Golf Course Conditions 7.96 GREAT
Golf Course Conditions 7.96 GREAT

10:10am Sat. tee time at the Journey and a Pace of Play (PoP) of 5 hrs which included short waits at many tee boxes. The course and surrounding resort are visually stunning considering you’re in Temecula and the area has some interesting rolling hills and water features. Lucky to play here in the Spring when everything is green and flowers are blooming. Well thought out layout with a large variety of golf holes … a bit of course knowledge is helpful but not required as they have good GPS on the carts. Not a walking course due to some super long distances between greens and tees. A bit pricey ($110 as hotel guests) but once in a while it’s worth it and the Journey I would agree is worth it … maybe only once a year.

Conditions were very good, tee to green. A few bare areas in fairways which did not deter the beautiful surroundings. Rough mostly lush but some thin area the farther away you move from the fairways. Greens running medium speed … true rolls, a bit firm … with only a few sunflower seeds from amazing, selfish dim-wits. I mean really, why spit shells on greens and tee boxes … bring a cup. Bunkers had great sand only marred by clientele who chose not to use a rake.

The Bottom-Line

Great experience here at Pechanga (minus the casino which I avoided) and would come again for sure … if you’ve not played here it’s one to add to the list. I’m glad I did.
