Set in the secluded Sorrento Valley north of San Diego, the luxurious Fairmont Grand Del Mar is offering a holiday package that includes a new custom-fitted driver and dinner at one of California’s most acclaimed restaurants.

It’s hard to imagine a more luxurious spot to spend the holiday season than Fairmont Grand Del Mar, one of Southern California’s top golf resorts.

Inspired by the palaces of Spain, the property is unrestrained in its opulence. Gold, marble and crystal flourishes are seen throughout a 249-room retreat set in the secluded Sorrento Valley north of San Diego. Foodies flock here to sample the French-influenced artisanal cuisine at Addison, one of California’s premier fine dining restaurants.

But for golfers the prime attraction is Grand Del Mar Golf Club, a brawny 7,160-yard design by the great Tom Fazio punctuated by dramatic shifts in elevation.

Offered to the end of February, the All He Wants for Christmas package includes overnight accommodation, one round of golf, a custom-fitted driver (guests may choose from several brands), and a four-course dinner for two at Addison. Package rates start from $1,100(US) double occupancy.
