Welcome To The Welk

For avid golfers, The Welk offers two excellent San Diego golf courses, the Oaks Course and the Fountains Course. The two 18 hole golf courses in San Diego, were designed by David Rainville and originally built in 1964. Both the Oaks Course and Fountains Course at the The Welk are scenic masterpieces and are designated by GOLF DIGEST as “Best Places to Play”.

The Oaks Course is a par three golfers delight lined with beautiful oak trees, scenic fairways, and superb greens. Posing a challenge while being completely approachable by golfers of all skill levels. The Oaks Course is ideal for golfers wanting to improve their short game.

Measuring around 4000 yards from the tournament tee markers the Fountains Course is built on 600 acres of beautifully manicured grounds. The course layout is friendly to players of all levels but is also challenging to those with a low handicap.

FootGolf At The Welk

It’s not soccer, it’s not golf, it’s the hybrid sport, footgolf! Come out for a fun game of footgolf with friends and family! Footgolf is a fast-paced combination of two sports – soccer and golf – played with a regulation size #5 soccer ball at a golf facility with 21″ diameter cups. It’s great for skilled soccer players to hone their skills and for new youth soccer players to practice in a fun, relaxed environment. The rules for footgolf mirror those of golf – the player with the fewest shots wins! Click for more information and a course map.

Book a footgolf tee time, just like a golf round, or call the pro shop for assistance.

FlingGolf At The Welk

FlingGolf is a fun sport that includes skills similar to lacrosse, baseball, and hockey. To hit the greens, it requires only one club (a FlingStick™) and a golf ball. Great for all ages, FlingGolf starts with throwing the ball with the stick in lacrosse or baseball-style motion. Once on the green, use the FlingStick as a putter to sink your ball in the hole. The rules mirror those of golf – the player with the fewest shots wins! Click for more information. 

Book a FlingGolf tee time, just like a golf round, or call the pro shop for assistance.
