The Golf Guide to the Top Courses
Where2Golf says: 

Sycuan Resort (Willow Glen course): Formerly known as Singing Hills Country Club, the extensive golf facilities at Sycuan Resort include the Oak Glen and Willow Glen championship courses. Although not the longest or most dramatic in the San Diego area, both these relatively easy-going and well-maintained layouts are very popular with local and visiting golfers alike. The Willow Glen course is an out-and-back layout, mainly played away from the clubhouse behind a small range of hills. Nestling down in the glen (Scottish for narrow valley), boulder-clad hills and a limited amount of real estate flank the course on either side. Within its pleasantly natural, parkland setting, the course is home to a liberal scattering of oak, pine, eucalyptus and plane trees, which give good definition to the often tightish fairways. The excellent par-4 4th and par-4 14th and 15th holes incorporate the only real elevation changes on an otherwise relatively flat and uncontoured layout. The Sweetwater River and three or four small ponds ensure that water hazards pose a threat on several occasions, not least at the par-3 12th, the best hole on the course. This very attractive short hole (186 yards from the back tees) has water from tee-to-green and a picturesque waterfall adorns the rightside of the putting surface. With on-site accommodations and a casino close at hand, Sycuan is an excellent stay and play location, and a great springboard from which to discover some of San Diego's more demanding golf tracks.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.
