Welk Resorts has always had the goal of providing exceptional hospitality to all guests. That includes golfers, too! Today, two Welk resorts feature exciting golf courses perfect for vacationers looking to tee off in style.
Let’s take a look at the golfing options available to Welk owners.
Enjoy Desert Golfing at Welk Resort Palm Springs
It will be hard to find a more scenic golf course in southern California. The Welk Resorts Desert Oasis in Cathedral City is the prime spot for tee time. The San Jacinto mountains which surround the golf course provide a breathtaking backdrop for golfers. With perfect, sunny weather year-round, there is no bad time to visit.
Cathedral Canyon Golf Club’s course has recently undergone extensive renovations and was voted one of the top 25 most improved US courses in 2016 on Golf Advisor. The Lawrence Welk Desert Oasis Golf Course features a practice green and bunker, complete with a golf shop, golf classes and tournament services.
After a day out on the green, the newly renovated Clubhouse and the Canyon Grill and fill your empty stomach. With a full bar and cafe, the Canyon Grill features a delicious menu.
Welk’s Palm Springs resort offers vacationers comfortable one-bedroom villas that offer families and couples all the amenities they are looking for. Families will appreciate the fully-equipped kitchens, allowing them to cater to picky palates without the hassle. Couples can enjoy the fine furnishings and privacy of having a one-bedroom condo-style unit.
There is also a resort-style pool for when the kids are itching to go swimming and splash around. Quench your thirst at the Palm Terrace Cafe which has cold beverages and quick bites to eat. Adults can also go to the adults-only lap pool and relax with some quiet time.
Nearby, vacationers can visit the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway which hovers one and a half-miles over the Chino Canyon, rotating so that you can get a 360-degree view. The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens is also worthy of a day trip. If history is more up your alley, make sure to visit the Palm Springs Air Museum.
Tee Off at the Welk Resort San Diego
Just outside San Diego in the rolling hills of Escondido, California, you’ll find an excellent Welk resort with not one, but two amazing golf courses. These are the Oaks and the Fountains Golf Courses. The Oaks even offers rounds of “footgolf,” a soccer and golf hybrid that has become all the rage. In addition to the two courses are a complete golf shop, golf tournament services and a full-service banquet facility.
For beginners, the Play With A Pro lessons offers a 9-hole class with a PGA Professional. You’ll get tips, drills and strategies to play like a pro golfer. There are other events on the course throughout the year like Patriots on the Green Fundraising Day, Wine & Wedges Clinic, Whiskey & Wedges Clinic, Golf Brewfest and more!
Welk Resorts San Diego offers a huge variety of accommodations from mountain villas, villas on the green and resort villas. Mountain Villas offer guests a choice between one, two and three bedroom villas with fully equipped kitchens, luxurious granite countertops and stone floors. The Villas on the Green options offers guests a more casual experience without skimping out of comfort. These are available in one bedroom units, only. Resort villas, on the other hand, offer the ultimate luxury in a spacious two bedroom villa with a private balcony overlooking the hills.
The Welk San Diego resort is just under an hour away from San Diego’s most popular attractions like the San Diego Zoo, Legoland California and SeaWorld San Diego.
