Golf courses at La Quinta Resort & Club and PGA WEST
Nicklaus Tournament Course
The Nicklaus Tournament Course at PGA WEST will fit the eye of longer hitters as it gives them the opportunity for power off the tee with room for forgiveness. While the fairways may be wide and forgiving, the numerous elevated greens require precise approach shots and an excellent short-game should you miss the target. The huge, undulating double-green that serves the 9th and 18th holes is a well-known feature on the course and is guarded by deep bunkers.
Greg Norman Course
The Greg Norman Course at PGA WEST lies in a pre-historic seabed, 40-feet below sea level and is surrounded by the mountainous landscape. Described as ‘challenging, yet fair’ Norman’s unique layout features a great deal of sand, areas of wildflowers, nine lakes and 360-degree views that are hard to beat in the Coachella Valley.
