Spread across the rippling hills of Rancho San Diego, Cottonwood Golf Course sends visitors swinging and putting across a pair of 18-hole courses. The longer of the two courses, the Ivanhoe touts a unique distinction: for several years, the PGA Tour has used it as a qualifier for the Buick Invitational. The aptly-named Lakes course, meanwhile, unfurls nearby and is surrounded by eight sparkling lakes. After rounds at either course, golfers can kick back in the clubhouse with food and drinks, or they can continue to work on their game via the club's workshops and private lessons with PGA pros.
