SAN DIEGO, California, February 22, 2021 

Rancho Bernardo Inn has been awarded the prestigious ‘Distinguished Golf Destination’ distinction by BoardRoom magazine. Only a few highly select resorts are awarded this title for providing an exceptional golf experience. Selected by a team of industry specialists, the award is conducted by BoardRoom magazine in partnership with Forbes Travel Guide.


Owned by JC Resorts, Rancho Bernardo Inn was recognized as a ‘Distinguished Golf Destination’ based on criteria that summarize operating at the highest standards. BoardRoom magazine uses a specific rating system that recognizes the golf course, the facility, and its management and staff based on a proprietary criteria validation process that distills and measures Golf Experience. The propriety formula adds up product quality, intangible quality, facility quality, management quality, and service quality to ultimately equal the golf experience. 


“On behalf of our team, we are honored to have been named ‘Distinguished Golf Destination’ by BoardRoom magazine,” said Jamie Lemon, General Manager, Rancho Bernardo Inn. “The award is a reflection of the hard work and dedication our staff puts forth towards creating an exceptional guest experience.”
