Willow Glen is a par 72 course with demanding, narrow fairways and strategicallyplaced bunkers.

The layout contains several dogleg holes, elevation changes and water crossings that create an incomparable day of golf for enthusiasts. Ted Robinson redesigned Willow Glen in 1980.
Oak Glen, another par 72 course, boasts tight fairways, tricky undulating greens,and difficult hazards all set among mature, landscaped surroundings. Sweetwater River runs through the course challenging golfers to cross the river with an accurate drive on the beautiful, yet treacherous 5th hole — one ofthe best golf holes in San Diego. Oak Glen was redesigned by Ted Robinson in 1980 and by Dave Fleming in 1991.
Pine Glen’s 18 par 3 holes are anything but basic thanks to the course’s terrain of mountains, natural rock outcroppings, and aged oaks and sycamores. Golfers of all ages and abilities will find the course to be enjoyable, yet tough enough, with natural obstacles and strategically placed bunkers along wonderfully manicured, hilly greens.
