If La Quinta is considered golf Heaven then you are bound to find plenty of the local Angels at the Palms Golf Club, on the east end of La Quinta enjoying a fast-paced game for which this tony golf club is best known. Designed by the famed architect Brian Curley with collaboration from Fred Couples this is the course that defines fast play.

The regulation size course (7,020 yards from the back tees) is a place where a three-hour game is the norm. With the ride/walk ratio about 75/25 it is a fast-moving course to the delight of its 400 private members. A private equity golf course, it has a rating of 74.0, 70 par and 134 slope. It first opened in 1999 with J.D. Ebersberger still managing the course as the Director of Golf. Since then it has become one of the most frequently played golf courses in the Coachella Valley.

Spread out over 150 acres of the 200 acre ranch The Palms is located next to the Weiskopf and Nicklaus resort courses at PGA West. This core golf course features traditional design with dramatic bunkering, plenty of great driving area, and smallish greens. With more than 2,000 mature date palms giving it a traditional look, it is one of the most beautiful sites between Indio and La Quinta.

The Palms has a state-of-the-art practice facility that includes a double ended driving range. It also sports target greens along with the fairway and an 8,000 square foot practice putting green. Add to that at fabulous 12,000 square-foot short game green for chipping, pitching, and bumper practices and you have the makings of golf Heaven.

Of course no golf course is complete without the club and this one has a single level, 18,000 square foot facility that includes a full 5,000 square feet of cart storage. An equity club, it is also a member owned and operated. With a single member, membership structure there is no need for tee times. Golf course superintendent Rigo Regalado keeps the grounds pristine and perfect at all times.

The East end location is particularly popular during certain times of the year, situated as it is, not far from the Empire Polo Grounds where the Coachella Music Festival, Stagecoach Festival, Riverside County Fair and Date Festival and other ultra-popular events are held during the season. Surrounded by luxury hotels, casinos and first-class accommodations The Palms is a favorite destination for golf fans of all skill levels, every month of the year.
