The green was designed in a very natural setting by the renowned Ted Robinson, Sr. and Jr. design team. Enjoy palm, eucalyptus, and oak trees as well as numerous wetlands as you travel through the course.
3. Presidio Hills
Presidio Hills is an 18-hole golf course that has been around since 1932. It is built in an area of San Diego that, at one time, used to be the downtown area. The historic Casa de Carrillo that was built around 1810 has been restored and serves as the course’s pro shop.
Tip: While the course is well-maintained, there are upcoming plans to renovate in order to spruce up the nearly ninety-year-old course. Keep an eye on their website for updates!
