The Desert’s Top Ten Public Courses: 2009
 

 

 Desert Willow – Firecliff

 

The desert's most popular and full service course. Their fleet of Club Cars features the awesome DASHVIEW GPS by UPLINK, which makes golfing that much more enjoyable. Firecliff is a top-shelf golf experience and is probably one of the best municipal courses in the country. The clubhouse dining area has magnificent views and great food. If you have the time, play their other course, the Mountain View course, as it too is an exceptional track.

 The Celebrity - The Golf Resort at Indian Wells

 Features 36 holes, par 72, 7,008 yards designed by Clive Clark. This newly opened course is a delight.

Stay and play packages are available in this luxurious facility.

This 18-hole, 6,715 yard par 72 challenge will test the low handicapper, but yet provide an enjoyable and fair test of golf for the average player.

 PGA West TPC Stadium Course

 A collection of 18, #1 handicap holes! The Pete Dye "monster", where low scores are an exception rather than the rule, is probably one of the hardest courses in the country. PGA Q-School uses this course. Be forewarned and bring extra balls. Its famous Alcatraz hole may get the better of you even though it's only 168 yards from the tips! A great place to see how well you can really play golf.

 PGA West - Greg Norman.

 The newly redesigned course is very different from all the other PGA West courses. This is a "desertscapes" design par-72, 7,156-yard course.. There are no palm trees -- the usual standard fare for Coachella Valley golf. There are 122 bunkers that are filled with crushed marble sand that's so brilliant white you might need to buy a pair of PeakVision's sunglasses. Great flow is the hallmark of this layout. Ideal for walking, which is allowed, and caddies are available.

 Marriott Shadow Ridge

 This is one of Nick Faldo's better-designed courses. Opened in 2000, Shadow Ridge is a 7,006 - yard, par-71 layout with design work by Brian Curley and Lee Schmidt. It's hard to go wrong with the stunning backdrop of the sometimes snow-capped Santa Rosa Mountains. The layout is challenging, yet fair. Many of the greens have plenty of subtle undulations that reward and encourage a variety of approach shots. There are great facilities for practicing, dining and accommodations.

 Trilogy

Home of the 2006 LG Skins game, this par 72, 7,175 yards course, designed by Gary Panks, has 18 holes with several sets of tees to accommodate all levels of golfers. Set at the base of the majestic Santa Rosa Mountains, Trilogy has a great clubhouse, excellent service personnel and good food.

 Silverrock

On the rotation in 2008 for the Bob Hope Chrysler classic, this two-year old 18-hole par 72 championship course has some intriguing holes, especially number 17, a downhill par 3 over water a la Cypress Point's famed #16. Playing alongside the mountain range is both awesome yet risky, as some of the holes are rather tight. Several tees also make this golf course user friendly for the higher handicapper.
