The Resort Course of the Tahquitz Creek Golf Resort in Palm Springs is every bit of a resort course. Simply said, the name in itself is self explanatory. There’s the usual resort course staples of beauty, fun, amenities, and maintenance. But what cuts this course above the rest is the clever and tastefully made combination of man-made features and natural beauty. And other than the aesthetics, golfers are in for a truly wonderful resort golf trip experience that is unique only to Palm Springs, unique only to Tahquitz.
Sharing the same property with its sibling course, and the original course on the golf vacation destination – the Legend – the Resort Course is in for quite a competition in its home turf alone. But where the Legend edges on toughness, this Ted Robinson creation is a true charmer. It is a suave and smooth course that may hurt golfers one way or another and trust for them not to mind. The course is defined by the rolling terrains gracing the links style desert layout with some large shaped bunkers scattered around the holes.
And what serves as a perfect breather for this course is the presence of several water features that are directly or indirectly present in most holes. They are as tough on the game as they are pleasant to the senses. Add to it the fact that the Resort Course is surrounded by sweeping vistas of golden desert mountains and the best of nature this side of town, this is fantasy resort golf vacation come alive. The course measures more than 6,700 yards from the longest tees, par 72. It opened in 1995.
