Barona Creek Golf Club at Barona Resort & Casino has been named to Golfweek magazine’s “Top Courses You Can Play In California”
Barona Creek Golf Club at Barona Resort & Casino has been named to Golfweek magazine’s “Top Courses You Can Play In California” list, earning a top 10 ranking on the list along with other prestigious courses including Pebble Beach, Pasatiempo, Spyglass Hill and Torrey Pines South.
Barona Creek has been a top course in the Golfweek rankings for the past 16 years in numerous categories including resort and casino properties.
“We are thrilled to have earned a top ranking once again this year,” said Don King, director of golf. “We are proud of our golf course and are committed to providing an exceptional golf experience for our players.”
Opened in 2001, the championship-caliber course was originally designed by Todd Eckenrode of Gary Roger Baird Design International. Eckenrode now leads all design for Origins Golf Design and provided assistance for Barona’s turf reduction project.
Barona Creek Golf Club is a 7,393-yard par 72 golf course with more than 114 multi-fingered bunkers and a series of lakes and ponds connected to the areas naturally fed streams. The course offers multiple sets of tees to accommodate players of all abilities. It features more than 170 mature native oak trees transplanted from other regions of the Barona Indian Reservation.
The course has also been recognized for its environmental efforts by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and San Diego Earthworks. With its state-of-the-art water reclamation and wastewater treatment facilities, Barona uses reclaimed water and rainwater runoff to irrigate the golf course and surrounding landscape. The course has also earned the prestigious Bronze Signature Sanctuary Certification from Audubon International for its conservation, environmental quality and land management efforts.
