SilverRock Golf Resort – La Quinta

By on April 12, 2016

At the base of the majestic Santa Rosa Mountains sits one of the most beautiful resorts in the Coachella Valley. Owned by the city of La Quinta and managed by Landmark Golf Management, SilverRock Resort’s Arnold Palmer Classic Course, is a former home course for the Bob Hope Classic 2008 – 2011. Spread out over 200 acres, an expansive 7,578 yards of sheer natural beauty and stunning water features make up the exquisite grounds of this palatial resort.

The city of La Quinta’s first municipal golf course offers 18 holes of spectacular play open to the public. Situated as a portion of a 525 acre parcel that is still under development there are ongoing plans that will include a boutique hotel, resort hotel, Casitas and timeshare units, a resort retail village, and a black box theater. La Quinta has grown from a small village nestled at the base of the Santa Rosa Mountains, known primarily as an art colony for many years, into one of the most spectacular jewels of the desert.

The home course of the Bob Hope Classic from 2008 to 2011, the SilverRock property includes the SilverRock Resort, La Quinta Country Club, Nicklaus Private at PGA West and Palmer Private at PGA West. The Arnold Palmer classic course at SilverRock was named in the Top 10 New Courses You Can Play by Golf Magazine in 2005, along with Best Tour Golf Courses You Can Play in 2009 and 2000 and by Awards from Golfweek.

Zagat joined the accolades in 2008, 2009, and 2010 bestowing Zagat America’s top Golf Courses Award. Then Greenkeeper.org rated SilverRock number one in the Palm Springs area in 2008 with the Best Playing Conditions and Worth the Green Fee awards. The beautiful Clubhouse, sits among Rocky outcroppings and is a charming renovation of a former working ranch hacienda as built by Mr. and Mrs. Howard Ahmanson of Home Savings and Loan fame.

As a planned development project of the city of La Quinta the master plan includes 36 holes of championship golf, world-class practice Center, along with the other amenities listed earlier. Of course the resort itself is surrounded by some of the finest hotels and gourmet dining anywhere in the Coachella Valley. With its perfect East Valley location it is also close to the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio which hosts the Coachella Music Festival and Stagecoach Music Festival annually. These two music extravaganzas are attended by tens of thousands and are now world-famous events.

Far from being the seasonal venue it once was, Coachella Valley has become a truly year-round international destination as well as the “go to” location for golf and tennis tournaments. With resorts such as SilverRock setting the bar for excellence the sky is the limit. Plan to play your next game on one of these classic courses!
