• Overview

    Temecula Creek Inn, Temecula

    The Temecula Creek Inn was voted as one of Condé Nast Traveller Reader’s Choice Top 25 Hotels in Southern California for 2017.  With tremendous character and charm, the Temecula Creek Inn provides excellent accommodation, a super 27-hole golf course on-site and is surrounded with views of the mountains.  The Resort also features an outdoor pool with spa tub and the fitness centre provides free weights and cardio machines.

    The Resort is located in the Temecula Valley, which is wine country.  With gently rolling hills blanketed with rows of vineyards, the Temecula Valley has been producing top wines since the 1970’s.  And like the best vintages, this wine country just gets better with age.  It’s a diverse growing region, home to everything from cooler climate grapes like Chardonnay to such warm-weather loving varieties as Syrah and Grenache.  The tasting experience is varied, too.  We can visit posh wineries with lavish restaurants overlooking the vines, or stroll the streets of Old Town Temecula, with quality boutiques, eateries and a relaxed Old West feel.  Temecula is a wonderful location and perfect for our second week in Southern California.

    Please see Itinerary for details of the courses to be played.

    The Temecula Creek Golf Resort has recently received the coveted Four-Star rating from Golf Digest for places to play.  The 27 holes consist of three quite unique loops of 9-holes.  From the traditional adjoining fairways of the Creek course, to the scenic beauty of the Oaks, to the dramatic elevation changes of the precision-demanding Stonehouse course, this is golf at its purest and surrounded by nature at its finest.

    ~ 18 holes Rancho Bernardo Golf Club

    We head off-site today to the recently renovated and most impressive San Diego Championship Golf Course at the Rancho Bernardo Inn.  The course has hosted both PGA and LPGA events, and continues to present golfers of all skill levels with a challenging and rewarding day on the course. The course is managed by JC Golf Management, one of San Diego’s top Golf Course Management companies.  The property completed a successful 24-month greens renovation project to its championship golf course. The new putting surfaces receive daily rave for turf quality and their new challenging enhancements.  After 50 years, the golf course continues to be a favourite among San Diego golfers as well as travellers from around the world, as we will find out for ourselves.

    Tuesday 19th February:      Temecula Creek Golf Resort

    ~ Breakfast

    ~ 18 holes Temecula Creek Golf Club

    We will enjoy a second round at Temecula Creek Golf Club today, playing a different 18-hole combination to the round on Sunday. The most challenging of the Temecula Creek golf courses is the Stonehouse nine, which demands precise tee shots in order to get lower scores. The dramatic changes in elevation and bends require accurate shot shaping and distance control. The more traditional Oaks provides a lot of fun, with memorable shots required that will leave us thinking this was how golf was meant to be played!  The Oak-lined fairways are forgiving and give us great looks into glass-like greens.  The Creek golf course will give us the best chance to score. An open layout with direct approaches will set us up for the best shot at birdies.

    Wednesday 20th February:            Non-Golfing Day

    ~ Breakfast

    ~ Non-Golfing Day

    Temecula, in Temecula Valley, is known for being one of the jewels in California’s crown. The city sits in prime wine-making country and to that end much of the countryside is covered in gorgeous vineyards that are open to the public and can be toured if you want to know more about how wine is made and grapes harvested.  One of the best ways to enjoy Temecula is by taking off and looking down over the city in a hot air balloon, and balloon rides here are frequent and can be arranged via the hotel.  Parks, nature trails, lakes, and hiking spots also cover this part of California, but if we are looking for some culture then we also won’t be disappointed.  Not only will we find amazing shopping at places like Promenade Temecula, but we can also get back to the days of old at historic Old Town Temecula where we can learn all about how this city got its start.  During the course of the tour we can discuss any sightseeing requirements and tours and make necessary arrangements via the hotel.

    Thursday 21st February:                  Journey at Pechanga Golf Club

    ~ Breakfast

    ~ 18 holes Journey at Pechanga Golf Club

    Hidden in the heart of Southern California Wine Country, we will today experience an absolute gem of a golf course.  The Journey at Pechanga provides a golf experience filled with inspiring landscapes and spectacular mountain views.  It’s a challenging, yet playable golf course that will force us to use almost every club in our bag.  The course is most famous for the 488-yard, par-4 6th, which gives us a rare opportunity to tee off from a platform that sits 175 feet above the fairway.  From the fairway to the green there is another 100-foot drop!  With a good drive it is possible to almost make the green. A 440+ yard drive, now that’s something you can’t do on just any golf course!
