Many PGA Tour players have played La Quinta Country Club, whether in the Desert Classic (formerly the Bob Hope Classic), or with political or other dignitaries. Here's what they had to say...

La Quinta's greens are “among the best on tour.”

     - Phil Mickelson - PGA Tour Player

“This is a great course. We won’t see better conditions all year.”

     - Charley Hoffman - PGA Tour Player

“The best conditioned course in the [Bob Hope Classic] rotation – probably the best we will see this year.”

      - Hunter Mahan – PGA Tour Player

“Your [La Quinta Country Club’s] greens are the best I have ever played.”

      - Tommy Armour III – PGA Tour Player

“The greens were just absolutely perfect to putt on,” Allenby said. “I mean, they are probably some of the truest greens we ever get to putt on at La Quinta. They have great speed on them. I felt like I was going to make everything.”

      - Robert Allenby – PGA Tour Player (Desert Sun – Larry Bohannan)
