The Lakes Country Club is a private club on 380 acres off Country Club Drive between Cook Street and Eldorado Drive in the flourishing city of Palm Desert. The club consists of 902 condominium homes each with a unique golf course or lake view. All of the property and facilities are jointly owned and managed by the homeowners through The Lakes Country Club Association, Inc. Management is vested in a nine member Board of Directors elected by the homeowners. Q. So what makes the golfing experience so exceptional at The Lakes? A. At a time when more and more golf communities are turning their golf courses and operations over to outside companies, The Lakes Country Club is one of the few member-owned and operated golf courses in the Coachella Valley. This translates into a more positive golfing experience in a number of important ways. First and foremost, there is no outside play. Our members do not compete against members of national golf companies for preferential tee times. Our courses are not overcrowded due to over-booking tee times and are not taken out of play for public or private tournaments. Secondly, our picturesque and pristine 27-hole Ted Robinson designed golf course, featuring shade trees, towering palms and challenging water features, is maintained in pristine condition. Our golf course superintendent and his outstanding golf maintenance staff utilize state-of-the-art equipment and take great pride in ensuring the ultimate golf experience. From tee to green, the course is immaculately groomed and kept in top playing condition. Our practice areas are superb and include a driving range, 2 putting greens, 2 chipping greens, 2 practice bunkers, and an 18-hole putting course. And we have a team of outstanding golf pros on staff to help you make your game the best that it can be. We have exceptionally active Men's and Ladies 18 and 9-hole golf associations offering unlimited opportunities for socializing and friendly competition. Lakes golf events, including guest days and invitational tournaments, have earned a reputation throughout the Valley as being exceptionally well executed and are always well attended. Q. So what makes the golfing value so extraordinary at The Lakes? A. The Lakes Country Club offers not only one of the best golfing venues in the Valley, but also one of the best golfing values.
