Best Golf Courses in California
With over 900 golf courses to choose from, California offers an amazing variety for every level of golfer. California's vast landscape allow golfers to choose from their favorite setting whether that’s mountains, coastlines, forest or desert. The majority of golf courses (600) are situated in Southern California due to the climate and proximity to Los Angeles, the second largest city in the United States. Many of the best golf courses in California are centered near Los Angeles, San Diego and Palm Springs – all home to some of the most iconic golf courses on the west coast. Torrey Pines, Los Angeles Country Club, Riviera Country Club, Sandpiper Golf Course and The Stadium Course at PGA West are just a small sample of some of the best golf courses in Southern California. Moving north towards the Bay Area, you have the crown jewel of California, Pebble Beach Golf Links. Named the #1 golf course in America by Golf Digest, Pebble Beach features stunning views of the coast and will host its 6th U.S. Open in 2019. Cypress Point Golf Club, Pacific Grove Golf Links, The Olympic Golf Club and Half Moon Bay Golf Course are other iconic courses located in Northern California.
