National Golf Month

August is National Golf month.  To honor National Golf month, golfers are encouraged to share their golf experiences and bring new golfers out to the course.  Golf can be played as a team sport or individual. For August the challenge is to take the time to show someone new to the sport everything they need to know to get started.  Every new golfer needs someone to guide them along the way.

Another way to celebrate Golf Month, if you’re someone who already plays golf, is to get out and play some more golf! Take a moment to stop and celebrate this amazing pastime with whoever you can, your clubs, golf buddies, wife, kids, grandkids, newbies, whoever, just get out and play!

Here are ways you can celebrate the wonderful game of golf.

Play For Something

Put a little wager on your next round to give yourself a little pressure by putting something on the line maybe drinks or dinner.  Paying off your bets have never been easier when you download Tijeras Creek’s mobile app, available for free for Android and Apple devices.  Once you download the app, you can load up with GolfCash at varying denominations. There is no better way to pay at the course.  After loading up for the first time is when the convenience really starts. Tijeras Creek Golf Club accepts GolfCash payments anywhere from the golf shop, for green fees, merchandise, food and beverage, by simply entering the amount owed into the app and pressing pay.

Play 36 Holes

Get out early in the morning, have lunch and get back at it.  You will always remember the day you played 36 holes.

Hit The Range

If you plan on celebrating the whole month of August by playing more golf, try getting to the driving range and work out the kinks!

Teaching Methods For The Junior Golfer in Your House

Have you been trying to get your children into golf and it has turned out to be harder than expected.  The root of the problem could be that unlike nearly every other sport, you can’t just go play golf. Before you can play the game, or even step on a real golf course, you have to learn how to hit the ball, chip, and putt.  Since kids are not exactly into practice, this can make breaking into the sport even more difficult.

Make The Game Easier

Children and beginners simply feel the game of golf is too difficult. The first step would be to make the game easier to learn and play.  Earl Woods would have young Tiger Woods tee off from yardages far shorter than any of the standard boxes. He would then make up a new stroke count for par.  In other words, Tiger might play a 140 yard par 6. The result was that Tiger got used to breaking par from a very young age. Create attainable goals to measure yourself as golf is set up to measure against par. Setting up the course so there is a chance to make par may require you to start from a place other than even the red tees.

Let The Kids Call The Shots

Kids just want to have fun so let them call the shots! Let them explore the game on their own while you follow them around and explain the things they’re curious about. We understand every parent wants their child to learn the game the right way, however, allowing them to get a love for the sport is far more important.

Practice Makes Perfect

Take your child out for practice in the late evening or at a time when it’s not crowded. This will allow your child to hit and chase the ball without having to worry about holding up the group behind you. Tijeras Creek Golf Club offers a Junior Golf Pass that allows your child to play unlimited golf, it’s perfect for the junior golfer in your house. For more information on the Junior Golf Pass click HERE.  They are also now accepting registration for their 2018 Summer Junior Camps.  Sign up your Junior today by clicking HERE.

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.
