Discover a place like no other
Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club is one of the storied private golf courses in California. Designed by Max Behr, and opened for play in 1929, the classic layout has played host to the golfing greats from every era. The club served as the original host course for the first six Bing Crosby Pro-Am tournaments, known as “The Clambake”, and more recently, the 2006 USGA Junior Amateur Championship and 2011 California State Amateur Championship. Today the course retains that undeniable “feel” of history, its fairways framed by towering 90-year old eucalyptus trees. Behr’s philosophy of designing a course that blends in with the natural contours of the land, with holes that wind up and down, crossing and re-crossing a long barranca, have made for a great test of golf. Players of every skill level will find the course playable, challenging and memorable.
A membership beyond your expectations.
Located north of San Diego, in the heart of the village of Rancho Santa Fe, Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club offers one of the premier private golf memberships in Southern California. The spectacularly endowed “natural” golf course was carved from the rolling terrain of a eucalyptus forest and is surrounded by horseback riding trails and beautiful estates.
The championship course is an eighteen-hole 7,073 yard, par 72 layout, distinguished as one of the finest “walkable” designs in the world. The course was extensively renovated in 2002, elevating it to one of the top 20 best golf venues in California according to Golf Digest Magazine. The practice facilities include a double-ended driving range; two practice putting greens; and a two-acre short game practice area. It is the original site of the Crosby “Clambake”, predecessor to the AT&T Pebble Beach Tournament and host to a number of prominent championship events, notably the 2006 USGA National Junior Amateur Championship.
Membership in the Club is available only to members of the Rancho Santa Fe Association by virtue of ownership of Covenant property.
