JACK NICKLAUS TOURNAMENT COURSE AT PGA WEST

One of Palm Springs’ best designs from a legend of the game.

Book a Tee Time

The same forceful presence the Golden Bear brought to his game is evident in his challenging desert layout. Long hitters will appreciate the opportunity for power off the tee with room for forgiveness, while elevated greens require you to literally raise your short game to another level. The intensity and demand of this Jack Nicklaus design is tempered by dramatic beauty and excitement of playing one of the most highly regarded courses in the Palm Springs area.

Par 4

1st HOLE

par 4

One of the best starting holes in golf. Off the tee avoid the right bunker, while there’s more room to the right than appears to be. The depth of the green is shallow, so just aim for the middle.

Once you have managed to carry, or stay clear, of this first fairway bunker, the real decision begins. Longer hitters can take a chance at the island green. Great risk and reward hole.
