San Luis Rey Downs Golf & Country Club, is a Resort, 18 hole golf course located in Bonsall, California.
San Luis Rey Downs golf course first opened in 1963. The course was designed by William F. Bell.
San Luis Rey Downs golf course is a 6,750 yard championship eighteen hole golf course layout that winds through the heart of the San Luis Rey River Valley. From the elevated first tee to the rising par five finishing hole, this par 72 course has a genuine, natural appeal. The course demands strategic positioning from tee to green, to avoid hitting some of the many beautiful Eucalyptus trees you will find on the course
San Luis Rey Downs Golf Resort is a tight test with water on six holes and about a half-dozen doglegs. Accuracy and being able to shape golf shots both count big here. The golf course is tougher than it looks on the card, which has five par-3's, five par-5's and no consecutive same par holes on the back nine.
Blue tees: par-72, 6,750 yards, course rating 72.3, slope rating 128.
White tees: par-72, 6,365 yards, course rating 70.5, slope rating 125.
Red tees: par-72, 5,493 yards, course rating 72.1, slope rating 124.
The 51 year old course closed in 2014. Reports say the land has been sold and the new owners will use it as a land bank exchange investment turning the land back to wetlands under the land bank program.
