Golfing at Steele Canyon Golf Club 11 a.m.–6 p.m.

As a recipient of Golf Digest's prestigious "4-½ Star Award" and one of San Diego's finest golf clubs, Steele Canyon Golf Club has been nationally recognized as one of Southern California's best publicly accessible golf courses. The 27-hole championship golf course was designed by Gary Player, one of history’s greatest golfers.  He designed Steele Canyon  with respect and appreciation of the terrain that provides a unique golf experience amidst nature’s beauty.

From the dramatic elevation changes of the Canyon nine to the subtle nuances of the Vineyard nine and the total seclusion of the Ranch nine, any combination will make for a wonderful day of golf. We invite you to come experience the golfing secret of San Diego County by playing a round at Steele Canyon Golf Club.

$189 per person includes motor coach to and from the course, greens fees, range balls, valet bag services, golf cart per foursome, and tax. Club rental is an additional $65.00, tax included. (Sorry, Steele Canyon does not rent golf shoes.)

Guests will be treated to a San Diego tradition ... the original Point Loma Lighthouse.
