Stardust Motor Hotel, San Diego 1960s
This stylish menu is from the 1960s when the Mission Valley Country Club in San Diego became the Stardust Hotel.
The 225-room Stardust, only minutes away from downtown San Diego, had a 27-hole golf course for year-round play, resort facilities for swimming and tennis, dining and dancing and a Reef Lounge where a spectacular underwater ballet was performed nightly.
In its previous incarnation, the country club had hosted the San Diego Open Invitational from 1957-61, crowning the great Arnold Palmer as champion twice.
After being renamed in 1962, the Stardust hosted other events won by legends such as Gary Player (1963) and Billy Casper (1966). Phil Mickelson worked at the Stardust practice area in the mid1980s picking up range balls.
The construction of the San Diego Trolley in the 1990s forced another redesign and the Riverwalk Golf Club was born.
There is now a Hilton hotel at the site too.
