The Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club is nestled in the heart of the historic Rancho Santa Fe "Covenant" area. The Club's championship course, long regarded as one of the premier golf venues in the western United States, sets a tone of rustic beauty and elegance for the "Covenant". Membership in the club is available only to members of the Rancho Santa Fe Association by virtue of ownership of Covenant property. A variety of membership types are available including privileges for a limited number of rounds per year.
The championship course is an eighteen-hole, 7,073-yard, par 72 layout designed by Max Behr and originally opened for play in 1929. The Golf Club is the original home of the Bing Crosby Pro-Am and has hosted a number of prominent professional and amateur events. Long distinguished as one of the finest layouts in California, the course was extensively renovated in 2002, elevating it to one the best golf venues in the western United States. Practice facilities include driving range, two practice putting greens, and a two-acre short game practice area.
The Rancho Santa Fe Covenant is located just a few miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, nestled among hills, eucalyptus trees and citrus groves. The area was originally developed by the Santa Fe Railroad in 1906 to grow eucalyptus trees for railroad ties. The wood proved unsuitable, however, and the project was abandoned. Many of the three million trees remain to give Rancho Santa Fe its rustic beauty. The Ranch, as it is affectionately known by insiders, is an exclusive community of residents who strive to maintain a low profile, despite the fact that this is one of the ten wealthiest communities in the nation.
Homes within the covenant of Rancho Santa Fe start at around $2M, but there are homes in the covenant that are valued at well over $10M.
