The percussive clacking of club and ball welcomes club-toting compatriots to City Golf of America's indoor training facility, a golfer’s haven with more than 23,000 square feet of swing-honing amenities. Inside the vast facility, students of golf can gain valuable reps at 1 of the 18 hitting bays of the indoor driving range, plant spiked shoes into the soft grains of a real sand bunker, and inoculate themselves against outbreaks of the yips on two nine-hole putting greens. The immense screens of high-tech golf simulators channel the lush landscapes of 60 of the world’s most renowned courses, whisking golfers to the famed greens of Amen Corner of Augusta National, the windswept heathers of St. Andrews, or near the loudmouth porpoises of Pebble Beach. The facilities are rounded out by a fitness area and members' lounge, where golfers can sink into divot-free leather furniture while noshing on snacks from the café, surfing free WiFi, or watching flat-screen TVs. A staff of teaching professionals and PGA pros leads students through private lessons. The staff makes use of JC video-analysis technology to deftly diagnose swings and proffer both onsite corrective tips and longer-term practice strategies to streamline swing mechanics.
Originally built in the 1920s by A.G. Spalding of Spalding Sports and having hosted professional golfers such as Phil Mickleson, Sam Snead, and Craig Stadler, Sail Ho Golf Club’s charming and historic 9-hole course endows orb-smackers with an expansive view of the San Diego skyline. Seasoned swingers and golf greenhorns alike can send their balls sailing across the 8th hole’s flourishing fairway, or practice ESP-communication with aberrant balls in flight to steer shots away from the 9th hole’s five sand bunkers. Players can sharpen shots even more with the expert instruction of golf lessons ($25 each, not included), taught by an on-staff PGA Professional. A bounty of breakfast items, burgers, and sandwiches await hole-in-one hunger pangs at the Sail Ho’s bar and grill, which also features an array of wine, beer, and specialty cocktails for post-round libations.
Colina Park Golf Course taunts ambitious short games with a beautifully manicured 18-hole par 3 layout. Playing just more than 1,500 yards, the course offers holes ranging from 67 to 125 yards, with accuracy a crucial component of making par and gaining first downs. Multiple bunkers, lakes, waterfalls, varied tee-box elevations, and undulating greens further challenge golfers, making the course an ideal training ground for beginners and duffers who want to perfect their short iron shots. A 10-round pass allows one individual to swing the serene course 10 separate times or to divide the rounds among family and friends to prove their dimpled-ball dominance. Colina Park Golf Course also treats links lovers to a full-service practice facility featuring a 3,000-square-foot practice putting green, a chipping and bunker area, a nine-hole putting course, and a warm-up and driving cage. Exhausted players can also stop by the pro shop to restock on equipment, pick up snacks and beverages, or report runaway pitching wedges.
When golfing legend Gary Player designed Steele Canyon Golf Club, he did so in a manner that both respected and showcased the region's natural beauty and terrain. Gary divvied the 27-hole championship course into a trio of nine-hole courses, each presenting golfers with different challenges and vistas.
Located on the Ranch Course, the signature hole, "Parachute," has players tee off from more than 175 feet above the fairway. The result: a stunning aerial view of winding greens and escaped caddies as they make a break toward new lives as bankers. Not to be outdone, the Canyon Course features some lofty shots of its own. Hole four, for instance, challenges players with a sloping two-tiered green, but earned the nickname "Goosebumps" for its panoramic view of the canyons.
