About Carmel Mountain Ranch

Surrounded by panoramic mountain and valley views, Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club is a unique golf experience. This desert landscape compliments the exquisitely manicured fairways and greens of this course – making it one of San Diego’s most compelling and distinguished golf courses.

Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club’s desert style golf landscape and course include exact shot placements amidst its rolling terrain, winding layouts, imposing barrancas, pot bunkers, running streams and natural boulder formations. An ambitious $4.4 million turf and landscape renovations in late 2014 and early 2015 now provides our golfers with a natural southwestern backdrop of 6,672 yards.

Meandering through an upscale residential community, our golfers enjoy natural beauty and quiet serenity, since no two holes adjoin each other. Designed by Ron Fream, the course has hosted U.S. Open qualifying rounds, San Diego Open qualifying rounds and many local events. Carmel Mountain Ranch is distinguished as one of San Diego’s best golf courses and experiences.

Our club offers practice facilities, teaching professionals, club rentals, a complete golf shop, restaurant and bar, and banquet facilities. Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club is ideal for your next golf tournament, group meeting or wedding.
