The Monterey Country Club in Palm Desert, California, combines golfing tradition with modern convenience. Nestled at the foot of the Santa Rosa Mountains, this resort offers the best amenities, privileges, and services that has garnered it the reputation for being one of the finest clubs in this region.
The nine-hole layout of the club’s magnificent 27 holes of golf was designed by Ted Robinson, Jr. who worked to blend the fairways seamlessly with the natural habitats. This beautiful group of lakes, ponds, palm trees, and lush landscaping is said to be in perfect harmony. Lessons are available for golfers of all ages whether they are experts or need assistance from a professional to go through the basics. There is a full driving range as well as practice area with putting green. And members receive special prices at the pro shop.
