This is a hit and rip it course. With plenty of room on the fairways, you have to hit a pretty lousy shot to get into a lot of trouble. However, the fairway bunkers can be dangerou. Anything wild will most likely catch the native areas, which either have high grass, water or both.

Barona Creek has one of the best practice facilities in Southern California. The 10 acre practice area includes a 12,000-square-foot putting green, 6,000-square-foot chipping green and a 40-space, all-grass driving range.
