Featured in the North County Times for its spree of upgrades in recent years, the 6,450-yard, par-72 Oceanside Golf Course sits nestled among natural streams and marshes on the outskirts of Camp Pendleton. Swingers can send their pocked spheres swimming through the air over rolling hills, down tree-lined straight shots, and straight through the Sandman living in the hazards. Surrounded by distant rising hills and the sights of the San Luis Rey Valley, putters can cruise along the course in the rental cart immersed in the tranquility of the verdant setting. Buyers of today's Groupon can prepare for future club-toting endeavors by swinging by the Pro Shop for 20% off golfing merchandise, or by turning their neighbor's lawn into a putting green.

Amidst all the horse riding, swimming, bowling, and other recreational activities, the golf course at Camp Pendleton has become something of a hidden gem. Though it's difficult to consider anything that measures nearly 7,000 yards as "hidden," the Marine Memorial Golf Course in Oceanside might just fit the bill.
The golf course is tucked in amongst the rippling foothills and towering trees of Windmill Canyon, and features practice and lessons on a natural-grass driving range, chipping areas, and putting greens.
