Desert hideaway at the foot of the Santa Rosa Mountains with five golf courses, seven restaurants and a spa
Set against the Santa Rosa Mountains, this resort started life in 1926 as a playground for Tinsel Town’s top talent, and today guests still feel like stars at this sprawling resort featuring some 796 elegantly appointed adobe casitas, suites and villas. Manicured lawns separate the casitas while other rooms, decorated in early-California style with wrought iron, tile, and dark woods, are in newer two-story units surrounding individual swimming pools and hot tubs amid lush gardens. In addition to an award-winning spa, there’s a world-class tennis club, five championship golf courses, and seven gourmet restaurants, including flagship Morgan’s in the Desert where three-time James Beard award-winning chef Jimmy Schmidt cooks up farm-fresh American cuisine.
In the Area
Duffers will do a double take when they see the awesome selection of golf courses here. It starts with Resort Mountain Course set against soaring peaks and desert sands. For a taste of the game’s Scottish roots, tee off at the Pete Dye-designed Resort Dunes Course. Another Pete Dye design, the TPC Stadium Course at PGA West is one of the toughest in California with unique undulations, cavernous bunkers and an island par 3 to remember. Fans of the Golden Bear will love the Jack Nicklaus Tournament Course where long hitters have room to roam but elevated greens require precision iron play. For Palm Springs golf from a down under perspective, check out the Greg Norman Course, which features an abundance of sand, sage, wildflowers, nine lakes and perfect panoramic views from the tee boxes and greens.
