Located between San Diego and Los Angeles, Emerald Isle Golf gives avid golfers and weekend hackers alike a beautiful setting in which to hone their swings on 16 par 3's and two par 4's. Test iron approaches, tricky wedge shots, and glamorous high-fives around two natural lakes on the 2,452-yard pitching path, which is ten minutes from Oceanside Harbor and one of the West Coast's longest wooden piers. After holing out, hole up in one of the quality accommodations available within blocks, or dedicate oneself to a life full of eagles at Mission San Luis Rey.
Emerald Isle Golf
Two large lakes glisten in the sunlight as they cast reflections of the towering trees. At Emerald Isle Golf's 18-hole executive course, the lakes form a nucleus that is surrounded by 16 par 3s and two par 4s. Players must blast soaring shots over the lakes on four separate occasions, unless they’re able to retrieve golf balls with golf-bag scuba tanks and 9-iron snorkels. Prior to a round, golfers can get a feel for putting speed on the practice green and warm up at the full-grass practice range.
