IT'S ALL ABOUT GOLF

THE COURSE

Ted Robinson course designer

Chaparral Golf Course was designed by Ted Robinson. There are several Ted Robinson designed courses in the Coachella Valley including the Marriott Desert Springs Valley and Palm courses. He also designed the Celebrity and Players golf courses at Indian Wells Golf Resort.

 

He did his executive course masterpiece at Chaparral Country Club and it is affectionately known as “The Little Monster.”

As one will see viewing the course, it is a challenging Par 60. It has six Par 4’s and twelve Par 3’s. From the back tees, the Blue Tees, the course is only 3914 yards. However, there are six Par’s 3’s that measure over two hundred yards. Hole nine has a carry of 175 yards over water and challenges the best golfers. Although there are thirteen water hazards on the golf course, most of them are negotiable. However, the water is a major issue when playing the course. It does not get the nickname for nothing. The following is a hole by hole description of the course.

How to Play

This is a short par 4 of 311 yards from the back tees. Players want to keep the ball on the left side of the fairway for the best approach into the green. The green is small and the player wants to either hit it short or get it close to the pin with a short iron. There is one area of the green that has some undulation but for the most part, it is pretty straight forward for putting.

Chaparral Country Club Driving Range

DRIVING RANGE

The driving range is located in a wash in the back of the housing development, but it is very wide and into the wind. This is helpful when learning to play golf. The range has a set of flags to indicate the distances that golfers normally hit to. In addition to the driving range, there is a short club range nearby. This short range allows players to hone their skills from ten to forty yards in distance. There is also a sand bunker to practice getting up and down out of our sand. These practice areas are used a great deal by the members to refine the skills they need to fight the “Little Monster” that our golf course is.

PRACTICE FACILITY

Chaparral Country Club has a driving range for members to practice their golf that is located off of Conejo Circle Drive. There you will find the driving range and a place to practice your pitching, chipping and sand play.

We have two putting greens located near the clubhouse for one to hone their putting skills. There is a pitching area near the clubhouse to warm up the pitch shots before playing
