If you’re seeking a world class golf experience to pair with your ultimate getaway, look no further than Indian Wells. Located in the heart of Greater Palm Springs, Indian Wells offers the perfect blend of relaxation and exceptional golf at Indian Wells Golf Resort. You’ll be immediately greeted with a golfer’s paradise of blue skies, fresh air, and immaculate fairways, under a beautiful mountain backdrop. Whether you are taking advantage of a hotel “Stay & Play” package or simply adding a round to your vacation, you’ll be rewarded with a unique combination of unmatched beauty and exceptional play.
Swing into Paradise
Indian Wells Golf Resort is home to 36 holes of legendary golf among a labyrinth of lush fairways and sculpted bunkers. The Players and Celebrity courses have ranked in the Top 25 “Best Municipal Courses in the United States” by Golfweek Magazine and hosted Golf Channel’s Big Break and the PGA’s Skins Game.
There is no wrong choice when considering which course to play. After all, both offer incredible views from almost every hole. However, they are unique in design and play. A John Fought design, the Players course is arranged in a style similar to Riviera, Winged Foot and others created by the legendary golf course architect Dr. Alistair Mackenzie. Large, aged trees line the green belts of this surprisingly modern course.
The Celebrity course boasts mountain views, swirling fairways as well as split-level lakes and waterfalls. Designed by Clive Clark, this championship course features immaculately landscaped greens and beautiful bunkering. The play is challenging but also fun, so it’s easy to see why it’s made many of the “Best of” lists in golf.
Book one, or both. Either way, in the midst of this unmatched beauty, don’t forget to keep your head down.
Dine with a VUE
The Indian Wells Golf Resort experience doesn’t end on the course. Make sure to plan for a bite and beverage at VUE Grille & Bar. VUE offers a notable feel of upscale complimented with a laidback vibe. Take a seat on the outdoor patio to fully appreciate the phenomenal view, or catch the current sports event on one of several indoor televisions. Like the surroundings, the menu is sure to impress. And, if you’re a fan of bourbon, you are in for a treat. VUE offers one of, if not the, valley’s best bourbon selections.
Play Golf Under the Stars
There’s more. Thirty minutes after sunset, head back outside to the new Shots in the Night experience and extend the fun into the evening. Two unique venues light up the skies with glow-in-the-dark golf balls, illuminated targets, and laser lit putting games. Choose from the putting experience powered by Nextlinks, where a unique and “lit” twist on the standard putt-putt course awaits even the most casual (aka “inexperienced”) player. Or head on over to the Glow Golf Range where you’ll find 12 illuminated hitting stalls and glowing balls flying through the air. Add a curated menu from the food truck along with beverage service, and you have a formula of fun for everyone in your group.
