  • The Ultimate Getaway Bachelor Party

    The Crew takes on Temecula Creek


    When Matt got engaged his thoughts turned immediately to the thing all grooms-to-be look forward to most: The Bachelor Party.  Now, while he knew his fiance wouldn't appreciate him taking off on a week-long surf trip, a weekend golf trip was definitely doable.  After some research his best man found a local gem not too far from home that offered exactly what they were looking for and then some!

    Temecula Creek Inn boasts a 27-Hole championship golf course with more than 300 acres of natural beauty offering elevation changes, mountain views and plenty of sun.  Golf Digest gave the course a Four-Star rating in their "Places to Play".

    Some of the best features include:
    • A full-service driving range with grass and mat tees
    • Oversized putting green
    • Personalized Golf Lessons from our PGA Golf Instructors
    • Full-service Golf Pro Shop
    • Golf Tournament Coordinator to help plan and execute your Group Golf outing or Golf Tournament
    So the golf is great, but what's the last hurrah without a place to party?  The Inn is a place you can getaway with the ball and chain to get some time on the links while she gets pampered at the spa, but the place for the guys is the Creekside Guest House.  There was enough room for some private (ahem) entertainment as well as plenty of amenities to keep everyone happy the rest of the evening.
    We slept a few extra bodies in the house and brought along a motor home for good measure, as we had quite a few more than the 6 people recommended for comfortable sleeping!


      Accommodations Include:
      • Living Room with plasma-screen television, satellite, DVD player and fireplace
      • Game room with billiards, poker table, foosball, darts and plasma-screen television
      • Private Putting Green
      • Outdoor fire pit
      • Back Patio for catered barbecues and receptions
      • Fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances
      • Washer & Dryer
      • Sleeps up to 6 people in three bedrooms/ 2 bathrooms.

      The best part for the guys was the personal putting green with an outdoor light. Using string and some tees to make the holes, they set up a 9-hole course and had a putting competition. If you hit the string it was a one stroke penalty. You can imagine that the amount of alcohol definitely made this one heck of a challenge!  Everyone that played (some of us were in no condition to hold a club, let alone putt) threw in $5 and the winner got the pot.  By the end, there was a two person playoff.  The first player drained a 14 footer which put pressure on the other guy to make it. He barely missed the putt and the winner walked with $70.



       We can definitely recommend this place, in fact, we went back for another bachelor party two years later!
