Photo gallery: Players Course at Indian Wells Golf Resort near Palm Springs offers a brawny challenge
The Players Course at Indian Wells was designed by John Fought and plays a brawny 7,376 yards from the back tees. Its terrain isn't as dramatic as the resort's Celebrity course, but it features beautification in every spot and there is no residential development lining any fairways. Both Indian Wells courses are rated among some of the best public and municipal courses in both California and the country.
Designed by Clive Clark, the Celebrity Course is one of two courses at the Indian Wells Golf Resort near Palm Springs. Flashier than the resort's Players Course, the Celebrity features numerous water features, ornamentals and flashy bunkers. It's also unique in that it only has two par 5s and two par 4s, which still adds up to a par 72 over 7,050 yards.
Playing golf at Indian Wells Golf Resort goes way beyond the muni experience, writes Mike Bailey. It came with great views, meals and even a ticket to a pro tennis event.
The Celebrity Course at Indian Wells Golf Resort features a little more topographical variance than the resort's Players Course and also has more tight holes lined with trees. There is a stretch of wide-open holes on the back nine, starting with the 12th hole through the 16th hole. The Celebrity is rated among the best municipal plays in the United States.
Indian Wells Golf CoursesThe phrase "municipal golf" often conjures up images of patchy or bald fairways and greens - not plush, PGA Tour-ready conditions. But your muni probably isn't in the Coachella Valley city of Indian Wells, Calif. At the heart of it all are two municipal courses that fit right in among the area's top resort courses: the Indian Wells Golf Resort's Players and Celebrity courses.
