The 5th hole at the Indian Wells Golf Resort Players Course (Marilyn Chung/The Desert Sun)

Course name: Indian Wells Golf Resort Players Course

Hole info: No. 5, par-4, 469 yards

Course address: 44500 Indian Wells Lane, Indian Wells

Of note: The re-design on this layout, once known as the East Course, was done by former PGA Tour pro and now architect John Fought.

Playing tip: The one place you can’t hit it off the tee here is into the right native desert and rough, a place that makes reaching the green in two shots impossible. There is plenty of room to drive the ball to the left part of the fairway.
