Journey at Pechanga championship golf course, one of the many high end amenities for guests on site at Pechanga Resort & Casino, is consistently rated among the top public courses in the country. A challenging and rewarding course for golfers of every level, it presents a range of topography – canyons, ravines, open fairways and even a tee shot with a 300-foot drop. Nestled in the foothills of the scenic Southern California wine country in Temecula Valley on the Pechanga Indian Reservation, adjacent to Pechanga Resort & Casino, Journey at Pechanga winds along a boulder-strewn mountain. Journey at Pechanga’s par-72, 18-hole golf course winds over 7,219 yards. Golf course architect, Arthur Hills, calls it “the perfect union of nature, form and function.” He refers to the unique stretch of land with sacred entities and cultural sensitivities to the Pechanga tribe. Journey focuses on highlighting the drama and natural beauty of the rare and distinctive site while preserving sensitive areas and creating a golf layout exhibiting the highest standards and traditions.
