TEMECULA, CA – Known for its championship golf courses, hot air balloon adventures and award-winning wineries, Temecula just got even more magical with the debut of Cross Creek Golf Club’s spectacular new wedding and event venue, The Oaks at Cross Creek.  Nestled within 3,000 acres of stunning wine country with majestic views, The Oaks delivers superlative guest service, exquisite dining and picturesque event space for special events of all sizes and occasions – from intimate rehearsal dinners and Board meetings to romantic weddings, golf tournament banquets and lavish fundraising galas.

Designed with understated elegance in mind, The Oaks’ flexible event space reflects a deep reverence for the natural beauty and rich history of Temecula Valley shared by Cross Creek Golf Club Co-Owners Ken and Blaine Smith.  In addition to acquiring and revitalizing the golf club in 2021, Ken Smith founded Southwest Traders, a food distribution company now among the top 50 privately-owned food service companies in the U.S.; purchased and took Galway Downs out of bankruptcy, turning it into one of the top equestrian centers in the western U.S.; and owns Galway Spirits, Danza del Sol Winery, Masia de la Vinya Winery and Indian Oaks Campground. 

“We couldn't be more excited to reintroduce Cross Creek to the Temecula Valley!  After more than a decade of idle ownership, it has been amazing to see the quick turnaround of this incredible property,” says Blaine Smith.  “The addition of The Oaks provides endless opportunities for guests to experience the property outside of golf.  The natural setting and breathtaking views provide the perfect venue for any type of event.  Along with our outstanding staff, Ken and I look forward to welcoming in the community for unforgettable events at The Oaks at Cross Creek.”

Ideal for receptions, banquets, association meetings and other large-scale events, Cross Creek’s indoor Oak Room features floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views, along with upscale furnishings, seating for up to 240 guests and a lovely outdoor deck.  For vow renewals, wedding ceremonies and wedding party functions as unique and distinct as each couple, The Oaks at Cross Creek’s scenic Oak Terrace, secluded Oak Grove and Stone Landing overlook provide memorable backdrops with awe-inspiring views of the Table Mountains.

Complementing The Oaks at Cross Creek’s superb event space and one-of-a-kind setting is a team of talented catering and event specialists on hand to ensure every detail is flawlessly executed.  A variety of customized event packages and menus tailored to each host’s tastes, style and budget are available, including vegetarian, vegan and other dietary options.  Wedding photography, entertainment, floral design and other services can also be arranged for an all-inclusive experience that creates lasting memories.

The Oaks at Cross Creek is just one of the many remarkable amenities open to the public at Cross Creek Golf Club.  The club’s gorgeous Arthur Hills designed championship golf course and expansive practice facilities serve as focal points for golf tournaments, player development programs, league play, social outings and daily play with family and friends.  Attractively priced membership options and stay ‘n play packages are also available.
