I can’t believe how low on this list the Nicklaus tournament course appears. I actually preferred it to the PGA West Stadium course. Best of the public offerings at PGA West.

The Nicklaus Tournament course opened in 1987 and is well known to golfers world wide as it hosted a number of events over the years which were televised. Most notably it co hosted the Bob Hope Classic (now called the Career Builder Challenge), and prior to PGA West (Nicklaus Tournament) Golf Course - Photo by reviewer that the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in 1992 & 93. It continues to be the bi annual host to the final round of the PGA tours Q school.

The course is somewhat forgiving off the tee, with difficult approaches protected by sand and water. Although the Tournament course is a little overshadowed by the more famous Stadium course, they have a lot of similarities. And like the Stadium course it is the water holes that stay in the memory banks.

PGA WEST- Nicklaus Tournament Course should be a mainstay of any golf trip to Palm Springs. Don't miss it!
