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, originally called the Old Course, and now the Dinah Shore Tournament course, is home to one of the women's major championships, the ANA Inspiration (formerly known as the Kraft Nabisco Championship, and before that 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 (originally called the Dinah Shore course, until that title was moved to the Tournament course) weighs in at 6,955 yards from the back tees. The design incorporates big waste areas and bunkers large enough to make this Rancho Mirage golf course a real test of skill.
