Tom Horaney Named General Manager of Tijeras Creek Golf Club

Longtime asst. general manager adds ‘personal’ touch to one of Southern California’s best golf clubs

Tijeras Creek Golf Club is a throwback in one unique way – it puts the “person” back into the club’s “personality.” And everyone on property – including the newly appointed General Manager, Tom Horaney – contributes to this all-but forgotten concept.

Customer Service Leads the Way at Tijeras Creek Golf Club

Great customer service at Tijeras Creek Golf Club begins with the staff, which in several cases, has been with the club for decades running everything from tournaments and weddings to regular play. This provides the type of personalized service and friendship that used to be the hallmark of the game. Everybody knew the pro, and they leaned on him as the golf expert always at the ready for anything from a lesson to a quick update on the tour action that weekend.

Same goes for the barkeep. The traditional post-round whiskey is as old as the game itself, and the pal behind the bar did much more than pour the drink (neat, of course). He helped golfers commemorate good rounds or commiserate when things didn’t go well – as they often do. TJ’s Cantina feels like that type of place.

Tom Horaney Keeps the Tradition Alive

It is this genuine feel that lies at the heart of Tijeras Creek Golf Club’s appeal. Horaney’s appointment to General Manager is a great example.

“I’m humbled and honored to receive this promotion to General Manager at such an esteemed Southern California golf club,” said Horaney. “Our loyal guests are second to none, our experienced staff is the best in the business, and we are set to take Tijeras Creek to another level.”

Since 2007, Horaney has served as Assistant General Manager, as well as Food & Beverage Manager at Tijeras Creek. Under his watch, the club has increased food and beverage revenue by more than 40 percent, thanks in part to recent clubhouse and cantina renovations. And not only is TJ’s Cantina hopping, total rounds have increased steadily during his tenure.

Approval from the Top

“With his invaluable experience in the many facets of the operation at Tijeras Creek during the last 10 years, Tom was the natural choice to lead the club into the future,” said Phil Green, COO of OB Sports, the management firm for Tijeras Creek Golf Club. “The golf club, and its fantastic cardholders, are in great hands with Tom leading the charge.”

Creating Celebrations That Become Treasured Memories

Top Reasons Why You Should Get Married at a Golf Course.

Last year, 6 of the 10 most popular dates to get engaged landed in December, according to a report from  The Holidays are vastly approaching and this is a time of year when you spend quality time with family, making it a very popular season to get engaged. All the family is already together to witness the proposal, the ring, and celebrate!


As a couple in love getting engaged is one of the most exciting times of your life and having all your family and friends there to celebrate makes the occasion even that much more special. But once the celebrations are over it’s time to start planning.  With December being a popular month to get engaged and the average length of engagement is 14.5 months, seems like enough time to plan. However, not all engagements are that long, some are short. This means with the large number of couples getting engaged the competition to find the best venue can be stressful and often times over your budget.


The first step in the planning process is the vision you see for that special day. For most brides, the first step was completed years ago as a young child before she ever even met her groom. Picture your wedding ceremony with a Spanish motif, romantic fountain terrace with breathtaking panoramic views of the golf course.  Tijeras Creek is the best kept secret in Orange County.  


You couldn’t ask for a more exquisite background than the scenic views offered from Tijeras Creek Golf Course.  Golf is taken very seriously around here, and we expect great views from every hole. As a result, your wedding photographer will be inspired by the numerous opportunities  for setting up great, memorable shots. Fun, silly photos with the groomsmen on the course, beautiful and romantic shots of the bride and groom and a complete wedding party picture with the beautiful green grass and bright blue sky as your backdrop.


Our facility accommodates groups up to 120 with a variety of buffet packages to choose from. You will have a dedicated Special Events Coordinator that will help with the planning of your bridal shower, afternoon tea, rehearsal dinner and reception or farewell champagne brunch. Additional services such as photography and professional video production, floral creation, hotel and resort accommodations and off-site activities are available. Having a in-house chef removes the worry of wondering if the caterer will be on time and not forget anything.  Let us assist you in designing a truly personal experience.
