Golf Course Review Journey at Pechanga Temecula California
Reviewed by: mpisarski01, Costa Mesa
TEE TIME- 8:10
WEATHER – 40°
POP- 4HR 50MIN
Decided to head out to Pechanga for a little golf and gambling. We bought the Underpar deal which includes 2 people for $200 and a bounce back certificate. I knew in the back of my head that there would be a frost delay due to the very cold overnight temperatures. Right when we walked in at 7:30 there was a sign stating that there was indeed a frost delay. The clubhouse staff let us know that we had about an hour or so before they could open the range. We decided to eat at the restaurant and the breakfast was spectacular. About thirty minuets after arriving the staff came around and let everyone know that they were going to start teeing off in 10 minuets. he only issue we had was instead of a shotgun they just tee’d off in order so we still ended up teeing off 1 hour after our tee time.
Course is in fantastic shape right with the exception of some Ground Under Repair (GUR) on 2,7,16,18 which are CPO they looked to have suffered some storm damage and they had laid new Sod down already. Other than those minor issues all fairways were near perfect with consistent roll and fluffy lies. The Rough was very nasty which makes for 3 rounds in a row where balls were easily lost in the 3-5 inch rough, I will have nightmares about this for weeks. Greens were running about a 12 on the scale and were mostly firm. The par three’s seemed to be little softer than others which was a good thing. Tee’s need to be moved but they all were well spaced and provided a level hitting surface. I did notice that each hole had 2-3 Super Lush tee boxes that maybe they are using for a tournament. These boxes were twice as nice as what they were using so it was a little confusing. I was not in any sand but per my playing partners it was fantastic.
Overall this place is a lot of fun and usually has fantastic conditions. Staff is super friendly even with the craziness of a frost delay and 5hr POP. I will gladly come back anytime. Even if you pay rack rate I think its still worth it.
