Two challenging golf courses

Both courses are among my favorites in the area. Beautifully maintained, very challenging. The bunkers on the Players course have just been refurbished. They are very challenging.

We are in town for several weeks and have already played six local golf courses. Everything about the golf experience here is outstanding. When we drove up to their enormous clubhouse, we were met by the golf cart guy and the parking valet. You will receive friendly greetings from several employees as you enter the pro shop. I asked if... More

This is the second time we've visited the Indian Wells Golf Club on a vacation to Palm Springs and nothing has changed! It is every bit as wonderful as it was the first time! Great service and still the most beautiful courses I've ever seen. Still had ice machines and water every three holes and they still give you mango... More

We came from San Diego for the weekend, decided to play this course, beautiful and challenge, I really recommend playing it. A bad point for the security guy at the main gate on the celebrities golf course, he was rude, we didn't know that wasn't the correct golf course, and instead of helping he just sent us outside to wait...

Played the celebrity course today, only back nine as it was super hot. The course is in great shape very well maintained and picturesque. But the service today is what made my day. I didn't plan on golfing this trip, but everyone in the pro shop was so helpful getting me together that I was able to go out and... More

Played here on Saturday morning for my cousins birthday. What a great course, in great condition. Friendly golf staff and nice clubhouse. The upstairs Bar has a great view of the course. This is the second time I've played here and won't be the last! Can't wait to come back.

Really loved this course. Good length and fair tees for women. Beautiful flowers (yes!), rock waterfalls and picturesque bridges. Pro shop is huge but it closes at 6:00. This course is as close as you'll get to a private club. Water and ice conveniently located as are bathrooms. Also played JW Marriott courses, Willow Desert ( not a fav .... More

Indian Wells Golf Resort is home to two of the very best public courses in the area. These courses feature outstanding conditions, interesting designs and wonderful service. Unlike many of the other valley courses, Indian Wells has a surprising amount of elevation changes and even more amazing is the fact that the courses look and feel more like a tree... More

As ClubCorps members and winter residents in Palm Desert we were fortunate to play both the Cove and the Classic course at Indian Well CC on multiple occasions this winter. This was by far our favorite club in the ClubCorps system. Partially because of the historic significance of the club, and the quality of the facilities. But the courtesy and... More

We come to Rancho Mirage annually and make it a point to play Indian Wells. As Club Corp signature gold unlimited members, we are able to book tee times 30 days in advance giving us lots of options as to course (both the Cove and Classic courses are excellent) and time of play. Pro shop and clubhouse facilities (locker rooms,dining... More
