Encinitas Ranch Golf Course
Encinitas Ranch is one of the few golf courses in Southern California that is located on a magnificent sweep of bluffs that has a constant view of the ocean throughout the golf course. There are only a few other courses in San Diego that offer a setting remotely close to the picturesque scenery of the Encinitas Golf Course.
Golfers appreciate this Southern California golf course layout because of its many golf amenities – such as five sets of tees, open fairways, and bunkers. Everyone has a chance to post their low score when they play Encinitas Ranch!
