The 18-hole Reidy Creek Golf Course covers 2,582 yards in the rugged hills of Escondido, supplying guests with a scenic backdrop for club-based revelry. The rolling terrain of the par 54 course—intertwined with manmade obstacles such as sculpted bunkers, sinuous lakes, and wind—challenges golfers as they attempt holes-in-one. The distinctive course, designed by the notable engineers at Cal Olson Golf Architecture not to contain any two identical holes, contains a golf shop, café, and golf clinics taught by PGA professionals. ______________
Operating out of five courses throughout the greater San Diego area, JC Golf's Intro2Golf program fosters pin-hunting prowess with a shrewd blend of hands-on instruction, individual practice, and on-course experience designed to introduce the basics of golf to beginners. During the pressure-free sessions, JC Golf equips pupils with all the necessary equipment, saving neophytes the hassle of rustling up their own sets of clubs or graphite shaft bananas. Three additional buckets of range balls grant golfers the spherical tools necessary to implant newly learned concepts into muscle memory. The package also allows clubbers to loop the links at their chosen course twice after 4 p.m. for an additional $10 per round, allowing them to test their mettle amid the brambly hazards and sand-trap curmudgeons found on every real course.
San Diego Botanic Garden envelops visitors in 37 acres of lush gardens and diverse terrain, offering nature-centric events and docent-led tours through the urban oasis. Explore the seemingly endless expanse of 28 themed gardens and venture into the world of verdure with the Australian Garden, rich in low-water plants and Vegemite, or the Mediterranean Garden, filled with fragrant water-smart plants such as lavender, rosemary, and Tang. Attend an insightful event, such as the Asian Arts in the Garden experience, or satisfy pressing cocoa queries at the Chocolate Festival. Peruse the premises with a gaggle of garden groupies, take a self-guided tour, or attend the free docent-led garden tour at 10:30 a.m. on Saturdays.
After spending nearly a decade as a surf instructor in Maui, Hawaii, Matt Allen returned to San Diego to open Maui Surf Academy, a safety-first surf school with lessons for all experience levels. In a group lesson, students and curious sand crabs gather around teachers at a three- or four-to-one ratio, assimilating to basic technique with a 20-30 minute segment on the sand that includes a water safety lesson. The group then spends the remainder of the two-hour lesson in the water, practicing paddling techniques before working up the nerve to conquer an actual wave. The CPR- and First Aid–certified instructors also stress the importance of ocean etiquette, such as taking turns in the surf with nearby boarders and allowing ticklish waves to float by unsurfed. Private lessons follow a similar schedule but with one-on-one coaching, useful for younger students, accelerated learning, or specialized instruction of advanced skills. The stretch of beach used at MSA is beginner friendly, stabilized by sandbars and crabs that quiz surfers with waterproof flash cards.
