As one of several Welk Resorts in North America, the San Diego Welk Resort is part of a first-class family of resort destinations that offer luxurious amenities, including a splendid and scenic golf course. The San Diego Welk Resort contains two 18-hole golf courses as part of a 450-acre retreat in North San Diego County in the city of Escondido.
Touted as one of the premier golf courses in the San Diego area by local publications, the 18-hole Fountains Course is the featured course at Welk Resort, offering a challenge to skilled golfers but remaining accessible to players of all talent levels.
The Oaks Course is the second course at Welk Resort, consisting of 18 par three holes that offer a lighter challenge than the Fountains course. Lined with the century-old oaks of its name, the course is a visual delight, with open fairways and friendly greens for beginners, families and casual players.
As an additional claim to fame, Welk Resort has been an official host of the Callaway Junior World Golf Championship for thirteen consecutive years. The championship spans several golf courses in San Diego County every July and Welk is proud to host rounds of golf for this junior golf event. Over 1200 participants from 56 countries and 42 states compete in the Championship, the largest international junior golf event in the world. Past winners of the event include Craig Stadler, Nick Price, Corey Pavin, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, David Toms, Lorena Ochoa, Anthony Kim, Jason Day and Tiger Woods.
