YOCHA DEHE GOLF CLUB
You’ll feel like you’ve won the minute you step on this course. The Yocha Dehe Golf Club offers 18 holes of pure serenity along Cache Creek. Carved out of rolling hills and wine vineyards, the award-winning par-72 course has a host of breathtaking views all around.
From impeccable playing surfaces and gorgeous scenery, to remarkable facilities and a first-class staff, Yocha Dehe Golf Club is brimming with the brilliance that is a Troon Golf staple.
THE LINKS AT ROLLING HILLS
Golf Week magazine named The Links at Rolling Hills Casino and Resort as “best casino golf course” because of its versatile design with moveable tees and expansive beauty. California Golf also named the course as the #1 best course in the Shasta Cascade/North Coast Region. If you don’t have time for a full round of golf, work on your game at our all-natural turf driving range or our first rate short game practice facility.
JOURNEY AT PECHANGA
This course is a hidden gem. I visited here on Friday & greens were rolling really nice. Amazing view from hole 6. Besides Torrey Pines a view can’t get much better! The cart girls were awesome especially Monica. Her & V did several rounds while I was there & they came by with a great smile & attitude each time! For lunch I got a Caesar chicken wrap with added buffalo sauce. It was delicious, one of the better chicken wraps I’ve had. The chef did a good job,but definitely could use some more chicken in it for the price that it is. Will definitely be back in the spring once their course renovations are done. Hopefully I have the same experience next time stay tuned.

BARONA CREEK GOLF CLUB
I’ve been playing this course now about once a week for the past 5 months. Absolutely just love playing it and I get excited every time I have a round. The staff is all great and it’s by far one of my favorite courses in San Diego, right up there with Torrey Pines. Some really long par 5’s but a majority of the course is fair. Just stay in the fairways as much as possible obviously. If it’s hot, don’t venture too far out in to rattlesnake country. I shot an 84 one time here (great for me), and the next time out shot a 96, welcome to golf.
As previous yelpers stated, the greens are lighting fast and a short putt could easily add on a few strokes if you’re not careful. They have good food in the golf club restaurant as well.
I just got another round Monday. Ready to get out there!
