About Classic Club

The Classic Club is a Semi-Private, high end, 18-hole, daily fee golf course located in Palm Desert California.

The Classic Club golf course opened in 2006. The course was designed by Arnold Palmer.

Classic Club has over 5,000 Pine, California Pepper and Olive Trees, 30 acres of lake and water features and 14 stone bridges. This 18 hole, par-72, 7,305 yard unique Arnold Palmer-designed course offers a variety of tee options, appealing to players at all levels of the game. With 5 sets of tees on each hole, you will find one that fits your game.

Classic Club has a rolling terrain with several elevated tees featuring a core design with pine, olive and pepperwood trees, offset by flowering bushes, shrubs, and pine straw ground cover, all playing off of the surrounding mountains and vistas that are exclusive to the Coachella Valley, to make for an incredibly beautiful golf experience. Fore Caddies/Golf concierge are included to enhance the experience.

Classic Club #18 was selected as one of the three Most Beautifully Brutal Par 5 Golf Holes in the Southwest United States. The Classic Club hole #18 has served as the finishing hole for the Bob Hope Desert Classic. Its nine bunkers cover more than two-thirds of an acre. The hole also is guarded by a lake that runs along the entire right side to a fast green that slopes toward the water.

To add even more allure, the course featuers a Tuscany inspired Clubhouse with fine dining, locker rooms, banquet facilities and The Bob Hope Gallery displaying Bob Hope's lifetime collection of golf memorabilia.

A very sweet course. Even though it costs $99/round, we/I will play it each year we go down. In fact in 10 days of play next year we plan to play it twice.

THE COURSE WAS BEAUTIFUL CONSIDERING I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF PALM DESERT AND THERE WERE PINE TREES SURROUNDING THE COURSE. SO IT WAS UNEXPECTED AND STUNNING. WITH THE USE OF THE WATER FEATURES IT REMINDED ME OF TPC SAWGRASS AS YOU HAD TO SHAPE YOUR SHOTS AROUND THE COURSE, BUT THE FAIRWAYS WERE AMPLE AND LUSH. THE BUNKERS ACTUALLY HAD VERY GOOD SAND IN THEM. AND THE GREENS WERE VERY FAST BUT FAIR.

I have a residents card for this course which makes it extremely worthwhile. I played this course numerous times and find it challenging each and every time. The course is well laid out and extremely well maintained. The staff is excellent and professional. I would highly recommend this course to anyone headed to the palm springs area. The restaurant is an exceptional value for the cuisine offered.

One of the best courses I played in awhile. We played with a group weekend deal. Even then it was a great course to play. I would and will definitely come back here again. Now I didnt play in the wind here this day, but I hear it blows good at times. Would make this course extremely difficult. Its tough enough as is. I wish I played it once before, would help immensely. But never the less. Its a Must Golf Day.....The staff is amazing here, and help you out on the course. Love the water holes are great. Loved it.

Patince and course management essential. Some of the sloping and blind shots were not well designed. Windy
