Detailed description

Cross Creek Golf Club is a Semi-Private 18 hole golf course located just north of San Diegoin Temecula, California.

Cross Creek Golf Club first opened for play in 2001. The course was designed by Arthur Hills.

Cross Creek was laid out on 180 rolling acres and boasts four sets of tees to challenge golfers of all skill levels. The course features many large Oaks and Sycamores, and golfers must negotiate a series of creeks which intersect the course. Elevation changes offer several beautiful views of nearby Temecula's hill country. Cross Creek is a semi-private club, offering public access to a club of exclusive feel.

The steep hills create bold elevation changes that produce blinds shots to slick, tight greens. The tree lined fairways and tees swallow shots make things difficult for players who can't keep it straight.

The natural hazards on the Arthur Hills designed course demand careful shot making, beginning on the first hole, a dogleg right lined with trees that requires a tee shot to the left to avoid a layup. The first five holes border Sycamore Creek, bringing water into play early. The most dynamic water holes are #9, a demanding par 4 with a large pond to the left of the green, and #17, the signature hole, a downhill par-3 that crosses a creek to an elevated green. The par 5 7th, the longest hole on the course, plays into a breeze that increases its length. The 13th, a downhill dogleg par 4 demands an elevated tee shot across a deep valley. The 18th, a dramatic finishing hole, features a long uphill shot over a deep ravine to a well guarded green.

The course features firm hard to hold fairways, rough edged bunkers that are difficult to escape, and firm, fast greens that slope away for tricky putts.

Par for the course is 71. From the back tees the course plays to 6833 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 4606 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 7, a par-5 that plays to 540 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 17, a par-3 that plays to 170 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 9, a 457 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Cross Creek Golf Club is # 17, a 170 yard par-3.
