Classic Club

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 2005

Classic Club: During the mid-2000s, the PGA Tour's flagship event in the Coachella Valley (at times known as the Desert Classic and Bob Hope Chrysler Classic) benefitted from the addition of two sensational new Arnold Palmer designed courses. In addition to the sleek and elegant SilverRock layout, Palmer has also designed the wonderfully dramatic Classic Club course.

The big-dimension, challenging, championship layout at Classic Club boasts ample fairways, laid out on undulating desert terrain. On both front and back-nines, plenty of large, stylish bunkers and good-size lakes pose a dangerous threat alongside the fairways and around the 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 pines and pepperwood trees have been planted to complement the desert palette.

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.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
