Perhaps the most challenging of the three closed-to-the-public golf courses at PGA West, the Nicklaus Private Course features elevated tees, sunken fairways and unpredictable greens. And that's not to mention the spectacular views.
Once undefinedranked among the top golf courses in the world by Golf Magazine, the Nicklaus Private Course opened in 1987 and sits alongside five others at PGA West. Jack Nicklaus designed it to host the Ryder Cup Matches, though the event never came to California.
The par-72 golf course plays to just under 7,000 yards from the championship tees, essentially equal in length to the Palmer Private Course as the shortest at PGA West. But with a slope rating of 146, the Nicklaus Private Course ranks second only to PGA West's Dye Stadium Course at the 90-hole, desert resort. Each of its holes are assigned names, including some rather ominous tags like Courage, Confusion and Tension.
