The Rancho Santa Fe Association HOA provides various clubs and amenities for members. The Association is continually upgrading these facilities over time.
Trails, Fields & Open Spaces
The Covenant of Rancho Santa Fe boasts a unique and extensive network of private trails. Nearly 60 miles of equestrian and pedestrian trails are used exclusively by Covenant residents and their guests.
One of the most popular trail segments runs around the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Course, offering runners, walkers and horseback riders alike unparalleled views of the beautiful golf course and adjacent estate homes. Hikers and riders may order and pick up lunch from the Golf Club snack bar.
The varied terrain on other trail segments ranges from forested areas with overhanging tree canopies, to trails that run along local streams, and to segments with ocean vistas. In most areas, the trails are wide enough to allow two horseback riders to ride side-by-side. The extensive network has trail segments to suit horseback riders of all skill levels.
The Trails & Recreation Committee oversees the Covenant trail system as well as parks and open spaces in the area. Looking for a great way to relax with friends? The Trails and Recreation Committee hosts a monthly guided trail walk for members and their guests. Walks are designed for all ages and last about an hour, with appetizers and drinks following at the RSF Golf Club. To sign up to receive monthly updates on trail walks, you may email RSFA@RSFAssociation.org or call (858) 756-1174.
A trail guide is available exclusively to Rancho Santa Fe Association members. Please email Parks & Recreation for more information.
PLEASE AVOID PARKING ON TRAILS
Rancho Santa Fe is made up of narrow, winding roads, often with trails along the shoulder. Please exercise caution and avoid parking vehicles on trails.
Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club
The RSF golf course was designed and built in the late 1920s and is considered one of the finest courses in southern California. It recently underwent an extensive renovation in 2021/2022 that replaced all fairways with higher performing grass (ie. better playability in the winter months) and replaced and reshaped all bunkers. Only members of the RSF Association HOA may become members.
Nestled in the center of the historic and prestigious community of Rancho Santa Fe, our private Golf Club is available to homeowners within the boundaries of the Rancho Santa Fe Covenant. Our Max Behr designed golf course first opened in 1929 and is the original home of the Crosby Clambake, it has been recognized as one of the top 100 walking courses in America and described by a number of golf course architects as a rare blend of challenge and playability.
Our Ranch Clubhouse is both relaxed and casual. Whether it’s lunch on the patio after a horse ride, or a casual dinner in our restaurant after a friendly golf game, every community homeowner is able to enjoy the culinary and social pleasures of our very own Spanish- inspired, California-influenced, Ranch Clubhouse. Those who live here know that the lifestyle of our community is uniquely exclusive, casual, and special.

Arroyo & Ewing Preserves
Covenant residents may enjoy 68 acres of beautiful open space and nature at the Rancho Santa Fe Arroyo property. Located on the southeastern boundary of the Covenant of Rancho Santa Fe and along the San Dieguito River, the Arroyo provides a natural open space buffer from developments located further to the east. The property contains several different habitat types including wetland species, non-native grasslands, eucalyptus woodlands and upland areas.
The Arroyo features trails for hiking and horseback riding, a small fishing pond, and an area for overnight tent camping, which is popular with residents who have younger children. The Coast-to-Crest Trail, a 70-mile connection between Del Mar and Julian, runs through the Arroyo property.
The Arroyo is open to members and their guests daily from 7:00 am to dusk. A permit is required for camping and is available at no cost to Association residents. Please visit RSF Park Permit to reserve today. In order to have a camp fire, a separate permit is required with the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Department.
The Ewing Preserve is a 24.6-acre parcel of protected land in the southeast section of Rancho Santa Fe between Linea del Cielo and Via del Alba. It features several miles of popular walking and equestrian trails, and a beautiful limestone and eucalyptus landscape. The preserve is home to a variety of native plants, including endangered species, such as the Scrub Oak, Del Mar Manzanita and Southern Maritime Chaparral, one of California’s most endangered plants. The Association maintains and protects this land for use by its members.
RSF Connect: Symmetrical Gigabit Fiber Internet
Perhaps the most used Association facility is right under your feet. In 2017, the Association built an all underground fiber network giving all Association members access to a fully symmetric gigabit Internet service. This is a highly reliable system intentionally overbuilt to afford zero bottlenecks at any time of the day. Contact the Internet Service Provider, Race to get connected.
