Best Golf Courses In Southern California

Best Southern California Golf Courses

From Los Angeles down to San Diego, Southern California has this amazing ability to make moments feel as though they’re short-lived—an ethereal trick on the senses that can’t be duplicated. The sunsets from Point Dume, that magic hour glow of the Santa Rosa Mountains, the perfect imperfections of the Joshua Tree… and of course, those unbelievable four-hour windows on the golf course when this beautiful landscape comes together as a series of unforgettable snapshots.
