The Ultimate Golf Getaway: It's Time to Par-Tee

Winter is the perfect time to round up your crew and head out for a golf getaway to enjoy perfect weather and bonding as you partake in friendly competition.

Welk Resorts San Diego and Welk Resorts Palm Springs both offer unique opportunities to make a weekend out of some of the top local golf courses.

We sat down with Jim Hill, General Manager at Desert Oasis by Welk Resorts in Palm Springs, to talk about how golf is evolving, and how Welk Resorts continues to compete.

Golf is about the experience and with whom and where. Yes, playing a good game and playing a great course is important, but at the end of the day, it’s about playing with your buddies. For a golfer, it’s that time in their week when they can unplug and be free from all the cares of the everyday," Jim explained. "Here at Welk Resorts, we believe that golf is a people business. And as a resort that operates golf courses, we know that if we create an entire experience for our golfers, we’ll hopefully win their loyalty."

Due to similar corporate philosophies, Welk Resorts and JC Resorts have partnered to enhance guest and owner experiences by hiring the right people to cultivate a culture that encourages fun on the course.

Cathedral Canyon Country Club, under the ownership of Welk Resorts and the management of JC Resorts, has revitalized both its golf course and clubhouse, infusing the surrounding community with a renewed sense of excitement. The revamped clubhouse features a fully stocked pro shop, food and beverage facilities, and a banquet space for social gatherings.

While Palm Springs may be known for its high-end courses where green fees can soar up to $300 per round, Cathedral Canyon’s fees are competitively priced at just $59 per round during the high season or $39 per round for resort guests—perfect for anyone golfing on a budget!

If San Diego is more your style, head to Welk Resorts San Diego for a unique par three course at the Oaks that will help improve your short game. Or check out the Fountains, the 450-acre executive course that is fun for players of all skill levels. No matter which course you play, find out why GOLF DIGEST has named Welk Resorts San Diego one of the "Best Places to Play.”

No clubs? No spikes? No problem! Try out a game of Footgolf, the latest golf course rage! Footgolf is a combination of soccer and golf that is fun for all ages and skill levels. Tee off by kicking a soccer ball down a fairway to a special Footgolf cup in as few kicks as possible.
