As the sun begins to poke its nose through the early-morning fog
that blankets the Temecula Creek Inn Golf Course, the verdant beauty
of this 27-hole layout, with its dramatic elevation changes and sweeping
mountain views, begins to reveal itself.
���The fog burns off by about 9 a.m., so it���s not really a problem,��� says
Glen Olson, the GCSAA Class A superintendent charged with overseeing
maintenance of the lush 300-acre property in the heart of Southern
California���s wine country.
The Temecula Valley, which derives its name from an Indian word
meaning ���where the sun shines through the mist,��� has warm, sunny days
and cool nights, providing an ideal climate for the growth of both
premium wine grapes and the sport of year-round golf.
