Golf at The Farms Golf Club

Our championship course plays differently each time you enjoy a round.

The golf course....It’s about the challenge

Hills and hollows characterize the fairways, doglegs are strategically placed, and back-country chaparral serves as rough on perimeter holes. Groves of native trees and water hazards come into play on a number of holes, which require both accuracy and planning. The greens are fast and extremely well-manicured. The fairways are tight. Dramatic elevation changes throughout call for brilliant strategy and athletic prowess. Players enjoy a sense of unspoiled beauty while playing this fair, but challenging course.

The landscape of native ornamental plants creates the look and feel of a botanical garden. The Farms golf course is one of the few courses in the San Diego area which is enjoyable to walk for those who are purists to the game.

“The Farms is one of the most challenging courses off the tee in Southern California. When I’m preparing for a major tournament (like the U.S. Open) and really want to test my driver, I come to The Farms.” – Phil Mickelson, Farms Member

Our championship golf course can accommodate golfers of all skill levels.  It was designed by the Dye's and completed in 1989.

Hole #1

Par: 4 | Men's Handicap: 11 | Ladies' Handicap: 11

390 385 366 350 337 300

Hole Description:

The first hole is short par 4, slight dogleg left, downhill that is an easy start.

Caddy Tips:

Tee shot should favor the left center of the fairway to avoid the bunkers on the right. Depending on the hole position, it is an easy second shot with a short iron. The green slopes severely from right to left, so favor the right side, except when the pin is in the front right portion of the green. In that case, you must be slightly left or long.

Place is top shelf in every facet. I have played many of the best courses in the United States and The Farms is up there with any of them...Overall, The Farms is my favorite course in San Diego and I've played them all.”
