Eldorado Country Club

Indian Wells, CA Private

Overview

Eldorado Country Club, located in the Coachella Valley, hosted the 1959 Ryder Cup, when Sam Snead captained the American team to a dominating victory over Great Britain. That was played on the original Lawrence Hughes designed track; in the early 2000s, Tom Fazio led an extensive redesign of the course, notably adding plenty of water to both toughen the course and add aesthetic appeal. Still, it remains a player-friendly layout, with forgiving fairways and large greens that often allow players to run shots up onto the surfaces.
