C.S. Keys is best known in San Diego as a beloved sportscaster, emcee, and radio host. He is not, however, necessarily known as a golfer. But one course, Chula Vista’s Salt Creek Golf Club, inspired him to take the game more seriously. The former Chula Vista resident would often have friends and family visit, and Salt Creek was always first on the list of courses his out-of-town guests wanted to play. The layout is such that even the best golfers find it extremely challenging, while those who are just getting acquainted with the game can enjoy the experience as well. Not only did that provide the perfect activity for C.S. and his friends, but it opened his eyes to just how much fun the game of golf can be.

Salt Creek resembles a links-style layout, creating an open feel that gives golfers of all ability levels a false sense of security. Poor shots are penalized as severely as good shots are rewarded. And one thing you can always count on, no matter the season or weather: consistent greens. (That’s a biggie for any golfer.)

The dedication and loyalty of the staff is tangible. General manager Armando Najera, along with director of marketing Marco Ochoa, both worked their way up from their start in parking carts and setting up tourneys.

Another reason this golf course rocks? Its support of firefighters, police officers, military, border patrol, and more. They enjoy a generously reduced green fee that includes a golf cart.

And, like at so many of our city’s great courses, the views here are divine. Even if you’re not a golfer, it’s worth a trip just for lunch on the patio.
