The Bridges At Rancho Santa Fe

The Bridges At Rancho Santa Fe
Rancho Santa Fe, CA

This upscale residential course wanders a lovely site in the dry, stony foothills in north San Diego County. The design is a contrast of sculpted architecture with smooth-edged, cape-and-bay style bunkering, reflection ponds and flowing fairway lines set against the property’s rugged ridges and canyons, with long views toward the Pacific off the highest points. The first nine circles through the development’s more compact residences while the second nine flares out into open country under the purview of large luxury estates. The club’s namesake bridges connect several holes that leap over valleys and the Escondido Creek ravine.

Goat Hill Park
Public
Goat Hill Park
Oceanside, CA
Originally built as a nine-hole par-36 track in 1952, Goat Hill was reimagined in the early 1990s as an 18-hole short course and was loved by locals. In the early 2000s, Goat Hill struggled under mismanagement and was revived in 2014 by local residents John Ashworth, David Emerick and Geoff Cunningham. Since then, it’s quickly becoming known as a go-to spot in Southern California for fun, challenging golf, recreation and socializing. It’s a par-65, 4,454-yard layout that features 9 par 4s, eight par 3s and one par 5. Most of these holes roll up and down hills and offer beautiful water views.
