Encinitas Ranch Golf Course is one of the few golf courses in Southern California that is located on a magnificent sweep of bluffs and has a constant view of the Pacific Ocean throughout the golf course. There are only a few other courses in San Diego that offer a setting remotely close to the picturesque scenery at the Encinitas Golf Course.

Encinitas Ranch Golf Course is credited for never having a frost delay due to its beautiful coastal setting. Golfers appreciate this golf course layout designed by Cary Bickler, ASGCA because of its many golf amenities – such as five sets of tees, open fairways, and bunkers. Everyone has a chance to post their low score when they play Encinitas Ranch!

The front nine are known for being exceptionally forgiving to overly optimistic shot attempts, but our Encinitas golf course never punishes its players. After players make a turn, the fun begins as elevation changes throughout the course and presents exciting new challenges.

Complementing Encinitas Ranch is the clubhouse and the Ranch Grill restaurant. Its 6,000 square feet are home to a full bar and café that serves a delicious menu. The clubhouse expands into an adjoining outdoor patio with ocean views and a charming stone fireplace to create an ideal venue for golf course weddings, banquets, and other special events.

Course Layout

Encinitas Ranch offers 18 championship holes in a unique setting carved from a magnificent sweep of bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Golfers are greeted by the wide, forgiving fairways of the front nine, but will find the back nine requiring precise tee shots for lower scores. Dramatic elevation changes add excitement to an already challenging course, while four sets of tees accommodate golfers of all levels.

The Putting Course

The FREE unique Putting Course is the only one of its kind in San Diego County. 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. It features a windmill and benches around the greens where you can watch your friends putt and take in views of the Pacific Ocean.

For those who do not have equipment, complimentary use of adult putters, junior putters and golf balls are available in the pro shop. The Putting Course is free to residents and golf guests.
