Career Builder Golf Challenge
You’ll want to be in the desert this January, when the Career Builder Golf Challenge comes to La Quinta. From January 18th to the 22nd, you can experience fun, sun, music, cocktails, friends and golf. This PGA TOUR golf event is going to provide a spectacular experience for fans, players and volunteers.
Held at The Stadium and the Jack Nicklaus Tournament Courses at PGA WEST and the La Quinta Country Club, there are a number of ways you can participate.
Who will be there?
Phil Mickelson is headlining a field of 156 PGA TOUR pros and 156 amateurs, completing over 72 holes. This event is one of Phil’s top events of the year.
What will this event offer the fan?
A new hospitality lounge is being built at The Stadium Course and there will also be free fan activities, tournament exhibits and food trucks. As well, two exclusive hospitality pavilions – The Bob Hope Club and Club 17 – are going to be a hot ticket at this event. With catered food and beverage in a climate-controlled indoor setting, as well as outdoor box seats, the seats in these pavilions sell out very quickly.
Check out Career Builder’s site for all of the ticket options available, which range from a $20 ticket for the pro practice rounds, all the way up to a $950 ticket for a full week in the Bob Hope Club. If you are an active duty, reserve or military retiree, you may attend any day for free, along with one guest. Paying adults can bring up to two children for free (under age 15). Don’t forget to get your parking pass!
This event is the Coachella Valley’s longest-running charitable event and has raised over $57 million for local charities and the Eisenhower Medical Center since it began in 1960.
Can I play?
Yes! There are options available for players to experience this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Players will have the option to play on some of the best courses in the Greater Palm Springs region. Check out the guide for an opportunity to play in a Pro-Am.
Can I volunteer?
If you are passionate about golf and about volunteering, this is an exciting opportunity for you to partake in. This event is always looking for volunteers and needs about 1,200 people to fill the various roles available.
