The birthplace of California (1769) and its southern-most metropolitan area. San Diego, the sixth largest city in the U.S., has the best climate in all North America. Voted by Holiday magazine as the only place on the continent with perfect weather.

The second largest city in California has a city population of over 1.3 million with nearly 3 million in the county. There are 70 miles of pristine beaches within the city limits. Balboa Park is the largest urban cultural park in the U.S. featuring 15 museums, numerous art galleries, beautiful gardens, the Tony Award-winning The Globe Theatres and the World-Famous San Diego Zoo.

It is no wonder with the excellent year round weather there would be one hundred golf courses to play.
