Water can be found on half of the holes on the course including the signature 17th, an island green par-3 nicknamed ‘Alcatraz”. Previously ranked as 4th in the toughest courses to play in the country by Golf Digest the Stadium is a real test, at 7300 yards off the back tees you have to be on your A-game to score well, however with six teeing options in total, every golfer can take on this course.

The Pete Dye Stadium Course is definitely one to include in a visit to Palm Springs.

Signature Holes

Large boulders surround the green giving it a similar appearance to its namesake which ricochet any tee shots that don’t find the putting surface.
