This establishment is a popular golf course in South County. Choose to play through quickly on nine of the 18 holes and finish in about four hours, or, if you have more time, play the entire narrow course, hoping you do not hit a hook or slice. For an added challenge, water will affect your play when approaching three holes. Rates are seasonal.
Chula Vista Golf Course was partially designed by the PGA star, Billy Casper, back in the 1960s. Though the scenery surrounding the course is not the most enchanting, it is still a great place to play. The par-73 course is 6,186 yards long. Many of the holes require you to cope with water hazards, and the last nine holes present some rather strong wind challenges on many days (with winds blowing hardest in the afternoons). A grass-tee driving range, putting green and chipping/sand practice area are also available.
Designed by famed course architect Ted Robinson, this course, located 15 minutes south of downtown, is a 72 par layout laced with more than 1,800 trees, 72 worrisome sand traps and six lakes.
