Best Golf Courses in California? Top 10 "Must-Play" this year

It's tough to definitively say which part of the USA is the best for golf, but it's certainly fair to include California in that conversation. The Golden State covers a vast area of the USA's west coast and some of the world's best golf courses take pride of place on some truly awe inspiring patches of land.

Immediately the likes of Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill and Torrey Pines spring to mind, two of which have hosted The US Open and countless other prestigious professional events including the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and (at the time of writing ) the Farmers Insurance Open which Tiger Woods has won an incredible 7 times! But even away from these well known heavy hitters, California offers so much more to the visiting golfer.

Palm Springs boasts the amazing La Quinta and Indian Wells Resorts, while down on the Los Angeles Coast you'll find the impossibly luxurious Pelican Hill Resort. Combine all this top class golf with sun, sand and endless iconic attractions, and you have a recipe for a truly unforgettable golf holiday.
