Both courses at Indian Wells are excellent but the Celebrity Course is a lot prettier due to the vegetation/flowers.

The staff at Indian Wells is very professional and extremely accommodating.

Indian Wells Celebrity Course is one of our favorite semi-private courses in the Valley.

Sadistic Greens

Due to sadistic pin placements, lightening fast greens and very undulating greens, be ready to shoot 8 shots higher than your average.
Beautiful course and hole designs (too much sand tho), but
I’d suggest this to their grounds staff:
Greens are way too fast for the contours, and don’t have so many extreme pins, right near front or near the back.
Makes it impossible for amateurs with hdcps higher than 4 or 5.
I’m a 6 and it crushed me.
Given all that, it wasn’t even CLOSE to being worth the $.

Wonderful Example Of Resort Golg

The Celebrity Course is a wonderful representation of an upscale golf resort facility. It’s not punitive in length (five tees make it easy to find a choice that works for your game) or in green protection or crazy slopes. It’s in spectacular condition and the staff is also what you’d expect from a place like this. Everyone was so helpful … you’ll feel pampered.

Satisfy

Even though the green was very slow due to seeding. Everything else was great. Staffs are helpful and friendly. Course are beautiful and great condition. The only fall back is the cart path only. Will definitely go back again.

An Oasis in the Desert

The Celebrity course is a must play if you visit the desert. Great course that has an oasis of golf holes. They do an incredible job of framing the golf holes with flowers, water, and palm trees. Definitely challenging but so special visually!! Can't miss course!! The lower driving range isn't great at all (hard pan) but we were there in October (the off season). Great facility and the staff is wonderful!
