“One of my Favourite Courses, Nice Ocean Views!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is a JC Resorts Course of which there are 5 in the San Diego Area, 1 of which is in Temecula. All of there courses are Great, and usually in Great Condition. Typical Green Fees are around $85. unless your a JC member, where they drop to around $60. Encinitas Ranch is an Ocean View course with a view on about 40% of the holes/fairways. This was built on the World Famous Eckes Poinsettia Ranch. This course can be very challenging depending on the ocean winds, and your ability to navigate the hilly terrain. I would rate this course in the top ten of the many options in San Diego. It does not have a Restaurant, which is why it does not get an excellent rating. It has a snack bar, which is good for a sandwhich, etc. Enjoy...

“Great Local Pebble Beach”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Terrific ocean views, challenging but different nines and a great staff. This is a fun course, with some very difficult looks. If you are a long hitter you can get in trouble for doing good! If you are a short hitter, get ready because the course plays longer than it looks. Yardage is not always accurate but it is FUN

“Wide Fairways; Ocean Breezes; and Minutes From Home”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Golf course reviews can be very interesting. You may get a better review based upon the golfer’s personal score on that day. But if you read multiple reviews, you should get an indication of a true evaluation. I have played Encinitas Ranch golf course dozens of times. It certainly has always been one of my favorite courses. I’m a golfer who doesn’t mind traveling some distance to experience a new course. But when you have one in your own backyard which you consider great, why go elsewhere. I consider Encinitas Ranch golf course in that category.
I first became familiar with Encinitas Ranch golf course shortly after it opened. The uniqueness of this course includes the fact that the fairways are wide, well diversified, and on the coast. The location provides us with cool breezes during the summer, and moderate temperatures the rest of the year. The staff at the clubhouse is very professional, warm and friendly, and willing to assist the customer with his golfing needs.
The driving range has plenty of practice tees and there is a chipping and putting green. I would certainly recommend any visitors to the area check out Encinitas Ranch golf course. Since it is popular, I would recommend making reservations well in advance.

“Ocean view and forgiving course”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Found this course to be very forgiving with plenty room left or right on many holes which for a 18 handicap like me made my day and round better than I had expected. The course was in great shape and had beautiful views on most of the holes. Can't wait to tackle this course next year when I come back for vacation.
