Detailed description

Salt Creek Golf Club, formerly known as The Auld Course, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Chula Vista, California, just 20 minutes Southeast of Downtown San Diego and Mission Valley.

The Salt Creek golf course first opened for play in 2001. The course was designed by Cary Bickler and John Cook.

The Salt Creek Golf Club is a links style golf course. The course takes advantage of the natural terrain of San Diego County. Salt Creek is located near Mt. Miguel and is nestled next to a State Wildlife preserve. The course has elevated-tees, mountain views and, yes, some ocean views as well.

Salt Creek measures 6,889 yards from the back tees and 5,505 from the forward tees catering to all skill levels. The generous fairways and large greens provide a playable yet demanding golf experience.

Par for the course is 72. From the back tees, the course plays to 6,855 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 4,814 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 12, a par-5 that plays to 563 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 3, a par-3 that plays to 163 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 9, a 404 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Salt Creek is # 17, a 179 yard par-3.

The course closed March 18, 2018.

In its closing announcement, the course said that the rising costs of water coupled with fewer golfers, and the fact that the course had lost money since opening in 2000, despite the attempts by the current as well as previous owners’ attempts to make it work signaled that it was time to raise the white flag and close down operations.
