Journey at Pechanga was built on the ancestral land of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians. The land is also home to "The Great Oak," one of the largest natural growing, indigenous coastal, live oak trees in the U.S. It is estimated to be anywhere from 850 to 1,500 years old. The golf course was carefully carved from the rolling hills that stretch Pechanga Creek to the surrounding mountains. Great care was taken in creating the course in order to preserve the beautiful land that has been home to the Pechanga Tribe for countless generations. Mature California oaks frame most of the holes and the dramatic elevations provide breathtaking views of Temecula Valley. The challenging layout will reward accurate shot-making but will punish any errant shots.

Beware of play on a HOT DAY!

Many Holes were Cart Path Only.’
Cart Path diversions on other holes were many, many yards from the green, requiring walking to your ball far from the Greens, almost as bad as cart part only.

While the course is very well maintained, it will not be in our list for the future on a HOT DAY.

Play golf with my son on his birthday. Golf course was open. The staff was awesome. The golf course is always challenging and I enjoy playing it in the afternoon in the wind I would recommend this golf course to anyone who likes the challenge and playing in the wind.

Worth a detour

Hidden gem which doesn’t get much attention. Course is partnered with casino and everything was first rate . The clubhouse was clean, had great breakfast choices. The staff in the Proshop and starter were first class. The course itself was in outstanding shape. Great challenging holes which offer many choices in shot making. GPS on carts was very helpful and helped pace of play. Zach said it is now one of his favorite courses in SoCal to play and will bring out of towners to play here when visiting. Make the drive you won’t be disappointed.

Journey worth the trip

Love playing Journey! It’s one of the very few courses properly marshalled- they let groups out every 15 minutes; so by the time you finish the first hole the next group starts. Feels like you have the course to yourself.

fun and challenging layout, but punched greens

This course is a lot of fun, with several elevated tees and some great views. The biggest downside was the greens had been aerated recently and were very bumpy. I realize all courses need to do this, but they should let golfers know before we pay $160 to play. Very disappointed.

Another great time

Staff as usual was very friendly from pro shop, cart staff to starter. I got there 1.5 hours early and they were very accomodating in getting me out within 45 minutes. Overall course was in good shape but I was hoping the greens would have been in a little better shape after punching 10 days earlier. They were much slower which made lag patting easier but it was hard to make anything within 15'. The layout is breathtaking and the afternoon wind makes the course very challenging.
