Owner description: "Rancho" is an 18-hole, par 56, executive golf course, ideal for family golfing, and offering a short game practice area and driving range.
Reviewed 7 December 2016

This small par three is a good place to learn golf. Clark Renner is a great instructor, and the driving range is large. The 18 holes are fun and will get you up to speed with your iron play. The prices are good.

Super fun way to spend a few hours!

I'm sure professionals would look right past this great gem in Carlsbad. That's okay. It's a fun little course with some challenges here and there.

To be fair, I'm NOT a golfer. I went as a gift to my husband, who does play and plays well when he gets more time on the course. We have never golfed together (in 22 years) so for his 60th, this was one of his gifts.

There were several people hitting balls at the range. It was getting busier as the day progressed. And there were a few foursomes here and there playing the course.

If you are a serious golfer you may look past this in search of bigger game. But would be a super fun way of spending time with some friends who don't play often.

Short little par 3 executive course with surprisingly good greens. Not so with tee boxes (wasn't even sure there was a tee box on one hole) and fairways, but what the heck it's fun. Sand traps are okay. Rates very reasonable. No carts. Walking only.

Very nice driving range with an upper deck on mats and then a lower area where one can hit off the green. 70 balls for $8 but usually can get a local deal coupon to take a couple of bucks off. Pro on site who provides video swing analysis.

Small pro shop with very nice staff. Not stocked with clubs but does have all of the accessories needed if you forget something on the way out the door.

Great place to learn how to play.
