Voted second in the Top-25 Most Difficult list of local San Diego courses from the black tees, Carlton Oaks Golf Course is one of the top-rated golf courses in the San Diego area. It hosted the NCAA in 1974 (Curtis Strange won the individual title and, thanks to his eagle on the last hole, Wake Forest won the team title.)

The golf course is a typical Dye-design with deep pot bunkers, railroad ties, and peninsula lake greens, set among meandering creeks and matured trees.

There are water hazards that come into play on half the Carlton Oaks holes. The golf course was redesigned in 1989 by Perry Dye. The most difficult hole is #4, a 460-yard, par 4, requiring a long an accurate tee shot up a dogleg right fairway, then an approach shot past the mammoth sand bunker protecting the green.
