Opened in 1957, this course is mostly for the locals -- and visitors -- who just can't bear to leave the "island" of Coronado. It's an 18-hole, par-72 course with distractingly beautiful views of San Diego Bay, the Coronado Bridge, and the downtown skyline beyond; there are also a coffee shop, pro shop, and driving range. Half of the daily tee times are awarded via a day-of-play lottery (6-8:59am); the rest can be obtained by calling tel. 619/435-3122 up to 2 days out, or tel. 619/435-3121 ext. 1, 3 to 14 days prior ($30 fee). If you don't win the lottery, you can still add your name to a standby list and step in for no-shows. Greens fees are $30 for 18 holes; cart fees are $16 per person. For twilight play (1pm winter, 4pm summer), greens fees are $15; cart rates are $11 per person. Club rental is $50, $30 twilight rate.
