Golfers can escape to Temecula Valley Southern California Wine Country for a safe place to tee up and take in the panoramic landscapes. Three notable courses, Temecula Creek Golf Club, CrossCreek Golf Club, and Journey at Pechanga, afford the most spectacular views of age-old trees, epic mountain views, and sprawling vistas overlooking the rolling hills of Temecula Valley.
Golf has emerged as a popular outdoor activity that can provide safe distancing and no contact during concerns of COVID-19 spread. Players are asked to wear face masks inside the clubhouse, keep their distance on the course, keep the flagstick in, and forgo celebratory high fives and handshakes.
Temecula Creek Golf Club
Temecula Creek Golf Club is a 27-Hole championship golf course with breathtaking views of stunning Temecula Valley as the course meanders through more than 300 acres of natural beauty. Dramatic mountain views, elevation changes, mature trees, and water features throughout the 27 holes are just part of the reason Temecula Creek Golf Club course has received a Four-Star rating from Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” list of top courses throughout the country. Full-service driving range, golf pro shop, and PGA Golf instructors add to this Temecula Creek’s allure. Temecula Creek Inn and Cork|Fire Kitchen expect to open this fall for overnight accommodations and dining.

CrossCreek Golf Club
Legendary golf course designer Arthur Hills is the architect behind CrossCreek Golf Club and the result is epic. Age old oak and sycamore trees, freshwater streams, and seclusion from the outside world offer respite and challenge to golfers seeking both natural splendor and a test of skill. The par 71 layout, complete with various tee positions, makes the course accessible to all levels of play. A golf shop, PGA professionals, and CrossCreek Grille round out the experience.
