So sad to see this club and golf course go to ruin. It was bought and a developer wants to build a couple hundred houses on the course. Next nearest courses are Welk Village, and Twin Oaks.

This 111-acre property, which for 50 years was home to the Escondido Country Club and golf course, was closed on April 1, 2013. The current owner (doing business as Stuck in the Rough, LLC) is in litigation with the City of Escondido regarding property rights.

Now open to the public, the golf course is OK (according to my husband). Restaurant needs to try harder to produce a higher quality. Good local places for large gatherings.
