Visiting Hemet in February

What would you recommend is the best way to travel to Hemet from Palm Springs Airport? Is it too cold to golf in February? What are some affordable golf courses and what are the courses that must be golfed?

Hemet is kind of in the middle of nowhere. The fastest way to Hemet from PSP is to go north from the airport on Gene Autry to I-10 and then west on 10 to Beaumont. Take the 79 south from Beaumont to Hemet. It is probably about 40 miles.

I don't gold but there are several golf courses that can be seen from the freeway near Beaumont. Golf courses in Hemet and Beaumont will almost certainly be cheaper than those in Palm Springs. The temperatures in February will probably be in the 60s during the day and 40s at night. It can rain at that time of year though.

I work at Soboba Casino, just down from Soboba Springs Golf course. It looks pretty nestled up against the San Jacinto Mountains. The course looks like it is in Chamber of Commerce shape this time of year. Lots of water hazards. I used to golf but gave up due to other stresses in my life. I hope you can play the Soboba Springs course. It is off CA 79 to Gilman Springs Road to Soboba Road.

Good luck.

Depending on how far into Hemet you are-

just before you were to exit the I -10 freeway in Beaumont for the 79 and thus travel south into the Hemet/SanJacinto valley...

If instead you remained on interstate 10 and continued West (past the split off of hwy 60 west)- within less than 5 miles is Oak Valley Golf which is two or three exits down from hwy 79 exit - it is easily visible from freeway (Driving range that is- ) and exit is I do believe Oak Valley Pkwy. Now one mile further west on the opposite side of freeway is a PGA course- the green is visible when eastbound

I am not sure what the name of it is (PGA West?) but it should be listed in Beaumont as the next town Calimesa is too far away.

I do not know how to access the clubhouse via road but both of these courses look trim- excellent fairways. Have only hit the range at Oak Valley- nicest range I have hit at, haven't had 4 hrs to play when out that way. I honestly can't believe such nice courses were stuck out there but sure enough the houses followed adn the areas have filled in. Hemet/ San Jacinto have other courses within their valley as well. Have heard nice things about a newer course on East end of Hemet near foot of mountains.

Hemet will be full of snowbirds in Feb.- unless its raining should expect 70s, maybe even down in the high 50s if its really cold,

which it is usually not. Havent played Hemet area (took up golf after leaving)- Soboba Golf may be memebers only- old private course.

There is a long 9 holer at north End of San Jacinto Avenue- cant remember its name- but was in San Jacinto (which is north side of Valley,hemet is south side and these days they meld in middle)North of Mt San Jacinto College- holes were looong, lots of mature trees, very flat. Gilman springs road runs along it in fact its practically at intersection of San Jacinto and Gilman springs.

Very nice courses south of Hemet if you are willing to drive into Murrieta Hot Springs. Some beautiful courses no doubt perched on sides of hills but havent price- just drive by and sigh- can't drive an hour to play when I lke courses within 20 mins of house.

It certainly is not too cold in February to golf. We live in Sacramento and travel each winter (to get out of Sacramento's fog) to Hemet where we spend the month of February and play golf.

If you are a low handicap golfer you will want to play Diamond Valley, (951) 767-0828 cost $32 with cart. Slope 128 for both men and women

Another couse near Hemet is Quail Ranch, (951) 654-2727. Cost $25 with cart Monday - Thursday. Slope 128 for men, 124 for women.

There is also the brand new Hemet Landmark, slope 129 for men, 122 for women. $35 with cart before noon.
