PGA WEST, TPC Stadium Course (La Quinta, California)

If you’re seeking multiple adrenaline rushes throughout your round, on a course revered for its brash and intriguing design, there might not be a greater test of golf than what awaits you on the TPC Stadium Course at PGA West and La Quinta Resort and Club. Each hole on this Pete Dye-designed masterpiece has a character all its own, with endless variety and rewarding challenges awaiting you at every fairway and green.

PGA WEST TPC Stadium Course

Legends have made history on this par-72, 7,300-yard jewel known for its unique undulations, cavernous bunkers, and signature par-3 island green. With five sets of tees the Stadium Course is playable for golfers of all skill levels.

There’s plenty of drama and even a hint of mystery on TPC Stadium’s final three-hole stretch that will probably linger in your mind until you visit again. The thrill ride begins with a treacherous risk-reward par-5 16th hole named San Andreas Fault. Next up is the short par-3 17th hole – a menacing island green known as Alcatraz that can easily leave you drenched. And finally, the intimidating par-4, 18th hole is high drama and shaky knees on every shot with water running along the entire left edge from tee to green.

Cascata Golf Club (Boulder City, Nevada)

Cascata Golf Club

Every golfer should experience Cascata Golf Club at least once in their lifetime. Designed by renowned architect Rees Jones, and located only 30 minutes from the Las Vegas strip, this 8th Wonder of the Golfing World opened for business in 2000 and is already considered one of the finest designs on the planet.

Cascata is Italian for “waterfall,” and the name is appropriate. This par-72, 7,137-yard hidden treasure climbs up and down a steep mountain hillside with a 418-foot waterfall flowing and tumbling over mammoth boulders, eventually making its way down the club clubhouse and tranquil stream below. The course plays uphill on the front, downhill on the back, and the 9th tee sits 600 feet above the clubhouse.

Few places on earth offer the extravagance of Cascata Golf Club. If you’re ready for an uncompromising experience of unforgettable golf, you can book your Cascata Golf Club tee times here in the 18Birdies app.
