Indian Wells Golf Resort is a 36 hole facility in the Palm Spring area.
Originally constructed in the 1980’s with two Ted Robinson courses, the facility was completely overhauled and in 2007 the Celebrity course designed by Clive Clark opened.
A year later John Fought designed The Players Course was also completed.
Both are proving a success with both locals and visitors
The Players Course was designed by John Fought and is quite different to the Celebrity Course.
The course occupies more land, is longer and wider, and features classic bunkering reminiscent of the Melbourne Sandbelt.
There are large expanses of exposed sand, and desert grasses- The Players Course has a vastly different feel to it’s sister course!
According to the locals the better players prefer this course, although more visitors play The Celebrity Course...
Perhaps you should play both?
Notable holes include:
hole 6- a long par 4 arcing around a water hazard the entire length of the hole
hole 16- a beautifully bunkered par 4
hole 17- a picturesque par 3 guarded by water
hole 18- a strong par 5 with a green protected by wetlands and impressive bunkering
