Desert Dunes Golf Club

Meandering its way through natural sand dunes and surrounded by the pristine native vegetation of the Mojave Desert, the award-winning Desert Dunes Golf Club stands out as a Robert Trent Jones Jr. masterpiece. Opening in 1989 with 18 holes, a driving range, a short game area and a putting green, the expansive greens of this beautiful golf course are embraced by collection areas and strategically placed bunkers.

Adding to the complexity of this unique course are a number of holes featuring doglegs and elevation changes which challenge even the most seasoned golfers. Nevertheless, with four sets of tees to choose from anyone can play this course regardless of their level of mastery. The course was designed by the legendary architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. and is still widely considered to be one of the most challenging courses in the Coachella Valley.

Known affectionately as Bobby, Trent Jones is the son of the iconic golf course designer Robert Trent Jones and the brother of golf course designer Rees Jones. Educated at Yale and Stanford he became vice president of the family company and assumed control of West Coast operations in 1962. His company has designed some of the most prestigious golf courses on the international circuit including several located in the Palm Springs and La Quinta area.

Desert Dunes Golf Club has received many awards and accolades over the years including its ranking as one of the top 30 public golf facilities in the nation and a Four-Star Place to Play rating by Golf Digest. Wildlife also abounds surrounding this course thanks to its natural setting that includes large natural sand dunes and plenty of desert vegetation. There is a double green on the 9th and 18th holes that includes a bunker which dissects the middle of it. This creates plenty of opportunities for hacker havoc, to the delight of many.

The golf season at Desert Dunes is year-round with price friendly packages, golf carts and the available Pro standing by. This is a local’s friendly course that is popular among both year-round and part-time residents. With solid, down to earth golfing spread out over 174 acres, this is a course that offers plenty of unique features amid the natural ambiance of the Mojave Desert. Early mornings are especially pristine with purple shadows stretching across the surrounding hills and mountains and the sounds of the natural wildlife just waking up.

If you are looking for solitude, natural beauty, and peace, play where the locals play. The Desert Dunes Players Club offers plenty of great deals and special amenities at reasonable prices. Even better, after a day on the course, take the opportunity to visit one of the several Hot Springs spas that surround the golf club. Desert Hot Springs is known for its therapeutic healing underwater Hot Springs. Folks travel from far and wide to spend the day soaking in one of the many pools that cover this section of desert.
