Mission Hills Country Club

Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 1972

The private Mission Hills Country Club (as distinct from the adjacent Westin Mission Hills Resort) is home to three championship golf courses, separately designed by Pete Dye, Arnold Palmer and Desmond Muirhead.

The Muirhead layout, called the Dinah Shore Tournament course is home to one of the Women's Majors, the Kraft Nabisco Championship, formerly known as the Nabisco Dinah Shore. The course is rated one of the best in the Coachella Valley, and culminates in the 646-yard par-5 18th, with an island green sitting right in front of the clubhouse.

The Arnold Palmer course measures 6,834 yards from the tips and is a Mission Hills Country Club member favourite. The Pete Dye Challenge weighs in at 6,955 yards from the back tees, the design incorporating big waste areas and bunkers large enough to make this Rancho Mirage golf course a real test of skill.

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.
