Mission Statement

The Mission of The Lakes Country Club is to provide all members, family and guests premier golf, racquet sports, fitness, dining and social experiences in a relaxed and comfortable environment. The Club will operate in a transparent and responsive manner with members and will treat each member, guest and employee with dignity and respect. The Club will maintain the highest ethical standards and will create a sense of community and a positive environment for all our members.

The Lakes Country Club is a privately-gated club situated on 380 acres in the heart of Palm Desert, CA.  Built in 1983, a magnificent 50,000 sq. ft. clubhouse including a grill room, fully equipped Pro Shop, 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 sq. ft. 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. 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 championship tennis courts, 9 hard, 2 clay with 8 lighted for evening play. 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.

We have recently opened up our membership to Nonresidents.

902 condominium homes are situated each with a unique golf course or lake view. 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 24/7 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. Whether they are in residence weekends, winters or year round, our members bring their diverse backgrounds and life experiences to the community. Camaraderie is our watchword and the result is the most friendly, caring, supportive and fun loving club in the Coachella Valley.  From sports and recreation to dining and social events, there is something for everyone!
