The East Course at The Golf Resort at Indian Wells was recently listed in Golf Digest's new guide-book, "Best Places to Play 2004-2005," as one of the best public access golf courses in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Islands, announced Indian Wells Mayor Mary T. Roche. The signature 17th hole was created by famed golf course designer Ted Robinson, the 142-yard multi-level par 3 beauty features an island green surrounded by picturesque waterfalls. Some 20,000 Golf Digest readers evaluated 3,500 courses on overall golf experience, value for the money, standard of service, conditioning of the course and normal pace of play for 18 holes. The Golf Resort earned an impressive 4.5 of a maximum of 5 stars.
"We know we're competing with a lot of other outstanding courses," noted Mayor Roche. "We constantly strive to provide an exceptional experience for our residents and visitors. It's a source of great pride that Golf Digest's readers feel we are succeeding!"
The city-owned resort, which was featured on the Golf Channel's "Dean on the Road" series, boasts two immaculate Ted Robinson-designed championship courses and a recently expanded Callaway Golf Performance Center. The Golf Resort has been named one of the Top 10 Resort in California by California Golf Magazine, and One of the Best Golf Courses in North America by The Leading Golf Courses of America. A three-time Golf Magazine medallist, the resort has also earned a Golden Tee Award by Meetings and Convention magazine.
This summer, all Indian Wells luxury resorts feature special golf packages.
