Indian Wells Golf Resort

We played 54 holes over Christmas and Boxing Day at Indian Wells and had an incredible time soaking in everything Golf at both courses.  We managed to finish the first round quickly (3’45”), enjoyed a nice lunch at the Vue restaurant, and then snagged the last time at noon on Christmas Day.  We came back the next day to spend the morning at their grass driving range, and I got a quick lesson from my buddy on sand escapes in their practice bunkers before heading out for another 18.

Indian Wells is a definite “must play” if you visit Palm Springs- it’s definitely on my list to re-visit next time we go back!

My favorite photo from our trip- No 15 at the Palyers Course. We are about 150 yards out- you can just spot the red flag right of center.

My buddy was oh-so-close to an eagle from 130 out on the same hole no. 15 hole (the next day)! It actually hit the pin on the hop and stopped right there.  #NoStressBirdie

Play through a sandstorm at the Players Course for our 2nd afternoon round.  (Keep right!  The fairway tilts towards the water!)

Short (drivable) Par 4 at the Celebrity Course

Back at Players Course the very next day! Par 5 No. 14.

  1. beautiful pics !!! I’ve been to California for golf many times. But never spend any time in the “desert”, I’ve been on the courses near the coast. I will have to go to the desert next time. Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip !

    • Thanks, Linley! There are definitely some excellent golf to be had down there. Besides the obvious temperature difference, it actually reminds me of golfing in the Rockies with the scenery and mountain backdrops. We had a great trip but we’re stuck in the arctic deep freeze back in Alberta now.
