Coronado's Golf Course Gem

One of San Diego’s Best Kept Secrets

Where pristine greens, views of Glorietta Bay, the Coronado Bay Bridge and Downtown San Diego capture the focus of even the most seasoned player.

Value and Quality!

Even in a town prized for “golf with a view,” the Coronado Municipal Golf Course is regarded as one of the most special courses a golfer can play in San Diego.

Green Fees Value

The value comes from greens fees of $30 for weekdays and $35 on weekends for both locals and out of town visitors. Greens fees are so reasonable because Coronado is limited contractually in what it can charge golfers. The city leases the land for free from the Port District, which stipulated that only enough revenue be generated to break even. Carts are extra for those who choose not to enjoy the walk. Tee times are available by calling the starter 619-435-3122 after 9:00 a.m. two days before the round or in person from 6:00 - 8:59 a.m. by lottery at the course in front of the starter booth. Advance tee times (for an additional fee) are available three to 14 days in advance for those eager to reserve a spot. While the competition for tee times is intense, there is still opportunity to walk up and get on, especially as a single or twosome. A call beforehand to the starter is recommended to gauge chances of getting out. It is definitely worth the effort.

The Setting

The setting for this golf course in Coronado is so special, even Torrey Pines has trouble measuring up in terms of visual appeal. The front nine at Coronado features views of the Downtown San Diego skyline, boats in San Diego Bay and, of course, the Coronado Bridge. The sights on the back nine include the Hotel Del Coronado as well as boats sailing in and out of Glorietta Bay.

The par 72, 6,590-yard course was built in 1957 and residents embraced the project from the beginning, contributing 250 palm trees from their own yards. The trees now are among the distinguishing features of the course, along with well-manicured greens and fairways.

Golfers also should take a moment early in their round to realize some of the ground they’re walking on wasn’t there a century ago. Not above water, anyway. Dredging to deepen the harbor for Navy ships added more than 100 acres to the coastline. The second and third holes are on dirt that was supplied when the Coronado Bridge was built in the late 1960s.

Water is a hazard on the first, eighth and ninth holes at this golf course. Everywhere else it is something to behold.
