An everyday cease on my annual Mecca to the “golf capital” of the world, is the Indian Canyons Resort in Palm Springs, California. Again within the day when Frank Sinatra and the “Rat Pack” had been regulars within the desert paradise referred to as Palm Springs, one of many first very posh and personal programs was then referred to as the Canyon Nation Membership. A really unique personal membership that was the primary residence of the Frank Sinatra superstar golf event, this location has seen the likes of Sinatra, Martin, Disney and Eisenhower.
When the economic system tanked and unique golf memberships had been one of many first luxuries to be sacrificed by the previously wealthy and well-known, the as soon as members solely Canyon Nation Membership was opened to the general public. Now thought of, semi – personal and on Indian land within the coronary heart of Palm Springs this 36 – gap resort is nestled on the base of the San Jacinto Mountains in what locals prefer to name a “wind free” zone. The power provides two very distinctively 18-hole golf programs. The primary of two programs is the South Course. It’s an 18-hole championship course that was redesigned by Casey O’Callaghan in 2004 together with guide and LPGA Corridor of Fame member Amy Alcott. It’s a par 72 that consists of 6,582 yards with 4 lakes that every come into play on six of the holes. My favourite holes of this course are the par 5 holes. All instructed there are 5 of them on the South Course and they’re bounded by water, palm tree and desert cactus, natural world.
Just like the South Course the North Course is an 18-hole championship course. It’s a par 72 that consists of 6,943 yards. Designed by well-known architect, William P. Bell, it’s steeped deep
in custom. The North Course gives six difficult water hazards with the most important situated between the ninth and 18th gap. The fantastic thing about the North Course is the way in which it meanders via Palm Springs’ trendy ‘Canyon Nation Membership area with its architecturally important mid-century fashionable properties. The North Course is the unique members solely Canyon Nation Membership course and it has a clubhouse that has black and white images of some probably the most well-known personages each to play golf in Palm Springs. When you’re carried out with a day of golf, the clubhouse is a superb place to take a seat, chill out and speak golf with your pals or just take within the magnificence and serenity of the snow – capped mountains.
