Greg Norman Course at PGA WEST

Palm Springs desert golf from the Down Under perspective. It’s only fitting that the Shark’s contribution to the Palm Springs golf experience should be carved from the floor of an ancient ocean. Greg Norman captured the essence of desert golf with an “Outback” flair in this challenging but fair design that features an abundance of sand, sage, colorful pockets of wildflowers, nine lakes and spectacular panoramic vistas, unmatched anywhere in the Coachella Valley. This Norman gem recently became Audubon Certified.

    6th Hole

    PAR 4

    The #1 handicap hole for good reason. You need to hit two great shots to reach the green in regulation. Out of bounds is just left of the cart path. A long iron or hybrid to the middle of the green, guarded by two deep bunkers, is the best play.

    8th Hole

    PAR 5

    A true three shot par 5. Longer hitters will want to favor the left center to avoid the water and bunkers on the right. Continue favoring the left side for your layup as the water looms the final 350 yards on the right.
