Warner Springs Ranch Resort, LLC Reopens Upgraded Clubhouse, Restaurant

November 10, 2015 (Warner Springs) – The Warner Springs Ranch Golf Club is ready for play after a two-year renovation undertaken after the property was bought in 2013 by Pacific Hospitality Group Inc.

The course, managed by Corporate Director of Golf Byron Casper, International PGA, and Warner Springs Ranch Golf Club Director of Golf Roxanne Mueller, PGA, is a 6,775-yard, 18-hole, par-72 championship, surrounded by 60-year-old oak trees, natural vegetation and sweeping views of the area mountain ranges. Improvements and updates to the course include a sustainability program, new dogleg and lake in the third hole, new cart paths, additional sand traps, improved drainage systems, a new practice facility and the planting of 200 native trees, as well as shrubs to complement the golf course layout.

The course opened with a ribbon cutting officiated by San Diego County Supervisor Bill Horn and multiple other local officials, along with a sold-out inaugural Charity Golf Tournament benefiting several local Warner Springs charities.

“Golfers will enjoy a 3,000-foot elevated golf course, surrounded by the abundant flora and fauna of Warner Springs Valley,” said WSRR Managing Member William H. McWethy, Jr. “We remodeled the golf clubhouse and restaurant, and added new amenities including a bar, two-way fireplace and outdoor seating.”

The original 18 holes were designed by golf course architect David A. Rainville, ASGCA, and the course has hosted many high-visibility tournaments, including the U.S. Golf Association’s qualifying rounds for the U.S. Amateur Championship.

The Warner Springs Ranch Grill is open Thursday through Monday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Tuesday and Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The restaurant offers American and Mexican fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner, including Saint Louis BBQ ribs, chicken and steak fajitas, and a range of salads and soups.

Warner Springs Ranch Resort will offer golf club memberships and is open to the general public for play. Green fees range from $45 to $65. Additional offerings will include resort golf packages, tournaments, and a series of teaching seminars and hands-on lessons.

Since acquiring the historic property in spring 2013, Warner Springs Ranch Resort, LLC has been planning and working to rejuvenate the much beloved resort. Over the next two years, WSRR expects to reopen the world famous hot springs pool complex and portions of the resort.
