Situated among the rolling hills just north of San Diego lies the Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa. The clubhouse, characterized by its southern-style similar to that of old Rancho estates, welcomes all to the stunning resort of Rancho Valencia. With over 45 acres of gorgeous, serene, Southern Californian gardens you might get lost in all the bliss, but there is still plenty to explore from the soft sandy beaches in the West to the trendy, bustling city of San Diego in the South. If you’re wanting a stay like no other, then look no further.
Rancho Valencia is very much a tennis resort, with 18 courts built in little groups around the area, you don’t have to go far to find a place to play. 16 of the courts are hard and 2 of them are new red-clay courts, although none of them are lit. There is a court dedicated to the self-feeding ball machine and all court time is free for use.
The tennis director that leads the Rancho Valencia programs is former WTA touring pro, Robin White. Both her and her team of tennis professionals put on extensive clinics that can last longer than most and that focus on all aspects of the game while also allowing for some play between the pros and the students. They also offer a variety of family options as well as a Stay and Play package allowing you to stay a night and get over $150 in tennis credit to use.
Other activities offered at the Rancho Valencia include croquet on the lawn situated next to the main building. There are multiple golf courses scattered around the place although none are part of the Rancho Valencia. If you are staying at the resort you have playing privileges at several of the nearby courses. Also available is the 10,000 square foot spa with several treatment rooms and outdoor gardens, the fitness center is also located here which offers all types of workouts and group classes.
