The Players Course, designed by John Fought, opened in November 2007. It features a classic American design complete with sculpted bunkers and seamlessly integrates stately trees found on the original properties into the new design. This creates a unique feeling of playing at an older venerable facility that delivers a modern approach to golf course design. Many of the holes are oriented to take full advantage of jaw-dropping views of the San Jacinto, Santa Rosa and San Bernardino mountain ranges.

Designed by golf architect Clive Clark, the Celebrity Course opened in November 2006 to rave reviews. In addition to spectacular mountain views, this par-72 course features undulating fairways, flowing water in the form of streams, brooks and split-level lakes connected by striking waterfalls and vibrant floral detail. Unrivaled in beauty and playability, the Celebrity Course offers an unmatched golf experience that will have players returning again and again.
The nine-hole Putting Course offers a challenge to all players. Laid out over rolling terrain, this ultra contoured, night lit nine-hole course presents challenges for golfers of all skillsets. PGA Tour member Rocco Mediate set the course record with an incredible score of 17.
