SilverRock Resort

SilverRock Resort reopens its award-winning Arnold Palmer Classic Course on November 5, 2013 following seasonal reseeding of its 7,568 scenic yards.

Formerly the home course of the Bob Hope Classic (2008-2011), SilverRock’s challenging course sprawls over 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 #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.
