Santaluz – Unparalleled Golf Course Living
From the idyllic greens of the golf course to private homesites with spectacular views, Santaluz is one of the most extraordinary newer communities in Southern California. Situated near Rancho Santa Fe, Santaluz has a pastoral yet energizing ambiance. Clusters of residences grace the gentle hillsides, with homesites strategically located to maintain ample open space.
Its charming 11-acre Village Green offers a magical community gathering place, while 18 miles of hiking trails and a stunning private golf course invite daily invigoration. Designed by Rees Jones, the 18-hole course was built around the area's natural features, resulting in a rustic and challenging course. The clubhouse, known as Hacienda Santaluz, is one of the most exclusive members-only country clubs in San Diego County and reveals a heated jr. Olympic-sized swimming pool, fitness facilities, tennis courts and, just for children, Camp Santaluz.
