Cathedral Canyon Golf Club lies in the basin of the stunning San Jacinto Mountains. Locals know this golf course as one of the most spectacular tracks in the entire Coachella Valley. The course provides three strategically designed nine hole courses stitched together to be played in three different eighteen hole combinations. This beautiful property was originally purchased by legendary big band leader, Lawrence Welk.

When you play Cathedral Canyon you can expect challenging 18-holes of beautiful championship golf among the tree lined fairways, 16 lakes, well maintained undulating greens, and strategically placed bunkers that challenge golfers of all skill levels. The greens are perfectly maintained and are among the best in desert golf. Each of the courses are cut into the naturally rolling terrain and offer fantastic vistas of the San Jacinto Mountains.

There are four sets of tees on each hole to accommodate golfers of all skill. The 3 courses measure distances of 6,505 yards, 6,172 yards and 5,441 yards. The course has distance markers for 200, 150 and 100 yards visible on the fairways, and color coded flags indicate front, middle and back hole locations on the mildly sloping putting surfaces.

The Resort Course was designed with the Scottish-links style in mind. The rough bordering all the fairways is very high. This course is not exactly a target course because it allows for mistakes, but ponds do come into play on a few holes. The Lakeview Course is a target course, forcing the golfer to hit over numerous hazards to small landing areas. Water hazards come into play on every hole, so be sure to bring plenty of extra balls. The Mountain View Course is also a position course. The signature hole is #7 on the Mountain View Course. The tee shot requires accuracy to avoid hazards protecting the fairway on both sides. You will want to land your approach shot below the hole on this tiered green.

Cathedral Canyon is open for public play, and with rates topping out at under $100 including cart during the busy season, is one of the more outstanding golfing values in the Palm Springs area.

Cathedral Canyon Golf Club is located at 68311 Paseo Real, Cathedral City, CA 92234 and can be contacted by calling 760-328-6571
