Course name: Westin Mission Hills Resort Gary Player Course
Hole info: No. 9, par-4, 447 yards
Course address: 70705 Ramon Road, Rancho Mirage
Pro shop number: (760) 770-2980
Of note: This is the only course in the desert designed by World Golf Hall of Famer Gary Player, one of five men to win a career Grand Slam.
Playing tip: The water to the left of the fairway and green is scary and with good reason. Most golfers will bail out to the right on the second shot, bringing a player’s short game into focus to make a par.
