Indian Canyons Golf Resort overview
Located at the foothills of the San Jacinto mountains, the peaks protect the North and South courses at Indian Canyons from the strong winds of the Coachella Valley and also blesses you with the spectacular backdrop of snow-capped peaks and cloudless skies. Throughout the 60s and 70s, originally as a private club, former U.S. Presidents such as Lyndon Johnson and Ronald Reagan, as well as Hollywood celebrities including Frank Sinatra, like to relax and play at the 36-hole country club and aside from a few redesigns, you can see what drew them there all those years ago.
Golf courses at Indian Canyons Golf Resort
The North Course is the longer of the two courses at Indian Canyons and its weaving fairways take you back in time through mid-century modern homes. Protected from strong winds by the San Jacinto mountains the North course is well suited for all golfers however, with six water hazards there can be little room for error. One of this Palm Springs course biggest thrills is the historic Walt Disney water fountain, visible from the 9th and 18th, this feature shoots water jets 100 feet high.
The South course at Indian Canyons is a great test of golfing ability as redesigns in 2004 created this tricky par-72 championship layout. Water is a prominent feature on the course with four lakes coming into play on six holes, making it even more important to be accurate off the tee and on your approach shots to avoid these hazards. Aside from the water, one of the courses unique traits is the five par-5s that create plenty of birdie opportunities.
