SilverRock Resort

Take apart your golf game and put it back together through a series of weekly clinics starting in January at the SilverRock Golf Academy.

The clinics will feature 50-minute group sessions focused on putting, chipping, bunker play, driver, full swing and short game.

The clinics will take place Saturdays from 1-1:50 p.m. starting Jan. 4, 2014; and Thursdays from 11-11:50 a.m. starting Jan. 9. Cost is $25 per person with a limit of six people per clinic.

Reservations are being taken in the golf shop on a first come, first served basis. For more information, call the golf shop at 760-777-8884.

Formerly the home course of the Bob Hope Classic (2008-2011), SilverRock’s challenging course covers more than 200 acres with massive native bunkers and stunning water features set against the backdrop of the majestic Santa Rosa Mountains.

The course opened in 2005 and quickly garnered prestigious awards including: Top Ten New Courses You Can Play in America, Golf Magazine, 2005; Rated No. 1 in the Palm Springs Area, Greenskeeper.org; Best Tour Courses You Can Play, Golfweek Magazine, 2009, 2010, 2011; Best Municipal Golf Courses, Golfweek Magazine, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012; America’s Top Golf Courses, Zagat, 2008, 2009, 2010,  2011, 2012;  and  Best of the Best, Public Golf Courses, Palm Springs Life, 2012.

The clubhouse, situated in the rocky outcroppings, is a charming renovation of the former working ranch hacienda built by Mr. and Mrs. Howard Ahmanson of Home Savings & Loan renown. Housed within the clubhouse is the SilverRock Grill, with a beautiful outdoor patio and awe inspiring mountain views. The restaurant serves breakfast (served all day) and lunch selections from a newly updated menu.

Resort amenities include golf carts equipped with complimentary GPS systems providing instant yardages; one of the Valley’s largest all grass driving ranges; and PGA instruction.

SilverRock Resort is owned by the City of La Quinta and is managed by Landmark Golf Management. Planning is underway for expansion to 36 holes of championship golf, a world-class practice center, retail venues, luxury boutique hotels and more.

For information or to book golf instruction, contact Randy Duncan: (760) 777-8884, ext. 4.
