About Carmel Mountain Ranch

Panoramic mountain and valley views provide a magnificent backdrop for Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club’s unique golf experience. First of its kind in San Diego County, this course has brought to life a vivid desert-scape which complements the course’s exquisitely manicured fairways and greens.

Distinguished as one of San Diego’s most compelling golf experiences, requiring exacting shot placement amidst its rolling terrain, winding layout, imposing barrancas, pot bunkers, running streams and natural boulder formations, Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club is even more exciting now with its Desert Style Golf landscape. An ambitious $4.4 Million turf and landscape renovation in late 2014-early 2015 now provides the golfer with a natural southwestern backdrop for this 6,672 yard, 72.9 rated course. Carmel Mountain Ranch is a true shotmaker’s course with elevation changes, strategic choices and fast undulating greens.

Meandering through an upscale residential community, the golfer enjoys 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.

The 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.
