La Paloma Country Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1984

La Paloma Country Club, open to its members and to guests staying at the Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa, is home to a 27-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature design. With holes laid out on either side of East Sunrise Drive, this desert-style course is routed through the La Paloma residential development.

Although residences are much in evidence, to a large extent they blend in with the area's natural desert habitat. The design contains many attractive desert features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course.
