Fairmont Grand Del Mar announces prestigious award given to premier golf course

The Grand Golf Club at Fairmont Grand Del Mar is named one of GOLF Magazine’s Top 25 Luxury Golf Resorts in its list of Top 100 Golf Resorts in North America. GOLF Magazine conducted an online poll where golfers were asked to rate each resort based on five key variables: golf experience, accommodations, service, food, and ambience. The results of the poll, mixed with the opinions of a select group of panelists, ultimately determined the results.
“We are honored to be named one of GOLF Magazine’s Top 25 Luxury Golf Resorts,” said Shawn Cox, Director of Golf at The Grand Golf Club. “We take great pride in our facilities, service and delivering a memorable experience for everyone who plays our course.”

The Grand Golf Club is a stunning par-72 course expressly created to accommodate every skill level. It offers 7,160 yards of championship play spread over 380 pristine acres bordering Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve. Just as legendary course designer Tom Fazio intended, presented is a layout with inviting and challenging holes, which are rivaled only by their natural beauty.

The Grand Golf Club is located at 5200 Grand Del Mar Way, San Diego, California 92130. The practice facilities are open 6:30 am-Dusk.
