Membership at Del Mar Country Club is a unique opportunity to experience the beautiful 18-hole championship golf course, but do not let the immaculately manicured fairways surrounding the club trick you into thinking Del Mar Country Club is a haven for golfers only. Six tennis courts, Junior Olympic swimming pool, state of the art fitness facilities, kid’s playground area, two restaurants, and a variety of social events throughout the year make Rancho Santa Fe’s finest a retreat for every member.
The Club’s private membership opportunities have attracted some of the most successful names in business, sports, and medicine. Yet, it remains a comfortable and friendly place for families and individuals of all ages to enjoy an exciting club lifestyle. With close proximity to pristine beaches and the famed Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, it is no surprise that Del Mar Country Club is Southern California’s premier private club.
Tucked away in a quiet, secluded valley of Rancho Santa Fe, the Joseph Lee designed golf course at Del Mar Country Club offers an exhilarating experience – one that members and their guests want to play again and again. Embracing the site’s natural beauty and surrounding terrain, the design encompasses breathtaking vistas and an abundance of native flora and fauna.
Winding around bubbling streams, crystal lakes, and cascading waterfalls, Del Mar Country Club’s championship course is as mesmerizing as it is challenging. Integrated naturally into the surrounding terrain, the course unfolds with five different tee settings, ensuring an enjoyable experience for all levels of play. In addition to its engaging layout, the course’s fairways and greens are noted for their impeccable surfaces. This ensures that, no matter when you step up to the tee, the playing conditions will be perfect. The course is also dog friendly, guaranteeing an unforgettable round for you and your best friend.
In order to provide the ultimate private club experience, Del Mar Country Club has adopted a ‘NO TEE TIME’ policy, so that members may show up and get started whenever they are ready – just one of the many reasons Del Mar was named “Best Private Course” by Ranch & Coast magazine.
