California is known as a trend-setting state
adopting new styles and pushing the envelope for
emulate. The array of golf in California, though, is
a tough act to follow. From the sheer number of
courses (more than 600) to the quality (arguably the
best course in the world), and diversity (coastal,
desert, mountain and so on), California has set the
bar so high it may never be matched.
The bottom line is that when it comes to great golf
vacations, California has everything you could
possibly want, and more.

**Note: From Mid-September
to early November every year, the golf courses in
this State will undergo a process called
overseeding. This program may take up to a month to
complete it's cycle meaning course selection will be
limited and course quality may also be diminished.
Merit Golf Vacations monitors the schedule very
closely to make sure the courses in your golf
package are not affected.
