PLAY IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF GREATNESS
If golf courses could talk, imagine the stories Tamarisk could tell. In the '60s, the New York Times proclaimed Tamarisk the 'playground' of Frank Sinatra and his 'Rat Pack.' Eighteen times celebrities, U.S. Presidents, and golf pros have competed here in the Bob Hope Desert Classic. And one of golf’s greatest players, Ben Hogan, helped to shape our Club traditions as Tamarisk's first Golf Professional.
A William Bell designed golf course, Tamarisk is characterized by its distinctive, well-maintained ground features. Tamarisk is a classic, traditional-style golf course that stands out as unique among the many courses in the Coachella Valley.
The tree-lined fairways offer the golfer a much different look than you will find on many of the desert courses. While most of the fairways are generous in width, the fairway bunkers shape most of the holes, and are strategically placed off the tee.
Our course also features four memorable Par 3's that demand quality shot making. The Par 3’s are where the course really challenges any level of player; they are lengthy and feature deep, greenside bunkers that will swallow up any errant shots to the green.
Something for every player. Challenging for the low handicapper, yet fun and forgiving for the beginner.
Simply put, the greens in peak-season, are among the best you will ever putt on. They are fast, they have plenty of slope, and are big enough to allow for many hole locations; which will change how each hole plays from day to day. Shot selection into these ultra-fast greens is critical.
As you play the course several things will stand out. The architecture of the homes on the course are classic mid-century modern and separates Tamarisk from many of the newer clubs in the area. Being a 'Rat Pack' celebrity hangout, many homes that were owned by Hollywood stars from the 1950’s and 60’s still sit on the course today.
The stunning San Jacinto mountain views offer a stunning background that rivals any club in the Valley; making it a truly beautiful setting to enjoy a round of golf.
