The Lakes Country Club

The best maintained course in the desert

The Lakes Country Club is a private gated club situated on 380 acres in the heart of Palm Desert, CA. Built in 1983, a magnificent 50,000 square foot clubhouse including a Grill Room, fully equipped Pro Shop and a main Dining Room and Lounge overlooking the majestic Santa Rosa Mountains is at the center. A defining characteristic of the club is “The Lakes lifestyle” and a significant sense of community is expressed through a busy, diverse, year round dining, social and recreational calendar. A 5,000 square foot Fitness Center and Spa were constructed in 1997 and expanded in 2001. The grounds consist of flourishing green lawns, mature shade and ornamental trees accented with desert flowers and attractively landscaped street scenes all carefully integrated into the dominant landscape theme of golf course, lakes and waterfalls. Panoramic splendor best describes the spectacular 27-hole Championship golf course. Arguably the best maintained course in the desert, this Ted Robinson design incorporates mature shade trees, grand towering palms and Scottish-style bunkers.

True to its name, The Lakes courses bring water into play on nearly every hole. Dramatic park-like grounds surround 15 Championship tennis courts, eight lighted for play in the desert’s balmy evenings. A spectacular tennis clubhouse overlooks a lavishly landscaped center court with stadium seating. The well stocked pro shops offer the latest in apparel and equipment. There are 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. The Board oversees all operations, which are conducted by a highly professional staff under the direction of the General Manager. Each home is convenient to one or more of the many swimming pools and spas located throughout the property.

The Lakes security staff provides protection twenty-four hours a day controlling the entrance gate and regularly patrolling the community. Security cameras are located throughout the club and alarm systems in each home are monitored by security personnel.
