An All-Inclusive Destination Golf Resort in San Diego

Carlton Oaks may just be the perfect place for your next golf outing, getaway or special event in the San Diego area. Golfers will rejoice at Carlton Oaks, San Diego’s only Dye-designed championship course. Carlton Oaks has been a local landmark since 1958 and has made several major enhancements and design changes to its golf course throughout the years. Located just 20 minutes from downtown San Diego, the resort is close to the city`s most popular tourist attractions. However, golf is just one of the offerings of this all-inclusive destination resort, where there is something available for everyone in the family. More than 50 newly-decorated, well-appointed and Asian-inspired rooms with the kind of amenities the discriminating traveler has come to expect, await your arrival. Dining options abound, as the resort is just minutes from several elegant restaurants, while offering its own culinary delights and libations at the Oaks Bar and Grill.

Because Carlton Oaks has a meandering creek as well as mature Cottonwood, Sycamore and Eucalyptus trees and a handful of lakes, it is an ideal venue for weddings and other special events. This verdant river valley setting, surrounded by mountains and hills has limited residential encroachment and is home to many types of wildlife including hawks, herons, egrets, deer and duck. You are sure to enjoy the stunning beauty of the surroundings whether you are a golfer, a diner, a bride or a group of friends gathering for happy hour.
