These Casino Courses Provide Unique Golf Experiences

Challenging and Fair

The courses at Sycuan and Pechanga Casinos are challenging, fair and memorable for their settings leaving players wanting more.

The biggest gamble most of us face on the golf course is choosing whether to go for a green guarded by water or play it safe and lay up.

The courses at Sycuan and Pechanga definitely offer such dilemmas, but other risks/rewards are available at these venues that make for a unique golf experience. These courses are part of resort properties located adjacent to casinos, providing players an opportunity for gaming and enjoying other entertainment after they’ve putted out. The properties feature courses that are challenging but fair, memorable for their settings and leave players wanting more.

Here’s a glance at both courses:


Sycuan Golf Resort

Golfers could spend a weekend golfing at Sycuan Golf Resort and never leave the property. Willow Glen and Oak Glen are full-size, par-72 courses, measuring 6,687 and 6,682 yards, respectively. Pine Glen is a par-3 course that offers an opportunity to work on short game shortcomings or play with family members or friends who may find a bigger course too daunting. Formerly known as Singing Hills Country Club (also about 30 minutes east of downtown San Diego), the courses are situated in the Dehesa Valley with beautiful mountain and valley views. Willow Glen and Oak Glen are set amid the trees that inspired the courses’ names, feature elevation changes, doglegs, ponds and streams to provide golfers with a variety of looks and challenges.

The Sycuan Casino is a five-minute drive from the course. In addition to gaming, it includes several restaurants and a nearly 500-seat theatre that showcases well-known music and comedy acts.

Golfing Journey at Pechanga

This course takes advantage of the setting's mature oak trees and natural rock formations while making full use of the natural hills and valleys. Located in Temecula, just north of the San Diego County line, the par-72 course stretches 7,219 yards from the back tees. The cultural significance of the Pechanga Tribe is evident on several of the holes, where “sacred” areas have been preserved. The views at the higher elevations are spectacular, especially from the tee box at No. 6, a 435-yard, par-4 which features a 175-foot drop to the landing area below. There are a good variety of looks from hole-to-hole to keep golfers interested from start to finish, with bunkers, ponds or streams posing challenges that need to be considered on every hole.

In addition to a challenging yet playable 18-hole golf course, Pechanga has nine great places to dine including three gourmet restaurants. It also has a 1,200-seat theatre that brings in big-name music acts and other entertainment.
