GOLF Tournament

Exceptional Golf Experience in Palm Springs

Blending championship golf with a classic Palm Springs setting, a round at Escena Golf Club is as much about the surroundings as it is about unforgettable golf.

The towering San Jacinto Mountains and blue desert skies frame the flight of every tee shot. Abundant palm trees, native desert landscaping and dramatic waterscapes add to the sensory feast as you wind your way through this stunning oasis. A meal or a drink in the stunning mid-century environs of the Escena Grill is a perfect way to round out your day.

Of course, the golf is memorable, too. Ranked as the #6 Public Course in California by PGATOUR.com, this Nicklaus Design golf course is noted for its unobstructed sightlines, generous driving corridors and the overall strength of its design. Strategically placed bunkers, water hazards and undulating greens are there before you, but at the same time there is ample room for you to decide how much you want to flirt with them. With back tees stretching to nearly 7,200 yards, Escena offers a formidable test for the skilled player, but with four sets of tees and room to roam, how you satisfy your personal appetite for challenge is entirely up to you.
