Tom Weiskopf designed only one golf course in the Coachella Valley and it is here at PGA West in La Quinta, California. Built in 1996, the Weiskopf was the last private course built at this facility and has traditional features such as the Scottish links and Swilcan Bridges found at the Old Course in St. Andrews. Panoramic views and lush landscape add to the experience of a challenging golf game. The course plays a par 72 on over 7,100 yards. And there are four sets of tees as well as a combo that plays as short as 5,535 yards.
The Weiskopf is considered a favorite of many golfers and is one of the six legendary courses at PGA West. Many people in the Palm Springs area prefer this 2,000 acre resort which features 109 holes of championship golf and many clubhouse amenities. You’ll find 19 tennis courts here as well as fine dining, classes to keep in shape, and relaxing spa services. And facilities are available for weddings and other events. It’s also an attraction for the rich and famous including several presidents who have played golf here.
Members enjoy many benefits but nonmembers are also welcome here to play on the Jack Nicklaus Tournament and the TPC Stadium golf courses. These invitations are extended to residents of La Quinta and California as well as guests at La Quinta Resort & Club. The club’s Golf Academy also welcomes the public.
