Nancy White presents Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club

Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club

I play golf here myself and absolutely love it! This parkland course has the perfect equation of challenging holes, beautiful scenery, and friendly staff members to make sure your game is enjoyable. The pros at this club are all excellent. Junior Golf is also a very active part of the club. Both men and women's clubs are very active, and you will always find an opportunity to join in on a golf activity. My personal favorite club activity is the Golf Fore Fun which is held on Friday afternoons during the summer. Anyone will love this night which includes a few holes of golf or a mini-tournie followed by wine, heavy hors d'oeuvres and countless amounts of laughs. Shopping in the Pro Shop is always good, too!

On Nov. 2nd, 2017, my Club, the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club put on a fabulous fun-filled tournament, Fairways & Furlongs, for the Breeders Cup Members who were in town for the Breeders Cup horse races.

I told this fellow he hit a line drive down the center of the fairway. And he told me he was a retired Cubbies pitcher - Rick Sutcliffe.
One of the winning 4-somes - "Best tournament I've ever played in"

The 3 top winning 4-somes got a surprise - a ride - right then and there from the 10th fairway - in a hot air balloon! That was a Big Hit!

Everyone - and I mean everyone - had a great time! Fabulous brunch, great food stations along the course, lots of comraderie and lots of wine!
