Nicklaus Tournament Course
at PGA WEST
Palm Springs, USA
Nicklaus Tournament Course overview
This Jack Nicklaus design at PGA WEST will fit the eye of longer hitters as it gives 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. Water comes into play on seven of the holes with the signature hole being the par-5 15th with an island green guarded by both the surrounding water hazard and two large bunkers. The huge, undulating double-green that serves the 9th and 18th holes is a well-known feature on the course and is guarded by more deep bunkers. A great test of golf and a course to include on your next vacation in Palm Springs.
