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.

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

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!

Amazing Views

The course was in great shape for the most part despite the recent overseeding and rain. We were very fortunate that it wasn't cart path only as there would be very long walka from path to your ball. There were some holes not marked path only but when you went off of the path, the cart would stop going forward and you could only drive in reverse back to the path.
The greens were amazing and were rolling around a 10 or 11 on the stimpmeter. Fast in spots if downhill but not unplayable.
The rough was pretty thick/long but totally playable. The fairways were great and your ball really sat up nicely. The only thing was the fairways were under repair on a few holes (1st hole- tore out strips of grass without replacing and 9th hole- took out the grass and put new grass in).
I had played summer 2019 and loved the layout. When I played yesterday, there were some wierd changes to holes 13 and 16 which were great holes that didn't need any adjustment. Hole 13 was a great uphill par 5 and they moved it up to 360 yards (par 4). It had a wierd feel and was a shame. Hole 16 was a great 420 yard par 4 hole with a lake down the entire left side and short of the green. They added 80 yards to make it a very weak par 5.
The views on 6, 17 and 18 are breathtaking and have your camera ready. If you're older, be aware that there are long walks from the cart path to green or tee complexes with down/uphill slopes. The last tee time is around 12 pm as the sun drops behind the mountain at around 330 and it gets dark very quickly and the temp drops about 10-15 degrees. Right now you can see until around 415 or so but its a shame to miss the views on 17 and 18 of the temecula valley.
I truly love this course but am bummed with what they did on 13 and 16.

Fun and challenging

Heard a lot about the course and finally got to l play it. Conditions were great. Greens rolled true and relatively fast. Only bad thing was that it was cart path only for this month. Played from the tips and several of the par 4s were close to 500 yards in length. Really have to be on from the tee. There are a few beautiful yet gimmicky holes where you’re driving the ball down hill and not knowing really where to land etc. I got lucky first timer most of the day. Overall awesome track and I’ll be back!

Ok.

For the money paid to play here, not worth it. Could not drive on the fairways. Lots of walking. 5 hours round.

Can't wait to play it when dry

Played FRI OCT 9. The course was recently reseeded and flooded o it was quite wet and cart path only, which made club selection challenging.

There are some great holes and a couple of blind landings, but the cart GPS maps are very good.

Starter was delightful and we'll play again soon once its dry.

Golf In A Swamp

I've played this course a few times before and enjoyed it. Today, it was like playing in a swamp. The fairways and rough were so wet that everything was muddy. And because of this, they stipulated cart-path-only. This combined with no marshall to speed up a very slow foursome, resulted in a 5 hour 15 minute round. It was torture.

Very Challenging Course

Unfortunately, the course recently layed seed and saturated the course with water. The course layout is absolutely beautiful. There are plenty of challenging holes that require both distance and accuracy. If you are a 10 handicap or higher I recommend you play the white tees until you are familiar with the lay of the land. The greens were in great shape with a medium to fast speed. The carts are quite nice. Water, tees, practice facility with range balls are all provided with your green fee. Enjoy.
