What makes a California golf package so special?
Regularly listed as one of the world’s greatest courses, the stunning Pebble Beach Golf Links is the crown of golf on the west coast. Opened for play in 1919 and originally designed by Jack Neville and Douglas Grant, the world-famous course has hosted the US Open six times, as well as the PGA Championship once in 1977. Make sure to also take in some of Pebble Beach’s incredible sister courses such as Spyglass Hill and The Links at Spanish Bay to make your trip truly memorable.
Further down the coast, the South and North courses at Torrey Pines continue to be a key part of the PGA TOUR’s roster, hosting the Farmers Insurance Open each year. The South Course is one of Tiger Woods' favorite places to claim a victory, winning 8 PGA TOUR events (including the 2008 US Open) as well as the World Junior Championship. The layout is a true test of golf, particularly for those playing over the winter months when the rough is grown in preparation for the tournament.
For those looking for a more relaxing, resort-based vacation, be sure to check out Palm Springs. With luxurious hotels and unbeatable on-site amenities, the resorts along the Coachella Valley offer the perfect escape. A regular feature on the PGA TOUR's schedule, the TPC Stadium Course at PGA West is a must-play! Take a look at our other luxury golf vacations to make sure you find the perfect package.

Where to play on your California golf package
A little something for everyone
There are very few states that are better suited for a diverse array of great quality golf courses than California. Whether you are teeing off on the Monterey peninsula, on the coast in San Diego or in the desert of Palm Springs, there is so much to enjoy about California golf courses.
Many of the courses are situated in areas cradled by beautiful mountains or oceans, with manicured grounds, colorful flowers, sparkling water features and native trees. Thanks to the glorious sunshine and dry climate, it makes for excellent golfing conditions.
California also boasts spectacular beaches, fantastic National Parks, great bars and excellent shopping and nightlife to be enjoyed when off the course. Yosemite National Park, best known for its breathtaking waterfalls is an absolute must-visit offering 1,200 miles of serene beauty.
However, if you'd prefer to spend your time off the course exploring the shops, then head to the iconic Rodeo Drive and check out some of the most expensive fashions in the world! And of course, a trip to California wouldn't be complete without witnessing the Golden Gate Bridge and the Hollywood Sign in person.
"California is home to some of the best-known venues and destinations in golf. From Pebble Beach on the Monterey Peninsula to Torrey Pines in San Diego and the excellent desert golf in Palm Springs. The climate varies in each region, Monterey is best experienced from Spring through to early fall, whereas the weather in Palm Springs is ideal through the winter months. San Diego’s warm weather all year round makes it a great choice at any time."
