La Quinta Resort & Club
Few places on earth capture your spirit like La Quinta Resort & Club. An original desert hideaway at the foot of the spectacular Santa Rosa Mountains, La Quinta Resort & Club has been the personal refuge for Hollywood luminaries and world travelers [and their pets] since 1926. While you could easily spend a week lounging in the sun beside one of 41 pools that sit just steps from your guestroom door, the lush 45-acre resort offers so much more. This golf resort in Palm Springs invites you to challenge golf’s legends on five championship courses, indulge in a rejuvenating afternoon at Spa La Quinta, savour creations of top chefs in one of seven restaurants, shop, play tennis, or simply relish the luxury of doing nothing at all.
The resort has 620 guestrooms and 98 villas situated in charming whitewashed Spanish-style casitas with views of the gardens or mountains. A recent resort-wide renovation included upgrades of all guest casitas and a re-imagined pool experience. New amenities include 42- to 47-inch flat-screen high-definition televisions, mini refrigerators, Keurig® coffee makers, charging stations with dual USB ports, upgraded fireplaces and photography inspired by the storied history of the resort and its surroundings.
Resort Casitas :
The Resort Casitas range from 400 to 460 square feet and feature private terraces and pools. There are four subcategories of casitas: Resort Casitas, Deluxe Casitas, Starlight Casitas, and Hideaway Casitas.
Villa Suites :
The Villa Suites range from 1,200 to 1,600 square feet and offer either one, two, or three-bedrooms. The nine suite sub-categories include: Arzner Suite, Capra Suite, Executive Suite, Eisenhower Suite, Hideaway Suite, Hacienda Suite, El Presidente Suite, Pueblo Suite and Spa Villas Suites. Each feature resort-style living with a fully functional kitchen, striking indoor and outdoor dining areas, and the bedroom connects to a spacious bathroom with large Roman tub and separate shower. These suites also showcase private spas; and five luxury suites include both a private pool and spa– among them the lavish 2,000 square-foot Hacienda Grande with its own carport. Also available is the iconic 1,200-square-foot Eisenhower Suite that Ike himself frequented on a regular basis. Another highlight is the Arzner Suite, named after Hollywood’s first female film director, Dorothy Arzner.
TPC Stadium Course
Walk in the footsteps of legends. Designed for golf’s biggest stage, The TPC Stadium Course—home of the CareerBuilder Challenge—is where legends have made history. This par-72 Pete Dye-designed jewel is a “must play” for those seeking the ultimate golf challenge. A favorite among touring professionals, and ranked among the best by Golf Magazine, Golf Digest, and Golfweek, Pete Dye crafted one of the most challenging tracks you can play; creating 18 individual masterpieces, each with a character and identity all its own. The infamous 17th tee, known as “Alcatraz” was inspired by the 17th island green at TPC Sawgrass, and has been named one of the best Par 3 holes in Southern California by the Southern California Golf Association’s FORE Magazine. TPC Stadium derives its mystique from unique undulations, cavernous bunkers and peninsula and island par 3s. Tournament highlights include the Skins Game, Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf and the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic.
La Quinta Resort Mountain Course
Soaring Peaks and Challenging Play Elevate the Palm Springs Golf Experience. Famed for its unique Pete Dye design, playability and stunning visuals, this ultra-challenging course nestled at the base of the Santa Rosa Mountains features pot bunkers and rock formations, as well as incredible elevations of tee boxes and well-bunkered greens. Ascending to the top of the elevated tee box of the signature 16th enables you to fully appreciate the majesty of this course, named one of Golf Magazine’s Top 100 You Can Play.
Jack Nicklaus Tournament Course at PGA West
One of Palm Springs’ best designs from a legend of the game.
The same forceful presence the Golden Bear brought to his game is evident in his challenging desert layout. Long hitters will appreciate the opportunity for power off the tee with room for forgiveness, while elevated greens require you to literally raise your short game to another level. The intensity and demand of this Jack Nicklaus design is tempered by dramatic beauty and excitement of playing one of the most highly regarded courses in the Palm Springs area.
Greg Norman Course at PGA West
Palm Springs desert golf from the Down Under perspective. It’s only fitting that the Shark’s contribution to the Palm Springs golf experience should be carved from the floor of an ancient ocean. Greg Norman captured the essence of desert golf with an “Outback” flair in this challenging but fair design that features an abundance of sand, sage, colourful pockets of wildflowers, nine lakes and spectacular panoramic vistas, unmatched anywhere in the Coachella Valley. This Norman gem recently became Audubon Certified.
La Quinta Resort Dunes Course
This par-72 Pete Dye-designed course offers traditional rolling links-style golf with Scottish and Irish flair, characterized by rolling mounds framing manicured fairways and thick rough. The course provides an invigorating round of golf against a backdrop of rugged mountain landscapes. Length, strength and finesse are the key to scoring well on this course, which has hosted the PGA Club Professional Championship, the PGA Tour Final Qualifying School, the California State Open and the Ladies NCAA Championship. Fees range from $49 to $185, depending on the season.
