Attraction details
Owner description: Nestled amidst the majestic foothills of Temecula's wineries and the world-famous Safari Park, Castle Creek Country Club is located in San Diego's North County, just 35 minutes north of downtown San Diego. Founded in 1948, Castle Creek Country Club is steeped in tradition. Originally opened as the Circle R Country Club, the club is home of the scenic Castle Creek Golf Course, a PGA approved, 18-hole championship golf course that offers a 5-star Southern California golf course experience at an affordable rate. The par 72 golf course was designed by Jack Daray, whose credits include Olympia Fields CC (home of the 2003 U.S. Open), and challenges golfers with oak-lined fairways, white sand bunkers, undulating greens and intermittent play over Moosa Creek, adding character and challenge to every hole. The temperate climate and sunny skies make this course a year-round golfers paradise. We offer men's, women's, and junior sets of tees and recently added a new set of championship tees to create a 6,638 yard course with a 72.00 rating and a 134 slope. Castle Creek Country Club is a great place to have fun with family and friends. The Gopher Hole sports bar offers numerous TVs throughout, 20 craft and standard beers on tap and entertainment on the weekends. In addition, The Gopher Hole offers scenic views of the golf course and rolling foothills from any seat in the house. Castle Creek Country Club is a great place for meetings, banquets, romantic weddings and other special events. All of our facilities have scenic views of the golf course and rolling foothills. At Castle Creek Country Club, we understand that our success depends on the satisfaction of our valued members and visitors, so we are committed to providing the greatest experience for you and your guests. We hope to see you soon!

This is a very challenging course in a rural part of Escondido, CA. There are some serious carries across creeks and brush. There are some daunting uphill holes. And finally there are narrow fairways! It is a friendly place. One drawback if the lack of a driving range.

We have visited the Escondido area the past two spring breaks and golfed everywhere around Castle Creek, and finally on our last outing took the plunge - what a nice surprise. We teed off around 8:00 so things were still bit dewy and the greens a tad slow, but things dried up quickly and the green speed increased accordingly. While not Oak Quarry (my area fave), and with houses a tad close on some holes, this is a very interesting layout with some tricky holes. Overall course was in great spring shape and for around $35 through GolfNow, offered excellent value. If I was to return to the area, I would certainly play again, but would likely play from a longer set of tees than the whites as a number of the par 4's were quite short, so I was playing driver/wedge for a lot of them. Staff in the pro-shop and concession were excellent, calling us to advise that they had found my son's wedge he had left on-course. In all, a positive experience.

Enjoyed a round of 18 here on 11/14/2013. Course was in good shape, not manicured, but quite playable. Pace was good as we played as a couple with three foursomes in front of us. It never felt slow and we finished in 4.5 hours.

Hole descriptions on their web site would have you belive this was a monster course, but it's not. The holes are challenging, but not impossible.

Definitely worth a try especially if you are staying at the Welks resort down the road.
