Swing into Father’s Day Weekend – Recommendations If You Don’t Have A Tee Time Yet!
We asked past La Jolla Country Club’s Champion, Nick Johnson, to give us a few golf course recommendations for the upcoming weekend if you’re still looking for a course and Father’s Day Weekend is only 2 days away.
Nick’s family has lived in the La Jolla Area since the 1960s and not only did he go to La Jolla High School, but so did his father. His grandparents even met there as teenagers! Nick is currently the host of the Off The Collar podcast spotlighting different professional women’s golfers from around the country in partnership with Backswing Golf Events.
