San Diego Country Club is a hidden gem.  Nearing 100 years at it's Chula Vista location, SDCC has managed to preserve time-honored tradition while maintaining relevance for the modern player.  A Championship caliber, 18 hole layout, SDCC is provides pristine playing conditions, year-round.  The course is generous from the tee box, but the rolling fairways and expansive greens  place a premium on strategy and creativity in the short-game. The poa-annua greens are recognized as some of the best on the West Coast and have been awarded by the Southern California Golf Association, "Best Greens in Southern California."

"Based on 365 days a year, San Diego Country Club is the best manicured course on the planet."

-Dennis Paulson (PGA radio announcer and Golf Channel Contributor)
