Conjuring the charm and architecture of a deluxe Mediterranean hideaway, The Grand, located in Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve a short drive from the city, offers “endless summer” weather, six celebrated restaurants, a throbbing nightclub/sports bar, and a fantastic Tom Fazio-designed course. The well-groomed 7,160-yard layout, swept by Pacific breezes, has rolling fairways framed by sage, scrub, and native pepper trees. Shimmering water features and sculpted bunkers guard the undulating greens. There’s also an award-winning spa and an equestrian center at the resort.
