From the club website:
Tradition Golf Club, established in 1997, is truly the most spectacular golf course in the entire desert. The Arnold Palmer signature golf course plays against the Santa Rosa Mountains for much of the 18 holes. Playing to a member’s yardage of 6515 yards, Tradition is one of those facilities that one never gets tired of. Ample fairways, with lightning fast greens, and Augusta White bunker sand, complements the daily condition to a tee. Although the first 16 holes are spectacular, the 17th hole is the true signature hole of the club. Playing from an elevated tee, your tee shot will drop over 200 hundred feet to the fairway below. The fairway, guarded by the Santa Rosa Mountains on the right and a fairway bunker and water hazard on the left, may be the finest view in all of La Quinta.
