The Colony is found in the Inland Empire, ideally set within an hour of the ocean, towering mountains, scenic lakes, and the desert.

Set in the heart of Southern California in the city of Murrieta, The Colony is a well-planed, age-restricted community which boasts many resort-style amenities including the 18-hole California Oaks Golf Club. While this country club community is great for golfers, there are plenty of activities for those who don’t hit the links as well. The community’s 16-year construction period has also resulted in a diverse collection of homes which are sure to meet the needs of many different homebuyers.


The Colony is located near the wine country of Temecula Valley, just one hour from the ocean. This prime location offers residents easy access to beaches, majestic mountains, scenic lakes, and arid deserts. Outdoor enthusiasts can hike the San Gorgonio Mountains or drive to the nearby Diamond Lake Reservoir for boating, fishing or picnicking by the lake. The Colony is also within 70 miles of California hot spots like Palm Springs, San Diego, and Orange County.


Resident golfers will love having easy access to the community’s 18-hole California Oaks Golf Course. It is a beautiful and challenging par 70 course which stretches 5,218 yards from its championship tees. In addition to playing the course, residents can visit the pro shop or arrange lessons which will take their game to the next level. After a game, players can stop at the Oaks Bar and Grill for lunch or happy hour as well.


Beyond golf, The Colony’s spacious clubhouse boasts plenty of amenities to support an active adult lifestyle. Some of the resort-style features include a well-equipped exercise room, hobby and craft studios, a library, billiards and card rooms, and a beauty salon. Various meeting rooms and lounges offer plenty of space to socialize with friends or relax with a good book. There is also a grand ballroom and theater, which is an ideal location for many different community events.

The grounds surrounding the clubhouse feature even more amenities. There are a beautiful patio and a covered picnic pavilion. The outdoor swimming pool and spa area also include space to visit with friends or soak up the California sunshine. Sports courts let residents stay in shape with games like tennis, pickleball, and shuffleboard while walking paths provide a safe place for a morning jog or evening stroll.


Homes at The Colony were built between 1989 and 2005 by three builders: Ryland Homes, Mastercraft, and Crowell & David. This extended construction period and a combination of builders has led to a diverse mix of single-family homes. With both one- and two-story homes which range in size from 1,071 to 2,161 square feet, today’s homebuyers will find many different homes in this one great community.

Active adults looking for a country club setting in Southern California may find the community of their dreams in The Colony. With a variety of amenities, a challenging golf course, and beautiful homes, this lovely development has what it takes to support a healthy active adult lifestyle.
