San Diego Country is the oldest country club in San Diego. The private course, designed by William P. Bell, was built in 1921, before bulldozers were used. The result is a rolling terrain that makes every shot different from the one before.

There is plenty of challenge to Bell's layout, with mature eucalyptus and other trees framing many fairways and green surrounds. Both the fairway traps and greenside bunkering are excellent. But the real standout feature of SDCC is the putting surfaces which can run in the low teens on the stimp meter, meaning approach shots on the wrong side of the hole leave some unbelievably difficult putts.

San Diego Country Club hosted the 1952 and 1953 San Diego Open; the 1964 USGA Women's Open Championship, which was won by San Diego Country Club honorary member Mickey Wright; and the 1993 US Women's Amateur Championship.

“The San Diego Country Club is a very special place. I learned to play all types of shots on those fairways. and enjoyed playing each of the holes at San Diego Country Club.” -Billy Casper
