California Mission Trail ... with Golf! Stage One

The California mission trail stretches from San Diego in the south to Sonoma in the North. Their findings took place over a 54-year period (1769 to 1823) and a total 21 historic sites. The architecture of the day is preserved, offering a glimpse of the history of the region that would become the 31st state. Today, these outposts pair well with other area attractions, including wineries, beaches and, of course, golf. As we travel from north to south, join us along our trace as we feature a worthwhile golf course near each stop across this expansive network of historical sites.
