The Players course at Indian Wells Golf Resort is a fun, challenging golf course located in Indian Wells, CA just outside Palm Springs. The course opened in 2007 and was designed by John Fought. In 2011, The Golf Channel’s Big Break Indian Wells was contested here, and in 2015 Golfweek ranked the Players course #19 on their list of “Top 25 Best Courses You Can Play” in California.
The resort is owned by Troon Golf, which owns golf clubs all over the U.S., including a few other popular Palm Springs golf resorts – namely PGA West and Westin Mission Hills. Troon also owns Kapalua in Maui.
