Golf in Temecula
Temecula has several championship golf courses cooled by the valley's ocean breezes.
Redhawk Golf Club. Considered one of the best 18-hole public golf courses in California, the Ron Fream–designed championship golf course is designed to take advantage of Temecula's tree-studded rolling hills set against craggy mountains. The course holds a bunch of traps to challenge your swing or putt. Watch out for wind, doglegs, skinny sand traps, and tiered greens. Rico's Cantina here offers Mexican and Italian items, served up buffet-style for breakfast or lunch. 45100 Redhawk Pkwy., Temecula, CA, 92592. 951/302–3850. www.redhawkgolfcourse.com. $60 on weekdays; $80 on weekends. 18 holes, 7110 yards, par 72.
Temecula Creek Inn Golf Resort. For a special treat, head to the Temecula Creek Inn Golf Resort, designed by Ted Robinson and Dick Rossen. The Inn's 27 holes offer golfers three distinct course options in picturesque Southern California wine country.
