Course Overview

As one of Southern California’s finest golf clubs, Steele Canyon has been awarded Golf Digest’s Four Star Rating, one of only three golf clubs so honored in San Diego County. The 27-hole championship course was personally designed by Gary Player with respect and appreciation for the natural beauty of the terrain. Each of the three nines offers a distinct environment and type of play for all levels of golfers with the rugged Canyon Course’s dramatic shot making challenges and breathtaking elevations, the Ranch Course winding through the fields of a working ranch and the Meadow course stretching along the valley floor with beautiful woodlands and streams.

Steele Canyon offers the possibility of three different very distict 18-hole layouts. All three are a scenic golf challenge. Canyon offers dramatic changes in elevation that will play with your mind when it comes to club selection. It’s the shortest, yet perhaps the most difficult of the three nines for the average golfer, more so when the desert breeze kicks in. One of the signature holes is on the Canyon nine is the par-3 eighth appropriately named ‘Splash’ with long and challenging hole that requires an accurate shot to the green. Missing the green demands a very sharp short game to save par.

The hills are populated with boulders and rocky outcrops, surrounded by semi-desert bushy vegetation. Meadows flows through a green valley with picturesque streams, wildlife and woodlands. Its holes have names like “Roll Away” and “Wee Burn.” Two of them have forced carries off the tee. Ranch, the longest of the three nines at 3,535 yards from the “blues,” meanders through the fields and corrals of a centenarian working ranch. Its third hole, appropriately named “Parachute” presents the player with a tremendously elevated tee shot overlooking a wide fairway. There is a feeling of “letting it go” and swing hard just to see the golf ball soar away. In spite the huge elevation change, the carry over the bushes and rocks on the hillside is only 170 yards from the regular “white” tees. Visually deceiving, but with a breathtaking view. Speaking of soaring, one could literally jump off the tee box on a hang-glider or a parachute to reach the fairway several hundred feet below. Luckily golf carts do not have wings so the temptation to fly off the deck is not there. The player has to carefully drive down the steep, meandering cart path back to the course. Bumps strategically placed along the narrow paved way help remind drivers to keep the speed at safe levels. Getting to the fairway is a bit of an adventure on its own.

Besides hosting the international juniors, Steele Canyon Country Club has been the venue for the qualifier to the PGA TOUR’s annual Buick Invitational at Torrey Pines Golf Course, a Gateway Tour tournament, and various important local and state golf tournaments and corporate golf events in San Diego. However, being host of high level competition shouldn’t discourage the average golfer. This San Diego golf course has four sets of tees to fit various levels of golfing ability. The design is such that common sense is rewarded. Some holes are not very long but are tight off the tee, with narrow and well protected fairways. Other holes are long but wide open, inviting a temporary relaxation and enjoyment of the panoramic San Diego canyon and valley views. Only five of the 27 holes include “watery graves” or true water hazards. For the first time visitor, the variety from hole to hole will keep him on his tip toes, anxiously guessing and enjoying what’s coming next.

In addition to three exceptional nine-hole courses, Steele Canyon Golf Course offers a fully stocked Pro Shop and is staffed with several teaching professionals that will help you set up a customized golf lessons program. There are also complete practice areas with grass tees for practicing your long and short game skills. The facilities include the Canyon Club restaurant and an outside pavilion that can accommodate up to 250 people for corporate events, banquets and weddings. Steele Canyon Golf Course has some of the most dramatic elevation changes you’ll ever experience. It is truly a “must play” San Diego golf course you’ll have to play to believe how good golf can get!

Steele Canyon Golf Club is in a privatization process right now, so golfers are advised to make their tee times now while Steele Canyon is a public golf course.
