TPC Stadium Course at PGA WEST

Walk in the footsteps of legends. Designed for golf’s biggest stage, The TPC Stadium Course—home of the Skins Game—is where legends have made history. This par-72 Pete Dye-designed jewel is a “must play” for those seeking the ultimate golf challenge. A favorite among touring professionals, and ranked among the best by Golf Magazine, Golf Digest, and Golfweek, Pete Dye crafted one of the most challenging tracks you can play; creating 18 individual masterpieces, each with a character and identity all its own. The infamous 17th tee, known as “Alcatraz” was inspired by the 17th island green at TPC Sawgrass. TPC Stadium derives its mystique  from unique undulations, cavernous bunkers and peninsula and island par 3s. Tournament highlights include the Skins Game, Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf and the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic.

Jack Nicklaus Tournament Course at PGA WEST

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

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.
