The Classic Club

The Classic Club
Palm Desert

By Michael Castello

The Classic ClubThe Palm Springs area is located between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Most know that large swatch of land as the Mojave Desert. You wouldn't know that when playing the beautiful Classic Club. There is more water on this course than almost any other club I've ever played. This is truly an oasis and one of the finest layouts in memory.

The Classic Club is a 7,305 yard 18 hole, par-72, that has 30 acres of lake and water features, and 14 stone bridges. Pine trees make much of the course look like it is situated back East since there are no palm trees within view. Classic Club features over 5,000 Pine, California Pepper & Olive Trees with 11,000 cubic yards of mulch and pine straw. Much rolling terrain with several elevated tees and many drop-offs. The two times I've played the Classic there was not a breeze and the conditions were near perfect. This Arnold Palmer creation seems to have water staring at you from the right side of every fairway. Did I mention sand traps? There must be at least 150 of them. With Arnold Palmer's design there is always something you need to keep away from unless you know how to hit the ball, “perfectly."

The Classic ClubGorgeous mountains surround you actually making the greens look miles away, and what a pleasure it is finding them. The fairways are stunning and the greens are meticulously manicured and a bona fide challenge for golf enthusiasts and professionals. The 2006 and 2007 Bob Hope Classic were played here. Caddies are available and I suggest you take advantage of them. They will definitely save you several strokes on this beauty.

The par-4, 11th and par-3, 12th are my two favorite holes and are a double-header. The 14th is lined with about 300 yards of water on the right which cuts off the green at the front. The 12th hole is the signature photo at the top of this article. A 160 yard reach to the green which is surrounded with waterfalls including the back area. A wonderful and challenging piece.

The 63,000 sq. ft. Tuscany inspired Clubhouse offers fine dining, locker rooms and banquet facilities and is opening in the Summer 2007.

In our foursome, we took many pictures and most were good enough to include in this article. You just could not take a bad picture at the Classic. There may be over 100 golf courses in the surrounding Palm Springs area. This is one of my top three courses. On your next visit make sure The Classic Club is included.The Classic Club is located in Palm Desert.
