#41: Westin Mission Hills Resort Gary Player Course, No. 5

The 5th hole on the Gary Player Course at Westin Mission Hills (Marilyn Chung/The Desert Sun)

Course name: Westin Mission Hills Resort Gary Player Course

Hole info: No. 5, par-3, 200 yards

Course address: 70705 Ramon Road, Rancho Mirage

Pro shop number: (760) 770-2980

Of note: While the course is part of the Westin Mission Hills Resort, it has a separate clubhouse and entrance than the Pete Dye Course and the main hotel.

Playing tip: While this is a downhill par-3, don’t make the mistake of thinking you can use one club less to reach the green. Water and a slope in front of the green mean taking an extra club and flirting with bunkers behind the green is called for.
