What better way is there to spend your vacation than golfing in some of the most relaxing places in America? Welk Resorts is here to give you that opportunity! This resort developer has two amazing properties that boast exciting golf courses perfect for travelers looking to tee off in style. Plus, these resorts come with tons of luxurious amenities and comfortable accommodations to ensure your stay is enjoyable both on and off the golf course. Here’s everything you need to know about Welk Resorts Desert Oasis in Palm Springs and Villas on the Green in San Diego.

Welk Resorts Desert Oasis in Palm Springs

One of two Welk Resort golf destinations is found in Palm Springs. The Welk Resorts Desert Oasis offers vacationers comfortable one-bedroom villas that give 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. And 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.

Cathedral Canyon Golf and Tennis Club at Desert Oasis

You’d be hard pressed 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 Cathedral Canyon Golf Course provide a breathtaking backdrop around all 18 holes. In fact, the unique desert golf course layout takes advantage of the naturally rolling terrain and elevation changes that come with being so close to the mountains. You’ll find that this resort has challenging holes as well as easier ones so golfers of all skill levels can have fun. Plus, there are plenty of strategically placed bunkers as well as 16 lakes. With perfect, sunny weather year-round, there is no bad time to visit.

Cathedral Canyon Golf Club’s course has also undergone extensive renovations and was voted one of the top 25 most improved US courses in 2016 on Golf Advisor. Just one drive along the golf greens in a trusty, on-site golf cart will make it clear that the course is in excellent shape. 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 at this Welk Resorts golf course, the newly renovated Clubhouse and the Canyon Grille will fill your empty stomach.

Welk Resort San Diego

In the rolling hills of Escondido, California, you’ll find Welk Resort San Diego. This resort features not one, but two amazing golf courses. First is the Oaks, a par-three course lined with its namesake trees. The Oaks even offers rounds of “footgolf,” a soccer and golf hybrid that has become all the rage. Then there’s the Fountains, a 450-acre executive course. This great executive course is challenging, but not too difficult, making it perfect for all kinds of golfers. In addition to the two courses are a complete golf shop, golf tournament services, and a full-service banquet facility. You’ll have everything you need to know to hit the golf carts for some outdoor fun.

Welk Resort San Diego offers a huge variety of accommodations from mountain villas, villas on the green, as well as resort villas. Mountain Villas offers guests a choice between one, two, and three-bedroom villas with fully equipped kitchens, luxurious granite countertops, and stone floors.

Welk Villas on the Green

Next, Welk Villas on the Green offers guests a more casual experience without skimping out on comfort. Villas On The Greens By Welk Resorts features smaller one-bedroom units for smaller groups. Resort villas, on the other hand, offer the ultimate luxury in a spacious two-bedroom villa with a private balcony overlooking the hills. You’ll also find six tennis courts, four recreation centers, outdoor pools, fitness centers, spa tubs, and lounges. In fact, there’s even an on-site spa for guests to unwind in.

The Welk Resorts San Diego property is just under an hour away from San Diego’s most popular attractions like the San Diego Zoo, Legoland California, and SeaWorld San Diego. 

Welk Resorts San Diego Golf

Being home to two golf courses, Welk Resort San Diego was named one of the “Best Places to Play” by GOLF DIGEST. 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!

If you’d like to try something new, the resort also offers fling golf. This less-known but fun sport combines skills from golf with those from lacrosse, baseball, and hockey to make something completely new. The courses at this resort offer plenty of fun for golfers of all skill levels. So whether you prefer challenging play at executive courses or a short game that’s a bit easier, it’s safe to say you’ll find plenty of excitement at Welk Resort San Diego
