Few par 3 golf courses boast an 18-hole layout. Even fewer can claim landscape features that include two ponds, a scenic waterfall, and rows of palm trees. Golfers encounter all of the above at Colina Park Golf Course, where 18 holes ranging from 67 to 125 yards require players to demonstrate short-game skills. Colina Park also encompasses a practice facility with a 3,000-square-foot practice putting green and a chipping and bunker area. After a long day of studying the course’s contoured greens, clubbers can head to the full-service pro shop and upgrade their golf gear, grab food and drinks in the clubhouse, or attempt to stealthily immortalize their scorecard on the wall. In addition to the on-course fun, Colina Park Golf Course also houses Pro Kids Golf Academy, which uses the game of golf to foster character development, life skills, and educational opportunities for underserved youth.

The family-owned Sun Valley Golf Course cultivates a welcoming atmosphere that sets nerves at ease so that youngsters and beginners can make a stress-free foray into the lifelong game. The par 27 excursion politely omits any tee shot longer than 145 yards, eliminating the trepidation felt on long tee shots over water or asteroid craters at larger venues. Nevertheless, small greens and quick changes in elevation keep even more experienced players on their toes and help them to hone short-game technique. The course's short layout ensures that players average less than 90 minutes for a nine-hole round, leaving plenty of time in the day to polish lucky golf balls.
Its simple course layout makes Sun Valley Golf Course a natural place for young club cadets to take up the game. Junior golf programs led by instructor Mike Cortes help kids to develop proper form at an early age through camps, clinics, and classes.
Course at a Glance: * 9-hole, par 27 course * Total length of 1,057 yards from the back tees * Two sets of tees per hole

Each day, Radar Precision Golf Solutions sets up shop on Mission Bay Golf and Practice Center’s all-grass tee box, inviting golfers to take swings under the scrutinizing gaze of its TrackMan radar. Using the power of Doppler radar, it measures a player’s golf swing in three dimensions and then displays readings regarding critical swing and ball flight variables, accurate to one foot per 100 yards of distance, up to 400 yards. Golfers see in real time their critical swing and ball flight statistics—including such parameters as club movement, attack angle, golf ball spin rate, and trajectory. With this package, students perform a complete gap fitting which can give players a better understanding of each club in their bag and their accuracy at different yardages. They’ll also receive a compiled report at the end of the session to take home and display proudly on their refrigerator.
Core-Breathing 4 Golf has developed a unique teaching philosophy that aims to seamlessly connect a golfer’s core strength with the physical swing. By combining Bill Westerlund’s 40 years as a PGA instructor and Scott Bartley’s 35 years as a qigong master, the cofounders base their instruction on qigong methods, teaching students a four-step breathing process that maximizes the body’s core energy and clears the mind of emotional barriers. The result is more controlled, consistent performance across the board. Golfers notice an improvement in ball-striking abilities and flagstick javelin throwing by gaining a deeper understanding of the connection between their internal energy and physical swing.
With Mission Bay Golf Course and Practice Center acting as the learning facility, instruction programs range from private lessons on individual aspects of the game to full-game lessons that range from a half day to up to three days.
