Sycuan Resort

Today, when you look down into the Dehesa Valley from the top of “Allen’s Grade” where Cecil Hollingsworth first saw it in 1955 you see an enchanting panorama—massive green expanse, dramatically set off by enormous trees, striking rock formations and rocky, brush covered hills. These are the “Singing Hills” that thousands and thousands of golfers have seen as they have traveled the three courses that fan out across the valley.

Cecil knew he and his partners had to have this property which they would transform into a golf resort. Today Oak Glen, Pine Glen and Willow Glen comprise one of the largest and most successful golfing facilities west of the Mississippi. Cecil’s partners were Gomer Sims, Babe Horrell and Robert Price who also operated a golf facility two hours away in Los Angeles (Alondra Park). This was the foursome that bought the 700-acre Singing Hills Ranch in March 1955.

Construction began and on January 26, 1956 the “East” course (Oak Glen) was opened followed in October by the “West” course, an executive layout (Pine Glen). Six years later the song of earth moving equipment was heard once again. It was the start of Willow Glen: the third course Cecil was to design.

In the winter of 1979-80 the golf courses which are seated in a river valley were washed away by 200 foot wide flood waters. An astonishing, 40 acres of land were completely lost and the old pro shop was washed away into the river. Amazingly, you’d never know there had been a flood as the courses (and a new Resort Golf Shop) were completely remodeled and rebuilt with the help of architect Ted Robinson and Superintendent Dave Fleming.

There are but a few resort settings which offer such unspoiled natural beauty and diverse wildlife including ducks, woodpeckers, red tail hawks and Great Blue Herons. This incredible inland valley offers unequalled peace and quiet. Even though we’re just outside of San Diego it feels as if you are way out in the country. Seldom has there been a facility with a more loving history than is found here, all because of the families that made it possible. Jerry Hollingsworth and Steve Horrell carried on the dream and vision of their fathers along with the club’s generations of fun loving Members and thousands of dedicated employees.

One of those employees, Tom Addis III became President of the PGA of America. This is the highest position attainable by any club professional in the United States. Actually, Tom used to live in the large two story original ranch house which is still here today. The house was built in 1875.

Now named Sycuan Golf Resort, the property was purchased and is currently owned by the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation. From Tribal Chairman Daniel Tucker on down The Tribe are prideful owners. Sycuan has done more than just carry on the traditions of the families that brought lodging, golf and tennis here. Their commitment to excellence has done nothing but make this wonderful place just that much better. Play classic solitaire.
