People always say that the next generation is always a better and improved version of its predecessor. But what if something born of this new era is a wonderful fusion of the past, present and the future? Remarkable, yes. Impossible, almost. Almost, because this is a concept that is the theme of the newest fab golf vacation destination in the Palm Springs golf scene: the Escena Golf Club.
The original layout of what was once known as the Palm Springs Classic Golf Club was scrapped to give way to this unique course by the Nicklaus Design Group. The classic resort layout was blended with some tough hazards meant for championship play. The surrounding desert mountains add more flare and flavor to the elements. The fairways are wide, the sand hazards are plenty, and the water features are as stunning to the aesthetics as to playability. There is a touch of sophistication, a hint of wild and a tinge of risky in every aspect of it. Golf vacations at the Escena Golf Club will be eternally remembered as dynamic and nothing like anywhere else.
And since it has taken on the role of an exemplary golf trip location, the merits of the Escena Golf Club did not stop with the layout. The clubhouse and the pro-shop were built to match the demands for an outstanding vacation, suited to fit the taste of every guest. There is no doubt as to why the club has been named among the Top Ten Public Courses in California by PGATour.com and the 2010 Best Public Golf Course in the Palm Springs Life “Best of the Best” Reader’s Choice. That is one feat that obviously would be the pride of its generation and the envy of the ones to come.
