La Quinta Resort- Mountain Course

La Quinta Resort dates from 1926, but it took until 1981 when Pete Dye completed the Mountain & Dunes courses for La Quinta to really become a feature on the golfing map

The Mountain Course displays many of the characteristics of other Pete Dye designs, with railroad sleepers, elevated greens, and a course that challenges all players.

 

The background of mountains and blue sky, with gorgeous Palm Springs weather is a great head start for any course- particularly one as well conditioned at the Mountain course. 

There are some quieter holes and some memorable holes, but overall this is the ideal course to open a Palm Springs golfing holiday

La Quinta Resort is an outstanding place to stay, with access to an enviable array of top line courses. 

All players will want to play the famous PGA West Stadium course at least once during their stay, and the Norman Course and The Nicklaus Tournament courses at PGA West are also must plays- but if you have time for 5 courses I recommend you pencil in the The Mountain Course as well.

It's a nice warm up for the Stadium course- and they do share that Pete Dye DNA, after all..
