayor AbedEscondido – Great for every age and skill level, footgolf is a game that includes kicking a soccer ball into giant cups in the ground around a golf course. It seems simple, right? Technique and challenge comes from trying to kick the ball where you want it to go… sometimes easier said than done. Add challenges or just keep score for competitive fun. The player with the lowest amount of kicks wins!

Courses are located at Reidy Creek Golf Course and Welk Resorts San Diego’s Oaks Course. No special attire or equipment is required and you can bring your own ball or borrow one from the pro shop.
