Golf shines at Pala Mesa Resort in Fallbrook, between Temecula wine country and scenic northern San Diego
FALLBROOK, Calif. -- Pala Mesa Resort is situated between Temecula wine country and the scenic North County region of San Diego, making it a perfect getaway destination.
It's also just a short drive from the San Diego Zoo. The resort offers one of southern California's most challenging courses. The par-72 layout is also known as one of the most beautiful in San Diego thanks to its scenic setting in the foothills of Temecula. Mature oak, elm, and sycamore trees blanket the rolling hills without getting in the way of the stunning mountain views. You will be met with challenges at every turn on this tough course.
The narrow front nine starts off with tight, tree-lined fairways that demand accuracy. There is some respite on the gentler back nine, allowing you to take in the incredible views. Though some of the elevation changes can be dramatic, the wider fairways are a little more forgiving.

In addition to golf, Pala Mesa Resort has numerous other amenities and nearby attractions to enjoy, including four tennis courts, a pool and hot tub, and fitness center. Situated in the heart of San Diego wine country, it is also just minutes away from some of the best local wineries.
