Both courses take advantage of the resorts 1.5 miles of Pacific coastline and magnificent dunes, with El Cardonal climbing after the first few holes into the foothills where sweeping vistas abound.Opened in 2014, Tiger says El Cardonal was influenced by the old-style courses of Southern California that he grew up playing, emphasizing the need for strategy and providing players with several shot options to navigate during each hole.The course is long enough to challenge expert players, but open enough to provides options for those with higher handicaps. And with those views, well, everyone comes away with a feeling of having had a memorable day regardless of score.bluejacknational.com 37'
