Rancho Mirage Country Club is a semi-private golf course, although open to the public. It is nestled in the middle of the Coachella Valley less than 10 miles from Palm Springs International Airport in beautiful Rancho Mirage at the corner of Bob Hope Drive and Frank Sinatra Drive. This very popular desert course is close to the 10 freeway and right in the heart of the valley desert with all the restaurants, bars and night clubs just minutes away.

Rancho Mirage Country Club is a scenic and challenging golf experience at just over 6100 yards, offering a men’s par 70 and ladies par 72 track golf course that golfers of all skill and handicap will find enjoyable.

This fun, but challenging course is sliced in between rows of modern single family residences, cute town homes and year around condo communities within the meticulously landscaped gated community. The residential homes along the course are the borders for the tree-lined but very generous fairways that are plenty wide and many are slightly to moderately undulated. With water in play on 9 of the 18 holes, and 6 of the 10 par 4’s playing in excess of 400 yards, there is rarely a player who leaves feeling that have played anything short of championship golf.

The greens are usually in great shape although many have slope and contour. The green side landing areas are well manicured but miss the short grass and you will play over bunkers and from deeper rough on many holes. There are beautiful fountain water hazards and strategically placed sand bunkers scattered throughout the golf course that will challenge golfers of all skill and handicap level.
Players will enjoy the spectacular views of the Santa Rosa and the San Jacinto Mountains. The course is built on a natural desert landscape with rolling terrain and playing into small greens. Water hazards come into play on 10 holes. It is great for all levels of play.

The practice facility is adequate at best. Very narrow driving range that runs parallel to the 10th hole, errant slices (for right hand players) will end up in the number 10 fairway. The practice putting green is very small and not representative of the speed or texture you will experience on the course.

Rancho Mirage Country Club is located at 38-500 Bob Hope Dr, Rancho Mirage, CA 92270 or can be contacted by calling (760) 324-4711.
