Palm Springs casinos becoming major players in the golf scene
The casinos in Palm Springs are moving into the golf business like never before, coming up with their own courses.
Fantasy Springs Resort Casino has a new Clive Clark design that’s reportedly as showy as something Donald Trump would dream up.
“They’ve taken it to the next level,” said Tim Hurja, a PGA pro who now runs Palm Springs Golf Central, a hotel and golf packaging company. “Clive Clark is supposed to have a 100-foot waterfall on this thing.”
Fantasy Springs already had its own huge, high tech bowling alley. Now, a waterfall to make The Donald swoon.
As the Coachella Valley casinos keep expanding and turning more Las Vegas like, they’re starting to turn to golf. Having your own linked course is quickly becoming the new big thing.
The bonus is that with these being Indian casinos, the courses do not need a major housing element. There are only going to be houses on four of the 18 holes at Fantasy Springs according to developers, a rarity indeed in Palm Springs.
The course is set for a formal grand opening in February, but a few golfers are already playing it now as it operates under the radar.
For the complete review of Fantasy Springs’ new course and the lowdown on Palm Springs’ continuing transformation into a golf and gambling mecca, stay tuned to GolfCalifornia.com in the coming weeks.
