The Indian Wells Golf Resort Players Course (opened to the public in 2007) features wide playing corridors, traditional rectangular tee boxes and sculpted bunkers. Most of the holes are oriented to take full advantage of jaw-dropping views of the surrounding mountain ranges and majestic Eisenhower Mountain to the south. As a “core golf” layout, no roads or homes intrude into the golf courses, and each hole is designed to be somewhat sheltered from the others to elicit a feeling of solitude. Uniquely, designer John Fought was able to utilize many of the mature trees found on the original East Course property to impart the feel of a venerable facility while at the same time delivering a modern approach to golf course design.
“The Players Course has an interesting classic strategy developed in harmony with a host of wonderful aesthetics,” said John Fought. “The sand face bunkers are reminiscent of the work of George C. Thomas at Riviera. The mature trees, the California barrancas and stunning mountain views all combine to compose one of the finest new courses in the western United States!”
