Information about the Venue

The native history of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians is deeply implanted in every fertile yard of Journey at Pechanga.

The cultural heritage and connection to the land runs deep and is virtually inseparable.

The very name “Pechanga” means “place where the water drips,” a fitting description so in keeping with the beautiful and natural water features that abount on this magnificent course.

KoreAm Journal was founded in 1990 by James Ryu and his father, Jung Shig Ryu, to create a voice for the Korean American community, and grew over the years to extend the voice for all Asian Americans in the United States. With a dedicated crew of writers, editors and photographers who explored all facets of news and culture, from politics and sports to food and entertainment, KoreAm Journal brought to light fascinating individuals and issues that were changing the cultural landscape for Asian Americans. In the process, KoreAm became the oldest and most widely circulated English-language Asian American publication, all the while winning numerous journalism awards over its 25 years of existence. 

Our reach expanded in 2003 when KoreAm launched a sister publication, Audrey Magazine, dedicated to stories focusing on notable and influential women. These two publications highlighted the diverse experiences of Asian Americans, and by embracing all generations, KoreAm and Audrey were the hub of the Asian American community for many years.

As media continues to rapidly shift more and more to a digital and mobile-focused world, KoreAm and Audrey will take their legacy into the launch of a new website: Kore. With the invaluable support of parent company London Trust Media, this exciting new venture will continue to focus on issues and stories impacting the Asian American community, but with the advantages afforded by the powers of digital creation, Kore will expand its reach even that much greater though out the nation and the world.

With events such as the annual pro-am golf tournament and the Unforgettable gala, Kore will continue to be a visible and impactful presence in the community. Thank you for taking this new journey with us!
