La Quinta’s beautiful desert vistas make the perfect backdrop to any outdoor activity, and The Quarry Golf Club takes the sport above and beyond. Winding through the mountainous desert landscape as if it grew from the sands, this exclusive club blends with the scenery to provide an experience that is like no other, and is carefully designed for an optimal golfing run. There’s simply no other desert golf course in the nation quite like it: a true La Quinta gem.
Scenery that Must Be Seen
Nestled at the base of the beautiful Coral and Santa Rosa mountains, The Quarry offers a three-tier layout and design that sets it apart from any other desert golfing experience. Courses are designed such that the ball does not stray too much from play, streamlining games and limiting downtime, as well as granting more accessibility for all levels of golfing skill and experience. Many desert golf courses can be frustrating to players not acquainted with the scenery and natural hazards, but The Quarry’s skillful design prevents these annoyances while still retaining its lush desert looks. While enjoying the sport, players can take in the breathtaking scenery: the natural bearded palm trees give a rugged desert feel to the neatly trimmed emerald greens, watered by the beautiful man-made lakes and waterfalls thundering from the rocky brown mountains towering in the distance.
Living Social at The Quarry
Golf is what The Quarry lives for, but the sport isn’t all it has to offer its members. While many equally upscale golf clubs require onsite real estate ownership to maintain a membership, The Quarry has no such restrictions. Members may enjoy The Quarry’s lively social scene without onsite home ownership, and the club offers guest cottage rentals for any members wishing to stay the night. The Quarry’s property is cleverly designed such that all onsite residencies are hidden from view, to not spoil the scenery of the golfing greens – and to ensure that no stray balls end up drifting onto members’ properties. Card games and book clubs are perfect choices to wind down after a day on the greens, while those wishing to further explore the area’s lush mountainous scenery can join on hikes around the area.
Accolades from the Golfing Community
The course has reaped its share of glowing reviews and awards from the greater golfing community. It remains a perennial favorite of Golf Digest for the past fifteen years: it has consistently ranked in their biennial Top 100 listing of the best courses in the nation. It plays host to six events during the year, and has entertained golfing legends like John Daly, Tiger Woods, and many more. It remains a critical darling of private reviewers as well, remaining well-reviewed across the board on the top sites in golfing society.
The Quarry’s greens are a must-visit for any golf aficionado, La Quinta residents and guests alike. It showcases the best and brightest sights that the desert has to offer, and will allow you to take in the towering mountains and lush palms as you tour the courses to your heart’s content.
