Most notably, The Academy offers expert instruction and training programs from its staff of acclaimed golf professionals. Led by director of golf Joe Williams, the team of talented instructors bring thousands of hours of combined teaching experience to the famed golf destination.

“Our team at The Academy prides itself on providing exceptional instruction and training to fit the needs of players of any and all abilities including beginners,” says Williams. “Our goal is to create a fun atmosphere of learning for all of our guests to succeed while specifically tailoring lessons to help them get the most out of their visit to Indian Wells Golf Resort.” 

In addition to its instructional facilities, the acclaimed resort’s 36 holes of exceptional golf are widely known as two of the premier public layouts in both California and the U.S. The Celebrity Course, designed by architect Clive Clark and colloquially referred to as “Beauty,” features aesthetically pleasing water features, colorful wildflowers and narrow corridors placing an emphasis on shot making.

The John Fought-designed Players Course, or “The Beast” as it’s known, is a longer, more open layout with demanding bunkering and stunning vistas of the surrounding mountain ranges. Like The Celebrity, no roads or homes encroach the course, and each hole is designed to provide a feeling of privacy and escape in the heart of the scenic Coachella Valley.
