Tips for an Enjoyable Round of Golf in San Diego

San Diego is blessed with fantastic weather all year long. Sunny days and warm weather are what most people picture when they think of America’s Finest City.

A little planning will help make your golf outing in San Diego as enjoyable as possible.

While San Diego has a very temperate climate, temperatures can vary greatly from the coast to the east county. A pleasant day in the mid 70’s on the coast can easily be a day in the high 90’s inland. Knowing the expected temperature where your course is located may influence your decision to ride or walk the course, the type of clothing you’ll wear and the time of day you’ll be playing. If you’re willing to brave the heat in the summer, you can find some great deals on green fees in San Diego’s east county.

Not every golf course has a driving range, especially the executive and par 3 courses. If its important to you that you be able to warm up with a bucket of balls before your round, check with your course before you head out. If they don’t have a driving range you’ll probably be able to find one right on your route to the course so you can get your warm up in.

If you’re in the North County, don’t overlook San Clemente Golf Course. Located in Orange County, San Clemente Golf Course can often be as close a drive as other courses in San Diego. With their peak rate at $41, San Clemente offers a well cared for golf course with diverse holes and a new club house, making it a great golf value.

When you head out, don’t forget to dress in layers and bring lots of sunscreen. Days in San Diego can start off cool, get very warm and then cool off again. A warm top in the morning and evenings will help you stay warm, and sunscreen will help with the mid day sun.

And don’t forget to bring lots of water. While most courses offer refreshments, if budget is a concern, bring plenty of water with you.

A little planning can go a long way. Use these tips to enjoy a great round of golf in San Diego.
