Course Overview - Take Course Tour
The newest course at PGA WEST and the only Greg Norman-designed golf course in the Coachella Valley is aptly described as being very "challenging but fair." Sporting only 68 acres of lush manicured turf, 102 white crushed marble bunkers and shark blue water coming into play on 9 holes, this 7,200-yard course offers a truly "Outback" experience that will entice you back time and time again.
Resting in a prehistoric ocean bed 40-feet below sea level and surrounded by an immense crescent of terra cotta mountains, the course teems with purple, white and yellow wildflowers, while the mix of tall and short native grasses produce different shades of green running almost to silver. The grass covers just 60 acres of tight fairways that taper toward the greens with nine ponds blanketing 18 acres. The demands of this target-style course are a challenge for players of all levels.
"I'm a very intense person. When I go after something, I want to go after it with everything I have. I want to push myself to the edge." – Greg Norman
