Desert Dunes Golf Club in Desert Hot Springs is where Robert Trent Jones Jr. got his desert start.

But just because Desert Dunes is the first time Trent Jones Jr. manipulated the desert doesn't mean it's some mad experiment. Sometimes, the first time is one of the best times.

This is the kind of course locals play. It's not the latest resort hotspot. Instead, it strives for solid golf in an often showy setting. Spread out over 174 acres, featuring large dunes and mature desert trees, Desert Dunes offers several unique features.

There is a double green on the 9th and 18th holes with a bunker dissecting the middle of it, creating plenty of opportunity for hacker havoc.

Wild life abound on this natural setting course that uses large natural dunes and desert vegetation. Windy. Formerly, Desert Dunes. Ranked in Second 25 Best Public courses by Golf Digest.
