Summer 2013 will soon be a thing of the past.  Wanting to get in one more golf outing before the seasons change?  Plan your next trip by staying at Bacara Resort and Spa in Santa Barbara and gain access to some of Southern California’s most challenging courses.

Bacara is within a short distance from three top notch golf clubs: Sandpiper, Glen Annie and Rancho San Marcos.  Each of these spots are uniquely crafted and offer different views of the surrounding area from the coast to the foothills.

Opened in 1972, Sandpiper is located right along the coast.  From the ocean breeze to its intricate design, its championship rating can make for a challenging round.  The people at Golf Digest consistently call this one of America’s top-25 public courses.


Glen Annie sits a little further away from the ocean, but combines those views with rolling green hills.  The par 71 course is located conveniently minutes away from Bacara.  Need help with your swing?  A PGA-certified instructor is there by appointment to help you knock out the kinks.

Since 1998, Rancho San Marcos has built a reputation as one of the premier places to play in the country.  Designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Jr., the club is located on an historic Spanish ranch tucked away in the foothills of the Santa Ynez River Valley.  This is the epitome of a challenging golf experience set on breathtaking property.
