The Mesquite Golf Course in Palm Springs CA

The Mesquite Golf Course is a privately owned public 18 hole championship golf course located in south Palm Springs and less than a 5 minute drive from either downtown Palm Springs, casinos, restaurants and famous hotels or the Palm Springs International Airport.

Mesquite Golf Club has been host to several local PGA & Golden State Tour events and is known as a place for celebrities such as Bob Hope and Frank Sinatra frequented the club house and played these very same fairways back in the day. This course measures 6,312 yard from the back “Black” tees. This is a relatively flat course with some rolling terrain. The fairways are lined with hundreds of 25-plus year old mature palm trees and features 5 lakes crossing 7 bridges that provide spectacular water hazards that require carry in a couple of instances to test club selection and shot accuracy. The San Jacinto and Santa Rosa Mountain ranges stand tall in the background as postcard perfect scenery for this very enjoyable golf course.

The holes on this course are evenly spread out featuring six par 3’s, six par 4’s and six par 5’s; 3 of each type can be found on both the front and back. The six par 3’s range from 173 yards to 225 yards in length from the tips. While the longest par 5 is 518 yards.

Hole number 1 is a difficult 518 yard par 5 that requires shot placement from the tee to navigate the dog leg right. Your second shot will need to carry the slight corner right on approach in order to reach in two. Hole 8 is a 173 yard par 3 protected by water along the left side and deep sand bunkers guarding left side and right side of the green. The closing holes 17 and 18 are both long par 4’s measuring 456 and 435 yards in length. Hole 18 teases with a smallish green very well protected by 3 deep sand bunkers on the left, right and behind the hole. You don’t want to be long on your approach as the green slopes severely back to front.

Don’t be fooled by this relatively short course, playing 6,400 yards from the tips, the course will challenge players of all handicap levels and promises to be a very memorable round of golf for players of all skill levels.

Mesquite Golf Club also provides a great practice area including driving range, chipping practice green with sand bunker and a large practice putting surface.

The Clubhouse was built in classic Spanish style and boasts over 15,000 square feet. It includes an elevated full restaurant, banquet area and patio with breathtaking views of the mountains and lush fairways; a cocktail lounge, pro shop and two racquetball courts.
