Where2Golf says: 

Classic Club: The Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, the PGA Tour's flagship event in the Coachella Valley, is now benefiting from two sensational new Arnold Palmer designed courses. In addition to the sleek and elegant new layout at SilverRock, Palmer has also designed the wonderfully dramatic Classic Club course, host to the final day of the Bob Hope.

This is a big-dimension, challenging, championship layout with world-class credentials. The usually ample fairways, laid out on nicely undulating, open desert terrain, are defended with plenty of large, stylish bunkers. On both the front and back-nines, good-size lakes also pose a dangerous threat alongside some fairways and around several greens. Surrounded in the main by ruggedly handsome desert, and offering fabulous views onto all the valley's spectacular mountain ranges, the course is a visual delight. Here and there some recently planted pines and pepperwood trees have yet to fully mature, but that doesn't take anything away from the many stunning golf holes. The 6th, played over a wide chasm, is a wonderfully created and testing long par-3. At the 12th, another excellent par-3, a multi-tiered waterfall cascades down alongside the green.

The Classic Club has already established itself as a must play venue for visiting golfers. Its expansive, spectacular design and superb clubhouse facilities deliver everything you would expect from one of Palm Desert's elite - although something you will not find here are palm trees !

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.
