To be surrounded by some of the most beautiful sights and still be able to stand out as amongst the more beautiful ones is a difficult feat. But it was all too easily achieved by the Oak Glen Course of the Sycuan Resort. Being in San Diego does not make it any easy for this golf vacation destination to stand out, considering the hundreds of other stunning and more expensive golf resorts in the area. Being surrounded by a majestic panorama of hills does not help either. But this course, remodeled in the late 1980s by Ted Robertson and Dave Fleming is simply too incredible, no golfer would ever miss it even if the world hides it among an ocean of jewels.
The 18-hole par-72 course is part of a grand 54-hole golf resort facility considered among the top favorites for golf vacations in the golf course-laden area. The Oak Glen Course of the Sycuan Resort is divided on two 9-hole loops, each nine bearing an attitude of its own, and collectively brings some of the most beautiful views and most challenging layouts in the San Diego golfing scene. It is a rather flat course and it is only in specific tees could the elevation changes be felt; its fairways are lined by huge oaks, pines and eucalyptus trees. The true challenge of this course comes where the Sweetwater River makes its appearance, along with other ponds. They give a true meaning to the word “hazard” in this course.
With its stunning surroundings and challenging layout, not to mention the impeccable conditioning, the Oak Glen Course of the Sycuan Resort blends too perfectly with its already beautiful location. It is a testament that golf trips so epic could still happen.
