In the heart of the desert, Indian Wells Golf Course is an oasis of beautiful views and modern desert architecture. Its 36-hole golf course is surrounded by a picturesque countryside with spectacular canyons and vistas. The course has been home to the Bob Hope Desert Classic golf tournament for more than 40 years.

The 53,000-sq-ft remodeled clubhouse contains up-scale retail shops and restaurants. Dining venues are surrounded by glass windows, revealing views of the golf course and surrounding mountains. Large sliding glass doors allow an effortless transition to outdoor patios.

The clubhouse exterior features 24,000 sq ft of 18-in. x 24-in. sandstone tiles, and limestone and granite accents. A suspended waterfall cascades between sandstone pillars, enticing visitors toward a stone staircase. Well-placed pavers are set as though they are flowing away from the building.

Indian Wells Golf Clubhouse is expected to become the hub of its community, as a complete package of world-class golf and desert lifestyle amenities.
