You could travel the world, but nothing comes close to the golden coast.

Katy Perry

The Golden State has some of the most fun and diverse sights in the world – think redwood forests, mountains, deserts, vineyards, and coasts, and of course,  Hollywood. Bound by the Pacific Ocean, the Mexican border, Nevada, and Arizona, it beams with sunny skies and an endless sense of adventure.

All of this makes for something of a Golfer’s paradise – Californians love their tee time in the sunshine. Here, golf dates back to the early 19th century when its oldest club, the Mare Island Golf Club was built in 1892. California has hosted the US Open for several years and continues to be one of professional and novice golfers’ favorite golf getaway destinations in the world.
