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.

Truly a Journey

Pechanga resort truly pulled out all the stops on this Amazing Journey through their back valley hillside. The course is groomed emaculately and plays very nice. The greens are extremely difficult however, there is No such thing as a gimmie put here. The staff is very friendly and helpful and makes the experience very enjoyable. I also got lunch at the snack shack which was tops at very reasonable prices. If you are in the area and have time for a round I Highly recommend you play here.

Outstanding Course!

Played well today. Gave condition a 4 rating only because I don’t like brown fairways. But in reality the color had no bearing on the great lies I had. If the color was green I would have given 5 stars. Green were very fair today. Medium speed. Bunkers were incredibly nice. First cut around the greens were near perfect conditions. I love this course. Highly recommend to anyone who loves quality golf.

Greens

You need to know how far you hit your clubs to play this course. Lots of forced carries, trees, ponds, and other things. Hit left fairway and went into the water on the right on one hole. Lots of bird droppings, which I didn't like. Putting surface was tough. Worst putting round I've ever had, not sure if it was me or the course. Tough pin placements, lots of undulation. One of my favorite courses, so I must be a masochist. Great chipping area for warm up.

Range balls included with green fees, went out as a twosome as the other two didn't show. Passed a slow foursome on the forth hole and another foursome let us through at the turn finished in 3.5 hours from 12:30 to 4:00. Greens are really fast and difficult.

Pechanga Jan 2021

Greens are perfect like usual. Fairways are in tough shape because they didn’t over seed but the golf course is always nice. Saw two coyotes. They need to do something about the Coots on 15 green. A lot of bird poop there

Amazing course

Great golf course, I brought about ten different friends there over the last couple years and everyone loves it . There are alot of 100 to 150 dollar courses in near me that aren't worth half that. Journeys is worth every penny.

Yikes

I’ve played this course numerous times and this was by far the worst experience here. The grass is dormant so it makes for tough fairways and lightning greens.our golf cart was broken making it a long round as it would just shut off every 2 minutes. The range was closed pay all that money to use the amenities that weren’t even open. Especially because of the price there’s no doubt in my mind redhawk, glen ivy, and cross creek are better overall experiences!

It’s winter so the fairways were pretty yellow and not lush at all. Only 3 holes were cart path only. Tee boxes, greens and rough around the greens were really good. Customer service was excellent, Vincent is a super friendly/ informative starter . Layout is beautiful with great views of the valley from 6, 17 & 18. Will definitely be back in the spring!
