The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe now welcoming Junior members


Local golfers under the age of 40 have a unique opportunity to join The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe in a new membership category.

For a limited time, individuals under the age of 40 may join the club as Junior golf members, entitled to the same use privileges as Equity golf members. The current initiation fee for Junior members is $35,000. Junior golf members will also pay reduced monthly dues, commensurate with their age.

“The idea of giving a price break to younger golfers has been percolating for years, so we finally put it to a vote,” said General Manager Sean McCune. “Our long-time members are excited to welcome a new generation of golfers into the club.”

The Bridges Club is currently ranked as the best in San Diego and the 15th among top golf venues in California by Golf Digest magazine. In January, the practice facility was honored as one of the “Top 50 Ranges” for a private facility in the United States by the Golf Range Association of America.

Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., this iconic North San Diego Country Club is famous for its signature collection of unusually engineered and beautiful bridges, including the two 285-foot-long stress-ribbon bridges that span dramatic ravines, 85 feet in the air. Since opening in 1999, the 6,965-yard championship course has hosted such prestigious events as The Battle at the Bridges, a nationally-televised skins game that attracted the likes of Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods.

Golf membership at The Bridges includes privileges at a new $5 million Tennis & Recreation Centre as well as a state-of-the-art Sports Centre. With 11 unique menus served at four dining facilities, The Bridges puts a premium on the culinary arts. This summer, The Bridges will host the American Junior Golf Association’s 2013 Wyndham Cup, an annual team competition that attracts the nation’s top 40 junior golfers in an East-versus-West team match play tournament.
