Indian Wells Golf Club’s course is known as a “shotmaker’s” course, where you’ll probably need to use every club in your bag. Renowned architect Gene Hamm styled this 18-hole, par 72 course with its undulating TifEagle Bermuda terrain, after traditional U. S. Open courses. Bunkers played a big part in shaping the contours of the greens, and tree lining shaped the holes.
Plan to have a lot of fun but wear your thinking cap while facing down big oak trees in odd places, doglegs and water hazards – 14 water features total. But even average golfers have a strong shot at scoring well. You might feel challenged, but you’ll enjoy the experience.
Some strategic planning will get you where you need to be. Because of the doglegs and some of the water, you’ll want to strategize where you want to land the ball in order to position yourself well for the next shot.
Whatever difficulty exists is made up for by the course length. The course is not a long one, so even with poor driving, golfers can still score well. Because there are several different approaches to the greens, you’ll want to play again and again to try them all.
