Golf Overview

From the moment you turn onto the scenic flower-lined drive where pink flamingos roam freely leading up to the resort, you get a taste of the pristine beauty, breathtaking views and relaxed atmosphere that await on the resort's two iconic 18-hole championship golf courses.

Spectacular water features, emerald green fairways, towering palm trees, and majestic views of the Santa Rosa Mountains greet visitors upon arrival – and offer a glimpse of the beauty and challenge that await.

Every aspect of a golfer's trip has been carefully taken into consideration to ensure the ultimate golf experience with a wide array of services and amenities.

Some of the highlights include:

  • Two beautiful and challenging golf courses with four sets of tees suited to any level of play

Designed by legendary architect Ted Robinson Sr., the Palm and Valley courses feature 35 acres of sparkling streams, lakes and cascading waterfalls, along with pot bunkers and large, sweeping sand traps, as well as one of the most picturesque settings in the Coachella Valley.

  • Double-sided practice facility

An expansive driving range with tee lines adorning both ends and two practice putting greens are available for golfers to warm up before their round or to work on their game after.

  • Fully stocked golf shop

Everything you could ever need for your day on the course is available, including stylish men's and women's apparel, top-of-the-line TaylorMade equipment, shoes, bags, balls and all other necessities are in stock – as well as an ample selection of logoed keepsakes.

  • Miniaturized putting course

In addition to our two championship golf courses, the resort is home to the nation's first 18-hole all-natural turf putting course, complete with contoured fairways, sand traps, lakes, streams and waterfalls.

  • Multiple dining options

Whether it's a sandwich and beverage on the golf course, breakfast or lunch at the turn, a poolside meal, or a sit-down lunch or dinner at Fisherman’s Landing Bar & Grill, guests have an array of options to choose from.

  • Professional instruction

A host of PGA golf professionals are on hand to help you tune up your game or provide a series of individual or group lessons.

  • Golf cart GPS system

All golf carts have been equipped with brand new, state-of-the art GPS systems that offer accurate yardages and graphics to assist you throughout your round.

  • Equipment rentals

If you accidentally left a club at home or just don't want to travel with your golf clubs, there's no need to worry as a full line of TaylorMade golf equipment is available for rental, as are golf shoes.

  • Club storage

Golfers can conveniently store their clubs at the golf course so they're available and ready to go at tee time.
