Detailed description

Golf Resort At Indian Wells, Players Course (formerly known as The East Course before it's re-design and re-opening), is a Resort, 18 hole golf course located in Indian Wells, California.

The newly re-designed course re-opened for play in November 2007. The course was designed by John Fought. The course is of the classic American golf courses design style.

The Players Course features wide playing corridors, traditional rectangular tee boxes and sculpted bunkers. Most of the holes are oriented to take full advantage of views of the surrounding mountain ranges and majestic Eisenhower Mountain to the south. As a "core golf" layout, no roads or homes intrude into the golf courses, and each hole is designed to be somewhat sheltered from the others. Fought retained many of the mature trees found on the original East Course property to impart the feel of an established course while at the same time delivering a modern approach to golf course design.

The mature tree cover and geographical location are about the only two things that the original East Course (opened in 1986) and the new Players Course have in common. By design, the Players Course is completely different than the original golf course.

The Players Course plays to a Par-72. There are 5 tee boxes, Cabernet Tees: 7,376 yards, Blue Tees 6,913 yards, White Tees 6,316 yards, Platinum Tees 5,636 yards, and Red Tees set at 5,108 yards.
