PGA West Stadium Course is located in Palm Springs California. Designed by Pete Dye and host to many PGA tour tournaments. This was my first time to Palm Springs but definitely not my last. My wife and I were staying in Las Vegas and decided to pass by Palm Springs on the way to LA. We stayed at La Quinta Resort which is a really nice place.

Hole 9, par 4, 393m

A tough hole with a bunker that stretches a long way up the right hand side of the fairway and water next to that. Really well designed hole.

17th par 3, 133m

The 17 at PGA west stadiume course is a well known. It is a really good hole and with great views in the background. There is something about playing in the desert. I hit a 7 iron into the wind a was happy with my par.

A strong finishing hole at PGA west Stadium course where I missed the fairway right and made bogey.

my experience

I really enjoyed the course. Even though it is a resort course and the first part of the course was not the most inspiring, it really grew on me during the round. It was well maintained the many of the holes with good bunkering and water features that plays with your mind. I didn’t play that well, but still enjoyed the challenge and would certainly play it again if in the area. We got a green fee deal through La Quinta which was okay.
